Ok, must admit - haven't read a lot of fiction. More of a non-fiction reader and a movies guy.
For books, and with due disclaimer - I love Jeera Packer and Jaya's couple - electric chemistry - they dress up for love, do it in the car, on the highway, while driving. They grow old together, she the pillar of strength and he dealing with his own demons. And then, her strength to be nonchalant and let him free to explore his destiny though she knows she could lose her man forever in that quest. Her strength makes for a great foil against his internal struggles and strife.
Another fictional couple - and you didn't specify it to be only books - would be Mohsina and Faizal Khan from Gangs of Wasseypur 2. Again electric chemistry, that palpable spark and love for each other when down is in a different zone. Would rate them above Sardar Khan and Naghma due to their playfulness, chemistry and visible hunger for each other.
Loved Rani Mukherjee and Prithviraj's characters in Aiyya - she pretty assertive about her desires and he, the strong, silent, responsible man.
From mythology - Radha and Krishna - again, no labels, not defined in traditional, socially accepted terms but surreal. What you can feel, and it feels awesome but cannot name or label or describe. Guess, that's what magic is - undefinable, unnamable but feels like being in the skies or floating over the moon. All surreal and transcendental.

By writing through it.

Anyone seriously desiring to be a writer has to write. Everyday. It's as simple.

It may work differently for others but for me, what works best is a fixed time pre-dawn. Everyday. A fixed target of words. Same seat. All noise cut out. Like they say, the muse doesn't visit on a fine day when stars align the best - it comes when you sit everyday and summon it through hard work.(less)

Strategy – one word that fascinates everyone ranging from Chanakya to Amit Shah to McKinsey suits to everyone with a full belly and enough intellectual pretensions.


Confession – I too have been much enamoured by it, but have always struggled at articulating what strategy is. For the longest time, it lay in the, ‘I know it but can’t express it,’ zone which essentially is bullshit. I firmly believ...
