Magic of faith

little girl
Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  1. oh what a beautiful post about great mommy power at work - thanks for sharing these beautiful moments. I would like to be six again as well - to whole heartedly believe in something like that and then make it happen by sheer power of believing.

  2. oh my.. I've got goosebumps.. this is amazing.. :)
    Faith does miracles at times :)
    So sweet of the sun not to show up ;)
    I too love children that age :D In fact I sometimes feel children should be at least 3 yrs old when born ;) and let's hope little Purvi never learns to lie :-S

  5. Pink Dogwood: How trusting they are--How they believe in you.It is so humbling, isn't it?

    Shruti: She will change for sure.But for now, i cherish it.

    Brocasarea: but why 'lol'? Truly it was a magical moment. I guess only a parent or a woman would understand.

    Suma: Oh yes--how they believe you.

  7. I love that age too...my younger one is similar to that age...and I know what you're saying.
    The faith in which they put themselves into our hands...its so heart-tugging.
    I can imagine the "my mommy bestest" scene...
    aaawww....*hugs* to lil P...and may her faith remain strong always

  8. Aww! That's so sweet! And you have such a sweet, precious little girl! How I wish our kids can be innocent and sweet like this forever!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Totally, I know what you mean!!

    How sweet is she? *shakes head in disbelief* ;)

  10. Wow it was such a sweet post.. all kids r adorable and lil girls especially.. Just love them :)

  11. Lovely, so sweet and innocent. I really hope the sun was not that bright that day, it is not fair for the kids to stand under the sun for so long.

  12. One doesnt have to be six to see/feel thier amma's miracles! I feel it still. Rather I feel it now more than ever. Faith really does move mountains! For you it moved the clouds to a favourable position :-)
    A GREAT post

  13. Awwwwwww...My gosh!! How sweet!!

  14. I absolutely love it whenever you write about kids, or about the bonding between a mother and her child. Mainly bcos many things which you communicate thru 'mama moments,' I can relate to my own life a well. :)

    I too know a mother and her child just like Atul,Purvi and their mom. The mother is as caring as theirs, but the son can't claim to be as sweet as Atul or Purvi.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You just can't beat an 'aaaww' moment like that, can you?

    Great post, PS.

    :-)

  16. Gosh...that so sweet!

  17. You know I still believe that my mom can talk to the Sun and other higher powers - what she says always comes true! Some things like a moms faith never change i guess, regardless of whether you are 6 or 60! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I guess things work that ways...Their innocence and trust is always rewarded :)

    Blog hopped from someplace.You write well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wanna have a lil girl just like Purvi :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wonderful post.
    This would make a great children's book. I could envision all sorts of things that would make the sun not shine as hot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. :( How bad of me asking the Sun to be hotter so that white chiks can be more open with their dressing... I should have considered sweet children like ur daughter too....
    From now on, I am offering my cap to any small kid who's walking in the hot sun.... :)
    All the best for whatever she is doing in her sports day function....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awwwwwwww..SOOOOOOO SWEET!

    u know i was begining to get skeptical n cyical n say today's kids no more have that innocence we used to have and they are missing the most imp part of childhood...but ur li'l one is making the best of it..thanks to her gr8 mommy!

    I'm so Jealous of that innocence..when everything is taken at face value and one doesnt know wat it is to read btw lines or lie!

    ReplyDelete
  25. that was sweet post!
    I can exactly relate to you. I have a 6 year old son too...Many a times I have wanted to be kindergartner.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Such adorable kids you've..would love to meet them some day..
    Preeti,you write so well...but of all ur posts,these 'Mama moments' are the best,I must say.They overwhelm me so much.

    ReplyDelete
  27. A nice way to describe a 6 year old ;)

    Now, can you please make the sun go away here in B'lore too :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awww! You are such a good mummy. Six is a great age. I loved it when Olivia was six. She will be eight next week. I had to check the calendar to be sure because it seems with her attitude lately she is going on sixteen! I hope it gets better ;P

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)
