I am a big fan of cartoon shows. During my childhood, there weren’t many but we absolutely adored the few comic books we could get hold of. But those days are nothing compared to the abundance we have now – as I found out when my son started watching TV as a toddler. I would invariably watch with him, also to keep an eye on what he was being exposed to. I still do – even though he’s away at college! One of the shows we both adore even today is SpongeBob SquarePants. I love his indomitable spirit and his constant cheerfulness. I remember teasing my son, asking him if he was SpongeBob or Squidward? Why, when he was 10, he even wrote a little essay on his favorite TV show.

My hands were full, in more ways than one. Fast forward a little – and nature took its course. My son…

Please welcome my friend Corinne Rodrigues of Everyday Gyaan today on The Red Carpet. I am thrilled that she’s here with this blog’s 1001th post! (1-0-0-1. Yeah!) We’ve known each other for over a decade now. We share a happy friendship that is built on encouraging each other, nudging each other to flap our wings and fly, and urging each other to do what we are so capable of. I am grateful for my connection with her and I am glad that it is a rare day when we do not chat. Corinne Rodrigues hardly needs an introduction, but I am giving you one anyway. In her words, she is “A Mumbai-based blogger, writer, motivator – journeying happily through midlife.” In my words, she’s a solid driving force in motivating all those connected with her, without expecting anything in return. In fact, she slogs her rear off to go out…
