‘Oh No, Your Daughter Only Plays With

‘Oh No, Your Daughter Only Plays With Boys!’

"Ma'm, Lavanya only plays with the boys in the bus, never with the girls," complained the visibly distressed attendant. "What is the problem with that?" I asked her. Lavanya, by the way, is my six-yea...

The Saving Grace Of The Stanford Sex Assault

The Saving Grace Of The Stanford Sex Assault Case

Much has been written and said about the Stanford sexual assault case, in which the attacker got off with a light sentence. What stood out in this whole incident, however, was the grit of the girl. The fact that she decided to let her ordeal be known to the public via a powerful letter. That she had the support of her family and society in doing so.

Are You A Pigeon Or A

Are You A Pigeon Or A Parrot?

While a pigeon poses patiently for hours (it really does), looks into your camera (even into your eyes sometimes) and does not object to its personal bubble being invaded, a parrot is almost never available for you. It does not let you come close, it does not pose, it gets really offended even if you direct a lens towards it...

Reconnecting With Pakistan Through Stories And Songs

Khajuraho Beyond The Erotica

For generations the Chandela kings added to the temples of Khajuraho -- each structure more magnificent than the other -- until the fall of the dynasty. With the passage of time, the temples were buried under thick forests and remained lost for 500 years until a British officer stumbled across them in the 19th century. And now here we are, ready to make our own discoveries.

Why I'm Not Sending My Kids To Classes Or Camps This Winter Vacation

I dread vacations, I really do. And, I think, almost every mother does. I order books, I buy crayons and colour pencils and paints. I pull out all the birthday gifts that I have successfully stowed away for months. And yet, when the vacations begin, I find myself terribly ill-equipped to handle the girls. Perhaps that is why, no sooner than the holidays start, most mothers, like me, want to pack the children off to some camp or the other.
