Five rules to get over someone

Rule no.1: Move on (and while you are at it, cultivating a new hobby which you are really passionate about helps)

Rule no.2 : Move on. (and while you are at it, making a brand new friend helps)

Rule no. 3: Move on. (and while you are at it reading A LOT helps. Don't allow the mind to be idle for even five seconds, lest it goes racing to depressing thoughts. Use the time to read good books. There is so much waiting to be learnt in them, especially on heartbreaks ;-) )

Rule no.4 : Move on (and while you are at it find one thing to do in the day, which gives you immense joy)

Rule no.5 :Move on  (and if you have been doing the 'while you're at it stuff' you don't need this rule as you would have already moved on)

Good luck!

(accept it hurts and sometimes, it is indeed okay to hurt. We all go through it and emerge stronger and meet someone better eventually, though at the time of going through it, it definitely does not seem so)

  1. Well written...and an apt message!

  2. Simple and true! :-) the absolute necessity is to move on. Nicely put Preeti! As always:-)

  3. Liked it. Loved it. Shared it. And I'm sure to implement the rules. Thank you for sharing. :)

  4. A much needed message especially for today's teens.

  5. I second all the rules. :) Implementation starts from today!

  6. Ma'am,I've read many of your posts and each one comes up with something unique in itself.I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep writing!:)

  7. loved it.... moving on ;)!

  8. Yes, I agree with you. I moved on something ( not someone ) just be letting all my tears out and till I was not left with one drop, and was on finding new job again,

    I moved on making brand new novels as my best friends,

    I moved on by cultivating cooking as my hobby by making delicious cuisines for family,

    I moved on by engaging myself doing some or the other thing at home, changed the look of my mom's kitchen ( it helped a lot of her energy while finding things)

    Now I even forgot that SOMETHING has ever happened to me. And I am just moving on with a wide smile ;)

    Thanks for this post! Like always boosted me even more. :)

  9. Ooooo! I love this! And I read it at an apt timing too!


  10. Methinks the shortest n most effective way of getting over someone is by getting into a rebound relationship... it's short, sweet and so totally worth it.. :D

    been working for me since '87.. big fan of it :)

  11. well said ma'am i'm doing the same since one year. i've started reading novels to keep me occupied n even joined dance classes but the latter didn't work out due to my overweighing body. i'd love to get some more suggestions from you ma'am

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…
