Hi — I am Preethi. To read the story of my life, you will simply have to wait for the paperback. But until then, read this, if you must REALLY know.
If given a choice, I wouldn’t budge from a hammock in a grassy meadow, where I would lie dreaming. Having said that, I have never used a hammock. I believe that Life is Beautiful. And I try to look for surreal signs to prove that. I go to the church and come out admiring the beauty of the flowers arranged at the altar. I trace raindrops dripping down a windowpane and sigh happily. I lick on orange-flavored ice candies and wish they would never end. I buy roadside junk jewelry and allow them to gather dust in my cupboard. I cry when I hear some songs. I laugh when I watch people. I dig Malayalam movies for their sheer simplicity and directness (If you disagree on this point, we have a movie date to set up). I am selfish about my solitude on Saturday afternoons. Yet, I yearn for people to be around me, at all times. My music ranges from head-banging Metal to mushy ballads, ghazals to oldies—anything that sounds nice to my ears. I read. I try to write. I sing. I play. I travel. I wander. I meander. I succeed. I fail. I judge. I am judged. I hope. I pray. I exist. And above all, I Live.
