“What happened?” asked Kalyani.

“What? Nothing happened” said Lakshmi and looked at Sahana as if asking for her approval. Sahana kept a puppy face and nodded innocently.

“Why is she sneezing? Did you people buy her ice cream?”

“NO” said all of them in unison!

Somehow Lakshmi’s mother seemed to drop the topic finally after she heard her milk cooker whistle loudly.

After a week, Lakshmi was getting ready to college. She was looking angelic in the white full sleeved salwar kameez.

Sahana gasped, “Wow, you are beautiful”.

“Thanks, you are cute too.”

“When I grow up I want to be like you.”

“You will be more beautiful than me by the way how come you aren’t getting ready yet?”

“It’s leave for me.”


“Study leave”

“What? Study leave?”


“What did you achieve to have a study leave?”

“Aaaahhh you brat” he screamed as Sahana bit his hands sharply. Lakshmi used this opportunity to pull Sahana away from him and kick on his balls precisely. He groaned in pain and people started surrounding. A middle aged man came near Lakshmi and asked, “Are you okay?” As he tried to come close to her a bossy and dominating voice said, “She is okay, you were smoking when this man tried to kill me and now you are acting like as if you saved her.” Everyone stared at Sahana who was spitting and rubbing her teeth. Lakshmi told softly, “don’t spit on road.” “I feel irritated after biting him, nasty taste.” Everyone laughed and their laughter silenced as Sahana stared back at them. Seeing their sympathetic glances she was more irritated. Vijay, the bulky huge bully woke up from the ground and stared at Lakshmi and the crowd as he walked away. Few of the men gave ideas to hand him over to the police however another bossy voice said, “What is the use, he is in film industry. He will come out just like that.” Lakshmi saw Meenama, her housemaid standing there. She said, “Just now I saw the crowd and came in dear. He was troubling you again, wasn’t he?” “Ya” said Lakshmi feebly. Continue reading

Cool Jean Bags – Time pass Tuesdays 7

Hi Folks,

We girls can never feel enough about anything right? We never get satisfied easily be it kisses, hugs, chocolates, bags, accessories, dresses, shoes we want a lots and lots of them. I am no exception, I thought of why not make a cool jean bag out of my old pair of denims? Thus I ended up with this. Last week I demonstrated on how to make denim mobile pouches in Time pass Tuesdays 6. This week lets explore how to make a jean bag as shown.



The Bag made by me from an old jeans 🙂


  • An old pair of jeans
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Machine or needle and thick thread.
  • Old Fabric
  • Old Accessories (Optional)
  • Zip/Button Magenet
  • Fabric Glue.


The method is quite simple. All you got to do are these 5 simple steps.

  1. Cut the jean on the back pocket area as in the pic, cut a similar cloth from the thigh area of jeans for the other side (avoid using slim-fit jeans).
  2. Now sew them together from inside.
  3. Make a belt or thick tape out of some left out fabric and sew it on the mouth of your bag for enriched look.
  4. Add accessories like charms, chains, embroidery flowers, hearts etc. to enrich the look.
  5. Stick button magnets or zip with a fabric glue to close the mouth if your bag.

That’s it, you are done. Now you can have your own bag that you made.

Try this out folks,

Love & Cheers,


I am S(t)ri

Monster Utility Stand – Time pass Tuesdays – 5

Hi Folks,

Are you one among the lot who buys shampoo in bottles? Well, most of us buy that way don’t we? Actually one of my friends enlightened me that buying bottled shampoo is costlier than sachet ones. Yeah! I always thought the bigger the better but it isn’t so. The sachet of Sunsilk is approximately 8ml sold at INR 2. The 100ml bottle is sold for INR 59. If you had bought the shampoo in sachet for that 100ml it would cost you INR 26 for 13 sachets (104ml in total). However, I am comfortable in getting a bottle; reason 1 – my brand and my flavor of the shampoo don’t have a sachet, reason 2 – I wash my hair often, I might forget to get sachets or if I bought in lump someone or other might as well use it (my family members don’t dare to touch if it is a bottle – I don’t why they don’t use my bottled shampoo but take away my sachets 😛 ). So, if you are one like me who is worried about using shampoo in bottles but can’t help it then here is the way. You can make this simple monster utility stand from your used shampoo bottles.


Monster Utility Stand Which I Made – I use it as my cosmetics holder.

Art from Waste – A Pretty Flower Vase cum Pen Holder – Time Pass Tuesdays 4

Hi Folks,

Being a girl and using so many and not so many creams, lotions, shampoos, leaves you with an enormous load of waste empty bottles. Previously, my mom used to throw it to the waster-paper-plastic-vendor who in turn pays her money or some other handy vessels, etc. However, I always felt that was again a waste. For some 20-30 bottles, she gets may be 20 bucks. Therefore, I decided that I am throwing away the bottles to vendors like how she does. That’s when these constructive ideas popped up. Always my mom has admired beautiful desk accessories, vases, etc in my friends’ and relatives’ houses. Continue reading

Review of “The One You Cannot Have” – A Novel by Preeti Shenoy

Hi Folks,

Okay! This time it is no craft or art work display. This week’s Time pass Tuesday is about my review of the latest novel by Preeti Shenoy. “The One You Cannot Have”.

The One You Cannot Have is a fiction novel by famous author Preeti Shenoy. She is a talented and renowned author to many but to me she is more than that she is a role model, a mentor, a fabulous person. I have admired all her works (yeah, she apart from writing does paper quiling, mixed media and portraits also). She is author of five best sellers, blogger, mother of two lovely kids (well one is a teen now), Nature Lover, Ted X Speaker. I have been influenced by her since college days (I attend her Ted X talks). She is a woman who makes other women want to be her. Continue reading
