Lock Down Diary Vol.1

Once Upon A Time…

Life chugged along peacefully.

And then, a pandemic struck!

Literally overnight, everything came to a screeching halt. And a nation went into lockdown in March 2020.

During the first couple of months of our LockDown, I wrote a little over 75,000 words. That’s almost 2 full-length novels!

One morning, I went through this material… and picked out my most favorite inspirational and insightful messages.

Then I included the 16 most beautiful photos I shot during this period… and compiled it into a nice little ebook.

It’s called:

Kishore Kumar

“Excellent presentation along with lovely photos, your words echoes almost everyone’s views, where we are like, living life at a leisure once again and having more time to look around and also to look within ourselves too.”


“I quite liked the compilation of your social media posts… some more than others. Loved the opening post especially – the first day of the lockdown one.”

Manjula Rao

“Enjoyed every bit of it. Things that the lockdown has taught us – how uncertain and fragile our life is, and what really matters. Not only are your thoughts crystal clear but you’re a master storyteller.”


“In this lockdown period everyone has come to know how blessed we are and how small things in life regarding family are important. Keep going. P.S. – Excellent pictures.”

Uma Vassan

“Great photos and good conversation for a Sunday Morning. Reminded me of ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’. Thanks for this.”


“This piece of writing reminded me of a remark I had made recently to a friend: ‘Nothing’s more certain than uncertainty.‘ And you have celebrated it!

The randomness of it made more interesting reading. The clear blue skies and the foliage were eye catching. I could relate to some of the incidents. The snippets of unadulterated words of wisdom, though not too heavy, passed me by.

To sum up, this was a piece, I savoured reading.”

Why So Costly?

Fair question. Let me answer.

Prior to 2003, everyone bought paperback and hard cover books, paying $19.95 to $39.95 for a collection of stories.

Then Amazon’s Kindle marketplace emerged.

It ripped the model to shreds. Soon we were buying Kindle ebooks for as little as $2.99, or $1.99, or even just 99 cents!

There’s good reason for this.

As ebooks took over from print, authors and publishers no longer had extra costs to print, store and ship books. Why, then, should they charge as much?

That’s fair. And it’s a Good Thing for you, as a reader.

But here’s what is NOT fair…

Little children born with heart birth defects who need expensive and life-threatening operations – just to stay alive.

And I write books to help these ‘heart kids’. To sponsor life-saving operations that will keep them alive.

Royalties from book sales have sponsored 152 heart surgeries for kids upto May 2020, through my Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation. (click here to learn more)

These operations have not become less expensive!

So when you pay a bit more to enjoy a story or learn a powerful life lesson, you’re also helping a child live.

Still think it’s unfair – or too costly?
