An alphabet Meme

This is a meme from Sunday stealing  which I found interesting enough to do. Most memes are the same stuff that one seems to have done a countless time, if one has been blogging for a few years (which I have. I started this blog in October 2006!)
This one is an alphabet meme  which is the first alphabet meme of 2011.  I have tried to include lots of pictures to make it interesting :)

Here goes:


A is for Age:  



B is for Beer of choice: 

Vodka :P I don't drink Beer :)

C is for Career:
Writer and Artist

D is for favourite Drink:
 
Same as B :)

E is for Essential item you use everyday:  

My  custom made  powered sunglasses. (I have sensitive eyes--they eater easily :-))



F is for Favourite song at the moment:  



G is for favourite Game:








H is for Home town:



I don't really have a 'hometown'. (have never lived in a place for more than three consecutive years) I'm a true Indian.



I is for Instruments you play:


Learnt to play a few tunes on the Keyboard but cannot claim to 'play an instrument'

J is for favourite Juice:

R is for biggest Regret:

For saying some stupid things which seemed terribly important at that time. It truly does not matter now. Wish I could take them back, but they have been said. The spoken word once uttered never can be taken back. It was a big lesson I learnt, in controlling my acerbic tongue.

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!)

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





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

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.

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 …

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
