You are never safe (post 8)


Nothing is predictable in life. Anything can strike us at any moment. You can take all the insurance in the world, but that will not prevent a tragedy from hitting you.
Often it isn't even our fault. Life isn't fair.

This is exactly what happens to Ayan, a 26 year old guy, working in a multinational in Pune.

Find out his story and read about it in A Hundred Little Flames.

Do you think we can do anything to protect ourselves? In what ways can we cushion these things that we have no control of?  Tell me in comments. I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Very true ma'am. Nothing is predictable in life. But what we can do is live in the moment and enjoy life to the fullest. No one knows what tomorrow has in store for us. I really like this quote from Its all in the planets- Life your life in such a way that if you were to die tomorrow,you have no regrets.
    Can't wait to know Ayan's story.
    Bye ma'am. Take care.

  2. Life is definitely unpredictable. We cannot do anything in this world to protect us from evil, diseases, accidents, etc. We just have to live life one day at a time. Nothing is predictable. One minute someone is alive and the next minute, you hear that they have passed on. All we can do is live life one day at a time, have no regrets, enjoy life to the fullest and most importantly, to be happy no matter what obstacles we are facing in our life.

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…

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.
