Hello dear dear reader!
How are you? Hope all is well (and it is something to be grateful for these days if the honest answer is yes, all is well)
It's been really long since I posted here. I did post for 30 consecutive days during the first lockdown. Then I extended it, as the lock-down got extended. But the last post here was in September.
The reason for not posting were many. I faced some deep personal losses (I am still recovering). I moved homes. I had a million things to take care of on the personal front. And amidst all of this, I also wrote a book on positivity! I signed a two book deal with Harper Collins. (Click on the link to know more). It became increasingly difficult to do unpaid work (like writing in this blog. To write here, I have to take out extra time, after completing the work that I get paid for.)
Many of you wrote to me saying you miss my blog, and that you have been loyal readers for over 14 years! (yes, I started this blog in 2006 and have kept it going since then.) All your love and requests were enough to bring me back :)
One other thing that happened during my silence here is that I got featured on the cover of e-she magazine. They did a beautiful in depth story on me.
I just posted this update today:
What a BRILLIANT movie The Great Indian Kitchen is. I urge every Indian to watch this !! Each and every scene is so nuanced, so powerful that it leaves you with a punch in the gut long after the movie ends. Well done Jeo Baby!! #TheGreatIndianKitchen #MustWatch pic.twitter.com/6zwoLtNUar— Preeti Shenoy (@preetishenoy) February 25, 2021
The above movie is streaming only on Neestream (you can subscribe for just a month or you can just get this movie alone) as Netflix and Amazon prime refused to take it as it has some controversial issues.
If you have watched it, do let me know your thoughts.
If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it.
More soon, after I read all your comments (Please use my comment box if you are reading this on mail. Head over to my blog and comment there please) . Now that I am back, I intend writing here regularly.
Take care of yourself. Sleep well. Eat healthy and don't forget to get some exercise, even if it is for just 15 minutes a day.
See you in my comment box!
