A video which went viral and a sketch for you.

In my last post, I had told you that I would be going live. Guess what---that video has gone viral!
I am shocked and  surprised in equal measures. As I type this, the video has got 683K views,488 shares, 13K likes and 3.6K comments!!! Can you believe those statistics?

If you want to watch the video, go HERE

  I have talked about friendships, how they change as we change, how it is hard to forgive and what to do if there is jealousy in friendships.  I have also talked about the books I am currently reading. I had actually read out a passage from my new book #ItsAllInThePlanets where Nidhi discusses a friendship with her step-mom  (whom she is very close to) Tara. Then there was a technical glitch, and hence the video got split into two parts. It is the 2nd part of the video that went viral.

As per my blog resolutions, I am trying to blog at least thrice a week---I plan to post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. And if possible, will post  photo-posts, in between too.

Happy? Told you, I love my blog--and I can't be separated from it for long :)

See you all soon. And do watch the video, come back here and tell me what you thought about it!

I am sharing a sketch I made here.

Hope you have a great weekend! What are your weekend plans?
(Mine is to stay at home and catch up on sleep and make art that makes me happy!) If you share, I am listening.

See you soon!
Much love
Preeti
Addendum: The post has got over 1.4 million views, more than 42K likes and more than a  1500 shares :) Am stunned !!!

  1. As I type this, there are 15k likes & 4k comments. Wow! :)

    I have read somewhere 'Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer.' I think you are blessed if you have a true friend. And, I believe that forgiving someone is not that hard, but it is very hard to forget.

    Best wishes...:)

  2. Hi Preeti,
    M an avid read of your books...simply loved each of those... Yesterday was listening to ur live talk about friendship...a question was popping up in my mind... couldn't ask that time though...
    Is it really impossible to turn a long back relationship into pure friendship... the one that lasts for life..?
    If not... what can be the destiny of such relations other than complete detachment and feeling the pain for life...

  7. Hello mam, (do I need to follow all this formalities?)
    Presently reading your book life is what you make it, so just with curiosity I came here to know more about you, staring chapters seems boring, but later on it picked up its pace and now getting interesting more and more.

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.

Earlier, in press in…

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…
