    And you know what, thank you for giving me the idea of writing (c) and do not copy below the poem. I decided to got for it after I indeed had one of my poems copied :|

  7. I really do not know what magic you have that you simply string together some simple words and weave out something that is "fantabulous".

    I have to ask a question regarding copyright. Is it simply enough to put copyrighted below the post or you have to actually register it?? i do have some work planned and feel simply adding copyrighted may not be enough!

    Thanks for the morning dose :) :)

    cheers

  11. Reflections: Thank U Nancy. You really have been one of my biggest 'encouragers'. Much appreciate it.

    Arnab: Thank you. Appreciate your letting me know.

    Nidhi: thank u!

    Shantharam: Thank you. Different countries have different laws regarding copyright. It is complicated. If you google it you'll get all the info you seek.

    partywithneha: As flattering as it is supposed to be, to be copied, I really abhor it. I cherish individuality. Glad to 'inspire' you..Did notice that you put a graphic and a copyright symbol exactly in the same manner that I do for all my poems. Therefore I have felt this compelling urge to change my format in presenting my poems.

    Santasizing: Thank you so much.

    Ashwini: i wish you were Bon Jovi or aerosmith! :P :) Thanks for that fabulous compliment.

    Monika; thank you so much.


    Ajay: Thank you :)

  22. Hmmmm...while I read your poem, I'm imagining myself sitting in a cafe sipping espresso, staring in space and thinking. Why? I don't know :)

    Beautiful. I love your imagination.

    :)

  23. Yes, the same words can travel those distances and you are left wondering whether it is the time that give them their meaning and significance. And yes there always are actors involved too.
    And I think it was more about beautifully conveying those very thoughts, than the imagination, that is so remarkable about the poem :).

  24. Beautifully done. It feels like there is a deep story behind this. Like the characters need to speak.

    Hi Preeti, I have changed the "copyright" message on my poems. Since the copyright message is a universal symbol, I am unable to change 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:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
