It is because #SHE TOO


The recent #MeToo initiative turned into a campaign and a movement against sexual assault against women worldwide. The idea was started as an online impeachment against the Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, which women across the world have joined by sharing own stories and experiences of sexual assaults. There are ordinary women to film stars, sports figures to musicians and well-known personalities to adequately unknown sharing with each other the harsh they had been to.

Now that I know it is not just me but “she too”, “she too” and “she too”, I have a mixed feeling of pleasure and pain. So many issues of sexual assaults against women are brought to light giving us the real shades of the picture of women in a country that boasts of its being culturally nurtured.
We live a society that makes the accused feel ashamed of what she had to suffer on herself because of the sick mentality of someone else. She is made embarrassed of her own character despite the fact that she resisted with all her strength. It is a shame for a woman who suffers from sexual harassment and allows everyone made her feel ashamed if she reports. Though it is a positive take on from here that women have started revealing, accepting and admitting about such a huge issue which was otherwise forced hidden by those who raise questions of proof and witness after every reported issue is taken into the due long process. I don’t buy the reasons of women going westernized in what they put on and how friendly they interact with opposite gender. I always raise my doubt on what Seeta had been wearing when she was kidnapped and what Draupadi was wearing when she was insulted. Of course, saari!! But both Seeta and Draupadi were abused.

The hashtag MeToo movement helps us get the actual magnitude of how many women are in fact victims of sexual assault as many of such issues are left unreported otherwise. It is comforting how women are joining hands virtually at least by sharing their own experiences and comforting others by standing together. Though we miss here the number of those who are not on any social platforms to use the hashtag and add more clarity to the picture. We have infants and little girls who are facing sexual assault at an age they don’t even know how to react to it.
Unfortunately, incidents of bad eyes and bad touch are so common that women of any age any occupation are the victim of it. And being a very common and usual incident these are supposed to be ignored by most women. Gazing, chasing or passing on embarrassing comments are deal with by changing the routs and passing only in groups.

The burning issues of sexual assault against women are going worse every passing hour though we find it worth commenting and condemning only when movements like Nibhaya or #MeToo occur. Overall a big applause to the initiative that has given a voice to all those silent lips that are now adding to the rallying response with hashtag MeToo. All of us know this is not the solution but at least this brings to light a close to the actual figure of the problem. There is enough hope that the vocal would someday arrive at a solution after all analysis of the problem is the first step of arriving at the solution.

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…
