Your clothes and you





Many people wear t-shirts which are handed out by companies that they work for, or given out as freebies which advertise the company product or logo. They do not seem to mind the fact that they are walking bill boards, advertising the company free of cost.And there is nothing wrong with that either,as after all, clothes are your personal choice.
I for one, will never wear any such T-shirt, though I have nothing against those who wear them.

I have my own collection of t-shirts that I find are “me”—whacky, humorous, or just appealing to me in some way.

These are all my favourite t-shirts that I often wear.

The red one says , “I don’t like to talk too much because Blah,blah blah,blah,blah ,blah blah,blah,blah ,blah, blah,blah,blah ,blah, blah, blah,blah,blah ,blah blah,blah,blah ,blah, blah,blah,blah,blah”

The others, you can see for yourself what they say!

Right now, I’m wearing the green one that says “Just friends” .I really laughed when I first spotted it in the store. The picture is a perfect answer to the age old question--Can a man and a woman be be ‘just friends’? Can a relationship between a man and a woman be just platonic? For centuries I think everyone has been debating this. “When Harry met Sally” remains one of the most popular movies on this theme.
If you ask me whether a man and woman can be just friends, I’d say “It depends on which man and which woman” Ha ha ha …. :-)

What do you say?

  1. Can a man and a woman be just friends?
    I say yes, my husband says no.
    He says that maybe a woman can be just friends with a man, but a man always thinks about other things...
    or maybe he's wrong...

    This is a good question for a poll!

    (I like the shirts, too.)

  2. Hey Sue--This is incredible! That is EXACTLY what my husband also says!! And I too tell him what you say! Maybe Men and women do think differently.Like John Gray says "men are from mars.women are from Venus" (I found that book really interesting)

  3. I certainly understand that Men and Women are 'wired' differently..Venus and Mars..(sometimes I'd say we're a universe away if I listen to some of the stances men take)but (and this sounds like an excuse)we are biologically preprogrammed to search for a mate..think magnets.Then add into the mix morality based on cultural and social and religious norms, rationale, oportunity and..... Saying that, I believe that men and women can share equally platonic relationships...and do.
    :-)))

  4. Friend yes. I say yes men and women can be friends. I think guys should learn to control there thoughts and after all we all have a choice on how to act towards one another.
    Any way love the tee shirts..

  5. I think the main difference is that a woman will never even think of sleeping with a guy she considers a just a friend, but a guy will sleep with a woman if she is physically appealing to him & is willing !! :-) Sorry--Guys, couldnt resist saying that!!

  6. Good question! My personal feeling is that a hetero man and a hetero woman cannot be friends for any length of time before one (or both) will start wondering, what if?? Now, if we're talking about a gay gay and a straight chick - absolutely! :) One of my favorite t-shirt "sayings" is on a shirt I bought my husband. It has a picture of a squirrel and says "Protect your nuts."

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.
