Together we can be alright. Post 10



Today has been a rough day for me. When I have had a rough day, I usually call up or text my friends. But I do not tell them about my day or how things are going wrong for me, at the moment. I see no point in that. Instead we talk about other things--either about some happy thing which is happening in their lives or some old memory and we laugh. That cheers me up too and things do not look at bad as before. But when I called up a good friend today, I felt even more down as things were going horribly wrong in my friend's life as well and there are no easy solutions.

So imagine my delight  when I read a totally  unxepected text from another good friend which said 

Cause I've been there before
And you've been there before
But together we can be alright.
Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold eachother till we see the sunlight
 I am embedding the song above.

I texted back saying "How did you know I had a rough day?"
Pat comes the reply " Real friends always know everything about each other :-) "

Thank Lord for real friends! When I count my blessings, I count them twice.
May they never change and may they always stay around to be the rainbow, after the rain.

Love and friendship do have a power.

  4. Friendship is a very very powerful thing. And I think in true friendships, there is something like telepathy as well :)

  9. Hi Preeti,

    It did happen to me many times, when I am low and wanted to speak to my husband, and I pick my phone and I get a call from him. It happened to him as well..friendship and love is great to keep us going.

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
