World Book fair Delhi and a Bloggers meet (blog marathon post 14)

So was at the World Book fair Delhi, where I had a fabulous session. Here I am just before going inside the hall for my session
And this is just one side of the audience. I couldn't capture the other side as it wouldn't fit into the frame. We had a fabulous turnout and a great time!


After that I headed out to the Westland stall, and also the Amazon stall. We clicked some interesting pics at the Amazon stall.

I also signed the author's wall.

Amazon tweeted about it:

Then I headed for a bloggers meet at CCD.
It was just awesome to connect with bloggers--all of us like minded people who completely understood each other, when we spoke of our online experiences. They didn't believe that i had two children till i showed them the pictures :)

It was great connecting with them. I made some new friends today and as is evident from the  pictures, we had an amazing time.




I went shopping to after that and bought some stuff  to gift my loved ones, which I am very happy about.

I leave for Chandigarh tomorrow. Those who want to meet me can come to the Capital Book Depot on 16th at 12.00 pm for book signing and an informal chat.

Good night folks.
I shall blog again from Chandigarh tomorrow! I am glad that even though my schedule is extremely hectic I am managing to keep up my blog marathon.
Till tomorrow--stay happy and smile! :)

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…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
