Why I cannot stay away from you for long

How can I be away from you for long? :)
Especially when you're so responsive and read everything I write! Where else will I get such unconditional and loyal love, but  from you :)

One of the reasons which kept me away from this space was a new love affair that I started recently. It's Tumblr .This blog (Just a mother of two)  is a happy space and  also this is a space where I do not post short stories or videos. Also many a time there are articles I come across, which strike me as deep and powerful and I want to share them, showcase them and go through them again and again.I find Tumblr ideal for that. In my Tumblr account, I haven't enabled comments as I don't want to interact there. Initially, I wasn't even going to share my Tumblr with anyone, but people discovered it anyway. :) Some affairs cannot be hidden for long, I guess. I now quite like how my Tumblr is shaping up (I have posted some dark short stories written by me, there)  and in case you want to have a look, you'll find a link in the navigation boxes at the top of this blog.

The other major major news (those who interact with me on FB will already know this) is that 'Life is what you make it' has been declared a National Bestseller! :) It has gone into THIRD impression in record time! It is still topping the Charts on Flipkart   as well as on Hindustan Times Top ten fiction.



To say that I am elated,overjoyed and ecstatic would be putting it mildly. Congratulations have been pouring in from all quarters. I thank each one of you, who reads this blog and I thank each one of you who has bought the book, written a review, blogged about it and spread the word.
It is only because of you that it is possible.

Another fantastic thing which happened is that this blog has now crossed One thousand subscribers. (wow! so much love! I love you too!)

Now you know why I cannot stay away from you for long ;-) Despite my new love affair with Tumblr! (and I don't know how long that will last) :-)

Old friends are always the best and I do not let go of old friendships so easily.

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…
