Well Hello There!

Hey, thank you for stopping by! I’m Gauri and I host this little corner of the internet called Tinkling Tales.


I enjoy stories — reading them, listening to them, watching them and telling them. I love words and like collecting life-lemons because they almost always make for great stories. I also have a special recipe for making sweet-and-sour lemonade.


Naps, tea, book, talk and book-talk, music and movies help me recharge. I have a BSc. in Zoology and am currently pursuing a Masters in Biotechnology. Enough about me, phew! I tend to blabber too much as you might have already guessed by now. Let’s get started, shall we? 🙂

Welcome to The Tinkling Tales blog!

A Little Something

Just the usual struggles of a girl next-door.

Work-in-Progress *1 Castle of Leaves

Started off with the working title of Meandering Souls.

Currently working on Draft Two. Bad pitch in one sentence: A group of misfits in search of their personal truth in a utopia whose ruler is baffled as to why her people are not happy even with all the criteria of a happy life fulfilled.

It is Okay, even good to feel embarrassed of your old writing.

Just don’t stop being proud of yourself for writing it.

Surbhi From The Sidelines: My second Novella at 16.

🌻Affirmation: I have grown as a person. I have a different outlook towards life as a 22 yo than as a 16 yo. My words from back then portray my priorities from when I was younger. There is no reason to cringe or damn my words as childish and immature.

Instead, it is wiser to keep gathering new experiences and most importantly, to KEEP WRITING.

A Heavenly Mess! The Novella I wrote as a 13-year old.

🌻Affirmation: I’m happy to read it now. It’s not the best work that has ever come out of me but it is certainly the most innocent and not to mention, hilarious if I say so myself.
