An ‘offer’…”you can not… refuse” !!

Red ROSE

In case of brown sugar / heroin, it is said, that you are hooked the first time itself and damned…. permanently….!!

Same is almost true, of most of the male-female dating / courtships, in India. For an average Indian male ( of course, there are exceptions ), having an affair with a girl is one way traffic. Getting in, is… easy, getting out… is tricky ( for the female).

No…no ….I don’t mean Indian boys are villains.They are mostly well behaved and decent. The problem is the typical Indian male mind set, the male ego. The society in general is such that it grooms the boy for the best and the best doesn’t incorporate rejection. And the society grooms the girls this way ( mostly, not each and every family) that she is trained to take rejection in her stride.

Therefore, let me make it very clear that Indian males are not the villains but rather, as much victims, of the social paradigms, as the girls are !!

PEER PRESSURE :

Another very powerful factor in this matter, is the peer pressure, the so called ‘manhood and honour’. The said boy’s image, among his friends, is hugely damaged if he has to face a “break-up” !!

Yes, education is spreading and spreading very fast and changes are visible. Education has brought in dating, Valentine day celebrations, red roses and “live-ins” but our male dominated society,  needs some more time, to be ready and tolerant about the “break-ups”.

Just to give you one example, have a look at this very very popular song from a very hit Hindi film “Dil Hi To Hai” ( 1963 ) beautifully sung by Late Shri Mukesh :

तुम अगर मुझ को न चाहो तो..कोई बात नहीं
तुम किसी और को चाहोगी..तो मुश्किल होगी !!

Translated :

( If you don’t love me…I have…no problem,

But if you love someone else…big problem ) !!

In case you are thinking that it is simply a threat, have second thoughts. Some ladies also thought so and actually ( and virtually, literally)  found themselves at the receiving end of a very fearsome punishment from their lovers – an acid attack :

 

ACID ATTACK

 

Of course the Indian Law takes its own course – a few years imprisonment for the “misguided youth” ( that is what our society and many political leaders think in general ). For the girl though, the trauma and the scars…..are….permanent for life ( if such an existence can be called a life ).

In nutshell, we can say that if the French men are famous all over the world for their “Love -making”, the Indian males are also not far behind….they ‘take’ the cake, for their “Love-taking” !!

So, the next time an Indian boy comes up with a “friendship request”, it is better to be just a friend in the beginning with a warning that…..conditions apply :

“I am engaged to someone or I am already in a relationship”.

Test the boy for some months at least, if not for years and in due course if you are satisfied, then share the pleasant truth with him and waive off the condition. This way, you will always be carrying ‘the three aces’ in the relationship, and shall be in the driver’s seat, at least in the first vital, decisive months… right ?

The ‘Satanic Guaranty’ !!

 

MAARRIAGE

ONIONS

 

DOMESTIC CHORES 2

 

DOMESTIC CHORES

 

DOMESTIC CHORES #3

 

If you are planning to get married, I guess, there is… one universally accepted norm / procedure / protocol :

 

1. Fall in love ( why “fall”, is there any secret pointer here ? It should be “rise” no ? ).

2. Propose.

3. If accepted, then fix the date and do it – tie the knot !!

In some cases though, it is not even love, it can be a simple crush, lust or infatuation …etc…, mistaken…for Love !!

Is that all ?

To me it all seems so incomplete.

Love is an emotion and emotions, like an old man’s blood pressure, are never constant.

Shaky, always…fluctuating. If it is constant then it is not love, emotions can not be constant… !!

When the base is shaky, can the building be stable ? 

As the love keeps on fluctuating, so does the marriage.

No doubt, Love is a very important part of marriage, but is marriage, all …about…Love…..nothing… else ?

Can a part… be… the Whole ?

I guess we need to  consult a ‘structural engineer’ ( ha…ha…) before laying the foundation stone of the building called “Marriage” !!

Marriage involves thousands of things, love being just the one of those…many important things !!

Love alone, is not and can not be, the basis of a successful marriage.

Talking of base, why not to start from the base with the basics.

Let us go to the First marriage ever – Grandpa Adam & Grand Ma Eve !!

Sex, money, lust all came after, this marriage was already successful.

Secret is and was, 100 % acceptance and the realization of importance, of each other. Eve was, in fact, a direct outcome of Adams need and his realization of her importance. Eve for Adam, was never a luxury item or an ‘item girl’.

Need & importance, ensured acceptance, an acceptance made further easy & threat-free, by the …absence of…CHOICE !!

Once married, door to undo the marriage, was permanently closed.

Adam and Eve did not behave like a couple of kids in a candy store because, there was no candy store. We HAVE candy stores, agreed. We can not get them closed, also agreed… but… we can always stop… shopping, even when there is a grand clearance sale !!

People ( me included ) are onions. Start peeling off the layers and be ready for a shock.

The Magic lies, not in the onion, but in “MY ONION” !!

To peel off just to see what is inside, is Satanic.

To accept ( 100 % ) the onion, to innovate with it, to use it in a recipe is Divine !!

The Secret to a successful marriage, is not in the onion – it is in the Recipe, your Recipe !!

Stop ” searching for / seeking Love” in your spouse’s recipe -“s/he doesn’t love me” !!

If you don’t have a recipe of your own, then find one, before you have the onion.

That reminds me, this ‘peeling off onions’ activity is getting very popular these days. But of course, we know it by a different fancy name – L.I.A ( “Live-in Arrangement”). LIA is very good for the people, not interested in getting married ( you know, some people simply peel off their onions and eat, as salad – very good !! )  but not a good option, as a ‘first step’ to getting married.

  

And let us be clear about one thing, onions don’t come with a replacement warranty  / guaranty, if there is, then it is a Satanic Guaranty.

What do you say ?

Waiting for your opinions, feedback, perceptions ( I have just shared mine )……  !!

Do we really get married ?

 

OPEN DOOR

Most of us, at one time or another in our life, take a decision to get married.

As per normal thinking, we take this decision because we have to.

Whether it is arranged or love marriage, we accept our partner and the acceptance is 50 to 95 %. We leave this 5 to 50 % margin, for any eventuality in the future  – just by way of a working arrangement. We enter the institution of marriage leaving the door slightly open – just in case we need to escape.

In case of other family members ( father, mother, sister, brother….), this margin is not kept. Acceptance is full 100 %.

 

Do we indulge in “a marriage of convenience” ?

Are we guilty of holding back ?

Do we really get married ?

 

Waiting for your valuable feedback / opinion / replies… !!

Wife “Beaters” vs. Wife “Kissers” !!

WIFE BEATER

If you are one of these, you have a great future in India. In case you got it wrong, let me tell you, I don’t mean a “wife-kisser”. I mean a “wife-beater” !!

Indian public loves only one sport “wife beating”. People forget to reach offices in time if they spot this sport being played in a street….such is the charm and excitement of watching it. Offices have to wait for their worthy professionals if they are detained either by the metropolis traffic or the ‘live watching’ of this sport. Legally, yes against the law but it is almost fully accepted and OK socially. Law enforcement agencies also don’t have to look the other way, because every one has a wife at home. Moreover, players need practice. Everyone knows that “practice makes a man perfect” and all husbands are “men” ( gentlemen don’t play this game for the reasons best known to them  !! ).

As we have Economy, we also have parallel-Economy, which is, in fact, more lucrative and attractive to Indians. Same way, we have Sports and also have Wife-Beating which is more engrossing and attractive, with a… huge… fan-following !!  

My personal choice is to watch ‘husband-beating’ actually, but this sport is comparatively new in India. Players are hard to find.

Coming back to our topic, this reminds me of a professor-colleague, who did not have much social exposure. On top of that , he was very young and we all know how rash youth can be, at times.  One day, his maid’s husband came to professor’s home looking for the maid. He took ( the maid’s husband not the professor ) the maid outside and started beating her. This professor ( as I told, did not have any social exposure like us ) got so offended that he ( rashly ) went and slapped the maid’s husband. Now it was professor’s turn to have some. No, it was not the maid’s husband who beat the professor, it was the maid. She was really pissed off by the professor’s rash and unexpected intervention / interruption, in what she said was “her privacy”. Game is game, the spectators should not gate-crash the sports-arena !!

After she ( the maid ) finished with the professor, the professor had another surprise ( unpleasant for the professor and pleasant for me – I must have my sport too ) waiting for him – his wife ( professor’s wife ) took over from where the maid had left off. Professor’s wife gave him four juicy ones – two for sympathizing with the beautiful maid and one for searching for a new maid and one for the road. Needless to say that our professor is a changed man, a lot saner and a lot wiser now.

“Wife kissers” on the other hand, I am afraid have no future in India. This dangerous activity is almost unanimously considered dangerous, socially offensive and obscene especially in public. India is a land of sadhus and ascetics. 

I know the hostile foreign media will ask this ferocious question that how come, we are almost 150 crores population without that necessary ” wife kissing” ?

Hey, we are a very innovative society. Remember, we are committed to use all energy for peaceful purposes. There are other peaceful,  non violent, respectable and safe “saintly-methods” which bear “good character” especially when, our sadhus and ascetics are always more than willing to give a helping hand or two, to contribute their share to nation-building. After all, they don’t do their discourses 24X7. In between they very efficiently “manage time” for other more productive things and courses. They are very liberal and very kind. Their left hand does not know what their right hand is doing and… their followers, don’t know what these saints are doing with “both” their hands. At times, they give kids with their blessings and at times they give blessings  with “their” kids !!

Our Sree, Sree & Sree DailyEnjoy alone is, not to mention our bench strength… in the form of Don N.D. Tinwari ( Don Non-Stop Donor Tinwari ), capable of giving a great and nerve shattering inferiority complex to Mr. Vicky Donor… !!

Now a million-dollar question :

Between these two ( ‘kissing’ and ‘beating’ ) which is negative and which is positive ?

Yours truly,

“Dictatorial” Democrats vs. “Democratic” Dictators !!

 

 

THINKING

 

 

“All dictators are ‘Hitler-bad’ and all democrats soft, flexible and nice”, right ?

Well, not easy to say – at least, for me !!

Undoubtedly I am a Gandhi ji and Sardar Patel fan / admirer but can we place both great men in one bracket ?

Can we call them 100 % Democrats ? Well Yes, but not 100 %.

For example, Gandhi ji, all his life, fought for freedom of India. For him opinions were very very sacred and important,  but only his own opinions.

He was very very adamant. In fact, that is one of the reasons I admire him – his mental strength. He was “a one-man army” !!

Secondly ( second reason for my admiration), for his invention of “Satyagrah” – the peaceful and non-violent method of agitation and insisting upon an issue /opinion and achieving it, fighting for it, till the success is achieved. Peaceful yet uncompromising !!

I guess, I have to coin a new category for Gandhi ji :

Dictatorial and yet Lovable… Democrat  ?

Sardar Patel, on the other hand was very flexible at times. Biggest example is, when he let Pundit Nehru become the first Prime Minister of free India. This ( PM’s seat / position ), was his ( Sardar Patel’s ) for the asking. Therefore, for me, he is the real democrat of the Indian politics. And yet, whenever his job ( India’s first Home Minister) demanded and in the larger National-interests, he proved to be a very efficient & a very ruthless administrator. And still in my mind at least, he remains a democrat !!

A very respectable, democratic and fair minded Dictator ?

Now let us move to a recent example – Dr. Manmohan Singh.

He is ( or was ) the strongest Finance minister ( in my opinion ) we ever had YET…..he has to be regarded as… the weakest Prime minister we ever had.

How many Dr. Manmohan Singhs we had ? Just the one. The same person !!

Have I confused you ?

MORAL OF THE STORY :

We tend to label people as dictators, democrats, strong, weak……etc. A person does not exist in a vacuum and same is true of a leader.

If Gandhi ji were born post-1947, would he still have become, the Gandhi ji we know ?

A great leader is the leader who changes his / her, T&C ( times and circumstances ), no doubt, but s/he still remains a product of… HIS or HER… T&C. Even the greatest are not able to, decide / choose, the Time and Place of their birth !!

What do you say ?

 

 

 Yours truly,

‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!
