Meet Aniket and Trish from #ItsAllInThePlanets

Many of you who follow my Facebook page or Instagram, would know that I signed more than 3000 copies in Delhi, at the Thomson Press. It was such an eye opener. The Press is THE largest in India and it is definitely a 'must-see' if you can manage a visit. Have never seen anything like that. Here is what I posted on my Insta gram.


We quickly ran out of signed copies, and I again travelled to Chennai where I signed more than 1200! Here are photos from that (again from my Instagram feed)


It was a herculean task to sign so many books and I had shoulder pain for days. Now I have somewhat recovered (and will be travelling to Ahemdabad soon for the book launch!

Yes--we kick off the book tour in Ahemdabad) .





 Meanwhile I thought I would tell you about the characters of my new book. Aniket is a charming young man, a techie who lives in Bangalore. He is slightly overweight. Most people, when they start working become so busy that they neglect their diets, and exercise. Aniket is like that too. He lands himself a HOT girls friend Trish.

Trish wants him to lose his beer belly. Aniket will do anything to make her happy. He does love her truly. Watch this video (it is less than a minute) with sound turned on to meet Aniket.




And here is Trish. You can see for yourself why any guy would WANT to hold on to a girl like this :)





Do watch the above video too.  And tomorrow, I will tell you about Nidhi. Till then, stay tuned. _____________________________________

    In the Magical World of Love, Relationship and Destiny, 23 September 2016
    By Anu


    I have just finished reading the book today and am still overwhelmed by it. I couldn't put this book down.I love preethi shenoy's ability to connect with her reader, simple language flow just grips you. Her creativity at its best. The Book surely brings love, happiness, sad, emotions, relations and so on.

    All the characters mainly Aniket, Nidhi, Trish, Manoj and code language speaking Subbu.

    It also gives an insight about blogs, pottery and care for animals(dogs).

    I liked in book very much - Sunsign Personality traits in the beginning of the book and Daily forecast giving a gist of what holds in each chapters is unique. The Book is sure shot winner in all aspects.

    My Favorite lines from the book:

    * Life is beautiful when you share it with a supportive spouse;otherwise it can be hell.
    * This is a part of who he is, and I want to honour that.
    * Just because someone doesn't match your interests exactly, it doesn't mean you cannot have a great relationship with them.
    * Relationships. They are such strange things. Just when you think you have a grip on them, something surprises you. You are never in control. And it is always a power shift. Everything you do in a relationship so depends on how much you love that person.
    * Pg : 120, Article about life-mates and soul-mates.
    * Love does come with an element of possessiveness, which you have to accept.
    * Friendship is one of life's greatest gifts, and we get to choose whom we are friends with. A friend is a gift you give yourself.
    * You live only once. And we all deserve happiness. Most of the time we are so afraid to break out of that rut, the routines, the sameness which we are used to.
    * A good life partner should encourage you to be the best version of yourself.
    * Life goes on. Life waits for nobody, Ani. We have to grab it and ride it.
    * No matter what you do, your destiny unfolds in the way it is meant to.
    * Maybe there is something beyond our control. Things may not turn out the way we want them to. But how we deal with it is what matters.
    * Love is too painful. As much as it can relate, it can also kill. And if you do survive it's aftermath, you would still feel the searing pain each time a memory creeps up.
    * No road is too hard, no path too long and nothing is too much trouble when you are in love.
    * We are dealt cards. That is fate. But we do have free will. What we do with the blows that land on us is up to us. We can fight and emerge stronger than before. Or we can give up.

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
