Connect to others

Saw these words in a friend's instant message window (the one that lets you customise what message you want your friends to read when u are away)

"I guess when you are young you just believe there will be many people with whom you will connect...Later in life you realise it happens only a few times"

I feel thats so true..and when you meet someone you feel you have a connection with its worth doing everything you can to keep in touch..Even if it means a one sided effort, its still worth it..Because eventually the other person too begins to feel the connection and responds...

Then again,there is a difference between a one sided effort and obsession..The former enriches your life..The latter destroys you completely..Its important to make the distinction and draw the fine line...

And once you correctly makethat distinction,you have mastered the art of relationships!!

  1. Hi...
    I'm glad that you saw my blog and commented. You are right, we do seem to have very similar interests!

    I especially liked this post. A lot of times blogging seems like a one sided effort, but sometimes you can put yourself out there, then you meet someone new and that can be really nice!

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
