We today celebrate yet another REPUBLIC DAY. How ever, what should worry us is that the 60th Republic Day of the country would also pass of as just another National Holiday ! I somehow dnt understand what is so 'national' about the R-Day celebrations? As the country showcases its military might and vibrant cultural heritage..the question that remains to be answered is that do these celebrations still stir in us the same passion as it did during the days of the freedom struggle, do we still feel enthused or do we just spend another cosy day in the warmth of our rooms?

In the wake of booming economic growth and growing consumerist culture do we still take pride in our national flag which is sold a dozen a dime at traffic junctions all over the country....

Being from an army family, as a child i grew up seeing the Republic Day parade and even today when its been years since i witnessed the celebrations at Rajghat, i think the least we can do is spare some time to think about the contributions and sacrifices made by the great leaders of our country and how we as responsible citizens can contribute our bit in making India a truly Independent Nation ...!!!

Ever since this birthday of mine ...where i was gifted the maximum number of chocolates ever ...i have been so lost in this dark world...

"Chocolate is food of the Gods"

That is how a Swiss botanist labeled it centuries ago, when he was blessed with his first taste...
I personally love chocolates..n though fully aware about the adverse effects I have not in the least been persuaded to lay down this chocolate habit !Yet, I try not to let my love of chocolates overtake me.... :) :)
I have restricted myself to having chocolates very rarely...specially wen am upset ! A chocolate is always around in my room to satisfy a random urge...to say a "Thankyou" or "Happy Bday " or just to take a nibble !!!! Yes I am chocolate crazy but i have my own standards....I must eat only the BEST ! And rite now ...i am enjoying the goodness of BOURNVILLE AND FERRERO! Yummmmmmm...

Did i make your mouth water yet...???
Oh ...C'mon ....go treat yourself !!!  :) :)

WE CARE....!!!! Spread the wings of breast cancer awareness.. !

A day or two ago wen i first received this message in my Facebook inbox i was a lil puzzled...
Some fun is going on…. just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color, nothing else. It will be neat to see if this will spread the wings of breast cancer awareness. It will be fun to see how long it takes before people wonder why all the girls have a color in their status…
A little apprehensive...and a little amused..! But then within just a couple of hours i could see all my girl frends have colors as their status messages..and lo .. there was i with BLACK as my status message. Usually i do not overshare, most of us dnt ..but when it is for a good cause..why stay behind !

The campaign has marked the first successful use of Facebook status updates with very few words to send a powerful message across.. the message about BREAST CANCER AWARENESS.
Breast cancer, is one form of cancer that is easily curable if diagnosed in the early stages...and lack of awareness is one of the major reasons for its spread. And the disease is not uncommon ...one n every 9 women is affected ! So if this campaign helps even one woman ...just one ..is it not worth the effort ?
The campaign has been a landmark in viral marketing and has served as a fast, free and fun way for women to raise awareness about breast cancer and remind other women to get themselves examined....The thought of the disease crossed our minds more than, on any other normal day and even though it fell on deaf ears ..it helped many even if just for a few moments.
Simultaneously...the back lash against the campaign has also started wd hate groups and grps like i dnt want to know the color of your bra being started...but frends...there is a cause associated with it ...and the least we can do is spread awareness !
So girls gear up and jopin the campaign :)

Well, though i am normally associated with extreme feminsim and "male bashing" statements...this time i am here to raise concerns over the recent judgement passed by an apex court where they said that " the courts could have faith on any girl or woman in the country who seeks justice against sexual assault !"
If we can talk so much about gender equality these days why have gender biased laws that are skewed towards women ...there are already many laws to protect the interests of women ...laws against domestic violence, dowry, female feticide, we have reservations for the girl child, the single girl child..the women reservation bill and what not ...
On one hand these laws confer protection on women on the other hand they confer undue power to abuse men on women. We already have so many genuine cases illustrating the rampant misuse of the Dowry Law by unscrupulous women to extort money and harass their husband’s entire extended family. So how can we gurantee that women who complain against sexual abuse shall not be misusing this power ??? Such laws would only continue to perpetuate gender discrimination and not put an end to it ! After all who says men can't be abused...???? LOL !
In my opinion, the Indian government has done enough to support structures for women who want to launch violence or harassment complaints, and make the criminal justice system, particularly the police, more gender sensitive and now its time to wait and watch before passing more judgements in favor of women, lest this law becomes yet another misguided attempt to enact legislation to grant women legal supremacy over men and to create a society where men are deprived of their rights...!!!!
