What fun stuff do you do with your friends? (post 6)

 All good friends have a favourite thing they do. It's their thing.

Ayan and his friend quote random movie dialogues to each other. One who fails to guess the name of the movie gets beer for the other.

What fun stuff do YOU do with your close friends? Tell me in comments, I would love to know.

And I'l be back ;-)
(which movie?) :)
Guess the name of the movie correctly and I will pick one person and send them a handmade card. :)

Get the book:
ALL pre-orders from the above link will be signed copies.


  1. The name of the movie is Ae Dil hai muskil

  2. When we meet we all talk about each other's issues and problems during the day or week and give it a fictional and funny twist through creative thinking which generates lots of laughter. When we leave we leave with a lighter and happy mind :-)

  3. Hello mam.
    I really love your writing and regularly wait for your blogposts. Keep writing :)

    The dialogue is from the movie TERMINATOR

  4. We chill normally with a coffee and discussions on the surroundings. Way way weird discussions and sometimes yes: ‘lagi 50 ki’ ;)

    Arnold’s famous: I’l be back from The Terminator
    #Waiting for 11th Nov. Pre-Ordered..!!!

  5. The Terminator Mam!
    But I haven't pre-ordered the book.

  6. Preethi madam,
    My guess for Movie name is Thalapathy. Tamil movie.

    Fun stuff I do with my friend :
    We take one map. And one person will tell a city name. Another need to identify that name in map. We used to play this in 90's. Also we will play cricket and wrestling card game.
    I love reading your books. I have completed your 4 books. Best one is the one you cannot have.
    I ahve already pre-ordered hundred little flames. Waiting.

    Best wishes to you

  7. I'll be back. ... "I'll be back" said Arnold Schwarzenegger,from the 1984 science fiction film The Terminator.

    As curious listeners at your book launch "It's all in the planets" at Crossword, Mithakali Road (Ahmedabad), we amdavadis request you to be back here for #AHundredLittleFlames

    As friends the funny thing we do in our college gang WhatsApp group is to keep poking each other even after 25 years of college.

  8. Hi Preeti. Whenever I meet my friends, we normally go out for lunch or a coffee. Sometimes we may visit a pub and chill out for hours. Spending time with friends is therapy for me because I can relax and be myself without having to worry about my usual routine. As far as the movie is concerned which you asked about, I am a big blank. But hope to know the answer soon!

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.
