“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.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
