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

  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!! :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)
