"Ohh.. My Godess" (A Fiction Story)


One day, Goddess Laxmi went to her husband Lord Vishnu and said "Dear Vishnu, I think its high time for me to change my get up"
The Lord replied,"Why? Whats the problem dear. You wear expensive silk saree precious jewellery and have long hair.. You are the ideal women for people on earth.."
"Not any more", the Goddess replied taking a deep breadth.
"Last night I looked for the pending requests in my system and I was shocked to see there are no pending requests  in my inbox from ladies asking for decent husband"
"Then, Narad told me the that the time has changed. Women on earth are no longer striving for getting married. You know.. Ladies are very cool and chose comfortable get up these days."
"Narad has also told me that all ladies these days send requests related to their career. They ask for selections, promotions and increments". "Ladies want a handsome salary not a handsome man. They think, if they have a decent career there is a list of men to choose form for them"
The Lord said, "I see.. So you start showering your blessings on those men who wish to have such women as their wives."
"That too seems out of my services area", the Goddess tagged," Men no longer wish to have a wife who has long hair, wears silk saree or heavy jewelry, neither they ask for a women who can make traditional food for them or acts as just a homemaker". " They ask for a lady who earns at least 1Lakh in a month or have a government job to marry with them and my problem is such ladies do not even want to get married until they become general manager or CEO of a company".

"Time has changed and I also think we should have a makeover now. Or else there would be a day when people will stop resembling me with the most charming ladies on earth. I no longer want to have such old fashioned get up"
"Nobody wears heavy gold jewellery, i want to change these ones with platinum and diamond sets now. I would select a designer dress or may be pick one of those brushed on the Red Carpet. Instead of holding this golden pot of gold coins, I think I should hold shares of Google, Apple and facebook."
"Why don't you gift me one Ferrari, my owl would drive it. And you are not a man who has constant leg pain why should I pose serving your legs all the time."
"You also don't need to close your eyes and look around the world for people in trouble. I suggest join facebook and twitter. It had been a time you and I were asked about the things people didn't know, they make a google search and find the answer, now" "And I think, its faster" "Nobody resorts to keeping fast of 16 Fridays to find the perfect match, they register on matrimonial sites in the morning and find a perfect match by the night"
The Lord smiled and said, "Dear, change is the only thing constant I have made for the world and you are free to chose the style you like. Find a new designer and put on the new get up by the time I would arrange a new photographer to find our new pose in which you are passing on a signature card to me for my help in operating the world".

Goddess Laxmi is thinking about it..

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…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage
