Gandhi’s India: 10 Facts That Prove We Have Changed For Better!
From the Expert

As an educator, for me the tangibles that herald change will always remain qualitative and perhaps not always defined as concrete models. My mantra in life has been – the process is more important than the outcome and the India that Gandhiji left behind is going to make him proud in many ways. A country so vast as ours, a country so rich in its heritage embracing the ways of a global world will need time and patience and the freedom we have and celebrate today as one of the leading democracies of the world is staggering. We have to be grateful as Indians.

Anger: An Enemy Or A Friend?
Young woman
From the Expert

Anger isn’t bad, none of our emotions are good or bad, they just are human. You can’t tell someone not to be sad or angry just as you can’t tell them not to be happy when they are. Emotions drive us to action, as you saw in the analogy of the iceberg, and sometimes, anger is what can motivate us to make a change. Many things can trigger us to feel angry, but the next time you experience the hot blood starting to rise to your cheeks and your hands clench up into a fist and your breathing becomes fast, pause and do a self check if you want to allow a disproportionate and most likely harmful reaction to escape you rather than thoughtfully choosing a response that will help solve the situation rather than make it even more upsetting.

Indian Couples Choosing Nude Wedding Photo shoots: A Bold Choice?

In a society like India, where people finds it horribly wrong to hug and kiss in the public is now going to the trend which is uncomfortable for professionals. Gurgaon based Priyanka Sachar, a couple photo shoot professional received a request from a Groom-to-be in Lucknow, reported by Times of India. Priyanka says, “He wanted an intimate photo shoot – a couple shoot – with nude poses on his wedding night. I had to turn down the request, because I was not comfortable doing something like that,” adding more to this, the lady photographer said “It’s not as though nude photography does not happen. In fact, boudoir photography is fairly common, where a woman may want to capture the best of herself. And it is done very tastefully. But clicking a couple on their wedding night – I’m not sure if the couple is actually being kinky or just wants pictures for themselves?”

Indian Supreme Court, A Male Biased Judiciary System?

Also, where is the equality? Shouldn’t the judgement be the same for a woman, who leaves her parents to live with the man forever, can she seek a divorce? Why Indian laws always oscillate between lawful and lawless, will remain answered!! From the Judgement that the Supreme court passed it appears that sons are still preferred over daughters! Why is a daughter living with her parents is not so touched or even given a thought upon and here a freedom to seek a divorce is granted for sons? I would say again, I am annoyed by this sexist judgement of the court!! I don’t deny the fact that there are women who simply do not let her husband take care of his parents but there can be other solutions to this!! Is Divorce is an option, really?? Now any man who has least interest in his wife will offer an alibi and frame her into a fowl case!! What if a mother tried to conspire that her bahu does not want to live with them? It’s easy for them!
