Through the eyes of a child

Isn't this a lovely picture? And what an unusual angle it has been clicked from! My 9 year old clicked this one.
The kids school is having their christmas break.Yesterday, to keep them "creatively occupied" ( I am totally against kids watching T.V, or playing computer games endlessly--though I do let them once in a way) I handed my son the camera and told him to take five interesting pictures.
Of all that he clicked, I loved this one.
Reminded me of what my house must have looked like to the lizard that came in :-) (see my post 'The uninvited visitor')

  1. You realy do manage to look at things in a different way..seeing the world through the eyes of your child or a lizard. I think it is one of the most important keys to world peace (if such a thing can be considered!) Learn to see the world through the eyes of your neighbour..try to understand their point of view..you made reference to this in an earlier post and I wholeheartely encourage you to never lose your hunger and passion to understand. We can make a difference!

  2. I totaly agree with you that too much of TV and games spoil the kids.You are lucky that your son really took the picture.If I was the kid who got the camera,I would have tried to dismantle it(shall I say reverse engineer!)and put it back...except that some left over parts will be there which I would never know where to fit!

  3. What a great idea - to tell your child to take pictures instead of watch TV! I'm sure your children are more creative than their tv-watching friends!

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.

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…
