  19. Frankly, I wanted to write this comment in Hindi Preeti 'cause English being the most populare language still lacks somewhere in true emotions and instant reactions at that jiffy! But obviously I can't :/

    LOVED THE COVER! It's so so pretty and among the best one's I have seen! And the same goes for the title too. :)

    Ordered. :D

  23. As much as I fell in love with its title when I first read it - 'Tea for two and a piece of cake', I actually savored vanilla cake with tea in my thoughts and I wanted to say, Whatta delicious title Preeti! And now when I saw its cover, the *pink* totally took me through! Absolutely loved it!

    Just as much as the loads of amount of luck that I want to wish you for it, I am eagerly waiting for my signed copy! :)

  31. ..it always starts with tea ( or a drink perhaps ) to get to know somebody. In that short span of time you know the conversation decides many things...



    sipping tea gives you enough breaks during conversation as well !

    The conversation is just right because the cup of tea is small...the timing is about right.

    a cup of tea is sometimes an excuse to get a business deal as well.

    O boy ! this can turn into a post as well - i will get to it.

    till then
    chow

    Thanks

5 not-so-hard ways to lose 2 kilos in a week

The other day a friend and I were talking.
"But how in the world do you maintain your weight? You must be dieting all the time," she said.
I told her I really wasn't and I do indulge in whatever I like to eat. (Puttu Kadalafrom Kerala remains my all time favorite food)

But the one thing I do is that the moment my weight crosses 53.5 or 54 kilos (I am 5' 4" tall. So it's very much on the lower side of 'ideal weight') I step up the exercise and cut down on calories. I have maintained this weight for past many many years. (I did work hard to burn off all the pregnancy weight after having my two children). Many people write to me asking what is my secret. I have written posts about weight-loss in the past. You can read them here and here. (and there are more links in those two posts as well)

Recently, (last 20 days) I managed to lose three kilos (had really indulged in yummy food when I went to Kerala on a vacation)  and since  so many are asking me wha…

Start Fresh!!

As I type this, I can hear the loud music  from the 20,000 watt speakers floating in. A DJ has been hired for the evening, caterers have been arranged and the residents association promises to make it a 'memorable' night. There's all kinds of food on the menu, there are games, stalls and celebrations galore. People are getting ready, wearing their finest clothes, planning to party it up to welcome 2017.

Me? I am staying home. There are years when I have given in to the 'popular thing' which is to party hard, and welcome the new year. But now I know I don't enjoy it. I want to start the new year in a way that has meaning for me.

We have a ritual in my home. We light the lamp at midnight, say a prayer, offer gratitude to the Universe for all the blessings that we have, we wish each other and welcome the new year. The next day, we don't sleep late. My grandparents used to say that whatever you do on the new year sets the trend for the rest of the year. So we …

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchange, between one of the colleges I got invited to and Pranav, who handles all my speaking assignments. I had to get involved as the person was very persistent.


 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges.

I get invites from MANY colleges, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend hug…
