The (Secret) Wishlist Wednesdays

Last time, when my last book (Tea for two and a piece of cake came out, I had hosted a writing prompt called 'Tea for two Tuesdays' which got a huge response.

Following the success of that, I am now hosting  'Wish list Wednesdays'.

It will run till the end of  January. Every Wednesday, starting today, there will be a creative prompt.

My publishers Westland will pick one entry every week and will send them a copy of my latest book, The Secret Wishlist. :)

What do you have to do to take part? You just have to answer the prompt on your blogs and leave a link, linking the specific post where you have answered the prompt in your blog, in the gadget below. That's it!

Simple isn't it? :)




Of course, I would be delighted if you are kind enough to include my new Banner too in your posts, which I put up below:




 The creative prompt for today is

  The three things I badly wish I could have are..................................


Use as many words as you want! Say as much or as little as you want. If you are participating, you can let all of us know by leaving a link. (do not link your whole blog, just link the specific post). In the 'Link Title' field, use either your name or the name of your blog, whatever you prefer.Please do not post any random links that are not relevant--they will be promptly deleted!

Hope you enjoy answering the prompts :)
And yes, if you don't have a blog and still want to take part, please feel free to use my comment box liberally or frugally ! Whatever you prefer :).

Looking forward to hearing  about the three things what you wish to have! (Be creative. Let your imagination soar!). And be nice and leave me a comment after linking please :)

Have fun!

    I am absolutely awed by the number of things you do. The human mind has immense potential & we have many talents. It is all about giving the right priorities and channelizing the potentials in the direction of each talent. You are doing a wonderful job. Just love the way you do it. All the best :)

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!

Get it from your local bookstore or order online and pay cash on deliver:  http://preeti.io/trb
