YES or NO to Pre-Marital Sex

YES or NO to Pre-Marital Sex


Pre-marital sex is sexual activity practiced by persons who are unmarried. Since world is becoming more liberal in its ways, the thing once considered taboo and sin in numerous cultures and societies have became the part of it. The increase exposure to sex and sexual material on Internet is also a reason for its increase among teenagers.The youth adapting to the changing socio -economic factors considers it as a necessity to uplift their status in their group. Those who abstain from it are labelled as hypocrites who don't belong to this modern world. 

I am against pre-medical sex not because I believe it to be against our culture or society or tradition neither because I consider it a western trend ruining our rich heritage but because some of its negative aspects. 
  •  Teenagers tries sex out of curiosity without knowing safe sex practices which leads to increase in teenage pregnancies and increases the risk of contacting sexually transmitted infections.
  • Termination of pregnancies in some cases affect the possibility of being pregnant again in future thus having adverse affect later in life when one plans for a family.
  • A study reveals that individuals who had more sexual partners before marriage compared with those who had less likely to have a high quality marriages perhaps for the reason of sexual satisfaction. An individual tends to find sexual pleasure in many and not one in this kind of cases leading to failed marriages.
  • 63% male Indian youth wants to marry a virgin girl according to a Hindustan Times Youth survey 2014 while whatever be the status of their own virginity. Such youths sometimes perform virginity test on girls whom they want to marry which is derogatory for the other sex.
  • Pre-marital sex and casual relationships have been de-stigmatized in the youths' minds but they are afraid of being found out which if happens leads to mental depression and public shame.
  • Few narrow minded males see sex as an opportunity to show off among friends. They falls to the extend that they record their sexual act to show to their friends, such MMS's sometimes leaked by some friend or sick minded people to earn money. This resulted in public humiliation of couples involved some of which commits suicide in fear of facing society.
  • I also think that it is making people more practical than emotional about relationships and the value of love somewhat left behind when you become practical.
I am believer of true love which is beyond any worldly pleasures which teaches you to love others only for love. I say NO to pre-marital sex doesn't mean that I am against those who are comfortable with this. Neither I am judgemental of their character nor I am questioning their purity. Sex is a natural phenomenon and existed long before the concept of marriage was developed by the so called civilized society. Moreover it is not bad or taboo or sinful if you are doing something you are comfortable with and also which is not hurtful to the others. I am in the opinion that you should first examine its repercussions in your life before involving in it and must be aware of it's effect on yourself.

  1. Talk about changing times. I agree to your point on the need to weigh on priorities and options. Alternately, it can be viewed as a personal choice.

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.

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
