Write India Grand finale---and catch me live on Thursdays!

Just got back from Mumbai, from a really grand event which was the finale of the Write India, which had been going on for the past  11 months. In case you don't know what it is, you can watch the intorductory video:




The newspapers today carried the pics as well as the write-up. So I won't tell you about that. You can read about it here.

 


However, what I really want to tell you about is the incredible sense of camaraderie, kinship and the bond that all of us, authors felt. There is absolutely no rivalry between us. (contrary to what people may think). We are all such good friends. There was so much laughter and good spirit.

It was a very special evening. I am sharing with you a few pictures that speak for themselves.

Just before leaving for the event
Madhuri Banerjee and me.
Durjoy Datta, Amish and me sharing something very funny.

And now--something important that I want to share with you. The response I got for my last LIVE video was phenomenal.  Many of you wanted me to do this more often. And so, my team has come up this concept of Thoughtful Thursdays.

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
