Life is what you make it- a few facts

 Thanks to a reader Nikhil Muralidharan who clicked this photo and shared this with me on my FB page.
I loved this pic.

'Life is what you make it' was declared a National best-seller in the second month of its release. It has now gone into seventh impression. It has been consistently topping the Hindustan Times top ten best selling fiction list. It has appeared on India today top twenty best-selling list too. It is number one on Flipkart best sellers. It is  on the Landmark best seller list too.

It's listed on Amazon as well now :-) (and yeah even if you live in UK  you can get it on Amazon.co.uk

If you have read it, a big thanks to you for making this happen.

If you haven't read it, what are you doing reading my blog?! What is your excuse?! Go buy!! :-)

You can get it in all the leading bookstores in India. But it is really flying off the shelves, so in case they don't have it, you can get it over the phone.
(If you live in India, you can just order it over phone by calling or texting 0-9650-457-457  and pay cash on delivery. You can do the same on flipkart too, just go here. They have a discount of 35% and at Infibeam they have a whopping 50% off.)


Go get it! :)

  21. Hello madam......

    Last week, i read it. I am not so a big fan of English books but now a book named "Life is What you Make it" has made me fan of yours. Only i know how i finished this novel in a single sitting. Every page was making me cry and cry. It was difficult for me to stop it. It touched really... really my heart. But now problem is that 'ANKITA' is just a fictional character... what must we do if we face this character in real. I am considering myself as joseph(sorry, if name is wrong). I have a friend whose mentally condition as same as ankita. I don't want any bad occurrence with my friend just happened with ankita. She is trying to forgot her past but what if something happened with her like ankita. Your book has made me scared too.

    anyways, thanks for this lovely book.................... it will remain always a gem on my book-shelf. Thanks again....

We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
