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??

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

The Pakistani Bride - Book Review.

I had been on quite a long reading hiatus, which, fortunately, ended last week. I bought not one, but three books of varied genres to begin afresh. I wrote about Love stories, an anthology edited by Ruskin Bond, and,  I let you go', by Clare Mackintosh. In today's post, I review the third book, 'The Pakistani Bride', by the internationally acclaimed  author, Bapsi Sidhwa.

   Her books have been translated and published in several languages and she has received many an honour for her literary works. As humbled as I feel reviewing her book, I hope I am able to do justice to her work. So, help me God.


The Pakistani Bride  is the story of Zaitoon, a little girl orphaned during the exodus that was the Partition of India and Pakistan. The bloodbath that led to a complete annihilation of the fabric of our country left countless families shattered and destructed.

 The following two lines  paint an accurate picture of  the aftermath of the Partition, of people's struggl…

The Wise Man Said - Book Review.

Book: The Wise Man Said.

Author: Priya Kumar.

Genre: Motivational.



The story in a nutshell: Sammy, an 80 year old billionaire, realises that the secret behind his success in life has been the various sacrifices he made along the way. One of the foremost being his neglect towards his family that rendered him a lonely soul bereft of a single person cheering him for his win in the race called 'life'. This realisation spurs him to leave behind his identity and money and participate in the life he missed out on. Eleven months in a year, he takes on a new identity and sets out to experience anything - even death - to participate in adventures across the world. All he carries with him are his curiosity and his willingness to experience anything that life may present him with.

The Wise Man Said is a collection of twelve stories from Sammy's adventures that he penned down in his diary; experiences from his exciting journey that left him feeling enriched and contented at a life well liv…
