  1. Congrats on the new book..looking forward to grab the copy.. but as far as the video goes, too much of waiting needed to read the content and the reverse order of focus is a distraction

  2. Agree with Reshmi. As I am half-way through, the text disappears. Nevertheless, awaiting eagerly! Why not put up more contests?

  3. As far the category of genre my 'fanciful' author has chosen to brainstorm and reflect on, I'm curious to know what corners of life have been discussed, and how it will differ from the other versions of her composition (fiction genre). Although I must admit I'm fascinated and riveted to her fictitious approaches, I find them narrating life right to the marrow, this exclusive book is straightly a keenness, and if possible, I'm waiting with suspense to grab an autographed copy of the author, my inspirational 'Preeti Shenoy' Ma'am.

  4. Eagerly awaiting this book :-) Congrats for this new book :-) Coming to the video .. reverse order is difficult to get immediately ... and after all the words appear in the screen... within fraction of seconds it goes even before we read the full screen.I had to pause to read the screen fully. And yes too much waiting time in between. I loved the music in this:-)

  6. The sentences appearing in random order do not register immediately and disappear very quickly before i can appreciate the meaning. It would have been better if the sentences appeared slowly as complete sentences so that the meaning would actually dawn upon the person reading it. Anyways , eagerly waiting for the new book . I wonder what depth of relations have been touched upon in the new book. Waiting with a baited breath. Why not set up a pre book launch with flipkart or amazon ??

  7. Waiting eagerly to grab a copy of the upcoming book. So far your works have never turned me down. Relationships being one of the integral part of our lives, definitely calls for a lot of unexplored questions and answers. The content look pretty interesting so far and it looks obvious that all of us can have a lot of take away from this book. Wishing you All the Best for the Book Launch!!!
    Keep Writing!! Lots of Love!!

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…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
