Today, I’m going to share something from my life with you. But before that, let me say that we all have a different philosophy of life, but at the end of the day, life is all about struggle. By the time we are on our deathbeds, life should show a transformation of the self.
Now, a father is every daughter’s hero, but for me he is a symbol of ‘power’. But I am afraid to share anything with my parents, because I feel they don’t understand me, and try to control my life in many ways.
I have a teacher in my college, and she is like a goddess – really, so calm, soothing. I bet if anyone met her, she would unconsciously change the way that person thought, at least a bit.
So when I let it slip in front of my mumma that I share my views, my problems with my teacher, she was furious. Now, my mumma is an intensely anxious person, and she immediately got angry, asking me, “Why do you share things with your teacher? And what do you share with her?”
My disappointment is because my mother was worried that I was sharing my secrets and problems with my teacher, and not that I had problems. She immediately said, “Ab tu dekh, aaj Papa ko bataungi. Ke aisa zulm karte hain tujhpe, jo tu teacher ko batati hain!” (Now just you see, I’ll tell your father today. That we torture you so much that you go and tell your teacher!)
Maybe I’m thinking too much. May be my understanding of my mumma is wrong. But if I am wrong, please correct me, not get angry with me! l don’t want this breakdown coming from my own loved ones.
I just want to confess to all that if you really want to love your family, keep in mind that don’t love them because they are your family, don’t give yourself a reason to love .
Love for anybody either your family or any other outsider doesn’t need any justification.

"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
Many Indian elderly are firm believers in enslaving a daughter-in-law in the name of tradition which is actually a tradition of oppression and not of religious faith.
Albeit, the popular culture has interpreted scriptures as suggesting that Kanyadaan is the supreme form of donation given to someone, the connotation that the word donation alludes to definitely objectifies the girl.
Even when the exegesis justify the act of giving away the daughter, considering it a ritual to mark the initiation of the daughter into her husband’s gotra and her becoming the part of his family tree.
There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
