This old man will change what you think about old folks (post 9 #AhundredLittleFlames)





Meet Gopal Shanker. He is NOT your sweet, loving Grandpa.
He is sarcastic. He is irritable.
And yet, underneath all that there is a heart of gold.

Meet him in A Hundred Little Flames
Know anyone like him?

  3. Both of my grandfathers were strict, but not to the point of how Ayan's grandfather has been described in the post. When it comes to grand kids, most of the grandparents will show leniency towards them. I used to go through the same thing when I was a kid. My grandfather would never shout at me :-) I am sure Ayan's grandfather is very strict due to some reason. Will have to wait for November 11th to find out! :-)

  4. Remembering my grandparents today. They are in the heavens above but still i can feel them with me. They have unconditional love towards their grand children. Their void cannot be filled. The values which the grandparents imbibe in their grandchildren help them through out their lives.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
