"Dangal" (movie) effect, I am simply loving it..

Recently is launched the trailer and the poster of a very look-forward movie "Dangal". From the first sight of this movie’s poster, I am simply falling for it. Reasons are many and I am really desperate to discuss them. In the first look of director Nitesh Tiwari’s movie Dangal, which is going to be released on December 23, actor Amir Khan is surrounded by four girls all wearing what is popularly called a boy look. These girls are in t-shirt-lower and having a boy cut hair. If you look at the poster with the eyes of a parent, you would find it very close to your heart. Amir Khan is playing the role of a father of four girls, who turns his disadvantage (what our society says) too many daughters, not enough sons, into an advantage that makes him as famous as his wards.
The movie is impaired by the true story a man “Mahavir Singh Phogat” whose daughters Geeta and Babita Kumari and niece Veena are among the country’s leading wrestlers. This movie is celebrating the achievement of girls in a male-dominated sport, wrestling. I know, the movie is yet to release but at least trailer is making me believe this idea. And the best part about the movie poster is a punch line written on it “Mhari Choriya Choro se kam hai ke ? “ (Are my girls less worthy than boys?) The poster’s simple message is that the length of a woman’s tresses has nothing to do with her femininity or her ability.
Before the poster and trailer release, mostly the buzz about the movie was around Amir Khan and his 95 kgs body. But after poster release, everyone is eagerly waiting to see those four girls who are playing roles of wrestlers. In our country, the so-called ideal image of a woman must have long hair and beautiful face. This truism holds among many of poets, advertisers, filmmakers and even politicians. Every now and then, our grade one chauvinist pass verdicts about how a woman should dress herself and how should she behaves. But I really want this movie to clean the minds of such people who are still trapped in the world which is male-dominated.
Although, I have a son but I have very closely seen the discrimination which our society does with parents who don’t have a son. My parents have only two daughters and my mother had to face so much of hatred, every from my own family members because she could not make a boy. The poster of the movie reminds me my father who always encouraged his daughters (me and my sister) to prove themselves equally efficient and competent as boys are. This poster made me realize the acrimony that my mother faced while raising her girls like boys.Our parents sent us in good schools/colleges and people criticized them for wasting money on educating girls. They send us out of the town for pursuing our careers and people made fun of them for giving unnecessary freedom to their girls. But at the end they succeeded, their girls made them feel proud among those nasty crowd which still do injustice with girls. Today we (me and my sister) are successful and settled in our lives whereas boys of my family and in society circle around my family are still struggling.  I wish this movie would definitely bring some change in people’s mind who still think this world is made for men and women are only for serving them!

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
