"Ohh.. My Godess" (A Fiction Story)


One day, Goddess Laxmi went to her husband Lord Vishnu and said "Dear Vishnu, I think its high time for me to change my get up"
The Lord replied,"Why? Whats the problem dear. You wear expensive silk saree precious jewellery and have long hair.. You are the ideal women for people on earth.."
"Not any more", the Goddess replied taking a deep breadth.
"Last night I looked for the pending requests in my system and I was shocked to see there are no pending requests  in my inbox from ladies asking for decent husband"
"Then, Narad told me the that the time has changed. Women on earth are no longer striving for getting married. You know.. Ladies are very cool and chose comfortable get up these days."
"Narad has also told me that all ladies these days send requests related to their career. They ask for selections, promotions and increments". "Ladies want a handsome salary not a handsome man. They think, if they have a decent career there is a list of men to choose form for them"
The Lord said, "I see.. So you start showering your blessings on those men who wish to have such women as their wives."
"That too seems out of my services area", the Goddess tagged," Men no longer wish to have a wife who has long hair, wears silk saree or heavy jewelry, neither they ask for a women who can make traditional food for them or acts as just a homemaker". " They ask for a lady who earns at least 1Lakh in a month or have a government job to marry with them and my problem is such ladies do not even want to get married until they become general manager or CEO of a company".

"Time has changed and I also think we should have a makeover now. Or else there would be a day when people will stop resembling me with the most charming ladies on earth. I no longer want to have such old fashioned get up"
"Nobody wears heavy gold jewellery, i want to change these ones with platinum and diamond sets now. I would select a designer dress or may be pick one of those brushed on the Red Carpet. Instead of holding this golden pot of gold coins, I think I should hold shares of Google, Apple and facebook."
"Why don't you gift me one Ferrari, my owl would drive it. And you are not a man who has constant leg pain why should I pose serving your legs all the time."
"You also don't need to close your eyes and look around the world for people in trouble. I suggest join facebook and twitter. It had been a time you and I were asked about the things people didn't know, they make a google search and find the answer, now" "And I think, its faster" "Nobody resorts to keeping fast of 16 Fridays to find the perfect match, they register on matrimonial sites in the morning and find a perfect match by the night"
The Lord smiled and said, "Dear, change is the only thing constant I have made for the world and you are free to chose the style you like. Find a new designer and put on the new get up by the time I would arrange a new photographer to find our new pose in which you are passing on a signature card to me for my help in operating the world".

Goddess Laxmi is thinking about it..

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…
