10 ways to tell if your Valentine is The One You Cannot Have

pon and zi photo: I LOVE YOU GOD DAMN IT!! CANT YOU HEAR MEEEE!!!!! 5877295.jpg





1. They have logged into whatsapp thrice since you sent that ‘hello’, it’s been eight hours now and you still haven’t got a reply. (Real valentines reply back within 15 minutes unless they are on a flight to U.S and their phone is switched off. And even if they are, they reply soon on landing!)

2. You send a message wishing ‘Happy Valentines’ and you get a reply asking ‘Who is this?’ (Run!)

3.You have posted photos of you getting an award, photos of you on that vacation or photos of something that you are proud of. The whole world and their aunt and dog have liked it. But they haven’t even seen it. (No, they aren’t that busy. They are not interested in your life. Accept it!)

4.You have sent them an email and there is no response for more than 24 hours. (Yes, we know. They have been sooooo busy with ‘too many things’)

5.They gift you something that would be suitable to give as a gift to a boss or a colleague. 

6.Worse, they don’t  gift you anything at all.

7.You log in to Facebook and discover their photos on a night out with their friends when you were supposed to have met for a date.

8.You call up at midnight to wish them on their special occasion and their phone continuously engaged. Next morning they tell you that they were so tired that they slept off.

9.You haven’t spoken on the phone for more than five days and when you login to Facebook, you suddenly see a change in their relationship status.

10. If all  of the above or even one of the above has happened to you, don’t worry. There is always this ! Get it for yourself—it is cheaper than diamonds, wine, teddy bears or any of those other crappy valentine stuff.
Besides, it will stay with you, never leave you, will comfort you and be your best friend. Forever! I promise :)

    3. True Vaishali..i agree with u...especially in long distance relationship it happens...sometime they get stuck when wanted to call u or the other time u r not in a position to answer the call. Understanding and accepting is the good option if you really consider him/her as ur valentine

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
