Your chance to get published! 'Write India'

Hi there,
How have you been? My last post was from Goa, where I had been struggling for Internet connectivity and I had said I would share some pictures.

After I came back, I go caught up like crazy in finishing up next book. (Yes!! It is done! I am euphoric!) By then, it seemed too late to share the vacation pictures. If you want to see one of them, I have posted it on my FB page. (click to view)


Remember sometime back I had told you all about an ad that I had shot for?

Well this is what it is about!!

 Write India" is your chance to make your dreams of getting published come true. Eleven authors (Amish, Chetan Bhagat, , Preeti Shenoy, Ashwin Sanghi, Ravi SubramanianTuhin Sinha, Ravinder Singh, Durjoy Datta, Madhuri Banerjee, Jaishree Misra and Anita Nair) are working alongside the Times of India to find eleven budding writers. The eleven short stories selected will result in a book published by the Times of India. To participate log on to http://www.toi.in/writeindia

And do watch this ad :)

All the best!

  3. Mam its so nice of you and TOI to give aspiring ones a gateway but isn't writing a self art. I mean how can an author write on your thoughts and visions. Just shared it, i know even you would've liked to write on the characters you've given birth too :). I am very happy by your wishes only to make my dreams come true :):)

    1. Kindly note that I am only a participant in this just like you. It is TOI who has come up with all terms and conditions. And you are more than free and welcome to give birth to your own characters and approach publishers with your work!
      This is a contest and it is TOI who will make the selection of qualifying entries and send some to me ANONYMOUSLY, from which I will pick. So I will directly not have a say in the matter nor will I be able to influence outcome.
      Good luck!! :)

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…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

Hey there!

All of you, the regular readers of this blog know that I do a blog marathon each year. It's a term coined by yours truly. It means that I will be posting a new entry, every single day, the whole of this month! So don't forget to hit 'subscribe' on top of this blog (see the button there? Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.


One thing that I follow on this blog, is that it is a happy place. WE do not have control over wh…

My best friend's wedding :)

The above is where I am staying right now! It is an amazing place :)
I am here for the wedding of one of my closest friends.

You can see videos of me dancing on my Instagram account in my story (which will be available for 24 hours).

Here are some more snap shots from today.

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?

As you can see from the above pics, as well as from my Insta feed, I am having a really really good time.

More updates tomorrow.
(I left home at 3.00 am today, as I had an early morning flight)

Stay tuned!
