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.

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
