The One You Cannot Have (TOUCH)

And so my weekend whizzed by. I have no idea when it came and when it went or where. It was stealthier than a thief, dressed in black, blending  in with the shadows of the night, quieter than a cat's paws landing on cold cement floor noiselessly and faster than a flash of lightning on a dark, moonless, stormy night.

Mostly, I think, it was lost in the huge stir that the sharing of the cover page of my next title created.
I shared it on Facebook over the weekend, but in case you haven't see it, here goes:


It is a story of unrequited love. It is a story of a couple who were in a perfect relationship for four years, and who could not imagine  existing without each other. But life had other plans for them.
Sixty percent of the book is written from the point of view of Aman, who is the male protagonist.

I shall share the back blurb and a little more about the characters soon! Watch this space!

Over the weekend, I was also invited by IIM-Bangalore, to speak at  Vista 2013,their  annual international business summit.




Here is what some people said after the event.









The event was very well organised and executed. I enjoyed connecting with the other panelists.

So, now you know where my weekend vanished.

Though I did not get any rest at all, I am still happy.
And excited too! :)

For my last two books, I had started a 'Tea-for-two-Tuesdays', and  'Wishlist Wednesdays' where I had given  interesting writing prompts. If you have been a regular reader of this blog, you would recall how well it was received, and  what fun it was. This time I  am thinking of running  ' TOUCH Thursdays'. TOUCH is an abbreviation  of my new book-- The One  yoU Cannot Have.

Tell me if you would want that!  I will put up the writing prompts only if there is enough response and demand for it, as I will have to devote quite a bit of time to it. If you are game, I would love to. The prompts would be unusual, quirky, fun.

Do let me know your thoughts please. (in my comment box).


Shall be back again soon.
Until then,

Stay happy and  don't forget to smile!

Love
Preeti

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
