Love, hope and the will to live... trees teach us so many simple lessons of life!
The world calls her “a Gulmohar tree”
A mere tree? No, she is a beautiful reverie!
My soul mate, my muse! Much more than what the world can see!
Holding up her green silk gown, she dances gracefully to the wind’s tune
She teases the sky and breaks into a giggle
Spiritedly, she does a tango with the moon.
Vivacious, yet so womanly and chaste
She stands, firmly grounded on her roots.
Savours every moment of life, never in haste.
Resplendent with flaming red blooms, she is the new bride in town
Her eyes are pregnant with her dreams, her hopes
Waves of emotions rise in her heart. New and unknown!
Many moons later, I met her again one winter
Destiny, man, social order! Whatever you name it, had cast its evil eye on her.
She stood bare and withered, notwithstanding their banter.
The sight was more than I could bear
Yet, I went my way
Alone, we fight our battles here.
The world had written her off, while I lingered on with hope
From a distance, fingers crossed, I watched
Gallantly, she walked the tightrope.
She persisted, I prayed. Yet recouping seemed a far-off cry
Invincible that she is, she sprang to life, by and by
The dogma that the world had about her, she did defy!
She is in full bloom again. Oh! What a view!
There’s a song in my heart and a tear in my eye;
whilst she does a jig crooning, “Life’s calling, where are you?”
This time I can’t help but, smile and salute
This ode is for her;

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.
