Cupcakes, Conversation and Chai



You are invited :)
 It is going to be a discussion on importance of friendship, modern day relationships, marriages, and how different living in a big city versus living in a small place is.


There is going to be Chai and cupcakes and of course conversation too.
Event is open to all but it will be really nice if you confirm, as Vani  Mahesh of easylib is making all the arrangements to see that everyone has a great time.

Those of you have read the book (and the acknowledgement section) will know Ramesh of Business Musings was one of the first to read the manuscript, even before I submitted it to the publishers.
I was delighted when he confirmed today that he will definitely be there.

Am looking forward to meeting you all.

Meanwhile, I have been making cards.

Sharing a few I made recently. (The people who ordered them as well as the recipients were delighted!)














And this is a card which was made to order,  for a little girl who turned seven:





Liked them? :)
Well, you know what to do! :)

  2. Sometimes I wish I can take a transfer to Bengaluru permanently!!

    I have lost so many occassions of meeting you in person and telling you how much of an influence you have been in my life :)

    Needless to add, the cards are beautiful...am keeping my fingers crossed. Hoping someday I get to meet you in person!

  5. All your cards are beautiful, preeti. Especially like the cutie doll one. I make some too once in a while, but more than making them, the delight on the recipient's face make them all worthwhile!!!! It puts a beautiful smile that comes straight from their heart. I can imagine how yours must have felt for them.
    Hugs,
    Gayu

  6. Preeti I really adore your fervor towards life but however I avoid I am becoming reluctant to life ... I find nothing but a dark gloomy person inside me...I may find little help with your perspective.. I find life all useless and a drag and what puzzles me is the fact i don't know why ?

  7. I have noticed the changed appearance of your blog today only, its nice. In fact, now it looks more organised. The cards that you display have a lot more meaning than being just a card. Its a symbol of attachment, love, dedication, efforts, perfection and lot many worth learning things.
    Thank you.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

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 exchanges.

 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 or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, 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 huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
