  3. what was it like before internet? well...it was world full of arrogant postmen and encyclopedias. The postmen knew that they are the only way you can maintain a long distance relationship... encyclopedias were the only way to get all the info you need without going through a lot of trouble.

    Then...it arrived. The internet. It humbled the postmen(though not all) and encyclopedias became equivalent to mere trophies to be displayed to guests.

    P.S., no, not your name, the other P.S., I am not actually back to blogging yet,just coming to update that art blog...
    its a new blog, like a small baby, needs to be fed or it shall die.
    Off I go... 4 days...

  8. Without the internet I would not have made contact with many of the people that are now part of my routine. I like to drop by and 'see' people like you! In this way it enriches our lives even if it makes other parts more frustrating at times!

  10. The inter web thingy is now so much a part of our lives ..we take it for granted I think. I am a richer person in so many ways because of it..being able to cite you as one of my best friends though we have never met is the best thing..and it gets better..as there are others out there who I can not imagine living without their words and minds being active in my life and time!I am daily so greatful to be able to do this!

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!)
