Guest Post + Giveaway (INT)- You wanna’ be my chamak challo?? by Adiana Ray

Hi, guys! Today we have with us author of Rapid Fall, Adiana Ray, who has written an awesome guest post for all of you and has generously offered to give away a copy of her book to a lucky reader. There's lot in store here so let's get on to the post we have for you. 


Sonia and JD’s instant attraction is much more tempestuous and thrilling than the water sports they have come to Rishikesh for. Not even a dip in the icy waters can douse the sparks that fly when they are around each other.

JD is divorced and commitment phobic, and only wants to focus on their electric physical attraction. Sonia is undeniably attracted to smooth and sophisticated JD, but wants more than he is willing to offer.

Their tumultuous love story starts in the mountains and ends by the sea. Along the way, they discover that once you fall in love, nothing can ever be the same again.



Adiana Ray believes in the Zen tenet ‘each state has a 1000 truths’. Every person brings their own unique experiences to a situation, which makes them see things differently and interpret it in their own way.
This is what inspires her to write, trying to see each relationship in a different way, and always having a new story to tell. When she writes, her story could be a fantasy, but will be a believable one that could happen to anyone of us and her focus, above all, is to entertain the reader.
'Rapid Fall’ is her first published book. She can be reached HERE


You wanna’ be my chamak challo?? 

 Whenever people talk about romance and India in the same breath, they somehow only think of Bollywood or some dark dashing Indian prince or a lissome Indian princess….well there is a lot more to romance in India and there are millions of us to prove it. Besides not to be mean about this but most of the royalty that I have seen (only in photographs) have not exactly been dark and dashing and despite what the world thinks you don’t exactly bump into a Bollywood hero at every street corner. 

 One of the really big meeting grounds that have got so many romance stories flourishing is the humble office space. I don’t mean only in fancy multinationals or in westernized media companies etc but I am talking about the small and medium local companies just around the corner. So look past the melamine covered desks and molded chairs on wheels, past the computers and Ganesh the peon who knows whatever is going on in the office and you will see how the younger guys suddenly perk up when one of the girls walk past. Or the girls giggle and pretend to look away or act very busy when there is a certain colleague in their vicinity. In India office get togethers’ still mean that everyone goes out together in a big group BUT , nudge…nudge…ankh mille, mill ke jhuk gaye…this is romance Desi Ishtyle. 

 Times have changed, people are exposed to so much more, and young girls are more educated and aware of what they want. Young men are more willing to be independent and do their own thing. We have one of the youngest populations in the world, we have so many women now entering what was considered traditional male territory: mix all that together…voila! something is sure to happen and romance is bound to blossom. This is the type of romance that I write about. A love story that could very well be played out in front of us and may well be about you, me or even that aunty around the corner.
