Meera wakes up to find herself in a strange place, she doesn’t recognize. Later she realizes that she doesn’t recognize who she was, herself; not even her own mirror image. On top of this confusion, Ashruth tells her that she was in love with him and their marriage was fixed. She doesn’t like him even a wee bit now. She gets to know her own past from her diary. There is a switch between the confused present and more confusing past in each chapter of the book. Finally, when the diary past and the past-forgotten present meets at a point, she falls in love; not with Ashruth but with her cousin Santhosh.
Her marriage is fixed with someone she loved in the past. She loves someone else in the present. She hates the guy her marriage is fixed with. But she understand the amount of love her parents have for her. All these confusion spin the story into a book. What happens after that is the story.

About the Author
I started writing stories as a hobby in 2010 and to reach a wider audience I started posting those short stories in my blog (GB LAND). Comments from strangers, new readers and the increasing page hits made me an addict to my blog. I had taken my blog seriously from then. I started writing something I call Blog books- series of chapters that make a story in my blog, for which I got an overwhelming response. I had written 6 blog books and each of these blog books have more than 300 dedicated readers. One of my short stories was made into a short film, titled ‘Bhimbam’, which was screened at the AVM Preview theatre.
Bhimbam’s short story:
Slowly, the interest to make short documentaries rose in me. I started making stop motion videos addressing various social issues. Two of my short films named ‘Tiny Steps’ and ‘Candles’ won best film and special mention award respectively at WE CARE Film festival and was screened in several cities. Both the short films are about physically challenged people and their inclusion in the society.

As a blogger, I have won various prizes from Indiblogger.in and blogadda.com. When I won the grand prize worth 25,000 in a contest conducted by sunsilk and a kindle in another contest conducted by the same company, many readers started noticing me as a blogger. Also, I was awarded ‘Woman of Substance’ by Godrej and Blogadda. I was shortlisted for the UK Blog awards 2015.
I always wanted to become a writer and here I am holding my third book as I type this mail to you.
Being a hard core technical developer working for one of the world’s best MNC, the biggest challenge I had was time management. I had never let down my career as a techie for being a writer, also never gave up writing everyday due to work pressure. I work for a solid 9 hours and have 3 technical papers presented in international conferences with myself as the author. One of the technical papers is about a shoe for the blind which I presented at an international conference held in Singapore in 2010.
Awards that I have won:
My short film, Tiny Steps, won the Best Film Award at WE CARE international film festival.
My short film, Candles, won Special Mention Award at WE CARE international film festival.
I won the ‘Best Urban Chennai Blogger Award’ given by Urban Tree and Echovme.
