Odd Rule Out

It is the time we all should start taking up the household job which was our duty but somehow we never too it seriously.I would rather say that it was not just all my fault but also some of it goes to our traditions and culture of which we are part of.Since my childhood I have seen that my mother would work from whole day and she did not got any rest and had to continously work without any stop.My grandparents were good but they felt this as normal thing.I even once asked my mother about it and she just smiled and said that we work to keep the family in shape and happy.Many years have passed now and situation has also changed as woman are coming out of their homes to stand up and raise their voice against any kind of voilence or discrimination.They have progressed a lot over the period due to education and right to equal rights for all.

Now I am married and did not wanted that history to repeat itself.My mother supported me openly and she took a stand this time.Meanwhile,I have also tried my best to help my wife in household chores a little bit.I try to help her by getting my child ready for breakfast and dressing him up while my wife does other work in the house.I have taken time from office to go late in the morning so that I could help my wife.I have also started to learn little bit of cooking so that I can help to prepare certain simple recipes if she falls ill.This is one part of doing my bit and I have now decided to go extra mile for her as I have decided to take a #LaundryGoesOddEven with my wife and Arial played the role in the middle to bring us together.I remember my mother used to wash clothes for hours and then she would go to balcony and this process would take so long hours.I am delighted that Ariel made washing clothes very easy and made me realize that any one could wash the clothes.It is not just a woman who can do it.Now I will wash the clothes and do the laundry work on even days and during holidays.I was little nervous in the beginning but washed clothes look so much clean which made me feel like jumping with joy.

There is nothing better than doing something for our family and home.I had great satisfaction and my life loves me even more.

Motivation for Household Work

Gender inequalities must be rooted from our society and it must be done as soon as possible. We have seen that present generation is different from something which was ten years back. All this has happened with time and due to lot of innovation and advancement in technology. The young kids are taking the unconventional root from becoming engineer or doctor and now want to be an entrepreneur and be part of start up culture. They are not afraid of the society and ignore the things as said in the close family circle. Young ones are losing out interest in reading books and novels and simply want to catch up with movies and entertainment. The true values and morals which were taught to us with help of books are now being lost and we often see library room vacant in schools and colleges. Children do not believe much in hard work and this is the major reason of why health problems are on the rise. They have become too lazy and just want to copy things. They do not have the time for their parents and doing the odd cleaning job at home. They are dependent on house maid or mother for even a cup of water. Mother usually ignores their behaviour at home and love for them makes them bling.But everything has a limit and next generation must act to share the workload at home with parents and listen to them. Technology is not everything and the end. It is just for support to humans.

I would urge all the parents and responsible people in the society to take up actions so that children should not restrict themselves to technology and on other people. They must be a rule in their school or part of curriculum where they have to perform household duties and should be part of their marking scheme. This way they will have a habit of supporting their mother. Another thing is that gender discrimination should not happen at all and they must be given a lesson on treating everyone at equal. Male and woman are both as one and should co-ordinate to support the household chores. Parents should not given their children over attention and let them leave alone so that they can work on their own at home.Houshold chores and its training can be given to children once a week and child could be given some incentive for doing the work which can motivate them more. These suggestions can work if taken into consideration.

#ShareTheLoad GenNext

Let us all once put ourself in mother shoes and do a role change activity. This will help to realize that amount of pressure a mother undergoes during her 24 hours of duty at home.I did the same thing once while my mother played my role as a office working boy.I could not even do half of the total work done by my mom on daily basis at home.Her commitment to work and dedication to it from her heart and soul is so much.Her works starts from early morning before the sunrise and this goes up till midnight.It is kind of twenty fours duty and with no holiday to it.I can now imagine her situation where she has to look after the kitchen and meals preparation.Then work includes cleaning the rooms and keeping them neat and clean.After this the duty to wash the clothes and iron them.This can be difficult for one person to do all the work on daily bases and this can sometimes leads to health problem with the female working all day long.It is not a simple process and I would tag my mother as a super woman of modern times.This is the case of every Indian woman who is housewife.I salute them for their efforts in running the house and that too with too little support from other family members.

Next generation has a major role to play now to take this #sharetheload movement forward and spread it through use of technology and social media.They can make a selfie moment revolution while working at home and doing something related to household chore and post it through facebook and twitter.This can really boost up in their social network and their close friends and family would follow them on social circle and be part of this.A chain can bring about a huge change which can spread the message that woman are not made only for household chores and even kids and adults must lend their support.

I am proud to say now that I have started to #sharetheload at my home and this has really brought me more close to my family and given a new life to it.My wife can now move out and get more time to shop and talk to friends.She can concentrate on her health and figure out more issues and resolve them quickly.I see that my children have also started to help in work by keeping their room in organized way and cleaning the mat.The effect is clearly visible and I feel very happy to see the change in generation next.

Internship Memories

Happiness to me in those days was getting my Internship letter from one of the private sector company. I am talking about the times when only few companies would visit the college and select only few candidates for the purpose of internship. There was less chance to get train and sharpen your skills with the big organizations as it was due to our college was not the tier 1 college. Most of the companies would go to the prestigious colleges with big names and only three or four companies would visit the campus. I was lucky to clear the interview and get selected to train in the metro city Delhi which is also known as capital of India.

It was a beginning of new journey as I had lived with my parents all together all those years and it was first time that I got the chance to visit different place and get accustomed to new environment. Internship made me grow from college boy to young men with independent charge. I was no more into spoon feeding in those three months and it was a really hard life. I got to realize that how difficult to live without family and friends. I had to do all work on my own and then come back to rented flat and do all the household chores including washing my clothes and cooking food. It was a kind of project which helped me to improve my personality and English language. It made me improve my communication skills and knowledge about market and working on different tools and techniques. It made me understand about using technology and computer for data capture and analysing it for future use. I felt that internship and studying in college is completely different ball game and we must use the things learned in college to use it in the market but at the right time. My key aspects of learning in those three months of training are getting to know that how much co-ordination among different departments is very important task. I was given the work to study the organizational structure of various departments and give ideas to improve their structure and functioning. I was also in regular contact with the college professor and teachers and would discuss contents of Project to get the solution to my problems and get their guidance.

I found the internship very useful for me and recommend every student to take such opportunity as a fresher or experienced. It is a perfect platform to learn and gain knowledge.

Golden Days of Internship

College days were the best part of my student life and it was such a great life where their was not much pressure and tensions.It was all about being cool and enjoying life without any big responsibility.My whole life took a complete turn once the internship started and I was a complete different personality after those few months of training which still helps to cope up with different situations in office.I was finding it difficult in the starting of my training but slowly and steadily I learnt to be flexible and adaptable to the working conditions.Then I was also able to develop my ability to work in team and take independent charge which is an important for working in any industry today.

I was also part of promotions and selling activity at the main sales counter in company stall at the exhibition counter and displaying of the products.This was really exciting as I got to interact with people directly and understand aspects of marketing and selling skills.During this period different kind of task were assigned by heads of various departments which gave knowledge about the various aspects of functioning and understanding different people role and their responsibilities in the whole assignment.The project ended with a certificate from the company and a casio watch as a memonto for me.This whole period was like a test run for me before making the cut and prepare myself for the road ahead.Further I also told the company about key things which can help in reducing cost and this can be done by starting centralization system of the whole network and standardisation of their product cost.The best part of my work was taking the role of  area mapping by visiting different geographical areas and comparing different brands and our company products in terms of availability and consumer preference.I was also given the major big task to help my boss in knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the company and making the research report.This kind of activity was key liking and my favorite part of internship.

My hardwork and efforts to complete internship project was appreciated by the whole company and my school professor too.The most amazing thing for me was getting a preplacement letter from the company which helped in the future during the college placement.I was no more worried about getting a job like many other candidates and this made a big difference in my approach for the interview during the placement time.

Holi Festival

India has been a land of festivals and people often sing different types of songs from emotional to religious ones during the holi festival. These songs are so full of emotions that one feels the same feelings and often feel connected to the situation. Even today when you hear her golden melodious voice, the joy you will get will be just unparalleled to hearing of any other song of this new modern generation. These songs were often sung by my grandmother during the holi celebration at home in the past. Further my mom would prepare the carrot halwa and homemade traditional sweets and it was one of the tastiest and healthy homemade recipes. I want to bring that time again and play holi with same energy this year.

Holi brings the feeling of being together which is very beautiful. It gives you the much needed support and love in your life. I feel that younger generation must take time to celebrate this festival as it brings such a huge amount of positive vibes and happiness. The best thing is that you can have a fresh and joyful start of the day with colors.We are born to live a happy and healthy life but we end up going after money and forget the real purpose of life. It is also known fact that certain colours can cause damage to skin as our skin is too fine and delicate. As a parent, I want to guide all my readers today about natural ways of protecting the skin from hazards and using simple tricks and tips which can help against cheap and artificial spray that can harm the skin in long run and cause health problems. I would add use of hair oil before playing holi for skin protection.

Holi is the festival of colours and I enjoy it very much since childhood. There are so many old memories I recall with my family and those good moments which have still not faded. But now the situation has changed and Holi celebration is not the same or even half of it as it was few years back. I would also get some good surprise gifts from close family members and blessings from others during this day. We must take Holi festival as an opportunity and enjoy this festival with family. We need to go back and learn from our ancestors who had given more importance and value to relationship in life and festivals.

#MemoriesForLife

Home is where we have a family and strong bonding with our family members. We live together, eat and stay with each other and share our feelings and memorable moments of life. Memories like cooking dinner for family or painting the walls plus playing with kids are some of the memories to share about. I love to travel and see the world but nothing better than home. It makes me extremely happy to be family and enjoy with children. I get immense satisfaction after seeing my family members waiting for me as I come from my work. They hug me and give a kiss to me. My wife gives refreshing chilled drink and children take my suitcase. It is their presence which makes home alive.

Let me go back in past days and certain moments make me sad too. I am talking here about mother. My mom is best in the world and no matter whatever I do; I cannot still overcome the sacrifice she has done for me in her whole lifetime. I still try to remember and wish I could give her a new heart or a better medical help but all in vain. She was so close to me and understood each family member very much. Her mixing nature with everyone and smile on her face was something I try to learn every day and fight challenges of life. After the rituals, my tears could not stop and I tried my best to hide my face but all in vain. It was big loss for our family which cannot be replaced with anything else.

My best trip has been in Goa few months back with family. I felt very happy with the spectacular view of the beach and greenery all round this picturesque property and helped me to unwind and have unforgettable pleasant experience. It is extremely cool place and a unique experience of watching everything closely as never before and I would say everyone who can, should experience Goa once in a lifetime. I could see lots of water fun activities taking place like water boating, jet skiing and Para gliding. Family and children were enjoying their time at the beach and it was very entertaining trip.Surajkund Mela is one thing which I never miss. I visited this mela this year with my family and relatives and was overwhelmed by the number of stalls and their designer products and their creativity. This event also showcased various cultural events, folk dances and magic doll shows which reminded me of childhood days.

I would thank my family and God for giving me opportunity to have good time with family members.

Shining Moments

Our life is not a bed of roses and there are challenges for each one of us every day. We must be ready to face them at all times and the best thing to take this forward is to have a good start of the day. It all starts from home and first thing comes is family. It is the family where you are surrounded by people who love you and support you. I have many moments and I love when I get some good surprise gifts from close family members and blessings from others which keeps me ticking and moving in life.

One of the memories which I remember was while preparing for my medical exam. I knew that I had overweight condition. My parents took me to gym trainer who gave me diet chart and right coaching. He helped me to lose weight so that I could qualify for the same. It could not be possible without him as he took the pain and would jog and run with me for hours. I think all that made me lose weight by about ten kilogram and made me look fir. I think my family sacrifice and their love for me have special place in heart.

I remember the valentine day few years ago when I became the luckiest person of the world and proposed my girlfriend. I was elated and spell bound and I could just put a smile and give her a hug. I had a love marriage and it was my choice. The true memories started after the marriage and it was all about being together even at the moments of crisis which helped me to face the problems of life with a smile. I have been working lately with my wife and trying to help her in home and sharing the work with her. Such moments like these tell us how to live and show us how to love. Even the arguments which we have sometimes have their own role to play in a relationship and that took a very important one. The feeling of being with family is very beautiful. It gives you the much needed support and love in your life. Your soul partner-your wife is the strength of you as well your family.

Real togetherness can be achieved by being connected with nature. It gives me comfort and acts like a medicine to me. Travelling with family to beaches or hill stations helps me to overcome all my fatigue and stress behind and help me to find happiness for real togetherness.

Rinse and Repeat #ShareTheLoad

It is often found that housewife stands like a solid pillar and gives moral support and emotional support to family members.She takes care of everything and manage household alone.She takes care of food and clothing,cleaning and many more responsibilities.She makes look house perfect in all aspect and very much organized.She keeps on working hard and never cares about any sort of praise or anything else.I would say that household work is a big task and requires lot of efforts.Running the whole house is not any child play and requires commitment and time to ensure everything is taken care in right way. We should not be self centred and wait for wife to do the cleaning job.Children for next generation should leave the old myths and perform all work at home.

It is important that housewife must get enough sleep and rest to stay fresh and happy.This can be done by reducing her work at home and helping her in any form of household chore.This could be by cleaning your room or utensils.You can also wash your own clothes and laundry.All this activity together will be beneficial  work will be done in very quick and in hassle free manner andSmall moments like helping your wife in the kitchen or doing laundry can tell you how to live and show your love and affection for her. It could be small activity but this will show that you respect her and take care of her.There is also a chance that your body shape could come back on track with more activeness of the body leading to a healthy life.

This will help them to sustain a better living and achieve something more in life.It will give them time to think more about their hobbies and pursue other things in life.This can give them an opportunity to utilize their full potential and may reduce their stress.

I am born in such a society where there are little more favorable conditions for woman and people often stand with male in all situations.People try to pass comments and want that laundry should be woman affair only but we must do something from our side to share the load. Time has come that we all stand up to fight for woman pride at home and household chore should be made mandatory for all and treated  as primary responsibility.It will make men more responsible and also help in making their relationship at home more strong and give joy of real togetherness.

I am joining the Ariel #ShareTheLoad campaign at BlogAdda and blogging about the prejudice related to household chores being passed on to the next generation.

Stop and #ShareTheLoad

We all know that home duties and household work are considered to be the work and domain of the women while the work outside the home, i.e. to earn the bread for the family has been considered the domain of the man in the house. But now it is just an old age notion, nothing else. As time changes, our needs change while responsibilities change and so change the culture and ethics of the society with them. The need of the hour is to recognize our duty towards our own family and try to manage things in our home at least to make this world a better place to live. I can understand that this would be highly difficult to implement but once started, it will help the whole family. It can generate huge amount of positive vibes and help in removing gender prejudice at home.

Indian women have achieved global heights in today’s times in different fields. I would like to salute all such an extraordinary working women for their great achievements in life. I would also give credit to the entire house wife who run the show behind the curtain and work whole day at home just to make sure that family members have good and cool environment at home. It is the power of education which helps to move forward in life and we should understand that woman at home also can excel if given a chance to spread their wings. There is need to change mindset that woman have to complete all work at home.

I suppose that doing house work with family members could be helpful and you may also feel relaxed and it can be used as an effective tranquilizer in one’s life to stay active at times. I can say that participating in house work can do wonders in your life. Woman is the core member of any family and she is the one who will keep you and your family together as well as give you the strength and love to fight the world. It is just a matter of unity with support which helps us to improve our relationship and bonding.

Male should also contribute and help woman in household work. I recommend that proper mentoring and lesson should be given to young children so that they do not depend on others for work. All men must see and take pride in doing laundry so that it could set an example for our next generation and signifies importance of sharing the load together in the family.
