Be The Change

Be The Change

"Be the change you want to see" - Mahatma Gandhi

Today we all raise our voices for crime against women. As soon as a rape news flashed on news televisions people are out on streets to protest against the police and government,demands harsher punishments for the rapist and so on. It all ends in few days and life goes on like this.

The problem lies not in minds of few individuals but in thoughts and behaviour of the whole society and as the charity begins at home so is the brutality. Right in our homes position of girl child is miserable,a sister must care for her brother's needs while a brother is free to treat her as his servant,it's a daughter's duty to ask for water to father when he returns home while son plays video games. Still marriages are arranged without daughter's consent,parents think it as below there dignity to run there homes with girl's salary. These thoughts which are prevalent in society project women as soft and venerable characters to be victimised in each and every step of life.

A girl herself started thinking that she is weak and must need someone to protect her,to feed her,to take care of her and when she is married with such mind set she suffers each treatment given to her as her destiny,she further inculcates this ideology in her children where a boy started thinking himself as boss and a girl as a slave. Such women are also prone to physical violence as they don't even realize that what is happening to them is wrong,neighbors, passerby don't intervene not because they think it's a personal matter but because they too are occupied by this ideology related to status of women. Initiatives like BELBAJAO  thus becomes useless in our patriarchal society.

We must become the change we want to see,there is a need to bring a change in thoughts of girls and women. A man must encourage the women to fight for her rights. There should be a Krantiveer like Nana Patekar who encourage a woman in movie so much that she herself hit those who try to do injustice to her.It may sounds filmy but women must feel the power in herself and the effect it can create in society and on those who think her as a toy. A real man is not one who project himself as powerful but one who support and encourage women to be powerful.

Bangles should be a sign of power and not of cowardliness. When boys will treat there sisters well,respect there mothers equally than they will be the man who respect a woman as a equal human being as himself and not as an object to be treated in any way he likes.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
