It’s been some time since we interacted. How has life been?
Changed the face of the blog. I hope the new layout will now make it easier for readers to browse through different sections of this blog. It now has all the important icons on the front page.
The New Homepage also has a scrolling carousel at the bottom to browse through all of my books at one place. Each book has all chapters clustered together. I’m trying to make it so efficient such that you can read one chapter after another without going back to the main book, without getting confused… but it is going to take some time.
All previous chapters of Tangles & Ties have been posted on the blog.
Heartfelt thanks for joining this blog. It means a lot to me :))
From this week, I will add another section to my blog – It is about the process of writing and publishing. I will log my journal into the publishing of my books so that you know how it goes and is helpful for new budding writers too.
It has been 9 days since I disabled the comment section here and was inactive at every social media site. This break was very important for me for several reasons –
- I wanted to avoid a few people who have been a cause of a headache to me. I didn’t know how to do that. So, I disabled the comment section and left social media for some time. Nothing above peace of mind for me.
- I wanted to free myself from the trap that every writer falls in – A cycle of “Posting updates — Waiting for responses — Replying to comments — Feeling bad, thinking where regular readers and commentators disappeared — Feeling bad about not being able to reply to people who are regularly there — Trying to validate your writing by responses you get” … It Is A Trap!!!
I didn’t want to fall in that trap and it is a beautiful feeling to know that I can manage to write and post even if I don’t get even one comment or like, at all… It is very important for every writer’s growth to be able to survive without associating your work with praises or criticism. I’m still trying to achieve that.
That does not mean that you will not comment now :)))
Please continue to write all those who can write to me… all that you feel about the story… I love to read your responses and comments and they make my day.
3. Most importantly, I wanted to rejuvenate, heal and spend time editing Twisted Minds. I’m so glad to inform that the book is shaping well, at least according to me.
So, overall, it was a great time for me. Do let me know how it went for you and how is the blog looking now.
I am opening the comment section, as I am told that some people do like to write comments and some read comments along with the update…
Anything that brings a smile on your face.
That is my only purpose to write and post freely.
Love you all,
Take care. Stay blessed.

Still facing internet problem due to the cyclone aftereffects 😒
Lots of love to you Dr. Manita. I hope you are doing well and I pray you don’t fall in above mentioned trap and keep writing more and more good, inspiring and awesome writings/stories. All the best and good wishes for you.
Sorry I was disappeared from all sns sites because of my personal reasons. I missed reading a lot but couldn’t come here even for a single Minute. I am hoping to have a smooth schedule here on.
Btw you are right a break form SNS does wonders. I am still not opening any other sns except coming here but yes I miss talking with my friends and you. I miss sharing my thoughts with you and my friend Pooja. Will be back soon hopefully.
Why r u humko bda tadpayinggggggggg..???!!😁😁😂😂 di plz
Updated rey :))))
Aa gya aa gya …!!! Thnkuuuuuu di❤
Di when will u update BEB…???
Tonight… I mean… now!
There is no update 😑😴
I did… updated
Hi manita, actually i have a request, will u plz tell us the days on which u r going to upload the stories. I will be helpful for us.
I will do it today… make a proper schedule and tell you!
Thanks for the patience 🙂
Was waiting for this one to get reopened…..!!!!! Was missing it so much……😍😍🤗
Awesome superb waiting for desperately now u update so beautiful u are fabulous
I m glad u opened comment section. I love all ur stories. Every story teaches me something. The stories have everything drama, love, romance, villains(not in literal sense),comedy, cute and sweet moments. Its fun to read them. I understand why u closed comment section. Its truely amazing when u dont look for validation from people or when u do things for ur happiness and passion not coz people want to be like that. And everyone reader will have something to say abt ur story on how they want it to be? Some like me tell u abt it, some wont say but its really difficult not to consider pleasing them when u know what they want. So its better if u dont know what are their expectation. I m really happy some writer is there who writes not to gain the numbers but she writes coz she loves to write. I really had very bad experiance abt these comment. People ask abt ur opinion on the story and when u be truthful they will bash u infront of all people. So i prefer not to comment how strongly i feel to say something.
Thank you so much for understanding my pov and writing back to me.
Every reader and her opinion means a LOT to me. I read them, consider them and feel really happy.
At the same time, I try not to let them get over me.
Yes, negative opinions hurt sometimes, but if a writer goes by every positive and negative comment then, he can never write the true story.
Thanks again ,
Lots of love
Your stories made my day……keep writing,lots of love
Thank you dear.
I will keep writing 🙂
Hi dear, u don’t know how much happy I am because now I can read all of ur stories once again I missed them so much. I m waiting for the twisted minds book.
Thank you Kalpana.
Each smile that comes on readers’ face is my true gain while trying to write something worthwhile 🙂
Oh thank you for open comment section again
I love all ur books
Keep writing dear
We r with you
All the best
Thank you Anum.
I will keep writing and you keep reading.
Wish you all the best 🙂
I am glad that you open comment section again… It’s like you freed me from cage… But it was important for your growth .. your thinking is just out of world … Like even I wrote a comment I want that someone will like or reply or agree with me… But you are beyond all traps… Congratulations di .. keep it up… Keep motivating ….
I remember your message where you had asked me to open the comment and section and I had told you that I will consider.
I was just taking this time to recoup myself and know more about me. I guess it proved to be a beautiful time for me.
Thanks for the patience. Lots of love. Stay blessed.
Hi.. loved your story Manita… keep it up babes😘bless you
Thank you dear.
Take care 🙂
Wattpad was easy to converse.. And we r adjusting to thia blog.. It will take lill time to learn everything.. I missed textng u very much
Everything takes time when we begin to learn. Eventually we get used to the things that are changed and new to us.
We will get used to this blog too.
Thanks a lot 🙂

U are such a sweetheat dear… God bless u
Wish you the same. God bless you.
Stay happy and Keep Smiling
Hey di!!! Hiiii!!!!! Missed you soooooo much!!!! Well to start off let’s just say I have learnt so much in the past week!! Especially that nothing is permanent and if something bad happens with you it is because God has something better for you! I couldn’t have ever imagined how life could completely turn around in just a matter of 1 week a few days only!!!! Well to think of it a lot can happen in a single day also!! I also realised it once again that your true close people the ones whom you can trust your life on will only be there for you in your tough times. And you get to know who those close ones are in your tough times! But as I said I now strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and things will happen when they have to!!
Coming to the blog it is just amazing and so easy to use now!!! It actually didn’t take me anytime or difficulty to read the updates which I had missed while I was gone!!! It has become very smooth and accessible!!! All thanks to you for taking so much pains and giving in so much of your time and energy and effort!! A big big hug to you!!!!
Read the comment section and got to know you were not well!! Please take care of yourself and come back only when you’re completely fine!!
And and and off course missed writing the comments in a few updates because first I was caught up and then comment section was disabled but now that it is back and I am back I am super duper happy!!!
Wish you keep growing like this and this blog reaches millions of people and millions of people read your story because knowledge and stories batne se hi badhti hai😋😅
Love you lots!! And big hugs!!!!!
You are one of those whom I dearly missed in this gap. I’m sorry to know that even you were absent in this time period when I was not there. Hope all is well at your end.
I totally agree with what you have learnt in this time. Life changes in one day, one moment and only those who are closest to you are found standing with you in this time as far ones can’t do anything even if they want to be with you.
But these dramatic lessons are learnt by harsh circumstances. I really hope you didn’t have to go through something bad to learn this.
Glad you liked the changes in the blog. Your comments, your words, your presence is very precious for me and my stories. Always remember that.
Lots of love for you.
Di I can’t tell you how happy I get when you post anything!! Be it the stories or small updates about life or anything!!! Whatever’s you write always seem to put a smile on my face and motivate me! Always!!
And about me I believe even if I had to go through something bad it was like a lesson learnt like it’s preparing me for the better part of my life. Also maybe it’s me or the human nature that we can’t appreciate the good times if we haven’t been through the bad ones!
Everything is well at my end now and well to be honest I am pretty excited for what’s gonna happen in the near future
P.s. will send you personal message when everything gets finalized.
Hoping you are fine now
Lots of love!!!!!❤❤❤
Oops it got posted as anonymous i don’t know why but no worries you know it’s me
I will wait for your message. Wish you all the best in life. All the best !!

Hey beyond borders is amazing story m already in love with that book n all the previous chapters of tangled were amazing ❤️
Thank you so much. I’m grateful to the amazing readership who have accepted every story of mine, while I am experimenting with different sub-genres of romance.
It means the world to me.
Hi Manita! I absolutely love the new look of your blog and I really appreciate the efforts you put in for us for ease of access.I just want you to add your sShanak books too here.
About your updates, I am totally enjoying the cocktail of genres.
I am in love with the personalities of Manasvi and Dr. Anshuman and I am glad you chose to write a this story that is so intense and deals with so many emotions.
Twisted minds is also so good and I am in love with the pace of the story and how the leads try to hide their intentions but are helpless once they face each other..its so cute..
Will all comment on other books later. Thats all for now, Love you and Stay Blessed!
Love you so much for being with me. I have only few readers who are with me since I wrote on ShaNak.
Adding ShaNak books here is on cards. Let’s see if I get time to do that 🙂
And thank you for loving my new books too!
Hey Manita! Glad to have you back! I was wondering what might have happened..thought that you might just be busy with the streamlining the blog for us readers, didnt expect someone bothering you here too! sorry about that! Hope you got much required break and hope you are feeling better from your stomach bug!Those things are nasty!
Its always refreshing to ready anything you write, not just your stories, things you write just like that, your hellos and thank yous, everything has something motivating in them. Its pleasure to read!
And loving this place!! My favorite S&S is back – read all 6 chapters in one go…cant wait to read the rest.
BEB is so different and intriguing, all your stories are so strong on emotional content and so real!
So many fun stuff going on here, looking forward for everything!
I’m feeling much better today – physically fit and mentally strong 🙂
Thank you for all the love for my stories. Your messages even when the comment section was blocked, used to bring a smile on my face. Thank you. Lots of love to you 🙂
Whoooo..the comments section is back..so missed it.. thankyou so much for enabling it Di..I use to read comments more than commenting.. Just want to tell you that your stories are magical..and the way write them is commendable.. I was a silent reader but your stories compell to comment on it..
Love you Di ❤
You are not alone… there is an entire clan who reads comments along with updates… 😃
Thank you for the lovely words for my stories.
If they bring a smile on faces of readers, my purpose is solved 😊😊
Thanks for the new homepage -beautiful but simple. its worth the wait to read ur stories..twisted minds,spark and spice and fire and ice.
And everyone here will agree with me … A cup of coffee and ur stories are what we need to make our day ! Thank you so much.
That was such a sweet thing to say. It made my day…🤗🤗
Lots of love to you
Are we getting update of tangles and tie today??.. If yes please update it😊
I will update Tangles & Ties tomorrow as I have been on bed yesterday and today for I had severe stomach infection and was vomiting the entire day yesterday. I am fine now… just a bit weak…
That is why I didn’t update for these 2 days. Tomorrow morning, I will finish this next part and update.
No issues di…Take care of your health…Please please….We can wait…
Thank you 🙂
I’m fine now. But preferred to lay down on bed and talk to all of you.
Lots of love…
That was me
You toh know what I went through yesterday… you were like THERE when I told you that I was vomiting 😀
Yes di was trying to explore your blog…Trying to get acquainted to the format….So please excuse me…
Hope it looks better and easy to navigate… and I totally love the bottom scrolling carousel that displays my books… I freaking went crazy when I saw my covers there 😀
God, I’m so so happy to receive this notification from you di. I’m glad to be a part of this fandom for I met you through it. Everything about you, your work, your way of dealing with stressful situations just amazes me on another level that I look forward to learning a lot trust me when I say this a lot of good things from you. Not only your stories but also these random notes and messages have a message for me hidden inside. I do not know if I’m making sense or not but we truly have a deeper connection despite being strangers. It’s good that you took your own time to introspect things. Well, for me life has been on a down hill but your stories especially TT have been my solace. I die to read an update always. I hope you are not planning to end it soon because I seriously won’t be able to digest that. Waise hi di, the entire off cream drama is giving me a headache. Okzz, enough of my rant. You take care. Lots of love. ❤️ And please update soon m

I always tell that to everyone – In entertainment industry, Off Screen drama is as scripted as on screen stuff. All that reaches you, even newspaper are sold and paid for… every interview, even the highest paid bollywood celebs is scripted… whatever reaches your eye is a business worth crores. No one is callous enough in this day and age to let their business suffer because of emotions.
So, please… never let off screen drama get to you. That’s what they want – to create buzz… and never fall for stuff that is so obvious forced in your face… same goes for fan-wars and verbal jingoism. If you are letting yourself be affected by it, you are too innocent.
Don’t waste your time and energy. It’s not worth it.
Having said so much, I hope it didn’t make you yawn 🙂
Thank you for loving Tangles & Ties. No, I am not ending it anytime soon 🙂 🙂
Thnx for the note. I missed writing comnents and communicating with you. Not getting anything from you means something bad happened with you. It means you are gone MIA.
Please don’t stop writing. You are a very very good writer I have come accross. I eagerly wait for your updates. Glad that you posted all stories and we can read anytime.
I missed you too Madhuri.
It’s like there are some people who are always there and when you don’t talk to them, something is missing in the day.
You are one of them. Stay blessed.
Lots of love…
Hey dii!! Missed u alot these days.. nd i really really missed the comment section as i love to share my views about the chapter but your reason for disabling the comment section is also understandable as sometimes we might need a break from all the chaos nd clear our mind but now u r back😁now I’ll be able to share my views for all the updates which u’ll give to us yeyy🤩
Nd yes also u r posting all the stories here I can’t even say how much happy i m😍also can’t wait for twisted minds to be edited perfectly nd read it again i really really missed that story😭❤️
Nd we are always there for u in any situation❤️lots of love dii😘
Love you soooo much!!!
I know you are always there to be with me and have always supported me in every phase.
I look forward to your comments on every update and track of the story and you are a very important part of my writing journey. Thanks
I know I’m not a person who comments on each post.. but must say that I just love to read ur stories.. they just make my day.. I keep wondering hw do you even manage to write so beautifully… I just love all ur stories which I’ve read.. though I didn’t read twisted minds n fire n ice.. eagerly waiting for u to post them.. so that I can binge on them… Inna saara pyaar to you🥰
I didn’t notice that I had to add my name … Sorry about that…
Love sent right back.
Thank you for reading my stories and liking them 🙂
I respect whatever you do….me time is more important for every person….you have taken a wonderful step…wish I could do this …. salute
It was nothing special dear …
I think we can all do what we want to do, with just a small effort and a decision to do it :))
And it works wonders!
I think that was a very necessary step for you..
A writer needs growth in every step they took.
But I am so happy that you activated like and comment section😃.
I love to read comments too😊
I feel i can connect with other p.o.v
Loved your all work as always.
Would love to read more..
Keep it up.
Waiting for update..
You organised your blog very well .
Now it is more easier for us
Thank you ..
Thank you so much…
For getting my POV, for being there for me, and for liking my work.
Glad you liked the new layout of the blog. I wanted to make it easier for everyone 🙂
Loving your work very much… in love with them!!!
Keep doing good work.!!
Thank you Sonal.
I r amazing writer and I like ur all stories….I don’t have words to describe my feelings when I read ur stories. .but yes you are amazing writer and I will pray that may God bless u with the best. I love you di, lots of love
Thank you dear.
I wish the same for you. May God bless you with the best.
Love you back 🙂
I missed this place so muchh and thankyou so muchh for this🤗🤗
Yess Finallyy feel like missed my 2nd home🤗
The only thing I missed the most was being in touch with my genuine, loyal readers.
It’s like my second home today 🙂
Thanks for enabling it. I like read to comments rather than commenting.
That is what a lot of readers wrote to me that they read comments as an extension of updates and love to understand others point of view.
I couldn’t debate on that :))
Hey that’s amazing we will be able to communicate over the stories waiting for the next chapter of tangle and ties
I’m thrilled to be back to communicating too 🙂
I am glad that you took that step….
Your stories made my day….
I am eagerly waiting for the another section you are planning to open…
Lots of love …
I will start posting in that section soon
Lots of love to you dear writer. U are trying to achieve the toughest part of writer i.e surviving without getting a single appraisal. Actually appraisal r the motivation for u and u r not taking motivation from others rather u r self motivating urself. That a unbelievable job
I am still trying to achieve it and I think I managed well as when you know that comment section is disabled, you don’t even check the notifications as they are none.
Thanks for being with me through all the craziness I do :))
Awesome….Smart move di….I know you will reach heights..Then remember this little fan of yours always…Love you loads….Striking resemblance of you n your characters you write… Appreciate it….Finally thku for opening the comment box again…
I don’t have fans… I have friends… and you are one of my sweetest, closest friends.
PS: I am nothing like any character written by me. I just strive towards becoming like one of them.
Awwww that was so sweet….thku for being with us always…
Its understandable. And we’re always there for you. And all these magical stories made our day , basically morphed our day into a good one😌❤️So Thankyou So Much for all the efforts you put.
Thank you for being there. It means so much when you have people backing you.
It gives you enough courage to do anything you want to do without being judged.
lots of love 🙂
Thank you soo much Di.. For keeping comment section.. And we understand every single thought of yours and one thing we surely know that we will be their for you always.. ❤
I know that sweetheart. Every message of yours and every comment on every update, without failing, even if you couldn’t comment here, reached me and touched me.
I’m blessed to have people like you in my life.
Lots of love to you 🙂
Honestly Di.. your every reason is justified.. But I keep nagging you about the things which you were avoiding.. I kept troubling you..
But I am like that whatever I feel I don’t keep it with myself and I just say it ..but it’s only for the one who is really important for me..
And I really love every single update of yours I struggle to read your update even I stool time to comment for your update.. And I love doing that…
A big hug to you for doing that. I was never troubled by you as you were always there with positive words.
Love the way you are… stay that way !!!
Thank you Di for understanding me.. 🤗
Love you.. Stay blessed 💫
Finally you keep the comment section and your stories are simply superb and I love to read again and again
Thank you dear!
I’m here for all of you 🙂
Finally 😭😭 i missed this so muchb and thankyouu
I missed commenting in T&T , beautiful beautiful updates and I so wanted to comment but no prob we understand your POV ( coz In busy life it may be hectic to reply and think about comments ). My life is same, regular office work nothing new so boring ehhh.. I am really happy for you that you are posting all of your stories yayiieeee… I recommended T&T to my friends now they are willing to read all of your stories. Credits : Your amazing writing. Keep up the good work and keep rocking. Lots of love.
Thank you for understanding my POV… and thank you for being patient enough for me to be back to interacting.
Thanks for liking T & T updates. I really wanted to know if people are liking them but I had decided that I won’t enable comments unless I finish a big chunk of my editing. That trick worked and I’m very near to finishing the book.
Also… love you for promoting my book :)))
You get a virtual hug for that :*
How many thanks !!!!!!!!! virtual hugs anytime. We like the updates ? we totally loved it because we always wanted Manik and nandini spending time together and you are giving more spl moments. It is just the start I mean its just 2nd day of this trip. I am way more excited. Are you publishing Twisted minds like a proper book ?
Yeah… it’s the second day of the trip. More to come ahead.
Yes, I have been editing Twisted Minds to publish as a proper book.
I will start posting about it in my next section which I plan to write about writing and publishing.
I never know u had stomach ache, hope you are fine now. Take care of your health di.. Take proper rest.
It was day before yesterday. Due to excessive heat and infected food, I had developed gastro-enteritis. It lasts for a day. I’m fine now. Thanks dear!
Oh okay. Eat healthy foods and take proper care. Please dont ignore your health.
Yeah… I’m doing that… thanks 🤗🤗
Hi Di we missed you so much!!!!!!! those reasons why you have disabled comment section and staying out of sns is understandable and to be frank indeed it is a trap…. We are happy for you that you were avoiding things which you dont want to get into and concentrate on things which is more important and I am really impressed and proud of you coz you have really good ” self control “. Coz in our cases we may avoid sns or as you said expecting for comments from regular readers for one day after that we cant lol… I should learn this from you this self control is very important.
I missed you too… A LOT!
In fact, you were one of those who mailed me because you wanted to comment. It was such a heartwarming feeling.
As per, ‘self control’ … My father always says that there is nothing special about special traits like punctuality, discipline, patience or self control… the day you decide it … you have it!!
I’m still learning though… a long way to go :))))
