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!!

    Over the years there has been: Sammy, Winky, Tiggy, Beauty, Moses and Zippy, Baggins, Misty, Smeagol and finally Dusty. Cats names are fantastic!..isn't that right..er..Bob?

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
