A day in my life (Blog marathon post 9)



Today was a whirlwind of a day for me. I started my day at 5.30 am.

I went for my   run/walk.(I run/walk every  single day).

Later in the morning, I met two good friends of mine, both authors, at a pub in Bangalore. We had a great time.
Right next to the pub was a wonderful little store that I discovered, which had the prettiest, cutest, the most well designed pieces for your home. I felt I was in wonderland as I explored the store.
I  couldn't resist buying  three really pretty containers, for growing Mint, Basil and Parsley. I shall share pictures, after they grow a little bit. I also bought a miniature watering can. A tiny one which is smaller than your palm!

As soon as I got back home,  my dog was waiting and I walked her. We went for a long walk. Each time she explores the same path we have walked on, thousands of times by now, we discover something new.

The one thing that I do, when I walk is listen to podcasts.  I highly recommend listening to podcasts, over listening to music , when you walk. There are several interesting podcasts out there. Some are fascinating and really make you think.

Then I took care of several work related emails. I wrote a piece for a newspaper. I gave a couple of interviews. I continued the discussion which I was having with my author friend, this time over texts.
I discovered that someone  was sly-tweeting about me, and I promptly blocked that person.
There's really no room in life for negativity or negative people.They aren't worth thinking about and you should cut them out from your life, as much as you can.

I lit the lamp at my altar, I offered my prayers. It is a ritual I follow, daily. I shall share pictures of my altar sometime. Then I went out to my garden, and tended to my vegetable garden.

After all of this, I cooked a simple dinner.

And once again,  my furry baby and I set out on another long walk. (She needs a LOT of exercise).

In between I snapchatted and instgrammed a LOT with my daughter and son, who are both abroad for college :)

Now I am going to read my book and call it a day.

How was your day? What did you do?
Tell me in my comment box. If you share I am listening.
 (Isn't it nice to peek into other's lives? I love doing that :-) )

  2. I admire the life you have created for yourself. What an active day you had. I also enjoy a peek into the day of certain people.
    Highlight of my day was how it ended with a long swim in the temperature controlled pool at the local sports club and watching the gorgeous moon thereafter. The rest of the day was office work and home chores, and yes, instagramming and connecting with family and friends :) I also fed my plants with some plant food.. its really hot here in Dubai and I do my best to keep the little green corner happy.

  3. I really enjoyed reading about your day. With your kids not there, I guess you and Satish are empty nesters. I used to follow your son's blog as well and miss his posts. My day was okay. Went to work and came home in the night. Was feeling a little low as I was down with a cold. After getting a good night's sleep, I am feeling a little better.:-) Take care.

    I love the way you are humble and how inspite being a public figure you don't feel vulnerable to share this post. :-)

  10. I agree with what everyone has written above about you. Despite being a public figure you share details of your life so easily thats that's a great thing in itself. That shows your true connection with your viewers or readers which is not just by the books you write but by the minute details of your life that you share with us. This is the real way of connecting with people and making them part of your life and being part of their life. I also like your positivity and its an inspiration for me as I m lil pessimistic. I am lawyer and a mother of a 2 year old child. Hence my life is in a diff phase wherein i try to grab some free time for myself at night after he sleeps. I have read all your books and needless to mention that they amazing. Thats precisely the reason why I m looking forward for your next book. Inspired by you I checked the writing platform juggernaut and have published two short poetry books in last few weeks. One thing which i lag and which i want to do is regular exercise. Somehow i m unable to fit it in my schedule for the day but shall do so very shortly. I always look for reading your posts on your fb th or blog as and when i get time. I can connect with your life and it's looks simple and normal like common people lives and hence seems very connecting.. .thanks a lot for writing each day and it's something we as readers always look forward to.

  11. Waking up early is a good step to achieve so many things in a day. What a productive day. Mine was good too, woke up to the windy weather, edited an interview before sending, went out for coffee and read a magazine. Coffee and reading makes for great relaxation. Shot a mail, watch NDTV and new reading blogs. I shall work on an impending book review and read at night before going to celebrate our Independence day tomorrow.

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
