A Hundred Little Flames --2


Ayan has a domineering father. Ayan is a guy who has made some mistakes in the past, like failing to clear his class twelve exams, the first time.
He has worked hard since then, but his father cannot see that. His father controls him, and helps him all the time. Ayan hates it. But he is too terrified of his father to speak up.

Meet Ayan in A Hundred Little Flames

And if you know any parent(s) like Ayan's father, tell me about them in comments.

  1. Well my father is not at all like Ayan's . He says that my happiness matters more than anything else. He is the one who encourages me the most to read more and more books. According to him reading is the best thing you can do. He does scold me at times though. But I love him more than anyone else.๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    Hundred little blog posts is such a good idea. Hope you had a good day ma'am.
    Take care.

    2. Thanks to you Preeti for acknowledging my comment. I was afraid to write even that since parents are Gods in our culture, and expressing our unhappiness being with them is often taken as a sign of arrogant young generation. And I know you absolutely hate any kind of negativity ( :-) I follow you everywhere *ha ha*)

      Not everyone, including parents understand the other side of the story. I strongly believe that your book will shed some light on this. In 'Life is What You Make It' you dealt with it in a very subliminal level, fell in love with you from there on. All the best!

  7. I was thinking that as parents we also tend to control our children the way we want them to grow or do things. Definitely we should learn to let them grow.. Let them fly.. [Easy said than done] :)
    Have preordered he book.. waiting to get it :)

  8. My father was never like that of Ayan's. When my father was alive, he used to be extremely nice to me. I don't think he would have raised his voice at me either. Instead, he would tell me in a soft and calm manner - just like his nature. Mom was always the one who used to control each and everything I did. Those days, I did not like it at all, but after growing up, I realized she was just disciplining me to be a good daughter and also to be a better person in the world. Surely, if I was let loose and had the freedom to do what I wanted, I would not have ended up like I am today. So I thankful to my parents for the wonderful role they played/playing.

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.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:


You also get access to an EXCLUSIVE facebook writing club, which is a CLOSED group.

No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when gi…

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:

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…
