I am like this Vonly :) 100% genuine

Yesterday was one of those 'near-perfect' days for me. I had a really great time, spending time with the family, going out, relaxing--after very long. (It has been so hectic)

I had asked my son to click a picture of me. I had worn my favourite shirt (yes, black--no surprises there), favourite pair of jeans and favourite shoes ( which to my surprise, is still not available India.).


Feeling quite pleased with the picture, I posted it on my FB author page, last night and went to bed. I always put the date on which my pictures are clicked because so many people presume that I have posted an old picture (why in the world should I do that?!) and ask me when the picture was clicked.

This morning when I woke up, I was surprised by the huge flood of comments that this pic (which I thought was such an innocuous one!) has generated. Most of them have been so complimentary  and have gushed so much that I think it will take a year for the blush on my cheeks to vanish.

But a few comments I got took the cake-- some people have commented saying 'Be careful folks--this is a fake picture. Don't fall for it' and 'Post your real photo--not somebody else's' .

LOL.What is fake?! My shoes? :) (Don't women in India wear shoes?!!) . And for the record, my shoes are authentic, I spent a small fortune on them, I guard them jealously and I absolutely love them.
Is my smile fake? :) (It is hundred percent genuine--it is my special moronic smile which creeps up automatically when it spots a camera pointing at me--it has been honed so well that it has now graduated to the elevated status of a reflex action.)

Are my jeans fake? No--I spent a small fortune on those too (Levis demi curve, skinny, crystal blue if you must know)

What about the shirt then?  That too  is 100% genuine--Van Heusen has a great range for women.

The car, the trees in the background and even my bag isn't fake.  Why, even the ground that I am standing on, is not fake .

It is all real, I can assure you that. Maybe I should wear a label on my forehead saying '100% authentic' :D

I guess I should just be thankful that though I cannot convince the non-believers, I can tell them through this post , that my books are real :) (Go on and click on the link if you don't believe me)

I am still so amused at the cynicism of some people! :)
I am real guys--believe me ;-)
I am like this vonly :D  (no, not a typo)

    1. Post was completely in a lighter vein Vishal!It is filed under 'funny/amusing'. It's a tongue in cheek kind of post. Of course, secretly I am as pleased as a punch that they actually think it's a fake. I was just showing off :)

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…
