Three little Kittens




Click on the photos to enlarge .The third kitten is a bit shy and refuses to pose for the camera!

Dogs and children for some reason, gravitate towards me! I’m really good with both. I can spend hours in the company of dogs or children, without getting bored.

I’m not a cat person. I don’t hate them either, like some people do. Then again, I love most animals and since childhood, I’ve always had a variety of pets, ranging from a rescued bird that couldn’t fly, hamsters, fishes, a rescued kitten, a rescued squirrel, and dogs. I was forever, bringing home, one kind of animal or the other. In one of the places that I lived in, my house was next to a Blue Cross shelter. I was a familiar figure there.

Now, these three kittens and their mother have clawed their way into my life, with their cuteness ,charm, cunningness and antics. I have a patio that leads into the garden, and there is a rocking chair there, where I usually read my morning newspaper. The kittens have now discovered the joy of rocking! I laughed when I saw the bewildered expressions when they first climbed on it. And now,by Jove, they rock!

  1. Not surprisingly I like cats, but then I pretty much am an animal lover! I have also had various pets in my life - fish, injured birds, budgerigars, rabbits, dogs, cats, hamsters and such like. Of course, at the moment I have a dear old cat named Bob who is 17 years old and outside of my realtives is the longest relationship I have had in my life so far!

    Those kittens are so cute. I love the way the last one is popping up behind the chair adn the picture of the two with the bowl is fantastic!

  2. Bob-Kat: No wonder, we both have the same seduction style! Animal lovers --Hunters in seduction :-)Freud would have a field day on analysing this connection!!

    BTW,I showed my daughter your blog (The absolutely marvellous photos,I had to share) She wanted to know if you were really a cat, and whether cats could write!! (I laughed so much) Of course,later when I thought about it,I realised that in all the childrens story books, animals do talk.And she has seen my blog, and seen my photo on the right side.So she presumed that whoever writes the blog will have their picture displayed! Will tell her about your cat, Bob.

  4. Sweeties!
    I can spend long periods of time watching animals interact too. Even this afternoon, I went to visit my "borrowed cats" and I laughed so much at their behaviour. I can't say the same for children. Well, it depends on whether they're well-behaved or lunatic, but most of the ones I know are insane...:=)

  5. Aw, so falttered that you showed your daughter my blog and it is so cute (and so natural) that she assumed I am a cat.

    I borrowed my cats name when I first started blogging as I had no idea what to expect from the virtual world and wanted to keep my anonymity. I kind of like being a cat :-)

    Freud would have a field day with the hunter / animal lover thing wouldn't he? LOL!!

  6. Aw, too cute! Who can resist kittens?!! So sad that they have to grow into cats and become all aloof and indifferent. Oh wait, that's me, no, kittens will be fine, not to worry. :)

  7. I had a cat who sadly died in 2003..she was 17 years old. I love cats!..in fact this has been the longest I've lived without a cat all my life. My daughter Annie would love a cat..so this year I plan to find another!!

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 Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
