  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

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
