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 future…

So, I’m back.

A lot of people ask me if things have improved on my side. I would say that they are in a state of transition. Not necessarily better but I’ve learnt to live with the situation and work harder to make it better on my side.

I may not be able to highlight more details as it is an open platform but I’ve taken some bad decisions in life which cost me dearly. I had suffered losses of huge amounts, both monetary and personal, trusted wrong people, lost relationships and it led to personal tractions at various levels.

Things improve, you learn more, learn to fight back and find ways to survive… I’m glad, I did. I will write about all my lessons in another big post.

For now, it is a happy, holiday time and change of year… so let’s focus only on positives…

  1. I’ve made the blog simpler. Now you can see all my works in one place. Just click on the icon and it will take you to the concerned page.
  2. The latest posts are kept at the top…so all those who said that they missed my recent posts can now check which posts they missed and catch up on all recent updates, newest first.
  3. I’ve added a new platform… ‘The Guiding Light – a project’… it is for everyone and anyone who needs moral support in life. I did…!!! And I know what it means to have someone listen to you. I’ve been talking to a lot of readers who had issues and without naming them, I want to put out some very very common problems that we might have… I hope someone who is not able to open up will be benefitted…It’s a huge work and I can’t do it alone… we are all together… So, in case any of you want to contribute to that project by writing about any incident of your life that broke you, almost killed you and was too tough to bear, please share how you overcome it and what helped you through it…It might help a lot of people out there…
    I will add mine… my experiences… my lessons… my two cents…
  4. AND… The Biggest News for the Last… The Masquerade – My Debut Novel is now finally ready after a year of hard work, multiple proof checks… 5 full-fledged revisions, re-writings, edits, deletions and what not… It will now go for cover design and formatting… I really really hope it crosses all technical stages soon… I cannot wait to share with you all that I went through while writing this novel… It is my first literary baby who is going to see the book form and I can’t be less than a proud mom… I want to write EVERYTHING that I went through during this book… I will regularly update my experiences under the category ‘The Masquerade’,  it is on the front page of this blog. I will update it every 2-3 days as there is so much to write and share 🙂
  5. I’m taking one book at a time – So, Tangles and Ties will be updated first… three days a week – Tuesday – Thursday – Saturday…
    Beyond Every Border will follow after that.

So, Like I said – I had a lot of projects to do in the last few months before I started writing again – This is what I did…

  1. I added more peels and lasers to my clinic
  2. I joined a few medical courses + a fellowship – I’ll tell more about them after I finish them as no use talking before it is done 🙂
  3. I was not sure if I’ll stay in the same city or I might have to change cities and leave the clinic so I wanted to brace myself with added certificates and courses for more exposure in Clinical Research and Writing –

    So, I also joined a course –
    ‘Writing in Sciences’ by Stanford Online Medical University and finished it with a Statement of Accomplishment with 100% score and Distinction. It is an online course, available for free and adds a lot to your knowledge if you are interested in writing about scientific publications.

    I started it on 15th October 2019 and finished it on December 11, 2019

    It’s here –

Oh, by the way – Manita is my pen name which I use for writing fiction for the past 10 years and I intend to continue with it in my novels as well… coz I love it…

… Mamta is my parent-given name and for my clinical practice, official usage.

4. I also finished ‘The Masquerade’ which was giving me a tough time for so many months… FINALLY… It’s Done 😀 😀

I’ll write more about it in coming posts… Do let me know how these last few months passed for you… for me, it was a tough, depressing, distressing time with so much in hand that I couldn’t take time out to be upset… so I took on more pile of work, courses, jobs, editing assignments, increased clinic hours and a target to complete the book that it didn’t give me time to reflect on how sad I had been if I didn’t have enough work.

That’s finally my mantra that I have realised and wanted to share with you that the more we are busy and involved in things around us, the less time we have to feel bad about a certain situation.

Let me know what is your trick to help yourself out of any sticky situation.

As we finally say goodbye to 2019 – let’s hope to see struggles, problems, pain, and stress to leave soon.

Lots and lots of love to you all… I feel so much at peace when I talk to you…

I’ll forever be grateful to each one of you for following me here and being there for me 🙂

Stay blessed.

      Ahh finally got time to comment on this post😅
      dii i m so proud you❤️the way u must have handled your life’s toughest situation is really commendable:)also u have done a course when u were so busy but still u took the time to do it anyway and got full score😍yeyy🤩and u know it’s a good thing when situations are tough u should be busy so that your mind can be occupied…
      Also i m very excited for your first book to be published yeyy💃🏻💃🏻it will be a hit dii for sure🤩
      And i m surprised with your real name😁but i would love to call u manita dii only hope that’s ok😋
      For me this year was okayish kinda…
      Lost my best frnd of 11 years though we used to fight alot for little things and used to stop talking for so many days and sometimes months but everytime we solved it and be back than before but this time it didn’t happen:( and like all of a sudden we lost contact and now we are just in each other’s contact list and see each other’s insta stories..and wishes birthdays that’s it:) though it was my life’s toughest decision to move on from that frndship and if I wanted i could have mend the things but I realised that if i did that i would have hurt myself again as she has changed alot bcz of many things and some people specially so i used to get hurt alot bcz of her behaviour sometimes but as a bestie I ignore it all the time but sometimes your limit crosses so i had to take a decision to let her go and it hurted alot to me like a lovers type break up but with time i moved on but sometimes u know u misses that person who was a big part of your school life, from half childhood to adulthood so yes..but again it’s life we have to accept certain things…
      but yes i have 2 best frnds who are my family so that’s okay life is happening with me in frnds topic😅
      And yes we got a new family member among us-my to be bhabhi😍
      Also i started learning contemporary dance also😁which was my dream to learn and my bro fulfilled it🙈and i also performed on the stage after soo many years and kinda it’s a first proper performance on the stage so yeyy😍it was so thrilling, so exciting, so much of nervousness but finally did it and it was super💃🏻i will share the video with you dii:)
      In August u know what happened and it has taken a toll on me tbh as i m a very emotional person plus an over thinker but i m trying and to some extent i am successful to get rid of that feeling..as time passes all the things get good so yes it’s fine now…
      Also yesterday i got a news of my little 4 years old niece passing away😣it’s like a shocking or a numb feeling idk how to describe it..such a cuteness ka pitara she was like she talked with everyone made bond with all the people who met her…and from her birth i was so attached with her..
      and by this incident i realised that life is so so uncertain like anytime anything can happen and we can’t just control it sometimes:( but it’s life we have to accept it and move on…

      I guess i wrote too much dii🙈hope you won’t get bored by my rant🙈

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Hey Manita! Glad to see you back! Wish you and your family a happy new year and a new decade filled with love, happiness, peace and calm!

      So much looking forward for ‘The Guiding Light’ – many of us have been through some tough times – career, education, love, family, just fighting struggling to be ourself, motivate ourself, to stand tall and high. Every chapter in our life, a failure, a success, a heartbreak, a loss is a lesson that we learnt and still learn. Everything and everyone teaches us something. Not everyone has someone to talk to or hear them…I am happy that you are willing to make an effort to help them! Good Luck!

      I am happy that you fought and stood tall against all odds!

      Best Regards!!!

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Right, you learn you lesson by your failures, then only one can succeed in his/her career/area. Sad to know that you have incurred monetary loss. It always hurts to see our hard earned money go into bin just like that. But don’t worry you will earn back and be happy in near future.
      Congrats once again for your book The Masquerade is publishing now.
      Congrats for your new courses too.
      I wish you that you will shine and rise high in this new year and this new year will give you the needed happiness and lots of love.

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        Thank you for the wishes Madhuri. I wish you a very Happy New Year too and pray for your health and happiness.
        I agree, monetary losses kill a lot of your zeal. They burden you down as they take away a lot of your hard work of years. But like you said, I will try to earn it back and cover them 🙂

      Dii…..!!! So happy to see you back with a bang! To be frank we all are a work in progress who are tested by life… so its okay to face bad times, rise up stronger and learn from them. Mine has also been rocky….some happy moments some sad overall good life. It is so lovely of you to start a initiative for hearing people out and be a guiding light to them. And thank you for also letting us an opportunity. And a big big congratulations on our book diii….eagerly waiting for it to get published and to read it….. Lots of love and luck to you dii….
      P.S. What happened to the beta readers??

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        It feels sooo good to you here..people who have come with me for so long…
        My heart swells with pride when I hear how you dealt with the rocky phases of your life. So true – we are all work in progress..

        The guiding light is NOT me…. it is ray of light that we find INSIDE us…and is there in each of us…everyone else can just help…

        And about beta readers? It is almost an year and I thought people have forgotten/ moved on/ busy etc… I would love to have beta readers if they are wiling to read my book before it gets published… I’ll announce today…

        Thank you 🙂

      Last few months had been same for me as well. So many things happened. But I’m doing great.

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      New platform ” Guiding light” u know na u are my inspiration.. U are giving so many reasons to admire nd adore U❤❤ u are an angel for young ppl out here like us who struggle to open up things and get that moral support. Love u so much for coming up with this idea Di. Be the same and stay blessed 💖💖 loads and loads of love and admiration coming ur way 💕💞💗💖

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        *Thoda jyada ho gaya…*
        I don’t deserve all the praises… I am just trying to streamline all that I have been doing for years and placing them at one place. I am no angel… I am a human who would love to see every single person discover their own angel INSIDE them…that’s your own guiding light 😀

        Thank you and love you

        • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

          ” every single person discover their own angel inside them ” See that’s how an inspiring person speaks and u say that you don’t deserve praises!! This kind and humble words makes me admire u more.. PS : Thoda jyada nahiiii ho gaya hahah ..

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Coming to the book” the Masquerade” I am the most excited person to read this book 😍😍😭 i was waiting for this since ages!! Finally yayieeee it’s coming in book form wohooooo 💖😍😍😍💃💃💃💃💃💃

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      I am glad and happy to read that you are better now and things have settled down for u. We missed ur interactions with us and this lesson ” Keep urself busy when situation is tough ” I am definitely going to implement it.. And yes this does keep our mind occupied in getting rid of things which pull us down be it mentally or physically. U took time to come out of this but the important part is u are better not just for the sake of it. U truely feel better and out of that phase that’s important ❤❣

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      Omggg man I, I’m sooo glad you feel like you’re in a better place in life big personally and professionally everyone goes through struggles in life but it all depends on how we cope with it, we can never get rid of troubles in life but at least we can try and ease them slowly one at a time, trust me I’ve been through alot just like every single person here, but at least we learn from mistakes and try and correct them they are so many people out here on the world that are unable to do that because they don’t have support around them or they are not that strong unfortunately ( ANYONE get rid of hardships, but you just need to try), so always cherish the people that are trying to help you without wanting anything in return as well as BELIEVE in yourself.

      I’m sooo proud of everything you have achieved from following you the last god knows how many years (8/9 years I think, god it’s been long) you have come such a long way and all that you have achieved I’m so glad to have been there in your journey, and continue to be there I know sometimes it can be hard to always read comment and message as life takes over but I’m always gonna he there and you know it!!!

      Love always

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        Aasma dear, you have no idea how blessed I feel when I look at your posts.
        There have been people who have stayed with me since I started writing online — it was 2010… so, yes, 9 years completed…
        And you know, when I now look back, I remember sharing with you the job changes, city shiftings, second baby and all those things that followed… I’m so glad to have you by my side…
        I promise, I will be there too…. with you… whenever you need me…
        Who says internet friendships are not real… for me they are my closest.
        Biggg Huggssss!!
