5 tips to improve your relationship (blog marathon post 21)

Highlight of my day today was the harvest from our   terrace vegetable garden.

Here is what we harvested:

a) 1.75 kgs of tomatoes.
b) Some long beans.
c) 400 gms bitter gourd.
d)  Some sprigs of Parsley
e)  A bunch of Spinach

f) A bunch of Rocket leaves


Here is Satish posing with the harvest :)




I always feel gardening is a lot like relationships. Here is why

1. You need to invest a lot of time in both.

2.If you neglect it, it withers. If you, in your enthusiasm over-water it, it dies. In relationships space is the equivalent of water. Too much and your relationship suffers. Too little and you kill it.

3.You need a lot of patience for both. You do not get results overnight, in a week or even a fortnight :)

4.You need to weed out the pests ;-) Don't allow them. They creep in slowly without your realising it and you have to be extra careful.

5. It needs a lot of nutrition. In a garden we need to give it nutrients. In a relationship the nutrients are loving gestures like a hug, a kiss, expressing love, a small thoughtful gift or anything that makes your partner feel loved.

  In case this post has motivated you to start your own garden, here is a guide I wrote.
If it has motivated you to think about your relationships, that's great too :)

You can tell me what you think in my comment box. Go on! Don't be shy or scared. I do not bite :)

Till tomorrow--happy nurturing and a happy happy Saturday!

  4. yes, nature teaches us lots of lessons.the need is to look around, introspect every tiny sound ,and action....even the breeze and rustling leaves tells us there is grace even in acceptance.if we are sweet to others, we give a joy even to the grieving souls...

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
