Achille's heel

He looked hard

Trying to find

An Achille's heel

Bits of behind



He failed to see

I'd bared my soul

He could poke into my heart

And feel

The whole

  8. You say so much more between the lines!I like it very much. The photo on first glance reminded me of a candid photo of a hollowood type film photo magazine.."here's Audrey Hepburn in the Rue Monmartre on a rare break in filming"..but on second glance..is it you talking to a dog?

  9. Niall:I'm so flattered,being compared to Audrey Hepburn.Yes, it is me.That was a stray dog, which had a burr stuck to its coat, which I was removing.Atul clicked a picture.I liked it a lot.I cropped it in Picassa.
    You do know how to read between the lines.Really well.
    Unfortunately most people who read the poem did not understand it.(They sent me messages asking to explain)

  12. Your heel IS your whole. A very lovely poem.

    But I think the earrings could have been JUST a tad bit larger. And by the way, what shampoo and conditioner do you use? I think I saw that sweater in the 2000 catalogues.

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…
