"Relax honey, you too have a weekend!" Do you know the power of these magical words?
“Relax honey, you too have a weekend!” Do you know the power of these magical words?
When I am asleep, I wish to be woken up with a steaming hot cup of tea,
Or maybe when my sleep breaks, someone says, ‘Relax, Why did you wake up, it’s just three’
When I am bathing I wish the hot water from the shower flows down on me leisurely,
And when I rub the soap all over hurriedly, someone says, ‘Relax, It’s two minutes…barely!’
When I am hungry, I wish I am served my favourite fried rice or noodles,
And when I gulp it down in a jiffy, someone says, ‘Relax and relish every morsel!’
When I am exhausted, I wish to just sit back, put my legs up and look at the clear blue sky,
And when I spring up realizing it’s been too long on that chair, someone says, ‘Relax, bask in the moment and just close your eyes.’
When I am sick, I wish to get pampered day and night,
And when I feel guilty about being in bed all day, someone says, ‘Relax, you need rest, you are not a knight!’
When I am out on a vacation, I wish to enjoy every bit of it,
And when I worry if everything is packed for everyone or not, someone says, ‘Relax, just pack your stuff and don’t forget your skirt with a slit!’
When I am at a party, I wish to sing, dance, clink glasses and be carefree,
And when I am anxious about the unhealthy junk food my munchkin eats, someone says, ‘Relax, it is a party, you needn’t think about broccoli and green peas!’
Whenever I feel like, I wish I could go and hang out with my friends,
And when I am terrified as the clock strikes twelve, I receive a phone call, and someone says,’Relax, honey, you too have a weekend!’

No matter where one’s fandom lies, if one saw the clip of you visiting your son in jail, the sheer dignity would have one converted to 'being yours'!
I have done enough stuff in my journey making my son and husband often exclaim vexedly, ‘Aap Zara Sa Tham Jao Ji!’
But never in my dreams did I imagine that I would be writing an open crush-puff-piece at this stage of my life!
The female condom is the most empowering invention ever made for women who finally do not have to depend upon careless male partners.
Forget the female condom, the topic of the male condom itself is a taboo. Men find all kinds of ridiculous reasons to not use one. “I like it natural”, “I am not a baby, I know when to withdraw”, “Relax, nothing will happen!” “But when is your period?” are some of the excuses at the tip of their tongues.
With half (read dangerous) knowledge of the female body, all of them suddenly turn into biology experts!
This immature thought process coupled with the loss of erection at the time of application or even the mere mention of the condom makes a lot of men averse to the idea of safe sex. Of course, everything comes at a cost. And unfortunately, this so-called ‘natural’, intimate, no barrier sex comes at the cost of women’s physical and mental health.
