A wonderful evening at Delhi at #timeslitfestdelhi . Post 2.
If you have read my post yesterday, you know that I have started a blog marathon, and that I will be blogging every single day, whole of this month. So hit subscribe (if you haven’t already) to get my posts in your inbox.
Yesterday, when I had signed off from the blog, I was leaving for my session at Times Lit fest at the India Habitat Centre. My session went off splendidly!
I was mobbed for signatures on books, as well as autographs. I was overwhelmed with all the love that you guys showered on me; Delhi---you ROCK! I absolutely enjoyed being with my genuine readers. Many of you expressed how much my writing meant to you, and how it had helped you. While I do get many mails saying this, hearing it face to face is a different feeling altogether. It is indescribable.
So a heartfelt thank you to each one of you who turned up yesterday and made me feel so loved. I am so grateful for this.
I have shared a few pictures and these pictures from the launch speak for themselves.
Yesterday, I had blogged while I was 35000 feet up in the air. Today too I am doing the same! The only difference is that yesterday I was on a flight to Delhi, and today I am flying back to Bangalore.
For the rest of December, I will not be travelling. I turned down many invites that I received for December; I have worked very hard the whole year, and now will be taking time off to spend with my family. My children (both of them study overseas) are home for the holidays, and the one thing I look forward to is doing stuff with them. And that is exactly what I will be doing.
Those of you who want to see photos of what I am up to, please do follow me on Instagram, where I post stories of whatever strikes my fancy. I am very regular there.
I will also be spending time with my closest friends, and catching up on some personal work. Of course, I will be drawing a lot, and blogging too. I used to blog when no one was reading me. I still blog today when thousands read me; I do not make any money from my blog. I refuse to put ads or do any kind of product endorsement on my blog even though I have been offered lakhs of rupees for the same. Some things just cannot be equated with money.
I blog because I love to connect genuinely with you! I say whatever I want to say here. It’s straight from the heart. I blog because it gives me joy to express myself hear, and interact with you. Nothing has changed!
I shall be posting this when I get back home, and get connected to wifi.
December is my favourite month of the year. Tell me in my comment box, what your plans for December are. I would love to know.
And it is always more fun, when I hear what you have to say :-)
Till then, smile. You are beautiful, my friend !
