A talk at the Lucknow University and Lucknow lit fest (blog marathon post 13)

The folks at Lucknow University are fabulous!I had a wonderful time there this morning, where I gave a talk, about 5 lessons I learnt on my journey from a blogger to an author.

Prof.Nishi Pandey, who is  the Head of Department of English and Modern languages, And also the Director of Planning and development board  , Director is Ineternational collaborations  and the International Students advisor  is a warm and wonderful person. I loved conversing with her. Her depth of knowledge and her perspectives are refreshing and I enjoyed every moment spent with her.

The students of the University came up with some intelligent questions and I enjoyed answering them. One of them made this lovely card for me, and cleverly used all the titles of my books to convey a super-sweet message! Here we are posing with the card. In the picture is Prof.Nishi Pandey, Vishaka (who made the card) and  you know who the third person is :)




This is what she wrote inside the card:


Thank you Vishakha and the University of Lucknow. Let me confess--I loved interacting with all of you too!

Here is a picture of me with the staff and students of Lucknow University who attended my talk.




And here is Prof.Nishi Pandey and me at the Lucknow lit fest.




And here I am posing in front of the Scientific Convention center , Lucknow, where the litfest is being held.

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
