Become a book fairy! Brighten someone's day :)

Hi there!

Am off to become a book fairy :)

Wondering what a book fairy is?
Read this article (written by yours truly)  which explains it. (click on image to enlarge)

You can also read the above article here.

I shall come back and update this post.
Till then stay tuned :)

Here are the three books I left around for people to find:

And here's the second one:
And the third one is my own which I left in a flight :)


  1. Such a beautiful concept. Thanks for the information. Now on, one can pick a book placed by a book fairy without any guilt, and after having gone through it, can place back for further reading by another book lover. I too intend to place a book in Delhi Metro, but not an author signed one. A book with its author's signature is something to preserve; it immediately takes us to the moment when it was being signed.

  2. Wow! This is such an interesting concept. I have never heard about this before. I know that reading is a wonderful hobby, and once you start, you won't be able to stop. One of the nice things is to share the books which bring lots of peace and joy to one's life so that others can also experience the same. I will definitely let my friends who love to read know about this concept - in case they are not already aware of it. Thank you!

  4. Its amazing never heard about it before.does it really exist but i am happy to find my city indore in the official list:)

  5. What a lovely concept this is ma'am. In US here we have a concept of painting stones with a positive image and hiding it in the garden or a porch or any public place. It indeed does plant a smile on the faces who receive these beautiful stones. When I come back to India for my vacation, I am surely going to participate in book fairy concept. :-)

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

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…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
