The prompt this time at writers islandis 'The stranger'. This is my piece. ************************************************************
Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.
All of us are guilty, at least to some extent of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.
You don't need an Instagram account to view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…
I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations. I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.
'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke at our college and they did not charge any fees .'. This is the general tone of emails.Many
