The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)

I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.

So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:

Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!

Get it from your local bookstore or order online and pay cash on deliver:

  2. I am unable to write a review on Amazon that's why i am writing my thinking about this book after reading Preeti Shenoy mam for #therulebreakers
    first of all very well written , precise writing.....your writing creates a world around me how you describe about " Joshimath' , VEDA, VIDYA, ANIMESH, KAMLA, RAJINDER, VANDANA, SURAJ AND ALL CHARACTERS. initial chapters from starting a perfect writings of first 2-3 chapters, "90 का दशक जहा पर लड़कियों को ज्यादा महत्व नहीं दिया जाता, लडके ही सबके लिए मैंने रखते थे | जहा वेदा पढ़ने मे आगे थी फिर भी father was more worried about only for his son only". मे गाव मे पला बड़ा हुआ हु इन सब चीजों को 90 के दशक मे मेने महसूस किया और देखा है | वेद जो अंदर ही अंदर सबकुछ अच्छा कर ने के बाद भी एक थोड़ी सी शाबाशी तक भी नहीं मिलती उसे वही उसकी मम्मी कमला जो बस अपने पति और बछो मे ही पूरा दिन और जिंदगी गुजार देती है| pg-11 rekha and veda conversation looks like every girls common conversation and it binds to read more a hard reality you written inside the book from a girls point of view. a perfect writings for suraj and veda now pg-13 5th para girls always worried whats her parents think if she change hair style, if she change dressing styles ? 15th page lil be emotional and perfect one writings. एक लड़की जो अभी किसी से मिली बस ख्वाब देखना शुरू ही किया था कि उसे कोई लड़का देखने आ गया | its story from evry "single person out of 10". the book has lil emotional, lil sadness, lil happiness, lil angriness, lil reality a hard reality of 90's. what perfect comeback in last some chapters and when they mutually understand to seperate becoz no one is finds happiness in all relationships and sometimes you need to break rules to bring happiness " ek एसी लड़की जिसे ना ही अपने घर मे अहमियत मिली ना ही किसी और जगह पर फिर भी उसने सब कि ख़ुशी और भलाई ही चाही | i am not going to disclose all the secret fun of this #therulebreakes book written by Preeti Shenoy mam. FOR ME IT IS 5 OUT OF 5 STARS becoz only those who can understand who sees this kind of people in 90s, when i was reading it was creating an imaginary world around me i assume characters how they looks. and my request is to all readers , do not give 1 star i am saying this not because, i am follower of Preeti Shenoy mam but becoz whatever she wrote on 90's plot it was hard reality for girls and still 20-30% are suffering by that mindset as well i hope so you all read quiet proper mindset. Thank You so much mam for writing such a nice book will look forward for next book and many many congrats for this book as well i had only one bad feelings that you were came in Ahmedabad but i was unable to come and meet you once in a life. 5 STAR OUT OF 5 #therulebreakers by Preeti Shenoy mam
    Thank you so much for a lovely book.

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.
