Am Rads.

Another blogger with one too many facets that I think are too cool to not share with the world.

I write about whatever catches my fancy at – Tunneling Thru’ –    Started off in 2005 in Blogger, then WordPress and since a couple of years here at my own space.  I like what I write here. This has been my safe haven and a comfort for many days and years and events that happen(ed) in my life. This is probably the most Ive vested in, after my children.

Then there is a small collection of fictional experiments that are now found labeled under Fables 

I have a collection that are being honed for public viewing in a better format soon. That’s all am allowed to say :-)

Am also a picture-crazy trigger-happy person and I like to put up certain pictures I click and have something to say on, apart from what it speaks for itself. Modest Nikon d60 user who’s just begun to take herself a little more seriously. I love the camera and what my eyes see through it. There’s a collection on my photo blog here, where I combine my love for both writing and the picture. Then there is the Flickr collection  and also a very incomplete public album sets on Facebook 

Also bitten by the camera on the iPhone, and so the collection on Instagram is here.

I have felt strongly about girl power and the many amazingly ordinary woman who possess extraordinary grit and power to make a difference in their lives and in others. I showcase on a fortnightly basis a peek into their lives and you can catch them all here on my blog: So, what’s her story. 

I also run a fortnightly newsletter . Sign up here if you’d like? 

I have been freelancing awhile now and am taking it to the next step and putting it out here on the blog as well. I am available to write guest posts and reviews and similar writing assignments. Please note that I will accept only assignments that I feel are in tune with my principles and not all that come my way have been accepted before or will.

Just a disclaimer :)

Updated July 2011

Am all of the below, more of a few and less of some other few, and then I’ve added on a few and that’s how we grow.  Was away for the longest time, and it scared me recently that perhaps I would have lost this part of me, and maybe I have to an extent, but am holding on to what I own and have, and so back here.

If you do want to read me, start with the tags or Pages – Funnies, and then Life.

Here’s a comprehensive link guide to all things Rads on the internet.


It is always a pleasure to hear back, so make your presence felt. You do matter. Everyone does.

  1. holy mother of god…i read your last post after i asked you to drop by…..don’t bother now….jeez…it will evince no such ‘superlative’ words for sure….oopsie daisies…: (

  2. Rads, Did December stud read this page ? I can expect one blog post relating this topic about being super women..

    s.b – hmm, Is your about page on the blog updated with the definition of average man ?

  3. Ok: ..and why would I want that? So that he’d sit at home and I continue to roast in the kitchen serving breakfast, lunch and dinner? :-D

    Apar: Of course it is average. We all have it in us ;-)

  4. Hi, I am sorry for being late in responding to your kind comment. But then that is me. Among the various things you are, you forgot to add “sentimental poet”!

  5. aaha, nee(ngalum)yum thamizha? :-) thanks for dropping by… and of course added your blog to my google-reader.

    and no worries about the nee/nga confusion… nee is definitely fine.. :)

  6. Dhyuthi: Advice ivvadaniki ki em bhagyam. Bangaram kaadukada? :P
    Jokes apart, yea, just be yourself. No one else is gonna do you favors no? :)

    Zeppelin: lol, yea, am a cat on the wall. I jump to either side (telugu/tamil)according to situation or whoever is nicer to me ;-p

  7. Hi Rads,
    Must you start your introduction with ‘A mommy, a wife’?

    (I understand you have listed roles in order of importance….but I must admit those two words kinda turn-off :)

  8. Swaps: Mommy and wife are turn off roles? :O

    Thinking back, I jotted stuff down randomly, not priority based as that would mean that am hardly passionate, which cannot be far from the truth!
    Each role or character plays out on demand accordingly. I have my identity intact, no confusion there :)

    monsterbox: But of course! ;-)

  9. usha: o no! I am not everything at all. I can be a bit of everything at different times. All women are.

    Haishadow: Yes, I do, and my reply to usha holds for you too. :)

  10. hello, great blog! Was attracted by your ‘dark circles’ on Solilo’s blog!

    My! My! so popular this blog; so many comments! I have submitted a quick review on blogged too! :D

    Expect me after nov. ; presently very busy (and please poke me If I don’t show up). Thanks.

  11. Hi,
    I was curious what it would take to get a text link on your blog saying something like “Tungsten Wedding Bands” or “Tungsten Wedding Rings” with a hyperlink to our site (www.tungstenringsonline.com).  We are a relatively new company and we are currently trying to improve our page ranking on Google.  We operate on a small budget, and we would be more than willing to give you a tungsten ring from our site in exchange for a link.  Let me know if this would be something that you would be interested in.  Thanks for any help you can give us.
    Thank You
    Tungsten Rings Online

    • Nick, I usually don’t trade links and am not interested in a link back or traffic, am good where I am, thank you :-)

      However, there’s a frankness and a politeness in your request, and I liked that. So one of these days I’ll go ahead and link your site up if I write a post on marriage and stuff? Would that suffice?

  12. Hello,

    My name is Phil Davies from mytrafficgoals.com which is a search engine optimization company. While carrying out some searches today I came across your website kowthas.wordpress.com and wanted to contact you to discuss the possibility of an indirect link exchange.

    A client of mine has engaged my services to improve their website’s search engine rankings by exchanging links with sites like yours. Your website’s search engine ranking can also benefit from the exchange and there is no cost at all to you as my client is paying me for my services.

    If you would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    Phil Davies
