My New Year Resolution That Never Changes

Ever since I understood the meaning of New Year resolution, I wished just one thing "I want to keep myself Happy". And for this coming year also I'm taking the same purpose for myself. I’ll try to do everything that it takes to make myself happy. People make different resolutions with every new year. I would admit, I did that also. I made new resolutions for me and tried to complete them. But soon I realized that everything in this world is related to happiness one or the other way. Happiness is so important to us, both as individuals and as a world, primarily because happiness is really everything.

We tend to forget how important happiness is and get consumed with our own negative feelings of doom and gloom from time to time. We sometimes don’t consciously realize that we are doing this to ourselves. As human beings, although we are highly "thought" oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately ENTIRELY determined by our emotions. How we feel, how we think…

लहसुन तुम सब्ज़ी हो कि मसाला..?

क्या जमाना आ गया है.अभी कुछ दिनों पहले पता चला कि लहसुन पर मुकदमा ठोक दिया गया है. जरा सोच कर देखिये ये सुंदर सा लहसुन क्या गुनाह कर गया कि उस पर मुकदमा चला दिया.

जज साहब, लहसुन से "लहसुन कठघरे में आओ."

लहसुन "जी माई-बाप.पर हम किये  क्या है?"

जज साहब " ये तो सही से मुझे भी नहीं पता अभी पर कुछ लोगो को तुमसे परेशानी है."

लहसुन "अच्छा.पर हम तो कुछ किये ही नहीं.सदियों से ऐसे ही है. कुछ भी बदले नहीं है रंग ढंग में. "

जज साहब "वो तो ठीक है पर अब मुकदमा तो चलेगा ही.फिर देखते है तुमने क्या किया है."

हुआ यूं कि एक विवाद को लेकर जोधपुर के आलू-प्याज़ और लहसुन विक्रेता संघ ने राजस्थान हाइकोर्ट में एक जनहित याचिका दायर की है. याचिका में उहोंने पूछा है कि आखिर लहसुन को अनाज मंडी में क्यों बेचें? दरअसल, राजस्थान सरकार के 2016 के नए कानून के मुताबिक लहसुन को अनाज मंडी में बेचा जाना चाहिए. लेकिन 2016 से पहले तक इसे सब्ज़ी मंडी में बेचा जाता था. सब्ज़ी मंडी में बेचने पर बिचौलिए छह प्रतिशत कमीशन देते हैं लेकिन अनाज मंडी में बिचौलिए केवल दो फीसदी कमीशन द…

On your second marriage with cell phone

I see a problem with today’s husbands that they are cell phone addicted. And this disease is spreading like anything. In last 15 years, the cell phone has conquered our world. And quest of smartphones has made them more powerful. I could make a list of 50 ways these phones have improved our lives. But if you’re like me and can remember what life was like before we all got cell phones, you may wonder if all the changes are really for the good. Remember the days when we were not having phones. We used to enjoy outings, visits to relatives, movies without having thoughts of updating selfies and photos. We used to be serious in work without being distracted by ringing phones or by the white glow of someone texting next to us.

Adjusting to new technologies is not new for people. Electricity, TV, phones, computers, and many other new inventions have brought significant changes in our lives and in the way we related to our spouses, our children, and our friends.  But the pace these new techn…

शादी करवा दो इसकी, अपने आप सुधर जाएगा..

शादियाँ हमारे समाज का एक हिस्सा हैं और साल दर साल लड़के लड़कियाँ शादी के बंधन में बंधते ही रहते हैं.
शादियों से जुड़ी एक अजीब सी आदत या यूं कहूँ परंपरा मुझे बड़ा अचरज में डाल देती हैं. जो लड़का आवारा, नाकारा या नालायक हो उसकी शादी करवा दो. लड़के के घरवालों को ये लगता हैं कि शादी के बाद लड़का सुधर जाएगा. मुझे आज तक समझ नहीं आता कि ऐसा कैसे होता होगा? जो लड़का खुद से अपने जीवन के बारे में सोच ना सके वो किसी दूसरे घर से आई लड़की के बारे में कैसे सोच पाएगा..? पर चल रहा हैं ये सिस्टम जमानो से..

कल धर्मेंद्र जी का जन्मदिन था. मैंने उनके ऊपर लिखे एक लेख में पढ़ा कि धर्मेंद्र जी के पिता जी ने उनकी शादी फिल्मों का भूत उनके सर से उतारने के लिए कर दी थी. ये कब से चला आ रहा है कि लड़के को सुधारने के लिए उसकी शादी कर दो..? मुझे नहीं लगता कोई सुधरता है क्योंकि धर्मेंद्र जी ने खुद कबूला कि वो सुधरे नहीं शादी के बाद भी.. वो कहते हैं  " एक बार मुझे भी लगा कि अब स्थिर होना चाहिए. घर-गृहस्थी है, जिम्मेदारियां हैं. जुआ खेल पाने का वक्त गया. बहुतेरी कोशिश की कि कहीं जम जाऊं. पर तभी ‘फिल्मफेयर-यूनाइटेड प्रोड्यूस…

7 Internet Safety Tips for Kids

Our new generation is learning things with the speed of bullet train. Isn't it? My son is only 3 but he knows how to turn WIFI on in my phone. When for the first time I realized that he is able to play his favourite rhymes on YouTube, the next thing I fear was some unwanted content that may accidentally come up while using the internet. And then this happened as well. Once he was playing an app which I had downloaded, some advertisement flashes in between and as expected he clicked on the advertisement. That advertisement took him to an unwanted website. My eye went popping when I saw this happening right in front me. And that day I decided to take necessary steps to keep my son safe from such cyber issues.

Today's kids are very much capable of using laptops, tablets and mobile phones for different purposes. If the usage of internet wisely and carefully happens, it can open the doors of enormous knowledge and intelligence. Even kids under 10 now know that internet can give an…

I will miss you Channel V - Channel V to shut down soon

If you belong to my generation of the 90s, let me give you a new. Star India's music channel V is dowing shutters this week and it will be replaced by some sports channel. I am soured to hear this because channel V was my childhood favourite music channel. And finally, it is getting closed. My childhood belongs to the time when a phenomenon called Indipop was rising in India. Young India was beginning to discover music celebrities who came with their western counterparts and the touch of rap along with fusion. Remember Baba Sehgal and Alisha Chinai. Leading to this phenomenon, two Indian channels came into the picture in the late 1990s. One was MTV India. The other was channel V. My favourite was Channel V between these two as it had more Desi touch.

Channel V shut stop this week as in the era of smartphone and internet, what purpose 24 x7 music uncreative channels serve? While MTV figured out the changing behaviour of audiences early on in 2000s and rebranded itself as a youth c…

Do you admire the new Facebook messenger for kids?

Yesterday, the social media giant launched the first of its kind messenger app for kids under 13 years by naming it as Messenger Kids. The new app it is expected to become a new galaxy in the universe of social media. Facebook said there will be plenty of safeguards built into Messenger Kids. Parents will have to sign their kids up for the service and have to approve any person their children communicate with. This means Messenger Kids will be downloaded onto a child’s device but will be controlled by the parent. The child will not have his or her own Facebook account.But how reasonable it is to allow kids on messenger app is something everyone has a different tone upon.

On one hand, there is already enough hoax upon kids spending time on gadgets and lacking interest in physical activities causing serious issues to their physical and mental health while on the other hand, we have a new feed to engage the children to smartphones. I would hardly appreciate if parents are letting their k…
