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

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
