I know how to mark a #fullstop. I also know when to break a #dialogue with a #comma. I even understand the #semicolon in #life. But what I love the most is the #exclamation marks! They #surprise me most times. Leave me shocked at others. Make me #smile often. And turn me into #dramaqueen always! I love the #drama in #life!

When we realise what #love is truly about. We stop making a fuss about it. We watch it weave into our #everyday life.

Strings of #marigolds on window panes. A home lit up in #fairy #lights. Faint aroma of #henna. #Sweet boxes getting empty. #Hugs being exchanged between old and new, known and unknown. Impromptu poor #dance performances. Many, many cups of tea. Rides to and fro the salons. Fabrics, so soft. Shine of jewels. Homemade #food...no one talking calories! #Dhobi getting far more importance than the #groom. Midnight meals and stories. Moments finding their space in camera phones. #Cousins, #friends, aunts, uncles...breathing as one. #Blessings of the elders, giggles of the young. When you forgive and forget the past, and make way for the new. No doorbells, required. The #wedding home, where there is space for everyone. Opening up your arms to welcome a #relation, so new. Flipping up the #family #album to narrate and remember tales of the days gone by. Chants from the pooja. Promises to keep, cherish. Echo of laughs, conversations. And then a #goodbye. Until, the next #family wedding. When once more, our #hearts will be filled with #love, #warmth, and #happiness. For, it's not everyday that life gets painted with such #blessings.

Sometimes you are #hurt & #shaken. And there is no one around to hold your #hand.  And then you find #courage in #words. Words that don't complain when your #tears leave them moist. Words that keep your #dark #secrets safe when you hide them in brackets. Words that understand that sometimes you are left with just no choice. Words that reflect the image of a #heart that has forgotten how to #smile. Because when no one else listens, words listen. Talk to them, often.

#Daughters. #Idolise them, take #pride in them, #pamper them, #adore them, worry about them, call them #feminists or label them as #rebels. But, you can’t stop loving them.

#Writing is a #lonely #job. It is not how it looks from the outside — sitting on a #desk in a #cosy corner of a #room with a hot cup of #coffee. It’s not so — my coffee often gets cold even before I reach for it, and I’ve experienced anxiety even as I’ve sat in my favourite spot. In fact, some don’t even think of writing as a job. Writing is about closing the #doors to the outside world to create one of yours. The people who live in this world are #strangers, who ask all kind of questions and suffer from many types of quirks. They make you uncomfortable at every step and with every #word. But, you need the words, so you learn how to be patient and kind. You learn to forgive yourself for the time spent staring at the screen or on the sheet of the paper. Writing is about getting nervous when you don’t have an answer. It’s about restless nights when the characters refuse to talk back or when they refuse to stay quiet. It’s about being locked up inside four walls until you reach The End i.e. if there is one. This job is not fancy, very few writers will tell you so. It’s a mix of anxiety and insomnia, just as it is about smiles and sighs. #TheTreesToldMeSo has been all this and more; and now it is yours.

I was #dreaming again
You said you believed in them
I made you a part of them
And just like that I fell in #love…

No matter how old you #growup always share your pain with your #parents. They are the ones who tucked you in bed when the #weather got rough. It #hurts them loads when you don't tell them you are facing #rough times. They are #stronger than you know.

We all have different definitions of #love. We had ours too. Each #morning he sought his in mine and I sought mine in his. And that was our love story. We both wrote ours except that we wrote it on the same page.

How would we make up for the #time lost? Would we hum the #old #tune? Would we stare at the #starlit #sky? Would we go back to all the #places we’d once been? Would we talk about the old tales? Or would we just #hug and watch the #time melt away?

Where lies the #faith? On the streets, under the #trees in #newdelhi, #india stand these idols of #gods #goddess. Does clay, thread, tikka...define faith? It has a different meaning for each of us. After all, #faith is #personal, between me and my god.

Do you strike #conversations with strangers? At the #bar, on a #walk, at an #airport #waitingarea, in a #coffeeshop.

Anything new in #life be it #shoes, #people or #emotions will feel lost in 'your' #space if you don't make them feel wanted. #Love those shoes, treasure those emotions and love back the people!

It's scary to share your #words with everyone. It's like letting a #stranger watch you being #vulnerable. But is scarier to hold the #love, #pain, #passion, #greed, #sin...too close to yourself. My words are now yours. Embrace them with #tenderness.

I am a story teller in search of my #favourite #word. My current favourite word is Meraki (Greek): To do something with #soul, #creativity or #love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work. What is your favourite word?

#Love. Short-lived or #eternal, it allows you to #romance it the way you desire; there's also the free #choice between #frivolity and #sincerity.

Under this straight-trunked, long-leafed tree in my #neighbourhood in #NewDelhi sits a #florist. He sells single #flower stems and bunches too. I watch men, women, kids, and young adults drop by at this spot. They're always in a hurry to pick a fresh posy or fragrant bud for themselves or a loved one. Just like that, #love blooms under this tree.

It's only the #honest #words that have the power to bring a #change, touch #hearts, and awaken #minds. I can only hope we never lose #faith in words. Why did the #trees speak to me? Why did characters whose lives had been touched by the trees decide to #confide in me? I am yet to know. All I know is that these #tales are now as much #yours as #mine.

As a #writer you have to be many things. You have to be strong enough to not get moist eyed in times of #loss. You have to be weak enough to fall in #love with the wrong one. You have to be silly enough to fall in the trap and make #mistakes. You have to be  #optimistic enough to cry all #night, yet wake up with a #smile each #morning. You have to be giving enough to accept the strange and different. You have to be forgiving enough to look into the mirror each day. You have to be angry enough to break the glass, hurt the hand and pick up the broken shard again. You have to be happy enough to share the daily cup of coffee with someone you chose. You have to be courageous enough to swim in dark waters. You have to be #beautiful enough to let the zits grow. You have to be desperate at times, to let someone #hug you, hold you. You have to be confused enough to pull away when to push. You have to be far enough to know what walking a mile means. You have to be close enough to sense the distance. You have to be monochrome enough to note down the day the #rainbow shows. You have to be small enough to absorb in the heights. But most importantly you have to know when to pause enough. #Pause and let your character think for itself. Pause and let your character listen to its voice. Pause and let your character question itself. Pause and let your character feel for itself. 
You have to know when to pause. It's these pauses that led to #thetreestoldmeso. Each time, I get a note from a reader saying the book made them pause and question-wonder, I think to myself - I must have paused when I needed to.

Short #stories are magical. They are #narratives of #emotions, #lives, #heroes... Told quickly, smartly. Ever felt you got close to someone over a #quick #cupofcoffee or a rushed #drink at the #bar? That is what reading and writing #shortstories does to your heart! Pic courtesy @niyogi_books!

On a #rainyday, I saw this tiny leaf. It taught me something. You are never #alone. There is always someone helping you stay #afloat. Be patient, open your arms to the love, warmth.

Don't some sights just fill up your #heart with #love? This #tree in my #neighbourhood #park back #home in #newdelhiindia makes up for a lovely sight. I can't guess it's #age by looking at the rings on its #trunk, but I know it brightens up my day to see it glow when the #sunrays fall on it or when the #rain lends it a fresh hue. Have you ever looked at a tree closely?

#love is all around you, in fleeting moments that you miss, overlook...in the eternal ones that get etched in memory. Look around, your #oldfashioned love awaits.

There is a #story behind the #book and the #silver #ring, latter made using a one #rupee coin and a few ghungroos. It makes a #lovely # sound, each time I write...Incidentally, I picked this one the same day I picked a collection of short stories, Half a Rupee Stories, by #Gulzar. Just like that I created my own little memory with one of the greatest storytellers we will ever know! He says in the #foreword - "Of course, there are various #subjects on which I have written. But then life is not lived in monotone." #happy #birthday to the man, who has filled our lives with different shades of life. Do you have a #favourite #gulzar read? Or do you find it hard to pick just one!

There will be #moments when you will wish to say to someone that on some days you feel #tired of living, remember that person can be me. Likewise, I will come to you when I am tired. Together, we shall sail through.

Such a simple, yet beautiful sight. A vendor selling #rakhis from a makeshift stall set under a #tree in #newdelhi. The #brother-#sister #relationship is unique. It's high on the drama! Growing up years revolve around fights with them — pulling hair, stealing CDs, and spying too! We complain about the other to our parents to win brownie points. But, something does change as we become #adults. Underlying it all is a beautiful #relationship as well. We may never admit to it, but we do love each other.

The trees speak so little, you know.
They spend their entire life meditating
and moving their branches.
Just look at them closely in autumn
as they seek each other out in public places:
only the oldest attempt some conversation,
the ones that share clouds and birds,
but their voice gets lost in the leaves
and so little filters down to us, nothing really.
It's difficult to fill the shortest book
with the thoughts of trees.
Everything in them is vague, fragmented.
Today, for instance, on the way to my house
hearing a black thrush shriek,
the last cry of one who won't reach another summer,
I realized that in his voice a tree was speaking,
one of so many,
but I don't know what to do with this sharp deep sound,
I don't know in what type of script
I could set it down.
- Eugenio Montejo

You don’t have to recognise a #tree by its #leaves or be able to estimate the age of a tree by looking at the rings on the trunk. You don’t have to be an activist or #environmentalist to save the #trees. The trees ask nothing of us, just as we take what it gives us on its own. How can we reciprocate this #love? By sharing #tales. Let’s share our #experiences. One thought, one #sapling at a time.

#Friendships are forged at different places. In #schools, #colleges, offices, trains, neighbourhoods, et al. They are forged for different reasons, too. To inspire, for #love, to #survive, for convenience, et al. Also, it's said that over the years most friendships become circumstantial. However, irrespective of how you become friends, there remains one constant. Each time you introduce one friend to the other, you are asked - 'So, how did you two meet?' And these are the #stories that I love narrating the most.

#listenerofthetrees Feeling called to consolidate rather than compartmentalize. Unify rather than  divide and conquer. It’s an inner movement more than an external one. Last year’s struggles were about that lesson for me. It’s taken several turns, but I now know what happens in my life when I make decisions based on fear and how it feels to NOT do that. It is the difference of feeling whole and feeling a small piece of who I am. May we all hear what nature has to say to us today. 💋 Om Shanti #becourageous #naturespeaks #thetreestoldmeso #unexpectedwisdom

When the #littleone and I planned a #sapling in @newdelhi . Can we make a difference? Yes, one sapling at a time. Something we all made a note of at the launch of #thetreestoldmeso at  lovely green space nurtured by the hands at @swechhaindia.
