Public Places and PrivacyA well-known joke repeated among Indian stand-up comics is that in the West, you can kiss in public, but you can’t piss. In India it is just the opposite – you can piss in public, but you can’t kiss. Moral standards and ideas of decency in our society have always demanded that affection between partners be reserved for the indoors, rather than be shown in full public view outdoors.

In fact, so strident has the moral policing become, in the name of ‘Indian values’ that police in small towns are shown on TV beating couples found in parks with lathis. They have opened themselves to such thrashing just by holding hands in public, or sitting too cosily together on a park bench. This increased intolerance for young couples to be seen together in public is a matter of distress to many young people.

Social Networking SitesSocial networking sites are presently making news because of the profiles that young and ruthless terrorists had opened for themselves on forums like Orkut. While the media makes much of pages labeled Hizbul Mujahideen and tries to do an in depth analysis of the data entered by slain terrorist Atif Ameen on his Orkut page, it is worth checking out what a few youthful people feel about social networking sites as a whole.

“There’s just no substitute for SN sites,” says Manoj, a young marketing executive who has done everything from bartending to being a DJ for select parties. “In my free time, I have to hit my page and find out what my friends have said, whether anyone new has found me, and try some new game applications. I think SN sites are valuable because you can connect with friends and classmates from so long ago – people who have moved away and gone to another part of the world.” Manoj is so enamoured of social networking that he has a profile on no less than 3 well-known sites.

Disagreeable PeopleThey lurk everywhere. In the crooks and corners of everyday life, the winding corridors of power and fame and even in the cocoon of your home and hearth. I’m talking about those disagreeable people who often surface in our lives to jolt us out of our silly illusions about the Buddha nature that is alive and kicking in every human being.

And the sad part is that they remain an integral part of our lives. Only those mortals who have an extraordinary dollop of luck on their side can ever hope to never experience the burden of their company.

How many of us have not encountered the meanness in someone who will have everything her own way and who cannot brook the slightest show of opposition? I know a few such people and I must confess I’m scared to death of being in their vicinity for any length of time. I vividly recall the scathing comments of one such miserable, so called friend of mine. (Experts believe it is their own unacknowledged misery and deep self-contempt that causes people to be cruel and disagreeable).

RejectionMany of us want to love. We want to go forward with love and have a partner for life. But we are afraid. Are you one of them? Sometimes when we are afraid with the right choice we land up with somebody we never wanted.

I remember a man who was in deep love with a woman. The woman was also in love with this man but was shy. The man thought of telling her many times about his love but was afraid of being rejected. This fear stopped him whenever he attempted. He could never tell her that he loved her.
