The first launch of It's Never Too Late

January 25th, 2014 marked the grand launch of my book It's Never Too Late. It was the first ever launch and I was very excited and little nervous too. But the happiest thing apart from the launch was that, my parents were here with me. Yes! It means they were sitting right in front of me during the entire launch. It was wonderful to see them as I had wished umpteen times for them to attend my first launch during writing my book and when they got plans to come to Bangalore, I was on Cloud 9 since then.

My husband, Sumit and our kid, Ashmit, both were pretty excited too. Sumit had been placing calls to everyone and inviting them to the launch. On the event date, he was furiously taking follow up calls. He was supremely busy in those activities while I could prepare myself for the launch. I wondered how much patience he carries with him as some were being very offensive over the phone on trivial issues and were talking senseless. Anyways, we had to ignore that despite of their talkin…

Life is not picture perfect

This morning juggling with cooking, getting my kid ready for the school and packing all things, I hurriedly took off with him to drop him at the bus point but missed it. I was late by few minutes and there happened another hustle bustle of life. I immediately took an auto and dropped him in his school.

While returning back, I munched on how life has gotten changed since last few days, two days to be precise. Two days ago, I was with my parents and life was even more busier. They were here for around one week and every single day, we were on our feet to visit this place and that place. We were so busy that I, in fact, did not find substantial time to post my launch photos on my official pages. I regretted that but attending my parents seemed to me more important. I am after all a family type person and it comes above everything, even to my writing! I hope you will understand and respect it.

We got to visit many places like Flower Show in Lalbagh, some places in and around Bangalore, T…

It's Never Too Late's grand launch in B'lore

Hi there! I know I have not been stopping by too much at my blog and if I tell you the truth, I regret it a great deal. I miss writing at my blog. The reason I am unable to write here much is the pomposity of the promotion of my book It's Never Too Late. I never knew promoting your work can be such a hectic job. It demands maximum of your energy and time. You give your best but still...you feel like a little more you could do. It means, you never get satisfied unless you get something concrete. Thankfully and fortunately, some good things are lined up and I am excited to share them asap in here...on my dear blog.

So, what has been up to you? Now that January is half way past, have you worked on the resolutions? Or, have you really made any? If things are also lining up in good shape for you, I am glad. Glad that I am not the only soul getting happiness from unexpected resources (and from some expected too).

I am organizing a book launch at Oxford Bookstore in Leela Palace (Bangal…

For the mother's love

This mornin' started with a rather rough unappetizing note. Last night I said something to my son right before sleeping and no sooner I said it, I realized saying it was an utter mistake. The moment I realized my mistake, I grimaced because now I had to apologize for my thing. Not because I wasn't genuinely guilty but parents sometimes delve too much in I-am-so-right attitude. But I said sorry to him not once but several times but the damage was done already. He was seriously angry with me and when he gets angry, heaven can only save me. My own kid starts to shout, yell at me, crying at the same time, looking away from me and never ever let me touch him. In short, he invited hell on me. so he got angry and I felt really bad. I really wanted to make it up for him but as I am so much absolutely busy in promoting my book these days that I hardly get proper rest. My back was aching continuously yesterday. I also do not stay in my best mood these days {Thanks to Sumit for enduring…

Journey towards It's Never Too Late...by Priyanka Baranwal

Has it ever happened with you - Fulfilling someone else's dream making you not happy but happier? It sure has happened with me. On the release of It's Never Too Late, my debut novel, I have fulfilled my husband's dream and that is what making me happier every day.

The journey towards my debut novel It's Never Too Late...to win the battle against your biggest enemy : Fear, this particular journey has been one of a kind to me. It had involved all kind of emotions, drama and many things that were entirely new to me. With all the pleasure and nostalgia, I sit back today and give you the details of whats, whys and hows of my journey towards my book.

It was the usual signature chilly night of Bangalore, August 26th 2012 to be precise. I was comfortably curled up on my couch dwelling deep into a riveting novel. I was about to finish it and when I read its last word, I somehow hated it. Whenever an interesting book comes to an end, I feel bad. I wish stories, good ones on thi…
