Bards of the Blogosphere Special - A Bard a Day - No. 5 Sulekha Rawat


Have you heard of the Bards of the Blogosphere? If not, let me explain. We (because I'm a member too) are a group of Indian-based bloggers, randomly brought together by Blogadda, the Indian blogging hub. We are co-writing a novella.  It's well underway and is an exciting story of drama, intrigue, suspense and.....well, you'll just have to read it to find out.  The Bards are taking part inthe Game of Blogs, an activity promoted by Blogadda to #CelebrateBlogging.  Let's meet the Bards, one by one. On Wednesday, we met Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan. Thursday, we met the vivacious Divyakshi Gupta from Mumbai.  Friday, we met the multi-faceted Priyanka Roy Banerjee!  Yesterday, it was the turn of the enigmatic Nupur Maskara.  And today, we have the talented Sulekha Rawat.

Can you share a little about yourself?
Hi, I am Sulekha Rawat, friends and family know me as Lucky. Writer and Co-founder of www.socialpotpourri.com, I am interested in Social Media, Branding, Marketing, Content writing, Creative Writing, Poetry and Blogging. I started off as a science student but ended up being an artist :) Writing challenges and consumes me, it throws my life out of gear and makes everyday interesting and worth living. I haven’t unraveled all the intricate layers of life yet, but am getting there. I embrace friends and their pain becomes mine, their joys make me happy. I can’t detach myself from those I care about and it hurts me at times, but it’s all an integral part of who I am. I sing off-key, dance with two left feet and enjoy each and every moment of life.

How are you enjoying being a Bard of the Blogosphere?
I am loving it. Blogadda did a wonderful thing by making us write as a team. The Bards of the Blogosphere is a lot more than a team now, it is a big happy family. We plan, plot, offer constructive criticism, have healthy discussions, and wholeheartedly cheer each other on. Can’t imagine life without my fellow Bards J

How does it feel to co-write a novella?  Have you done this before?
It feels great to co write a novella, it is a novel experience for me (pardon the pun)

Do you know the ending to the story?
Yes, we all do. We all have written the story in our heads and know where it ends, we just have to put it down on our blogs for the world to read and enjoy. Hopefully when our book comes out J

Can you sum up this experience in a Tweet sized sentence?
The Bards of the Blogosphere are here to stay,
They discuss their story and write everyday.
They celebrate blogging in their  special way.

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar


As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
