You are in love when....

Late at night
When your thoughts drift
To that one person
Who brings a smile on your face
Each time you think of them,
And when you know in your heart
That you will do anything
Anything really
To have them in your life
Then you know
That it isn't what feels like love
It is love
The real deal
And if you smiled when you read this
Then you know
You're in love
There is no escape.

Now stop grinning before anyone notices
And thinks you are mad.
Love often is
Madness

  6. A nice write-up Ma'am! Being in love is that state where for me my thoughts literally take the road of creativeness. Everything in the world seems beautiful and my elated self is simply portrayed in writings or music. Love is that strong feeling which one cannot escape without expressing it to the world and by saying, "I am in Love!"
    Looking forward to read verses on such themes Ma'am! World lives on 'love' & I wish you to have a lovely time ahead! :)

  12. love is really a total madness ma'am you never know how important that person is for you unless you lose that person
    I've been missing her since 15 months. I wish I hadn't let her go.
    Last month I heard from a friend that she got engaged.
    Since then I've been missing her like hell. I wish I could go back in past and never let her go off me and tell her how much I love her....

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 :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)

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…
