He always made it a point to switch on the lights before stepping out of his room to go to the washroom in the middle of the night. He had a queer feeling that a pair of eyes was watching over him.

“I just want you to know that I love you.” And he held her hand tight as they knew that they were in this together.

It had only been 25 minutes since they had taken off for a trip of a lifetime to the beaches of Krabi when things started to go wrong.

What started as mild turbulence turned into a full blown emergency as the aircraft suddenly banked right and started descending rapidly causing mayhem all around with passengers who weren’t strapped up, food in the plates and even luggage all being thrown around as cries for help flooded the cabin.

Just when most thought that it was all about to end, things became normal as suddenly as they had started.

Microblog Mondays: The spirit of Neerja Bhanot

I can’t really get over the experience of watching the Bollywood flick – ‘Neerja‘. It’s the story of Neerja Bhanot, a 22 year old senior flight purser who died but not until she had saved more than 340 lives when 4 terrorists hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi way back in 1986.

Though she was young, she taught all of us so much about humanity and love that even the oldies could have learnt a lesson or two. The courage and thinking which she displayed in the time of despair was unmatched.

Rather than differentiating passengers based on their caste, creed, religion, region, gender and so on, she went all out to save each and everyone. It was as though even fear got scared looking her in the eye. She could have been the first one to escape but instead chose to stay on until every passenger had been evacuated safely.

While she was awarded by India, Pakistan and USA, her legacy lives on with the Neerja Bhanot Award which is given to a woman who has fought injustice in society with determination.

Buddy parenting – Does it work?

Does buddy parenting work?

There was a time when the sight of parents evoked fear, tension, nervousness and so on and so forth in children’s minds. But with the changing times, parents have also undergone a sea change. They have started acting more as buddies with their children empathizing with their problems, issues and difficulties rather than just acting as an overbearing and towering presence who do nothing more than scaring them. But does this so called buddy parenting work?

Most of us have always been averse to sharing the secrets of our relationships, bad habits, parties etc. with our parents. We are scared of them reprimanding us and putting up all sorts of restrictions to not let us do whatever we want. But isn’t that because we perceive parents as those humans who are always angry and looking to scare us? What if they behave like our best friends who listen to us and then advise us accordingly without jumping to any conclusions? What if they don’t judge us based on simple incidents in life? Wouldn’t it be a really delightful feeling?
