I am like this Vonly :) 100% genuine

Yesterday was one of those 'near-perfect' days for me. I had a really great time, spending time with the family, going out, relaxing--after very long. (It has been so hectic)

I had asked my son to click a picture of me. I had worn my favourite shirt (yes, black--no surprises there), favourite pair of jeans and favourite shoes ( which to my surprise, is still not available India.).


Feeling quite pleased with the picture, I posted it on my FB author page, last night and went to bed. I always put the date on which my pictures are clicked because so many people presume that I have posted an old picture (why in the world should I do that?!) and ask me when the picture was clicked.

This morning when I woke up, I was surprised by the huge flood of comments that this pic (which I thought was such an innocuous one!) has generated. Most of them have been so complimentary  and have gushed so much that I think it will take a year for the blush on my cheeks to vanish.

But a few comments I got took the cake-- some people have commented saying 'Be careful folks--this is a fake picture. Don't fall for it' and 'Post your real photo--not somebody else's' .

LOL.What is fake?! My shoes? :) (Don't women in India wear shoes?!!) . And for the record, my shoes are authentic, I spent a small fortune on them, I guard them jealously and I absolutely love them.
Is my smile fake? :) (It is hundred percent genuine--it is my special moronic smile which creeps up automatically when it spots a camera pointing at me--it has been honed so well that it has now graduated to the elevated status of a reflex action.)

Are my jeans fake? No--I spent a small fortune on those too (Levis demi curve, skinny, crystal blue if you must know)

What about the shirt then?  That too  is 100% genuine--Van Heusen has a great range for women.

The car, the trees in the background and even my bag isn't fake.  Why, even the ground that I am standing on, is not fake .

It is all real, I can assure you that. Maybe I should wear a label on my forehead saying '100% authentic' :D

I guess I should just be thankful that though I cannot convince the non-believers, I can tell them through this post , that my books are real :) (Go on and click on the link if you don't believe me)

I am still so amused at the cynicism of some people! :)
I am real guys--believe me ;-)
I am like this vonly :D  (no, not a typo)

    1. Post was completely in a lighter vein Vishal!It is filed under 'funny/amusing'. It's a tongue in cheek kind of post. Of course, secretly I am as pleased as a punch that they actually think it's a fake. I was just showing off :)

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!
