Mundane Life–A Poem and an Interview!


Here’s some mundane inspiration–

We run around everyday busying ourselves with mundane routine

Getting the kids off to school, soccer practice, summer camp

Going to work, coming home and working again

Getting dinner ready, walking the dog

Worrying about the future, finances

We continue doing the same old mundane things

We fear to stop and think

Beyond the mundaneness

We continue like busy little ants until

Something steps on us with a giant shoe

And life is over as we know it

If we survive we become philosophers

To give others mundane wisdom

That no one cares to hear

Since they are so busy living their mundane lives


Hi friends!

Occasionally I come across someone who is not so mundane and is able to delve beneath the surface. Sid Sharma is one such person. He interviewed me recently for Asian American News and I think he got me right!

My Interview With Indian Moms Connect

Accidental Wife Book Cover

Recently I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Indian Moms Connect–‘an authentic space for Moms by Moms’ on the web.

I talked to Aarti who had read and reviewed my book ‘The Accidental Wife’ earlier — read it here. 

I was really flattered that she placed it on par with one of her favorite books- ‘The Notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks and also that she thought Ryan Gosling would be a good choice for playing Dr. Rihaan Mehta if the book would see the big screen–sigh (dreams)

We had a great conversation- I read my favorite passage from the book and talked about what inspired me to write it among other things. Click on the link below to listen.

My Romance Radio Network Interview

Inconvenient relations C

It’s here! Me on my book in my own words 🙂

Desmond Haas, an author himself, honored me with an interview for his Romance Radio Network. He read the book and loved it (surprise, surprise!) and asked some very insightful questions which I tried to respond to the best I could. The audio quality is not the best (I was on my cell) but fairly intelligible. Please give a listen. This interview was for the first edition which was titled ‘An Incurable Insanity’. The revised edition is titled ‘Inconvenient Relations.’



The Mahatma- Let’s remember him on his 144th Birthday.


Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

(October 2, 1869- January 30, 1948)

Employing non violent civil disobedience, Gandhi or Bapu as he is fondly called, led India to independence from the all powerful British.

He inspired civil rights movements all across the world.

A champion of women and the poor, he put an end to untouchability and achieved Swaraj or self rule.

A few quotes:

‘Be the change that you wish to see in the world.’

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”

“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.” 

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” 

“God has no religion.” 

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” 

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”

“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” 

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
