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

    Love the list Preeti. It's weird the way so many behave and I smile at the change in relationship status after some time.

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…
