TOUCH Thursday No.4 (and results!)

Hi there,

So here are the results of TOUCH  (The One You Cannot Have) Thursday Number 3. If you are new to this blog, check out THIS post which tells you all about Touch Thursdays.

The winning entry which gets the TOUCH mug is

http://lovingthysoul.blogspot.in/2013/10/what-women-want_21.html

written by Megha Sinha

Hearty congrats Megha! please send me your email id and Westland will get in touch with you.




The other entry which got a special mention (as it came very close to winning)  is

 http://geevika.blogspot.in/2013/10/thats-like-my-man.html

written by Geevika Bhatia.

All the others scored more or less the same marks.

One of the things that the judges (from Westland) observed is that nobody had anything new to say other than trust and unconditional love.(which is what are the foundations of any loving relationship--so I guess all of you were bang on there).



One of the things I observed this time, was that very few men took part. :) I wonder why :)

 In case anyone wants to read what I wrote (some time back) on 5 things women want from men, check out this post of mine.


Anyway, here is the writing prompt for Touch Thursday Number 4. 

Describe your idea of a perfect date. (Who would you date?  You can give a fictional name if you don't want to use the real name. What would you do? How will you make it special? How would it end?)

Go on--let your imaginations run. You can date ANYONE. (yeah, any of these men or any of these women  depending on your sexual orientation ;-)  You can even date your ex.  Or soon to be ex or yet to be Mr. or Ms. Right. You can date a politician or an altruist or a space alien or a character from a  book. ANYONE!)

 Write as much as you want. Or as little as you want.

But write a post that makes us all go awwww and believe in love :)

    Hey Preeti, it's a very nice prompt and sounds exciting. The reason I didn't is that I am out of India right now and if I win the mug, it would be difficult for you to send the goodie. But, I enjoy reading the prompt:)

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!)

Hello!

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…
