I love this guy!

He came unannounced, uninvited
Like he owned the place
And everyone around.
He took what he wanted
And left

When he had his fill .
He is elusive and charming
Clever and quick .
Oh! How I love this guy!
I wait for him
And when I see him
I am going to ask him
To give me my heart back.

  1. Just landed on your blog as I was browsing on the ‘next blog’ link .It was great reading about the squirrel. We too have had a similar experience over the past few months. I stay on the 2nd floor of an apartment in Thane , a suburb of Bombay, India. Our city was redone about 10 years ago and went on to win the best and clean city of India . Our area has a beautiful lake and lots of greenery .The trees have grown thick over the past 10 years .attracting a variety of birds. We are happy that we have nursed the nature back to its ecological balance and rescued the city from heading to a modern urban disaster
    One day my 17 year old daughter screamed near the kitchen window saying she saw a rat. I went to the drawing room to peep out and have a view from outside and was surprised to see a squirrel among the many flower pots that I have. I went back to my childhood days when we had so many squirrels in the busy city of Bombay.
    Our squirrel climbs and scampers on the building walls, peeping into the kitchens and trying to make friends with its constant chattering. We miss it when at times it doesn’t show up.
    Say Hi to your squirrel friend from all of us.

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)

6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.

For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
