Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  2. I love the lizards point of view!
    I'm such a freak I would have tried to convince my husband to let me keep it. I have to adopt just about everything I come across. Except for the flying roaches. In San Antonio they have huge, flying roaches. They usually stay outside in the fields, sometimes they come inside. Inside is bad. One of them fell on my husband while he was taking a shower. He came tearing out of the bathroom, screaming like a woman, with the shower curtain wrapped around him. I told him he should do that at least once a week because it was so funny. He said something to me that was very, very, crude. He has no sense of humor sometimes. Of course if it had landed on me it would have been a totally different story. A totaly trauma and a national tragedy. News at 11.

  3. Oh, too funny!! I love that you got pictures and that you also told the story from the lizard's point of view! Fair is fair. ;) OK, tell your husband he's a wimp for not coming to your aid, ha!

  4. Ha ha, very funny! But I still can't believe that your husband was scared of the lizard! But I do understand your blogoholic tendency! I hope no one called police after hearing your psycho scream:).But just wondering how did you get that insight into the lizard's thought ? you can talk to animals ?

  5. Rayne's story about the roaches in the shower was so funny!I laughed out loud.Thank God,it was just a garden lizard that came itnot mine.If it was a roach that landed on my head,it would have been a REAL psycho scream--not a faked one:-)

  8. This is awesome! My first reaction after seeing the picture was to scream in cyber space. But then again, I don't have a real-time husband who would save the fake damsel in cyber distress. And I think it would also look uber stupid! :D

    You have such a fertile imagination.This is my first segue to your blog and love your posts so far

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)
