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

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

-From the author of “An UnImaginable Love”

An Inimitable Relation- the best teacher of my life !!

Let me start with the proverb-

“The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”

Meaning, the wise mother who rocks the cradle makes her child great who can rule the world. Yes, she is my “Mother” who is the best teacher of my life. No other bond is as precious as the bond between a mother and her child. Her love, care, and warmth is incomparable. Among so many relations on earth, the mother is the one who influences the child the most. Hence, she is not only the mother but also the first teacher of my life. From Maa to Mumma to Mummy she made me aware of the realistic world. From the first day when I stepped into this world till now, she has been teaching me new lessons.

I am really finding it a difficult task to jot down the things I have learned from her as I am still in a learning phase and will need her lessons throughout my life. Since childhood, she taught me to be independent and to be valiant enough to tackle the mischievous happenings in the world. She is the one who taught me to differentiate between the right and wrong. Though she has never raised her hand to me but scolded me whenever I did anything wrong. Many a time, she guided me in choosing the best path which had always lead to the beautiful destination till now.

I still remember the days when I got fewer marks in class 3rd due to health issues and I was very much disappointed thinking that I might have to repeat the class. I lost my confidence then, but my mother’s caring touch and encouraging attitude boosted my spirit. Her confidence and believe in me taught me the lesson of “Never Surrender”. Hence, I worked hard and secured the good position in the class. She not only taught me to respect elders but she also taught me to accept the mistake and bow down your head when you are wrong and if you are right, fight for it.

I have also learned the multitasking skills from her. The way she manages work and family, the way she loves equally to all of us always compels me to follow her. No other teacher has taught me beyond studies but my mother has given me every small to big lessons which are essential to survive in this cruel world. Although, teaching is a profession which creates other professions Mother is a kind of teacher whose blessings, love, care, and support takes the children to the utmost height. She also taught me to be patient and work honestly. The most important thing she taught me is to ‘Never boast’.

However, I have many friends to share jokes and to laugh with them but whenever I feel grief-stricken, I always seek help from my mother. No one can ever console me like her. I know she is the only person who will always understand me and will accept me no matter whatever the situation comes. I also thank her for not only teaching me with the life lessons but for also transferring her writing skills into me. She is a good story writer and many of her articles are published in the newspaper.

Last but not the least, I always owe my success to you. I would like to thank her for every important lesson she taught me till now. Thanks in advance for the chapters which are still unlearnt.

Thank you, Mummy for trusting me and making me what I am today. I love you, Mummy…. You are the best and the most favorite teacher of mine.

‘Kundli’- are we still believing in it??

Let me brief you with the meaning of Kundli first. It is also known as birth chart, janampatri or janam kundli. As we already know that, it’s just a part of mathematics which is given a name ‘Astrology’. In India, the moment a child is born, we start predicting his/her future based on kundli. How illogical is it? How can it decide whether a child is going to rule the world or whether he/she will be categorized below the poverty line? Although we know, all success and failure depend on an individual’s attitude, the way of working etc. still we trust on Kundli frantically. Why? Well, this is blind to believe – how the positions of stars and planets at the individual’s birth time affects their martial journey?

The worst cases of Kundli are seen mostly in Indian marriages. Ample of families in India don’t permit their son/daughter to marry the one they love just because of the mismatch in their horoscope. I am sure no one thinks or calculate or match their kundli before falling in love. Partners can live happily if there is a love and understanding between them even if the kundli matching fails. Astrology is just probability, it can never predict the accurate future.

There are many examples where 36 Gunas (numbers) are matched and still couples are heading towards the divorce. And, there are examples where Gunas are unmatched and couples have successfully completed their 25 years of marriage. I came across few incidents closely and would like to share few of them here-

–    One of my friend’s brother got married 17 years back and according to their horoscope: His wife should be dead by the 3rd year of marriage (a very famous pandit Ji said when they got married). Now, they are living happily together. Their horoscope also stated that they are going to face utmost difficulty in having kids.  At present, they are parents of 14 years old twins’ sons.

Hope this incident can eradicate the blind trust on Kundli.

–    Another example is heart-breaking where my very close friend was in a beautiful relationship for five years. They shared the same caste and the same family background (these are another hurdle in many families). Everything was running smoothly until the boy’s parents consulted the so-called Astrologer. In a blink of an eye, this relationship came to an end when the astrologer revealed about the hurdles they will be facing in their marriage. The boy’s parents, being a professor in a renowned university trusted the horoscope blindly and compelled the couple to end up their affair forever.

How naive it is of us to believe that the whole institution of matrimony depends on our horoscope? Who are we fooling? Just because a person was born at so and so date/time or has some dosha or some other crap, he/she will be responsible for the whole turn of events in other’s life. This is the most ridiculous of customs I have seen and heard. Who is responsible if a marriage breaks up? Your kundli/horoscope? Or the 2 people who took vows of making the marriage work?

However, many families also use this Kundli funda just as an excuse to politely reject matches. Anyway, time is changing.  Rules of those days might not always work these days. We are not in days when people relied only on pigeons for communication and horoscopes for marriages. There’s no point in looking for ‘married couples’ who had their horoscopes matched. If they are happy, credit shouldn’t be given to horoscopes. Many other things constitute a happy marriage.
