Listen carefully to the lyrics!




"So do you listen to music?" I asked him.
"Of course I do. Who doesn't? Did you think I was some kind of a Tribal?"
That made me smile. I was meeting him for the first time and we both found the conversation smooth, with no awkward pauses, as we walked around the beautifully landscaped gardens. Did I mention it was night? Somehow nights always make even the mundane seem enchanting.

Ten days later he dedicated a song to me.
It was Air Supply's "Every Woman in the world"

It's been 20 years now and the song still holds the same magic.
It still puts a smile on my face when I hear it.

And sometimes, he looks into my eyes and sings it for me :)

  2. You forgot one more thing I said. 😊

    To the world you may just be a someone. But to someone you mean the world.

    You still are my world after so many years and will continue to be so.

  3. Brilliant words madam. It is rightly said that to write something about love and relationships you have to experience one. You are blessed to have a life partner who supports you in whatever you do. May your partnership blossom. Hope to meet you whenever you come to Delhi next time for any event. Always looking forward to get your autograph on one of your books.

  6. "I was dancing in the dark with strangers
    No love around me
    When suddenly you found me"

    I get where the kick is coming from . haha very true music and dedication of songs ( not through tv or radio) but by our loved ones to personal selves does holds a true place.

    I wish and send loads of love to you both. A love that doesnot shine less when you shine bright in the limelight. Stay blessed Preeti

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…
