Chase your dreams! Blog marathon post 27



Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick on Vimeo.


The above video is a short ten minute film about a little boy who is following his dream that I came across recently. It is definitely a must-watch. Do take ten minutes out and watch it.

If you have little kids, please watch with them if they are old enough to understand.

 Guess the amount that has been raised at the time of publishing this post?
A whopping  1,72,609.070 Dollars !!

Isn't the power of Internet amazing? But what is more amazing about the boy is he never ever gave up his dreams! I think we all have a big lesson to learn here from that little boy. Do check out the site here:     http://cainesarcade.com/

In another happening today,  one of the comments I got on my Facebook page (from a reader called Jaimin Udhnawala) said
 "Dear preeti, (tea for two & piece of cake) captivating story an underdog soul who carve out her way amidst all odds, loved it thoroughly cos somewhere it connected unswervingly with my own self as I always felt similar in my early years…."

The comment really resonated with me as it is indeed a story of an under-dog too apart from being a very unusual love story. It is also about following your heart and chasing your dreams, and not letting life's obstacles bog you down.

 In the book, Nisha (the protagonist) and Akash drive down to Pondicherry on the ECR (East coast road) from Chennai. I have driven down this road several times and I have described it in the book with a lot of love :)
It has been named among top ten of the most enjoyable drives in India. It is indeed extremely picturesque and I remember reading an article in one of the reputed travel mags, about it being one of the most scenic roads.

 Here is a beautiful song from a Tamil movie which somehwat captures the beauty of this drive. Watch this video (even if you do not know Tamil at all) to see some of the magic described in the book. Also the couple in this video (Jyothika and Surya) seem to be so much in love!

 I love this song! :)

  6. @forgottogrowup: There was a dust-bin on the road and he tossed it into that ;-) Showing a dust-bin in the video would have spoilt the cinematography of the song! :D

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
