So much to say.


Satish is on his way back from work. We speak to each other most of the days. Either he calls or I do. (yeah, we still call each other three or four times a day. We're mushy like that :) )

Actual conversations that happen:

Me: 'Baby-- you know what ....Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, and then you know what happened, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah'

Satish; 'Okay '

Me: And you know what baby,  blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Isn't that great ?'

Satish: Hmmm

Me: ' And I forgot to tell you, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah and blah blah. So what do you feel?'

Satish: I don't know.

Me: (a bit indignant by now) : What do you mean you don't know? You must be feeling something right?

Satish: I really don't know.


I bet half the married people can relate to the above. Leave me a comment if  conversation between you and your spouse goes like this :) I really want to know if this is a universal phenomenon or something unique to us.

And let me run now---he just walked in and I have so much to tell him :)

  8. Hahahaha, this is absolutely true. To a big extent, men don't vocalise their thoughts as much as women, and definitely don't let minor or non-essential things affect them. So, yes, been there living this!

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…
