A Throwback post to a Cosmopolitan shoot



I think memories are very important. Without memories, we are nothing. It is the past that makes us who we are.
One of my author friends, posted this snap on her Instagram, and it brought back memories of that wonderful afternoon, when Cosmopolitan magazine featured all of us for a shoot, and flew us to Delhi.

This is one of the pictures from the shoot, and we were all featured in the magazine the following month.
A wonderful afternoon indeed.

Tomorrow, I am off to make many more happy memories. One of my closest friends is getting married, and I am so so so happy for him. I am flying with my family, to attend his wedding. I have to wake up at the unearthly hour of 3.00 am, as I have an early morning flight to catch.
(but that does not mean my blog marathon is excused. I promised a new post every day, and promises are promises. What can I say? I am old fashioned that way :) )

Shall blog again tomorrow.
See you then!
Good night.

  1. Wonderful beautiful pic...somehow seeing you all ladies instil a different energy in me and firms my believe that we women are not less and if we have the will we can achieve anything.. we can make a life of our own...we can get out of our comfort zone and do something different. And lastly I so love the fact that you are dedicated and take your promises so seriously...i have learnt this lesson from one of my close friend praveen who taught me how to value ones own words and how to not make promises if you can't fulfill them. Never had I taken my own self and words so seriously except after having met this friend of mine and i can see that you are equally dedicated..there is so much to learn from you Preeti that i am at awe what to pick and what to leave. You are not tradiational you are mixture of everything.. ..a unique person in your self...

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.
