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. :)

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.
