Like a lot of people all over the world, I’ve read a number of books from the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series. If I said it was my dream to write for them someday, I’d be lying through my beautiful white teeth 🙂
However when the Editor, Raksha Bharadia, approached me through my blog asking if I would like to write for them, I knew I would have been a fool to refuse!
Since the book I was contacted for had ‘Love’ as the theme, the true love story that first came to mind was that of my parents.
And what is their love story?
Read my Parents love story, titled ‘Arranged Love’ on Page 87 of the just released, on Valentine’s Day, ‘Chicken Soup for the Indian Romantic Soul’
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 were stunned, before they were pleased and ended up being very proud of me 🙂
