Does Every Modern Marriage Need a Breathing Space?

Divorce rates are increasing day by day. It’s sad but true that people can so quickly walk out of one of the most sacred relationship whose foundation is guided by vows of togetherness taken in front of the almighty. I’m not against divorce per say, if two people are not compatible, it is better to break apart and live individual peaceful lives instead of suffering the unsaid everyday. But what is saddening is that in many cases it happens due to interference from the parents especially if you end up living in a joint family with in-laws. I got married Continue to read the rest of the article…

How About Asking “Who I Am” Instead?

Any normal conversation you pick with a stranger, the first thing they would ask you, “What do you do?” I wonder, what I do for a living doesn’t have anything to do with who I am and yet a strange person is all set to form a complete characterization of my identity based on this one question. That’s why it is annoying that all our conversations have to start with the dreaded question, “what do you do?” As a society, we are obsessed with our jobs. Our obsessions stretch to a level where our profession becomes our self-identity and our Continue to read the rest of the article…


Just Became a Mother and Losing it Already?

It was one of the most precious moments of my life when my doctor took him out of my vagina and put him on my tummy. He was the most adorable baby you’ve ever seen and I was just grateful to God that it was mine. He was amazing, smiling and playing most of the time, adorable during the day but terrible at night. Yes, you guessed it right, he was not a great sleeper. He wanted to nurse all night long and somehow it took the fun out of nursing. I still love it but going without proper sleep Continue to read the rest of the article…


Whose Child Is It, Anyways?

A child – One of the most precious gifts of God. From the moment he is born, he fills our hearts with happiness and joy. But whose child is it anyways? God Says – It is mine coz I have sent him from heaven directly in to the mother’s womb. At least that’s what happened to Mother Mary. Mother Says – It is mine coz I carried him for nine months, feed him my milk and stay awake whole night so that he can sleep well. Father Says – It is mine coz scientifically it wouldn’t be born without my Continue to read the rest of the article…


The Greatest Feeling – Let Go and Be Stronger

“Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.” ~Dalai Lama We all want to be happy, feel good about our lives, and yet we get attached to things that bring us nothing but grief and pain. A job, home or friends, there are so many things to which unknowingly we get so attached that if changed they leave us heart broken. But one lesson that I have learned in my life is that in order to become stronger, you need to let go things that make you Continue to read the rest of the article…


Baby Naming Conundrum

I’m going to be a first time mother soon, in approximately 7-8 days and we are faced with the first of the many problems – Naming of our child.  Ideally, choosing our own baby’s name should have been a fun, inspired endeavor, but we are facing the worst of the baby naming problems. Too many suggestions: Me and my husband had started off selecting names privately which we kind of finalized as well. But apparently, all other family members also were thinking on their own. My mother-in-law wanted to keep name of her choice, my father-in-law apparently went with what Continue to read the rest of the article…


In Search of the Long Lost Love

“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” – It is a famous line from ‘Forrest Gump’. It is so true though, we always keep planning things only to encounter the most unplanned incidents in the path. Today was a day which gave me recall of a long lost part of my life. It took me back to my old school days when I was just a young teenager of 12 years. I had a classmate who was very shy but would always keep looking at me from crooked eyes or try Continue to read the rest of the article…


Acid Attack, Really? Have Men Fallen This Low?

Are you betrayed in love by someone? Did someone reject your proposal? Well here is the solution, “Buy our cheap acid and throw it on face of the person hurting you”. This could easily be the marketing mantra for people who are selling acids in general stores. After all it is a cheap product, the sellers never question why someone wants to buy and they really don’t care also. In fact concentrated acid is so easily available that you can buy a whole bucket of it and drown someone in it and it would hardly cost you few dollars. Acidic Continue to read the rest of the article…


Confessions of An Escort – What they think about Sex, Love and Fun!

Recently one of my clients came to me with a requirement to make a website for an elite escort agency. It’s not a usual request, but I eventually took up the work just to get some diversity in my portfolio. The website is simple, it lists online profiles of various escorts, you can browse through them, select the one which you like, and book it. If you look at the profiles yourself, most of the girls are super-pretty, sexy and extremely glamorous. One look at them, you would realize why most of the men are willing to cheat on their Continue to read the rest of the article…
