Smiling Is Infectious
Author Unknown
(But Greatly Appreciated! )


Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realized
I'd passed it on to him .

I thought about that smile
then I realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected,
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

I smile and laugh, when I talk to friends and when I spend time with my children.What makes YOU smile? Do tell me--I'd love to know.

  1. So many things make me smile :-) My friends, things I read in blogs, comedy...all sorts of stuff really.

    I love that poem and it's true! Psychological studies have proven that people do respond to a smile even if they don't know you.

  3. What makes me smile is when something unexpectedly positive happens. Like today I was outside planting flowers and not enjoying it too much due to all the noise, traffic and dirt from the house being built next door. Then, one of the contractors stopped by because he had found a skateboard in the empty lot and didn't want to run over it or bury it. Even though it wasn't mine, it was such a nice, thoughtful thing for him to do.

  6. Is'nt it strange how sometimes you smile at someone in the street and you can see them thinking.."Do I know you?"..some people almost react as if you're invading their space!..I love to smile...I love invading peoples spaces with happiness!

  9. have read this somewhere before...I think..can't be sure.

    what makes me smile? lots of things...
    which type of smile are you referring to?
    I have many smiles.
    food and sweets induces a childish smile with sparkling eyes, a touch of greed and gluttony follows.

    kids playing induce a pleasant friendly smile..peaceful and heartfelt.

    madcap profs and geeky apple polishing students help spread a deviant grin on my face, once again the eyes sparkle..with a hint of mischief.

    women, very few make me smile, but when I do it is usually cocky, showing pride and confidence..and a little ego too.

    for my foes, I reserve a maniacal grin that would make you think I have escaped from a mental asylum...

    guess..kids rule..they are the ones that can make me smile frequently.

  13. A smile can make not only your own day but also has the impact of making someones day even better. A small thing like smiling gets people to open gates which otherwise would be shut and also their going out of the ways to help you out. Not saying that you sshould use it to benefit yourself, but just that it costs you nothing and ensures people around you also become happy. A smile can also ensure the strain you face in day to day life vanishes... Therefore Dr Shenoy says keep smiling. :)

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 :)
