Re-reading Wuthering Heights is a great reminder that 150 years ago, if you, say, sprained an ankle at a neighbor's house, you just lived there for five weeks until it healed.

@cdivakaruni @_PankajGiri I just finished reading #SisterofMyHeart and felt like I was in Kolkata! The twist at the end of the story was impressive as well and left me wanting to know more about the lives of the 2 protagonists. We’re you ever thinking of a sequel ?

Thanks for the kind comments on my novel #SisterofMyHeart. The sequel is titled #TheVineofDesire.

Enjoyed this intelligent piece by @_PankajGiri
about the state of fiction in India and the importance of the middle path. I was touched that he mentioned my #SisterofMyHeart as an influence.

Jindan Kaur escaped British prison, made her way to Nepal by foot and held her dignity through an obnoxious smear campaign. Enjoyed speaking with @cdivakaruni on her new novel, historical fiction on Punjab's last queen #ConversationsAtLarge h/t @DiyaKar73

I, too, enjoyed conversing with you, @aninditaghose. It is important that more people learn about the courageous, headstrong & inspiring #RaniJindan, #TheLastQueen, and how she wrested a victory out of defeat. @HarperCollinsIN

I’m excited about this launch since I got to read multiple drafts of this manuscript!! Rani Jindan was quite a character. A suitably scandalous queen.

Thanks @oinkness for reading drafts and giving great comments. I so appreciate my #writersgroup.

Fiction is cool because sometimes you read a man's description of a woman's body and you're like, wow, delusion in real time

LOL Men writing women

Quoted @NandiniNbhattac

This book delved deep into the hearts of mothers and motherless children with war and unrest in India from 1898 to 1950 as it's backdrop. I enjoyed the book -- amazon reader review

Congratulations @NandiniNbhattac!

LOL. A witty article on why we binge: “A bag of chips is a way to defeat time. It brings temporary infinity: a feeling that it will never end. A chip. A chip. A chip. Another chip.”
