• Why I Would Choose My Husband Over My Kids?
    Diyaa | 15-Oct-2019
    Let me start this blog first by mentioning that I love my kids immensely. I can’t recollect what my life was like before I had them.  My kids are significantly important to me. Being a stay-at-home mom, I spend most of my time with them then with anyone else. My life right now revolves around them. My hubby and I have busy schedules and we get to barely spend a couple of our waking hours together. I equally love my husband just as I love my babies.  Many of you may dislike me saying this or even judge me for choosing my husband over my kids at this point. But, after giving it all of my thought I feel if there’s ever a time wherein I have to make a choice, I would definitely choose my husband over them and here are my reasons why... 1. WE CHOSE EACH OTHER  Being in an arranged marriage, whatever little choices I was given I chose to get married to my husband and so did he. We were the ones who decided to be by each other’s side for a lifetime and made

Peony asked why Hagen was turned into a sheep. his mother slyly replied, " hmm i don't know," Peony asked Hagen if he knew anything of the spell. He answered, " My mother cursed me. She tricked you, she did not know." Peony asked Hagen what his mother used to curse the spell. He said, "A stone hidden deep below the Volga." So they went to

  • The perfect mistake
    Diyaa | 11-Feb-2019
    Sara was a charming twenty-one years young lady who recently stepped into her newly wedded life. Couple of months into this wedlock, she was still trying to adjust to the new life. It was a novel experience for her, from changing homes to cities to friends and now families. Everything was different. Since she was young, she fitted herself very easily into her new space. Rahul, her husband worked with the Indian navy, because of which he had to shift his home base near the port. He had left his family soon after he joined work. His parents lived in a city which was three hours away from his.   He was used to living alone many months of the year while the other months he sailed to far off places. He took good care of Sara now that he had her around. He made her feel very comfortable in his world. Clubbing, dinners, movies had filled their days. They even did groceries together. She remembered their honeymoon to snowcapped mountains in the Swiss. That one week had really bought them close to each other.

  • Happy Women's Day!!!
    Jyoti | 08-Mar-2018
    International Women’s Day is being celebrated today everywhere but is it enough for us females? Women will be made to feel special today, pampered, offered discounts at all the stores and hotels but what after today? I am not against this celebration but I just want women to feel special and safe on all the days and not just one single day! In today’s age, daily we hear and see events which are degrading females, be it at the home front or the workplace. The graph of a women’s life is measured by her marriage, number of kids, her family and not her intelligence, work or promotion. People cannot tolerate women in superior positions and assume that she has used her female powers to reach the position. They cannot believe that she can manage family as well as work both efficiently. Even in the high societies, women are facing these problems. These problems cannot be eradicated until the mindset of our society changes. Even highly educated people can have narrow mindsets and it is very difficu

  • When I unburdened my husband from my unrealistic expectations!
    Diyaa | 06-Nov-2017
    I sit here gazing at the orange sky… looking at the sun bidding us adios for the day, peacefully returning to where it came from. Not too far across I spot a pair of eagles sitting on the coconut tree, staring away, they look mesmerised by what they see. Standing very close to each other yet lost away in their own worlds. They gaze into serenity and enjoy the quietness this place has to offer. If u wonder what I’m doing here sitting still in this fast paced world or judging me for having all the time to gaze at two aimlessly sitting birds! Nah! This is my time that I stole from my family for 30 mins. The swim I took just before this with my son did give us good bonding time. So this one I truly deserve. There's nothing more refreshing than my hot cup of cardamom tea after a good exercise. Couple of floors down below I see my toddler run around with the nanny. I take the liberty to enjoy this scene from far without interfering much. Where did the idea of doing this pop from? Well, I just met a lad

  • How Kannagi’s Wedding was Fixed
    Sunanda Kesavadas | 27-Jul-2017
    On the morning of Kannagi akka’s thirtieth birthday paati made payasam and served it with an unsmiling face. Akka was getting late for work, so she did not notice or chose not to notice the anger in her mother’s eyes.Later when they were preparing lunch paati said to Amma, or rather ground her teeth and growled, ‘Thirty years old! Thirty! By the time I was thirty I was mother to five children. And this ungrateful daughter of mine will not even let me die in peace. 'There was one proposal last year,' Paati continued, 'One! An engineer! They were even willing to forgo the dowry since she is in a government job. But our madam! Oh! He was not good enough for her. Now God only has to help us. How can I die in peace if she is not settled?'It was a little worrying that paati might be dying but soon our attention was caught by thaatha arriving with the latest comics newspaper and we all ran out to meet him. Thaatha would read out the comics using different voices for each character and make all the

This story is about every girl & women who has been through a sabbatical at normal life or work or studies or any activity that was her agenda. The many reasons for sabbatical could be – shifting to a new city, a maternity leave, to take care for some family member who is sick, choosing the wrong path for academics, acute health issue, etc. The purpose of writing this is, I have experienced a sabbatical from my profession and am now in a way getting back to the thing that keeps me going – My Work ! Though not in a “conventional job” but in way that suits me, works well for my family and personal space.

  • IS WAR GOOD OR BAD?
    Ankita Kulkarni | 06-Jul-2017
    The Oxford dictionary describes war as “A state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states and nations”. It also describes it as,”The art or science of warfare”. But is war really an art? Is there any scientific aspect to it? Is war good or bad is a very common question that is asked all around the world. But is there really a correct answer to this question. As the Oxford dictionary says, it is a hostile conflict between two or more nations. This hostility emerges due to either conflicting ideas or disobeying of laws. Laws are created and kept in place to maintain peace and discipline in any society. Breaking any of these laws leads to chaos which further leads to war. Similarly, when two or more nations have conflicting ideas over a common issue such as the India Pakistan conflict over the occupancy of Kashmir, it leads to war. But why do we need war? Coming back to the question of is war good or bad, I would start by asking that do we really need war? In a wo

    ...go ahead and spring clean that relationship!                                                                                                - Gouri Dange Just about everyone spring cleans their homes, at least once a year. We do it, not as a chore, but as a chance to run our eye and our duster over all our possessions - cleaning, mending, discarding, replacing. It’s the same with our cars – servicing, regular fuel filling, maintaining tyre pressure, cleaning inside and out, listening out for any odd noises. However, it is the most important relationships in our lives - the ones that will outlive our homes and cars and careers and even our bodies – that we neglect thoroughly. We treat them as if they’re completely weather-proof, Teflon-coated, m

  • I opened the door and quietly sneaked in
    Manali Jobanputra | 27-Apr-2017
    I opened the door and quietly sneaked in.  My racing heartbeats stopped as I saw him sleep peacefully, unaware of the unpardonable sin I had committed. I couldn’t bring myself to sleep over it so I chose to brood over the events of the past day with a cup of hot brew. The aroma from the coffee spread around and his wild fragrance faded away.  The taste of roasted beans washed away the flavor of his lips that had been lingering on since the last kiss. The warmth of the cup, replaced the warmth of his palms. I sat there intoxicated by his charm, unwilling to accept the reality.   I had loved him for a decade and with every moment that passed, I loved him more. The unpardonable sin, of going and meeting the Man of My Dreams had seen its end. This was the last I saw of him, as I had an unasked Husband to cater to. My love, my dreams, my career, all had been sacrificed to please the duo that raised me; My Parents.  Answering nostalgia’s one last call, I buried all the memories dee

    #KalamequalityEQUALITY, easier said than practised. Equality needn't always be confined to treating the men and women equally, it can also be about treating your mother and Mother in law or Your daughter and daughter in law equally as well.But nowadays it's more about "women power",  "My choice" !! But how many women actually have the courage to say, "My life, My choice?” CHOICE, do we really have one? Right from the day that a girl is born, she is moulded to fit the perfect category. Who says ISI marking is only for products and services? It's not mentioned in the matrimonial ads, but that's what is expected from a bride to be! A girl or a boy, everyone has a dream to follow, a goal to achieve, a passion to fulfill…. Don't they deserve an equal chance to achieve it? As parents of a boy, you feel a sense of pride and achievement in seeing your son achieve in life what he wanted to. Give the same chance to your daughter in law, so that her parents can share the same feelings. For me, Femi

  • Gear up women-its time to save your tribe
    Diyaa | 25-Oct-2016
     "Pl don’t touch my child!" Cried Neha. It was very late at night when Neha’s mother in law had shut the house doors on her and locked them from in. Only till a few minutes before the scene was different, the quiet looking daughter in law had gotten tired of her in-laws taunts and moved down for some fresh air. She had left her 6 yr. old daughter sleeping in the room. After regaining her sanity she returned home to face a whole new bunch of bad glares from her in-laws. But to her shock the door had been shut for the night. She pleaded them and cried for sometime, when the door was finally unlocked. Her only thoughts were those for the safety of her daughter who was not liked by her grand parents. The 6 yr. old Aisha had not done anything to deserve such negative vibes from her own grandparents at such raw age. Neha feared her daughter being harmed by them or them not accepting her for the night. Where would have she gone with no money and no where to go?It was now close to six months now that
