What Is Success...

It was pouring that evening when we brought our dad back home from the hospital - relieved that the nightmare is past at last. Our dad had undergone a surgery a few weeks back and recovered a little from the operation -

Invited To A Formal Dinner Party?

Posted in

Are you invited to a formal dinner party? But you are not sure of what to wear, or how to behave without choking? Maybe these tips will help answer your questions.
First, we have to know the difference between the casual get together and a formal dinner party. A formal party follows decorum that a guest should follow. So if you are invited to a formal dinner, be sure not to be the odd man out by not following the etiquettes.

Live - In Relationships...Is It Testing The Waters Before Plunge

The custom of Live-in relationship is very old in India, wherein zamindars and Nawabs not only had many wives but quite a few live in-women. In those times it was not considered immoral to have a live-in relationship.
Post Independance, monogamous marriages became the in-thing. India still remains a conservative society where the institution of marriage is considered sacred. Plus chastity on the part of a woman is highly rated. The woman with a history of pre marital relations with a man will have less chances of getting married in the future.

The Empty Nest

It is my Sunday ritual to call up my parents back home in India. I can clearly hear the joy in their voice and know how eagerly they are waiting for my call. Its been nearly a decade since my parents have been staying alone, since all three of us (my 2 sisters and me) have been married and moved away from our hometown. In the beginning it was for studies and then better job prospects that we had to leave our Family home.

Where Is All The China

Posted in

This post has got nothing to do with the country China. Its actually a 'kvetch' disguised as a Blog post.

Last weekend, 'A' and I were invited to a Indian Couples place for dinner. I had never met them and 'A' just knew the hubby in passing. Living in Lancaster we are always dying for a social get together as we don't know many people in this town.

Till Death Do Us Part

In spite of the title sounding so ominous most of you must have guessed. I am talking about marriage and that too specifically arranged marriages. Recently, a few of my friends have decided to venture on this well trodden path and the experiences that they shared with me prompted me into putting this post.

Tu Cheez Badi Hain Mast!

Don't get thrown off by the title of the post...It isn't about Raveena Tandon..the forgotten Bollywood Actress...Its about A-la Maid or Au-pair.
If you still haven't figured it out, let me elaborate. Its about Maids and Domestic Helpers in India (Calling them servants is considered politically incorrect in today's world).

If Tomorrow Never Comes...

Throughout the day, I kept wondering why the day was passing by so uneventfully. I went through the usual rigmarole of work, coffee breaks, more work, lunch, chit-chat with friends, still more work, and then deciding that it was time to leave.

The Games We Played

I really pity today's generation of kids who really don't know what its like to go out and play with kids your own age.They lack social skills and most of them are either glued to the 'Idiot Box' or the computer to even explore their surroundings or discover new games.
