True friends! (post 28)









“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.”

 

Charles R Swindoll

I met with my good friends Shinie Antony and Vani Mahesh today, both of who are excellent writers. In addtion to being the author of several books, Shinie is also the co-founder of Bangalore literature festival. Vani Mahesh  is an expert on Mythology and she writes mythology. Many of the Amar Chitra Kathas that you read would probably have been authored by her. She si a walking talking encyclopaedia on Puranas and things like that.
They have also co-authored a book, A Kingdom For His Love  which carried a quote by me on the cover!

We  were meeting after a long time, as all of us are immersed in our careers and other things, and we lead very busy lives.
But oh the joy when we met! (as is evident from this picture)
We felt so wonderful, and I feel blessed to have such friendships. (Friendship is a common theme in many of my novels and I feel great to have such good friends)

  1. Hi Preeti. It is so nice that you got to meet your friends in spite of your busy schedule. There is nothing like catching up with our dear ones who will be always there for us no matter what. Friendship means a lot to me too. I have been in a lot of one sided friendships as well. I feel bad at first, but in the end I realized that I should not feel guilty. Friendships are precious and special. We should nurture them just like any other relationship :-)

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.

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


You also get access to an EXCLUSIVE facebook writing club, which is a CLOSED group.

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
