I was sure as I entered the village school, the site of voting for two nearby villages, that I would be confused at the electoral ballot. Intuition, you can say. The village is not my native, the reasons are vague why I am holding the voting right from this place. The lines are in formation from as early as 7.00 p.m. Yes, you would be surprised that the voting has begun. The official at the desk was at ease randomly taking the voting slip, noting down the particulars and asking for signatures so as I was curious to follow a way was still not good enough. Finally, I reached the electronic ballot. Whoa! so this was the reason. There were around 15 signs of political parties, two of which are popular and rest are still in Punjab. I somehow remembered the sign of a party that is in alliance with the party I wanted to vote for and pressed the button by its sign. Who says democracy comes easy way.

dusky day...

The lake as it is stood beautiful without a reflection of clouds or sky, bounded by sitting platform which one reminds of comfort and invigorating view. Otherwise undulating with one so serene, from the uppermost platform the eye travels from this shore to last filled with hues. The poem has to be born and "For No…

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…
