Belly. (sunday scribblings) Post 26

Thought I would do a Sunday Scribblings post for today and the prompt at Sunday scribblings is 'Belly'.

The word belly conjures up  mainly three  images in my mind..
Pot-belly, Belly-laugh and Belly-dancing

Of all of the above, the one I like most is of course a belly-laugh. A deep, rumbling belly laugh that spreads all over your body till you are shaking helplessly in laughter. Sometimes you laugh so much that your belly hurts. I laugh a lot and I laugh often. I feel blessed to be able to do that. I can laugh at any damn thing, including myself. (okay--most of the time) :) People who know me well, sometimes call me up, just because they know I will make them laugh.

And the one I  dislike most from all the above is a pot-belly.

And the way most Indians are, I would not be surprised if the pot-belly is a secret turn-on, for most of our people. The closet sex-symbol :) (How else do you  explain the burgeoning, ever-growing population in our country? You have a pot-belly? By Ganesha Jove, I find you sexy.. Come to bed :) )

As regards Belly-dancing, I first witnessed it in Egypt and I was mesmerized
If you have never heard of it, or never seen it, do watch this video.








I think it takes tremendous talent to do this.

 Now if only I could say honestly what Amanda Seyfried said (famously)
"I have belly-fat like evrybody else, and I don't want to be airbrushed on the cover of a magazine."

And till i can do that, I shall work towards this

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
