Turning 30

Turning 30 is such a social pressure. You must have a ‘must do by 30 list’. And you must discuss it with others. You must have a big party. And you must tell everyone. You must have big plans. And you must share it on social media. You must…. a lot of things. And everyone must know. 👻

Turning 30 is just a social pressure.

Nothing else changes. Nothing has changed for me. My life still sucks. I still feel inadequate. I still don’t know where my career is taking me. I still don’t have a stable relationship. I am still uncertain about a lot of things. So is the case with most of the ‘turning 30 soon’ or ‘just turned 30’ mob. If you are in this age range and you have something figured out… if you are where you thought you would be.. and things have planned out as per your plans even if more or less – please tell the rest of us what you did and how. And do DM me with your life coaching offer! 🙏

(which…..is…..not……round……).

What the …………..??? Continue reading

We rush to worship mediocrity, and are suspicious of anyone with superior abilities. DH photo

 We rush to worship mediocrity, and are suspicious of  anyone with superior abilities. If someone dares to push for  genuine change and improvement, we systematically close  ranks to shut him out and pretend superlatives cannot exist. But,  does popular appeal alone justify commonplace mediocrity?

 

Are we as a society guilty of herding together within the confines of mainstream mediocrity?

Don’t we, like the proverbial crabs, pull down anyone who dares to be better, back into our shallow intellectual buckets?

Did an eminent Indian hit the nail on the head by reportedly stating that 90 per cent of our countrymen are idiots? Continue reading

Let there be a mark!! But what? Where? When? – The story of ‘sindoor’

I wonder how the hindu society came up with the convention to symbolise women according their relationship status. Obviously women didn’t have any role or say in it, considering their age old suppressed position in the society. So it is the men of that age who would have come up with all sorts of conventions.

*Setting: A usual mid-day, a group of men discussing random things under a banyan tree, burping after their breakfast*

Someone cracked a joke and everyone went, “haha haha haha…. That was a good one”

Stud 1: Dude! Don’t you find it difficult when you look at these kanyas(girls) in their colourful ghaghras and sarees, to tell whether they are available or not? Continue reading
