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

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
