Parenting Challenges in the New MillenniumThe horrific details in the paper seemed too awful to be true. Three young boys, all below 18, had lured another 11 year-old friend of theirs to a house whose occupants were away, with the promise of letting him play hours of video games. When the boy began to cry after a while, to be sent home, they strangled him to death, then covered up their tracks in a macabre re-enactment of a scene from a Tamil hit film of 2005 – by throwing chilli powder to put sniffer dogs off the scent. After disposing of their friend’s body, the three rang up the boy’s parents as kidnappers, asking for ransom money.
 
The Chennai police did not take long to crack this particular case in the final weeks of 2006. What completely shocked and stunned everyone who heard of the details was the reason that emerged for this crime – the three young boys had kidnapped and murdered their friend to raise money to buy a cell phone and to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style. How could children be guilty of such a grave act? How could they have grown up without a sense of what is right, and what is completely wrong?

Office Spouse: Close Relationships at workIt’s the most natural thing in the world, but its also the most artificial. Developing feelings of fondness for someone you see 12 hours out of the 24, sometimes 15, or even 18, is very natural. Not only are you seeing colleagues who work with you a lot more than you can see your own family members, you are also seeing them perform in a way that you cannot really expect your actual spouse to.
 
Whether its responding to deadlines, handling people and relationships, having a sense of humour, or keeping a cool head under stressful conditions, people you work with can be measured by any of these yardsticks and more. Which is more than can be said of your spouse. Why should someone, with whom you share leisure moments like watching TV, sleeping (!), socializing and shopping, show any of the qualities you have noticed in a colleague? When we expect the same dynamic qualities in our spouses, that our co-workers at office seem to possess, we are often doing both an injustice.

Office Relationships 2: Treading LightlySometimes the best birthdays one can celebrate are the ones with colleagues in office. The murmur has already gone around among one’s co-workers several days previous to the big day. On the birthday morning, it is wonderful to come to office to find flowers and a card on one’s desk, and colleagues popping up every now and then, some to offer greetings, others to demand a treat!
 
The affection we receive and exchange with those we work with is a really precious commodity in these stressful times. Friendships at work are not only  important – they may be the sole factor keeping us cheerful, motivated and still committed to our work, when other forms of satisfaction are far from forthcoming. Put crudely, when a boss is frying your behind, your friends can still extend a hand to pull you out.

Photos as Keepsakes: The Digital AgeSome of the best moments in your life are probably only preserved on a scrap of photographic paper – grainy images from a carefree childhood, or the gawky look of your adolescence with a friend who may have had a premature death. Photographs have long been the only way we had of preserving our collective memories. Since the invention of the camera, photos have been around to remind us of people, places and moments in time – make us smile in reflection, or have moist eyes at our recollection.
 
So what’s happening to the photo concept around us? Today friends are taking pictures of each other on their cell phones, eating a burger or going to the multiplex. Handycams and digicams have made the old home movie concept obsolete – anything can now be made into a movie and captured and stored on a CD at home. YouTube has made movie making a completely competitive arena for global amateurs. The ‘photo’ as we know it has been processed and re-processed into something completely different.
