 Dereck has accidentally slipped into a seemingly unending black hole while trekking in the Black Forests of Germany. His whole life flashes before his eyes as he travels down the dark tunnel. Once out in broad daylight, he is surprised to be alive and shocked to find himself in India.
One evening a teenager looks up from the book she is reading and finds a phantom staring her in the face, floating between her mother’s white roses, a few steps away from her.
On another day Daddy’s bike journey once again very mysteriously comes to a similar end like always, almost like a decree from God.
For Meera, a young teenager, life seems to have always turned a deaf ear towards her. One day she finally decides to step off into oblivion. She goes unheard.
‘Not Totally Unbelievable’ is a collection of 10 short stories narrating the extra- ordinary experiences in the lives of the seemingly most ordinary people from the Occident, Orient and India. These pieces of fiction are essentially true stories that will compel one to believe in mysterious magical powers and forces around us, within us.

 Hope to see you'll at Flipkart leaving some book reviews for me to read and learn from! :D
Warm wishes for the festive season once again....

When dreams come true.....

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.- Walt Disney


I started this blog and began exploring myself as a storyteller. Little did I know that I was actually opening up a door for myself! 
I was only an advertising professional- a copywriter until I gave it all up, went on a hiatus away from it all and found my MoJo to write for myself. Write like I wished to. Write to entertain not sell. So here I was, dishing out tales, deriving inspiration from true life stories. And what a splendid support I received from my fellow bloggers and friends.


They gave me the confidence to see myself in a new light, as a writer!


I now walk down a new path, hoping all my friends here in the blog-o-sphere will guide me as lovingly as they had in the past. I request you to once again oblige me with your love, visits and readership.


My dear friends, my maiden venture as an author has been published and is presently being distributed all over India. So you will be seeing 'NOT TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE' on the shelves of leading bookstores and even online, very soon !
 :D


I dedicate this maiden venture of mine, as an author, to all those friends who graced my blog with kind, appreciative comments, polished my writings with their clear and corrective criticism. 


With Warm Regards,
Yours Always,
VIBHUTI BHANDARKAR 




PS: will keep you'll posted about the progress of the book and also provide all details in following blogs. Keep visiting! ;)
