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....

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…
