Click here to listen to this on YouTube To be a better wife, I need a husband who’s here. Here, helping at home with the chores, Sharing the work so that I can have more, Giving me time to relax just by being there. There, chopping the veggies at night, Washing the dishes that lieContinue reading “To Be A Better Wife, Indian Lockdown Song Lyrics”

It has to be a full circle to show you your face, A mirror that reveals that hidden, dark place. The good that rings true, plus the faults that you hide, Life will take you on it’s roller coaster ride. It has to be a full circle because you have to pay, The piper youContinue reading “A Full Circle”
If I was God, I would want to make sure women outlived the men in their family. Not all, but some at least. Genetics, and hormones do this for us, most of the time. But I would want this because I have seen the Indian man.
The sins of the mother, come down to her son, But how long should we blame her for what he’s become? One year of marriage – a journey together, That year during which we learn more about each other. Two years to bend, and to meet in the middle, Three to feel the need toContinue reading “5 Years A Victim”
She wants to know when they’re happy but not when they’re sad, When they’re laughing out loud, but not when they’re mad. He expresses his feelings, but when THEY do it’s not fine, Unless they think alike. That’s OK… Both on the same side.
This is my story and the story of many young couples today. It’s about a journey to work-life balance….
9 to 5 equals 7 to 7,
On days that are busy, they’re home after eleven.
Lets light a fire that burns up hate Let it burn strong before it’s too late. Hold onto change even if it’s small, Keep the flame burning high – it might someday help us all.
Lets not be like the blind man who has met with the elephant, Who knows just one part but thinks the knowledge of others is irrelevant. Lets find comfort in difference, and give everyone a voice, Lets not be offended when their way is not our choice.
Stand up and fight for what is right, With words imperfect, but a heart that’s alright. Be the flame that sheds light – alive and strong, When society wants a display of money, or when you see something wrong.
She’s there for a reason and her reason is money. If you’re not doing well she won’t find your jokes funny! She can’t understand why you treat her so well, When here purse is empty and her budget’s shot to hell.
We’re the women who dress up to visit our mothers. We live by our own standards, don’t paint us with your colour. Blow dry our hair and put on our best dress, No it’s not a night out to paint the town red!

And I want you to think about how they de-sensitise people to the pain of living beings in general. And how this impacts society. This post also has a few tips on howContinue reading “Letter : A plea for a humane society”
She’s like the bottom of the pot, where the spoon scrapes. When there’s less inside, to put on our plates. The bottom of the barrel that bears the pressure, When it’s filled to the brim and there’s no ease or leisure.
Do you ever, Leave your house without your phone, Call up somebody who lives alone? Feel grateful for the friend who was there through the sad, Let your maid have a day off when her back is bad?
Do you believe in God but shun religion? Feel that faith strong and quiet will shine out from within? Jai Shree Ram or Praise The Lord, Or Allah Hu Akbar, to me there’s just one God.
Why can’t #Mentoo help #Metoo? Why can’t we have fair laws? Since when does consent turn to rape, Just because a relationship has gone sour?
Can we call out that woman – the one who hates, Who won’t support her sister until it’s too late. Who gives support to the man who does women harm, Even though she knows he’s the one in the wrong.
Can we look at the rapist – the one who did wrong? Was it bad upbringing, social issues, or genes gone wrong? Can we look at the man who hammers his wife, And not be the support that bolsters his fake pride.
Do you want children so quick, or is it the pressure?
From family and friends who really should know better.
Who should let you do things at your own pace,
Take a little time so you have more savings and space.
