A perfect Valentines day!




The book launch went off wonderfully, last evening. There was conversation, cupcakes, tea and a lot of fun. It was indeed a special Valentines day.

 A big thank you to all of you who made the effort to attend it. I was really delighted to see you.

This is what Pawan Raju, one of the readers who attended the launch said "It was definitely different kind of book launch :) :) :) :) perfect valentine's day evening :) Kudos! I  enjoyed every minute of it"

 Milan Vohra was in conversation with me and I have included a small part of the conversation where she asks me about sex scenes in the book. :) This is an out and out adults book. It is unlike my previous two books.

 For a LOT more pictures, which say it all go here.

 My next launch is in Pune on 18th (Saturday), 6.30 PM at Crossword, (ICC Trade Tower) Senapati Bapat Marg. 

. I will be in conversation with Sonja Chandrachud. 

 Join me if you are in Pune!

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…
