  2. Guests, please be considerate, not demanding and don't get offended for every petty thing.

    Hosts be tolerant. There is some weight age to athidi devo bava :). Treat your guests with respect. They aren't all born to exploit your hospitality.

    Your post has a come at such a right time..
    I've my main semester exams from the 20th of march and we are expecting guests from 15th and they'll be staying over for 10-20 days..
    I have no idea how am gonna cope up this situation because i tend to get frustrated with anyone who comes to talk to me during exams because of all the stress and now with the guests at my place I'll have to behave all cool and politely with them😞

  6. If I like the guest and feel the connect, then I go out of my way to entertain them. If I am not comfortable, then, I try to be nice, even though the difference is obvious!

The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
