  3. what was it like before internet? well...it was world full of arrogant postmen and encyclopedias. The postmen knew that they are the only way you can maintain a long distance relationship... encyclopedias were the only way to get all the info you need without going through a lot of trouble.

    Then...it arrived. The internet. It humbled the postmen(though not all) and encyclopedias became equivalent to mere trophies to be displayed to guests.

    P.S., no, not your name, the other P.S., I am not actually back to blogging yet,just coming to update that art blog...
    its a new blog, like a small baby, needs to be fed or it shall die.
    Off I go... 4 days...

  8. Without the internet I would not have made contact with many of the people that are now part of my routine. I like to drop by and 'see' people like you! In this way it enriches our lives even if it makes other parts more frustrating at times!

  10. The inter web thingy is now so much a part of our lives ..we take it for granted I think. I am a richer person in so many ways because of it..being able to cite you as one of my best friends though we have never met is the best thing..and it gets better..as there are others out there who I can not imagine living without their words and minds being active in my life and time!I am daily so greatful to be able to do this!

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:




You can pre-order the book here: http://preeti.io/lals

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
