Meet me at Kolkata :)




If you happen to be in Kolkata on 26th April (Friday) I will be at Starmarks, South city Mall.
Eminent fashion designer Agnimitra Paul will launch ' The Secret Wish list' and I will be in conversation with Prof.Arupa Lahiriy

If you are on facebook, here is the link to the event page.

I also got featured in two interviews today.


Afternoon Voice (Mumbai) featured me.

Womens Web too has published a really nice interview with me, where they have asked some questions which are different from the ones I am usually asked. I enjoyed doing that one. They are also doing a book-giveaway and for a chance to win a copy of 'The Secret Wish list' all you have to do is leave a comment on THEIR post.(Not on mine!)

here is the link to the post:

See you soon!

And  if you can't make it, wish me luck please :-) (for Kolkata)

  11. do launch your next book in Kerala, preferably Cochin. thats where i live. And also because Kerala is one place that you have a special bond with, considering you grew up in Kerala.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion Femina. A clarification--I did not grow up in kerala at all :) Secondly I did two events in Kochi last month. At DC books and at Ritu Kumar store. Will surely be doing for the next book too. Thanks :)

  13. Hi Preeti,
    Well this book does not seem to be fulfilling 'my wish' of meeting you.. I wish I was in Kolkata when you would come to the 'city of joy' for your book launch :( .. But then I know you are going to write many more books and I will meet you again .

    Have a great time on your first book launch in Kolkata. I am sure you will come very soon with your 5th book too. Loads of luck and best wishes :)

    Love & Regards,
    Nitu

  18. Hi Preeti,

    I read the entire book - The Secret Wish List!

    OMG!!!! What a wonderful script and narration....I couldn't take my lunch once i started the book...it almost took me a kick on my back from my ever loving wife to realize its already 4pm...

    When i finished the book it was so refreshing....It was all abt the book, sentences and you...from out evening coffee time till our moonlight walk...

    It was so good! Thanks for your book and keep going...it feels great!!!!

    Congrats...May all your dreams be true ever...

    Wishing you from deep down heart!

    Regards,

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

Earlier, in press in…

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
