Musing: Help A Child Create Happy Memories This...

content discovered on Thursday, October 15, 2015 in blog children dreams hope love musing musings pandal hopping vivel pujo love

I was brought up in a household with not one but two sets of parents: my mother, my father, my abbu and my chhotoma. It never occurred to me, until I was much older, that the latter were actually my uncle and aunt. In fact, they get pretty irritated whenever I call them my uncle and my aunt. They insist that they will never be anything else but abbu and chhotoma for me. The concept of a child being an orphan, to be without both a mother and a father, was alien to me…until I began to interact with the wor...

They have taught me invaluable life lessons. So here are the 10 Life Lessons I Learned From My Cats: 1.

Musing: Things To Remember Part 2

content discovered on Tuesday, September 8, 2015 in happiness motivation musing musings

The common misconception about life is that it's too hard, too short, brings too much trouble, and too much of unhappiness.But it's not.Life is honestly however you choose to look at it.It's filled with little miracles throughout the day. But you are too busy to take any notice of it. Have you ever noticed the sunrise? Or the sunset?Have you ever noticed the smell of the Earth before the first drop of rain hits the ground?Have you ever noticed that some people love you enough to do anything for you? That...

Musings: How Life Got Better Since 2013

COUP d’EAST Back in 2013 when I wrote a year review I had mentioned how things had become ten times better when I’d discovered the world of blogging. There was this site called Write Up Café (which I am not too sure exists right now or not). Anyway – they decided to have a competition among the Indian bloggers by dividing them up into North, South, East, and West Zones. And we were a part of a larger group of bloggers who represented the east zone. Hence the name, Coup d’East. ( I forget who came up wit...

I realized over the last few months that your attitude is the key to your success.

We are all trying too hard stay relevant in a world which is completely irrelevant.We go our whole lives trying to find someone who would love us despite our scars...We never stop to think the only way to heal those scars is to love ourselves first.All of us are inherently good people who make mistakes and slip up - and make complete messes.What we need to remember is that everyone can be saved. No, you don't need a hero to rescue you. You are perfectly capable of being your own hero.Learn to forgive you...

Motivational Monday: The Break in Faith

Hello Reader,It is hard to write a motivational post when you're not feeling too inspired. And when I woke up this morning I was not even sure if I'd put up this post today or just skip ahead to next Monday. As the day progressed, I realized that no one going to be there to motivate you all the time. Sometimes you need to be your own hero.One of the things that helps me get back on track is to remember one particular scene from Arrow, Season 2.

Dear Whoever Clicked the Link to Read this Post,Have you ever secretly wanted to do/have/be something but put it out of your head because there was a voice inside your head telling you - "Are you crazy?

Tell that voice to go take a hike.I became acquainted with the law of attraction back in the later half of 2009. However, it was not until 2013 that I began to under...

The Writing Desk: Before You Write That Novel

I just literally finished writing my new novel, Girl Code, and I because the writing bug has bitten me - I thought of blogging about what one should do when they have decided to undertake the task of writing a novel. (Also I need to space out going back and making edits.) Screen shot of the Draft in its Early StagesJust like with the short story, there is no right or wrong way of writing the novel.

The Writing Desk: When You Write A Short Story

content discovered on Monday, June 8, 2015 in the writing desk

Some Thoughts About When You Write A Short Story I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. Even a couple of months back, when someone would come up to me – tell me they read my work, congratulate and launch into the story of their own struggles with writing – it would irk me just a little bit. Writing was after all my comfort zone. The safe spot, as most of my cats would put it. But over time, I realized, there are more than enough stories for all of us to tell. There is more than enough ways to tel...

Image Courtesy: fb/The IdealistI used to be a quiet child. I learned to speak much later than was normal for a kid (it had worried my mother no end). But when I could make sense of what was going on in my head, I realized that I had the ability to think a mile a minute. I've perhaps taken myself on innumerable adventures as a child. I am pretty sure the on-lookers thought I was crazy. But I was completely happy in my world of make-belief. Being deeply influenced by fairy tales, I would sometimes preten...

Musings: Going Indie for The Guitar Girl

When I finished writing The Guitar Girl back in 2013, I was lucky enough to have caught the eye of Hachette India - for their Young Adult section. The woman who used to work in their department asked me increase the word count, think of new ideas...and within a week, my 20,000 worded novella had fleshed out in 40,000 words novel. But sadly she switched jobs and her supervisor didn't like the modern day epistolary format we'd both loved. I told myself it was minor setback and began hunting for publisher...

The Great Indian Litterbug

When I was first placed in my new home, the corner of a street, I heard the men mutter about how they were wasting their time. Of course, that got me really indignant. Why would placing me in a new home mean it was an utter wastage of time for them, eh? After all, I was prepared to do my duty. How hard could it possibly be to eat up all the waste paper, the wrappers of chocolates, the discarded newspapers and the innumerable cigarette butts? I would keep them all intact, and I would proudly deliver it ...

The Three Products for ReviewAs a writer, I'm perhaps the easiest person to buy gifts for. Give me a journal or a notebook, I'm a happy girl. I have even hoarded a lot of pretty looking journals because I've not been sure what to write in them. I occasionally like to take them down, print my name on inside the first page, and put it back in my drawer of notebooks and journals. It is no surprise to me then that Swarnali recommended I apply for the MatrikaS Paper Product Review. While filling up the form...
