Don’t make cuss words look like forbidden fruit

There’s a good reason why they say that it isn’t just the parents who give birth to a child but also a child who gives birth to parents. Almost overnight the responsibility of a life is thrust upon two unsuspecting individuals who are wary of every little decision they make. The refrigerator gets a makeover as the house is baby proofed; in short life as they have known it, is gone for good. Among other things, we start minding our

INDIAN KIDS MUST BE ASEXUAL?

The heading of my article sounds strange right?  But it’s true..according to Indian parents and elders, our young ones and the youth, should remain strictly asexual until they get married. Not just in their body but in their minds too!  Sounds unbelievable, right? We Indians have a big issue with the word sex and talking about it with kids is a big no-no for the parents.  “Kids bigad jaenge”…that’s what they say.  A kid who is going through puberty has

Dr. Naavnidhi Wadhwa

APJ Abdul Kalam once said, “Failure will never overtake me if my definition to succeed is strong enough.” A beautiful quote by our former president, it talks about the ability of a person’s mind to overcome obstacles in the toughest of times.

Mommy Blogger Brigade- Influencing One Opinion At A Time

When I started writing, almost two years ago, people would be curious, some were appreciative too. But the moment I would mention the word ‘blogging’, I was met with many a skeptically raised eyebrow. “Ah… so you are a mom blogger?” I would also smell a hint of derision in the tone, sometimes bordering on insult.

No more checking the phone in between waking up my daughter and running behind her with a glass of milk in one hand and the phone in the other. No more checking WhatsApp 100 times for messages during the day even though the notification is on. As if that all important message “Your account

SOCIAL MEDIA IS HERE TO STAY

30.06.2019 is World Social Media Day and I think it’s quite befitting that I talk about it today. I’ve lived a nomad’s life for the better part of my existence on this planet. Just when I would ease into familiarity, it would be time to move again. So much so, that after 3-4 years of staying in one place, I would start getting a niggling feeling and soon enough, it would be time to pack our bags. It was downright

BEING A GOOD GIRL

Indian society and its rules are strange!  Picture this: “A good girl doesn’t drink, smoke or party.” “A good girl doesn’t go out late in the night.” “A good girl never answers back or puts forth her point in front of the elders.” “A good girl dresses up decently.” “A good girl obeys her parents and in-laws (even if she is unhappy herself)”. “A good girl always prioritizes others over herself.” “A good girl shouldn’t talk or laugh loudly.” “A
