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 :-)

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…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?
