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. :)

  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 :-)

  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

    Regards,

  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!

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.
