A lovely evening! (blog marathon post 11)

Have just got back from the Interactive session at Landmark. It was a FABULOUS session!

This is me, in the car. The mandatory selfie before an event



The love and warmth I got from all of you who turned up there was overwhelming and I do feel awesome about it!

Here is what Pramod, a reader said. (Thanks for the photos Pramod!) The other person in these pictures along with Pramod is Rajkumar Cannebo, who has made it for all my book launches!



Here is what another reader Preethi Venugopal said




There are many many more photos. And many more readers have said lovely things about me.
A huge thank you to all of you who made it today. We had a great time as is evident from these pics.

I am really tired to write anymore today, as I have been on my feet since 5.30 pm. I am off to Lucknow tomorrow. I have an early start to the day.

So goodnight folks. See you in Lucknow at the Lucknow litfest.

I shall be posting from Lucknow tomorrow!

  1. Why I love to attend each event of Preeti Shenoy because she is a true author; reliable, simple, cooperative, friendly, frankly, worthy and so kind and so frank to her fans... i have never ever met such a great novelist, author, blogger, beautiful lady and even her family too... she can portrays people(characters) and their livelihood very nicely... thats why we youngsters are crazy on her novels... her novels are so fresh n feel like everything is happened to me n to us... what a genius AUTHOR... I really LOVE her writing... hope, me like a poor guy wants to make some reviews on her novels on behalf of an ordinary reader (I'm not a critic). My best wishes are always with U ma'am... You would be an international figure one day... i trust it. Waiting remaining photographs from the Lucknow :) HAve a safe flight... bring back lots of precious smiles from the Lucknow ma'am :)

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
