In India soon :)

Hi all, Apologies if I have not responded to anyone who has written to me and asked me my travel dates--it is pure oversight. Making amends through this blog post, because I know you would read it for sure! :-) Many of you wanted to meet me and wanted me to sign your copy of the book. I am reaching Mumbai  on 13th(yes! day after tomorrow!)  noon (Hooray!). I would be leaving on 15th. I am meeting Guru and Shru at this lovely place   (thanks to Guru's suggestion) at  Juhu, Mumbai on 14th (December) morning .  If anyone wants to join us, please let Guru or Shru, know. :-) I would be in Bangalore from  18th to 22nd. A few of us are planning to meet on 20th (December) morning , at Cafe Coffee Day, Indiranagar, 100 feet road. Prashant  (he won the Royal Challengers Contest and is the Chief blogger of RCB), Prats   and  Varun will be there and Gazal   too. If  you want to join us, please let Prashant or Prats know. I would be having limited Internet access and so ther

The Blue Chrysanthemums (Wordless wednesday no.17)

I stumbled upon this wonderful poem , I just had to mail it to him. He slipped away from work at lunch time, Hiding these blue chrysanthemums Behind his back. And he rang the bell. I laughed in delight At the unexpected surprise And he looked at me with a kind of look that comes Only when love burns with an intense depth No words were needed His eyes said it all But still he said them to me, "For the most beautiful woman, in my eyes," I smiled to hide my bashfulness, my joy And asked him to have lunch But my heart had already begun to hum And it was hard to drown the song.

The perfect pet

Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

A personal note from me to you

What amazing and loyal readers I have! No wonder I keep posting so regularly despite having such a crazily hectic schedule. I also gave my blog a new makeover. It now has all the links right on top, to all the stuff I do, which was missing earlier. I really like the new look and I am sure you will too.

This one is so much simpler, neater and cuter too :-) [New improved like the adverts go] I even managed to fit my 'current mood video' in a tiny box--do listen to it for an instant 'perk me up' feel :-) So many of you discovered that my blog has been nominated for 'Best personal Blog' by Indibloggies and you wrote to me saying you have already voted for me--even before I asked! I was really surprised by the number of mails I got--A big thank you to all of you who wrote to me and voted for me too. And if you have been a silent reader it would take you only a minute of your time to ma
