Today's post is a photo post--these are snapshots from my home.

View from my rooftop  






Gift from a good friend. Roses and a bottle of wine                                        







A part of my garden. Can you see Mr.Frog? Sadly my dog murdered him :)




No matter how insane the day, this is my moment of peace. I light this lamp daily.      




Hot summers call for cold watermelon juice.On my balcony.  




Love this Buddha. A gift from another good friend.In the background is the book I am currently reading.




Yes, I grew this and it bloomed. Oh the joy!









I am not very fond of Jasmine but Satish is. I grew this for him.   




If you are sharing pictures from your home, I'd love to look :) (I love looking at home pictures)

And if you haven't read Satish's guest post, please read! I love how he wrote it.

See you tomorrow, folks!

  2. There is a quote regarding home which I remember since a long time don't really know the author -
    "Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to"

    Loved your Watermelon juice pic... Cheers to the home

    I have a Mr. Frog too. It's a soft toy and the scapegoat for a lot of biology related humour :P :D

  6. I can imagine the serenity you must feel when you light the lamp ! I felt peaceful just by looking at the snap ! I absolutely adore jasmine! Infact in my mind summer is interlinked with the smell of jasmine flowers :)

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…
