“As a ‘lotus’ flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I was born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”

Here’s sharing the bookspace of Nirmala and Krupanandh’s home in
Here’s what Nirmala has to say about her love for books and the space featured herein:
“We have our little library in the landing of our home on the 2nd floor. The double height ceiling makes this an ideal place to relax as well as be in touch with what's happening downstairs. I was particular to have a place at home that would be 'my space' and since my space is all about books, this is the exactly what I got.”
“My book collection ranges from those that are 35-40 years to some of the best sellers of this day.
I still am into reading the books I used to read ever so long back and there is a trend where I keep putting back on the shelves those books that were lost or didn't last long enough. We have also bought many books back in
and shuttled it back here now. I fondly remember especially how we enjoyed shopping on the ship named 'Doulous' which docked in AUH in 2005-06.....it's a ship that travels the world carrying books of every imaginable kind.” Abu Dhabi
“Another event I used to enjoy would happen every year at Cambridge School, Abu Dhabi where I taught, called 'the book week' where each class would choose a book as their theme for the week and everything in the classroom to the costumes worn by the staff and students depicted characters from the chosen book! “
“In our library area, we have also our puja area and the special Buddha (we purchased at Global Village). I feel reading is such a serene activity that only the Buddha and a puja area would go with a books. I transferred my son’s college books there so he feels the need to peep into the puja room whenever he goes up for his books especially in the morning!”
“I have also arranged the books in a slightly mixed-up manner. I take great pleasure in lingering there a few extra minutes looking for the book I want and also suddenly finding a book that I thought we didn't have.....it's a good feeling.”
“I also specially asked for a book shelf with doors since it makes cleaning.”
