domestically-challenged wife

I remember when we got our wedding date confirmed the only thing I was worried about was whether I will get the required amount of leave from work. January was always a busy time and to get a month off was a task. Not even once did I wonder about my kitchen skills. Could I get married not knowing how to make round rotis and yummy dal? I cared not!

I joined work 2 week after I got hitched. I remember picking out a nice dress to wear to work because I was sure people would come over to congratulate me. I remember stopping by the kitchen, making two cups of tea and rushing off to work. Kitchen < Looking pretty in a dress: this was my equation.

It's going to be two years since I got married and I still love my self-given domestically-challenged tag. I have upped my skills to making some steamed veggies (which my husband loves), certain baked dishes and everything else that can be prepared in five minutes flat. My dal is very watery, my maid cooks the rotis and my house, although not unclean, is not very neat. But I am happy, truly happy!

It's funny how people judge wife`s abilities by two things: how fast you can produce kids and how good cook you are. I fail miserably on both counts! So does the fact that I don't excel domestically mean that I am a bad wife? I think not!

I earn and help my husband take care of the bills. I am well-read and can hold interesting conversations with him and his friends when we entertain, I can add numbers real quick and if he wants to cross-check any fact, I am the one who can give him the info in a matter of minutes (thanks to Google and a good phone). Am I still a bad wife? A lot of people seem to think so.

My mother, when I got married and was stressed about not knowing how to make food, told me this: When I got married even I didn't know how to cook (background info: my mom cooks the best food ever). I took heart from this and continued with life. A lot of people advised, ‘That's nice. Now you can learn how to cook.' Well, I spent the time having book-reading marathons that made me wiser, not in the kitchen, but in life. Well, I took their advice, a part of it at least. I stayed home and spent the time keeping everyone positive and hopeful. I didn't cook him curry (his mom did) but I felt that the companionship helped him. Bad wife again!?

I just don't get the emphasis we put on our women and their domestic tuning. I am a proud bread-winner and no, I still don't wish to learn how to cook. I have a maid for that. I have one life and I want to spend that on holidays, reading as many books as I can and sitting by my window sipping tea on a rainy morning. Not in the kitchen, sweating it out and making aloo mutter.

I am a domestically-challenged wife and I have no plans of changing that anytime soon. When I get that much-hyped life flashback, a moment before I am about to die, I will remember all the happy memories and you can remember your round rotis!? Till then please keep the cooking advice to yourself and let me order some yummy Chinese food while I read my book.

Kanyadaan - Mahadaan



We talk about women advancing in their careers and lot more other things. But it is sad to see that there is actually no advancement in the thoughts of the people. It’s time for us to change and advance our traditions a bit. Girl should no longer be treated as paraya dhan, there should not be dowry system at all, the girl’s parents should not feel bad about staying with their daughter after she gets married. Why should an educated girl stay at home “to look after the family” against her wishes? Is it only her family? Is it only her responsibility? Even the working women are expected to come home from office, do the house-hold work, take care of the children’s studies, and lots more. The men supposedly come home tired from work. What about the women? Aren’t they human too? They too have their space.
 If we consider all these factors and try to balance them a bit then society can be much better. Girls are never burden on the parents. She is equally important as a son.
 I have learnt in my history classes that in ancient India, women had a position of great respect, importance, and admiration. How did this erode over the period of time? Why do the people still have the ingrained attitude that believes in the worthlessness of a girl? Why do people feel that a girl is a curse on the family? Why are people who are avid followers of Maa Durga or Vaishnav Devi pained at the birth of a girl in the family?  If a girl is educated and is earning as much as boy is, in what way is she less appealing than the guy?
I feel a guy should always understand and respect their wife and their parents. He should also take care of her family like she does for him and his family then only harmony can be created in their married life for forever. In marriage equality is a key rule always.
Kanyadaan is often dubbed as Mahadaan (donation of the highest order). It is one of those irrefutable rituals the father of the bride is entrusted with the 'sacred responsibility' of performing kanyadaan to his son-in law as one of the greatest daans during the wedding ceremony where they give their most treasured possession to him for lifetime.
http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/images/pixel.gif
BUT Daughters are not voiceless cows that they should be gifted away to anyone. Guy should understand their duties and responsibilities of taking this Mahadaan and must feel obliged to receive this sort of unconditional love which he will be getting for his life. A Guy must be thankful to God, her wife, her parents and his parents for everything they recieve from them in marriage.

Aries Men and Virgo Women - Marriage Compatibility



When the youthful and highly energetic Aries soul comes in contact with a mature and defensive Virgo soul, we can witness a lively blend of emotions and practicality in their relationship. They both are helpful creatures and like to stand beside one another in times of needs but are definitely not in favor of each others’ views towards life.
Aries man is always teeming with fresh ideas and he detests anyone who tries to snatch away his glory. He has a youthful aura which is very charming and attractive. He has naïve feeling about love but those feelings may sound childish to a tactful Virgo girl. He will always find her to be very pleasant and synchronized lady with purity of love only a Virgo can provide. But at times Aries man in love with a Virgo girl finds it difficult to keep up with her practicality, which makes him outrageous.
While a Virgo woman is best known for her analytical abilities and they can easily determine flaws in anything and everything around them. She has a hard-head in realizing her mistake as she considers herself a pedant. But at the same time she has a very polite manner which is very bright and rejoicing to experience. A Virgo woman in courtship with an Aries man has never to starve for love and loyalty. But she may find him careless and immature sometimes which may disturb her emotional peace of mutual affection for some moments.
A Virgo woman is just a perfect face of delicacy with brains. She has a beautifully imaginative soul but is a butcher when criticizing the weak points of anything or person. Her modesty is adorable and her sheer love is no less than a priceless gift to people around her. Having her as his partner, An Aries man is provided with someone who completely supports all his endeavors and is always there to guide his with her bright and intelligent suggestions. Though this may sometimes challenge his male superiority but now it’s his turn to understand that this is her way to show love and concern. She always likes to be herself and wants her man to be himself; pretention is something out of her dictionary. This not only gives a sense of relief and freedom to him but also builds a mutual trust and understanding between both of them. One thing he has to keep in mind is that she has clarity of vision and can never accept herself to be wrong. She is always correct in her eyes and no one can ever do things in a better way than herself.
An Aries man always provides a Virgo woman with the energy and passion she lacks in her individuality. He is a great admirer of intellect and appreciates every aspect of womanhood of her. But at the same time he hates to be guided and dictated. This hurts his ego and his self-superiority leading to clashes in the relationship. He always supports his Virgo woman in her blues and is beside her in all ups and downs. His loyalty and courage is something that drives her crazy and she is ready to be his co-pilot in all his exciting trips which fills in oomph in her life too. She has to just avoid being bossy with him as this is one thing he can never stand. He can sooth away all the fears and worries of her and teach her to be more open and expressive at least with him. He is a jolly mate being with if treated properly and can take her to the skies of her imaginations and expectations with his passionate ways of loving and expressing.
As the earth and fire combines to make a flowery relationship, they create miracles of empathetic and standing difference with long lasting selfless love. Once they are drenched in purity of love, an Aries male defines love as unselfishness and an awareness of his Virgo woman’s needs and she defines love as spontaneous trust and enthusiasm for his dreams. Both can mend the silver cord that links them together each time it breaks with the magical healing power of their passionate love and strong practicality. After adapting to his attitude towards criticism, the Virgo woman could stop interfering while if needed he can welcome her criticism as a beneficial piece of advice. The peace and happiness of serving is equally distributed in their hearts which such contentment that earth just absorbs the fire so soothingly that even fire forgets to burn… what prevails is a forever warmth which is eternal.
These two could allow their romance to gradually take the form of a less emotionally demanding and more mutual mental respect. A lot of action and attraction prevails in the physical relationship shared by the Aries man and the Virgo woman. But he needs to give time to his lady to refresh her desires and needs. He is truly and blindly romantic whereas realism rules the head and the heart of the Virgo woman. But one thing that is common in these two is purity of love and oneness, which is displayed through their lovemaking. There is immense passion in their physical relationship as their sexual unity provides the cool earth surface with the heat of fire. He exudes a lot of passion but at the same time he is very affectionate towards her and she really appreciates these small nuances displayed by him. He should understand that she cannot match up to the level of his passion towards the physical relationship because she tends to carry a lot of baggage in her mind, and as a result her degree of devotion towards the physical part of the relationship is a bit less than him.
Virgos and Aries are on different wavelengths and though Virgos find Aries as exciting people and Aries always admire the intelligence of a Virgo; their relationship has to look forward to take up their differences in proper manner. Though Aries are very innocent and lovable but their ego and aggressiveness always dampen the spirit of a fragile Virgo. And on the other hand Virgos are no doubt very honest and polite people but their criticism and shyness always give a set back to the confident and excited Aries person. But they have a lot to learn from each other. When he starts understanding and respecting her personality, then she opens up and discusses her problems with him. And once he becomes aware that her reason of criticism is just her attitude and nothing personal, he starts taking her advice seriously.

Companions for life : Marriage Bond


God created gaps between fingers so that life partner comes and fills that gap by holding your hand forever. One should complement the other and Each partner must take the responsibility for building the relationship. Understanding plays the vital role in improving compatability. Also, It must be remembered, however, that there can be no authentic or enduring love without constant effort and readiness for sacrifice by both partners. The love, care and support makes it easy to adjust in. And when the marriage is successful and couple are happy together then they can bring the surprising rewards of staying together.

Married life begins.. !!

In childhood, Schools teach you maths, physics, bio, chem, english, hindi, geo, history and the rest of the pothas, but why don't they teach you "giving"?

Being useful to others is the most important subject to teach & learn..
It is very much required in life and marriage demands it more.

Also, losing your temper is foolish and ignoring your insult is SMART.
Never underestimate yourself and value your individuality.

Will share more such lessons when i`ll experience more :O

Loyalty





Marriage succeeds by being loyal, sympathetic, loving, caring and respecting each other. Good relationships meet in the middle. The most important trip one will likely take in life is meeting others half way. Couples can achieve far more by working together, rather than against them. Giving others a voice, and showing them that their ideas matter, will have a long-lasting impact on both them and their relationship.

Marriage Blues


It know it happens to everyone and now its my turn but
Since there is a long courtship before the marriage,
I am addressing all the concerns.
As they say - In any union there will be some friction,
Mine effort is to minimise, if not completely eliminate, it.
I have adopted a greater degree of transparency and enhanced communication.
Because For me biggest challenge is to get the integration chemistry right.

Become Your Spouse’s Best Friend

Your marriage is a living example of what it is like to be in a close relationship with you.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture that is very me-centered. Gail and I often talk to people who are frustrated with their spouses. Most of this stems from the fact that they are not getting what they think they need or what they think they should be getting.
I am not saying that it is wrong to give voice to your needs. I am saying that it is often an ineffective way to get them met, unless you first sow the seeds of giving and servanthood. (This is also good practice for being a leader in any sphere of life.)

If you are, then I would recommend three steps:
  1. Make a list of what you would want in a best-friend. If you were going to advertise on List for a best friend, what would the ad look like? Perhaps it might look like this:
    Wanted: Best Friend Prospective candidates will:
    • Make me feel good about being me.
    • Affirm my best qualities (especially when I am feeling insecure)
    • Call out the best in me, and hold me accountable to the best version of myself.
    • Listen without judging or trying to fix me.
    • Give me the benefit of the doubt.
    • Extend grace to me when I am grumpy or having a bad day.
    • Remember my birthday, favorite foods, music, and art.
    • Know my story and love me regardless.
    • Spend time with me, just because they enjoy my company.
    • Speak well of me when I am not present.
    • Serve me with a joyful spirit and without complaining.
    • Speak the truth to me when no one else will.
    • Never shame me, diminish me, or make me feel small.
    • Become excited about what I am excited about.
    • Celebrate my wins!
  2. Now become that person for your spouse. That’s right. Turn the table. Make this a list of the kind of friend you will become. I can promise you this: anyone who does half of these kinds of things will have more friends than he or she knows what to do with. But what if you focused this effort on your spouse? Think of the possibilities.
  3. Keep sowing the seeds, until the relationship blossoms. How long will it take to create this kind of relationship? It all depends on where you are starting. For some, it might be several months. For others, it might take years. Friendships are like gardens; they must be cultivated. The key is to be consistent and persistent—without expectations.
This is really nothing more than the application of the Golden Rule to marriage: “Do to others what you would want them to do to you”.
If couples would invest in one another like I am suggesting, the divorce rate would plummet. Romance is important. Sex is too. But a solid friendship is the foundation of everything else.

Heer Ranjha



Heer was an extremely beautiful woman born in a wealthy family "Sayyal". Ranjha (Teedo) was the youngest of four brothers, after a confrontation with his brothers, Ranjha left home and travels around and comes to Heer�s village, where he found his love, Heer, who offered him a job to take care of there cattle. Having met Ranjha, Heer became mesmerised by the way Ranjha played the flute (Wanjli) and eventually fell in love with him. They would meet each other secrectly for many years until they were caught by her jealous uncle "Kaido" and parents (Chuchak & Malki). Heer was forced to married to another man "Saida Khera", with the full permission of "Mullah" (priest), who was well-payed by Kaido.

Ranjha was left broken hearted and left to walk the quiet villages on his own until eventually met a Jogi (devoted beleiver in God). Having entering Gorak's Tilla (Shrine) Ranjha could only see his departed lover and being emotionally scared he voluntarally became a Jogi. Reciting the name of the Lord "Allakh Naranjjan" on his travels around the Punjab he found the village, where he was reunited with Heer. They escaped (also with Saida Khera�s sister "Sehti", who was in love with "Murad Baluch" - an another famous love story of Punjabi Culture) but was caught by Maharajah�s police. Maharajah punished him to jail but same night whole city was in flames. Maharajah freed Ranjha and permitted him to marry with Heer.

They came back to Heer's Village, where Heer�s parents agreed to their marriage. On the wedding day, Heer's jealous uncle, "Kaido" poisoned her so the wedding wouldn't take place. Having heard the news Ranjha rushed to aid Heer but was too late as she died. Ranjha becoming broken hearted once again and died on her grave.

Romeo Juliet




The play of William Shakespeare begins with a large fight between the Capulets and the Montagues, two prestigious families in Verona, Italy. These families have been fighting for quite some time, and the Prince declares that their next public brawl will be punished by death. When the fight is over, Romeo’s cousin Benvolio tries to cheer him of his melancholy. Romeo reveals that he is in love with a woman named Rosaline, but she has chosen to live a life of chastity. Romeo and Benvolio are accidentally invited to their enemy’s party; Benvolio convinces Romeo to go.
At the party, Romeo locks eyes with a young woman named Juliet. They instantly fall in love, but they do not realize that their families are mortal enemies. When they realize each other’s identities, they are devastated, but they cannot help the way that they feel. Romeo sneaks into Juliet’s yard after the party and proclaims his love for her. She returns his sentiments and the two decide to marry. The next day, Romeo and Juliet are married by Friar Lawrence; an event witnessed by Juliet’s Nurse and Romeo’s loyal servant, Balthasar. They plan to meet in Juliet’s chambers that night.
Romeo visits his best friend Mercutio and his cousin Benvolio but his good mood is curtailed. Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt, starts a verbal quarrel with Romeo, which soon turns into a duel with Mercutio. Romeo tries to stop the fight but it is too late: Tybalt kills Mercutio. Romeo, enraged, retaliates by killing Tybalt. Once Romeo realizes the consequences of his actions, he hides at Friar Lawrence’s cell.
Friar Lawrence informs Romeo that he has been banished from Verona and will be killed if he stays. The Friar suggests Romeo spend the night with Juliet, then leave for Mantua in the morning. He tells Romeo that he will attempt to settle the Capulet and Montague dispute so Romeo can later return to a united family. Romeo takes his advice, spending one night with Juliet before fleeing Verona.
Juliet’s mother, completely unaware of her daughter's secret marriage to Romeo, informs Juliet that she will marry a man named Paris in a few days. Juliet, outraged, refuses to comply. Her parents tell her that she must marry Paris and the Nurse agrees with them. Juliet asks Friar Lawrence for advice, insisting she would rather die than marry Paris. Fr. Lawrence gives Juliet a potion which will make her appear dead and tells her to take it the night before the wedding. He promises to send word to Romeo - intending the two lovers be reunited in the Capulet vault.
Juliet drinks the potion and everybody assumes that she is dead — including Balthasar, who immediately tells Romeo. Friar Lawrence’s letter fails to reach Romeo, so he assumes that his wife is dead. He rushes to Juliet’s tomb and, in deep grief, drinks a vial of poison. Moments later, Juliet wakes to find Romeo dead and kills herself due to grief. Once the families discover what happened, they finally end their bitter feud. Thus the youngsters' deaths bring the families together. Romeo And Juliet is a true tragedy in the literary sense because the families gather sufficient self-knowledge to correct their behaviour but not until it is too late to save the situation.

7. Story of The Marriage (Shiv Puran)

Shiva called the seven great sages (saptarshis) and asked them to go to Himalaya as his messengers. The message was that he wished to marry Himalaya's daughter Parvati. Himalaya was delighted to see the sages and even more delighted to learn that Shiva wanted to marry Parvati. A date was fixed for the marriage.

The day of the marriage dawned. Gandharvas (singers of heaven) sang and apsara (dancers of heaven) danced. All the gods came to Kailasa to accompany Shiva on the procession. Himalaya had also got ready. He had built many gates in front of his house and had placed flags on them. The beauty of Himalaya's residence at that time is impossible to describe. When the procession arrived at the residence, Parvati's mother Menaka rushed out.

Let me see Shiva, she exclaimed. Let me see my son-in-law. My daughter Parvati has performed tapasya to obtain Shiva as a husband. He must be exceedingly handsome.

The first person Menaka saw was Vishvavasu, the king of the gandharvas. Vishvavasu was very handsome and, at first, Menaka thought that this was Shiva. But when she was told that this was only a singer who entertained Shiva, she thought that Shiva would be more handsome. Then her eyes fell down on the handsome Kubera, the god of wealth, and she thought that this had to be Shiva. Kubera was more attractive than Vishvavasu. But Menaka was told that this was not Shiva either. Then came Varuna, more attractive than Kubera. But this was not Menaka's son-in-law. Nor was her son-in-law the great god Yama, handsomer than Varuna. The handsome gods Indra, Surya and Chandra passed by. But Narada told Menaka that these were not Shiva, they were simply Shiva's servants.

Menaka's joy knew no bounds. If these were the servants, what was the master going to be like? She mistook Brahma, Vishnu and Brihaspati for Shiva, and each time Narada told her that she was wrong. Where then was Shiva? Finally Shiva came and Narada pointed him out to Menaka. At the sight of her son-in-law, Menaka fell unconscious.

Shiva was surrounded by ghosts on all sides. The faces were fierce, their complexions were dark and they made a tremendous racket. Shiva himself rode on bull. He had three eyes, five faces and ten arms. He was smeared with ashes and the moon adorned his forehead. He was dressed in a tiger's skin and a garland of skulls hung around his neck. No wonder Menaka fainted.

When she recovered, she began to lament. She scolded Himalaya, Narada and Parvati for her misfortune. Brahma, the other gods, and the sages tried to pacify Menaka. But to no avail.

I will not permit my daughter to be married to Shiva, Menaka said. I will give her poison instead. I will throw her into a well and kill her. I will chop her up into pieces with a weapon. I will hurl her into the sea. I will kill myself. I will get Parvati married to someone else. Not to Shiva. Parvit resolved, I shall not marry anyone other than Shiva. Is a jackal a fit replacement for a lion?

Vishnu then tried to pacify Menaka. But this did not succeed either. Fianlly Narada asked Shiva to display his beautiful form and Shiva obliged. This form is exhibited only to those who are very faithful to Shiva. Everyone was charmed by this beautiful form, even Menaka. His body shone like a thousand suns and a crown sparkled on his head. His clothes glittered and the lustre of his jewels put the stars to shame.

Menaka begged forgiveness for her foolishness and now there were no further obstacles to the marriage. Under Brahma's supervision, the marriage ceremony took place and Shiva and Parvati returned to Kailasa.

5. The Burning of the God of Love (Shiv Puran)

The gods decided to follow Brahma's advice. But how could it be ensured that Shiva and Parvati fell in love with each other? The king of the gods was Indra and the god of love was Kandarpa or Madana.

Indra summoned Kandarpa. You have to help us, said Indra. There is no other way out. Shiva is performing tapasya in the Himalayas. Parvati is also in the region. Make sure that the two fall in love. That is your job.

Kandarpa went to the place where Shiva was meditating. And as soon as the god of love appeared, the place took on the traits of a spring which was pernnial. Flowers bloomed and bees buzzed among the flowes. Cuckoos sang and fragant breezes started to waft throught the forest. Shiva tried to concentrate on his meditation. But he kept getting distracted.

While all this was going on, who should arrive there but Parvati? She was so beautiful that Shiva was smitten with love for her. Parvati also seemed to like Shiva.

But life is never simple. Shiva was, after all, Shiva. He realized that something was wrong. How could his meditation have been disturbed? How was it that the season seemed to be spring although it had no business to be spring? When Shiva glanced around, his eyes fell on Kandarpa who was hiding. He realized that it was Kandarpa who was responsible for all this mischief.

Shiva was angered. He had a third eye in the middle of his forehead. From this third eye flames sprouted and these flames burnt Kandarpa to ashes.

Kandarpa's wife was Rati. When Rati saw that her husband had been burnt to ashes, her grief knew no bounds. At first she lost consciousness. When she recovered, she lamented, Woe is me. What is going to happen to me? My husband, my love, where have you gone?

The gods and Rati sought out Shiva. They explained that it had been no fault of Kandarpa's. He had been asked to disturb Shiva's tapasya because of the Tarakasua problem. What would happen to Rati now?

Shiva replied, What has happened has happened. Nothing can be done about kandarpa now. He will eventually be born in the city of Dvaraka as Krishna's son Pradyumna. Rati will then be reuntied with Kandarpa. But till such time, let her simply wait.

The gods dispersed, still despondent. The matter of Shiva and Parvati's marriage had not progressed at all.

2 - Vidyeshvara Samhit,
3 - Kailasa Samhita,
4 - Sanatkumar Samhita,
5 - Vayaviya Samhita and

Jnana Samhita has Seventy-Eight Chapters,
Vidyeshvara Samhita Sixteen Chapters,

The Shiva Purana was recited by Vedavyasa's disciple Romaharshana, alternatively, Loma-harshana.

Romaharshana and The Other Sages

There were many sages who lived in a forest named naimisharanya. One day, these sages accosted Romaharshana and said, Romaharshana, you are blessed.

You have taught us a lot, but we are still not satisfied. You have had the fortune of studying under Vedavyasa and there is nothing that you do not know, past, present or future. Tell us about Shiva, we do not know very much about Shiva.

Romaharshana replied, I will relate to you that which you want to know and i am not going to make anything up. Many years ago, the sage Narada had wanted to find out about Shiva from his father, Brahma. Whatever Brahma had instructed his son. I am going to relate to you.

ShahRukh – Gauri: The Real Love Story



Shahrukh’s personal story can never be complete if one were not to talk about his romance and subsequent marriage with Gauri Chhiba, the daughter of retired Major Ramesh Chhiba, who had been born a vegetarian, was a Hindu Brahmin, and even had a temple within his house. Shahrukh being a Muslim in India where religion plays a key role while deciding the destiny of marital alliances, his marrying Gauri whom he had met in 1984 and eventually married in 1991 was indeed a tough task to accomplish.

The relationship between the two had been kept under wraps, and understandably so because Gauri’s parents would not have accepted it. Or, so it seemed for quite some time even while the twosome continued to meet up for six long years. The youngest in a Punjabi joint family with around 15 members, that Gauri would marry someone from her community was a foregone conclusion.

As for Shahrukh, he was willing to do anything to get her in his life, and it is said that he had entered Gauri’s household by posing as Abhimanyu during the girl’s birthdayparty. Abhimanyu…. Who? Yes! The character that Shahrukh had just started to play in the television serial Fauji that was being directed by the retired Lieutenant Colonel Raj Kapoor. The serial based on life in the army had made Shahrukh’s character really popular, and people around even said that he looked quite a bit like Dilip Kumar when he attended the birthday party in Gauri’s house that day.


The story of Shahrukh and Gauri’s relationship continued to add a new chapter with every passing day, and not all of them were bliss-laden as is the case with all human relationships. He was tremendously, in fact uncomfortably possessive about his lady love, so much that he would pick up a quarrel with her even if she let her hair down… literally. Finally, Gauri lost her cool and realized that she wanted to get away from the emotional bedlam in 1989. Without informing Shahrukh, she came down to Mumbai with her pals just a day after the former had celebrated her birthday in his room by decorating it the best way he could have and giving her lots of presents.

It was when Gauri had left for Mumbai that Cupid shot that one decisive arrow. Shahrukh just had gone to the city of dreams where his love had gone, and he ended up telling everything to his mother who was supportive and open-minded as always. Not only did she give her son Rs 10,000, she also advised him to go to Mumbai and get his love back. Shahrukh went there with his friends, and what followed sounds like a chapter straight out of fictional romantic folklore.

In the huge city, he and his friends kept looking for Gauri, and especially around the beachees because of his awareness that she was attracted to them in a big way. On the last day of his stay in Mumbai, since he had run short of financial fuel obviously, a cab guy advised him to go to a place called the Aksa Beach. From there, they ferried across to a place called Gorai and, after searching frantically, managed to track her down when she was standing in the water! Once the duo saw each other, they embraced each other and started crying. That was the defining moment in their relationship, because it was clear to both of them that they need to be with each other all their lives.

The problem the couple apprehended was because of Gauri’s set-up that consisted of simple people who were loyal to Indian social norms and did not question the tenets of tradition: which, in this case, implied that having a son-in-law who belonged to a different religion. This was a thought that would have never crossed their minds. But the time when the twosome had to marry had to surface some day or the other, and that did happen in 1991. The couple went ahead and put up a notice for a court marriage which, according to the Indian marital laws, meant that their names were displayed in front of the court in a notice for one long month.

Shahrukh and Gauri had to hide the notice from their parents, so they did the most obvious thing. They gave a address and said it was their own. The poor fellow had to suffer the repercussions. The parochial among the Hindus made a group and shouted in front of his house, and so did their Muslim counterpart. During those 30 days, the life of his friend was absolutely miserable, but then both Shahrukh and Gauri did not have a choice because they were really concerned about the latter’s parents.

Those 30 days proved to be critical for the young couple. They worked hard towards convincing Gauri’s parents, and eventually managed to make them see their point of view. That they would have a court marriage after the notice period got over was decided upon, and it was on August 26 that this ceremony was finally solemnised in the court. They also got married in keeping with Hindu and Muslim traditions seperately. In fact, it was Gauri who insisted that they should have a Muslim wedding too, and the roots of a secular family set-up had been firmly established be them.

This was the time when Shahrukh was making his initial forays in Bollywood, and among his forthcoming films were Deewana and Raju Bangaya Gentleman while he was shooting for Dil Aashna Hai as well.

Ye family KItni FANTASTIC hai

I saw one fantabulous play which I would like to share with you all..

Pradeep Jagirdar is rich, respected and happily married to his second wife, Sarla.
Manoj Jagirdar the eldest son who works in the family business is married to Jagriti.
Jagriti has a passion for speaking English, but ends up speaking hilariously wrong English.
Drishti, the only daughter is cock eyed and wears thick glasses.
Rahul the youngest son is a pampered child, which makes him arrogant, impatient, carefree and rude.

The family does not appreciate Rahul's bad-mannered and discourteous behavior.
But Pradeep Jagirdar surprisingly supports a son who gives a damn about the world and thinks of himself
as superior to all. Pradeep Jagirdar protects Rahul from the world and the family in all situations.
He grants everything Rahul demands, even if the demand is most unreasonable.

One day an old friend of Pradeep Jagirdar came to meet from Village. He was poor fellow so he insulted him.
He cursed him that one day he will regret and come to him when he realised his mistake.

Rahul`s mother arranged one meeting for Rahul`s marriage but he act rude. Girl reciprocate by insulting him.
Drishti said that she is in love with one guy but Pradeep Jagirdar didn`t entertain her as he was not of their standard.
Jagriti wants to go out with her husband on holidays but Pradeep Jagirdar didn`t let them as Manoj has to handle the office.
Sarla tries to convince Rahul and Pradeep Jagirdar both that they are doing wrong but all in vain.

Sarla calls Drishti`s boyfriend and his father to talk and found out that he is the son of same old friend of Pradeep jagirdar.
Pradeep Jagirdar rejected his proposal completely and denies the acceptance of her daughter`s love marriage.

But Sarla, Manoj, Jagriti and Drishti all decided that if
Pradeep only cares for Rahul and Rahul cares for nobody then they all will leave the house.

Now Pradeep Jagirdar panicked of loosing everyone and broke down.
He confessed in fron of evreyone that he was fulfilling all wishes of Rahul because he has some unknown disease
and won`t live longer than 1 or 2 months. He only knows about this and don`t want to tell this to anybody as they will start crying.

He begged in fron of evryone to not disclose this fact to Rahul as he don`t want him die before actual death.
Full family decided that they will fulfill all the wishes of Rahul.

Next day is Rahul`s birthday. They planned to celebrate it but all of a sudden Rahul
demanded for his money in the Pradeep Jagirdar`s property and assets. Everyone was shocked but agreed to do so for his happiness.

Drishti ran away from home and marries her love.
Rahul also ran away with the girl who rejected him for marriage.

and one news came that Rahul killed the guy whom the girl he had rejected is going to marry.

Then the family is in a BIG EMOTIONAL cRISIS.
This is the Climax.

Everyone is searching for Rahul. In the mean time Drishti came back with her husband and
and Pradeep Jagirdar sorted out issues with his old friend too.

Whole family is trying hard to find him but can`t. Here comes Rahul after marrying that girl.
NOw the question is WHY and he has to give answer

CONFESSION BEGINS..

1. He said knows about his disease and dont want anybody else to know.
2. He is behaving rude because he want to detach from everybody in the family slowly.
3. He asked for money becuase he wanted to donate for the research of medical science so that such
kind of disease can be cured in future.
4. He send some money to the poor friend of Pradeep Jagirdar and convinced Drishti`s boyfriend to run
away and marry his sister.
5. He marries that girl because that girl is preganant with his boyfriend/fiancee who ditched her
and her life will be spoiled by society.
6. He ran away with that girl because his fiancee got killed by her accidently and he took whole
blame on himself as he is going to die soon only.
7. He made his will in which he has donated his money to the needy and his eyes to her sister,
body parts for medical research,asked her bhabhi to get preganant so that he can come back in
this loving family once again after his death.

He made his Death beautiful by decorating it with good deeds.

Life Before Wedding (LBW)

Telugu Cinema has come up with very good realistic movie. I liked it and would like to share it if you
have not seen it. So here it goes.


The film is all about the ever-changing relationships that influence the
lives of different people.


The film has two parallel stories which chronicle the lives of these six characters
and how their relationships change over a period of time.
The film revolves around two stories, six main characters and their journey
make certain decisions that will set to change their lives irrevocably.


Story one : Rishi (Siddhu) and Jai (Abhijeet) are good friends living in Hyderabad.
While Rishi is a little temperamental and hyperactive, Jai is quite cool and like the saying opposite
poles attract, they become good friends. They come across Anu (Nishanti Evani).
Anu is a systematic, principled girl and is quite reserved girl. She does not
entertain Rishi, who attempts to flirt her. This helps Jai to get close to Anu
and develop friendship, which turns into love finally. While this triangular
love story runs in India. Jai got an offer to work abroad. He went away for work but
Anu`s parents started finding good match for her marriage.
Anu asked Jai to come and marry her but he got so busy in her work that coudln`t
come back to India to marry Anu. Finally Anu`s marriage fixed to some other guy.
He came in the end just before one hour left in marriage and asked to stop the marriage
but in vain. He lost Anu and regrets about it.


Story two : Another love story runs parallel in Dallas,U.S.A. Rajesh (Rohan) and Radhika (Chinmayi)
are also good friends. Once Radhika feels like she was in love with Rajesh and
proposes him. However, Rajesh is under the impression that theirs is a deep
friendship and rejected her offer. Now, Varun (Asif Tej), an Indian-born American
enters their lives. Varun develop friendship with Radhika which turns into love
and they both get married. Now Rajesh aslo realised her love for Radhika but its
too late and he lost Radhinka and regrets about it.

BUT BUT BUT

In a twist of fate, the events change dramatically and as situations
unfold between the characters, they stand at crossroads where future is staring in
their faces with changes irreversible!

DESTINY has its own plans.
In The END : Rajesh and Anu both who lost their love and get married by chance.

NO POINTING FINGERS

A man asked his father-in-law, "Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?"
The father-in-law answered in a smile, "Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you."

We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point the finger at. This is the start of a war. We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves.

If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too.
