Sexual Harassment: Not Just About SexThe first time it happens, you are inclined to brush it out of your mind, just as someone has accidentally brushed against you at work while they are headed elsewhere. The second time, a niggling doubt begins to form, but you are still not fully convinced. By the third time, you have inwardly begun to cringe from the person who has been ‘accidentally’ touching you, and subsequently, you feel comfortable only when a biggish table or a broad corridor separates you from this person.
 
Sexual encounters in the workplace, or those encounters that border on the physical, and cause a vague discomfort, are a lot more common than people admit. “I have a perfectly friendly colleague who has this nasty habit of holding his crotch suddenly during some conversations in our break time,” says Srividya, working in a large BPO. “Its hard not to notice, and even harder not to speak to him about it. One of my girl colleagues was finding it so disturbing that she asked another male colleague of ours to point it out to him. God alone knows if he was doing it on purpose or just instinctively. But he has stopped after it was told to him.”

Lessons for marriageIsn’t it amazing how our fourteen -plus - three years of “education” ( that’s just the average) do not, in any form or manner, prepare us for the most important decision of our lives? We think…arts or science…engineering or medicine… computers or commerce? We explore our affinity with the sciences, with music, with so many subjects and approaches, all in order to get a qualification and perhaps a career.

And not a single school or college teaches us what to expect in a marriage. Yet, marriage is the most momentous change that can take place in a life. For a girl, it means giving up the home of her childhood and taking on another, unfamiliar one. To a boy it means taking on the responsibility of caring for and providing for one person. Marriage involves adapting to new cultures, lifestyles, even cuisines! And this incredible life-event comes without a course, a qualification or an instruction manual!

Myths About Magical Marriages-DemystifiedMarriage is probably one of the most important institutions in human society, as it signifies the bonding of two human beings in an everlasting bond of fellowship, in order to provide a safe and secure environment for the nurturing of the future generation. Hence, every society has its own concept of an ideal marriage (besides the common belief that the two people should be in love) and every married couple strives to attain this perfect picture. This often results in normal occurrences (like disappointment, hurt etc) which are very much a part of the process being considered as taboo. Hence, leave alone being discussed, they are not even acknowledged. The result is a drastic decline in the quality of marital life.

Most couples then reach a point where there are only two options (according to them):

1. Accept the present and decide to go along with it. (Most of the times this is the great sacrifice that they are willing to make for their children or families)

2. To break the bond and go their own separate ways.

Nutty about NailsHow many of us actually take notice of our nails as we go about our daily activities like washing clothes, cooking or ironing? Our hands are such an integral part of our lives that we cannot afford to ignore them. Besides, is there anyone who does not nurse the desire of possessing perfectly manicured beautiful hands? Beautiful hands are no longer wishful thinking for the beauty conscious. Shapely, healthy and well manicured nails enhance the look of beautiful hands. However, there is more to nail care than regular manicure. Taking good care of your nails will aid in complementing your wardrobe and contribute to your personal style.

These keratinous projections, though made up of dead cells are indicative of the physical health of the person. Pale nail colour suggests that the person may be suffering from iron deficiency. Small nail moons or lunule indicate weak metabolism. Nails becoming enlarged and rounded are linked to heart and lung disease. Therefore, the fist step in nail care is eating a healthy diet. What you eat is reflected in the health of your nails.

Storage and Belongings - What to keepMy friend was having a mini-breakdown because he was finally throwing away the cards given to him a few years ago by an old flame who had got married to someone else. Consigning the nearly eight or nine year old cards to the dustbin of history was proving too much for him, and I was busy for a full half hour consoling him on the phone. And yet, how could I pass judgement on him for excess sentimentality? Here I am, with report cards from the time I was in Class V, and the first ‘booties’ and little glass bangles worn by my first born, my daughter, now close to twenty one years old.

What we keep and what we choose to throw away often contains the very story of our life. It is illustrative of what we have chosen to give importance to, and what we have decided is not worth pursuing. “Its three years since our separation, but I still keep finding little things that belonged to my ex-husband, or remind me of him,” says Anahita, who runs a successful catering business. “It could be the odd picture, or some cuff links I remember him wearing on one or two occasions, or an old pair of glasses with ridiculously large frames. I don’t know how these things turn up, but whenever they do, they bring me the familiar dilemma – should I just get rid of them? Should I keep them? Or should I return them to him, even though we hardly keep in touch.”
