I pray for your well-being

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers
Strange even when we are angry with people we love, we wish all is well at their end...

O my heart, please don't be sad
I know you are hurt, times are bad
Just don't lose hope, hang on with me
Together we can change our destiny

"Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike, each has their sufferings." - Buddha

For years I have lived envying the happiness of others. For years I have lamented over my fate. For years I have complained life is unfair to me. For years I have blamed others for all the bad things happening all around.  For years I have wanted a chance when I can prove I am superior. And one fine day I woke up to realize I have finally proved. Now the game was reversed - now others lamented while I rejoiced. I relished having it all.

Pampering my little monster

Having a baby is more than a herculean task. No, I am not talking about all the going-through-labor-stuff. That is there too. But the real life starts after the birth of the little monster. Yeah, you read it right I am calling it a little monster,

It's all in my heart

I am a woman. I belong to middle-class family. I am a citizen of a developing country riddled with social as well as economic issues.

Needless to say, I live a life full of constraints. I grew up with a cobweb of rules around me. But heart is blind to worldly affairs.

Surprise Proposal

I am a little old fashioned when it comes to romance - a Jane Austen fan, feminine to the core. Hence, I have never proposed any guy or flirted with someone. For me it should always be the other way round. A prince charming should always sway away the lady of his dreams off her feet.

Few months back I was surprised to find a familiar but unexpected face sending me friend's request on my Facebook account. I should confess that more than surprised I was actually pleased to find the presence of my cook on the famous social networking site. He is a hard working guy from different part of the country migrated to Bangalore for regular income. We often advise him to take proper rest as he works in too many houses. But he needs money to send home! Where was the scope of anything else until the advent of cheaper and affordable smart phones? He asked us to order one for him online. And few days later after he got his new gadget he was on Facebook.

In a densely populated country like India where Per Capita Income is calculated around Rs 7,378/Month, owning a laptop is a luxury that only few percentage can afford. On top of that operating a laptop requires a basic understanding of computers and most importantly a relaxed life. With elementary education taking backseat in below poverty line's life, the former is impossible. And the relaxed life factor - well, you gotta be kidding! In our country we work like donkeys to make the ends meet.

So, I would say the invention of cheap smart mobiles is nothing short than a miracle to us. But we have more than the general reasons to celebrate Mobile social networking. Though in recent years, it has helped Indians to express themselves more candidly, handle their social as well as personal issues more maturely, given them voices to fight against issues, given them international exposure that has  broadened their mindset and perspectives, and above all given everybody an alternate source of entertainment. Still, there is another far greater effect of mobile social networking.

You see we used to make everyone around us uneasy with our poking gaze and brazen manners. We

have this birth right of trespassing into the personal life of others. I used to get irritated when while waiting for a train at station, or my turn at a bank or traveling in metro, people waiting idly would just scan me from top to bottom and stare at me unabashedly. Only few would engage in static activities like reading or listening music using headphones. The national past-time was gawking. Men would stare for obvious reasons but even women were not left behind. Staring and making a mental note and comments about others lifestyle, would make anyone uncomfortable. I am sure all of us have been in such situation and unknowingly all of us have been doing the exact same thing. Sprouting from this seed of boredom was our impatient attitude that would drive us in breaking queues, getting into ugly scenes for space in a packed bus or trains and letting our creative streaks erupt as ugly graffiti at improper places.

But recently these things have begun to change. No more people are sitting idle and gaping at each

other. With minds happily engaged in browsing through tweets, checking that little red icon in FB profile, or whatsapp an interesting PJ to old college friends, we have become tolerant while on move. We are no longer concerned if the lady sitting beside is wearing a saree or jeans, or if the swarm  outside passport office is swelling or if we are hanging on that pole in the overcrowded bus for more than an hour. We are no longer a nation of bored housewives who would sit before television cutting veggies or tired husbands whose world only revolves around work or family. We are no longer a nation of retired old men who sit idly counting hours in a day or MILs whose only goal is to exercise control on their DILs. Our ladies and men are now socialites, multi-talented, strong opinionated and confident lot. Because we are lot more connected anytime, anywhere. We take absolutely no worries and it looks like finally we are arriving to become a nation of cool people. 

After all, forwarding the forwarded message is the forward thing to do in these forward times.

P.S.: जल्दी फॉरवर्ड करो, मार्केट में नया आया है :D

Disagreements are part of life and anyone can end up in the middle of a heated conflict no matter how polite or political or understanding one is.

Wonders of Quikr NXT

Disclaimer: This post is written for Indiblogger

I was in the middle of this important meeting when I got a call from this private number. Being a family person esp. a mother of 2 year old all kinds of thoughts crossed my minds in just milliseconds and I picked the call disrupting the meeting, just to attend an unknown guy telemarketing about the new Spa opened in some remote part of the city. Anyone can guess the level of frustration I went through and the only thing that I wanted to say was, "How the hell did you get my number?".

My First Bloggers' Meet

I started my blog in 2006 when I got to know about the blogging platform and that I can be more public about my views and writings. Not a regular blogger until 2012, I was on and off blogging given my hectic real life.
