Love, friendship and a guy called Wreck-it-Ralph

Sometimes a movie you watch leaves a lingering imprint in your mind and touches your soul. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it inspires you and makes you want to be a better person. It transports you to another world for a few hours and you become one with the characters. You find your heart beating wildly when they are about to do something dangerous you find yourself wiping a tear that has slipped out when something terrible happens to them and when they finally succeed you want to stand up hug them and give them an ovation.
Instead you sit glued to your seat, staring at the screen even as the credits roll.

I watched such a movie the other day. It was an animation movie. The graphics were brilliant and though the story had the usual twists and turns of a good commercial movie, what had me was the brilliant concept of a bad guy in an arcade game, wanting to be good. I fell in love with Wreck-it ralph just a few minutes into the movie.


Here is a trailer (which I really think does not do justice to what the movie is all about)



If you have a child in your life watch it with them. And if you do not have a child in your life, watch it for the child inside you.

It makes you feel grateful for all your  good friendships (oh yes there can be horrible friendships too--but I will save that for another post)  and  it makes you go awww.

And it makes you believe that Love and Friendship make life worth living. (Perhaps it resonated so much with me as that is the core theme of all my books)

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…

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 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.
