Staying connected (blog marathon post 4)

On Saturdays, my day day begins with checking how my column looks in print in The Financial Chronicle. For those who are not aware, I write a column every Saturday called 'Sex and the city' in the Financial Chronicle. It has everything to do with man-woman relationships, sex, love, how men and women are different etc. I cover a range of topics. If you want to read it, you can either you can find it online, or you could pick up a physical copy (recommended) :)

This was my column today.


One of the things I love doing is reading a  newspaper with a cup of coffee, in the mornings. I read multiple newspapers. I mostly skip the depressing or salacious stuff. I like reading the middle, the editorials and I also like 'The Speaking Tree' in Times of India, which has spiritual pieces.

We went to the multiplex yesterday and watched Me before You. It is rated 8.1 on IMDB and the movie is beautiful. I must say though that I liked Waiting, better.

There was an important message in the movie: That if you love someone, you just accept them for who they are. You may not agree or like the choices they make. But if you truly love them, then you do not try and change their minds to what you think is right. The choices they make are right for them. You accept and support them.

Thank you to all of you who left a comment on my son's blog.  ( For those who haven't read my last post, they are a collection of photos that he clicks with a little write-up about each post) .It has been getting a really nice response.

That's all from me from today.
See you again tomorrow!

  2. Madam, as your day begins with going through newspapers with a cuppa of tea likewise my Saturday begins with reading your article in FC with of course a cuppa of tea. Your blog marathons always fill up those gaps of seven days in between.
    Thanks for staying connected with your readers.

  6. I normally read your article on Sex and the city online. It really makes me happy that you write about issues which affect many people everyday. We may love someone for who they are and we must appreciate them even if their views are different from ours. I have found myself trying to change people, but in the end I realized that that's who they are and this is how I am :-) By the way, I visit Atul's blog on a daily basis and it is really nice to see his photographs and description for each photograph. :-)

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.
