O my doppelgänger!

O my doppelgänger, I can see your anger

you wan’t me smart, but I remain candor

that has cost me heavily in all my endeavors

my contemporaries excelled, I remained in fears

you told me to be diplomatic but I didn’t change

my straightforwardness was regarded as strange

you asked me to be ambitious I remained same

neither cared for fame nor worried for name

you told me to be opportunists, biased and selfish

but I thanklessly didn’t even fulfill your wish

so, O my doppelgänger, I respect your anger

I will remain as I am, don’t try to tamper

the life bubble

they say life is a bubble, let it be

at least colourful world I can see

the bubble may burst some day

till then let me live my life my way

God has blown this bubble for us

let no one try to prick it or crush

the bubble may float up or down

we may feel happy or may frown

but the bare fact of the life is clear

till bubble lasts cheer without fear

our CAMC

Recently we received a very sensitive and expensive machine for our office that was awaited for long. As with every new thing, this machine was also treated like a newlywed bride in our office. Care was taken to position it as per the standards. The area kept clean and dust free. Only qualified personnel were only asked to operate it. The fear was that it should not start malfunctioning because then we all will find trouble in meeting the targets. Continue reading

our story

your agonies are yours, my sufferings are mine

we have differing mind we have distinct design

your pleasures are yours, my happiness is mine

we have differing souls, we have separate sign

you are a party animal but I am a lonely bird

you remain in your flock but I prefer my herd

you withdraw yourself but I want it on the face

you may be an angel but I am from human race

your lifestyle is different, my lifestyle is discrete

you always want to win but I embrace the defeat

we have different lives, but something is common

that makes two of us bit different from everyone

though my story is mine and your story is yours

let’s carve a fresh story that can be called ours

my allergies

They say that I am full of zeal and energy

but the reason is that I am full of allergy

I am allergic to prevailing malfeasance

I am allergic to professional negligence

I am allergic to waking up in morning

I am allergic to roots of global warming

I am allergic to people behaving stupid

I am allergic to someone playing cupid

I am allergic to negativity in the masses

I am allergic to weight reduction classes

I am allergic to facing weekly mondays

I am allergic to working slots on sundays

I am allergic to people always on phone

I am allergic to fingers full of gemstone

I am allergic to people predicting future

I am allergic to people married to computer

I am allergic to the internal server error

I am allergic to people promoting terror

if one feels hurt I tender my appologies

I am proud and I love al these allergies

Men-the weaker sex

I was reading on internet about various instances where a husband has given divorce to his wife just by pronouncing ‘Talaq’. And with the advent of new technology in our daily lives, the deliverance of this type of divorce also has automatically been upgraded to match the latest trends.

So, now it is the video call, the WhatsApp, the Facebook and all such tech friendly social media which is being exploited by the dominant men to show women their place! The big question is why the mindsets are not upgraded?

I always wonder, if leave the religious binding, how exactly it works? I tried telling my wife, ‘Shut up’, Shut up’, ‘Shut up’, three times, still there was not much appreciable effect. However I have noticed that when the same is from her side, even for just one time, the effect is perceptible. This is attributed immediately to woman dominating in the family. So, is there anything wrong in that?

Men literally have no moral, social and technical right to dominate in a family. The only fact that they have a different biological structure that makes them less susceptible to physical abuse and harm is being taken as the license to declare themselves superior.

The greater part of the society still follows that orthodox unethical logic and resists the change. But the real fact is that, if the social security is guaranteed, there is absolutely no need for women to be dependent on men but the vice-versa is not true. That makes men the weaker sex.

How many single fathers are successful? If we see the data, due to natural and social causes, more women were forced to stay single despite having the responsibility of raising their kids. Men immediately jump to the next boat of marriage which they do get easily, thanks to the biological and social reasons. That again proves men the weaker sex.

Most of the men are born to women (except those who indulge in rape and killings of women) and when they are young, they understand the power of a woman. They are purely dependent on their mother and respect women till the testosterone levels rise, social influences dominate and mould them into the absurd personality of a man. That is the real sign of a weaker sex.

How many men know how to change the diapers of the babies? How to bottle feed them? What is their immunization schedule? When to start the solid food? And above all how much time do men spend with their infants though being the best phase of a man’s life?

Few of my uncles have never held their kids on their lap? They limit themselves to asking the questions, where is the kid? What is she or he doing? Is everything fine? That’s it! They have never sat with their kids for talking with them, playing with them, making a project or making them do their homework.

These men think, their job is only to earn money and that is the reason why they are the head of the family. They think that they run the family and without them everything will come to a standstill. How can one call such men as fathers? They don’t understand that this limits them to mere sponsors or in most case, the ‘sperm donator’.

So, if a man gets a civilian job that requires him to stay away from family frequently or for long then better to take up farming instead. Those who feel that being busy in meetings, staying late night in office for earning money is fetching comfort to their family members and helping them leading an extravagant life, it is totally wrong. There are many things money can’t replace and one of them is togetherness. It is always the ‘family first’.

Marriage is a deemed institution with no one as the principal. Husband and wife are the faculty members and other relatives, the supporting staff. Parents raise the kids imparting the education that no external school can. I am still not able to understand how it can be closed by just a voice or a video call or a message?
