So, The Interview Happened!

I was dreading it, you know. My heart was beating triple time.

  • Would it still be happening?
  • Would it get postponed again?
  • Would I be able to speak?

But I shouldn’t have worried.

And… The Interview is BACK ON! (Plus #BookSale!)

You might remember a couple of weeks ago, I excitedly posted about being interviewed on TalkRADIO about my dear book baby… then, due to this horrible virus, it got delayed… then postponed.

Well, I am delighted to say that (touchwood) it is back on tonight!

I’ll be being interviewed for part of Badass Women’s hour (which is longer than an hour!) from 8.45pm by Harriet Minter, I believe!

Here’s the link for you, if you need it!

It all started ended with that box…

Aashi’s life was all set.

Or so she thought.

Like in the Bollywood films, Ravi would woo her, charm her family and they’d get married and live happily ever after.

But then Aashi found the empty condom box…

Putting her ex-fiancé and her innocence behind her, Aashi embarks upon an enlightening journey, to another country, where vibrant memories are created, and unforgettable friendships forged.

Old images erased, new beginnings to explore.

And how can she forget the handsome stranger she meets? A stranger who’s hiding something…

And it’s gathering ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reviews too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Splendid

Marriage Unarranged is probably one of the best “Getting Over a Breakup” stories I’ve ever come across. Culturally rich and emotionally captivating, it’s a story that inspires us to find and refine our best qualities, to get back up off scraped knees when life knocks us down. From the first sentence, I was hooked. This novel, though written in lush prose, reads quickly, and deserves to be re-read in years to come. Sit back with a cup of chai and immerse yourself in the splendor that is Marriage Unarranged.

5.0 out of 5 stars You fall in love with the characters… And India!! Such a beautiful read.

Where do I start!! An amazing read and incredibly relatable. I’ve read this in an afternoon! I did not want to put it down!! Ritu captures your full attention in the first few pages….. The mention of Hindi tapes! There are so many ‘throw-backs’ in this novel, which have made me very nostalgic about the 90’s (I’m a mid-80’s baby!) The Ravi and Nishi characters, their behaviour, reminiscent of many characters from my school-days, but then there is Aashi. She is courageous, displaying self-control, behaving with such integrity and dignity. She is inspiring. This is a fantastic read. Ritu has inspired me to revisit India!!

No, It’s Not About Me… Or You… (That’s why it’s called Fiction)

Pop over to my author blog for some reflections since the book release ❤

It’s been a whirlwind week since the launch, last Sunday, and I have been overwhelmed by the support from everyone.

From the blog tour posts (thank you to the awesome hosts), all the sharing of my book release, to the numerous comments of encouragement, I have been overwhelmed!

And, I am so excited to tell you that there are already several 5-star reviews on Amazon AND Goodreads.

But… there are so many people who automatically thought that as I have written a book, it must be about my life.

Er, no, folks, it’s not an autobiography, it’s fiction!

And, if you weren’t aware, I am married, happily! (No unarranging here – it wasn’t arranged at all, total love story here, but that is a personal story 😉)

If you ask any author, they will have been asked similar questions – unless you write science fiction, or…
