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?

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…

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.

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…

Do We Need Another Renaissance Movement?

I have never shared a lot of personal things about myself on this blog, but due to some recent happenings I couldn’t stop myself from sharing some things. I was born and raised in a Muslim family. My mother is a strict religious person and she never even likes to hear anything against Islam even if inside she knows it’s true and that’s why we end up having lot of arguments. I know now that I cannot change her and likewise I cannot change the strong headed people who are living like these puppets since birth.
