20 random questions--just for fun.

It's been ages and ages since I did a 'just for fun' meme post. So I decided to do one today. Something that did not need heavy thought, something that was fun and something that I would enjoy doing.
So here are Random Twenty Questions from Sunday Stealing.


You are most welcome to do them too and leave your links in the Sunday Stealing post.


1. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I guess it was a long long time ago. Now I only have stress. No butterflies. Butterflies think the garden is a better place, compared to my tummy and have long deserted me.

2. What was your last alcoholic beverage?
Whiskey.

3. Who can you trust?
Undoubtedly this man:


4. Where was your first kiss with your current significant other?
Mumbai Airport :)

5. Favorite Band?
U2, Pink Floyd and some of GNR, some of Metallica,some of REM, Mumford and sons, Steve Hacket.

6. What is something you've learned about yourself recently?
That even when I think I cannot go on, I really can.

7. Do you like anyone?
Ha ha...I love everyone!

8. Do you know anyone who is engaged?
 Engaged in what? ;)
9. What's your favorite number?

This:




10. Who was the last person to make you cry?
I guess it was a film director :)

 Many. Had got selected for several basketball coaching camps at national level and attended all.

12. When was the last time you cried? 
A few days back.

My dad.


14. What is one thing you've learned about life?

15. Are you jealous of anyone? 
I guess I am jealous of people who can take off to any place they want whenever they like, without any responsibility, worry or care. To be honest, I am not jealous of them either---as everything has a price! It all depends on how hard you are willing to work to pay that price.


16. Is anyone jealous of you?
I guess many are!

 My son! (and I say it with pride)

Tomorrow! :) yay! (As I go on a short vacation)

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…
