What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017. Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me. What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times! My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on my Facebook and on my Instagram too. On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun st

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot. 2. People you don't know will hate you. 3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go. 4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit. 5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them. 6. You will offend people. 7.You will lose friends. 8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place. 9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas. 10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!) ______________________________ Buy my latest book: Check out the reviews!

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
