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 :)


I also had several media interactions. Doordarshan interviewed me for their Iconic Aaj Savere programme. It was great to be on the sets. Here is a picture from the shoot.



Then I had a reading at All India Radio, and it was fabulous to be at their office. It was old world all the way. I posted about it on my facebook page. I am embedding the post below:
Do  click on the pic to read what I said about the whole experience.


Finally, after all these I travelled to Jammu! (With that visit, I can proudly say that I have been to every single state in India)

This was on the invitation of Sahitya Akademi for a writers festival. I read out from A Hundred Little Flames. Here are a  couple of pictures from Jammu.


 Here I am, reading from A Hundred Little Flames




So, as you can see, my life has been a whirlwind for the past many days.

I am now so enjoying being at home, and relaxing.

On 9th (Saturday) and 10th(Sunday) of this month, I will be at variuos bookstores in Bangalore city.

You can meet me, and get your copies signed. We will also click many selfies :)


Details are in the post above.

If you are in Bangalore, and want to meet me, come! I will be happy to see you.

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…
