I am in love!




I’m in love!!

Is it possible to be in love with more than one? I’m in love and there are three of them! Which one shall I choose? They are all equally cute, charming and more than happy to see me! Who is right for me?

Yes, you guessed it—I am talking about these pups. In the complex where I stay there is a dog by the name of “Rani”.Rani belongs to nobody in particular and has no pedigree to boast of . All of us feed her and she visits all of us in turns! She gave birth to six adorable puppies last month. Every day, the kids have been talking about them. Yesterday, I went to see them and I am totally in love with them. Three of the pups, have already been adopted and there are only three more left. I do so badly want to bring a pup home. My kids and I, have been using all our charm to convince my husband. (He is not too fond of dogs, and even if we get one, he says it has to be a pure bred, not a stray) I tried telling my husband that, to a dog, it makes no difference if he is a pure bred or a stray!

Using all my powers of persuasion I’ve finally convinced him to just come and have a look at the puppies and he says he will, but I think he just said it so that I’d keep quiet and let him have his peace!! I’m hoping that they charm him, as much as they charmed me. Will keep you posted if I succeed. (But why do I just get this feeling that it is a lost cause, even before I’ve started?)

Just look at these pups. How can anyone not find them cute?!!

  1. My husband has an allergy to dogs -- we'll never have one. But these puppies are WONDERFUL! How big is the Mama?

    Purebred animals tend to have more health problems, I believe.

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
