What is happiness? A picture post. Blog marathon post 4

 Happiness is a hug from someone who loves you unconditionally!!

                          Happiness is a bunch of white lilies blooming in your garden.

Happiness is having the time and patience to notice the tiny little details like the spider creeping up, and then capture a picture of it.  (Photo by my son Atul)

Happiness is the gift of an amazing morning sky on your walk.

Happiness is an animal trusting you enough to come up to you and go to sleep in your lap, while you read a book.

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.

That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:

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…
