Missing you.


I miss you when I wake up in the morning, and instinctively reach out to your side of the bed, to ruffle your hair.

I miss you when I go into the kitchen and make two cups of coffee, without thinking, and then remember you are gone.

I miss you when I lay the table for breakfast and lay a place for you, and then remember you are away.

I miss you when I iron the kids school uniforms, because you usually do it for me.

I miss you when I login to Orkut, because you usually say “please leave it on for me.”

I miss you when the kids leave for school, because you usually hug them, and whisper a ‘magic mantra’ in their ears, so that they have a good day.

I miss you when I read the newspaper, because there would usually be a story that I would want to share with you.

I miss you when I pick up the phone to call you, and I realize that you are in a different time zone, it is still night for you and you will be asleep.

I miss you when I have my lunch, because I know how much you would have enjoyed what I cooked.

I miss you when the children come back from school, because I usually would have called you up, to narrate in detail, what they did.

I miss you in the evenings,because there is no fourth person to complete the teams, to play “Trivial pursuit”.

I miss you when we have dinner, because there is no one to narrate funny stories and make us laugh.

I miss you when I read to the children, because you usually listen to it too.

I miss you when I go to bed even though the children are happy that they can have mummy all to themselves and cuddle up next to me, each on one side.

But most of all I miss you so much, simply because I love you.

More than you will ever know.

  1. My Darling, You have said how you miss me in quite a few ways. However I miss you in a million, trillion, bullion ways every nano second and every minute when I am away from you. I miss you when I am in Pune, but in office. I miss everything about you and when I see another family close by, miss you even more and feel jealous that I am not with you. You are a special person and mean the world to me. The only good thing I guess of being apart is the fact that we grow even closer each day. I cannot have asked for a better partner, person or friend with whom I would have liked to have spent the rest of my life with. Just another 24 hours and I am back home to eat your head. I adore you and care for you. Love ya loads.....

  5. My hubby does the ironing too! *grin*

    Isn't it grand to be in love with someone that brings you such joy... even in the simplest means. I am so happy that you have that. But, of course, sorry that you must be apart. I hope he's back to uh, 'eat your head' soon.

    Um... Hey. That doesn't hurt, does it? *chuckle*

    By the by--Your kids (snuggling with mummy)... that made me smile so wide. My kids are so very much the same way with me. They love the opportunity to have mommy all to themselves. :)

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.
(Yes, I will be travelling to Norwich too, later, after the cover release).

You can watch the unveiling of the cover --LIVE by following myFacebook author page. (Hover over 'like' and enable 'see first' to not miss any notification)

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…
