A note from me to you (blog marathon post 14)




Ever since this blog marathon started, I have always taken care to compose each post carefully. It isn't as though I am writing for the sake of posting something. And of course, I don't get paid for writing here. I write here for the sheer joy of it and to connect with you. It feels great when you all write back, and tell me that you enjoy my posts.

I was also thinking this morning, how easy it is to pass a remark about the 'quality of writing ' on this blog. Those who have followed my blog will know that I do take care to see that I  always post something interesting---a poem I wrote,an inspirational post, a photo that matters to me,something amusing and things like that. It is always personal, always warm. It is never a callous post. 

If you have any requests for a particular topic, do say so in my comment box and I will consider that for my next post.

  One of the really nice things about being a best-selling author is that I get to travel to many places I have never been to, on my book tours as well as for giving talks at Corporate organizations and educational institutions. XIMB had invited me for a talk and it was superbly received.  I had shared pictures in this post.

I got a chance to visit Orissa, earlier this month. The beauty of Lingaraj temple was astounding. If you haven't yet visited it, do put in on your To-do list for 2016.

When I visited Bhubhaneshwar on my book tour, I also got a chance to visit Kedar Gauri temple, where I fell in love with  a cat that returned the favour. I always have a way with animals. The cat followed me around and even slept in my lap --which anyone who is familiar with cats will tell you is uncommon, unless the cat truly likes you.
The priest at the temple told me that there is a tradition in that temple, where if your wish is fulfilled, you gift a cat to the Goddess. That intrigued me. When I mentioned this to the journalist who was interviewing me the next day, he told me the story behind this tradition.

Come back tomorrow, if you want to hear the story of how this tradition came to be! 
Till then, keep smiling.

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.
