Wish list Wednesday No.4

A very happy new year to you all!
 Hope you have a wonderful, peaceful and a joyous 2013.

Welcome to Wish list Wednesdays.  In case you  are new and do not know what Wishlist Wednesdays are, it is a writing prompt hosted by me, every Wednesday, in association with Westland Books, the publishers of  my new book 'The Secret Wish list' which has been getting some great reviews.

Each wednesday I shall host a writing prompt and you can answer the questions in your blogs or in my comment box. One person wins a copy of the 'The Secret Wish list' which will be mailed to them by Westland.

I have really enjoyed reading all the entries in the previous prompt.
I have also managed to leave comments on many entries. (I might not have been able to leave on some for technical reasons--but I did try).

This time, the winning entry is :

  14. I Wish Everyone loved the way everyone wants to be loved. I wish everyone loved the kind of life one is living. I wish everyone loved the numerous blessings one is surrounded with which always go unnoticed. I wish everyone loved to see others being loved. I wish everyone loved to spread a smile on a stranger's face. I wish everyone loved to grow up, to feel the essence of letting go, to acknowledge the cure behind moving on. I so wish everyone loved to care for those who don't care. I wish everyone loved to love without expectations. I wish everyone loved to realise the beauty of nature. I wish everyone loved to be happy for the little things. I wish everyone loved to help a friend in need. I wish everyone loved to listen without judging. I wish everyone loved to light up someone's world. I wish everyone loved to sacrifice for others. I wish everyone loved to lighten the burdens of a heavy heart. I wish everyone loved to respect everyone. I wish everyone loved to do something personal between him and the Creator. I wish everyone loved to see how easy it is to embrace the good things. I wish everyone loved to eradicate evil from the world. I wish everyone loved to be secular. I wish everyone loved to love the not so lovely things of the world.. And I wish, I so wish everyone loved to express gratitude without expecting others to return the favours. I just wish everyone loved to see the world in a simple, uncomplicated, natural way! :) :)

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
