15 points to prove that you are watching excess of TV

Do you have TV lovers at home who can't live without watching TV? I'm married in a family where watching TV is a family trait that is passed from one generation to other. My in-laws are big-big TV lovers, my husband is another TV freak whom I know and now my son is following the path of his father with developing his liking for TV. Basically I see my whole family as a TV addict tribe. Thanks to new era of technology we can watch TV any time and anywhere. And this concept of repeat telecast has given people the opportunity to catch their number one shows irrespective of schedules and timings.
Below are the few points with which, if you can relate yourself (or your family) then you may be watching too much of TV:
1. You measure how many daily soaps you can accommodate within the time you have, before going out for work or any other commitment.
2. You do multitasking with watching TV, like chopping, cutting, repairing and even anything which can be done with gazing TV.
3. You want to have breakfast/lunch/dinner in your living room (where TV lives).
4. You started liking your favourite show's theme songs. No matter they are good in listening or not. 
5. When you bother to stand up for any reason during the TV show telecast, you can see a clean indication on the cushion/sofa/mattress where you were sitting.
6. You can control even nature's call while watching TV and you can regulate it to happen after show ends.
7. You started considering yourself as an expert for the matters like politics, crime, economics and medicines. All thanks to those countless news channels.  
8. About few episodes before show's final episode, you start worrying what you will do during that time when show ends.
9. In every new daily soap, you can recognize its characters and you can tell in which shows they have already worked. 
10. You have mastered placing things around TV so that you can easily get them when needed. For example, water bottles next to sofa. 
11. You feel pain for the TV characters when they are not well or are injured.
12. You can't remember your daily schedule but you remember timings of your best shows.
13. You don't want interruption while watching TV so you have learned ignoring what is happening around you. For example, cries of your baby.
14. Immediately after coming back from market, you switch on the TV rather than wearing off your shoes.
15. And you become tensed with the thought that your TV is not working and you are missing your "so natural", "so real" and "so entertaining" TV soaps.
This idiot box has become the most popular entertainment medium for millions of people around the world. But apart from entertaining and relaxing us, it is damaging us also. Watching excess TV can cause diabetes, depression and heart diseases. It can pile up extra kilos in our bodies. Also, TV watching affects kids with hampering development of their brains and concentration abilities. So please put down the remote and go for a book or other healthy time pass options. Do it for yourself and most importantly for your kids.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
