Love is in the air. (blog marathon post 15)

Greetings from Chandigarh!

Those of you who want to meet me at Chandigarh, can come to the Capital Book Depot , sector 17, Chandigarh at 12.00 pm on 16th February. I will be there for about an hour.

I have another event in the evening which is an invite only event, and in case you are keen to attend, do write to me and request an invite.

For today's  blog marathon post I am doing a Sunday Stealing Love-is-in-the air-Meme
(click on it to know what it is)

There is what they have asked:

Love, to you. 

Define love in your own words :  Love is being there for each other, come what may. Love is life itself.

What do you want in a relationship? 
A sense of being heard, a large degree of trust and freedom and also belief in me, knowing that I would make wise choices.

What do you contribute to a relationship ?
An element of fun, full and complete support, unconditional love and acceptance of flaws, for I am not perfect either.

Do you have a Valentine?  Yes and I miss him very much as he and I are apart right now. Can't wait to be together.

Describe the perfect V-day date in your opinion: Long conversations, a well cooked meal, some quiet time and expressing and re-affirming what we mean to each other.

Dream Date? Right now,my dream date would be my bed as I am exhausted and need to sleep.

What is your crush's name?  Saurabh. For further details and a picture of him, click here.

Do you believe in love at first sight? No , but I believe in lust at first site. If you want to know what I mean, watch this video:

This or that 

Chocolates or must pick one!  


A short kiss or a big hug? 
Big big big hug.

Cute and dimwitted, or Average and brilliant? 

Average and brilliant anyday. 


Turn-ons? Intelligence and wit combined with  humility, Sincerity and a fit body.

Turn-offs? Intellectual Arrogance or plain arrogance , selfishness and bad manners

What thing should a guy never say to you? Wanna do fraindsheep with me

How do you feel about kissing on the first date? I wouldn't. I would make him wait :)

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

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…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
