Thinking..Thinking blogger award.

Bob-Kat had a nice surprise for me yesterday. She awarded me a “Thinking blogger award.” Yesterday being All fools day, I did not react immediately. The waspish cynic lurking inside me felt happy, but did not want to be fooled .So I waited until today. Then I realized I had been a fool anyway, as her post was dated 31st March!

Part of the honour of being nominated is also that I get to give it to five blogs that make me think. There are many blogs that I like, but ones which make me think---well, I had to really think! I went by contents of the blog,on what issues the blogger wrote about .Did it make me stop and think? Did it affect me in any way?

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


Here are my choices.

Love is stronger than pride by Devil mood : She posts about different things. At times, introspective, at times about issues that she feels strongly about, at times photos, but every time, it makes me think!

Forever England by Tim Young: It’s a poetry blog. I was delighted when I first discovered it. He writes instant poetry—some of them really touch me deeply—and almost all of them make me think.

TO&TFTBG by Paul: He posts a collection of quotes or things that inspire him or make him laugh. He writes about movies that affect him too. Each of his posts really make me think.

Hooky Beach by Somewhere Joe: Each of his posts are a masterpiece. His simplicity and his acute power of observation, and also what he writes about, really makes me think.

The fifth one, I really could not decide. There are so many posts that made me think. But not the whole blog. There is a blog (Damn,it’s a shitpot) which I discovered recently and one of the posts made me think . Pardon the language—I don’t find it offensive. But if you do, please refrain from reading.Tyler Durden's latest post made me think too.
One of Gawpo’s posts really moved me and made me think.A lot.

The participation rules of the award are simple:

1) If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
2) Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3) Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

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

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.
