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."

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
