Love is in the air. (blog marathon post 15)

Greetings from Chandigarh!

Those of you who want to meet me at Chandigarh, can come to the Capital Book Depot , sector 17, Chandigarh at 12.00 pm on 16th February. I will be there for about an hour.

I have another event in the evening which is an invite only event, and in case you are keen to attend, do write to me and request an invite.

For today's  blog marathon post I am doing a Sunday Stealing Love-is-in-the air-Meme

There is what they have asked:


Love, to you. 

Define love in your own words :  Love is being there for each other, come what may. Love is life itself.


What do you want in a relationship? 
A sense of being heard, a large degree of trust and freedom and also belief in me, knowing that I would make wise choices.

What do you contribute to a relationship ?
An element of fun, full and complete support, unconditional love and acceptance of flaws, for I am not perfect either.

Currently..... 
Do you have a Valentine?  Yes and I miss him very much as he and I are apart right now. Can't wait to be together.

Describe the perfect V-day date in your opinion: Long conversations, a well cooked meal, some quiet time and expressing and re-affirming what we mean to each other.

Dream Date? Right now,my dream date would be my bed as I am exhausted and need to sleep.


What is your crush's name?  Saurabh. For further details and a picture of him, click here.

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…
