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.

    Heyy Anjali see if these small tips come handy and im sure your 7th one will be "THE ONE YOU CAN HAVE"!
    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.

  20. Hello mam following are the things ,which I want that my Mr Right should possess…..
    1)Respect:-
    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 one.so 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.
    3)Love:-
    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.

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
