Some more postcards from Lucknow (blog marathon post 27)

Thought I would do a photo post today, as I have some really lovely pictures that I cliked inside the Imamwada during my Lucknow trip.

The steps that lead to the Imamwada

The wonderful Bada Imamwada


 Love the Awadhi architecture.


The beautiful minarets.



The garden inside the compoud of the chotta imamwada.

The mosque against the sunset.

Isn't Lucknow beautiful?

(For those who don't read my blog regularly---I got a chance to visit Lucknow when I was invited for the Lucknow litfest  Click HERE for some snaps that tell you what it was all about)

Do visit Lucknow if you get a chance. There is so much history , beauty and old architecture in the city. And not to mention shopping for chikan work.

I would definitely be going back.
G'nite folks. Till tomorrow.

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.

The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
