And what happens if the husband stumbles upon this weird and unreasonable activity? Or if it happens the other way round I’m sure the wives would not mind at all! Make all the housemaids to breastfeed their husbands, so at least some of their illicit affairs can be clogged.

Ive always wondered how in these “typical serials” one never grows old, never looks the age and wears sari’s fit for a kings wedding on a daily and nightly basis! And still we keep watching the show day after day or rather night after night. And what surprises me the most is the fact that its those Ekta's mindless serials which have a higher TRP than the other more sensible ones!
I loved the way the Mahi way team put a cap on the series. The story is like the central character is a 26 year old overweight (actually fat) girl working for a media publication. But she has a great sense of humor and a extraordinary attitude towards life and her expectations from life are also a bit far fetched! But who knew that the most eligible bachelor in the city, whom Mahi had been eying at for a long time would fall in love with her and want to get married to her! Even though she’s been wishing and dreaming of this improbable probability since we first saw her on the tube, when her dreams turn into reality, she runs away from the wedding mandap! and in all her typical Punjabi bridal gear she runs to Wimpy’s ya, the burger joint to eat!!!! Well and then she tells us that in the past 6 months, after having 3 boyfriend, almost being married she feels more confident! And I ask Why not! You had the best guy in town, ready to marry you and the people at work also at your feet, why not!
But its courage it takes to run away from what looked perfect in the beginning, turned out not too perfect when you had it. Our dreams at times can also be like mirages. They are our illusion or delusion that if such and such happens we will be happy. But we forget happiness is within us! And if we manage to find happiness or tranquility inside us nothing else matters!

There my favorite most favorite day of the week just came to an end! Yes, and I'm sure most of you like me also must be Sunday fans! Well who doesn't like lying around till noon not doing anything just being there and wishing all days could be like this only!
I said “most fav" coz all other holidays are also amongst my favorites too! But they are not as dependable as Sundays! The others come and they go, we cant be too sure you’ll have a holiday next year on the same day! It especially happens with Indian festivals. And the others don’t come every week, if I had it my way, I’d be having only Sunday’s on my week list! Oopppss… but then I think it would make the world very lazy place to live in! Well well, maybe some things are not meant to change at all, maybe they are best the way they are. Maybe if we had more Sundays we would wait for Mondays then.
Someone was once asking me the reason for having Monday blues! And I got into thinking, yes at times I even think!! (My thinking cap needs to be pulled out once in a while, aint it?) So, do we get Monday blues coz we’ve had a nice Sunday? Or do we get Sunday coz Monday blues are on its way? And then I was also wondering about my friends in the
Waiting for my next Sunday endeavor! Hopefully next week I’ll also have a movie Sunday! Those are my fav fav Sundays!
There was a time when even eve-teasing was the most that parents of young girls had to be prepared for. And today even rape cases are so common that parents just pray and thank God it is not their daughter.
I remember movies in which to rape an actress the villains would try and get the to a secluded area like the farms or the forest but these day heroes (Shiney Ahuja and those 4 policemen) need not even bother with it. They have their own dens in the form of houses, jails or even cars for a change. I wouldn’t be surprised if u were to come across you tubes of those b*******, please excuse my language, were caught exchanging which car would be more handy and comfortable to use for their unjustified usage.
But yes times have changed. Those days when a girl was eve-teased the boy was called a “gundda” or a “mawali” but today’s new, the so called educated men of today’s times who run institutions and colleges say its coz the girl was dressed in an instigating manner. I would like it ask these educationist was the lady who was in the jail wearing jeans, shorts or something that is in our “sanskruti” a sari or salwar I’m presuming in all my ignorant ways of thinking. But please do correct me “sir” if I'm mistaken. I would also like u to enlighten me and tell me what you think the outcome would be if we were to impose a dress code on the boys of your institution.
Is this a system failure or should I say a sister failure. If the women of our country are not safe on the roads, cars, homes, offices and now even in the jails where do we go?
I’ve personally always been of the opinion that females do not need any special reservations or privileges to become a stronger race. But now I think otherwise. I think we should not only get reservations and privileges but desperately need areas allotted which are strictly only for females. Arey why not? These will be places where we can roam around in peace in safety with security. Where there will be no men lurking in the dark or in broad daylight to pounce and get his hands on us, the supposedly stronger (emotionally) gender of our species.
We always come across SMSes articles and etc. implying how a wife dominate her husband or in some way or the other how the females control a man’s world. But how often do we actually come across such incidents in real life. We have turned a blind eye towards the reality of our society. It is such a common occurrence that now in our culture we take it to be a way of life. Small practices like getting married and the bride accepting the groom’s world as hers is something that has been followed by all of us just blindly. If we go deep down and see where it has stemmed from we will realize that it is never stated in our scriptures that girl goes to the boy’s house. Once married the bride n groom were supposed to built their own house and start their wing of the family.
When I see serials like “Balika Vadhu” and “Na Aana Is Desh Ladoo” I'm not surprised at all these are incidents which are sowen in all our lives in some ways or the other. It is just that they have particularly given it a defined background and culture. But these are problems of our modern day lives too. None of us can honestly say NO these issues are not common place. I would also like to applaud all these telecast the efforts they are putting up to educate and eradicate these instilled “prathas” or traditions in our minds.
Though ive mentioned only these 2 serials I'm sure there are many more in the rounds. I hope they can and they do bring around some change.
Otherwise finally we have the likes of Shabana Azmiji who are demanding reserved seats in the parliament today and tomorrow someone else will ask for area allocation within the country.
