Pricking Questions Women Are Asked

People are pressuring left and right for marriage?
Being asked of “when are you giving us the good news” constantly?
Nosy Aunties around??

Our societies have a lot to change. It is slowly changing, which is good. A lot of cultures have this problem but women are taking more of a stand. I love bringing up topics like these, as women can be traditional yet still take a stand on their lives. Some people refuse to change their mentality and instead are so tunneled visioned.

No matter what, it is painful to be asked this question, especially by strangers. Women need to be more empathetic towards each other and need to support when such things happen. I just wish that all women had the freedom to choose who and what they want in life rather than it being forced up on them. Give women the space and freedom to decide what's best for them.

We as women can do and be anything. But if you are not married and then have kids shortly after society looks at you as a failure. Why can’t a married woman get blessings like may you travel the world OR get successful OR stay healthy OR stuff life that? It is just plain rude, insensitive and also very sexist to ask women these questions. We as women can do and be anything. Maybe it's not just an Indian thing.

Magazines are always circling bumps around Jennifer Aniston's stomach and wondering if she is preggers. This is a worldwide madness, I suppose. Mainly because everyone is always looking at other people and wondering about their lives and curious about their private lives, that's just how most people are. Unfortunately we cannot control the way people think or what they say. We can control the way we react to this. It is going to happen WHEN and IF I want! Simple! Don't bog someone down for a piece of gossip! Just let HER be.

Do not take your own for granted and most definitely mind your own business! My thoughts are unless the woman makes a formal statement that she is pregnant you shouldn’t assume or start congratulating someone. I know a lot of women suffer from fertility issues and being hounded about having a child adds to an already stressful situation. People are more worried than you as to why you aren't married even when you are 26/27../30?!

And women need to unlearn the art of looking down upon other women. Let's make the world a better place. It's time to change the nosy mentality. If I spoke your mind, please be generous and share the post and comment your views on this, so that my and your voice reaches to maximum people and they should know that they must stop bothering about other's private affairs.

Lots of love from me!

    Love Trumps All! - Tale of Cultural Crossovers
Five friends, five religions, five inseparable interwoven stories of transformation and self-discovery on the global stage.

    The story’s timeline spans the Y2K opportunities during the late 90s to the current backdrop of US 2016 presidential election.

    Anant Joshi, a dreamer who chases the American dream during Y2K rush and leapfrogs from a small Indian town to start-up one of the hottest and innovative Silicon Valley ventures.

    Chris O’Brian, an energetic and creative high-tech sales leader from New York who is driven by his passion for life, creativity and making it big.

    Sameera Qureshi, a young gynecologist from Hyderabad attending her medical residency in California, trying to find love and her true human identity.

    Amy Cohen, a lively, articulate, compassionate pediatrician from Tel Aviv who is ready to ride on larger than life waves and build a legacy.

    Madhura Sharma, journalist and social worker from Mumbai driven by her nationalistic ideals and drive to help others.

    What happens when their paths intersect and blend amidst their divisions across nationality, religion, and ideals? 

    It is an interwoven story of these five unlikely friends, over two decades of tracing their paths and connecting their dots across the globe in Silicon Valley, New York, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kathmandu and Khamgaon (small-town India full of youth with stars-and-stripes in their eyes) in a world powered by immigration and ‘reverse immigration’.

    I am certain you will find it as an interesting read with fresh global perspectives and zesty cross-cultural romance in a gripping plot with a twist in the tail!
