Deepti Menon has always believed in the power of the pen. Having done her post graduation in English Literature and her B.Ed. in English, she had the option of teaching and writing, and did both with great enjoyment. She started writing at the age of ten, long before she acquired a Diploma in Journalism. She also had the advantage of being an Army kid, and later an Army wife, and loved the idea of travelling around India, meeting new people and acquiring new skills. She firmly believes that much of her personality was honed during those travels.
In 2002, her light hearted book, ‘Arms and the Woman’, depicting life as seen through the eyes of an Army wife, was published by Rupa Publishers, Delhi. This was written mainly to reveal the warmth a

It is up to you to sift what you see, analyze it and turn it around to work for you! As Mark Twain put it, "Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please."(less)

Quotes by Deepti Menon  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The well padded astrologer stroked his corpulent belly, as he stared down intently at his cowrie board. There was a frown on his moon shaped face, a face that had always considered good rich food his birthright, even as he strove to read the cryptic messages that the Gods were strewing before him.”
Deepti Menon, Chronicles of Urban Nomads

“The bubble had subsided, leaving only a tiny scar, but the irrational fear of water never quite left her. I never allowed her to forget, not for a moment.”
Deepti Menon, Chronicles of Urban Nomads

“The first time Akash took Supriya to view the pool, I rose up in strident protest, and he was astonished by the way she turned her face away, her eyes filled with terror. “I am petrified of water!” she whispered, as he tried to cajole her to at least put her feet in.”
Deepti Menon, Chronicles of Urban Nomads

“There was a spring in his carefully measured step. He opened the door and let the sunlight in, as if opening himself up, letting pent-up energy out and, letting the world enter inside- letting the light illuminate him. It was strange to see him like that, a tad amusing perhaps. He had thought it over. He had decided to welcome me with happiness and joy and to present his best self to me, whenever I decide to come.”
Ashay Abbhi, Chronicles of Urban Nomads

“I went closer this time and touched him. He let out a deafening shriek, as if something had pierced into his heart. I held his hand and sat there, admiring the intricate network of life on them. The creases and folds in his body were testament to the cruelty that he had been subjected to in this world. The watery eyes screamed of the pain, the agonising wait to leave this godforsaken place forever, that had given him nothing but pleadings for mercy.”
Ashay Abbhi

“You see, I don’t go anywhere uninvited, and definitely, not before I am supposed to.”
Ashay Abbhi, Chronicles of Urban Nomads

“With every morsel I ate, I looked into her eyes and apologised for not being able to feed her enough. Her eyes, in turn, apologised for not being able to help me in these tough times.”
Ashay Abbhi

“There was a story etched in each wrinkle on his forehead-the stories any long life can amass but that only a lonely life locks forever.”
Ashay Abbhi, Chronicles of Urban Nomads
