IS EQUALITY A FAVOR?

Equality between men and women has been a long-term topic which crops up here and there, with some supporting in favor that equality has indeed been achieved, while some points that, modernism in the world does not even begin to cover equality.

While the world is divided on this topic, from my own personal experiences of these 22 years, equality is a term which people have not even begun to comprehend to the full extent. Equality between men and women doesn’t mean are so ‘generous’ as to ‘give’ the women equality as some sort of ‘favor’. Only when it comes naturally to people, just like we brush your teeth daily. It is not something that people has to do consciously, though at the beginning the need to develop the quality must essentially be started like that.

And to the men, who boast that, they treat their women equally, it is not something to feel proud of. Do you feel proud to provide food for your family? Like everything which is of a necessity, it is something that needs to be put in ‘default mode’.

There is no greater male chauvinist than a man who boasts of treating women around him equally.

 

THE BLAME WITHIN

The war within;

so horrendous that,

it terrifies me

of my future.

 

The clashes between, the past

trying hard to match,

with the future ‘imaginary castles’

that I am already living in.

 

I blame the heart, for

it is the culprit that overrode

the brain to make me believe

that unicorns exist.

 

The blame game starts-

the war waging between

the heart and brain

to decide who is the bane.

 

 

A SIMPLE GESTURE TO MYSELF, FROM ME!

Hello guys! Having a nice day?

No? You can try to make yourself feel better like me!

The other day, I had a rough day at work which had been followed by a series of rough days before it. When I usually feel bad, I end up sulking and wasting my whole evening. I was so tired of feeling sorry for myself that I decided to do a simple gesture for myself, instead of depending on the outside surroundings.

I did not do anything big. I wanted to feel good about myself, without any third person’s help. So immediately after I came back from work, I took a long, relaxing hot shower, wore my favorite pair of shorts and hoodie, combed my hair real nice like I like, and took out my favorite stash of chocolates, which I always save it for occasions like these! I started out with seeing my favorite series, obviously F.R.I.E.N.D.S (you would have guessed it, if you had read my previous posts!) and then continued on to read the Jeffrey Archer’s Best Kept Secret, which I was halfway through, but hadn’t completed because of, you know these series of rough days burying me.

I made myself feel good about myself, both physically and mentally and I ended up having a good time with myself. I even started playing  some songs and goofing around in my room, jumping up in my bed! That was how much I had lifted my mood up, and to say the least, even I was surprised that such a small gesture to myself brought such a big positive change on me!

That was when I realized that, our control of mood is with us, and not with anyone us. It all comes down to our own self to find out what makes us happy, what factor can bring us back to that little circle of inner contentment, to turn a bad day into good. The one thing is that, we have to really stubborn enough to stand up and say that, ‘Bring it on. Whatever you do, you can’t waver me from my good mood.’

If you guys are having a bad day, all it takes is ‘You’, to be happy amidst the bad day.

Once a F.R.I.E.N.D.S addict, always a F.R.I.E.N.D.S addict!

Once, during my college days, I was fed up of watching a lot of movies that I decided to watch an English Series for a change. And that was when I decided to see what all these hype was about F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And that is when my addiction towards it started.

Once I started watching it, there was no stopping. I was just burning through all the episodes in such a speed that my parents got worried about me because I use to laugh so loud in middle of the night that they would wake up! 😀 I was able to complete it within a month, watching it night and day during any possible free time I get.

That was when I realised that I found the perfect cure to all the problems. I don’t mean that the incidents from the episodes helped me directly, but watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. would distract me from my problems, cheer me up when I feel like I can’t get up and put a smile on my face when I’m all teary eyes. It would give me some amount of distraction from the problem by cranking me up so hard and get me in a lighter note so that, after sometime if I look at or approach the situation, I am able to percieve it from a newer angle, thus giving me the confidence that I never had before.

From that time on till now, not a week has passed since i haven’t seen F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I would just close my eyes and keep on clicking in the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. folder since any random episode shoots up ( :P) and I feel free from my worries for that 20 minutes.

 

Doesn’t feel like doing anything? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Feels like you have no one? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

A really bad day at college? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Wanna get away from all the chaos outside? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Got hurt by someone close? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Saturda night and no plans? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Feels like a loser? Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

 

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has helped me cope up with many major problems in my life than any other real , living person. I may seem delirious to some who haven’t watched it, but those who have will be able to get me 🙂

It has a made a total addict from which I never want to come out of.

I’m really thankful for F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for being an ‘Anchor’ in my life when no one was!
