Myspace LayoutsMyspace Codes, Myspace GraphicsMyspace BackgroundsMyspace CodesMyspace Layouts


There was something else that I was going to blog about. I had the picture ready and the post too (in my head) when I got tagged by Roshan to do this meme.
I usually don’t do memes. But this one made me think.

3 things you should know about the number 3

1. The number of men who are in love with me at any given point in time
2. The number of women who want to kill me at any given point in time
3. The number of people my husband would like to kill at any given point in time

3 things that scare me

1. Truth
2. Lies
3. Lies that cover up the truth

3 people who make me laugh

The ONE would have been my dad.I used to be so happy when he was around, and we used to laugh so much together.But he is dead now.So my answer would be

1.Tyler
2.Atul
3.Gawpo
4.Mr.Fab (yeah I know its a three meme--but how can I not mention mr.Fab?He is just fabulous)

3 things I love
1.spending time with my kids and husband
2.spending money with my husband without my kids
3.conversations that stimulate (my mind.Just clarifying)


3 things I hate
1.Fitting into Routine
2.Fitting into predefined modes
3.Not fitting into clothes



3 things I don’t understand

1. Insensitivity
2. Chemistry
3.My husband—oh sorry, he is not a thing. Well, make my answer ‘fetish for routine’

3 things on my desk

1. My daughter (yes that’s where she is right now)
2.My laptop
3.A knife (I use it for painting. Just clarifying)

3 things I’m doing right now

1. Trying to calm my fighting kids(if they weren't so cute I'd have thrown them out of the window)
2. Trying to finish a painting
3. Trying to appear cool and unruffled by the above two

3 things I want to do before I die

1. Read all the books in the world
2. Watch all the movies in the world
3. Visit Niall

3 things I can do

1. Shock people by talking outrageously so they don’t know what to say
2. Shoot a perfect basket from 90 degree and zero degree angles (in basket ball. Just clarifying)
3.Paint pictures that make no sense to anyone else till I explain it.

3 things you should never listen to

1.People who tell you that you cannot do it
2.People who tell you that you are crazy or weird
3.People who say “I’m too old for that”


3 things I’d like to learn

1. To be patient
2. To paraglide solo
3.To control my temper

3 favourite foods



1.Puttu-kadala(click on the word for recipe and description)

2.Pasta

3.Any kind of vegetarian salad

3 people I'd like to tag

I wasnt going to tag anybody, but couldnt resist the temptation of passing on a task.Besides,I'd really like to know what they have to say.

1.Niall (he has a great sense of humour)
2.Tyler (he doesn’t write enough in his blog)
3.Gawpo (he is simply amazing)

Comments

  1. okay... 3 men are in love with you at any given time... assuming 1 is your husband... so your husband wants to kill the other two, but who's the third person he wants to kill?

    Promise me it isn't me, even though i'm so very irritating :P

    P.S. ( no pun intended ) - Niall is linking to the puttu kadala page - just wondered.. if it aint a mistake, wow, you have some funny nonhuman friends :D

  3. Tyler: You assume too much!Note I said 'number of people my husband would like to kill'I didnt say number of men! Let me double check--I'll ask my husband.Just to check, ok? I'd hate to see you dead :-)


    Roshan:Poor poor Niall!How could I tun him into puttu kadala! Thanks pal--have corrected the mistake, and also edited the post a bit.This is what happens when you do a meme when your kids are trying to kill each other.

  5. Oh my God, you're so funny!
    Your daughter in the desk just cracked me up! ;)
    I think you're quite good at this, most of the categories had an edge of contrast in them. Brilliant :)

  8. Puttu Kadala man here!..yes I'm quite a 'dish!'..You know..on the face of it I really like the idea of 'meme'..but once I've done one..I worry about if I've said the wrong thing or forgotten something important. I am therefore pleased that one can go back and change things.

    Preeti..what a wonderfully nice thing to say that you want to visit me before you die!!..hopefully it will not be the thing you do JUST before you die!!or I will have to assume that I was to blame!(my cooking is to die for!)

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

May drawing challenge! A story of two portraits.

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
