Abusing and ill-treating our elders has become more common than ever in today’s fast paced world. These are the same elders who take care of our every need from the time we are born. These are the same elders who answer our every innocent query. These are the same elders who woke up at night when we cried as babies or even teenagers. But when the same teenagers become old enough, they feel that abusing and disrespecting elders isn’t really a big deal.

Be it our parents, uncles or aunts, we always tend to have arguments with our elders on anything and everything under the sun as we reach our teenage years and beyond. Everyone talks about ‘generation gap’ being the main reason for all the problems. What’s this generation gap all about? Simply put, its the  feeling among youngsters that the elders don’t understand them while the elders feel that they are best placed to guide the youngsters since they have seen many ups and downs in life. And there begins the clash.

Dear God,

Most of us tend to remember you only when we are in trouble. Whether it is praying the night before a major event in our lives like an exam, an interview, a marriage or ridiculing you if something doesn’t go as planned, we tend to voice our angst all the time. Very rarely do we stop t0 think that things may not actually be going right because of our mistakes in one way or the other. Moreover, when things do go right, so many of us actually take the credit rather than give it to you. By now, have you become thick skinned to such situations?

“He works as a sales agent but smells so awful all the time. Wonder how would he even sell his products when people would hate even sitting next to him?”

“Guys who don’t care about their body odour are such a turn off as far as I am concerned.”

“For me, working hard is only part of the deal. The personality of each employee should reflect the seriousness for which they are here. Whether its looking good or smelling good, presentation always matters.”

I am sure many of us would have come across few or all of the above situations. There are so many of us who think that smelling good isn’t really that important. If you are busy at office working all day along, why should your looks matter? Shouldn’t your superiors only worry about your work rather than your personality?

He had seen her for the first time during his brother’s wedding. She looked angelic in the pink saree she had worn for the day. Every time she danced, a strand of her hair fell on her face which she brushed away with her fingers. He was lost in her thoughts throughout the wedding and beyond.

Being the extrovert he was, Ronnie went ahead and proposed Anna quite literally in front of everyone. And the rest as they say was history.

What do we miss the most about our loved ones?

Our loved ones are our world. They help keep us happy and smiling all the time. Whether in times of distress and despair or in times of happiness, their presence helps keep us sane and grounded. But what if we don’t have them around us?

There are so many times in our lives when we fight or have an argument with our friends and family. While in most cases, we are able to resolve the matter after a bit of talking, there are some cases, where arguments cause irreparable damage so much so that people stop talking to each other for years. One of the biggest reasons is ego as both the parties think that the other should apologize. Meanwhile, life moves on and people end up losing track of each others lives. It’s as though those loved ones become unimportant.

Friendship – Does gender really matter?


Friends with the opposite gender.. Is it possible?

Friends with the opposite gender.. Is it possible?

From the time we are small, our friends and Bollywood movies all around us teach us that a girl and a boy can never be friends. A lot of parents feel that mixing with the opposite gender can lead to their children losing their way in their studies. And therefore, many prefer their children going to an only-boys or an only-girls school. They feel that with the absence of the opposite gender, their children’s minds wouldn’t wander and they would concentrate completely on their studies. Is that really the case?

Interestingly, from what I have heard from friends who have studied in only-boys schools, their minds wander a lot more into useless activities in classrooms and beyond compared to those who studied in co-ed institutions. The main reason for this is the fact that guys try to be at their best behavior when in the company of the opposite gender.

In societies across the world, the practice has always been for women to take their husband’s surname after marriage. As per the so called tradition which all of us have been accustomed to, women get rid of their family (father’s) surname as soon as they get married.  But why is it required? As someone said – What’s in a name?

It’s always said that changing surnames keeps things quite easy. If we consider our personal documents like passports, marriage certificates etc. people tend to raise eyebrows if both the husband and wife have different surnames. Why do they raise eyebrows? Answer: Because it has been followed as a practice for years on end.
