Mandira shares her experiences on having babies & post Partum Blues


You thought you’d be the happiest person in the world when you had a baby, one of the most important and awaited events in your life. You fantasised about this moment since you got married, or maybe even since your teenage years? So why are you so down and upset often? You are not alone! More than eighty percent women suffer mood disturbances after  pregnancy  ("postpartum").

Long Distance Relationships

Living Apart & Loving Apart

The weather, the  location, the language , the skin color might be different , but underneath it all , we share similar emotions. I am in Valencia, Spain. Carlos has parted with his girlfriend in Rio. “It was the distance that did us in” he admits melancholically.

I too had to deal with a long distance relationship once, and it is a challenge. Once insecurity and jealousy kick in- composure is a distant dream. However hard you try  you do have misgivings and may loose confidence in your partner occasionally with the miles between you.

Nagging for attention By Nisha JamVwal

Another night at dinner alone, and every time Natasha brings up this topic, her husband Zain, already on a short fuse with piles of work, ambitions and stress snaps and feels she’s just adding to his already full and pouring plate of “issues”.
The suggestion that they go to the movies and dinner meets with a look like she was suggesting he take her to Tahiti.

Just this morning she messaged me saying he just wasn’t the man she’d married. The one who’d made her feel like the cynosure of his universe, made her feel sexy, on top of the world.

The Grand Indian Wedding- Shah Rukh Khan Unplugged Part II

The Grand Indian Wedding Scene with Pinky & Sanjay Reddy; 
The Cavalcade moved forward...........
Can you conceive of an Indian wedding without the essential Bollywood brigade?  

The evening belonged to SRK!

Whoever may be your favourite Khan on screen, in person Shah Rukh holds you captive all the way to his impromptu classic Shah Rukh Khan fare, charming everyone with his artless , exuberant shenanigans. 

This one man show of humour , emotion , dance , drama and charisma while including the family and guests in it all- unfurls not only the love story of the couple that is to tie the knot the next evening - but also the two infrastructure giants who are to give their children away in marriage. 

I am amazed as I recognize the very sedate  bridegroom’s father performing with abandon the ‘Sajdah’.
