3 songs. Blog marathon post 13

Here is a meme I created. Please feel free to use it in your blogs with a link back to this post.

In my third book, 'Tea for two and a piece of cake' all the chapter titles are songs. If we really think about it, I think there is a song for every stage in our life. There is a song for every person in our life. And there probably is a song which personifies how you feel about certain things in your life. Therefore this meme revolves around songs.

To participate what you have to do is give us three songs (be nice and post  link to the you tube video please!)  that would best  describe the following three things in your life.

1. Friends
2. Love
3.Parents

And here are my answers:

Friends:






2. Love: For me this is the ultimate love song :





3.Parents:





Strangely this is fairly recent Hindi song which one would not usually associate with parents. I have personal memories connected with this song--and I cry each time this song plays. I do love the lyrics too.



 Please do leave me a comment if you take part in this meme. Or leave me a comment even if you don't have a   blog. I love to discover new songs!

And hopefully you enjoyed my songs too.

Good night folks!

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:




You can pre-order the book here: http://preeti.io/lals

   Super excited about it and waiting to hear from you.

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…
