Hi Folks!
I am back.

Recently, read an article. A much circulated one, in social network.
Its all about, if we wish to be a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean. The conclusion says, we should be like coffee.

This has been in my mind for sometime now. Pondering more, here's what I felt.
This is my own personal interpretation - with all due respect to the writer, who first wrote the article.

Carrot goes in the hot water hard, comes out soft.
Egg goes in fragile and comes out hard.
Coffee bean goes into hot water, changes the water's nature, colour and taste. Makes it a totally different element altogether.
Everyone talks about the coffee. There's no water there anymore.

Is this what we want to be? I agree, we need to make our presence felt. A majestic, worthy impression at that.
We should be a great influence, make Change happen, as that's the only one which is constant.

At the same time, why look to change the other person, be it your better half or superior at office or your own kid or a dear friend. Every person, has the right to retain his or her individuality isn't it??

If not for the water, there wouldnt be a coffee. Even for an instant coffee, we need hot water.
Water adapts to the change so graciously and gracefully. It acts like a catalyst in many a worldly changes.

Why not be like water. Be pliable, compassionate. Compromise, but not without a reason. Be a catalyst in someone's life. Make the better of them and in the process, our self.

Water is so graceful, like I said. It takes the colour, shape, size of the vessel. It gives in, while boiling and freezing. Beyond both points, it becomes a whole new element, but still, water is in there. It proves that its inevitable.
We dont stop using it, just because its frozen or boiling.

More so, water is the only connecting source between the sky and earth. Its never gone and out. What goes up comes back to earth as rain. Filling the water bodies, it goes up again to form clouds only to come back to us.
What a beautiful example, of what life is all about.
If theories are to be believed, isn't this, the life cycle and Darvin's theory all about...

I wish, I could be a cool splash of water on someone, who has had a long day.
A drizzle, on a playful child
A sudden splash of rain, to surprise someone.
A stream, washing away, those long travelled, pained feet.
A cool glass, to quench the thirsty.

Now, do I hear the raindrops in my balcony?? Let me go.
See you soon guys... Adios.

Why does it happen...

"Man deserts wife after she ‘fails’ caste panchayat’s virginity test??"

Sounds crazy isnt it?
Makes you ask "is he out of it?"
Its pathetic to know that its the whole society and not just this individual, which has gone crazy.

Yes, you sure can take this incident and the person as a slice of what today's Indian society is all about.

I am being mean when I say this... I know
I feel sorry I had to say this. In reality it is so bad.

The young girl, all of 20, is put into such shame by the barbaric act and its repercussions. 
Notwithstanding, the so called Panchayat wants to parade her naked throwing hot flour balls on her to see if she can bear it. 
This is how she gets to prove she is a virgin. 
All this because she didnt bleed on her nuptials. Sic, people.
She is qualified to join the Police dept, but she is kept under house arrest by her own father in order to prevent her from lodging a complaint.

In the present century where medical technology is touching greater heights than our foreign counterparts, isnt this a shameful allegation?

Is it a punishment or the so called law holders are trying to satiate their perverted inner self?

From Sita, Anusuya times we have only heard of female being put thru all types of tests. As bad as the Agnipariksha to this day's virginity test.

In the name of society what more, what else, how much more and how longer??

Arnt we the society? Isnt every woman a part of the so called society?
If a man cannot safeguard the interest of the woman who has given him her heart and soul, how are we to believe in him.

And, all  the blah blah about the society... who forms the society, who gave them the right to say whats wrong and what is right?

Who gave them the rights to make convenient rules and regulations and naming them as social norms, culture, prestige and family honour?

If Maharashtra should be shameful of such act of coward, down south we should be ashamed of the honour killings.

If love is blind, so are the families of the two in wed lock.
They are blind with superstitions
They are blind with false honour of the family name and their prestige
They are so blind that they cannot see their own child's happiness.

In 2012 whole world was in shock and went numb in mourning over Nirbhaya incident...
The poor girl was glorified, an act was made by Indian Government to stop such gory incidents.
And... did it really stop? arnt we hearing a handful of such cases every week?

Rape, victimization, injustice... Is the government and the hands of law so stunted that they cant reach these lecherous criminals?
How long are we going to read, hear and watch such incidents with dismay with folded hands?

We find time to share jokes, absurd comedy clips and trivia in the social network.
Let's share these incidents of inhumane act. 
Its not just the pen which is mightier than sword, our goodwill, the social network and such courage to stand up against injustice is much more mightier than any sword that was made in the world.
