Was pondering this a few nights ago. Got the answer back from a friend today. Thought I shd blog abt it. What do you think?
Q. Are relationships meant to stagnate? Or die out? Or do ppl carry on bcos they believe in that love and find new shades? Do the relationships even matter in the long run?
A.In my opinion- almost all relationships tend to follow a pre-determined course because of the common denomination of human behaviour. Comfort and subsequent stagnation and lethargy are therefore common consequences in a romantic one. Relationships matter till you are determined to play an active part in society- so their failure or success affect one's idea of well being. As to the importance of a single relationship, that's entirely dependent on the people involved. No relationship is indispensable. How important a role it plays in yur personal happiness quotient is what determines when its time to let go.

More than raunchy tale of Lust, Kinky Sex!
Madhuri Banerjee is back with another racy read on love and relationships titled ‘Scandalous Housewives: Mumbai’. The book revolves around the lives of four housewives living in a residential high rise of Mumbai. As the parallel stories of these four women progress forward, the reader is compelled to ponder upon the role a housewife (read homemaker) plays in a family.
The book promises a raunchy tale of lust, lies, betrayal and of course a final show down but I would urge you not to judge the book by its cover. At many points the novel surprises the reader by the immense depth of its female characters and their paradigm shifting portrayal. Amidst the kinky sex episodes and saucy secrets, the author portrays the ‘lovely ladies’ in bold colours of liberty, breaking all forms of restraint; pushing all boundaries and stepping over all thresholds.
The plot of the story, though thin through the initial half, gathers pace as the story progresses. The lives of the four friends entangle in a meshwork of explosive lies and as all of them strive to maintain the peace of their households, a threatening email shatters everything to the floor; and this marks the real and ultimate test of their ties of friendship. However will they survive?
I must mention here that the plot is a little unfathomable and shaky at certain points, being a major turn off. This line marks my favourite point in the novel – “The best thing a father can give to a child is respect to the mother.”
If you’re looking for a masala weekend read, I’d say go for ‘Scandalous Housewives: Mumbai’ and you may end up with a little more than you bargained for.
I have purposefully not given it any ratings since I wrote the review keeping in mind that the reader would pick it up just as a weekend read. I haven’t judged it with the same standards as I would an Ayn Rand book. I hope that’s okay.

With Richa Chadha at the Maxim event it was a night to remember forever.
I would get Richa to play the character Arti from the novel.
Now off to write it as a screenplay!

I know the fight it has taken to come out. But how will it do now?
It can only be a success if everyone buys a copy. It takes time and effort to make the book. A compromise on your social and family life because you believe in a career. You believe that this is the only thing that you want to do for the rest of your life. You believe that good writing will triumph great marketing. You believe that friends will spread the word. You believe that the power of a story will put food on your table. You believe the days of loneliness will be worth it. And you release your book into the world hoping that your dream won't die and your year won't be a waste. And that someone will order it. How stupid writers are na? ;)
Order #ScandalousHousewives here if you like my work and believe in reading a great story: http://goo.gl/1HDwbs

2. Check it out Yourself – Go for a day’s trip to the city, spend the day at the beach alone, and hike in the mountains. The solitude helps you think and enjoy the new sights even more. If you find someone being chatty, walk on!
3. Family Bonding Time – If you’ve always hated your family here is a good time to connect with them on a `family vacation.’ The purpose for your parents to drag you all the way out there was for them to get to know you better. Spend time making them understand you rather than a stranger who won’t care after the two weeks are over anyway.
4. Just don’t Do It – You’re tipsy with that wine, that person has been noticing you for so long, you’ve even chatted up and felt the “connect.” You can almost feel the words “Want to come back to my room/ Wanna go for a walk alone” coming out of your mouth. Don’t do it. The momentary pleasure will set your hormones in a tizzy and before you know, you’ll be Facebook friends and on Google talk. Bad idea!
5. Get a Hobby – Catch up on your reading if you’re a book worm. Find a local library. Get involved with arts and crafts, adventure sports, painting, or even meeting local heroes. Plunge yourself in activities. Push yourself to do more each day on your vacation rather than finding the “one” and hoping to live happily ever after. A summer is not the time to fall in love. It’s the time to relax and enjoy who you are!

The one on me was made last year when I was a few pounds heavier and hadn't signed on my 4th novel Advantage Love or my trilogy series Scandalous Housewives or my comedy genre My Clingy Girlfriend.
The core values still remain the same. And my daughter Ariaana makes her debut.
Check it out as their PICK OF THE WEEK!
