Footsteps.(post 15)




For today's post,  thought I would post what I do as a warm up for my writing. There is a site called One word.
You see a word at the top of the screen, and you get 60 seconds to write about it.
My word for today was 'Footsteps'.
And here is what i wrote:

The footsteps you leave on people’s hearts speak a lot about you. Tread with caution. Tread with love. Tread with care. Stomp if you must, but remember when you go, all you leave behind are memories.
The best part is, once you submit, you can also see what the others wrote on that same word, which you did.

Fun, isn't it?

That's all from me for today folks, goodnight.
Don't forget to show me some love by leaving me comments, so I know that you are with me, on this blog marathon!

xoxo

  1. Hi Preeti. Good morning. Thanks for this post. I thought of playing the One Word game too and wrote the following on the word, Footsteps:

    Whenever I hear the word footsteps, I think about how I have played a role in someone’s life. Whether me being in their life and them being in mine has made a difference or not. When I think of footsteps, I think of a person walking on the beach and the marks which they leave behind. It is very important for us to be a part of one’s life. When we will their life with lots of love and care, they will feel loved.

  3. Awesome... With this word I recall footsteps as in concrete mortar which remains permanent.. Same way our behaviour and personality leaves permanent footsteps in someone's life.

    Even though I have not seen you in person you have made permanent footsteps in my life.. Thanks a ton..

  5. When we look back at our footsteps it reminds us of the precious moments we have shared with our loved ones. They remind of milestones crossed in life and hearts which we have touched.

  6. That's a great idea... ideas based on one word in 60 seconds...seemed impossible... but tried it anyway... this is what I wrote... and pretty happy about it too.

    My footsteps are precious to be left on a heart that pours water over them. Instead I would rather walk on a path with muck all over. Life is short so I choose to be wise and keep my step with care everytime. Too proud you think but I know how it feels when people act sick.

    Mostly the initial thought to write about heart came almost immediately since I logged in the site soon after I read your words.

    Thanks Preeti Mam

  8. Footsteps on the sand of time leave memories galore and when you walk into the sunset the impressions are left behind.(82 secs)

  9. Many aspire to walk in your footsteps. Some succeed to walk in your footsteps, only to imprint them much deeper in the sands of time. Your footsteps Mrs.Preeti Shenoy are here for
    eternity and will remain as clear as they were on the day you leave them, inspiring the little, the young and the old in your own way now and forever.

We crossed many boundaries, walked through different paths of life and still walking...

  13. You are leaving wonderful footsteps with your writing and art work. :) Thanks for sharing about the "oneword" website. Tried it and what interests me is that we get to know what comes to our mind when we see the word.

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:
