It is exactly a month today since we got Sam home. His second and hopefully his forever home. He is a delightfully adorable eight-year-old Pug. I wonder why is it that we hesitate to adopt older pets. I know it’s easier to bond with younger animals and they are much more active and naughtier than the older ones. But adopting a senior dog has a charm of its own. They are just as affectionate as young puppies, and once you win their trust, the bond is much more stronger and mature than ever.
Welcome Home Sam!
Before You’re Not Little Anymore
In the summer of 2017, I came up with the idea of writing letters to my son on my blog, to help him cope with various emotions and situations that most of us go through as a part of growing up. Those letters became the foundation of my first solo book ‘Before You’re Not Little Anymore.’ Finally, the book is ready for release. I will share the details of the launch shortly. Before You’re Not Little Anymore is available for pre-launch booking on my Facebook author page. It will be available for sale in India to start with, on Amazon, the StoryMirror website and at major bookstores in select cities after the launch. The Kindle edition will be available in the following days.
If you’re wondering why you should be buying this book, let me tell you why. Before You’re Not Little Anymore, elaborates on life skills and practical tips that are helpful for every individual irrespective of their age or gender. So whether you’re a parent, child or neither any of them, either way, this book is probably worth a read!

How I lost 5 Kilos of Weight in 8 Days
It’s been a couple of months since I have been living an unhealthy lifestyle. Zero exercise coupled with binging on lots of comfort food has played havoc with my weight. Along with it came lethargy and a certain low that I cannot really describe in words. It didn’t feel right. I had to do something…
