A picnic --to refresh one's soul (blog marathon post 26)

Every now and then, we need some little break, something rejuvenating to refresh our souls, nourish our spirits.

For me today, it was a pinic in one of the most beautiful spots in bangalore city. It was magical, ethereal, serene.

Here are some pictures from today:




I even managed to capture the trunk of an old banyan tree.



Two people , complete strangers, who kind of peeped into what I was doing, said it was lovely work.

You heard all about my day. Your turn now! What did you do, to nourish your soul?

  2. Hi Preeti,

    I have been an avid reader of your since long, to be precise at least for 9 years and I have relished your blog posts and your novels equally, I am writing to let you know that you are an inspiration to many. Today you have inspired me to start a blog marathon just like you are doing, though I have tried previously also I had failed miserably but your commitment to writing and the way you inspired others is incredible.. so I am giving a link to my blog and blog post dedicated to you for being my inspiration, I hope you will go through it incase you get time from your busy schedule. I also am a blogger since 2008 and long time back in 2010 you had commented on one of my poems and I treasure it till date, I have given a link to that post also on my first Marathon post. Thank you for being such a wonderful writer and inspiration. Sorry for eating up so much of you comments space.
    take care
    thanks

  3. Greenery nourishes the soul to such an extent that nothing else can do. It has got a soothing influence on the mind. Those photos look great madam.

  4. What a lovely way to spend your Sunday. For me, some Sundays call for relaxation at the salon. I am normally there for 2 hours and it gives me a chance to unwind and get ready for the week ahead.

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

What fun stuff do you do with your friends? (post 6)

All good friends have a favourite thing they do. It's their thing.

Ayan and his friend quote random movie dialogues to each other. One who fails to guess the name of the movie gets beer for the other.

What fun stuff do YOU do with your close friends? Tell me in comments, I would love to know.

And I'l be back ;-)
(which movie?) :)
Guess the name of the movie correctly and I will pick one person and send them a handmade card. :)
