The end of the year is nigh and it is time for resolutions, calendars and journals. Here are some options. Jonathan David always had a deep affection for dogs, which led him to adopt Lily, an indie who recently celebrated her 14th birthday. “Alongside my role as a research scientist at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, where I specialize in developing molecular diagnostic tests for canine diseases, I have cultivated my artistic side as a freelance charcoal pet artist,” says Jonathan

Every year, Jonathan compiles a calendar, wall and desktop, featuring the dogs sketched from the previous year. These fun, expressive pictures come with a quote written by Jonathan’s sister, Abigail. “I support Charlie Animal Rescue Centre (CARE) and allocate 10% of my profits from the sale of these calendars to CARE.”

The undated journal, Kanika says, celebrates the journey of life. “It helps you pen your goals, gratitude and to-do lists. I have been making notes and journaling and this practice has helped me gain clarity,” says the Bengaluru-based graphic designer and JJ School of Art topper. The journal is part of series that includes a Love Letters to Krishna and a Japa Diary. Zindagi Gulzar Hai comes with inspirational quotes (from Rumi and Albert Einstein to Saint Augustine), a space for a to-do list, wins of the day and things you are grateful for on the day.
