Do you wanna partner?!!

One of the fringe benefits of having kids is that they are a great de-stressor (when they aren’t stressing you out that is!)

Yesterday, my two, invented this ridiculous game, which had all of us, rolling on the floor with laughter. The game involved a current bollywood number which is topping the charts. The song is choreographed in such a way, that the dance steps involved itself, makes one smile. It stars one my favourite stars-- Salman Khan (I find him really good at comedy. My husband insists that it is only his well toned body that appeals to me!) It also stars Govinda who is well known, in India, for his comedy sequences.

This is the song that I’m talking about.

The rules of the game were simple. All of us had to dance in turns, to this song individually. (and copy the steps in the song!) Suddenly, any one of the audience, would shout 'freeze' and we had to freeze at once, in that very posture. If you laughed or moved you were out!

None of us lasted more than 10 seconds!!
Getting out was really worth it! And I’m laughing uncontrollably, as I type this. If I wasn’t laughing so hard, I’d have clicked pictures. But if you watch the song and imagine me and the kids dancing like this and freezing, I think you’ll agree that the pictures wouldn’t have done justice!


  1. Haha how cute and fun! I love the game and wouldn't mind playing it as well. AWesome! surely one to let loose.

    ***One of the fringe benefits of having kids is that they are a great de-stressor

    I have to agree with that. My own two nieces proves that statement after a hard day at work many a times. Beautiful children.

    Lastly; I like the new 'notebook' look to your blog.

    Oh, wait-a-minute, one more thing. I have to sign in with my Google account in order to post my comment. Your blog hasn't always done that, right?

  18. Freeze!
    Now dance over to my place. I have awarded you with a little gift!

  19. Lol :). As kids, me and my brother also invented some ridiculous games, but yeah they were fun.

  20. Stacy: Oh yes--salman khan--yummy yummy!! ;-)
    Thanks for the compliments abt the new look.I have disabled annonymous comments--maybe thats why it's asking you to sign in with your google account.
    As regards freezing--my children convinced me tat I am dancing well indeed (flattery can get you anywhere!) and all of us had to do it in turns--so i guess all of us froze in ridiculous postures.

    Gillian: Thank you!Thank U!Coming right over!!

    Misti: :-)

  27. Hi, dear!

    I'm here today to thank you very much for having introduced Niall Young's blog to us the other day. I've been visiting his place as often as I can (sometimes even more often than I actually could, oh well) and I enjoy enormously his art work.

    I totally agree with you about the children being de-stressor... when they're not stressing us out. But I cannot afford to see this video for I've got dial-up.

    And last but not least, I liked very much your post From the Heart below.

    Have a nice and fun weekend :)

  28. good lord, the things kids make their parents do...

    Hershey: It was!

  30. Heh! This was funny, mummy of two. And yes, it is so true that children are stressbusters. I loved doing the pediatrics posting.

  31. I love your kids. They RAWK. This was a great video. I wish I could understand it.

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)

I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.

So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:
