Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
I have to confess – I ve never really celebrated Valentine s Day; never exchanged gifts with a boyfriend, never gone out for an overpriced candle-light dinner. In recent years, the fact that the hubby s birthday falls tomorrow makes it even more irrelevant to us – we d rather wait for the birthday to celebrate!
I don t actually mind the concept; in fact, I think it is a rather sweet thing to remember and express your love and not necessarily only for a boyfriend/spouse. After all, although we say, why do you need one day for love etc, the fact is that most of us express our love far too rarely. Of course, I don t hold that you have to prove your love with expensive gifts or that a romantic dinner is a must .
Anyways, given all the hoopla over L-O-V-E, I thought it would be interesting to do a slightly different contest at Women s Web, so here it is – the What Love Isn t contest over at Facebook. What you have to do, is tell the world what love Isn t – and if your answers are any good, you could win one of these two fun Valentine s Day mugs from Chumbak! (max of 3 entries per person and ask your friends to vote for you )
Do participate! Have fun and a lovely Valentine s Day to you and yours

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
