A Friend in Need is A Friend iNDeed

Well, all of us must have heard about this saying which helps us identify our true friends and also helps in keeping away from false friends. This I believe is probably the real sense of this saying. Isn't that? However, in most friendship examples I find this saying inspiring a different sense of friendship. 

Instead of waiting for the hard time to judge the loyalty and sincerity of friends, people have started making friendship with only those who can serve them in need. For example,I remember when I was a child, someone who had a car in our society was a friend of most people. The car owner uncle and his family was invited at everyone's party. The car owner was greeted with morning/evening wishes by most others. In short, everybody wanted to be a friend of the one who has a car so that they can ask for their car when in need. Now, if the car owner does not refuse to give his car to others in need, he is a good friend; else, not. Because we know that a friend in need is a friend indeed. 

The case remains same  in college where all the people coming to college by their own bikes have a really long list of friends, both boys as well as girls. Out of that long list of friends, most are in need of bike someday or the other, and ask their bike owner friend to lend their bike. So, if the bike owner boy does not refuses to give his bike to those in need, he is a good friend; else, not. Because of the same guideline. 

Thanks to reliance jio that calls and data are affordable now, otherwise I remember how friends used to ask for our phones to make an urgent call and check where you are a friend indeed or not. Though we still have things ranging from nailpaint to eyeliner, tops to earrings and handbags to belts which can be asked from a friend in need to judge whether you are a friend indeed. 

Despite everything, friendship has no perfect guideline or rule to follow. People who are not our relatives but are liked by us are our friends. We enjoy their company, we can share our feelings with them, we understand them and they also understand us. Your friend may not be your brother, sister, father mother, cousin, uncle, anty or life partner but he or she can definitely make you feel no absence of any of these. 

Friendship is divine. I don't deny that a friend in need is a friend indeed, but I truly criticize making friends just because of the things they own and can lend us. Those who do so are friend with greed!

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…
