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!)

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,
    Saravanan Kasinathan

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
