Three pictures from my garden (Blog marathon post 27)


I really like these two fellows who seem to have made themselves at home in my flower trough :-)




I love the Tiger lilies which have just bloomed. I grew them from a bulb. I had planted them sometime in February.




Dinathus which has just bloomed too. I have  another one which is dark pink in colour, almost Magenta but I haven't got around to clicking a photo yet.

Hope you had a nice weekend and may these flowers kick start a refreshing week ahead!

    @ all: Just asking--Does anyone other than Ajay even listen to the 'current mood videos'? ! (i know ajay does as we talk about it) Most songs I put as current mood videos are songs I really like.

  15. I do read the current mood video...But most of the times, I don't know the song :( When I do, I make it a point to listen to it as well :) Guess, it should be the opposite - should listen to the ones I don't know.

  16. pretty, pretty...just like the gardener (hopefully, almost certain that's you) :)

    you know, the dinathus? we would call it the sharpener flower, when quite small :D , probably because its petals looked like the pencil shavings! (*rolls eyes)

  17. Preeti : Nope I don't listen to them :(

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 :)

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…
