Guest post by Satish!!

We celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary on 27th April. I wanted to make this post a memorable one.So I asked Satish if he would write a guest post on my blog--and he liked the idea! So here is the first post written by him.
We are heading for a beach resort to celebrate. (Just the four of us--somehow we both didn't want to leave the kids behind. ) See you all when I get back and have a great weekend!
Cheers

**************************************************************************

PS. It’s 13 years since I got married to her. 13 years is indeed a long time and in legal parlance one more year and that would amount to life imprisonment.

This is indeed life imprisonment though in a very pleasant way and yes there is one, regret that I do have.

Why didn’t I meet her earlier! Sounds clich├ęd indeed. But when you have a friend as good as her and the best companion one could ask for such questions are logical. The 13 years have had their share of ups and downs, no doubt. However when I look back I can only remember the ups.


What can I say about PS?! She is the most straightforward and honest person I have met – calls a spade a spade and at times brutally so and I like that. She is bubbly, vibrant and full of life. Motivates you and brings out the best out of you – made an artist out of even a lousy guy like me. The saying 'Behind every successful man is a great woman' is so apt. She is the best friend one could ask for – loyal and makes an effort to ensure the friendship is kept alive. She is a radiator – radiates energy and acts invariably the agony aunt on whose shoulders everyone including me seems to cry on. She writes beautifully and brings out thoughts and feelings in a unique manner.


A wonderful mother, a fantastic wife, great human being and a superlative friend – that sums her up.


One gets so caught up in day to activities and sometimes tends to forget small things such as just saying ‘Thank you’ to someone who does so much for you and contributes so much to your life – you just take it for granted. Guess there is no better way of doing so than by telling it directly in front of the whole world (PS’s blog is indeed a big part of her world and a large part of the world also seems to think likewise). Thank you my friend!!!!.

And while on the topic of world as I once said to PS a long time back


“To the world you may just be a somebody , but to somebody (me) you mean the whole world.”

Thank you PS for everything.

--Satish

  3. First of all congrats to the fantastic couple out here.....praying that you'll see many more such wondrous years ahead and of course....traverse many more beaches...;)

    And Satish....all that you said, i'm sure reflects on her too....'cos no partnership can run along without the support of each other...and having read P's blogs we all know how much of a well needed support you've been to your family.
    Your comment in the last...summoned it up beaustifully.

    ALL THE BEST FOR THE YEARS TO COME

  42. Next thing I guess would be asking ur children to write "My mumma and pappas wedding day" Their starting punch line would be
    "Unlike the day they got married, this time we were there to witness their celebration" :D
    My wishes to u and the cute kids u have.... Keep that radiator working....

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…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
