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."

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…
