Happy birthday Purvi!

Picture clicked this morning --Purvi turned 6 today.

On this day, 6 years ago,
You came into this world
At the break of dawn.

We named you Purvi
Which means “From the east”
Like the rising sun.

You were now outside of me
I could no longer feel
You kicking or turning within.

Yet, I feel every heartbeat
Every emotion, Every joy
Powerfully--like you are me.

You smile and my world lights up
I wait for you to come back from school
With outstretched arms.

You talk and laugh
You love and care
You are my heart that goes walking outside my body.

We love you Purvi

Happy birthday my darling.

With love

your mom

  1. Having a daughter is like having your heart walking outside your body. Daughters are so precious especially to Dad's. They are so tender, loving and caring that you really feel bad for someone who does not have a daughter. When I was small I used to wonder why my sister was my Dad's favourite. Now as a dad I know what having a daughter means. Not that I love my son any less, but daughters are so much more caring. Love ya with all my life Purvi....

  3. How sweet!
    Happy Birthday Purvi and congratulations to you!
    I love the way that you named her after something related to her and her birth. Over here, rarely do we know the real meaning behind the names we give the children. Most of the times it's only because they sound good, or someone in the family was called that, or it reminds us of someone we like, etc. But no real meaning...

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!)
