Postcards from Kerala and a medley of thoughts (blog marathon post

So, I left home at 7.30 am this morning and am in Kerala right now. I will be conducting a National creative writing workshop at my alma mater, St.Teresa's college Kochi. The other two writers who have graduated from here are Shinie Antony and Jaishree Mishra, both of who are my seniors from college. I feel proud of this Institution.

Tomorrow evening I will be at DC books, convent Junction at 5.30 pm. Come! or if you have riends in Kochi who would like to attend this event, do pass on the inforomation. On 15th I am giving a talk at Sacred Heart college, Kochi and then i get back to Bangalore. In between, I have press interviews too.

Today, as soon as I got off the plane, I was barraged by messages, which demanded that I turn around an assignment in less than 24 hours. It would require me to read at least 25000 words. No prior intimation was given of this deadline. It was foisted upon me and I was asked if I wasn't aware of it. There was no mail sent earlier informing me of the deadline, nor was I consulted. I agreed to do it out of commitment to what I do. When I do something, I put my heart and soul into it. I am sincere, committed and 100 percent genuine. Anyone who has interacted with me or has been reading me or who has met me would vouch for that. One thing I cannot stand is pretence. The other thing I cannot stand is rudeness. Or a sense of I-am-greater-than-you. I deal with it by mentally distancing myself from it and surrounding myself with positivity.  That's usually the best way.

I went on an amazing 6 island tour today. Kerala is indeed God's own country. If you have read my books, you would know that many of them are set in kerala. I share with you two pictures I clicked today-- two postcards from kerala. With love.
