10 ways to tell if your Valentine is The One You Cannot Have

pon and zi photo: I LOVE YOU GOD DAMN IT!! CANT YOU HEAR MEEEE!!!!! 5877295.jpg





1. They have logged into whatsapp thrice since you sent that ‘hello’, it’s been eight hours now and you still haven’t got a reply. (Real valentines reply back within 15 minutes unless they are on a flight to U.S and their phone is switched off. And even if they are, they reply soon on landing!)

2. You send a message wishing ‘Happy Valentines’ and you get a reply asking ‘Who is this?’ (Run!)

3.You have posted photos of you getting an award, photos of you on that vacation or photos of something that you are proud of. The whole world and their aunt and dog have liked it. But they haven’t even seen it. (No, they aren’t that busy. They are not interested in your life. Accept it!)

4.You have sent them an email and there is no response for more than 24 hours. (Yes, we know. They have been sooooo busy with ‘too many things’)

5.They gift you something that would be suitable to give as a gift to a boss or a colleague. 

6.Worse, they don’t  gift you anything at all.

7.You log in to Facebook and discover their photos on a night out with their friends when you were supposed to have met for a date.

8.You call up at midnight to wish them on their special occasion and their phone continuously engaged. Next morning they tell you that they were so tired that they slept off.

9.You haven’t spoken on the phone for more than five days and when you login to Facebook, you suddenly see a change in their relationship status.

10. If all  of the above or even one of the above has happened to you, don’t worry. There is always this ! Get it for yourself—it is cheaper than diamonds, wine, teddy bears or any of those other crappy valentine stuff.
Besides, it will stay with you, never leave you, will comfort you and be your best friend. Forever! I promise :)

    3. True Vaishali..i agree with u...especially in long distance relationship it happens...sometime they get stuck when wanted to call u or the other time u r not in a position to answer the call. Understanding and accepting is the good option if you really consider him/her as ur valentine

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
