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.

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…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
