My Journey from a Blogger to an Author!!

DSC00451One of a quote that has been inspiring me always is-

“If a drop of water falls in a lake there is no identity,

But, if it falls on a leaf it shines like a PEARL.

So, choose the BEST place where you can shine.”

Hence, it landed me in the world of writers which is indeed the best place I can never ever have dreamt for. Although I have been writing for the local newspaper during my class 7th and 8th standard, however, this didn’t last long. I gave it a pause due to my class 10th board examination. After a long break of five years, I again started writing a story in my free time, pondering that it might get published after a year. I was pursuing the third year of Engineering (Biotechnology) then. Being occupied myself into projects, assignments, and placements, unfortunately, after writing few chapters of the story I quitted again. A frenetic job in a healthcare MNC compelled me to drop the dream of becoming a renowned writer.

The years passed by. It had been more than four years working under the hectic office schedule of more than nine hours a day. Early this year, I came across the website ‘mycity4kids’ which is mainly based on parenting stories. I also found out many articles related to social issues which we generally face in our day to day life. Probably after five years, I again thought of giving a try to my writing skills. Henceforth, I wrote the first article for this website. My first blog on “A thoughtful letter to my brother’s future wife” was viewed by 63.3K readers with more than thousands of comments and shares. This provoked me to write more and more. Therefore, I wrote sixteen articles till now and the most appreciated among those was- ससुराल क्या है?” with 262.2K views and 15K likes.

With such appreciation and encouragement, I created my own blog in April 2017. My blog was selected for “Bloggers Recognition Award” and was listed on the top among fifteen nominees from worldwide. One can also visit my blog for inspirational stories and articles related to social issues. All my articles have been praised by millions of readers from across the globe.

Looking at my writing skills, my husband boosted me each day to write a book. I also thought of paying full attention towards my writing and this was a golden opportunity for me which might never return. Being a full-time private employee, managing household chores, blogging and writing a book was not my cup of tea. Believe me, it’s not that easy. Somehow, I managed (Impossible becomes possible when life gives supportive and caring life-partner).

Eventually, I finished writing my first book in thirty-five days. Now I can proudly say that, I had chosen ‘the best place where I can shine’.

Here, I would whole-heartily like to thank the website mycity4kids for providing me the platform of writing. My special thanks to my grandparents, parents, husband and my in-laws for their continuous love and blessings. I am also grateful to my friends for their anytime support.  Thank You so much, everyone!!

Glad to share ‘about my book’ with you all: –

“An UnImaginable Love”, is all about the love and hatred between two characters who are utterly contrary to nature. A tall and handsome hunk- Adarsh meets chirpy and beautiful girl Adwita at any early teenage. Adarsh struggles for his love wherein, Adwita often neglects his love. She wants to enjoy her life independently. The ups and downs in the love voyage are clearly depicted in the story.

The book also describes the post-marriage condition of girls in India, which left a deep impact on Adwita’s mind and soul. Whereas, Adarsh always tries to win her by his patience and trust. The story also revolves around the mindset of Adarsh and Adwita’s parents. The difference in opinion of the two parents of the same generation.

This love story is unique, it is endearing, it is inspiring, and it is “unimaginable”. Yes, love can shape our lives but our lives can also shape our love.

My readers can grab a copy now from amazon.in, amazon.com, shopclues.com and eBay.in

Feel free to share your feedback.

Soon, the books will be available on many more online portals- Flipkart, Snapdeal, Paytm, readwhere, power-publishers and infibeam.

When society matters, not the children

img-20170404-58e343d01433c

“Log kya kahenge: What will people say?” has really killed hopes, dreams of many in the world. This tormenting question makes us live in fear all our lives. It is very well known to us that all fingers are not of same length, I mean here is, we are born with different identities and mentality. We cannot follow the mob just because the society wants us to be. Everyone has their own choice, own taste and of course their own life. Some of the Indian parents still focus on the happiness of the society thereby, affecting their children lives. In India, the parents are very much influenced by how the society perceives them.

Although majority of parents know and understand that happiness of their children is of the foremost importance but some are still against it because of- Society. A month ago, I came across a bizarre instance where a couple having more than eight years of relationship is being forced to end up their bond forever. This is just because the girl’s parents thinks- “What will people say, what will society think if I marry my daughter to the guy she loves?”  In spite of being from same caste, same financial status there is so many hurdles in the couple’s life. Readers will be stunned to know that the restriction is only from the girl’s side whereas the boy’s parents are happy with their son’s happiness. This shows the wide differences in mentality between the two parents of the same generation.

Also, we cannot disagree on the fact that Indian parents are very much protective and they do care for their children. But, when it comes to their children’s most crucial decision, they urge to think about the society first. They think their social reputation will be at stake and the taunt they will be hearing from the friends and relatives will be pitiful. I just revealed the single case here; there are still countless pathetic situations which are being faced by youngsters every single second. Running away from house, going against of parents is something I strongly don’t support but, these cases can be easily prevented if parents think only about the children not the society.

My opinion says- “today, children are mature enough to distinguish between right and wrong. Majority of them are highly educated and are working in renowned companies. Undoubtedly, their parents are the reason behind this. I whole- heartedly appreciate the parent’s efforts. It will be more grateful, if the parents support them in taking the best decision of their life”. However, I do believe that after few years this won’t repeat.  The generation which is suffering now will never let this happen with their children anymore. As they have undergone the trauma and torture in their love voyage.

Please do read and share your views like you have been doing before. Thank you so much!!

In search of meaningful answers…

img-20170323-58d391314b188We live in a country which is a land of variety of cultures and traditions where etiquettes, rituals, beliefs, values are the vital components of our society. Where all the relations are respected and valued, but when it comes to the behavior with new comer in the family- Daughter-in-law (Bahu) we could easily notice the wide differences which might turn the marriage into horrid and disharmony. Although the generation is changing, girls are allowed to pursue their career and achieve their dreams but the mindset of the Indian in-laws are still the same. Coming to our so called Sanskriti, it does not teach any discrimination between DIL and any other family member’s .Still, we could not expect the gender equality in Indian families where son-in-law is treated as their own son and daughter-in-law as an outsider.

Experiences shared by my followers, relatives, friends and self-faced few situations, compelled me to ask these pitiful questions which have really plagued our Indian society:

  • Taunting the Daughter-in-law at each and every activity she does. Is this what our culture and traditions taught us?
  • In majority of the families, I have seen MILs comparing their DILs with her own daughter. Why do they compare when they can’t treat their DIL in the same way as they do with their daughter?
  • Why there are so many expectations from a DIL but her own expectations are generally ignored?
  • Usually DILs are being questioned: “your parents didn’t teach you anything?” but why this question disappears when it comes to son-in-law, in case he disobeys his wife or he does anything unacceptable?
  • Why Daughter-in-laws are insulted whereas Son-in-laws are praised publicly?
  • If a son aids his wife in any chores and SIL don’t, why do MIL gets sulky and highlights the matter everywhere?
  • If a daughter can wear all sorts of modern dresses, why can’t DIL can be seen in the same? 
  • The most infuriating question which keeps me bothering is: “Why a girl is expected to transform herself from what she loves to be into something her husband’s family wants her to be??”

This is the time to change our own self rather than changing the Daugher-in-laws. It doesn’t matter how educated a girl is or how well she is earning, a DILs worth is nowhere in her in-laws family. In reality, we need to change our mentality at least for the upcoming generation. If we want to live blissfully we should modify our frame of mind at any cost.

Here, I request readers to like, share and comment your opinions and also suggest some other ways for the betterment of Indian girls and of course for the Indian families. Last of all, I would also like to express gratitude to my readers and followers who appreciated my previous blogs and provided me with another opportunity to write.  Thanks!!
