Preeti Shenoy’s Blog

I read her “34 Bubblegums and Candies” years back and was impressed the way she wrote. She did mention that thoseย anecdotes were various posts of her blog. They were interesting, fun to read and touching.

After that I read each and every book of hers. Each book has a different story line. Only that writing style remains the same – Gripping and touching ๐Ÿ™‚

I was just trying to surf blogs and I came across her blog .. Much Love! Preeti Shenoy

I went through her complete Mama Moments post in one sitting. She inspires/motivates me to put kids first before you ๐Ÿ™‚ Putting aside career/financial independence for the sake of kids is not easy at all .. But going through your posts Preeti I have to say U just showed how beautiful and worthy it is ๐Ÿ™‚

You would inspire me for the same when needed ๐Ÿ™‚

Also I love her style of blogging, its simple, made to feel as if conversing directly with you. She is an inspiration for me to start blogging too.

Blogging need not be serious, It could be just what, when you feelย touched is what I learnt from her blog.

Thank You ๐Ÿ™‚

Sudha Murthy – A person untouched with fame and money

Sudha Murthy wife of Narayana Murthy needs no introduction. She is renowned for her philanthropic works and books.

Out of curiosity, I picked up her “Wise and Otherwise:A Salute to Life”. Frankly, I expected it to be boring and complex. But as I read the first story, I was totally floored with her simple writing narrating the simple threads of human interactions in her life.

I couldn’t stop reading, as I loved stories and those were something I could totally relate in todays life. The stories were very thought provoking and simple to understand.

As I put the book down, respect for her and her writings grew immensely.
I bought all her novels and finished them within 4 days ๐Ÿ™‚

All the novels were intense and just like her stories, woven on the delicate threads of human relations and interactions ๐Ÿ™‚
I liked the way the heroines of her novels are portrayed. They were all unique in this mad rush world or better say India.

None of the novels had a happy ending was what I was very disappointed about ๐Ÿ™ I do so hate sad endings ..
But .. the protagonist always found peace at the end ๐Ÿ™‚

Just as I finished the book Mahashwetha, my dad walked in and I narrated the complete story along with the postscript at the end of the novel where after reading the novel a guy after understanding the pain of the leukoderma patients, realizing his mistake, gets married to his girlfriend who was a victim of the disease. Sudha Murthy was invited to the marriage by the girl who felt her marriage would be complete if she visited her.
She also gifted Sudha Murthy a sari, which she holds to preciously remembering Malati’s (the bride) happy face each time ๐Ÿ™‚

I started ranting about no happy endings in her novels and my dad pointed out .. This story definitely has a happy ending, Malati ๐Ÿ™‚
He was right!

Sudha Murthy – You are an inspiration, ๐Ÿ™‚ Be it the philanthropic work or writing, spreading a piece of your mind is very important.
It was only after reading your “Wise and Otherwise” that I strongly felt I have to write/share my experiences in the various walks of life.

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
Please do continue writing and continue inspiring the younger generation of us ๐Ÿ™‚
