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...

    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.

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…

I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
