Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)



Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti

  1. If it is repeatedly done when people around it may seem obvious n overdone..but otherwise couple in luv shld exhibit some gestures like holding hands..gazing into each other eyes etc..n also in India our children are clueless till a age how come they are born because parents normally behave as if they didnt even touch each other..which is ridiculous. ��

  3. In love, it's really difficult to keep off. However, there are more intense nuances, invisible to the external world, that could and more often take place. PDA better be avoided.

  5. Hello Preeti,
    I want to know if it is possible to get your books abroad (Europe) because I don’t live in India? How can it be done? I really wish to read your new book.

    Please let me know at the earliest.

  6. Hi Preeti. I really loved reading today's post. I have known a lot of couples like this from the time I was in Junior High School. Maybe because I did not have a boyfriend, I found this kind of behavior to be very annoying. Then finally, after many many years, I fell in love and started acting like how my friends used to when they first fell in love. I looked at myself in the mirror one day and realized that I too had become one of 'them.' This scared me. I thought that maybe people would get annoyed by my behavior, so I immediately changed because I did not want to annoy others just because I was living in a bubble of love.

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…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

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…
