Tag--six inconsequential things.

Mary of Momathon tagged me.

The Rules:
Link to the person that tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
************************************************************
Well—are any habits really non-important? To others of course they will be non important—but to yourself, every little detail, that goes into making YOU, is important. Right? At least it is for me!

Anyway since I have been tagged, I decided to do it—here are 6 things about me—Important or not!

1. Deep Hatred is an alien emotion for me. I can’t ever remain angry with anyone for long. No matter what they have done. I have had some truly God-awful experiences—things which people did or said to me. I remember the incidents—but the people I have forgiven. It is weird because I have tried to make myself hate them —but I don’t. I forgive so easily. I don’t know why I’m like this—but have accepted that this is how I am.
2. I respond to every single mail I get. (Except the forwards—if they are exceptionally good, I respond to them too)
3. I care truly, deeply and passionately for animals. I abhor cruelty and cringe when I see the extent to which some people can go.
4. Intellectual arrogance and considering yourself smarter than others is one thing I can’t stand. I truly believe that we are all gifted in different ways. Some of us are great at writing—some at Math—some at Art—some at being a wonderful human being. I don’t think it makes one any less than the other.
5. I can laugh and laugh even in the most serious of situations. I find humour in almost anything.
6. Fitness is almost an obsession for me. I work out regularly, eat healthy and drink lots of water. I actually enjoy doing my crunches and my weights.
The ones I’m tagging are:
Devil Mood from 'Love is stronger than pride':(I know you must have done similar tags before.But I so love reading what you write!)
Scotty from frog Prince: Your insights are deep.
Prats Retrospections: Would love to know you a bit better
Tys: Waiting to read !Do it NOW!!
Misti from hope : Want to know more about you

Shru from high spot: Reveal!

Hershey from cave of Wonders: Want to know what you have to say, my friend!

(I know that makes it seven--but anothe little quirk I have is that I hate rules!)

  4. This actually sounds very interesting...though most of your quirks seem familiar....
    Feels like i've been ghosted :)
    Except for the 6th point...just don't know how you do it...

    But you translate that love for people very well and it shows in your work ...

  6. It's such a great thing you can't ever remain angry with anyone for long. That's definitely a good attitude. Keep it up ,sexy mom! ;0)

  7. well, in my books, you failed miserably!!!

    none of the 6 (and even the 7th one you slipped in) are inconsequential or non-important! did you notice?

    all of them were either very relevant, useful or meaningful.

    guess you don't find anything irrelevant or quirky in life? ;-)

  9. All 6 I relate to. Esp the 1st one. Forgiveness and forgetting comes eacy to me. These days am reconsidering forgetting..

  10. hehehe will do :)
    But I must say your list doesn't sound like a list of quirks, even though I prefer it. Isn't it better than "I always put on the right sock before the left?" ;)

    Shru: of course!You got me there spot on! Heh heh!

  12. Thinking aloud:You know me so well! You are good at figuring me out!:-)

    Rads:How to forget? The more I try, the more indelible it becomes!

    DM: true--not quirks--but maybe habits or things--the tag does say 'qurks, habits or things'And hey--I am waiting to read your next post!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, for better or for worse, my quirky bits are ready for your perusal...

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






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





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





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



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

  Love a Little Stronger.


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 …

May drawing challenge! A story of two portraits.

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
