  4. Hi Preeti,
    All my friends and family knows this, and today I have to Say this to you ..From the day, I have read the book, “Life is what you make it" and then Started following you on FB, your virtual home (Blog) and all your other books, I have wished just one thing; I wish I could be like Preeti Shenoy. She is special in all ways.
    Her prompt respond to my first post on her FB Fan Page, and then I followed her FB fan page to witness how humbly she responds to everyone who connects with her. But at the same time, she stands for herself very firmly and made things very clear on what she can take and what she will NOT. That is a really brave and inspiring act which has taught me to say a firm 'No’ to any one for anything that I do not feel is good for me and trust me it has made lots of difference to my life.
    I loved living the life of Ankita ,Nisha and Diksha . It made me realize that life is not all bed of roses but is still livable and one should live it to fullest. Her blog is like a window to her life .I have read each and every post of it and enjoyed it thoroughly. I have wanted to write comment on each post but then have been reluctant to do so many times as her fans would have already written it before. And I get short of words to express myself.
    I love the way she look, the way she is so expressive and caring for her family and always give me a feeling..’Oh, I will do the same when I become a wife/mother. :) ‘And I love her beautiful house full of books, her kitchen that she have blogged about once, her balcony makeover, her lovely green garden(not just in Bangalore but every where She had stayed), her card , her dog..I can just go on.. I love absolutely everything about her. My favorite are all her post tagged under ‘Mama Moments’.
    I will always cherish the time I spend with her at her Chennai book launch. When I hugged her, all I could say was “Oh My God!! “.
    P.S On this day and every day I just want to say a big thank you for being there in my life like a pole star. I am so glad that I know you. You are an angel to me.
    Loads of love and best wishes,
    Nitu

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!
