Trailer for Aadita

The trailer for my new horror novel 'Aadita' is here!!!!

Holiday Mood

I'm on a holiday at the moment but still busy promoting my new Horror novel 'Aadita' (ebook). Buy! Buy! Buy! (Aadita published by Wings ePress)

I was looking at some photo albums from my childhood and thinking about how I didn't mind having my picture taken at all. Now, I run whenever someone points a phone at me :P
It also got me thinking about how if I had this kind of behavior and opinion when taking those photographs then, I wouldn't have gotten to relive those memories now.
As I sit with those albums, I remember nothing of a particular memory and I am so glad I can see all those people who are no longer in my life just one more time. At that time I may not have thought about how I would never get to spend any time with my grandparents, but I surely do now. How I wish I could travel back in time and spend one day with all of my grandparents. Miss them all! <3

If it weren't for photographs I would have never known that they had held me in their arms or l…

Aadita- what it means

A lot of people have been asking me about what the meaning of the title of my new book ‘Aadita’ is. Well, Aadita is a name of a girl that in Sanskrit means from the beginning. She is the protagonist of my story whose actions influences the life of another character in the book- Raina.
I must admit the character wasn’t initially named Aadita but while working on a title to give my story, I wanted to find something that would reflect the tone of the book. When I found what I was looking for, I loved the name so much that I changed the protagonist’s name.
Aadita had to be thus named because she’s the one who inflicts the curse on her family that traverses to generations until Raina is born and is the only one who possesses the strength to break it. Why is she chosen to break the curse and what is the curse actually- well read the book! The truth behind the curse and Aadita’s real intentions are only revealed in the dramatic and cathartic climax.
 I have to add that it was the most dif…

Behind the story- AADITA

While writing about my new book ‘AADITA’ that has just been released, I started to reminisce about the first story I had written- ‘Repeated Lives’. I don’t know what reminded me of it, but I did start thinking about the joyous experience I had writing Talia’s story in Repeated Lives. She was a girl who had everything, or so she thought. She wasn’t aware of her destiny or how her life was going to change. The things that happened when she relived her life were bound to happen in the previous one, only she didn’t know that. She was living in blissful ignorance that created an illusion of her ideal life. When she relived her life, she had to face harsh truths earlier in her life and realize her powers could affect peoples’ destinies in various ways. The ‘what if I could have done things differently’ was explored in this story and it was a learning experience for me too, although I hadn’t know it then. No matter what, you cannot change your destiny. Aadita is by no means a happy tale…
