Light Of My Life


"The day you were born,
you touched my soul.
You were the missing link,
that made my life whole.

Those beautiful blue eyes,
stare at me in awe.
Gazing at the woman

Who just became your mom."




The light of my life is always ‘love’. The time when I fell in love with a man who just swept me off my feet, an officer in the army who loved me for who I was rather than changing me into some person I didn’t know. I started to believe in myself more when I was with him and that gave me the confidence of pursuing my passion for writing.

When I started out as a young mom, I had no expectations at all as to how I would feel holding a little baby in my arms. I had the smoothest delivery, the baby slid out like a dream and I went home happy with a few stiches to say I am carrying war scars of the labor room. Vivaan was now the little guy who was going to rule my life. From late night readings, my nights ended with feedings and waking up to my child wanting my closeness than anything else. I suddenly found someone who needed me to love him unconditionally, as he loved me. And to this day as he turned three this May, I have memories of those tough nights and frequent change of clothes to having to entertain him, to be the best time of my life. 




I always would see my life in terms of being a mother and a writer and of course, a partner to my husband.
