Men will be men, will be men!!

  Men......! What was God thinking when he got down to creating them, I will always wonder! And after trying to change them in all these years, we women have not been successful.....at all! Not that I have anything against them as such...I mean, we would never be able to survive without them. But, there are certain habits or idiosyncrasies  of these creatures that do get to me...to all of us women, I am sure. There is so much to write about them ; I have written in an earlier blog- a letter to God on what changes we would appreciate in the future production of this species; but, it isn't much. Thats because we keep spotting something or other about them that needs to be talked about. Pent up emotions create a havoc on my system and thus, this blog , which I am writing on behalf of my 'sisters', many of who will agree with me.
   We all may have observed it...there is this very irritating habit of men that needs to be done to death. And that is.....even when they are out with their wives/girlfriends, they busy themselves with admiring other women/girls instead of admiring their own! I mean, come on, guys....you have your partners WITH you, look at THEM! Admire them, appreciate them for what they are, at least when they are with you. When you are by yourselves, you may look anywhere you wish to, admire God's art work to your heart's content, but, definitely NOT when we are with you! Yes, we may be ugly ducklings in your eyes, but, hello!....we chose you, too! Remember? We may have been married to you /with you for many years, and thus, 'old and boring', but duh....DITTO!! We still have eyes only for you....well, at least when we are with you!! Hehehe...
     Come on, guys, bring a change in yourselves....for old times' sakes. See, as of now and here, THIS is  the only point I am going to touch upon. So, at least pretend to learn a thing or two. When you are with your girls, LOOK/ADMIRE THEM, GIVE THEM YOUR UNDIVIDED ATTENTION....not other girls...in short, don't be those silly table fans, be the air-conditioners that are focused on one point! Okay? I mean, look, frankly, we too have a lot to look at when we are outdoors.....God has created such beautiful specimens that actually, at times, we really don't know whom to gawk at!!! But, we don't do that..when we are with you, do we? That would drive you up the wall, won't it? So, lets make it a give and take thing...you admire us and we do the same...or else, we embarrass you, what say you??

On love and attachments.

Learning to live without the person whom we loved more than our life is one of the toughest things we humans experience during our life.
Almost every moment of our day we spend in their shadows, enveloped in their love; we don't even realise when they became an extension of our selves. We come to accept them along with their flaws, their peculiarities, which often have the potential to drain us of our patience. Yet, we love them, unconditionally, at times wondering how we survived before they entered our world. Often, we also wonder how we will ever survive after they leave our world.

The human mind is such.  Its ability to give birth to a thought and then mull over it however unpleasant it may be, is quite baffling! We realise we stand to lose our sanity if we don't get rid of that negative thought; we understand how important it is to live in the moment and enjoy it with the loved ones we fear losing someday, yet we keep worrying ourselves to death about what would happen t…

You are The Man!

I admit, I am late in discussing this event, but did you watch the controversial 'Koffee with Karan' episode, two weeks ago? The one where the ubertalented Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan were Karan Johar's guests on his famous couch, sipping coffee along with him? Did you notice Kangana's confidence and her sassiness?   Do you remember her repartees, her jibes, her ripostes that were well-aimed at Mr. Johar? How fearlessly she spoke her mind without mincing words! And, she was in conversation with one of the Big Daddies of Bollywood.

I confess, I am an admirer of Ms. Ranaut, and I was blown away by her candour. The fact that she gave two hoots about diplomacy, and about the men in power in the hindi film industry,  shows how self-assured she is. She wasn't born into the industry, with a silver spoon; she entered the industry as an "outsider", who, despite being written off by the industry bigwigs, worked her way up the very competitive ladder, right to…

How I wish I could turn back the clock!

"Youth comes but once in a life time!"

             Traversing through  life, how often do we look back wistfully at our past and wish we could go back, wish we could live it all over again, just one more time?   Each time we witness the young around us enjoying life, enjoying their freedom and pursuing dreams with an enviable vigour, how we wish we could swap places! Sigh.

             A few days ago, I happened to have a chat with a 23 year old cousin. Excited about her future and the plans she had chalked out for herself, she had quite a lot to share with me. The sparkle in her eyes and the enthusiasm in her voice spoke a lot about how eager she was to embark upon the path she had chosen! Her enthusiasm was, indeed, contagious, for it left me yearning to turn the clock back and re-enter that age I left behind almost 2 decades ago.
