Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Govt. of India plans for a ‘Long Drive’

Any idea how far is it gonna drive to?

Check out this rather vague and useless propaganda of an Austerity Drive:

How shameless can one get...

Austerity Drive

Update (Sept 28, 2012): And now the PMO has already taken a clear U-turn on the drive themselves… What a great example to set for the govt. and the country! Would you really like such a dual-faced govt. for the country?

Husbands Committing Suicide 4 times faster than Wives

The suicide statistics for the year 2010 have been published by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) – a unit of the Honorable Union Ministry for Home Affairs, Govt. of India. As usual, apart from painting a very grim picture about the society, the numbers tells a tale that better be called as tell-tale of the stress levels in the society, especially for husbands.

Husbands, who are more often than not, passed off as unsung heroes for all the sacrifices and contributions they make for their families, are on the worst side of the suicide scale.

Year over year, more and more husbands are committing suicides and despite efforts by men’s rights groups to create awareness about the same, the message seems to be falling on deaf ears as we are only seeing an upward trend in the suicides committed by husbands.

In the year 2010, 61453 husbands have committed suicide vis-à-vis 31754 wives. Similar numbers for 2009 were 58192 and 31300 respectively.

Male Dominated Society! Really?

Now that’s such a phrase that’s been ingrained in our minds since the very childhood… The boys are told that its a male dominated world, so they don’t have to worry, just dominate the world. Girls on the other hand are continuously taught, that since its a male dominated world out there, so they need to dominate ‘their’ male partners at home and around. Sounds familiar?

Well, amongst all these ‘teachings’, has anyone stopped for a while to look around and ask a simple question… Is it really true? Is it really a male dominated society? Do we call it ‘male dominated’ just because the number of men working outside the house is more than the number of women?

To answer this question, I’ll try to start by digging some past, then look at the present and try to project some future too!

Happy Independence Day to single people

On Valentine’s Day I received a really funny SMS. It said, “To all the lovey-dovey couples out there-happy valentine’s day- and to all the singles- happy Independence Day!!! “

I know we have a good laugh about it because it strikes a chord with most, but while I do understand that it’s a responsibility to be in a relationship or to be married, and that there is an interdependence created by the bond, the seeming absence of independence in most relationships, is to me, disturbing.

Why is it that it’s essential to become a ‘couple’ but not equally important to retain ‘individuality’ or the ability to tread your own path, be it career, hobbies or lifestyle?

I was most impressed while watching Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Films reflect the change in society and send strong messages about changing scenarios in the society. Abhay Deol’s character does not want to get married to his fiancee, because despite being a successful, career woman she wants to chuck everything for marriage. He wants a woman who is independent, successful and has her own life too. How refreshing! Many couples feel traditional role playing, or having ‘identicalness’ is the recipe for success. It’s not. It’s perfectly fine to like polar genres of cinema, music, or play different sports. It’s not essential to have ‘sameness’ to be a perfect couple. Of course it’s nice to be aware of your partners’ whereabouts or inform them if either will be late etc, but a 24/7 watchdog approach is suffocating. A lack of independence is directly related to control. Couples should depend on each other for love, respect and encouragement to discover their full potential while retaining a definite sense of individuality and independence. Happy Independence Day to all!
