If wishes came true what will you wish for? Here is what you have said in our #TuesdayTalkies segment.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” — George Bernard Shaw
‘Do wishes come true?‘ — a question that has intrigued the human mind since time immemorial. Whether it’s wishing upon a shooting star; or making a wish at the stroke of 11:11; or even wishing on a full moon night, humans have always desired a little bit of magic in their lives. So, it won’t be surprising to say that sometimes, if not always, we all have wished to own a magical lamp with which we could do a little bit of rub-a-dub-dub and a big blue ‘Genie‘ would ‘swoosh’ out, nod his head off to our wish and make it come true. A definite algorithm for making all our wishes come true! Sounds great, isn’t it!
At Women’s Web, we invite readers to share their thoughts on one interesting question that is picked by the team and posted on our Facebook page every Tuesday, calling it #TuesdayTalkies. We try picking questions that would interest readers and put them in their thoughts.

The question for this week was, “You will be granted one wish, what will you wish for?” Here are 9 best responses from our readers.

When Dylan came home, I was happy I had a little brother. But soon, strange incidents began happening. No one could explain the hideous things he did or why he did them!
“Nobody loves me!” he cried, as he was forced to sit in the car. Dylan was red with rage and tears covered his face.
“That is not true. We love you a lot. You will be away just for a short while and then we’ll get you back home”. Mother didn’t believe her own words. For the first time she wasn’t sad that he was leaving.
“Bahu, you are this family’s Mahalakshmi. If you wake up late, how will it bode auspicious for this house and hearth? Go, take a bath first, and help me in the kitchen."

Dealing with mid-life crisis might not be easy. But here are 6 ways to deal with it and sail smoothly from someone who has already done it.
We have read many a times about how our lives are divided into various stages of childhood, teenage years, early adulthood, late adulthood and old age. We believe that as we are journeying through these stages, not only do our bodies grow, but our mind, our intelligence matures too with age and experience. So, the logical conclusion would be that the older we get, the more mature and clear we should be. But does that happen?
Are there times when you feel like you are losing faith and control over the ‘logical’ part of your mind? Do you go through phases of almost insane illogical thoughts over which you seem to have no control? Does it scare you even more because you know that this ‘new you’ would not be acceptable to your family or to your society? Does it make you stop and wonder what is going on with you? Does it make you think that you don’t even know yourself anymore and wonder who the real you is and why are all these thoughts emerging all of a sudden, when in reality you probably have quite a nice life going on? Does it make you feel that there is ‘something’ out there for you which will add more meaning to your life, but you have no clue what that ‘something’ is? Does it make you think that, that ‘something’ better happen quick or else you are going to lose your mind?
The recent spate of child rapes and crimes against toddlers is appalling to say the least. Why isn't justice being served?
