About Me

 

 

Where do I begin?

 

So, this is where I tell you a little about myself and how I got here…

 

Hi, my name is Jignasha or  Jigs, that’s what everyone calls me, at least in the virtual world.  I am privileged to hold many titles in my asli duniya; Daughter, Wife, Mother and an Executive in Corporate America, residing in the great city of New York. My favorite of them being Mother, since my children are my life and keep me real day in and day out.

 

My fascination with Fan Fiction started whilst looking for a spoiler for a show called Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, not sure if you have heard of it ;)… but what I found was a veritable gold mine!  Stories written by some brilliant authors, and some not, but the ones that appealed to me had me captivated. Though, initially I had continued to read silently, with words failing me in writing comments, not to mention my hectic life. But one day I decided to take the plunge and comment.  That opened up the floodgates to meeting wonderful people who have now become dear friends in this virtual space.

 

And because of those dear friends, I picked up my pen to move over to the other side, and actually write the story. Something that I had no clue about, coming from a world of analytical data, spreadsheets, presentations, budgets and business plans. But they say there’s always a story inside of you that needs to be told. And who would have thought, I had many… not me, that’s for sure.

 

Let’s just say I was firmly bitten by the writing bug… Stripped, Revealed, along with a few One Shots, and now, Temptation. It’s this virtual forum that has allowed this amateur’s ink to flow with what churns incessantly inside my curious dimaag. All thanks to the response from my wonderful readers. I am truly humbled by your support throughout this journey.

 

I do hope all of you will continue to support my curious musings till there are no more stories inside of me to share.

 

Love always,

Jigs

      1. Hello Jigs,
        I am alaskan and am contacting you for the first time. I log into india forums once every few weeks to read fan fictions and my favourite is Revealed. I was quite shocked when i logged in just now and found out about your story being plagiarized. Like all your fans,
        i also support you with your decision.
        I am glad you are going to finish the story and i am looking forward to reading the drabble too. Please let me know how to access your work as i would love to read it. You are an awesome writer and i would not want to miss your work.

  8. Curiosity… Hummm… an interesting choice of a word!
    But what I constantly heard
    Is that curiosity is more than preferred
    It is the beginning of things discovered

    Curiosity… oh my!!! How imagination gets unleashed!
    And take a dive into a mental feast
    All that curiosity brings is gems that gets released
    Who are we to complain but to read a relish

  13. You are one of the most brilliant writers of the IPKKND forum
    I wait patiently for your updates
    Your stories are very real to life and not just fantasy

    I came across IPKKND by chance or maybe fate, looking for Punar Vivaah and saw the “Oh La La” dance, and was immediately hooked.
    I totally forgot about Punar Vivaah

    And since then even after the show ended I am still hooked on reading about them

    1. Awww that is so sweet of you! Thank you for such kind words and the wonderful comments you provide.
      Isn’t something else how one show has changed our life?
      Love it and you!

  17. Holy shit. That was…..HOT. Jigs, this was your first attempt at writing?!!! Jahanpanah, tussi great ho! You are so brave, lady ASR! <3 Thank you for posting this and for sharing it with all of us! I am still in shock. Never been a fan of fifty shades, and even though this OS is based on it, I think this is a million times better! You were able to strike a perfect balance between ASR and Arnav and you made me like both of them equally. The fact that Khushi was not apprehensive even once during the whole scene just reflects how comfortable they both are with each other, and how well they know each other. Arnav's nature to pick things that Khushi would enjoy and like, even when he wanted to be in control…I can't stop gushing over how well you've done Jigs! Only Devi Maiyya knows how you did it, but you managed to combine love and fluff with hardcore BDSM, and that made me turn into a puddle of mush AND look on amazon for big table fans, simultaneously.

    Dher saara love,

    Asha

    (IF UN: …Asb100…)

    P.S. I think this is what the original ASR must have been conceptualized as and "Na tumhari shakal dekhni hai, na tumhari aawaaz sunni hai, jab mein baat kar raha hoon toh meri taraf dekho" is the PG-13 version of "I want you, but I will punish you when we meet in the bedroom." LOL

    P.P.S I will never be able to look at jalebis the same way again. Why you do this to me Jigs? :'(

    P.P.P.S Happy birthday once again! Hope you had a lovely day! <3 <3

  19. Hi jigs

    1. Hi Anna… Please note I did acknowledge your request by sending you a email via wordpress with the password. I apologize if you have not received it. I will send it via my personal email. Also note this OS is being taken down next week, since it was a temporary post.

      It seems like I have offended you… but if you have been one of my “sincere” readers then you would know how engaging and welcoming I am with my readers. I value all of my readers for supporting me, if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be sharing my work.

      Thanks for reading!

  22. Hi… just recently came across your blog.. I used to previously read all your work on IF. I want you to know that you are an amazing writer and you have an excellent ability to express emotions in words which is the major grip holder for the readers. You are one of my favourite writers and I would love to read your one shot Mr and Mrs Raizada. My IF username is arvankhushi.

  23. Jigs, hi, what can a say about your stories, I am just speechless, I like the way you presented Khushi as an independent and successful person, your STRIPPED and your ongoing REVEALED are just too beautiful for words. welldone and keep up the good work. It’s just that I can’t seem to access your Mr. and Mrs. Raizada. How do I access it. Thanks.

  26. I have read all your work. Infact I have read Stripped twice. I loved it. Revealed is a very different concept all together. I love your writing and that is the reason I keep pestering you for access to Mr and Mrs Raizada. I sincerely hope that you will grant me access to this story. My mail id is hailstorm464@gmail.com.

  31. It’s really disheartening to see what had happened with ‘Revealed’
    I completely support your decision.I am a silent reader always admire your wonderful work. So addicted to it ..already missing.

  32. Dear Jigs,
    Just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading your stories. I felt as pained as you when I heard that Revealed had been plagiarised. As a reader I was also emotionally invested in that beautiful story. While I’m really glad that the plagiarist was caught it also pains me immensely that there is really no proper punishment to depraved souls like that copycat for causing so much hurt and heartbreak for you and your loyal readers.
    This note is just my way of saying that your writing is much appreciated. We have been thankful to you for sharing your brilliant work with us. I hope you will be able to put this unpleasant episode behind you soon an go back to writing more beautiful stories. Thank you so much once again, and sorry that we can do no more than provide you silent support in this case.
    Love and regards,
    Vinaya.

  37. Hey Di, I don’t know if you recognized me but I’m _aaliya from IF. I’ve read your stories and I cannot begin to express my love for them and you, for having written them so brilliantly. I was hooked instantly and read most chapters in one go. I am a university student which restricts my time to finish all stories without pauses as much as I wish to. I really feel sad for what happened with your story. It is such a mess but India-Forums is introducing new ideas to copyright your work, hope you look into them and decide to re-open your stories there.

    1. Hey! I have closed them due to my stories being plagiarized and don’t feel comfortable keeping them open. Stripped will be hopefully relaunched later this year. As for Revealed, I doubt that will open anytime soon.

      You can follow this blog for notifications, if and when I do decide to open.

      Thank you for your interest!

  52. Di I miss stripped so so so much
    Please Please Please post this story again
    I am daily coming and seeing your blog to check if you have reposted this
    If you ask me this story doesn’t need editing at all 😉
    Its one of the most beautiful stories
    I miss the shrewdness of Arhi..
    And Miss the well educated,successful,independent,loving,caring, Khushi
    I like this avatar of Khushi very much
    This story was like an inspiration to achieve and be a successful …
    And Arnav of his sory is also no less
    He gave all the freedom and suppor o Khushi
    And He is a great boss one could have
    The Shrewdness he have and the abiliy of him to think very fast and solve issues
    His ability to judge people and I like all his dialogues where he will say I believe that its the people who work for me who make this company successful.. And the efforts he undergo to hire Khushi..
    And the first chaper with first meet where there was an attraction and his slight flirting throughout and how he grabbed the opportunity and invited her for lunch along with anji
    And I like Arhi’s family too… Over all I miss everything about stripped
    Please consider this request and post this story soon

  53. Hi Jigs,
    Hope you remember me!!!! How have you been doing ? How is your work and life going on ? It has been a really very long time being away from IF and those wonderful works. I just logged into IF and tried to search at your old works which are completed now but then I did not complete reading them….I see you have a couple of kahaniyan however I could not access them now as IF gives me some weird error says I do not have the access to view those pages, so stumbled into your blog but then seems they are not accessible is it private blog?

    0

    1. Of course I remember you! Hope all is well, have missed you <3
      Life is hectic as always, but good, so can't complain LOL
      Yes I did remove my work from IF and blog due to plagiarism. For now they have been closed, though I do plan to relaunch Stripped next month. I also am writing a new story Temptation which is blog only. 🙂
