Oh, the gloriousness of childhood. The memories of childhood!
Childhood full of climbing trees and eating fruit off them. Uncomplicated days and talking into the nights… Recollections, memories of another age, a different time!
The trees we climbed ,
recollections etched in the mind.
The smooth bark of the guava tree ,
fruits bitten by the naughty parakeets.
memories of another age, a different time.
Uncomplicated days and talking into the nights,
those passionate sibling fights,
the movies we saw and enjoyed.
The hot afternoons we chilled inside,
feasting on sweet mangoes , you and I.
The sudden downpour , the monsoon rain,
the heavenly smell of wet land,
as we pranced about drenched to the skin.
It’s a shared history our parents have left us behind.
The matchbox doll furniture , you made
was priceless in my eyes,
I kept aside the sofas , the chairs
the carpenter so meticulously had designed.
You came proudly for my races,
only to be embarrassed ,
for despite the many practices,
I struggled to keep up with the rest.
Cherished memories of a bygone time.
I teased you for your reserve,
you wondered at my nerve.
When I light-heartedly called Mom, Mother Hen.
I think you couldn’t believe your ears.
Do you remember that time ? Brother of mine.
We were so different and yet so alike.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
You do not have to be perfect. There’s no perfect daughter, perfect employee, perfect wife, or perfect mother. These are just labels created by society, for their convenience.
So here you are, just out of engineering college, having no clue why you pursued Electronics Engineering. Yes, I know, like many others your age, you too were persuaded by your parents to opt for engineering because it supposedly gets you a lucrative job.
Believe me, however strange this might sound, you’ll soon come to realize that a high paying job need not always make you happy. And there are a myriad courses and career options out there, you should definitely consider something that’ll make you look forward to go to work every day.
