You can if you believe

just believe Pictures, Images and Photos

Apologies if you have come here looking for a post to read. This will soon appear in my 3rd book called 'A 2nd Jar of Bubblegums and Candies'. I had to remove it as making it available online would be very unfair to my publishers who have placed so much trust in me. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding. Thanks for continuing to read what I write.


  1. Agree with you 100% on that,PS.I just heard of a story of someone confined to bed for three years due to severe back problems,regain his health in 3 months time.What did his doc say?You have to absolutely believe in your recovery for any medicine to affect your body.Amazing indeed!

  2. Truly inspiring! :)

  3. very inspiring story.Even my dad and mom collect the best paper cuttings and keep it out and hand it over to me when we met.

  4. Awesome...Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve...So said William James...You should read his works; they are all about the power of words and thinking.

  5. Yes I truly believe that positive thoughts can bring positive results your way..
    Good article!!

  6. God i missed you when you were on a vacation!

    And yet again, your dad sounds so much like my dad! We're both REALLY lucky that way!
    Amazing post, very inspiring.

    P.s. Belated happy birthday to satish; read both the posts together and that one was very heart warming!

  7. inspiring story!

  8. inspiring story !
    "Think positive and positive things will happen to you" is something I try to live my life by !

  9. I love the part where you say... "My dad taught me a lot about life, about humility, about kindness , about patience and being nice to others." I miss these virtues so much these days... People are so arrogant, non-cooperative and have loads of attitude. Humility, kindness, patience etc. are considered so uncool :(

  10. Couldn't have summed up better. The power of the human mind has no limits. and once we put our mind to it we can do the impossible. This is just one of the many stories, and it would be wrong to call it a miracle. Its just human faith, on oneself and perhaps in God.

  11. Bingo.. So true.. I once came across this poster which said "If you think you can, YOU CAN!!". I always used to joke to my friends that my motto is my blood group :) B+ve...

    something that always used to puzzle me is that even with so many inventions and discoveries, we have not yet been able to use more that a tenth of our brain's potential..

    That addidas commerical was simply too good.. :D

  12. Off topic: Having multiple accounts is really a pain @ times.. commented from the wrong a/c again :)

  13. inspiring story!

    and i think you also inspire many many people in many many ways...

  14. Truly mind blowing :) For the same reason, I like the movie Munna Bhai MMBS !
    Even IMPOSSIBLE says I'm Possible !:)

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
