Here is the writing Prompt for TOUCH Thursday Number 3.

Anjali is a character in the book. She has dated 6 men and rejected all of them. She is still looking for Mr.Right. She feels it is hard to get what she is looking for.

Her friend Sriram Surve, would say the same about women--that it is hard to understand women.

If you are a guy, write  3 things (or more!) that you really want from women.

If you are a woman, write 3 things (or more)  that you really want from men.

Please carry the TOUCH banner if you want Westland to consider your entry.

    3 things or more i really want from men:-
    1)He should miss me as if i was the one he could not have..
    2)TOUCH me like i was a newborn or a flower of spring or a butterfly's wing..
    3)THE feeling of love should be like maybe one of us is going to die tomorrow .
    4)ONE fight or ONE day of not meeting or anyONE should not come in between us.
    5)YOU & I should not be the case..It should always be "WE".
    6)CANNOT should'nt be the word between us. Everytime it should be CAN do(anything) for YOU.
    7)HAVE friendship,understanding,honesty,trust and attraction even at the age of 70 between us...

  16. Touch Thursday No.3

    The three things I want are

    1. Should be a Respectful person in the society because the one who gives respect gets respect.
    2. should accept me whatever I am. I have come in this world with a name and a fame, and its worth more than anything.
    3. Should listen to me and try to understand what I m trying to explain. Should not take decisions in a single go and try to understand the circumstances.

  17. Posted :-)

  18. Fun to post on the age old, ongoing discussion.. As John Gray says, Indeed, "Men are from Mars Women are from Venus"..

  19. posted---feeling great--- :) :)

  20. Hello mam following are the things ,which I want that my Mr Right should possess…..
    First of all I want that he should respect his ownself,because the person who respect & love his ownself can only give this things to others that’s what I believe.He should respect me for what I am, he should respect my thoughts,my opinion,& most important thing is that he should respect my parents & treat them with lots of love and affection,because whatever I am today is because of them and they are the first priority in my life & I really love them like any other mama’s & dyada’s girl. 
    2) Trust:-
    The relationship of any two persons is like a rubber band,holded by two of them,if any of them ignore or give up to balance it then that rubber band quickly will hurt the other trust play a very important role in any relationship to balance it from both the sides.In future I know I will never face such situation but suppose if the time comes where no one will believe or trust me for my certain dids or because of some misunderstanding then that time I want him to seat in front of me,hold my hands,look into my eyes & say that’’I trust you,I believe in you,& I don’t want any kind of explanation from you,just get one thing that I don’t know weither your shadow will remain forever with you or not ,but I will always be there for you in every situation of your life,our life.
    I think no one can describe this word perfectly as our heart feels.Its something wonderful,its something unbelievable,its something magical,its something beautiful.Don’t know how to describe it,but I heard that various kind of people do various kind of things to show their love to their love ones,but for me in love I want only one thing from my lifepartner that’s his precious time rather than any other expensive gifts or various kind of mug-up love speeches. 
    He should give his time or make himself available for me to take a long walk at night,to enjoy the drops of first rain in monsoon,to cook surprisedly when he want to make me smile, to share a cup of coffee with me & rather speaking mug-up love lines I just want him to say that’’ I genuinely care for you and love you,don’t ever leave me alone ‘’
    This kind of love I want from my Mr.Right 

    Thank you preeti mam for making us think about such a important topic It was a nice promt and had great time while writing.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.

I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)


How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.

I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
