It happened one night.

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.

  20. My comment there seems to have bounced off and now when I try, the page just refreshes :(
    Anyway, that was an opportunity well used by ur husband to leave a nagging boss speechless, and also left with nothing to complain about hehehe :)

  21. Lol! A great post there!! Loved how your husband rebutted his ex boss in the nuts with simple words. Admirable.

    Am happy that the kick came out to a wonderful memory you guys laugh about.:D

    I got kicked by my cousin while asleep in her house before. I let her off the first time. She went for a row of three times. The final round i just woke up and slap her. And went back to sleep. The lady went on snoring.. lol! She did not even know she kicked and i slapped. But it sure did stopped her feet at its tracks.

    And happy u got a man full of godiva choco sweetness..lol!

    Keep it rolling..;)

The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.

For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
