Just as a plain fabric invites the beholder to sew in or paint a pattern, a design or better still ones dreams into it so too does the fabric of life invite each one of us to sew in or paint a pattern, a design, a dream in the form of our thoughts, our beliefs , our vision, our mission and ……..

The Fabric Of Life is a place where I intend to relive old memories, old dreams, live new hopes, new visions and also use as a platform to give words to my feelings on matters dear to my heart. It is here I will be sharing the lessons life has taught me and the knowledge I have acquired over a period of time on various matters simply by listening, observing and imbibing whatever I have come across and what I feel is worth sharing.

In short, “Fabric of Life” will be coloured with myriad of colours. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. Hi Geeta,
    Having just released by debut fiction book Just Kidding…Yours, Destiny, i was hoping that you would review my book.

    The implied essence of the book is about making choices, their consequences and the role of destiny. The uniqueness of the book lies in the content & the writing style, both slightly uncommon. It is being sold on all major e-com channels including Amazon and Flipkart. Relevant links are as follows

    • Hello Mr. C.G.Salamander,

      Congratulations on the launch of your first book ‘Palm’s Foster Home for Peculiar Stories’. I’m sure it is an interesting read. I generally prefer paperbacks to e-books. Hence if it is possible to send across a paperback copy of the book maybe via Amazon.in or so, do let me know so that I can inform you my mailing address.

  5. Dear Geeta Jee,

    My first book of short story collection – Rukhsat The Departure – has been published by Leadstart Publishing. I am not sure if it will be right to ask for a review and give away a book or two. Here is a bit on the book:

    Where a story stops, another one begins. The thing with them is they never walk alone. They always walk with a group of friends. Each reaches its own climax. Then with a final gasp of mortality and despair, fade away. No, they never die they multiply. To the extent that the original gets lost and new ones are born. Over and over again. Yes, they get lost. No, they never die. They live on, permanently etched in the book of time. And from there, we borrow them and bring them alive. Again. And again. Here are twenty-six of them, some standing alone, and some chatting up with their long lost friends. When they depart, they leave a lingering fragrance of nostalgia and curiosity. What happened then?

    Twenty-six alphabets, twenty-six names, and twenty-six short stories. Each exploring one unique emotion, taking you into the dark recess of the mind. Some frothy and most of them dark. Most standing alone and some facing a mirror, where the same story comes alive in two different ways, through two different characters. Meet myriad characters – from the single minded prostitute to the man on the railways station bereft of any memory; a woman desperate for a biological child to a dead man’s trial. Meet a jealous lover with a twisted brain and a gay man’s memory of a one night encounter. Meet twenty-six such characters arrested and sentenced for life inside the pages in a book. Each one leaving an indelible mark on your soul.

    Look forward to a reply. Once I get your address I would be delighted to send you a copy.

    Warm Regards,

    Sujit

  7. Hi Geeta Mam.

    I am an avid reader of your reviews and love the way you write. I am actually fascinated by your writing style and the vocab you possess.

    I am an aspiring writer and just started my career in content writing. I would be greatly thankful if you could share a little trailer of your journey of being such a veteran writer so that I could get some guidance and a path to move in the right direction.

    • Hi Anuj,

      First of all, thank you for the kind words.

      Well when I write I just keep a few things in mind.

      1) If it is a book review, before I pen my thoughts I put myself in the author’s shoes and ask myself some basic questions like how will I react if someone gives me a harsh/ negative review, will I feel hurt or will I be able to leave it behind and just move one?

      This helps in that it helps me word my disagreements in a mild manner. Here I put across my views but without hurting the sentiments of the author. It’s easy for one to be harsh but difficult to have the courage to undertake the strenuous journey of the author. We must respect them for that.

      There have been books which I’d rate as one star or two star. In such cases I refrain from putting up a review. Instead I contact the author directly and put across my inability to post the review duly justifying my decision.

      2) Regarding other forms of writing, it just comes to me naturally. I am not a grammar nazi. Hence I don’t spend too much of time racking my brain on the grammar aspect. But yes, I draft and redraft before publishing something on my blog. I also take my family into confidence and seek their approval. They are my greatest critics. Once in a while I re-visit my articles. It helps smoothen out the flaws if any.

      3) I used to write when a child and even in my college days. Later, when I joined the Bank writing took a back seat. In fact I stopped writing. Then about six to seven years back we started a quarterly news-letter in our office and I was given the chance to co-ordinate and publish the same. That was when I once again started giving words to my ideas. Then there were those various formal and informal functions where I was the MOC. This too helped.

      It is only since the last five to six years after taking VRS that I started re-discovering the joys of writing.

      Anuj, my only advise to you is be truthful to yourself as well as take care not to hurt the sentiments of others when you review their work. Be firm, yet mild when you choose your words. Believe me, it’s not that difficult.

      Wishing you the very best,

      Geeta

      • Thank you so much, Mam. I will follow what you have said and will try to paste your advice permanently in my mind. I did not expect you would write such a long piece of advice for me. Apparently, I can say, besides being a fantastic writer, you are an amazing human being as well. And, that adds to the inspiration I have got from your writings.

        Thank You so much once again.
