Doing time.Are we truly free?

In a philosophical mood right now...Are we truly free?Do we live life on our own terms, or are we constantly seeking to please others? Aren't we chasing the mythical happiness in external pursuits, without realising that true happiness always comes from within--from the little things that give you joy, not from the material things? You might get a very expensive gift for somebody and the joy you see on that person's face is real..but most of us fail to realise that it is only momentary.The emptiness soon returns--till the next 'gift' is received.

In the end, we have only memories to take with us.Make happy memories today.It is only these that last a lifetime.

Here's a poem I wrote on 15th May, this year.This was before my Dad passed away.And I do feel he lived his life to the fullest,--and so strange, he lived upto what I wrote in the poem. He passed away so very peacefully.Such a death is something everyone aspires for, but very few actually get. Lucky him.

Doing time

Doing time
In the prison of life
Condemned to live
And suffer
Until death comes calling
And finally decides to welcome you
All I ask
Is that when the time comes
Let go of the body,my soul
Let go gently
Don't cling so tightly
That you forget to live

There's some exciting news for you :) My new novel is releasing in November. The pre-order link will be up on October 7th.

The cover  (and the title) will be unveiled for the very first time in Birmingham UK.
I am a keynote speaker at the Birmingham Literature Festival.



Desi Blitzwhich is Britain's  award winning, leading  Asian web-magazine, has been co-ordinating the whole event, and have been corresponding with me over the last many months to make this happen.




I am very very excited about it. I will be travelling to UK in October. I used to live in UK, andone of my novels features Norwich, the place where I used to live.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
