Friends who get you (blog marathon post 10)

There's magic which happens when you connect with people of the same wave-length. People who get you. Understand you. You feel 'one of a tribe'. You feel appreciated, validated, most importantly simply understood.

It is a rare thing. You might have a best friend whose life is completely different from yours. Sure, they may give you a patient hearing, they may give you encouragement, they may be there for you when you need them. But when it comes to your work, and something that means a lot to you, they just might not 'get you' , as they have never experienced what you are going through. Their journeys and their paths have been different.


I met and connected with my friends today, after my meetings. It was rejuvenating, refreshing, energising.

My hotel room, is done up BEAUTIFULLY. Each room has a different theme, and mine is done up in a peacock theme, with cerulean blue and gold. There is a FABULOUS painting that adorns a wall, little detailing, hand crafted mirrors that hang from the main mirror in a wrought iron frame, a bunch of flowers, books on  aatma sutra, karmic connections and many such interesting things. The room is so beautiful that I do not feel like leaving it. This is a lovely boutique hotel called Le Sutra. Check it out online and have a look at their rooms.

I feel so good today, I am at peace.
And here's a pic from today, from my instagram feed. I spent a lot of time at the fabulous Madhuri Banerjee's place. That's what she posted on her instagram, and I reposted. grateful for the happy memories, and grateful for the happy times.

  1. Close friends are best people in the world..no one can listen to us as they do.I am lucky to have few close friends..Nice post Mam..waiting for your next post, missing my friends.

  2. I guess, everyone should have their own "ME" time. Sometimes when you are hard at yourself even a thousand of your very best friends can't help but you yourself should pick yourself up from your own mess. But that doesn't mean that you don't need friends, you require friends but there are some limitations too.
    I surely love the way you choose such diverse range of topics for your marathon. You're truly inspiring

  5. There is nothing like spending time with friends, especially when you are meeting them after a long time! Also, when you live in different cities, it is difficult to meet often, so when you finally do meet, it's like a dream come true. Glad you get to concentrate on both your professional and personal life when you travel on work, Preeti! Enjoy!

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
