A fun meme about a lot of stuff :)

Hi there,
Its a long time since I did a 'Fun meme'. I have been doing such a lot of 'serious' writing these days (have already started working on my fourth book!) that I wanted to just do something on my blog which was fun.

So here is a meme from Sunday Stealing which appealed to me..I am doing only one part of it (It was in three parts).

1) Do you tend to hold grudges against people who have done you wrong?
Sadly yes  but only if I was extremely hurt. I do want to let go. Holding a grudge is like harboring poison in your soul. It's truly horrible to hold a grudge.

2) What is your astrological sign?

Saggitarius

3) Do you save money for anything? What?
Used to save when I was a student. I don't consciously 'save' anymore. Thank Lord.


4) What's the last thing you purchased?
Some superb DK books for my children from Pageturner Bangalore. (They have a good collection for kids)

5) Have you ever had a relationship that you realized was lust not love?
Of course! :) Don't tell satish ;-) :D

6) In a relationship?
Yes! :) Sweet Bliss! :)

7) How many relationships have you had?
Hahahaha.. Far too many to list :P Really!

8) What do you want to tell us about your day?

I learnt an important lesson today. To completely ignore those that attack you senselessly, out of jealousy mostly. Also learnt how important it is to not always take another person's advice and to listen to your gut feel.

9) Where were you yesterday?
Was at home. Did not step out yesterday.

10) Is there anything interesting within 10 feet of you?

Many things really. Books, a little wooden trinket box that my daughter made for me, my BB Bold 9900, My Ferrari cap, my silver ear rings, a bookmark I made, to name a few.

11) Are you wearing socks right now?
I am in India right now and it is summer. Need I say more?

12) What's your favorite animal?

My Dobe.



13) What is your secret weapon to get someone to like you?

Tell them I do realistic portraits and tell them a detail about themselves which I noticed. I also  slip in that I am a best-selling author. :P :D


14) Where is your best friend?
Norwich, UK


15) How did you end your last relationship end?

I did not end it. I dazzled him so much with my brilliance that he felt so inadequate and faded away. *shrug* what can I do?!  :D

16) What is your heritage?
This amazing country I am born into. Truly proud  to be Indian.

17) What were you doing last night at 12 AM?

Finishing some unfinished business. It's still unfinished. Sigh.

18) What's new?

I have been asked to write a serialised fiction by one of India's leading mags. Details soon!

19) What is the key to seduction?

Eye contact, Interesting conversation, Flirting, Wit, An awesomely intimate meal.
And if all of it does not work, try subliminal suggestions ;-)

20) What was the weirdest thing that happened to you this week?

My dog got invited to a doggie's birthday party! Not kidding. How weird is that?! :)
She did enjoy herself though. She even wore a bow! Not kidding :) Here is a pic:




21) You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?

Of course I will save the dog. Jobs will come again. A dog's life will not. And if my boss objects when I turn up dripping wet in the office, I would push him/her into the canal as well..and tie a stone too around their neck so they can't emerge :D

22) You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days? c) Would you be afraid?

a) Of course I would tell everyone.I would announce it on my blog, FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest--everywhere!  I would make the best of it, write a book about 'my last 30 days', get TV deals, sell movie rights etc :) Am anyway dying--might make the best of it.
b) Fulfill every wild fantasy I have ever had.
c) No--have never been afraid of dying.

23) You can only have one of these things: trust or love.
 Love ,always :) Who needs trust when you love with all your heart! :)

24) What's a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?

My English friends might want to watch this :) I always dance when I hear this :)




25) Who has your cell phone number (other than family)?

Many of my friends and a few people who I would rather have out of my life.

If you liked the meme, you can do it too! :) I had fun :)
Stay positive!
Love
Preeti

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
