the art of pampering

if you pamper your kid on the dining table
 kid will never understand the value of food
 if you pamper your kid while playing next door
 kid will never know the value of neighbourhood
 if you pamper your kid daily on the study table
 kid will never be able to read between the lines
 if you pamper the kid by giving whatever he want
 kid will never understand the meaning of necessity
 if you pamper the kid by accompanying him always
 the kid will never know how to move the next step
 if you pamper the kid by agreeing to whatever he says
 the kid will never understand the pain of denial
 but still you need to pamper the kid at many occasion
 pamper the kid when he loses in school competition
 pamper him to be disciplined, to respect opposite gender
 pamper him to accept defeat, to develop sportsman spirit
 pamper at the right time, right place and in a right way

Parenting in middle age

fath

Being a father is definitely the most beautiful and blissful feeling and becoming father in the middle age is a heavenly thing. As per the unwritten norms of our society, marriage for a male generally takes place somewhere between 24-28 years and for a female between 21-25 years. As the couples reach their forties, they generally travel far from the parenting business and stay confined to fulfilling the daily needs of the kids which most of the times remain limited to the local purchases from the market.

a great partnership

it is time to retrospect if you are a real partner

if you don’t fit in there, time to try a bit harder

do you stand by her, when she faces her in laws?

do you look at mirror, while pointing her flaws

do you play with your kids each and everyday?

do you do the kitchen when she has to overstay?

do you help her when she goes through the pain?

do you honour her NO for pleasures you wish to gain

do you too go for fasting when she does it for you

do you respect her emotions, freedom and point of view

if you follow all these you are indeed an ideal mate

this is the way you can make the partnership great!

the real income

Oh god give me the reward for my spirit

of my patience and my perennial grit

let the new flower blossom in my home

let me come out the failure syndrome

the wait period appear like centuries

embedded with deep mental injuries

there need be appreciation for my efforts

the prohibited luxuries, forbidden comforts

I know you will be coming down to earth

so you made me understand the real worth

let the fresh flower cast the magic smell

into the world with its miraculous spell

and make me proud in the years to come

that shall be my life’s treasure income

Should a working woman marry?

mar

Though the question appears bit unorthodox, looking at the current socio-economic environment, its relevance cannot be undermined. Though marriage is an institution, there is no compulsion that everyone should attend it. With the quantity of divorces on the rise and the domestic crime graph touching zenith, the belief in this institution is slowly thinning. Further, the trend of live-in relationship is also on the rise which is slowly making the paper called marriage certificate, obsolete. Continue reading
