Happy Pongal

This is very well another OB post. I am finding little motivation in the things around me to come up with some plot for my next story. So for now, this is all I have. Pongal wishes to all of you. Enjoy the festive celebrations and the food while it lasts, for, you never know when you will be stuck in a country that doesn't give you a holiday for Pongal.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

P.S.2: Visit his Flickr site here. Its got some interesting stuff. *Compensation for P.S.1* :P

Dreams do come true...

Hi all,

Hope you guys had a good start to the new year and I sincerely wish you all a wonderful year ahead.

I know I've been totally irregular with my posts. Its sheer laziness which I conveniently call 'writer's block'! :P After a long time, its a break from stories (as if there have been many) to share something personal with you guys.

A year ago, this time, I published one of my first 'long' stories titled 'The Lost Identity' in my blog. Exactly a year later, the story has been published! :D Ironically, the book says 'Short stories by bloggers'! :P

The book is titled 'The Eleven' and its got stories from other amazing bloggers as well (including my favourites Mask, Nivi and Suchitra). It’s priced at INR 150.00. I hope you guys can grab a copy of it. :)

The details of the book can be found here and you can order a copy here. Drop me a comment in case you need any help with the ordering.

That’s about it for now. I hope to follow this post with lots more good news and stories!

Take care and hugs! :D
