Guest Post: Is it done? by Laxmi Hariharan

lax_pic1It’s that feeling I get in my underbelly, a little tremor tapping across my spine. When I am reaching for something. Not quite infinite.

And I know I am almost there. I can feel it, taste it, touch it.

It’s real and living all around me.

Am I the insane one here?
The one who is unreal?

For the characters I have created now have a life of their won.
They are taking over mine.
I envy them, laugh with them. Cry about them.
I want to be…. Them.

My own life feels a bit of a let down.

I suppose its quite okay to feel that way.
Even though they are all having all the fun, not I.
It’s my fate in their hands and not the other way around.

Book Excerpt:


About the book:

About The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer:

A girl desperate to rescue her best friend.
A cop willing to do anything to save the city he serves.
A delusional doctor bent on Bombay’s annihilation.

When Ruby Iyer’s best friend is kidnapped by the despotic Dr Kamini Braganza, she will do anything to rescue him. Anything, including taking the help of the unpleasant Vikram Roy, a cop on a mission to save Bombay.

The city needs all the help it can get, and these two are the only thing standing between its total destruction by Doctor Braganza’s teen army.

As Bombay falls apart around them, will Ruby be able to save her friend and the city? Will she finally discover her place in a city where she has never managed to fit in? And what about her growing feelings for Vikram?

    I was reading Laxmi’s words and I guess I feel the same about the characters I love – I want to be there for them when they are happy or sad, I want to be their friend or to simply be them.. I love reading so much!

    • Ari says:

      I know the feeling. There are characters I feel the need to hug or take them home with me, or have fun with them. They are all part of my life and they will forever 🙂
