The recent crime story left me speechless, how can someone do this, how can? The news story goes as follows:
“Britain-based Shrien Dewani, has been accused of hiring a hit man to kill his wife on their honeymoon in South Africa and now he will be extradited there to face trial. Dewani, a British businessman, is alleged to have paid others to arrange and carry out the murder of his 28-year-old wife, Anni, who was found shot dead in an abandoned taxi in Cape Town’s deprived Gugulethu Township in November. The couple, both of Indian descent, had married in India two weeks before arriving in South Africa” .
The incident is bizarre and one of its own kind. But I am not here to discuss of what transpired between the husband and wife but my dilemma is with regard to the institution of marriage which is regarded as one of the most sacred and is revered so much especially in our country India.

Now that comes as yet another fantastic piece of research work for all those women who are coffee addicted. Women who drink two or more cups of coffee a day are less likely to get depressed, research suggests. The findings, published in Archives of Internal Medicine, come from a study of more than 50,000 US female nurses. The Harvard Medical School team tracked the health of the women over a decade from 1996 to 2006 and relied on questionnaires to record their coffee consumption. Just over 2,600 of the women developed depression over this time period.Compared with women who drank one cup of caffeinated coffee or less per week, those who consumed two to three cups per day had a 15% decreased risk of developing depression. Now isn’t that a good news friends, @younghopes we do believe coz it is just giving us one more reason to drink our coffee…and no one gonna stop us Hah… you can read the entire story here BBC
Today felt I would be beginning on a good note for my blog, with some beautiful pics and images to make it lively but before i could get hold of any thing really sweet this news caught hold of me: “Eight-year-old girl beaten to death by Dera baba in Amritsar”. And I felt…yet again girl dead? What could be the reason behind this rape, torture, harassment? So got to know on further reading that The girl was brought from Maharashtra about 10 months ago and was and held captive by the baba. She was beaten and tortured. Inspite of the fact that she told her story to the villagers but none paid heed to her and sent her back to the dera.So shameful that even in this case it was the girl only who was consoled and yet again sent back insted of any action being taken against the Dera Chief. This speaks volumes of our country’s preconcieved notions that ‘just sympathise with the girl’ and send her back. Isn’t it happening almost everywhere. Even so many newly weds too are sympathised and then sent back again to their inlaws house and later found dead! Here too no action was taken against the dera chief and hence the consequences. I really wonder why the price of girls is so low in our country, why they are just there, why they can’t have justice, why can’t we listen to them if they make complaints? Because had we been listening this surely wouldnt’ have been happening so often in our country. Are we really Listening to those unheard sobs of someone called as ‘GIRL’
What do you think on this issue, please do share with us friends, the matter is grim its time for action!
Women ruled the world and are ready to take on any challenge that comes their way, with grace and honour. But there’s just one challenge that they find hard to accept their twin responsibilities that of a working woman and a caring mother at home. It’s indeed not an easy task to balance both sides of their lives with much ease and without any guilt from within their ownselves.
Being a working woman perhaps is the toughest profession on this earth. It’s an everyday struggle to strike a balance between work and your family. The responsibility of the husband with regards to child’s care and upbringing increases manifold. The husband needs to be supportive enough to understand his wife’s responsibilities but if he isn’t, the problem for the working woman enhances all the more.
The children too are greater risk since they have to spend most of the time in the company of domestic help. They may even fall in bad company. And if this happens, the guilt will never ever go from the mind of the mother since the world will blame her and her alone. Personally too, the guilt will never leave her.
These days, many working mothers are overcome by the guilt factor. Hectic lifestyles, ambition, long work hours leave her with no time even to take care of her ownself. Thus, a number of health problems may arise depression too may occur. So, they need to be cautious while handling both their roles.
