Timeouts!






“I don’t want to go to school tomorrow!” Nate announced loud and clear when he entered his home and sat down with a sulk.

“What happened, honey?” Mom was quick to take the eight-year-old in her lap.

The Mom continued to tickle and caress.

After a couple of minutes, he blurted, “My teacher gives me a lot of timeouts!”  

There was silence.

“I’m sure you cannot identify what is right and what is wrong,” said Mom as she gently stroked his arm, “These timeouts are like a chisel. They will help you recognize and analyze your behavior, going forward.”

A Mouse in the House



"Oh God! We have a mouse in the house!" I shrieked as I announced to my family. My son sitting on the couch was quick to pull his legs and cross them over. "Where! Where!" he inquired in an equally high-pitched scream. 

"It's in the bedroom!"

I was now waiting restlessly for my husband to take some action. Instead, he continued to work on his laptop unperturbed of what I just announced! 

I repeated it this time in a higher decibel.

He looked up with a sense of calm, "Relax! It's the door. It needs oiling at the hinges!"

The Auditory Range



"Kate!" Mom shouted her name in a high decibel while tapping the glass window to get her attention.

Kate clad in a thick jacket, and gloves were playing fetch with her labrador. 

Giggles and woof was a mere expression thanks to her ear muffs that canceled the noise out.

Mom gave in to the situation and pulled open the window with all her stamina.

That sudden force caused the fresh snow to fall with a thud from the rooftop.

"Mom!" Kate cried out, but it fell on a deaf ear to Mom since her daughter was buried in snow!

Her latest hot romances have all been on #1 Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualizing what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Portrait Painting: A great way to preserve and cherish those precious memories.



A memory is something that lasts an entirety. 
It’s the pages in the scrapbook of our life.
We all know that the more colorful the pages, the better the scrapbook.
Good memories give us hope, and a bad experience makes us ponder upon thus making our life more valuable.
“Memories are special moments that tell our story.”
They liven up our life and existence, but Alas! Everything shall fade away some day with time. 


Thus it is in your best interest you choose a way to preserve and cherish these moments for an extended period.

A personalized portrait painting is a perfect way to capture the true essence and importance of memory.
A picture can serve as a great reminder too, but the visual appeal and creativity that is required for the painting will make it even more special.
It adds another layer of ethnicity to it. Apart from the stunning appeal it also has a close connection with your heart.
This is because you have lived that moment in its entire glory.


Every time you see the portrait painting, it shall transport you back to that time and place and bring an immeasurable smile to your face.
The people and time we appreciate the most should always have a special place in our hearts.
Getting a customized painted portrait is one of the best ways to remind you about those moments.
Let the colors flow free and leave an everlasting impression on the canvas because paints are only the medium and memories are the real emotions behind them.
You can get your very own customized portrait painting at Portrait flip.



They offer you a wide variety of choices with mediums which are a charcoal portrait, handmade oil portrait, watercolor portrait, acrylic portrait, pencil sketch portrait, and color pencil sketch portrait.
All of them are available to you at economical prices.
The meaningful relationships and moments you have had over time make life worth it all.
No regrets for though there may have been times when you could have done or acted better, you have had your fair share of awesome moments.
A moment or a picture may get lost into oblivion but not a moment that left us with a golden memory.
 That moment is dear to our heart and will forever be with us.


A portrait painting is, in fact, a great way to relive these memories with glory and enthusiasm and some nostalgia.
The time once gone and the stone once thrown can never return, what only stays is what we remember and how we want to remember it.
The most important thing we can gain from cherishing such memories is hope and faith.
Faith that no matter what happens there are always better times and good people to stand by your side.
It is an essential reminder to ourselves that we should remain confident and excited at every stage of our life.
There comes the point in every person’s life when he/she doubts the purpose behind his or her existence.
They doubt the fact whether something good or better will ever happen?
At such times a unique portrait painting of a moment dear to you shall provide and lend the perfect support to you.


“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
                                      -Pablo Picasso
Time may fly but the memories last forever!

Love to Let Go!


Sarah aimed her long stem glass at him, but instead, it hit the floor crashing into multiple pieces. 

She could see her slivered heart in each of those broken fragments as she wept uncontrollably. 

He looked from a distance but dared not to come near.

Minutes ticked by, which seemed endless to both.

“Go, Live your way!” 

“Thank you” he squealed and exited the room with a flying kiss at her. 

 ‘Love is to Let Go!’ Sarah muttered as she wiped her tears and got up to clean the mess while her beau traveled continents to live his passion.
