[caption id="attachment_720" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Forgiving – A Rare Virtue[/caption] Forgiving – A Rare Virtue Few days back, I saw two small children hitting and fighting with each other. They did everything possible to satisfy their anger. The most amusing part was pulling each other’s hair. Seeing them fight, my childhood scenes were refreshed. The unceasing physical and verbal fights with my sister and endless patch ups were a regular scene in our house. Coming back to the present fight of these children, it seemed like a never ending battle. Then the divine angel, in the form of the mother came, gave one tight slap to both and all the fights came to a standstill. Both of them were instructed to say sorry and settle the quarrels with each other immediately.…

[caption id="attachment_712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Gender Equality[/caption] An Open Letter to the most respected Society Dear Society, At the outset, I would like to congratulate and thank you for priming some of your fragments as per the evolution. I came into this world empty handed. I appreciate what I have received as the byproducts of the societal evolution, in the form of closely knitted parents, siblings, extended families, and beautiful friendships for a lifetime, of course with specific disclaimers in every stage of life. In your society, men and women coexists. One is always dependent on the other. This is how the cycle of evolution leads generation after generation. This is nature’s phenomena, which even you as a society cannot eradicate. Having said that, gender discrimination between men and women, has…

A few days back my partner was trying to pen down notes for a course, which he is pursuing. After writing two lines, he got back to the online google sheets. In a matter of few minutes, it was obvious, that, he was completely out of touch of using pen and paper for a while. That’s when the whole inconclusive debate about technology meddling our age old habits began. In our school days, we are always coached to write and practice our curriculum. It was the most annoying method of…

[caption id="attachment_693" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Time - The Secret and Irreplaceable Ingredient[/caption] The Irreplaceable Ingredient of Relationships In the past decade, I personally witnessed the changing social dynamics of relationships. Thanks to the technological encroachment for infusing sweetness and bitterness in relationships. We are able to relish the joy of connecting with our loved ones in no time. It is a fact, that we are more privileged and liberated than any other generation of the past. However, knowingly or unknowingly even today relationships are always taken for granted. The effort to nurture an enduring relationship is lacking. The secret ingredient for any relationship to last long is lost, regardless of the title. This secret ingredient is well known. Yet we are ignorant about the same. Yes. You are right. Time is…

Crossing the Edge

[caption id="attachment_690" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Crossing the Edge[/caption] Crossing the Edge We all have a secret space in our heart. The love and respect for that space is impeccable. We do not like if someone tries to dig in that private zone. There are plenty of emotions buried inside the private zone. We do not share it with anybody, regardless of whether they are parents, siblings or life partner. It is absolutely discourteous and awful if anybody intrudes our privacy. Crossing the edges of that space without our permission creates bruises in the relationships. This emotion is mutual to all of us. When I say ‘Us’ it is implied even for the famous personalities and celebrities as well. Unfortunately, we as the audience along with the media, always cross those edges. We…

At times, this is what seeds story ideas. Consequently, I overheard a conversation of three mothers. They were debating about the type of schools that they wished to get admission for their children who had completed their primary education. As per the conversation, since the children were stepping into the adolescent phase, they wanted to shift them from coeducation school to a single sex school. The single sex schooling will offer zero distractions for children and they would focus better on their education. I was amazingly startled by the point of view on the subject. Surprisingly, all the three, agreed with each other’s, old…
