“A man is what his mother makes him” Do you agree?


This mothers’ day, there have been a lot talks about mothers and motherhood. Meanwhile, a start plus promo clip caught the attention and we noticed how a mother made his son learn how to care and respect women. (Watch the video at the end)

If you have not watched it, let me tell you in this video a cute boy of 5 or 6 is sitting on the first seat in a bus while there comes a little girl with her mother. The mother of the boy vacates her seat to accommodate them and the little boy follows her mother by letting his seat to the famine duo. The clip tells us what and how much boys learn from their mothers when it comes to their way of treating another female in their lives. 

There was another picture message I noted a few years back in which a boy asks his mother how he can find the best women for himself. At this, his mother replies, “instead of focusing on selection of best women, focus on being the best man.”

We know that family is the first school for a child. For a boy, his mother is the first women he gets to know and understand. It is the mother who instil the qualities, like caring and respecting a woman, in a boy. As a child, a boy notes how a woman puts deep efforts in taking care of others in the family, how much she works at home and outside the home, how much she loves and how much she sacrifices for the sake of her family. Hence, the entire place of women in a family is well understood by a boy as long as he grows up into a lad. This really has a deep impact on a boy’s attitude and perception towards women. 

It is the mother who can make her boy understand the most sensitive questions of his life such as, what women like and how to become the dream man of a woman. A mother instils emotions in a boy who is otherwise meant to be strong and least emotional. Most boys don’t express their emotions as openly as women do since they bear the responsibility of being stronger gender in the world. However, men can easily express emotions before their mother; they can cry, they can complain, they can express their fear and can also express their love before their mother without being shy about this. 

Thus, for a sustainable society that is free from disguise against women, we really need responsible mothers of boys as they have a key role in not only making them a successful man but also in making them a responsible loving a and caring partner.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
