And it Healed!

They were waiting for their children to arrive to get a relief from the suffocating situation they were going through. Jaya and Prakash were in no mood to speak to each other as they were before. Both were feeling lonely and annoyed without the company of their children who were working far away. It’s their anniversary coming up and their children would be soon joining the celebrations. But the couple; only they knew how hard it would be to act as a happy couple in front of all though it’s to make their children believe. At least they would be happy seeing their parents together and happy.

That day, after attending the phone calls of their children they fought each other telling this and that. An angry Prakash accidently dropped the photo depicting their happy times which smashed to pieces. Both Jaya and Prakash rushed to it. Prakash felt sorry for what happened and he clasped Jaya’s hands and asked for pardon. That gentle touch did something magical.  Suddenly they were taken back to memories.

Prakash and Jaya spend most of their leisure hours in front of their TVs. Both have separate TVs so that they can change channels according to their tastes without bothering others. That day both were silent thinking about their lost love. They browsed through channels to channels to kill the time, sometimes not even realizing its just ads they were watching as if  seriously absorbed in some top story.  Lot many ads flashed on TV but, #BringBackTheTouch TV commercial of Parachute advanced body lotion caught their attention. It was because, that ad vividly conveyed what they were going through; the story of a touch that changed the life a couple. 

Jaya and Prakash thought about their life, their life before the dirty quarrel and the ego pulling them back from each other. They once again realized their love for each other which they thought had faded away forever. Love heals, yeah, sometimes as a lovely touch!

Colored in Blue

Blue was not my favorite color,
And I did dislike everything bluish,
Except the sky and the ocean.
You but adored the royal blue,
And by the time I started admiring it,
You were but lost somewhere in between,
And all I could treasure was those royal memories,
Of the sky blues and the ocean blues.

It's Mean

I get annoyed when I hear people talking things that are baseless about women. I recently heard some people mentioning their son who is 29 years old as too young and a lady who is 27 as way too old. How can this be justified? I keep thinking about this horrible situation where(people consider) man is young in all his ages, be it at 20s, 30s, 40s and even at 50s and a woman is old by her mid 20s. I had in an older post told about how people irritate me by making me conscious about my age by highlighting my gender. I am not speaking about those who are open minded among the zillions of people, but I am deeply disappointed by how the society treat woman,in general. 

Do you think that a woman in her mid 30s or 40s looks physically unattractive or mentally weak? How come someone be old or young by their gender? Whatever the gender be, a person becomes sharper and bolder with time. The physique and psyche depends on how it's treated and taken care of. It’s always better to put age to the bottom of any criteria and let the other factors determine the charm and charisma of a person. I remember having read author, Preeti Shenoy’s article on a similar topic, but about women and relationships. The article condemn the people's mindset telling, ” If a man falls in love with a woman much younger, he’s a sugar daddy who will protect her. If a woman falls for a younger man, she’s a wicked witch who got lucky.”

I think I should share it here. Here’s the link. Do read.

I love being a woman but sad by the fact that women and womanhood getting disregarded, discriminated and disrespected.
