Over the years our dictionaries have seen a multiple fold increase in the number of words that have been introduced for use. But one word which I am not sure we would find in any dictionary but have been using or hearing constantly these days is “Super ” Mom.
What is or rather who is Super Mom? Can an adjective define or distinguish one mother from another? How different is this Super Mom from an ordinary mother?
Being a mother of two myself I constantly try to evaluate myself as a mother. Am I doing enough for my kids, am I going that extra mile for my kids? In terms of their nutrition, health, behaviour, overall development are my kids doing well and par with kids of their age? And in this process I see my counterparts as well. Many of them are working mothers. At this…

What’s Freedom? Probably not setting up the alarm in the night and not worrying about the clock ticking in the morning; stuffing up your favourite dishes without giving a damn to calories or pounds; spending without having to think twice about the bank balance and so on. But these things are too trivial, in fact insignificant to define a deep and profound concept of “Freedom”.
Freedom is a subjective concept with varied dimensions – physical, emotional, spiritual.
We are all born free and moving in this world freely. That’s the physical dimension of freedom we are talking about. The era of slavery is gone so physical bondage is done away with. This is superficial in every possible sense we can think of because that’s not absolute. At every step we are bound by many restrictions by the rules and laws framed by family, society, authorities. And since human is…

I don’t watch serials, those heavy make ups, constant conspiracies and over the top acting is not my cup of tea. I don’t watch reality shows either because nothing is real about them to be true and the jarring suspense music to reveal the eliminations or winners is a big let down. But anyways who cares about people like me 😁. To put it simple and straight, apart from few good movies to catch up and my favourite Mahabharata (Indian mythological drama) idiot box in my home doesn’t serve much.
So where do I get my daily dose of entertainment from, but obvious YouTube. I binge on YouTube. I don’t stick to a particular genre, taste changes according to my mood, mood in the family and mood of the country 😂. But the interesting part is that more than the videos I have kind of fetish to read the comments…

Freedom of speech is under peril and suppression is on the rise. This has been a constant fabrication for centuries. But today’s risk is not only being incited by tyrants and sovereigns, as was the case in the past. Rather, it is being stoked up by the very people who are thought to protect this principle: democratically elected bureaucrats, artists, and journalists.
Article 19 of Human Rights declares that “everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression”. Yet, this right is unquestionably not certain because of the basic components of language.
Words, sentences and passages release impacts. They provoke sentiments in audiences and users. Language is never unbiased.
But far too often it is the case that analysts and diplomats give rise to unrealistic and absurd social aspects through the means of their platforms. They post, tweet and share to turn the tide of public opinion…

Arnold Schwarzenegger, did it I spell it right? For once, Yes. So he became my first favourite Hollywood star, why? Because he was The Terminator, the perfect Cyborg from future we all wanted to see, one that would be perfect, that what do things beyond human capabilities, that would answer most complicated questions, follow orders without question and kill without remorse. Yeah, I too cried in the end scene when he goes down the molten lava pit, but before that, he said something unforgettable, “I now know why you cry, but it is something I can never do.”and we knew that even though we love everything about a robot, it can never simulate human emotions and replace humans.
Who doesn’t love Technology? Everything from our phones to our fridge is getting smarter by the day, the brighter, the better. We enjoy the privilege, it eases our workload, our stress…
