Tweet tweet (Post 28)

Since many of you who read me here are not on twitter, I thought I would compile a list of all the interesting stuff that i tweeted over the last few days, for today's post.

Here are the tweets that I sent out or retweeted which struck a chord in me.








And finally this one:

    1. No no!! I don't cross-post my twitter to FB! :) But I cross-post what I put up on my FB author page to twitter.

      Twitter is really awesome because you can connect with those that stimulate you. You can pick and choose who you want to follow and best of all no-one is anyone's 'friend' on twitter :) (yes--there are a lot of twitter crushes happening though) Twitter is entirely a different world.

      Both serve entirely different purposes--and I really wouldn't want whatever I post on twitter to be posted on FB :) It would be like eating how white rice topped with chocolate sauce :P :) (It just doesn't work)

  4. Thanks for the whole collection under one roof.
    I expect another quote from you, which really impressed me a lot.
    "If someone not responded your call or text, leave them and let it go. They made a space for someone in the future".
    I used to remember this quote whenever i hated by some one. I love this quote.

    Thanks,
    Prabhu...

    1. Hey prabhu
      This is not the whole collection at all!!! Oh no..I just picked some random ones which struck a chord.

      The whole collection would be more than 16,000 tweets!

      yes, some of the quotes are great :)

  5. Since I am not a Twitter fan, I'll construct some imaginary tweets

    - I just brushed my teeth
    - My left toe itched. Felt good scratching it
    - @PS sent me a SMS. I replied to it
    - I have 24 mails in my Inbox including five from Nigerian bankers

    And such other earth shattering and awe inspiring news that is so characteristic of this medium. By the way , why is something that is on Twitter not a Twit and instead a Tweet ???

    1. Hey Ramesh,
      The good thing about twitter is one does not need to follow Twits who tweet things such as my left toe itched. Like any social media, you can CHOOSE how *YOU* use it.
      You could follow BBC on twitter @BBCWorld and get updates of what is happening in the world.(No need for television or to login online. All you need is your phone.) Or you could follow Economic Times @Economictimes on twitter and get the updates of what is happening in the business world.

      Or maybe you want to read great articles which relate to your field of interest on Huffington post, or perhaps TIME (whom I follow).

      I have connected with some truly brilliant minds on Twitter (some really big names internationally.) --and am in regular touch with them, thanks to twitter.

      It has not only helped me grow as a person, but it has also taken me places, professionally.

      No matter how busy one is, it takes a few seconds to type out a 140 character message. And what is amazing is the content that can be sent out in those 140 characters.

      Personally I have retweeted many many times, requests for blood, when a person is in dire need of blood, fighting for their life in a hospital. Such tweets go viral within a few seconds, and the speed and quickness of the medium to bring about action is just unbeatable.

      There is a project called blank noise on twitter which speaks up against street violence. There are many organizations such as Goonj which mobilize resources, through their tweets, in times of tragedies like the recent one in Kedarnath. One tweet and the action is swift, within minutes..as it gets retweeted many times.

      There is so much other good stuff happening on twitter like initiatives being taken for child sexual abuse, initiatives for animals being abandoned, NGOs working with under-privileged for the cause of education etc.

      When michael jackson passed away, I got to know within 6 minutes of his death, even before the news channels went public with the news.

      Twitchhiker is a book written by Paul Smith, who used twitter to travel around the world.

      There are just so many uses and possibilities that twitter offers, that if I start elucidating, it would be another blog-post by itself.

      Yes, the tweets that I have show-cased here, might not particularly be 'news-worthy' or even important.I just picked the ones which i wanted to share on my blog :) (which has never featured current affairs anyway!). They are not to be taken as representative sample of what the twitter world is all about.

      Now excuse me, I have to tweet that I answered Ramesh's questions on my blog,becuse it is really important for me, to share this piece of earth-shattering information with the world ;-) And oh yes--my left toe is itching too :D
      :) :D

      Love
      Preeti

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
