Tea for two (and a piece of cake) Tuesday No.4


So, my BIG day is tomorrow--the day when my baby goes out into the big bad world. Treat my baby kindly will you? :) If you still do not know what I am talking about--go here. 

I am excited and I will not have time to post the prompt of 'Tea for two and a piece of cake' tomorrow. So here goes:


 Can a relationship be like a tea-stain? Why or why not?

 Lovely thinking prompt right? :) (Thank me!) :) 

I am totally swamped with the book launch and will not be able to leave comments on your individual posts but I do read them ALL. Each and everyone. And I love how there is so much camaraderie now amongst the participants! 

 And by the way,I have another launch in Pune on 18th,6.30 PM at Crossword, ICC trade Towers, Senapati bapat Marg. If you are in Pune, come!:)

 Now, put on your thinking caps and dive into this prompt.

  and hey--wish me luck for tomorrow. I need it! ________________________________________________________________________________ ps: Interact with me on FB. I always reply back :)

  16. Just back from the Bangalore launch. Very nice and there was a queue of people waiting to get their books signed by Preeti. Preeti looked stunning, happy, proud, tired, beaming with a sense of accomplishment . The cakes were lovely, but the tea has morphed into juice :)

    Bravo Preeti. Wishing you much success ahead.

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.

That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
