A silent plea.

This is a post I wrote on 7th September 2010.

This one I wrote on  7th September 2011.

And tomorrow is 7th September 2012 and I am again typing this from a tiny village in Kerala.

Six years.

You would think it hurts a little less by now.
 It doesn't.
You just learn to hide the pain better.

Please say a prayer for me.
And for him.

I need it.
Need all your love, positivity and prayers.

It helps.

    Preeti, I will say a special prayer for you and for him. Just as you feel blessed to have had him as a part of your life, he would have felt blessed too. I believe that he is still watching over you, blessing you and feeling proud of all his little girl has achieved.

    I will pray that you are able to connect with him tomorrow. Just one soul with another. Without the limitations of relative existence.

  3. The pain of losing a loved one can never get less.... I will surely pray for him today, for his soul to rest in peace and smile each time you look upto him just to let you know how much he is proud of you :)

    Take care!

  25. Dear Preeti,

    I feel happy that I could at-least be of some comfort to you.And its proved that anything where Heart is involved...its never untouched!..it does work its Magic & my prayers were straight from Heart.

    One thing I adore so much in you is that you opened-up yourself for us to be a part of your Day - A day where you would have probably wanted to be with just yourself remembering all that you never forgot. And above all you were so dedicated us that you did reply to Each and all....I really ADORE you for this..for being so very Human...Loved you more!!...tc.

  26. Come and play with me
    My dearest little angel,
    I am here, there and everywhere

    The day you were born..
    I stopped dreaming, because
    All my dreams came true

    Those hands of you I held
    Are still very tender as your heart
    Those smiles and laughter
    Are celebrations for ever ..
    …….
    The “Fourth” for the entire world to read..
    Let me be your first listener….
    Read aloud
    I am here….
    Sitting besides you…..
    The same way I did
    When you were reciting
    Your first KG rhymes….
    Come and play…
    My heart ground is waiting…

    A little tribute to your father and your bond. He is always with you Preeti and feeling happy for you.

  27. Maddy: thanks so much.

    Ruchika: The words did bring comfort..and I think of him always! Every single day.
    It mattered to me that folks who read it were kind enough to leave words of comfort. they really help. I do mean whatever I write and say on the blog.
    So how could I not respond?!

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
