It’s time to change our mindset

The new airtel advertisement has created a situation of debate. A woman,the boss of her husband still cooking at home.Some people appreciate this ad and says”I like these kind of women managing the house and work both”. But please ask to this superwoman, is she happy with her life or not. One question to the creative team of this ad ‘Can’t she hire a cook’ or her husband says “I want my wife to cook food for me” like a typical Indian husband mentality.
A few days ago, I heard this from a management student girl,”Our mother lives are much easier than us as they don’t have any career”.I agree with her in old days women are not allowed to study much as a result ,they don’t have any career,so they have to manage household only.But in current scenarios, we study harder,then get a good job, high pay scale and after that we manage household and work both. If in any case we have to manage household then i have to say that older women are luckier than us,at least they don’t have to bear office frustration. If this is called women liberation what else can I say?

It doesn’t mean that girl should not be educated or don’t have careers. In this century, it’s become mandatory for everyone (especially women) to come out from their shell. Not necessary for earning but to realize that there is some world exist outside kitchen also. If we are talking about progress of the nation then participation of women is also needed.

We have to change the mentality of society.Still in our society it is believed that a girl should know cooking while it is not important for a
boy. In my opinion, everyone should know cooking so it will become easier to balance the things.Since childhood, i used to heard a line in my home “Ladkiyan chahe
collector ban jaaye par khana to banana hi padta hai” and honestly it has always tortured me the most. Does it mean girls are born to cook food only? It’s only her Responsibility to manage a house? She doesn’t have any life? She is not allowed to fulfill her dreams?
Housewives didn’t get any pay for running a household and her demand for extra money needs an explanation. If she starts working then who will manage the house that’s the question arises. On the other hand working women have to manage both work and home, if something is not going well and then the husband says “We are financial stable then why you are taking so much stress, quit the job”. At last, if you want a peaceful married life then you have to quit the job. If you are not financially stable then I can only pray. At certain times of life, being a woman we have to make a choice of career or home.
At the conclusion of this article, I want to say one thing if we are speaking about equality please start it with the home. Nobody loves to sacrifice the dreams, if it is painful for you, then it is painful for her also. If it becomes necessary for a wife to quit job for the family, then don’t underestimate her sacrifice.


Be the hammer,not the nail

From the core of my heart I admire people who get success with their own efforts, apparently if they rises by doing right works. There are few people who inspire me to write this article, one of them is Smriti Irani. I am not very fond of politics, so not much aware of her political skills.But after watching her interview on “Aapki Adalat” and speech on women’s day, I came to know about her life history. From a waitress to the Minister of Human Resource Development ,the path would not be easy for her.

There are lots of other names are there in the list like our PM. I was trying to find out similarities among them and get some like their ability to think out of the box, self confidence, love for their work, never give up attitude and last but not the least taking risk ability. I think risk taking ability is the most important thing as until we do not come out of our comfort zone, can’t try new things and explore the new person inside us success is not possible.

Next is love or it’s better to say passion for the work, if we can’t enjoy the things that we are doing it will never work out. Like if any singer does not find a song interesting he will never feel it as a result listener will not able to connect with him and in spite of the perfect knowledge of music, person will never succeed to achieve the goals.If we love our work, then end results do not make any difference as enjoyment of doing it is giving us satisfaction and this is the key for success. We never get tired or feel bored of doing the things we like.

At the end, we can say it is not all about hard work, sometimes it’s all about choices and grabbing opportunities as well. You all have heard that famous quote “Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.” The better we know ourself(our passion) the chances of getting success increases.

English Vinglish


 In a recent turn of events, I traded an over-cluttered life in Bombay for a school on a hill to teach English to grade seven and eight students. I was as untrained as they come, but I knew one thing. I had always been thrilled about words coming alive on paper. I figured teaching would involve spreading a bit of that disease.

On day one, in an attempt to “know my audience”, I asked the students to share their favourite word and say why they liked it. They quickly came up with words like music, joy, peace, love, happy and others. My heart sank. It felt frugal. This is not going to be fun, I thought. Was this what they meant by the economy of language, I wondered.

Then I told them I was making word soup and needed something chunkier – words with more gravitas, more texture…

Mahabharat In Today’s Life

I have chosen a bit different topic this time,got the inspiration from TV series airing on star plus.Personally, I was never interested in this epic as I found it very confusing. But after understanding it through this TV series, I observed some interesting incidents with great teachings in this epic.

People found its character more realistic in comparison to other epic, the grounds may be every character belongs to it have some negative points unlike Ramayan. My favourite scene (in TV series) is when Krishna tries to console Draupadi after her humiliation in a dice game. Krishna preaches her to forgive Duryodhana and others in order to get the mental peace. He advises her to punish them, but not in order to take revenge only set an example. Mostly people misunderstood the Kurushetra war happen because Pandavas wants to take the revenge, but this is not true.

The reason of war is the silence of the great people when misdeed is happening in front of them, we can easily connect this to the present day people with great knowledge and power opt to remain silent when something wrong is going in front of them. Today, rapist didn’t get the death penalty, but in this epic Dushasan is brutally killed by Bhima as he misbehaved with the woman. At the time of Dushasan’s death Bhima said to him, “By killing you in this way,I am setting an example for the person who misbehave with the woman”.

Some people say that if Krishna was a deity,then why he tricked the Kaurvas and not opted right way to punish them. This argument is similar like if we say traffic cop is breaking rules by speeding while at the same trying to do his job by catching hold of another speeder. You see there are certain occupations liberties that come with being a traffic cop. He has to do his job by violating the rules, there is no way around it. So is the case with Krishna.

It is said that in today’s life also people will get the solution of their problem in Bhagvad Geeta (conversation between Arjun and Lord Krishna before the war).But some small incidences of this epic also teach us a lot.bhagavad-gita_TEA9P_1359374115

10 Practical Writing Tips

Lynette Noni


I’m alive! Sorry for the long wait since my last post—I’ve been without my laptop for over a week (major withdrawals!). I was away interstate for the Hillsong Conference (which was amazing) and only just got home. It was an incredible week and sooo much super-cool stuff happened (I even saw a pod of whales migrating north during my flight home!) and I’m still processing a lot of it. But while I was at the conference I went to a master class called Creative Writing: For The Love Of Words which was über-awesome, and I wanted to write a quick post with some of the things I learnt in it. I mean, I learnt way more than what I’m about to write, but I’ve had an average of five hours sleep every night for the last week (at best) and want to keep this short and sweet to lessen the amount…

If its not forever its not love..

Recently I have read a book titled “If its not forever its not love” . I found the title very interesting main reason to pick this book .The story revolves around 6 characters Deb, Avantika, Shrey, Tiya, RD and Rangini.
Two love stories are going simultaneously, one in flash back written in the diary and other in the present day. Both stories are written in different styles it can be easily recognized that the two writers are involved.I found diary one more interesting as it reflects the eternal love without expectations. Avantika is a very strong character, although somewhere writer repeats her positive points again and again.

I want to jump to the last chapter to know the ending of the dairy story, but when I reached there found ending a bit filmy. All in all it is a good book to read one time.


Yesterday, my brother told me about a contest related to entrepreneurship. If an idea is selected then the person
will get the amount of 1 million to start his own business and guidance from one of the leading entrepreneur.Two days ago, I came to know that our new PM Mr. Narendra Modi has created a new ministry for skill development and entrepreneurship. These things encourage frustrated employees like me who never wants to be slaves of the corporate world. So I have gone to the google and search for the “Top ten craziest business ideas” and found a list.

The ideas are really different and crazy, it includes Farmville also making money from virtual gold.But most innovative idea according to me come out from frustration and depression of a breakup “I Do,Now I Don’t”.A Mr. Josh Opperman’s fiancee left him after a three month engagement. All she left him was the engagement ring, when he took the ring back to jewelers to return it. They offer him $3,500 for the ring he paid $10,000.So he started, website named “I do, now i don’t”. On this website people can sell their engagement rings or any other fancy jewellery to other users.This site has been a great success and featured on CNN. Success idea coming out in a mind of the common man from a tragedy, now that’s encouraging.

At the end, the moral of the story is somewhere all of us have innovative business ideas and we can become entrepreneur But we are scared of the result and thus don’t want that idea to come out.
