beauty lies in eyes

yesteryears were great days where no one judged us from our appearance or looks but just from the goodness in our hearts, the sweetness in our talks, the gratitude in our actions and respect for our elders and most importantly, our character!!!!!!! But the days flew off in jiffy and here we are standing in "ghor Kaliyug" (It is said that King Kali wanted to rule humanity so he extensively worshiped lord Vishnu and when the lord was pleased , he was granted the wish that in his rule people will be easily influenced by badness n show-off and would remain neutral from goodness that's why in Kaliyug new idioms came in existence like "Bhalai ka zamana nahi hai", "Chor chor mausere bhai", Ye Kaliyug hai yahan aisa nahi hota" and "Kis zamane ki baat kar rahe ho") where we are judged by the variety and brand of our clothes, the number and type of shoes, floaters we wear, the expensive perfumes we utilize, the utilities and comforts we have at our homes, the big and expensive cars and everything associated with maintaining outer standards and of course, if you are bespectacled like me what brand you wear on your eyes to beautify them............

Yyyyyyeeesssssssss...to beautify them.....gone are the days when we used to buy things as per our requirements or needs and would only keep the purpose of our purchase the sole criteria as our target like Arjun would only see the eyeball of fish, nothing else.....but nowadays, along with the purpose, the cost-effectiveness, the stylish nature, the suitability and adaptability on our face and the aura it adds to our face to personify it are the major boosting points while purchasing any eye wear. Moreover, a funky eye wear maybe spectacles or goggles has become a prestige issue for youngsters like us to flaunt in our peer group. There is variety of eye wear available in the market be it off-line or on-line for a variety of reasons:-

a)To hide your facial flaws

b)To accentuate your strong facial features
c)To give appearance to your face slimmer/fuller as per the case
d)To make you look mature 
e)To give your face an innocent child like look
f)To make your facial beauty more highlighted
G)The plain glass look- Some people just love to flaunt glass look without requirement or to add funk to their total look and stand out....no wonder than that i have quite a number of eye wear in my personal collection to standout in crowd or just be different (!!!!!!!!!!!!!) 

adding oomph to my look 

Though it has become a norm for adults to accentuate their look or transforming whenever possible and affordable but kids are not lagging behind. My kids are too fond of the eye wear too...love flaunting their looks and get clicked..

  Here comes my girl's second look

before some days, my son asked me to get him a cat-eye glasses so that he can flaunt them in front of his classmates and yes to add some sex-appeal to his looks (the meaning of what he said to me- mamma, main bhi apki tarah acha dikhna chahta hoon taaki log meri tareef karen) so i ordered one from him from lenskart.com...

the glasses i received are too classy, hot and happening and beyond comparison, the material is solid and durable and the glasses are capable for a complete makeover...<3 

Gone are the days when the girls wearing glasses were simply rejected for a beauty defect which was never their fault now the girls proudly flaunt their prized possessions and even the prospective grooms even don't care and find it an added feature in the girl's charisma <3 <3....

Now coming back to the point, yes!!!!!! " the beauty lies in the eye of the spectator" has become obsolete and a new term "beauty lies in the eyes of the person wearing sassy glasses" who's giving a visual treat to the spectator and is slowly gaining the momentum to become talk of the town.....AS MEEEEEEE :)

Happy Advising Day

In India, we are too fond of two things, food and giving advises!!!! Though food is in our pulse rate but advice has also been in our life-line since ages. If our fathers and forefathers don’t give enough advises in a day, their food doesn’t get digested and they have to eat some digestive powders or candies to get the process done. The advises has formed such a big chunk of our lives that we can simply calculate the number of hours spent in a year are passed giving advises. We are lending it to our friends, our peer groups, our cousins, our younger siblings etc. Our fathers are lending it to every known and acquaintance, every relative, every friend, every kid and every teenager; our grandma passing it on to her daughters and daughter-in-laws, our parents passing it to their immediate kids and their peer group…ooophhhh!!!!!!! An unasked n unsolicited world of ADVICES!!!!!

Now the question arises is that why it has been a favorite hobby, pastime or temptation area for almost everyone in our society, what makes it everyone’s favorite and to-do-thing when we are left with nothing to do and why it’s so therapeutic and have serious light weight effect on our body and mind that we seriously wonder as if we have become feather light after getting advises out of our mouth)))))))))) Have you ever felt so light and refreshing after giving advice to somebody else….have you ever felt that all the toxins that you have collected in the food process and in your breathing process are leaving your body altogether after giving a piece of advice to whosoever whether he wants it or not….whether he needed it or not…Lets find out first why we are so fond of giving advises to others:-
A)   We have seen our fathers, forefathers, mothers, grandmothers and every other member in our household since childhood that we have unknowingly added it to our moral rights.
B)   We Indians are so soft hearted and always want to do goodness of others and don’t want anything bad to happen to them.
C)   If a person is sounding or looking dull and is lacking interest in even his/her day to day activities, we automatically assume that the other person is in dire need of some advise
D)   We have this tendency to poke our noses and dive into unknown and restricted territories of others’ personal life that we keep on insisting the other to share his problem areas and find a clue to just start showers of advises.
E)   We believe ourselves to be the subject matter expert and also believe that working on your advice, the other person is gonna  benefited abundantly and will subsequently get rid of his problems.
F)   We are so observant of our surroundings that we have seen many people with the same problem coming up with the same solution as you advised is gonna solve the recent problem.
G)  We have become much experts after getting endless number of advises from our grandparents, parents, teachers, relatives, acquaintances and even unknown people that we want to relish the same cooling effect which comes after giving advises to someone else.
H)   We feel that the toxins, resentment and ill-will which have gathered in our bodies since childhood will release and the strong desire to revolt will simply become a vacuum.
I)     We believe that it is our birth-right to do this and we are serving mankind by this sheer act of selfless service and are helping our Indian brothers and sisters.
J)    We feel a certain burden from our cumbersome heads is thrown off as we never tend to listen the advises from anyone and never bothered to give them a second for consideration.
K)   We feel that we are a good human being and good citizens of India to be handling the people’s sentiments with love and care.
L)   We feel that this way we are contributing to our national development and character building of our country and doing a Mother Teresa Work without any greed and long term incentives.

Though this is a humorous take on why we love to giving advice, I will be back with a serious version of it too very soon…till then….keep giving advises. Happy advising@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What are indians all about

We are Indians and love to flaunt this everywhere we go but what if somebody asks us to reveal the flavor of Indian-ness or what it means to be an Indian in all capacities??? Have we ever tried explaining to a gentleman belonging to some other country what Indians are all about........have we pondered ourselves what it all takes to be an Indian and how do we differentiate ourselves from others.....we are simple yet yet puzzled,we copy or get inspired from everywhere so we are international outside but desi inside, we love flaunting our imported cars but value our moral system so much that we still instill the same values we got from our elders, we relish our international holidays but we still love to visit religious places in our own country, we may roam the entire world but we feel the warmth of our own country, we ,may try different cuisines from all over the world but can never forget the taste of the food cooked by our mothers, we can always cook ready made packet foods but will always prepare pickles or chutnies at home, we love eating at McDonald or KFC but still we sit at floor and eat from our own hands, we are touching the skies internationally in sports, education, movies, medical, aerospace and what not but still touch our elder's feet, we have international stadiums but still feel happy playing in streets, we do rock n roll and bhangra with same passion, we learn English in school but still talk to our kids in our mother's tongue, we have many crushes but still love our partners wholeheartedly, we love to fight and we fight for love, we may be having many issues within our country but we take it in our stride with confidence that someday the conditions will be favorable, we love to laugh and celebrate with others and we are famous for taking jokes on us sportingly....Going to a wedding uninvited, telling fake stories to our friends and feel proud when they actually start trusting, faking illness just to Avoid some work and utilize that time as some fun time, telling our siblings that they are lifted from a garbage place, getting to sleep listening to stories by grandma......though these small things make us live life in all colors but certainly we are not exclusive of flaws and shortcomings....

incredible india taj mahal

Everything is available in our own country but still we fancy imported items. We respect our mothers and grandmothers but not our daughters and wives, we want to protect our own family but never think what is happening in our neighborhood, we think on individual level not on collective level, we want to get benefited from our efforts but doesn't think if my society or country is getting benefited from it or not, , we want to enjoy the fruits of our labor all alone but don't want to share it,  we want to get away from our wrong doings by bribing but we feel breaking the rule is our birth right, We feel ashamed to accept our mistakes, we want our government to work for us but we don't want to help our government in running the rules effectively, we don't want to give birth to daughters but certainly want to bring them home for our boys and certainly look for them in Durga puja or Navratri to get blessings, we have divided the society in to a male dominated them but we still worship goddess Durga, we  talk big about woman rights but still marry them in lieu of dowry, we fight against rapes but still push our sons to go out late but insist our daughters to stay at home, we want the ladies of our house fully decked up but watch porn on the Internet, we marry off little girls but we don't want our widows to remarry, we talk about misuses of technology but sit with our kids to watch television while chatting on face book or twitter, we want our kids to speak in English as a prestige issue but are ignorant if the child knows his mother tongue, we teach our kids to always find faults but never praise or being thankful what they have, we want our kids to be all rounders but are short to fill his self with love, trust and patience, we have all the time in the world for social media but don't have time to sit with our elders, we can work all day for a meal but cant eat that meal with peace and gratitude, we bring CDs and DVDs for our kids' educational purposes but never encourage them to sit with their grandparents, we hire maids and servants and depend our and our kid's all needs on them but don't encourage the tendencies to do our work with our hands, we lack patience where servants and maids of our house are concerned, we fight on trivial issues ignoring the bigger ones, we don't teach our kids moral values and don't make them see their responsibilities but only rights, we don't see right and wrong.....Dear INDIANS!!!!!!!!!!!!Where are we going  !!!!!! Plz look!!!!! Ghar aaja pardesi tera des bulaye re!!!!!!
