Yay!!

September has really been a good month for my writing.  My children's story "The Story Lady" won the First Prize in the Unisun - Reliance TimeOut Competition.  The prize money is twenty five thousand rupees.  I know, my head is whirling!  The story will be included in an anthology, to be published in the next few months.  More details and links later. 

I've so many drafts in my head - so much to say - but thanks to a very busy schedule, plus lots of power cuts,  they will all have to wait.

Heartiest congratulations Shruthi! You deserve every success in your writings. I love your blog and visit it very very often. I love the way you have handled your daughter so far and try and draw tips to do the same with my daughter.
