A lovely session at Start-o-nomics 2015, Delhi.

So I have just got back from Delhi, where I had been invited as one of the main speakers, at Start-o-nomics 2015, which was a start-up and an internship fair organised by the  students of the Economics Department of Dyal Singh college, Delhi.

The experience was fabulous--easily one of the best I have had, where I have been invited to speak. (and I have spoken at IITs, IIMs and corporates like KPMG, Infosys, Accenture and many more). Right from the mail where they invited me,  to the last minute detailed itinerary they planned for me, to the smart young lad who came to pick me up at the airport, to the warm welcome I got---all of it , I would say it was impeccable. They were so well organized in terms of planning, arrangements at the venue and the publicity both before and after the events.

I got a standing ovation, as soon as I went up on stage! I spoke about my journey from an unknown blogger to one of India's highest selling authors, and also talked about 4 things that helped me and 2 essential thins that you have to do, if you want to be a writer.

The reception that my talk  got was exceptional. I share with you some pictures, which would give you a good idea about it all.
The packed auditorium. There were students from other colleges in Delhi as well.


Giving the talk.



The head of the Economics department giving me a token of appreciation.



Signing books.

You can see all the happy smiles here :)




The team that made it all happen.


With volunteers and other students.





And this is clicked, just before I left the college,  finally saying a bye, heading back home.


As a writer, it is a LOT of effort to travel to Delhi from Bangalore, just for a talk. It is also a loss of at least 3working days.

But great interactions like this one, makes it all worthwhile and makes it so memorable--both for me as well as for the students who were there that day.
Thank you guys for the warmth, love and the superb hospitality and unforgettable moments. I really appreciate it.
Will definitely stop by your college, next time I am in Delhi.

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
