Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
No, domestic violence is never funny, whoever is at the receiving end. If you're making these memes, you're probably not that funny either.

Over the last week, I see memes and posts about women hitting men going around and about “how hilarious” it is to get hit by your wife. There are two ways to look at this and both bother me to no end.
Just one of the many not funny memes floating around on Facebook
The first way (and I don’t regret saying it) is that these are again nonsensical ways to create the stereotypical images of the MONSTER WOMAN. Once you’re married, life is over because that lady is going to anyway make your life miserable.
Another is that these reinforce the idea that men need to wear this mask that says “I am always strong” and “Nothing can affect me.”
If you think a woman hitting a man is funny, think again. I’ve been an unfortunate witness to such abuse and have also seen the man not even defend himself because it is “wrong” to hit a woman. Any kind of abuse sends chills down your spine and this kind where you’re emotionally manipulated not even to defend yourself is terrible.
The next time you want to “laugh” or “brush it off” because…what kind of a man gets hit by his wife or a woman and stays silent? The answer is…it could be any kind of a man in any kind of abusive relationship.
And he needs help. Pretty much it. And no, this isn’t your invitation to “See, men get abused too..” Men get abused. That’s it.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
I came out of a dark trench in life. Here are a few things I learnt as I got on my feet again, and I want to share these with you.
This morning I was paying all the utility bills, like milk, electricity and newspapers. The bills came to around 5k. Maa asked if it’s too much. I brushed it off saying, this is absolutely fine.
Here is the thing. There was a time (not going into any details) when I wasn’t able to do it. Despite wanting to, so much. I have led sleepless nights worrying about money, during a specific period when I did not work. So, the ability to take care of your mother (my father is no more) though she has her own pension feels so good.
It’s not that your parents always need you. But just to be able to ease their lives is such a blessing.
