One fine day--- at Chandigarh! (blog marathon post 16)

 This is what I woke to this morning.Slight drizzle, cool breeze and a mood of melancholia.
Love it as I sit gazing out of the window sipping a warm cuppa.



Then I visited three book stores--Capital Book Depot, English book store and Browser book store.


 This is me with Ajay, the owner of the Capital book Depot. Can you spot my titles in the background? :)

I met up with readers at Capital Book store--and it was wonderful. One of the readers was so overwhelmed when she saw me that she cried! I was stunned. I gave her a hug.

I had to meet the press after that which i did and I was exhausted. But I had another event at Whistling Duck Chandigarh. By the time I ate lunch it was 3.30 pm. (I was starving)

As soon as I entered the venue, rows and rows of my books greeted me. I was so happy I had to pose for a picture

The event was wonderful. Members of the Chandigarh Literature society attended it.




I spoke about my journey from a blogger to an author. And there were a lot of questions which the audience asked.I also read out from the book.


I
Signed a lot of copies too.

All in all , an excellent day, though exhausting.

And tomorrow I leave for jaipur. If you have friends in jaipur, do tell them I will be at Crossword bookstore at 6.00 pm.

 I am beat, exhausted, tired,burned out and over taxed.
You can recharge me by leaving me comments :) So please feel free to use the comment box.
G'nite folks--and will blog again from Jaipur tomo.

  1. Hello Priti, I live in Germany and missed a signed copy of your book by 2 days. I was in Jaipur and bought three of your books from the same Crosswords. Today I am back to Germany, wish I can meet you in person. And thanks for hosting my city. Best wishes.

  7. It is such a relief reading your post sitting here in Muscat. It was so good to see the morning drizzle. And the post also brought back memories of the reading session in Bangalore during the release of 34 Bubble gums... Was it in Bookworms?
    Great going, Preeti

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…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.

My best friend's wedding :)

The above is where I am staying right now! It is an amazing place :)
I am here for the wedding of one of my closest friends.

You can see videos of me dancing on my Instagram account in my story (which will be available for 24 hours).

Here are some more snap shots from today.

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?

As you can see from the above pics, as well as from my Insta feed, I am having a really really good time.

More updates tomorrow.
(I left home at 3.00 am today, as I had an early morning flight)

Stay tuned!
