Beta Readers Invited for The Masquerade

Hello dear readers, It was long back, almost a year ago, when I had invited beta readers for The Masquerade – my debut novel. But then my book took multiple revisions, faced a lot of issues and after nearly 5 edits and deletions, it is now in shape of a novel. Meanwhile, my readers got married, had babies, joined colleges […]

My Corner – Adieu 2019

Hello, my dear lovely friends, It feels so good to write to you after a long gap. The last 3 months have been the most difficult days of my life but I’m glad that I am able to deal with the situations in a better manner. Every dark day teaches you something… every tough time prepares you well for the […]

My Corner – The Current Affairs

Hello people, I was supposed to update the next part of Tangles & Ties on Tuesday but couldn’t. Apologies. With so much happening in the country right now, I devoted all the time I had to serious reading and research to get my facts right from RELIABLE sources like – The Constitution/ CAAct originally published in the Gazette of India/United […]

Previous Chapters of Tangles & Ties

Hello friends, I am extremely sorry. The last 3-4 days were too hectic as I had to finish a project by 30th Dec, ie today and submit it. I couldn’t upload the previous chapters of Tangles & Ties. I will begin to update them now. One more thing – I haven’t replied to the hundreds of messages in my inbox […]

One Step Every Day

Hello, my dear lovely people, I’m here coz I was missing all of you and this blog, and everything that makes me smile… including MaNan and my stories.

Taking A Break

Hello everyone, On August 22, I wrote a post here – ‘A Ray of Sunshine’ — It was about how things were not going well on my side. I was trying to find some ray of sunshine in people close to me. It has been two months since then and the rays of sunshine have only been dimming at my […]

Hello

To create, to share, to bring alive every pain, every truth and all lies All that waited to be shared and discussed But couldn’t leave the confines of a broken heart & closed eyes ~ManitaV~ Hello everyone, This post is about this blog – ~ Few people were complaining about the advertisements […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 19: A Frequency That Matched

It was a right that he had just given her. On him! She blinked her eyes twice, wondering what she had heard was true and how profound it was for her. She had always thought about him in gratitude. Everything and anything, she was thankful for in her life, she had credited it to him. During troubles, she remembered no […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 18: The Right

This is for Pixie Pari –  I read each and every comment of yours, LOVED them and wait for them. Never think that I am ignoring you or not replying to you. I DID!!! Soooo many times. You didn’t get the notification, I guess. To everyone else who comments on my updates and thinks that I don’t reply to them, […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 17: Angels In Disguise

I apologise for making you wait for this story. Actually, I have always written one story at a time and I love to give back to back updates as the story stays in my mind and moves at a fast pace. I live in that story, mostly. But to switch between Tangles & Ties and Beyond Every Border is like […]

Clarification

I have been adding – ‘Next Chapter Link’ with old updates as a lot of people were having issues in finding the chapters & reading the story in a flow. Now you can click on the link at the end of each chapter to read the ‘next chapter’ An old update got reposted in the morning while doing this. Apologies […]

2/9/19 – 12/9/19: Spark & Spice Festival

This year Ganpati festival is to begin on the 2nd of September, 2019. Each year Ganpati Bappa arrives at our home and fills our lives with peace and happiness. So this year, I decided to spill over that peace and happiness in the lives of all those who love my works and have loved my book Spark & Spice – […]

Small Note: 26/8/19

Some people are facing issues regarding the older chapters of Tangles & Ties. When I checked it on my phone, even I couldn’t open as it said – ‘Page Not Found’ It happened because of high traffic on the blog and the increased number of posts which clog the space, or something like that, which I could understand only in […]

New VM: Tangles & Ties

So, I’ve made a very basic, juvenile kinda VM for Tangles & Ties… but I had to do it coz I couldn’t ‘not’ make it … I don’t know if it makes sense… If you find it cute – like I found it adorable – it is PURELY due to MaNan and nothing else… Will remove tomorrow… coz I don’t […]

A Ray of Sunshine: My Corner

Hello Everyone, I’m sorry for going silent for a couple of days. I have been going through a tough patch in my personal life, almost a crisis, since some time now. I was hoping for the light to see the day but it didn’t. And the hardships continued. Sometimes, the struggle continues for long… I was trying my best and I […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 16: Distances Between Us

  Anshuman had been looking away from the camp, towards the dry terrains, focused far away on the infinity, on the darkening sky welcoming the knock of the dusk, and the setting sun leaving subtle hues of several layers of grey and black merging with the blue, almost overshadowing it. Struggling with the gush of emotions rustling inside his chest, […]

Hopes & Dreams: Broken And Otherwise – My Corner

I had planned for a post on ‘My Corner’ to be on every Saturday!! But apparently, we can plan nothing in life… and it’s cool 🙂 It’s my blog and I am allowed to write as and when I feel like… Right? 🙂 I couldn’t write any update or anything worth posting for last two days because I was talking […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 15: Right There!

Anshuman had his eyes fixed outside the window of the cab. Kabul was like India. Four wheelers of all brands and makes, from most expensive high-end cars to the most ancient, vintage ones. The two-wheelers with drivers without a helmet, the disregard for traffic lights and the highly congested, snailing traffic reminded him of India. The highway towards Jalalabad and […]

Little Cheers: My Corner

Hello dear friends, It’s Saturday and from today, I’m planning to write one post under ‘my corner’ every Saturday to chat with all of you connected to me in some way or the other. This blog is like my second home, I always say… A place where I go to every day, without fail and feel like a big part […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 14: The Long Wait!

I have NO WORDS to thank all of you who read this story and tell me about it in some way or another. Your comments, messages, emails, DMs are precious. I may not be able to reply to all but my gratitude and heartfelt wishes are always with you! Stay blessed. Stay happy. Keep smiling. Love you! ……………………………….. I’ve made […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 13: Difficult Terrains

    “You have no idea what a terrifying moment looks like!” Manasvi remarked. Krish smiled slightly while switching his phone on. Then he said, “Actually, I have!” “Err…?” Manasvi knew that she had spoken what she should not have spoken. Krish continued, “As a journalist, I have been a witness to unimaginable tragedies. I’ve covered Assam and Kashmir in […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 12: With Her

It feels easier to interact on random posts on ‘my corner’ and talk in detail but so difficult to reply to comments on the stories… so I settle with likes and emoticons as I have nothing much to say on comments on stories — except that — “I am deeply humbled by the love my stories and I get. It […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 11: Towards The Destination

Manasvi was at the T3 terminal of Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, with a Provisional entry permit to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan based on her application of being an Afghan resident and torn outdated hand-written passport. She knew no one with a Tazkira and now the only way to get a Tazkira made for herself was to go […]

My Corner 1/8/19: The Subtle Connection :)

Hello Everyone, A lot of people have been asking me where I was in last few days and why I was missing… Firstly – I’m fine! All is well on my side… Thank you so much for the concern. You have no idea how much it means to me. Now –  I was on an impromptu family vacation to Goa […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 10: New Horizons

Manasvi had been reading the article, about beggars in Mumbai, to be sent in the print with the next issue of The Insight. She had sorted some fifteen photographs that had moved her deeply. Most of them were of children pushed into beggary through human trafficking. Along with the Insight, she had shared the details with the local police but […]

Failed Efforts: A Chat Post

Hello Everyone, It is a general chat post. Nothing special. So you can stop reading wherever you feel bored. I was missing you all. So, I thought I’ll drop a few words and talk to you about me and my routine these days. I hope all is well at your end. It has been a hectic fortnight for me – […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 9: New Directions

For people who wanted a face for Krish Sahay: “My problematic upbringing and meager resources turned out to be strong points. Thanks to you. Got the job!!” ……………………………………… Her little email to Anshuman didn’t get any reply. Manasvi left the office building of The Insight and took a cab for her home. All through the way, she checked her phone […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 8: Scaling High!

Thank you for the tremendous response to this story. Love you all. I know it is slow, but it is meant to be so!” ……………………………………….. It was a ritzy cabin on the twentieth floor of a magnificent building on the Western suburbs of Mumbai. Manasvi had lost most of her confidence when she stepped out of the elevator and found […]

Few Things!

People are still asking me about the password, even after making a full post about it. That says how no one reads my notes *sulks* On a lighter note – “So that means that I am allowed to post long notes… No one reads anyway :))) *Long Note* alert!!! Hey everybody, I just felt like writing to you about so […]

Short Story: The Ticking Sound

Hello people,  I woke up early morning determined to write a short story that has been nagging me since 2-3 days. So I thought of penning it down. It is just a One-Shot – A one part short story! I haven’t proofread it. I haven’t even read it again. I wrote it in one hour straight! Please excuse the mistakes. […]

Holiday Moments

( Old post : Just the name changed )   Hello friends, Due to unavoidable circumstances, my trip was canceled and I couldn’t go on my already unplanned vacation decided at the spur of the moment. Certain things happen and we can’t help it. Life is such! Initially, it pinched. But then, we decided that since we were already on […]

Short Notice: Taking A Break

    Dear Friends, I’m going out for an impromptu holiday! Hence, taking a break from posting updates for a few days. I will not be available on social media too. Kindly do not worry, if you don’t get replies to your DMs/ messages/ or mails. I will be back on 30/06/2019… Next update of both Tangles & Ties and […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 7: Well Wishers For Life

  Mortified at being cornered so easily, and grateful for her promise that she was with him in this pursuit, Anshuman sheepishly rolled his eyes, pressed his lips, and turned to look around at the road. Then, he slightly huffed, “I’m sorry!” “It’s okay!” Softly she murmured and grinned as that subtle gesture from him was adorable. Her assessment of […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 6: With You

{Thank you so much for the love and support to this story! It means so so so much to me. Love you all… Take care } ……………………………………….. After finishing the packing, Manasvi changed into a sage-green georgette, chikankari dress suit with a palazzo embroidered with mirror-work and lace dupatta with intricate lacework and threadwork. She felt heavy at heart while […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 5: Difficult Interactions

“Yes! The SDF rescued us in Syria. After this short break, I’m commissioned to Israel.” Manasvi couldn’t move after accidentally overhearing this one sentence. As if a thick coat of fresh wet cement glued her feet to the terrace floor. Her heart was beating hard… so hard that it threatened to leap out of her throat. She chewed a part […]

Fighting and Surviving Plagiarism

Hello Everyone, It sounds funny now, as I write it. This plagiarism thing is happening at such a frequent basis that every few days, I find myself writing notes more than the updates – One note about how this stupid thing happened, followed by another note saying – “Thank you for your love and support. It means a lot to […]

Open Letter to Another Fraud

Dear Reader, I won’t call you a writer as someone who can’t think of an original Book Title or New Character names for people she claims to love… CANNOT BE A WRITER!!! You follow me, read my work and have commented on my books. You clearly know of how much mental agony I went through when dealing with plagiarism not […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 3: The Hero!

August 2017 New Delhi, India. Preksha tried several different western outfits to be taken on honeymoon with Varun. She had ordered a few dresses online and bought a few from GK 2 last night. Most of the tops and shorts were so trendy that her face lit up when she tried them and came out of the washroom. Manasvi gave […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 2: Awkward Relationships

Thank you for the tremendous response to this story. I was skeptical before writing it as I wasn’t sure if it would be accepted. It is pretty intense and dark themed.

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 1: Scars of The Past

This is a strong themed story and may not go down well with a lot of people. I can only assure you that not even a word is over-exaggeration. In fact, I have downplayed the issues, keeping in mind the sensitivity of the topic chosen.  The laws, procedures, experiences are not my imagination or fictional… I have done thorough research […]

Beyond Every Border : Prologue

Why a new story?? — Because I am a writer, and an artist and have moods… hahaha!! Because this story has been nagging me strongly since few months… and vaguely since few years… I cannot ‘not write’ it… Also… whenever I write a light story, I crave to write an intense one… and when I am writing an intense one, […]

Introduction

  With all my other books coming back on this site, how is it even possible that Twisted Minds doesn’t come back :)) This book is my personal favourite for several reasons – 1. It belongs to a different genre than romance that I usually write. It is a mystery-romance with a lot of psychological stuff. 2. It is not […]

Fire & Ice: A Word from the writer

I’ve decided to make available my first Manan ff – ‘Fire & Ice’ on this platform for all the readers who had missed it before when it was first published at wattpad.. I am skeptical about posting it as this story was plagiarised word by word on wattpad. Also, this was the first one to be sent for publishing but […]

I’m shifting home…

Hey there, I thought I will be able to manage so didn’t inform before but I’m just too stuck up as I’m shifting my home… too much work… Will update tonight… 💖💖💖

This site is FREE

Hey there everyone, This is something very important. Some people said that when they tried to create a WordPress account… they were asked to pay a fee. It’s extremely shocking for me and I have been telling people from day 1 that you are NOT supposed to pay even a dime. It will be a major let down for me, […]
