A lovely letter I got.

 Hi there,

Where do the weeks vanish? Is there a little time gobbling monster that sits on the edges of life and gobbles up time, when you are not watching?

I can't believe that it is two weeks since I wrote in this blog. I don't think i have ever had such long silences in the past, except when I was moving homes, across countries. So the resolution now is to post at least once a week.

At my end, what has been keeping me busy is my new book! Yes, I am working on it and it would be out later this year. That is all the details that I can reveal right now. I am really excited about it! :)

Other than that, if you miss me too much here, you can catch me every  Saturday on Financial Chronicle. I write a regular column there called Sex and the city. It is on relationships, love, lust and everything connected to that. I post my columns and online links on my FB page. and all the columns are in this album.

Every now and then, I get such lovely emails and messages from my readers---and the messages are so beautiful and encouraging. No matter how many I get, I always feel good to get yet one more.
I share with you one such beautiful message (shared after taking permission from the person who wrote it:)




I do get many messages like the above. I cherish them---because my writing has made a difference in someone's life. How awesome is that?!

The Secret Wishlist is now translated into Tamil!
I cannot read Tamil and so it feels fantastic to see my work in a laguage I cannot read. I only hope the translations have been done right! :) Click on the link to buy it.

If you want to read more reviews of the Secret Wishlist, click here. 
You can get it at just Rs. 78/- and  if you scroll down, they have a combo offer too, where you get The Secret Wishlist as well as 'The One You cannot Have' for Rs.198. (and that includes a free home delivery!)

Anyway--now that I have broken the long silence, I hope to be around here more often.
Till then, make a secret wishlist---and watch it come true :)

Love
Preeti

  10. Hi Preeti...
    Its so great to see that mail... Your books are really a "look into self" portrait of the present era youth, where they could see themselves in one or the other way... Yes... thus, definitely it will be a real life saver, an inspiration and a motivation, and I should say it will be a good counselor too...
    Let your words take many lives to the heights of success and transformation...
    waiting for your new work...

  11. Hi Preeti,

    Just completed the novel "The One You Cannot Have" and cudn't wait to write this to you.

    This is one of the best works I have read recently. I was so engrossed in it that waiting for tomorrow to complete the novel was completely out of question.

    I could easily identify with Anjali who is waiting patiently for her Aman to let go off the past and accept the present whole heartedly so that we can both make a promising future...."My Secret Wishlist" has the only wish of having a happy ending rather a happy beginning same as described in the novel

    I hope my Aman (lives in your city...) grabs a copy and read it with the same passion and love with which I did...

    Kudos to ur work and expecting some more masterpieces from your side...wud love to read each one of them

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
