On writing and the power of words
Click on the picture to enlarge.This is a screen shot of the 'Top Authors' at Flip-Kart.
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.
You must be so proud! You surely deserve this
