Cell phone caperThe conversation with her best friend had run on for over an hour. At the end of it, Preeti was in a reflective mood. She walked around, putting away things in the small room she had as a paying guest in the busy metro, letting the details of the romantic crisis afflicting her friend run through her head. Feeling philosophical, she decided to send one last sms. “Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired…” she wrote. “You don’t know it, but you are loved in a thousand ways, even if it isn’t in the way you want…good night, get some sleep.” As she punched in the familiar numbers, she was yawning, feeling sleepy herself. It was past midnight.

Those small objects

Knick knacksHave you walked into a Lladro or Swarovski showroom and wondered at the people who have Rs. 40,000/- to spend on a little figurine to keep in their drawing room cabinet? Have you gone into a friend’s house and seen such a cute little terracotta Ganesh that you mentally vowed to get one just like that one for your own home? Have you been browsing idly and with no particular interest in an exhibition that your friend dragged you to, and then found exactly what you wanted – a napkin holder made of clear acrylic and dried rose petals?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, you will know the role that bric-a-brac or small knick knacks, or objects of limited utility but high sentimental value have within the house you set up with your partner. When people get married and settle down, they begin to accumulate what becomes a virtual museum in the years that follow. All their friends’ and well-wishers’ gifts, all their experiences together with their share of souvenirs, all the little symbols they acquire of their growing prosperity – everything is translated into little objects that inhabit their home.

Vidya balanA recent series of ads for a mobile phone service provider shows Vidya Balan and Madhavan as the much-in-love couple who are doing the things couples do – going off on holiday, entertaining friends in the evening etc. During all these activities, Vidya is the wife who is very much in charge, reminding her husband of things like closing windows, putting off the lights before they leave for their vacation, paying mobile bills and sending either of their fathers money, making salad and changing the cushion covers. In fact, within the commercials themselves, such reminders form the major portion of their conversation.

Advertisers are not dumb people. They are especially trained to pick up those often-observed traits that constitute normal behaviour. If Vidya is projected as the reminder service for Madhavan, it is because in real life too, it is most often the wife who reminds her husband of things to be done to keep their domestic picture in good shape.

TeensPeer pressure impacts everybody at some point in time irrespective of how popular or close knit your friend circle is. This is probably what prompted Dennis Wolfberg to say, “There’s one advantage of being 102. There’s no peer pressure.”

Peer pressure can manifest itself in many forms. And it can effect even very young children. Ms. Reza, mother of a three year old says, “I always thought that peer pressure is something that only teenagers had to cope with. But, I soon realized how wrong I was. My three year old daughter was crazy about Barbie shoes. But after a few days she refused to wear them. When asked why, the child said because her friends said that they didn’t like it. I was really baffled.” This is a very simplified example. Things can get very complex.

It is important for us as parents to be aware of the fact that children begin to explore the various relationships they have relationship with the primary caregivers (parents), the peer group, the teachers etc. It is during this time they also figure out their individuality and where they stand in relationship with others.

Work-life balanceToday’s young people have it all. And that too at an age that gives them the luxury of a lifetime to enjoy what they possess. So, the  result should logically be a set of absolutely jubilant people living life to the lees. But, unfortunately, it is not so.

More and more young people are experiencing the “burn out” syndrome. Divorce rates are on the rise. Global economy, international businesses, advanced communication technology and longer hours (or should we say on the job 24/7) are beginning to take their toll on people’s lives and people are struggling to find the magic mantra that will help them strike a balance between a successful career and a happy and contented family life.

Rahul is a banker and his wife Nisha is a teacher. According to Rahul, “ Nisha is very understanding. There are times when I see her only at the breakfast table. But, she never complains. Except for the occasional wifely croons (which I guess is fine). And we make up for lost time by pampering ourselves with short getaways now and then. And I don’t think our marriage is on the rocks.” Nisha somewhat reluctantly agrees. But, she does not forget to add, “I understand that nowadays people are on the job 24/7. And yes holidays together make up somewhat but, one cannot know importance of your loved one actually “being there” for you all the time and not only when he has enough time to spare so that he can go on holiday!”
