Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  1. You are so right! I've also heard 'drains' called 'emotional vampires' and once they latch on to you...Boy! It's hard to shake them loose.
    It was a big problem for me when I was younger because I always want to take care of people, make them feel better, help fix their problems, and it took me awhile to realize that they really don't want help. Just your undivided, constant attention and the only way they are going to feel better is after they bring you down to where they are and I'm going to get off my soap box now and wander off before I babble you into unconsciousness.

  2. That is so true! I've never heard of the "radiators and drains" concept before, but it really makes sense. Cool post!

  3. These are good descriptions!..You are definately a radiator!..in my time I've also met fridges (cold people who leave you chilled)..Baths (people who are full and make you want to dive in and soak)..chemical toilets(they're full of crap) and I once knew someone who was a cross between a food processor and a waste disposal unit!

  5. Very nice said. What you have said is so true. Would you think that Radiators are true friends and Drains are acquaintances

  7. I would say that some friends or close relatives can be drains and some acquaintances can be radiators, even though you dont know them well.It just depends on how you feel after interacting with them.I got the glittery letters from glitter graphics.The website is www.glitter-graphics.com.Niall has given some more lovely descriptions of different kinds of people--so apt!!

  11. I remember reading this sometime ago and agreeing. I still do. I also had another thought stemmed off it -

    1. Can a radiator become a drain one day?
    2. How do u know that the drain is a phase, and when one needs to give up on the person, especially when the perspectives are as black and white. As in say Y has changed, and X understands and yet wants to hold on.

    Quite the thought process eh? :)

For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
