    For A ‘Change’ Only

    Its Monday folks! The worst day of the week you bet, where I am always running late in the morning for everything. The Fun day (Sunday) makes me so sluggish that it has become a habit to forget one or a few things at home and repent later. But this Monday, I am in no hurry as you can see; I am writing! 🙂 Thanks to Pt Nehru, our first Prime minister; it’s his birthday today and our country celebrates it as ‘Children’s Day’ which is really cool. Why? Come on, we all have our days, don’t we? So first of all, here’s me wishing every kid over there, a…

    Ladies Verses No-Man

    Ladies entering the Sanctum Sanatorium of Shani Shingnapur for the first time in History, may be making headlines but what caught my attention today, was a statement given by a prominent spiritual man of the country. He actually solved the mystery behind the deadly disaster that took thousands of life in the year 2013. Yes, I am talking about the Kedarnath Catastrophe. According to him, the ‘unholy’ activities of honeymooners and the picnickers are the ‘raison d’être’ for such Nature’s fury. Do you believe that? Here is more, He also has equally confident opinions on the current drought conditions in Maharashtra! While reading, I was constantly hunting for the expected name…

    So…What’s Your Religion?

    World has become a difficult place to live; People are fighting over anything and everything. But the most prominent factor which always remains ‘in’ for debates is the ‘religion’. I was never told about my religion by anyone; it automatically got imprinted in my mind after being part of numerous rituals and customs. And one day when a form asked my religion, my hands didn’t pause, even for a second, to write ‘Hindu’ in the column. I didn’t hesitate because it’s the years-long conditioning and I never thought of asking, what’s the religion? What’s a Hindu? Partly because I believed, our religion is what we are born with. Hence, I…

    No Women Please!!

    Have you ever noticed,while remembering  GOD, your head automatically raises, you stare into the sky and close your eyes as if HE is up there, listening and witnessing everything…. When I was a child, I too believed that GOD lives in the sky in an invisible huge form and from there, takes care of his children on Earth. Well back then, I didn’t have a slightest idea that his all children are not ‘equal’. Although he gave us all, the equal liberty of praying but only man was privileged to enter many of his earthly residences. Now that I saw it myself, couldn’t help but share it with you people. Remember, I…

    Tolerance versus Common-sense

    Few days back I happen to come across a blog regarding INDIA, The foreign writer shared many good and bad experiences while his stay here. Though I might be upset for many things but at the same time, I have more reasons to love my country and definitely felt offended at certain points and thought, “How could someone be so judgemental?” I mean, “Not every street of this second most populous country in the world is dung-stained! And not all Indians, sleep anywhere they find a space to fit in (we do have descent homes!).You may have a privilege to live a life which many Indians or many humans, for that…

    No ‘Gudiya’ after a ‘Pudiya’

    In India, festival fever is in-the-air. After pleasing our ancestors, we recently celebrated ‘Navratras’. Many of us queued up the temples; stayed grainless for days; did every sort of religious stuff and searched for ‘little girls’ to be worshiped (‘Kanya Poojan’) in order to complete this many-days-long ritual. Because of prevailing ‘Girls paucity’, booking starts beforehand. Ironically, we never mind standing and waiting for hours in the streets for little girls, for a proclaimed worship but not many of us want to hear, ‘it’s a girl!’, while waiting outside the delivery room. Why this double standard? I remember, when my daughter was born, many visitors were awfully grief-bound as I…
