  17. Preeti,

    Those are some colorful pictures. What are the berries in the first picture?

    I like your idea of Wordless Wednesdays. I guess it also makes posting for your blog a little quicker, does it? ( I have a blog and I feel that writing and getting to the final draft takes me more time!)

  22. Lovely Pictures, Preeti. I liked the last one especially. To me, Autumn is a pleasing season with breath taking hues.

    ReplyDelete
  23. As the autumn nip in the air starts to become stronger and stronger, what we all need is to get the fire going, draw up the chair, sip hot tea and read Preeti's blog. Thanks to wordless wednesdays we get some lovely photos.

  24. With no offense to autumn and its fans, I feel a sort of sad sluggish feeling creeping in during Autumn as it would be Winter soon.
    Not that I have any issue with it,excpet I am not quite used to the wrath of the cold season.
    I love Spring annnnndddddd its "Spring here" :D
    may be I should post some optimistic spring snaps :)
    feels so new and fresh!

    Ayyo, meje deva!! Bhornu kashta jalle mu!! Jambu nayi!! :D The "red avvalo" used to grow in my granma's garden. It is not sweet that you can eat it off the tree, but avvalo chutney is one of the bestest in the whole world. Unfortunately, you don't get to buy this in shops! :(

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
