Check out 16 Return-To-Work Programs In India For Ambitious Women Like You!
Dhoni is Captain Cool for sure. Only if we could have more like him around us; the walk down the road could be a pleasure. I wish for more men like him. Men who don’t make their mothers and sisters cringe miles away.
News went viral when the Indian ace cricketer stated that, “I don’t allow my boys to give maa-behen ki gaali.” Did you get it? Under his stewardship, none of the boys can use any foul language or swear words. Isn’t that incredible?
How many of us have gone to bed without hearing those beep beep words everywhere? Right from the precincts of the house to the ruthless roads outside; they are everywhere, dropped verbally. Amidst this, if a national team’s ex-captain condemns such profanity of language, then as a woman I feel like appreciating him profusely.
Now, these offensive words float around in our environs, all day. After popping out from an overtly agitated person’s mouth, they jump around from one eardrum to the other. Ever expanding their cult. They are not afflicted by the presence of children. They just go around like the Brazilian wave.
There are some foul words which go around in mild forms, but still, are a strong component of the everyday dialect. But then there are some which irk me the most; ones which inflicts awkwardness upon the respective mothers and sisters. These ones roll out audaciously from the pink cavern. What an irony; mother tongue rolling outrageous comments for the mothers and the sisters. You know, these cuss words are so well blended in the verbal exchange that even before one wakes to their literary meaning, they would have already caused some emotional damage. Some call it slang and some may call it just a habit. But all men reading, there are better slangs to use and there are better habits to acquire. Profanity under the garb of such venting-out doesn’t sell well.
Certain psychologists bat that sometimes people are so angry and frustrated that they spell out these foul words as a means of catharsis. All right! I get that, but what about when these people are happy and excited? They still pop them. I fathom no reason for that. It starts from the mind, but now it’s more about ‘habits’. Cuss words are prefixed, suffixed and infixed without making any change in the meaning of the sentence. Well, the only difference being that the sentence is now bedecked with obnoxious infusions. Infusion of close relations, who are not even a part of the conversation but their reference, makes the speaker look some sort of macho or cool.
In abusive families, young minds are tuned in on these from a very early age. They understand that these words make the male members look stronger and powerful. And, then there is no guessing on how tactfully they start to use these cuss words with the friends outside; at school or in the park.
Coming to the other point, why weren’t these foul words ever created for all the men in the world? Because overpowering and showing strength over weaker beings is an easy task. No one amongst them will have the courage to either create masculine fowl words or object to the existing one.
Reality television shows thrive on beep beep… Aggressive, young Captain lip syncs his catharsis on the field… Pent-up driver at traffic jams yells them at the top of his voice…Salesman screams with the infixed swears…Young boys at upscale bistro clap a high-five after exchanging their C’s, M’s and B’s…A rickshaw puller murmuring them while paddling over…A shopkeeper hurling them while admonishing the underaged helper at his store…
It’s an epidemic. Everywhere. If Dhoni has been the first man to object to this, then there are many who will follow soon. At least there is a beginning. Who knows, like for all other things, he may have a million followers for this too!

Half a decade ago marriage was a bargain between two famlies. Most of the women were married off to a man who was either well off or who could fend for his wife and family. Today the parameters of marriage have changed. Women no longer marry for the sake of economic security. Their expectations from marriage have changed in the course of years because of their changed status.
As women grew independent, their patterns of choosing partners have changed dramatically. Now women choose men who they feel can satiate their emotional as well as physical needs. Intimacy is no longer the physicality that happened between two people under the supervision of elders of the family for the sole purpose of procreation. Intimacy in today’s marriages involve understanding and fulfilling each other’s emotional as well as sexual needs.
So before you decide to hook up see if you know these five things about intimacy.
The recent Bold Care ad breaks some long standing taboos in Indian society about women's sexual pleasure and erectile dysfunction in men.
The co-owner of the new sexual health brand – Bold Care, Ranveer Singh, recently shared that he wants to focus at creating awareness amongst people about men’s sexual health and aims to provide a tangible solution to millions of people across the country. The new Bold Care ad which was dropped last week has taken the internet by storm. Netizens are ogling at the ad and cannot stop talking about it and how?
The Bold Care ad has created a buzz for multiple reasons. One, because of the unexpected collaboration between the A-list Bollywood actor and co-owner of the brand – Ranveer Singh and (wait for it… drumrolls please) the adult film star Johnny Sins.
People were not ready to see Johnny Sins in an Indian commercial ad and had their jaws dropped to the floor when they saw him dressed in a blue kurta and a golden coat and tie acting in a saas-bahu rip off. The internauts have claimed this unusual duo as the biggest crossover ever – bigger than Deadpool and Wolverine coming together! Second, the ad aims to normalise the stigma related to men’s sexual wellbeing and the ease with which it can be addressed.
