Wish list Wednesday No.4

A very happy new year to you all!
 Hope you have a wonderful, peaceful and a joyous 2013.

Welcome to Wish list Wednesdays.  In case you  are new and do not know what Wishlist Wednesdays are, it is a writing prompt hosted by me, every Wednesday, in association with Westland Books, the publishers of  my new book 'The Secret Wish list' which has been getting some great reviews.

Each wednesday I shall host a writing prompt and you can answer the questions in your blogs or in my comment box. One person wins a copy of the 'The Secret Wish list' which will be mailed to them by Westland.

I have really enjoyed reading all the entries in the previous prompt.
I have also managed to leave comments on many entries. (I might not have been able to leave on some for technical reasons--but I did try).

This time, the winning entry is :

  14. I Wish Everyone loved the way everyone wants to be loved. I wish everyone loved the kind of life one is living. I wish everyone loved the numerous blessings one is surrounded with which always go unnoticed. I wish everyone loved to see others being loved. I wish everyone loved to spread a smile on a stranger's face. I wish everyone loved to grow up, to feel the essence of letting go, to acknowledge the cure behind moving on. I so wish everyone loved to care for those who don't care. I wish everyone loved to love without expectations. I wish everyone loved to realise the beauty of nature. I wish everyone loved to be happy for the little things. I wish everyone loved to help a friend in need. I wish everyone loved to listen without judging. I wish everyone loved to light up someone's world. I wish everyone loved to sacrifice for others. I wish everyone loved to lighten the burdens of a heavy heart. I wish everyone loved to respect everyone. I wish everyone loved to do something personal between him and the Creator. I wish everyone loved to see how easy it is to embrace the good things. I wish everyone loved to eradicate evil from the world. I wish everyone loved to be secular. I wish everyone loved to love the not so lovely things of the world.. And I wish, I so wish everyone loved to express gratitude without expecting others to return the favours. I just wish everyone loved to see the world in a simple, uncomplicated, natural way! :) :)

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!
