Hello everyone,

As I posted yesterday, life is getting a bit hectic and mostly chaotic at my end.

My area is in the red zone of Covid-19 and my own society is in containment area with a curfew being monitored by 2 policemen since there was one Covid-19 positive case in my lane. We are safe and all is well. But that means, no household help, neither for cooking nor for cleaning and I have no staff.

Due to lockdown and coronavirus spread, my clinics are shut. Last year, when I was going through a tough phase, it included financial losses and one clinic had to be closed. Now, another clinic is closed too.
For once, I didn’t know what to do. But then, my patients began to insist on consultations, and I had to shift my entire work to the internet. Online consultations need different management, set-up, payment procedure, and safety measures. Previously, it was started as Whatsapp consultations to follow-up patients on a small scale. But now, I had to take it to the web.

Then, my book ‘The Masquerade’ was supposed to release in April. But it got delayed due to lockdown. Publishers, printers, Amazon delivery, all were closed. Now that the publishers are working from home, there were few glitches that I spotted right before it went into the print. Now, I have to read it word by word, 412 pages, 1,24,000 words to ensure that such mistakes are rectified.

Also, a lot of things were happening on the personal front. There have been emotional ups and downs. Kids need to be given time, made to study & entertained, while they are at home for so long.

Things have been piling up on me from every possible side.

Writing is my only respite from this chaos. And so I continue to write, in as much time that I get. As it distracts me, it keeps me happy, and it is my escape mechanism. But I don’t want to rush my stories or do away with them ‘somehow’… I love them and I love writing them and that is why you like them too. I can’t do any injustice to them.

Give me one week.

I will fix my clinic websites’ work, streamline consultations, fix ‘The Masquerade’, and finish most of the extra work. I will start posting on 1st June 2020 with a new schedule – Regular, definitely.

In the meantime, everyday morning, I will post 2-3 chapters of Fire and Ice, on my manan fics blog, as that story is already written. And I don’t have to write new chapters.

I know you will understand ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’–
Like you always do… See you next week, with Beyond Every Border on June 1st and then Love, Lies, Etc. next, probably on June 3rd.

Stay safe. Take all precautions.

Take care. Love you all. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

M.

……………………………………………

PS – I haven’t replied to a LOT of Insta messages, wattpad inbox msgs, personal messages on different blogs, emails etc… I couldn’t. I’m sorry. I didn’t have the time to reply to each. But rest assured. I read all of them.

I love you all ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

      This lockdown has taken all the positivity of the world. Everyday news are like nightmares. Migrants death in train and busses and roads..I unable to see a ending to this pandemic.

      Stay safe. Take care…

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Take care… You are a superwoman I tell…
      I couldn’t have managed these all at one time…
      I know how it feels to be in containment area … But it’s more troublesome from our health care workers side… I know it well because we are doing it since 2months… As I am working as a medical officer in municipal corporation…
      Things are getting hectic and chaotic from our front too, but your stories are really really go to go place to relieve stress…
      But take your time and write beautiful chapters afterwords… Waiting for BB

      Hey Mamta taking care of yourself and your family should be your priority. We are fine with you not posting updates for some time. We have Fire and Ice to read. Please become a little selfish, we wonโ€™t mind

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      It makes me sad that you’re loaded with so much work!! Don’t stress yourself much. xx
      Take care di,, everything else can wait. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Take your time and don’t stress di. Solve one at a time, there is no need to rush because we have all the time in the world. And we will not go anywhere else because no one weaves magic like you do. I know the stress of being in a red zone because I am also from there and hopefully my area has not become a containment zone. Somewhere down the line, there will a bright rainbow waiting for us to light up our world. Take care di. Stay safe! Love you….โคโคโค

      Hai di,

      You just take care of your self and the things piling up on you.. Don’t worry… Stories can wait…. We are gonna miss them for sure but it’s okay… ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฅฐ
      And thank you so much taking out time and writing such a big note so that we don’t feel left out… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
      totally understandable that you might have been having a hard time taking care of everything single handedly…households, your profession, kids..
      I know how it is to balance your work and home..though i am with my family and working from home now, office works have got doubled..and there are no time to take care of even myself…din raat bas kaam…kabhi bhi mail aa sakta hai๐Ÿ˜ค

      So i was saying don’t feel sorry, we love you and love reading your stories..๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•but will wait to you get time…. โค

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Thank you for writing… I totally understand that maybe it’s a lockdown and we are at home but it doesn’t reduce our work. This corono has actually increased our work both professional and home. And we don’t have any help as we have earlier. So I think it’s quite okay to be struggling and juggling professionally and at home front.
      Things will change with time… atleast we can hope so. But it can be made beautiful and relaxing through your stories.
      So I will wait till you are comfortable in writing and sending update regularly.
      Thanks again

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Di we can wait for your stories. As this is a tough time even to children have your quality family time now which we will miss when children start going to their schools. Also being a doctor you are now more responsible to take care of patients too. This hobby can wait for some days until you have your time and we will wait for our favourite writer. Take care Di. Stay safe.

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      I’ll tell you something di, RELAX. Take your time and relax. And donot make a time table for your stories. I wanted to tell this to you the last time when you made one but I thought maybe this time in lockdown you have time, hence the time table.

      But kids, work, home, and and writing handling all together is no joke you’re ought to get tired and problems will come. So update whenever you can and you very well know we’re greedy for your stories, we not going anywhere. We may crib that we missing you but thats okay, we’re humans and will do that. But when we get time table it builds expectations, that arey aaj nahi aaya. So just a suggestion just drop a note if you happen to be busy for 3 days or more. We’ll know and wait for you. Thankss!
