I’ve actually asked Samita to give me a personal feng shui reading so I will keep you all informed! Karen, editor It is incredible to see the bond Anand Shinde and the elephants shared. We will keep you updated on his story.
Since visiting Singapore, known for feng shui tours, I have been fascinated by the practice, and have read as much as I can on it. So imagine my delight when I spotted Friday’s feature, ‘How to feng shui your life’ (February 13), and read how decluttering and changing the colours and decor of your house can change your luck, health and wealth.
The expert, Samita Khanna, very lucidly explained the principles behind the ‘science’ and suggested easy-to-do steps. I’ve actually cut out and kept those pages for reference and have even shared the online link with my friends.
Thank you for the lovely feature!
The feng shui article in last week’s Friday was interesting and the expert’s tips are very easy to follow. As soon as I finished reading the article I moved the shoe rack away from the right-hand side of my door – which is the wealth area of the home – as I can’t afford to risk that!
Clearing clutter – as advised by your feng shui expert in last week’s magazine – does make life easier. I used to be a hoarder, accumulating a lot of unnecessary things. But the article made me realise that I was surrounded by things I no longer needed and that were just collecting dust. I took the first step of clearing my wardrobe, which was a lot to tackle as I have so many clothes. But I already feel better and much more organised. I’m going to continue clearing next weekend.
How amazing was the feature on the photographer who gave up his job to help injured elephants (‘The elephant whisperer’, February 13)? It was incredibly moving and the photographs of him with the animals were extremely touching – revealing the human side of the large mammals. Please publish more such features.
Ifound the Friday article on elephants – about a photographer in India who quit his job to spend all his time helping animals – very interesting. The part I enjoyed most was when Anand Shinde started to communicate with Krishna. It seems truly amazing. However, I was sad when I learnt that Krishna later died from the injuries he sustained when he fell into a pit and broke his leg. The pictures of the elephants were really cute. I think this is the best article I read in this week’s issue.
Last week’s interview with master chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who is one of the best chefs India has ever produced, was very interesting and insightful. Although I am only an occasional cook, I used to watch his programmes on various Indian TV channels. I have a few of his cookbooks on my bookshelf as well. It’s interesting that he initially wanted to become an architect and then later strayed into the kitchen. It’s just as well too, or we would have lost out on a good chef.
