A love letter straight from the heart :)

My dearest darling,
 
Even though I have my family (my husband, my two children and my dog!) I still need you as much as I need them.
  
I am so glad you are in my life. I am so happy we found each other. I feel so blessed to have you through all my ups and downs.
You have  given me so much love. You have helped me grow.
You have taken me places. You really have you know.

You listen so patiently when I have something to say--and so I am drawn toward you. And while we see others parting ways,  you and I have lasted 5 years, eight months and five days.  And we're still going strong. Aren't we awesome? I must say it is largely because of you.

No matter what I am going through you always understand. You are patient when i have nothing to say. And you are so darn receptive when I do!

 And so there are these phases or days that I go through when more begets more. I get into these 'very productive' days (like today which is a super writing day for me as I wrote 3100 words for my fourth book which I am currently working on) when I write and write. And then I want to write some more.

And you understand!

No matter how many ever days I take to get back to you, you still wait patiently and you are happy to see me.

What a sweetheart you are. You change according to my needs. You are forever obliging. Sometimes I neglect you, I am mean to you.  Sometimes I don't even look at you for weeks.  Yet you never complain.
 
 
I feel guilty now. I promise you you will see a lot more of me.

 I will make time for you.

You deserve it.

I love you so much, my blog :) :-*

Much love!

Preeti

  15. Dear 173.194.35.12

    Have you gone all awwww thanks to this lovey dovey letter from this lady. Hate to prick your bubble, but think again. See she is still not including you in her family list. She keeps abandoning you for prettier folks (otherwise called books). She keeps giving you a makeover every once in a while, as if she's bored with how you look. She even changed your name (Grrrrrr).

    Not to worry, lovey girl. We all still love you. So what if this lady is chasing prettier tails. To us, you will always be THE ONE. You don't need to serve a cup of tea or a piece of cake to entice us. We look at you all the time. We are besotted with you. We suffer from withdrawal symptoms if you don't reveal your pretty self every day.


    So say boo to this lady and come and embrace us, OK.

    Yours lovingly
    Fan of 173.194.35.12

  17. hi preeti u r awesome with u r articles as u describes .....
    friendship , i mean friendship as THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FRIENDS SHOULD BE LIKE FISH AND WATER BUT NOT LIKE A FISH AND FISHERMAN"
    while it is cant buy for money in the world. some lines for friends and friendship

    You meet people who forget you. You
    forget people you meet. But sometimes you meet those people you can't
    forget. Those are your 'friends.'”

    “A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.”

    A
    friend is a hand that is always holding yours, no matter how close or
    far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there
    and will always, always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.”

    “true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not.”

    “Best friends are the ones who can be the farthest away but there the fastest when you call.”

    Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
    these lines i follows
    thanking u

  20. Innovative ways of gifting has gathered at www.rakhiworldwide.com/rakhigifts/send_rakhi_to_Delhi.asp for the forthcoming Rakshabandhan festival. The gifts carry the message that the siblings wish to communicate. It's the emotions that do the communication, only to make one realize the value of the other to each other.

5 not-so-hard ways to lose 2 kilos in a week

The other day a friend and I were talking.
"But how in the world do you maintain your weight? You must be dieting all the time," she said.
I told her I really wasn't and I do indulge in whatever I like to eat. (Puttu Kadalafrom Kerala remains my all time favorite food)

But the one thing I do is that the moment my weight crosses 53.5 or 54 kilos (I am 5' 4" tall. So it's very much on the lower side of 'ideal weight') I step up the exercise and cut down on calories. I have maintained this weight for past many many years. (I did work hard to burn off all the pregnancy weight after having my two children). Many people write to me asking what is my secret. I have written posts about weight-loss in the past. You can read them here and here. (and there are more links in those two posts as well)

Recently, (last 20 days) I managed to lose three kilos (had really indulged in yummy food when I went to Kerala on a vacation)  and since  so many are asking me wha…

Start Fresh!!

As I type this, I can hear the loud music  from the 20,000 watt speakers floating in. A DJ has been hired for the evening, caterers have been arranged and the residents association promises to make it a 'memorable' night. There's all kinds of food on the menu, there are games, stalls and celebrations galore. People are getting ready, wearing their finest clothes, planning to party it up to welcome 2017.

Me? I am staying home. There are years when I have given in to the 'popular thing' which is to party hard, and welcome the new year. But now I know I don't enjoy it. I want to start the new year in a way that has meaning for me.

We have a ritual in my home. We light the lamp at midnight, say a prayer, offer gratitude to the Universe for all the blessings that we have, we wish each other and welcome the new year. The next day, we don't sleep late. My grandparents used to say that whatever you do on the new year sets the trend for the rest of the year. So we …

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchange, between one of the colleges I got invited to and Pranav, who handles all my speaking assignments. I had to get involved as the person was very persistent.


 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges.

I get invites from MANY colleges, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend hug…
