I have written five fiction books and one nonfiction. The most well-known of my fiction books Wrong for the Right Reasons deals with the realistic theme of the life of a single mother raising her kids in today’s India. For my first non-fiction I have picked up a burning topic, of aged parents coping with being rejected by their adult children. I am a graduate with gold medal in English Literature and a postgraduate in English Literature from Delhi University she is a prolific writer whose short stories have been featured in the NCERT curriculum and in anthologies. She has also won many blogging awards. She can be found at these links

Wrong, For the Right Reasons (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 11, 2014 06:49AM
Description: Shyamoli Verma’s timing is wrong. In her late twenties, she finds that her marriage is irrevocably broken. She comes back to her parents with her pre-teen son and an infant daughter, only to find that she is unwelcome. Independent and brash, she decides to bring up her children and also get a divorce without any support from friends and family. Written with wry self deprecating humour, this is the story of a divorced woman's quest for love and security.

“People often equate divorce with failure. No one wants to admit to failure, but sometimes it is inevitable. The alternative is a far worse option.”
Ritu Lalit, Wrong, for the right reasons

“We women think men are obsessed with sex, and we’re so wrong. Men care about being comfortable. Old jackets, old habits, old ways, old sweethearts, they want all that. They hate change, it gets them unsettled, and they get enough of that when they face challenges at work. They want to come home and regenerate in the cocoon of being Mama’s pet. It is not surprising that men don’t understand the need for growing up. They don’t realize that setting boundaries with parents is the most important thing we need to do in our lives.”
Ritu Lalit, Wrong, for the right reasons

“To boldly go where no man has gone before” says the iconic Captain’s Oath in the Star Trek series. Humanity seeks to live adventures, either by conquering mountains or the seas, or by watching war movies, space adventures, fantasies and thrillers. But often the greatest adventure of them all is to negotiate through a lifetime.”
Ritu Lalit, Wrong, for the right reasons

“Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don’t have the first, the other two will kill you. You think about it; it’s true. If you hire somebody without [integrity], you really want them to be dumb and lazy.”
Warren Buffett

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
