  2. The book had everything that a women can emotionally go through. I got to learn from this story 2 things - that maturity is not by age but by experience. Secondly, relationships do work well without tagging thm wit legal or society expects to be. Thanx preety for a good story.. Keep up ur work.

  10. i read tea for two and a cup of tea and life is how you make it within a week. the first read was enjoyable so i took out the other book as well the very next day, and the other book was so engrossing and sort of worrying too- for the girl, for myself. But it was wonderful reading it.

  11. “Tea for two and a piece of cake, plus, of course, conversation. These small moments are what make life worthwhile.”
    Seems like just a small set of statements, but the meaning goes deep. In the book, Nisha shared her miseries with Mrs. B over a cup of tea enjoyed with a chocolate cake that really helped later to progress in life.
    What one needs today is somebody to listen to us. When we are lonely and depressed, if there is someone we can share our mind, it means a lot! Sometimes a small conversation over tea solves many of the problems. A little sweetness of cake and the anti-stress capabilities of tea enjoyed with a true friend can really make life worthwhile!

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…

I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

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 exchanges.

 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 or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, 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 huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
