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,

  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.

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
