Success of Sindhu – social media

Watching Sindhu fight till the last minute showed the real spirit of her. While the whole world applauded and respected  the glorious success in the defeat (i wouldn’t call it a defeat, if it were for me) , a lot of sexist comments started swarming over .

As soon as the match ended , while the whole nation celebrated her, there were some disturbing statements going around. They are disturbing to me because even in the success,the focus is being shifted to irrelevant things in media.

I saw an article on xyz site which stated people are busy searching for her caste and goes ahead to talk about how sad it is etc. Firstly , this is something that shouldn’t be a piece of news to write an article about. The focus is being shifted from success and sports to mere gossip here, which I didn’t appreciate and am sure many others would agree with me on this.   < I don’t want to name the site or provide a link to the site because , I don’t want people reading it even by mistake.>

There are various jokes going around about how women , apart from getting vegetables also have to now get medals now , how women are succeeding because men started coaching and how wife is taunting her husband using this etc etc . While there are various variety of jokes going around and can be taken in light humour, it is making the success more of a new thing to gossip about and create jokes about rather than adding real value to the story.

There are always two sides to any story ;Even here I am not sure if I should be happy sports is coming into the lime-light or if I should be sad even sports fell prey to the internet sexist jokes and memes.

In any case , regardless of the gender , it’s a proud moment for India to see such brilliant performances .  While the story of Sindhu is being heard for good , there are many unheard ;Every single person who participated in Olympics this year strived his/her best and is equally glorious in our eyes.

Happy to see great changes happening in 2016 and looking forward to seeing more 🙂

Here’s the link to all the Indian participants of Rio Olympics  this year :

No Barriers 

At the airport , saw a Japanese mother of two naughty boys .. A 2 year old and a 7 year old I guess. . And there was an Indian mother of two daughters almost matching their age.. While the younger one is a lil over 3 years. 

 Even though they don’t know each other’s language , I saw excitement in the faces of those boys when they see these girls. Instantly they started talking to each other in whatever language they know  and with gestures. It’s so amazing to watch kids connect without any barriers of language ,sex , religion whatsover. 

 While I would have been a lil shy to talk to anyone whom I absolutely cannot communicate with in a common language , these kids reminded me of how I was in my childhood before the  ” maturity” as people call took over me . I should be free like them .. With no worries , no care for what people think… Just do what u feel like.. It was beautiful to watch these kids communicate me play along.

 What an amazing way to start a trip to a foreign land, energised and excited to face whatever life is going to throw at me.

  Love the vibe… Xoxo

After a long time back to blogging .. The rigorous work schedule was keeping me away from my hobbies for a while…

On the Independence day of our country I decided to give independence to myself from Work stuff alone…. to give time for myself and my interests…

Though I am happy for the holiday I miss out the celebrations we used to have at schools…

The flag hoisting .. Saluting our national flag and feeling proud…The dance performances, the March past practices , the patriotic songs sung by us..the chocolates and the drill..

The little flags pinned to our dress gave us the proud feeling of being an Indian.. the speeches we prepared used to enlighten us how Incredible India is…

I still remember the words of Nehru we used to sing .. “Into that heaven of freedom my father , Let my country awake..” The land of rich cultural heritage , diverse land forms , traditions , languages, religions and many more is filled with sounds of Jai Hind and Vandemataram today..

The National anthem  JANA GANA MANA echoes throughout India with heads high and patriotism in the hearts..

On this note.. A Happy Independence day to all the fellow Indians and  to Korea, Congo, Liechtenstein .
