The StruggleWhat do butterflies have in common with the human spirit? Meet Maggie, a middle aged wife and mother who was about to find out.

Maggie wasn’t rich like a millionaire or poor in a manner of being homeless. She was living an average comfortable life. It was made even better when a beautiful baby girl came her way. She and her husband made sure their daughter had her needs met and they were still able to take a yearly vacation by the beach.

Maggie was a partner in her husband’s business. They both had a different set of duties which kept everything in balance. One day a devastating blow came to her husband’s business, and over a three year period the business dropped out of site. Her husband had to totally reinvent himself and was yearning to fulfill a dream with a new vocation. She was happy for him and supported him fully, but still the money was not coming in.

Former President APJ Abdul KalamOn Thursday the 26th of July, as I drove around the city of Chennai, my favourite FM radio station continued to say at regular intervals, ‘Welcome home, Sir!’ They were welcoming the arrival of former President APJ Abdul Kalam to Chennai after completing his five-year tenure as the people’s President. Even as I grappled mentally with the details of my work and routine, this message of warm welcome was being echoed in my own heart and mind. Since his beginning days in Rashtrapati Bhavan, it has been difficult to resist the sincerity and simplicity of Dr. Abdul Kalam.

Should parents stay married for childsake?The first time this question occurred to me was on that singular occasion when Sarath, my friend’s 14 year old son and I stayed awake watching a late night show on television. His parents had been divorced since the last ten years, when he would have been a tender four. That night he spoke about how life had been a grim struggle for ‘me and my sis’ as far back as he could remember.

“I was only four years but I still remember so much. At that time I felt really traumatized when I watched my parents fighting and squabbling over meaningless things. And when I saw my mother cut her wrist because she was upset with my father, I was extremely distraught. For a couple of days I even lost my power of speech. I became rebellious in school and the principal even called my parents to find out why I had become like that.”

The memories of childhoodMemories are one’s state of things remembered, right? Not entirely. Memories can sometimes remain beyond the realm of immediate recall, embedded as they are in the deepest layers of our subconscious. And memories if painful, can sometimes be blocked by a process of selective recall, causing painful events to get lost in the folds of time.

This is, I believe, part of nature’s protective mechanism to keep us from feeling avoidable pain. But triggered by unexpected or unforeseen incidents, forgotten memories sometimes emerge from the ashes of our past to shape our present actions.

An arranged marriageFor Sheetal it would have been yet another uneventful day had she not finally surrendered to her mother. She was tired of hearing her mother complain, ”Shalini will grow old waiting for you to find a husband.”

Her sister Shalini, was just two years younger to her but somehow Sheetal always felt ancient in front of the youthful ebullience of her dazzlingly beautiful sister. Her mother had wept inconsolably saying, “Ever since your dad walked out on us, I’ve been both father and mother to you girls.  Do you understand how burdened I feel?”
