The questions of Age (post 12)




For my post today, I decided to do something fun, something light, and something breezy, easy and not so cheesy. So I headed over to Sunday stealing. And what do I find?

This! (Not breezy, not easy, and definitely not cheesy). But since I decided to do it anyway, here goes:


1. By a certain age, women should : not give a damn, and should live to please themselves.

2. By a certain age men, should : retire :D

3. When I was young I thought by now I would : stop caring about close people who purposely put you down.

4. Now that I am older I wish : I had not given a damn in my twenties and traveled more.

5. You know that you are too old to do an activity when: you are NEVER too old to do ANYTHING!

6. You know you are too young to do an activity when : it's illegal for you to do that.

7. When I was in high school I listened to the music of : Pop of the 90's, George Michael, Madonna, Sting.

8. When I was in college (or the next four years after high school) I listened to the music of : REM, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Ugly Kid Joe.

9. These days, at my age I find myself listening music of:  what current teens like!!  Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Major Lazer, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5

10. For my last birthday I : sketched something amazing--Tipu's palace!

11. On my next birthday I want to : Be my myself, at a place where nobody can reach me.

12. The best birthday present I ever got was : When my family planned the entire day with me, full of surprises/

13. The first time I felt that I was an adult was when : I gave birth to my son.

14. The last time I felt like I was still a kid was when : I felt helpless about a certain situation. Wait no--I feel like a kid on most days.

15. I would sum up 2016 by saying: It was probably one of the worst years of my life, and I am glad it is over.

16. I hope I will sum up 2017 by saying in December: yeah babe--you did it!

17. So far in terms of age, I feel my first big milestone was: When my first book was published.

18. As I look forward to the rest of my life’s journey, I feel my biggest milestone of my life will be: When i die? :P

19. By the time I was the age I am now I am surprised that I haven’t yet: run away, renouncing the world, adopting asceticism.

20. By the time I am 65, I hope that I have: Lived life to the fullest, travelled a lot and ticked everything on
My Secret wish list

  3. Simply superb - this is for everyone to ponder. The reason for you being one of the best writers in the country apart from your talent is because you love yourself and you love life. This is the basic ingredient for one to be successful.

  6. Loved reading your answers, Preeti. I thought of trying it myself and sharing it with you. This is the first time I have ever done something like this!

    1. By a certain age, women should stop worrying about what others think and focus on their happiness

    2. By a certain age men, should stop comparing themselves with others and concentrate on their own goals.

    3. When I was young I thought by now I would be living in a huge mansion with my husband, two kids and a dog.

    4. Now that I am older I wish I did not complain so much in my life.

    5. You know that you are too old to do an activity when you get a gut feeling that it’s not worth it.

    6. You know you are too young to do an activity when no matter how much you try to do it, it’s just not working out.

    7. When I was in high school I listened to the music of Aaliyah, Brandy and some other Rap and R&B Artists.

    8. When I was in college (or the next four years after high school) I listened to the music of Hindi and Malayalam Movies.

    9. These days, at my age I find myself listening music of Malayalam movies and a few Hindi ones too.

    10. For my last birthday I cut a cake at home and work.

    11. On my next birthday I want to celebrate like I never have before.

    12. The best birthday present I ever got was whatever my parents have given me.

    13. The first time I felt that I was an adult was when I started living on my own.

    14. The last time I felt like I was still a kid was when I was with my cousins and we were giggling and joking around as if I was their age.

    15. I would sum up 2016 by saying it was an interesting year with lots of ups and downs.

    16. I hope I will sum up 2017 by saying in December that I lived a happier and less tension free year.

    17. So far in terms of age, I feel my first big milestone was learning to live my life after my father’s unexpected death.

    18. As I look forward to the rest of my life’s journey, I feel my biggest milestone of my life will be giving up my life in States and coming back to settle in my home country.

    19. By the time I was the age I am now I am surprised that I haven’t yet travelled across the world.

    20. By the time I am 65, I hope that I have a healthier life style.

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

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…
