When you think of Goa, you think of booze, good looking men & women, beaches, the sun & sands, churches and so on.

Whenever he saw his friends with their respective girlfriends, all he could do was curse his luck. Despite the looks to die for and the intelligence anyone dreams off, he had always met women who were chasing his money.

And then, he found her. Her ethereal beauty was enough to swipe him off his feet.

I am participating in the A to Z challenge in April  and the theme I have chosen is Micro-fiction

In today’s day and age, everyone talks about equality between men and women in every sphere of life. Whether its professionally in the corporate boardrooms or sharing chores at home, women expect to be treated at par with their male counterparts. But there’s a thin line between treating women equally or specially. Which one do they prefer?

Friendship – Does gender really matter?

Friends with the opposite gender.. Is it possible?

Friends with the opposite gender.. Is it possible?

Source: http://www.yourengagement101.com/daily-101/files/2009/04/just_friends.jpg?w=300

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.

Surname – To change or not to change?

Surname – To change or not to change?

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.

“A woman’s place is at home.”

“The woman of the house is the one who handles the kitchen.”

“The woman of the house should be the one who cleans and tidies the house.”

A lot of us must have heard many or all the above statements being uttered by relatives in our respective homes. This is just a miniscule snapshot of what society thinks even today. But why this mindset? Why is the women expected to work like a machine at home while the man relaxes after a tough day at work? Can’t a woman work outside home as well?

Are you a real braveheart?

Rapes, Sexual Harassment, Molestation & much more – Women in India face all of this each and every day of their lives. Whether its in offices, buses, stadiums or also sometimes at home from family members, women have to face the brunt of disgusting actions by men everywhere. Even after this, parents don’t control their sons but instead put up all kinds of restrictions on their daughters. Whether its about wearing the right clothes to avoid being stared at or not going out beyond 9pm at night, women are made to follow the rules because men can be beasts whenever they feel like, right?

Someone has said that it’s very easy to be sad but really difficult to be happy. But I always made it a point that things shouldn’t affect me too much. My mantra was to live life king size without any tensions or fears. You never know what’s coming tomorrow. There is no point in spoiling your today just because tomorrow maybe bad. I was doing well at college, had a good group of friends and had a loving family. Life was bliss to say the least. This was until a month ago when my uncle came to stay over at our place.

Politics in India – Abuse and makes the news!

Politics
Source: http://soilmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Politics.jpg

Politics is a game which few people want to get into. Though everyone cribs that we don’t get good ministers in our Parliament, no one wants to even think of joining politics. Why waste your time in the country when you can live a great life outside the country? Why take the pain of developing the nation when nothing has happen for years on end. The young generation thinks so on and so forth. But then what we get is a group of people who keep abusing each other, abusing our country and the trust we have put in them. Some don’t even seem happy with abuse. They go to the extent of throwing chairs, knives, pepper spray and god knows what at each other. And even then, we call ourselves a democracy.

Manifestos, development of the people, welfare blah blah are all passe. Who cares about it when you can fight with your opponent just by abusing him? If one calls his opponent ‘impotent’, another brings the word ‘nightwatchman’. Then there are others who call each other jokers, ‘man of low stands’ and many other things.
