Death and Life


Made this painting a little while ago.
“What is life,except excuse for death, or death but an escape from life”
“Desire is half of life; Indifference is half of death”
--Kahlil Gibran
On a large enough time line, the survival rate for everyone will drop to zero.
--Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

  1. The woman in your painting almost looks like she has wings adn yet there is a line connecting her to something? I love the bold colours :-) When I look at this piece I get a feeling of depth, that the woman is floating in this 'space'.

    I particulalry liked the second quote - indifference is a lack of feeling adn passion adn therefore it is certainly akin to death.

  2. If we didn't know we were going to die one day, we'd never create such wonderful thoughts, words, art...etc. Death is life too :)

  3. "Life is nature's way of keeping meat fresh"...."I'm not affraid of dying, I just don't want to be there at the time"-Woody Allen.

    I like the way you alter the angle of perception..has she fallen onto the ground?..is she an angel?..is the scar a sign of a tortured life?..a line of ants..reminds me of Salvadore Dali..I don't know why, but I like it.

  4. See all that red there? Yeah. Well, I think she's just angry because she's upside down. Women!

  5. You have a K.G. quote in there. I'd better go snag Blue The Spa Girl and get her butt over here for the party.

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 :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)
