Repost @ashiejayn: "When Mona Mathur of Dehradun married her college sweetheart, Ramit Deol of Amritsar, there were two things she wasn’t prepared for:
1. The size of the Deol family which put any Sooraj Barjatya movie to shame.
2. The fertility of the Deol family which had them reproducing faster than any other species known to mankind.
.
It has now been four years since their wedding, and Mona and Ramit have done the unthinkable – they have remained childless. Of course, that also means that they’ve battled that one question day in and day out: ‘Koi Good News?’ It doesn’t matter that they have been happy to be child-free. They are married; they are expected to make babies. After all, there are grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles, aunts, and even colony aunties in waiting.

Now, the truth is, Ramit and Mona had been trying to conceive for the past one year. Finally, aided by the wine at their highly glamorous neighbours’ party, Mona gets pregnant. And so begins a crazy journey – complete with interfering relatives, nosy neighbours, disapproving doctors, and absolutely no privacy at all!

Can Mona and Ramit survive The Great Indian Baby Tamasha or will their carefully built tower of marital joy crumble to the ground?

Baby wardrobe (which includes a onesie, a dress with matching sunhat, shorts & tee, and shoes) and baby carriage all made with Origami by me. For the wheels on the baby carriage I have used shell fastenings.

I first came across K. A. Abbas's short stories two years ago, when I read An Evening in Calcutta & Other Stories. I remember feeling an unexplicable sense of awe which led me to wonder why I had never heard of him before - this man who wrote such simple but powerful stories.

So, I looked him up on Google and learnt he was a prolific journalist, screenwriter, novelist, and film director. He wrote in Hindi, Urdu, as well as English with such finesse that it was impossible to determine which language a story was originally written in. The recipient of four National Awards he also wrote movies that made the careers of many actors.

An Evening in Lucknow compiles a collection of 17 of his works that embrace varying themes such as caste, romance, family, and superstition among others. His protagonists hail from cities as well as villages and his stories revolve around capturing their life's conundrum.

While there is often a satirical tone to his writing, what one will note is that they offer a peek into his social conscience and his commitment to causes of a progressive nature. While the characters and their settings may seem ordinary, the underlying context and conflict of the story and the unique way in which he brings a resolution is nothing short of stunning.

An unconventional writer of his time, his stories are an education in understanding the art of creative writing.

An Evening in Lucknow-Selected Stories by K. A. Abbas. This 2011 Edition edited by Suresh Kohli. Published by Harper Perennial, an imprint of @harpercollinsin.

I'm going to see Hanson tonight (mmhmm, that Hanson for all my 90s babies) with the Symphony, which is hilarious. We're bringing a picnic along and our favorite summertime libations, such as this delicious mead! • 🐝🍯🥂 •

What do you like to pack for a picnic? Recipe suggestions welcome 😃. • 🍞🍓🧀 •

I've been in a bit of a reading slump so far this month and I am hoping I can get back on track this weekend. The plan, which is subject to change, is to finish Unclean Jobs and start Sick. These are both highly anticipated and short reads so I think there's a possibility I could get through both. What are y'all reading this weekend?

And sometimes on a break, you stop by a book sale, and the one book you pick up is signed by your favorite author! What serendipity! 💕 #talesandales

You might have seen in my stories that the amazing people @arcticzero sent me some free pints of their New Light Ice Cream to try... so being the Bookstagrammer that I am, I immediately had to pair the containers with books for a visual feast before I began the actual feast. 😂

And now I think I’ve found my new favorite #bookishrainbow! You can’t really beat a books and ice cream rainbow, amiright? 🙌🏼

I’ll be trying all these delicious sounding low cal treats soon and telling you more about them. And looking for more colorful covers on my shelves because now I feel the need to do more #bookrainbow pics. 😍

Hope your Friday is going well. Happy reading bibliophiles! 😘

#twofortuesday Both book covers titles were created by the inestimable @velvetspectrum. Somebody asked me the other day which one I like more, but that’s like asking if you like your right arm or your left arm more. 🤪 I can’t wait to see the #ArtBoss hardback when it comes out, 10/2/18, the day before my birthday. October is gonna be lit, y’all. 📚

I love mead and I love Renaissance/Medieval Faires. I also love the story of King Arthur, Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table (anyone have any good retelling recommendations along those lines??) • ⚔️ •

This is the most beautiful bottle of mead I've ever seen, and it's called Camelot so...obviously pair with King Arthur anything. • 👑 •

Jousting Knight and Medieval Damsel bookmarks to color from @magnetic_past are some of my favorites I own, and the first I received! • 🏰 •

What renaissance/medieval tradesman would you be? • 🐉 •

I've always thought blacksmithing is super cool, but would also love to be a mead maker/village inn proprietor! • 🥂 • **Magnetic Past is on holiday for the month of July and will return in August, in which time my rep code will be active for a nice discount on your purchase!** • 📖 •

No better way to celebrate Sugar Cookie Day than with DINOSAUR shaped cookies — complete with dinosaur sprinkles and one of Elena’s favorite books, Billie’s Yummy Bakery Adventure. 📚💓👩‍🍳 #sugarcookieday #raisingreaders #bookpairing #kanemillerbooks

For Sarina Kamini's Kashmiri family, food, love, faith and family all mean one and the same thing. Having grown up watching her Ammi (grandmother) cook, she inherited a love for food which resulted in her becoming a food writer in later life. But many years before that happened, her relationship with her family took a sharp turn downhill after her mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

Unable to deal with the grief, Kamini soon left home and with it everything they believed in, behind. She went on to marry, have children, travel, and write, but her faith in all things that mattered to her Kashmiri roots was lost.

Until the day she decided to rise above her loneliness and grief by teaching herself to cook using her Ammi's handwritten recipes. With each dish, she reinstated her bond with those long forgotten spices, rekindling lost memories, personalising her own traditions, and in the process charting a way to forgiveness and love.

Spirits in a Spice Jar is a memoir that doubles up as a recipe book. She writes a heartfelt tale of her journey, as guided by food, that brings her closer to her family and to God. And in the process, she learns how family is as much about love as it is about challenges and acceptance.

Getaway book #4. More on a theme including and before getaway. #aperolspritz #bookpairing #getawayreads

Haven't you heard? THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD! It's hilarious and sexy and I felt all the emotions throughout. I'm scraping my way out of a book hangover from it. • 🍓 •

Pair with a strawberry Bellini or some pretentious over-priced wine. 🥂 • 📝 •

What's your latest obsession? Bookish or otherwise. • 💋 •

Lately I've been brainstorming ideas for new content and ways of recommending more backlisted books on my feed. One of my ideas is to share #readalikes with y'all. So first off we have The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and Red Clocks by Leni Zumas. Both are speculative fiction and take place is a near-term future where women's reproductive rights have been stripped away. They both have fantastic character development and feel like a plausible reality. If you've read one and loved it, I think you'll enjoy the other. ⠀

I'd love to know if y'all want to see more of these in the future or if you have requests for certain readalike books. So let me know!⠀

Rainy day dreamin’ 📚🍻 #talesandales
