Three quotes from a Rule Breaker. Post 10

 Hello there!
How has your Monday been? Mine was exhausting. I almost forgot to blog.
For today's post I thought I would share with you some quotes from my latest book The Rule Breakers.
If you have taken a flight lately, you might have seen it in the bestsellers at the airport stores.
Many people have written to me telling me that they loved  the spunky Vidya.
Hence here are quotes exclusively from Vidya.




Do you agree with the above quotes? Do they make you think?
Let me know your thoughts in comments. I look forward to hearing from you!

More tomorrow!
Till then-- stay serene.

buy The Rule Breakers:


  1. Thanks mam for such beautiful pics With the quotes. Yes in deed I can resonate with each quote that you have posted. Thanks for posting today again. These posts really make us think specially the quote on breaking the mould of social acceptance .I don't know how these get ingrained within us and as we grow we realise how many ofour beliefs are baseless and orthodoxical. They have no logic but we still follow them mindlessly. Don't know from why did we suppress our curiosity and start living a life based on some irrational beliefs. That's called being redundant. I m happy that I have progressed and slowly trying to break the beliefs that no longer serve me.

    1. Thank you so much for the comment and the kid words. Yes, we need to discard beliefs that no longer serve us. That's the only way to grow.

  2. I am waiting eagerly for the book to reach me. I am so glad that this book will be the one I will read to my little one in my last few weeks of pregnancy. She is going to be your fan right since her infant times. :-)

    1. So sweet! good luck with your baby! :)

  3. In real life whenever I see someone who broke the rule of society they must have at least one person behind them as a great support. I mean they alone were unable to break the rules.

    1. Yes, everyone needs a wingman or a wingwoman :)

  4. Recently i saw an ad of Flipkart highlighting Gender Equality.. Its too good :)

    The campaign’s underlying message being that a generation treated equally today will treat each other equally tomorrow. A campaign to break the rules!

    Through this campaign, Flipkart is urging the parents to raise ‘Generation Equal or GenE’ and not try to keep children’s experiences and expectations about life and their personalities separated right from their childhood based on their gender.

    1. I didn't know about it. Thanks for the info! Much needed campaign.

  5. When i read rule if truly inspired me , your all books are so inspiring not only inspiring but also we learn so many life values from it. I must say as a person also you are. Very good

  6. The quotes are so relevant in today's times when we battle so many emotions inside us and the mind becomes a turmoil.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.

2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer

3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg

Forty seven things I learnt.

I turned 47 today. This is a picture clicked today. I received a lot of flowers today.

The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that I have in my life. Today, I am living my dream. There's nothing more I ask from life!
The path hasn't been easy at all. There have definitely been so many downs. When I look back, I think for every victory of mine, there has been a failure. But I have fought. I am a fighter. I never give up.
Persistence pays.
Age has made me wiser, calmer and very very sure of many things.
Here are 47 things I have learnt along my path. These are things I practise.

1. Say NO to negativity of any kind.
2. People will treat you the way you allow them to.
3. If people really care for you, they will make time; Otherwise they will make excuses.
4. Be grateful for every one who is kind to you.
5. Better to have TWO genuine friends who truly care for you than a HUNDRED friends who aren't so genuine.
6. Fitness is everything.
7.Always have a 'nest…

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.

You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…
