Tea with me?

To celebrate the fantastic success  as well as the six month anniversary of my third book 'Tea for two and a piece of cake', my publishers Random House India have come up with a unique contest where 5 people get to have tea with me at a lovely location.

Here is the  link to their post which gives all details. While the contest is open to everyone, do note that the travel expenses to the venue will have to be borne by the contestants..Therefore it is actually a treat if you are Bangalore based. :) Living in the same city as me, has to have some small advantages right? :)

In another exciting thing which happened to me, Zee Business (Zee TV's business channel) interviewed me as a part of a story they are doing on the popular authors in India today.
Here are some still-pictures from the TV shoot.





 They  asked me interesting questions and they even shot some footage of me with my doggie who decided to co-operate and she was camera happy and enjoyed every bit, unlike her owner who found it all strange :) I have no idea though how much of it would be lost in editing.

You can catch the episode on Saturday 11th August, at 8.00 PM  and there is a repeat telecast on Sunday at 11.00 am and 5.00 pm. The name of the show is 'Weekend edition'.

Youth ki Awaaz (which reaches out to 4.5 million people every month)  published an interview with me, yesterday. This is the link, if you want to read.

I am slowly replying to the tonnes of mails which I have been getting regarding my books and cards. I thank you all for the patience. If you haven't got a reply from me after 20 days, please do resend. I might  have over-looked.

Will post again soon.

Till then, stay positive and happy!

  5. Congratulations on all these achievements Preeti. 6 months Anniversary, interview for Zee and yet another one on Youth ki Awaaz..... the list seems endless.

    Amidst all your success I feel really proud to have bagged a chance to publish your interview on my blog here. Thanks a ton Preeti for giving me this opportunity.

    I had recently been to At INFINITEA on Cunningham Road, Bangalore, the venue for winners of this contest. The special green tea that me and my hubby bought from here was like weighed and costed gold! But superb place to have 'A cup of tea and a piece of cake' with Preeti.

    Fingers crossed and just hope I get this awesome chance to meet you.

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

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…
