I'm ecstatic to announce that I finished some writing--finally!
I've poured my heart into this story over the past six months and I'm so happy I can share it with all of you.

Aishwarya Arora has everything planned out. Her final year of college won’t be involving any frat parties, boy drama or whatever else most of the campus seems obsessed with.
And then Luca Violante storms into her world and uproots everything.
The quarterback of the football team, four-time wrestling champ and all around bad boy shouldn’t be starring in her every erotic fantasy. He shouldn’t be popping into the middle of her biochem class!
Luca though is persistent, not to mention sarcastic and prone to jealousy, but Ash sees beyond his tough guy facade. They have absolutely nothing in common and yet with him, she feels freer than ever before.
As their unlikely love blossoms, its sweet pull threatens to eclipse all else. But there’s a darkness that lingers, a fate neither of them can escape.
Nine years after graduation day, Luca is all man and Ash no longer the innocent she once was. Yet, one word continues to haunt her. One accusation.

**New Adult Contemporary Standalone Romance with mature content, plenty of angst and a BIG Indian Wedding**

    Please do reply I'm very eager to read it.


    Keep writing dear di-dums!

    I wish you well!! :)

    Your faithful reader
    Meghmallu ki best friend,

    Saraa Dias!
    Ipkkndrokzz4eva :P

    P.S.: Itna info lika, lag raha hai k police verification dey rahi hoon!!!

    Lol!! :P

    P.P.S.: I just remembered that were you able to find me on fb?
    Cheers!! :))


    I would like to give my toast whenever the celebration party of Shameless happens but well I will right it here anyway... It had to be with the upar wala book cover sentence but anyway...

    Ahmmmm.... I know my dear Di-dums, the writer who writes with the essence of ishq wala love, well for all of you she is Tina di and our beloved writer, has put in a lot of effort to bring this book into existance by sitting in front of the laptop, straining her eyes and making her loved ones bicker about her writing fan fictions on the net and wasting her time and that too over an Indian dailysoap, we must say! She also had to face the criticism, a lot of "gaalias" from the readers for her untimely updates but she didn't break our trust and brought out the best out of her heart, mind and soul into each and every word in her stories.

    She has put in whatever she had learnt from her childhood in every field... And may I say more specifically in *ahem* *ahem* field ;)

    And we don't mind it at all...
    Coz we too love each and every letter written in her stories and each one us wants to go to gaga land (or tinaji ka wonder-dreamland) and feel like Alice each and everytime.
    And dream about our prince charming there. *Sig.....hh...hhh*

    I don't know about others
    but I can surely say there is not a day on which I don't read a Tinaji ka update.. Even though its the update are old...

    Since its a toast..

    And bahut bada hogayega if I keep on speaking...
    But in the end I would just like to say...

    Aisa koi chand nahi
    Jo tumhari tarif na kare
    Aisa koi gulab nahi
    Jo tumhari khusboo ka intehaa naa kare

    Mere toh tumse ek ji hai khooaish,
    K aap k dil se sabdh nikalne k liye kisse ka intezaar naa kare,

    Aur iss aapke kahani k mehboob pe bas ek daya kijiye,
    Apni yeh likhayeee allah ke liye kabhi baand na kijiye!

    May God bless you always!

    It seems as if aaj mere andar ka shayar bahar aagaya,
    Gemini hooney k fayade...
    I wrote it myself!
    I never listen to shayari,
    Par kya kare tumko dekha toh yeh khayal aaya!

    Bye bye!
    Need to to go some Havan tomorrow!
    Muah muah!
    Love you!

    P. S infinity.: I know I speak a lot but I speak it from my heart <3 :D

    Long Live Di-Dums! :-)=

  43. Shit pehle wala comment itna bada hogaya!

    This new story sounds really interesting! I'm looking forward to reading about characters other than Arshi! I am happy to see you back on the blog. Thank you for being so dedicated and sincere with your stories. It reflects in you writing. I hope everything goes well from here on. I would love to be able to be able to read your stories on Amazon one day!

    Thank you for all the wonderful stories that you have let us read over the past several years!

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. Hope you like Luca and Ash's story <3

  61. Your writing is always spot-on and a joy to read. How you write and portray the characters every time so differently reflects creativity with a healthy dose of curiosity – key components for excellent, engaging pieces. I have been following you from IPKKND days from india-forums, to your first blog to here. I appreciate the time, dedication, and thought you invest into each piece for readers like us, You are an inspiration to many and I hope along with the life saving job you are doing, you will keep on writing forever.

    Loads of love for you.

    1. Aww thank you so much hun. Your post put a huge smile on my face. Glad you've enjoyed all the arhi fanfics over the years and hopefully that will carry on to Heartless as well. Hugs!

Secret Passion Updated!

At the time of my last note, I had decided to continue Secret Passion but it was hard to find the motivation to continue with a funeral to deal with and just generally, a very difficult time. It took me some time but here it is... The season finale of Secret Passion! Episode 46: Undone Or just scroll down! KEEP IN MIND: all warnings apply. Read the disclaimer for Secret Passion here if you haven't already. Don't like, don't read. It's pretty simple. The internet is a big place and I don't need negativity on my site so exit out of here if it's not for you. I really can't be clearer.
With this chapter, the story crosses 850 pages on Word :O I've been working on Desert Heat as well but it is longggg. I had forgotten how long lol.  So it is a work in progress and I will update you all soon with its progress. In other news... I am planning something for Valentine's day so make sure to stop by ;)
Hope you are all doing well! I will respond to comments soo…

Baby Hold On Part 26-29

Got a bit delayed tonight, but here is Baby Hold On's much awaited update. This is the one you've been waiting for--trust me. All those questions so many of you have asked all along finally get answered. Answers I couldn't share until now... Happy Reading.  And let me know what you think. Baby Hold On Part 26: Answers & Hideouts Please leave all comments here please!
I will try to reply to everyone soon. ps. Secret Passion readers, I know that was some cliffhanger to end at last time. I will try to post the next part sooner than later. pss. I haven't forgotten about DH. I'm just a bit sentimental about that story ending so I'm taking my time with it. Only 10 chapters left :(

Happy Valentine's Day!

FYI: I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's day  (e(except for the discounted chocolates the next day lol)  but I have planned some things for all of you...  This was supposed to happen in time for New Years but  life intervened... it's finally coming together now!
First up-- Bow-Tied is at the lowest price possible on Amazon US/UK for one day only (8am Feb 14 to 8am Feb 15th). Unfortunately, the discount feature is not available for other marketplaces otherwise I would have offered that. For those unable to order, I'm trying to plan something for you. It's in the works... I will post more about it hopefully soon!
Second-- this one is for everyone!! It's the new fanfic idea I haven't been able to get out of my head. After writing a romcom, time travel story, historical romance and a dark epic-length soap opera, this time I'm venturing into the Alpha/Omega genre with a soulmate twist. It will be another original, mature Arnav-Khushi fanfic, as always.
Please note: updates …
