Book Launch--It's All In The Planets. Bangalore, Come and meet me :)

In my last post, I told you about the book signings and you also met Aniket and Trish.
I said I would introduce you to Nidhi--well, here she is!

There's so much happening around the book, that I sometimes find it hard to keep my blog readers updated, as the easier options are Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. (In case you you want to see what I am upto during the day, you can follow me on snap. I post very regularly there, My snap id Preeti.Shenoy)

Despite all the above, like an old lover, I find myself returning again and again to the blog. It's where my heart is, it is where my core is. This is where I began my journey 10 years ago!(Yes, you read that right. It is  soon going to be TEN years since I started blogging and that is a very long time. I plan to do something very special on my 10th year blog anniversary which is coming up on October 22nd. So stay tuned ! )

My book launch started at Ahemdabad. It went SPLENDIDLY.  The audience was a very informed crowd who had read many of my books. Many were blog readers too.
This is what I had written on FB:
 The book tour of #ItsAllInThePlanets started off with a ROCKING note at Crossword Bookstores Ltd. (Mithaklai) Ahmedabad. It was a full-house. A very informed audience who had read ALL my books! The energy in the atmosphere was TERRIFIC, as every person present there will avow. We had so much fun. We talked about many things. I shared the back-story behind each of my titles. And I was moved when the readers brought me gifts! I met my youngest reader there who is just 13. She said she loves my books and got into trouble at school once for reading a book of mine :) (Please don't get into trouble!!) A heartfelt thanks to the readers who turned up in large numbers on a working day, and made me feel so loved! Watch out for many more launches to come!

The next stop for the book  tour is BANGALORE. Here is the invite

It's on Saturday, 1st October at 5.00 pm, at a lovely bookstore called Bookworm.
Hope to see you all there!

  4. Hello Mam,
    Most of the times when I read your blog I feel emotional (In fact, I read only your blog). You are a wonderful writer. You express the feeling in writing exactly how it feels, In fact, better. Today I also understand that you earned all this with hard work and spending all the great time. You made your journey wonderful and also made many of our lives more meaningful through your writing. Thank you is a small word to say. May god or nature bless you and your family a great health long life.
    Take care.

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

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…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
