On writing and the power of words

It feels truly amazing to see my name with the likes of Ruskin Bond, Roald Dahl (totally adore his writing), Meg Cabot and Dan Brown!
Today I also got some truly moving mails about my second book. I wept reading some of the mails I got just now and am blinking away my tears as I type this.
I feel so humbled that my writing has touched lives, helped people, spoken to them, moved them to tears, made them laugh, filled hope in their hearts, has taken them to a different world, inspired them, touched them,infused them,shown them the dark side, surrounded them with hope, love and all things wonderful.
I feel so humbled that people look up to me. I truly do not have all the answers--I am simply a fellow traveller, in this journey called life. No-one knows when the final destination will arrive for any of us. For all you know, it could be tomorrow. So, I try to remember that every single day, and do my bit to be able to say "I have lived today".
As I go to bed tonight, I am filled with gratitude for the ability to write and the ability to make a difference in somebody's life.
And I hope to keep writing as long as I live.
ps: A big thanks to all of you who wrote in and to all of you who said it here too.
