I wrote for the Chicken Soup for the Indian Romantic Soul !

 Like a lot of people all over the world, I’d read and enjoyed a number of books from the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series. But if I said it was my dream to write for them someday, I’d be lying through my beautiful white teeth * grin *

However, when the Editor, Raksha Bharadia, approached me through my blog asking if I would like to write for them, I knew I would be a fool to refuse!


The book I was contacted for was called, ‘Chicken Soup for the Indian Romantic Soul’, the introduction and launch of the Chicken Soup series to and in India. The theme was ‘Love’. Since I am single I wondered what I would write on and after some thought the true love story that first came to mind was that of my parents.

And what is my parents love story?


Read their love story, titled ‘Arranged Love’ on Page 87 of the just released, on Valentine’s Day, ‘Chicken Soup for the Indian Romantic Soul’. I wish I could share a link of the same, but there is none. A hardcopy of the book is available in stores though 🙂


P:S: It was a monumental task to keep my gob shut from October ’09, when I first submitted the story, to the 18th of February ’10 when 2 copies of the book finally arrived via courier.

As it was a surprise The Parents and my family were stunned, before they were pleased and ended up being very proud of me 🙂

Spread the love
