From the Expert

My parents mean the world to me, and while I have been married for fifteen years, and have seen my parents transform from spirited adults who were always there for my brother and me, always encouraging us to explore and learn more, even agreeing to send us far away from home to becoming more emotional about us not spending enough time with them as we chase our dreams and make the best of our 40’s.

Dear Mom, Why Did You Stop Loving Me? – A Married Son!
Mother and Son

Enough about the sacrificing daughters and daughter-in-laws, why not the unsung heroes of family, the Sons? Yes, that very “mere chaand ka tukda” “apple of my eye” “maa ka ladla” son, who is spoilt silly by most mothers in the Indian continent (not that we daughters are not spoilt silly by our fathers, but very few understand that after marriage!) We have already heard stories and read letters from the Daughter-in-laws about how things have changed for them after marriage, what about the sons? Life isn’t easy for them either and to make things worse, they don’t even have a mom’s shoulder to cry on like we do. This letter is an ode to them!

I Never Believed In Friendship, But A Tragedy Changed My Life!
Friendship Day 2016

Police was already on the station and things got taken care. I was still not stable, the girl who saved me was no one but a colleague from my office. I recalled she was the one who shared smile every time I made an eye contact with her, but I walked away showing zero gestures. As she kept her hand on my shoulder, “Are you okay?” I hugged her tightly and cried like a horror struck baby. She hugged me back and consoled me, asked me to be calm as everything was in control. After two days I reached office at time and there she was with a morning smile, I smiled back! I felt good, refreshing and my day went well than it did earlier.

Parenting – Are You Spending Quality Time With Your Kids?
family time
From the Expert

Five year old Rohit walked around his classroom, aimlessly intimidating his younger friends, kicking them randomly for no reason and playfully smacking their backs. When confronted by his teacher, Rohit said “ I thought that’s O.K. as my dad always smacks me when we are together.” Here you have the case of an innocent five year old who has socially learned that it is ‘harmless’ to physically abuse others. The time spent with his dad left a detrimental impact which is very challenging to ‘unlearn’. It is a well established fact that how parents spend time with their children has an unfathomable impact on their holistic development.

I Found True Love In An Arranged Marriage!

Mother’s unconditional love and dedication won my father’s heart and today she is getting it all back in kind. What I have learnt from them? Love requires no mansions, luxurious materialism but it seeks for trust, respect, patience and standing together parallel, no matter what are the situations. When I denied an arrange marriage this is what mother said, “I Found True Love In An Arranged Marriage.” And thus I found this story!

The Single Girl!!
single girl

Every time anyone asks me this question I have no idea how to answer. So, I have a variety of reactions – from just a glaring stare to a “I don’t know” shrug to resting bitch face – which totally depends on who is asking me. If a cute guy asks this, I make some flirty comments. 😉
Technically, I have been a single for the last 5 years; it means that the last time I was in a committed relationship was a decade ago. In the last 5 years, I have had a couple of flings, one “what is this” kind of relationship (we both knew we liked each other but it never materialized into anything concrete) and even met two guys my parents had introduced to me as prospective-husband candidates.

Widow At A Young Age – Mukta Sorathiya And Her Depressive Days!
widow

Born and brought up in the cultural city of Vadodara, it was like a dream to get married to the love of my life, despite the little struggles. My husband was a party animal and he loved taking me along to all his booze parties. As a loving and caring wife, I would tell him to drink less and each time his friends would come and drop him till our bed room. I would constantly make him understand about his responsibilities, his health and that he was now father to our young daughter. But sadly, he just turn a deaf ear to all my concerns.

One day something unusual happened. It gave me chills.

On the 15th January Uttrayan 2016 evening 9.30 p.m, I received a call from one of his friends. He was Dead.

How To Make Your Partner Fall In Love With You Again?

Every single person in the world wants to feel loved. Once you get that feeling, you want it. As the feeling disappears, you want to do anything that you can in order to feel it again. When you are in love with someone that loved you in the past and that does not love you now, everything is frustrating.

We need to understand that love has so many facets like physical attraction, emotional attraction, commitment, affection and compatibility. Falling out of love is normally connected to losing affection, compatibility and commitment. These normally do not disappear completely. There are just differences that appeared.

7 Reasons Why The New Generation Is Avoiding Marriage!
marriage

Marriage… A notion that has constantly evolved with the passing time and generations! When I say evolved, I mean the meaning of marriage and its rules! With the changing time, marriage has evolved from the sati system to the current generation same sex marriages! But what remains unchanged is the sanctity of marriage. However, the new generation which loves its freedom and inspires to reach the top of the world, doesn’t consider marriage an important part of their life anymore. With the increasing number of divorces, separations and cheating partners, it all seems as if the new generation has no more faith in the institution of marriage.

Isn’t it so profound, especially for women? We are always on the lookout for what we have not been able to achieve – not losing that extra kilo of weight, failing to attend the PTA meeting, not being a great cook, not doing enough. What if we truly thank ourselves for doing all that amazing work that we do every day?

Runaway Women - 3

Love… Love isn’t easy, it is even arduous in India. It is not always the Happy Ever after… it is Complicated.

What your parents think, what and whom they choose, is way more important while considering marriage than whom you love, in most cases, especially arranged ones. And these reasons lead many young boys/girls to run away from their parents and family, only to win their Love.
