Reflect. Blog marathon post 10

The prompt given for this Sunday at Sunday Scribblings is ' Reflect'. Here is my entry for it, which also serves as post for the day.

Reflect

sad Pictures, Images and Photos 

As I watch you stand on the balcony,
Looking out, pondering  over unsaid thoughts,
I reflect.

As I watch you have that cup of tea,
Saying a hundred things without speaking a word,
I reflect.

As I hear you lashing out in anger,
A hundred accusations flying wildly,
I reflect.

As I analyse the path I have chosen
And my conviction of sticking to it, even when lost,
I reflect.

But mostly I  think about all that has gone wrong
And all that could have been
I reflect.

And I weep.
For a love that died
But tears  continuing to flow are lost in  all the reflections.

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

What fun stuff do you do with your friends? (post 6)

All good friends have a favourite thing they do. It's their thing.

Ayan and his friend quote random movie dialogues to each other. One who fails to guess the name of the movie gets beer for the other.

What fun stuff do YOU do with your close friends? Tell me in comments, I would love to know.

And I'l be back ;-)
(which movie?) :)
Guess the name of the movie correctly and I will pick one person and send them a handmade card. :)
