Dedicated to my friends:
my friends who are not like rain or sunshine that comes and goes away. they are like the air I breathe which I might not b able to see, but is always around me, hugging me, enveloping me....my friends make me feel like Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes that even when I'm having my weirdest "Kazaam" moments...they get it...they are a one up better in that...

Sure. The times, they are a-changing. Women are coming to the fore-front. They are surging ahead, taking their rightful places in the corporate world. But alas, that top position still remains a Utopia for many a woman. The glass still ain't weak enough to break through. Ever wondered why, 95-97% of senior managers, the world over are males? Thats due to the Glass ceiling, my friends. The 'Glass Ceiling’ is a barrier to prevent women rising to the highest positions in an organization as a result of informal exclusionary practices.These practices include sexual harassment, sexual discrimination and pregnancy discrimination.
While a lot of male readers would be squirming in their seats reading this, but its a glaring fact we simply choose to turn our back on.
Explanations for the ‘glass ceiling’ phenomena derive from the stereotype of womeninto traditional roles. Many men still carry the attitude despite living inthis modern day and age that women are not capable of higher managerial roles and thattheir place rightfully belongs at home along with the house-hold chores. There is also the point that many corporate firms think twice before employing women for the top position, in terms of their level of commitment, for it is inevitable that every woman will want to have a child at some point in their life. However maternity leave is viewed upon as an expense in terms of money and the valuable time that iswasted in order to fill the vacant position.
The organisational structure is another barrier that women have to contend with forit is evident that most firms are male dominated and huddle together when itcomesto after work social activities, thus leaving the woman to feel as an outcast.
Despite 30 years of professional expertise, equal to their male copunterparts, ladies still don't make it to the top positions. While there may be some women higher up in management it can be argued that these are just ‘token’ positions so that the corporate management cannot be accused of discrimination. Those few who are successful in making it are then dealt the blow of being paid substantially less then their male counterparts. This as a result shows just how wide spread theundervaluing of women’s work really is.
On the risk of sounding ultra-feminist, Women are warriors. They bleed. They cut. But they never ever cry out. And when they do. Its too little. Too late.

Sail across the troubled waters.
You conquered it all
You vanquished it all.
Go yonder the black clouds,
and look unto thee.
The light that shines in you.
The light that leads you.
Whispers softly to the winds,
Growing softer and softer,
Calmer and calmer,
stronger and stronger,
The storms within have been rested.
Tears a many have been invested,
Now the raft beckons thee.
For it has a shining light
Look yonder and you'll see
The future is much bright.

I have a theory... I feel we all are about as happy as we let ourselves to be. And in relationships, this holds a lotta water. Ok, since you are pulling those confused faces at this logic, let me enlighten ye... Hold on... who knows, this might win the nobel prize or something....
The secret to a very happy relationship is... ta-da-da...(*drumroll*)... BEING YOURSELF!!!!! YIPPPEEE!!!! There. I made my point. er... ahem... Not exactly earth-quaking, eye-popping, heart-clutching revelation. But a revelation, none the less amigo.
Here goes. We should completely let go of our inhibitions while in a solid relationship. And that holds for any kind of them under the sun. Be it with your parents. Be it with your sibling. Be it with your boyfriend or spouse... Its the hang-ups that hold us back. And eventually, we spend the entire time thinking about how to impress the other person, rather than just act upon our gut feelings. You see, that other person probably knows you better than well.... you. And he/ she doesn't give a rat's ass if you are not wearing that in color of the season, he/ she doesn't care whether you..heck... let out that tiny fart. No need to go red. Just go Talking. Communication people. That's the most important key and i guess we have forgotten the combination on that lock. We keep ourselves cooped up.
Gosh! After coming to the fag end of this piece, I suddenly very agony-auntish or one of those "loove gurus" on the FM channels!!!! hehehehe
But guess, we can all do with a little love. Eh?

Presenting words of wisdom by none other than Mithun Chokroborty himself.....
" Bheegi hui cigarette kabhi jal nahi sakti.....
aur yeh tay hai ki teri maut ki taarikh tal nahi sakti "
"Apuun ka naam hai HEERA,
Apuun ne sab ko Cheera..." (wah wah.....)
shetty: "kaun hai be tu?"
Mithun da says-
"Mai hoon tum jaise logon se nafarat karne wala,
Garibon ke liye jyoti, Gundon ke liye jwala
tuze banake maut ka Ek niwala,
tere sine mein gaad dunga mai maut ka bhala.
Mila doonga yamraj se tere ko salaaaa." (who thought poor Shetty would have to listen to beautifOOL poetry before *sniff* he got the life punched outta him??)
" kyunki ab mein Indrajeet nahi......chandaal hoon
tum chaho toh mera program note karlo
...tum sab meri diary mein mar chuke ho!
mein chahoo toh tum sabko abhi mar sakta hoon
magar abhi maarne se tumhe maarne ka credit meri bullet ko mil jayega!!!! "
( kya logic hain!!!!!!!! !,superb! )
" Main hoon Do Numbri, ek se jyaada, teen se kam
Dikhne mein bevda, bhaagne mein ghoda, aur maarne mein hathoda .... " (
" Jitani tumane saanse li hongi, usase jyaada maine lashein girayi hai
Mantriji:- "Ye kanch bullretproof hai.
tum mujhe chu bhi nahi sakte"
Mithun Da:-"Ye kanch bulletproof hai magar patthhar proof nahi"
AND HE BREAKS IT BY THROWING STONES ON THE GLASS. (BONK!!!)
And the best one…………….
Mithun da gets a bullet on his leg, Looks at the villain scornfully, calmly stands up and says-
"DUSHMANO KI LAASHON PAR BHANGRA KARNE WALA KABHI LANGDA NAHIN HO SAKTA"
" Koi Shaq..??"
