Just a face in the crowd


Photographs capture that unique moment, frame frozen for eternity. Each photo tells a story, creates a memory. I absolutel y love clicking photos, as you may know if you have been reading my blog for a while.

A few days back, there was a huge celebration for Onam happening in my residential complex. My daughter was a participant in the folk dance which they had organised. I did not want to miss it for anything in the world and I happily reserved my place with many others. It was a large crowd.

My husband was clicking photographs (as I could not click pictures from where I was sitting) and he must have clicked at least a hundred photos of her dance. After her dance, he was desperately trying to catch my eye across the room. Finally he managed to make eye contact with me and then he aimed his camera at me.

I smiled. He captured it.

Of all the pictures he has clicked of me, this one remains my absolute favourite.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
