What makes a real woman? You would randomly think of the usual female body parts. Well, sorry to disappoint you but that’s not enough. As per Indian society, womanhood depends on how domesticated a person is. At least that’s what I have gathered in my experience. Few days back, I heard my neighbour yelling at her son and saying, “ladki ki tarah sara time kitchen me baitha reh.” Now many of you would not found anything wrong. After all, cooking is a woman’s job -right? That’s what everyone has taught us. I, on the other hand, have a major problem with it- mainly because I am not too fond of cooking. A sin, many would say because I am a woman and one day I had to get married. I have always heard many things for my inability to Cook food. But it doesn’t stem from the fact that I am lazy. But only I know that how hard I have tried to prepare meals, but I don’t know why it always ended with a plate of disaster. I perceive cooking like any other activity- something you can be good at if you like it, and suck it, if your don’t . Just like any other thing like writing, painting, etc. In many opinion, it has nothing to do with gender. Yet, so far many aunties have shared their pearls of wisdom with me. According to them – if I don’t cook for my husband- to- be , it means I don’t love him. For god sake, what does love have to do with cooking? I have been always told that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. So I can’t Cook -does it mean he will not be loved back? That’s rubbish. These things give me a headache. With time our society has tried to modify it ‘s take on everything feminine.,so I also hoping it will also forgo cooking. Because my disability to cook does not make me a half wioman I am proud… Read more →

INDIA competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 5 to 21 August. A total of 117 competitors participated in 15 different sports. India got the 67th rank with only 2 medals from which one silver medal was achieved by PV Sindhi and the another one was bronze from Sakshi Malik. The Rio Olympics has ended with a disappointing medal haul for India. Despite an exceptional number of Indian athletes qualifying for the mega sports event, India returned home with a diminished medal tally compared with six medals achieved in the last Olympics. After that miserable performance, lndia was compared with several poor countries. Now, the question arises that what were the reasons behind this defeat. Whether it were the weak performances of the players or it was the ugly politics of the sports federation. As we know to win or to loose is a part of the game but it is also important to know the reasons behind it. There were many factors for this like mismanagement of sports association, absence of a sporting culture, poor adaptation with the conditions in Brazil, inadequate sports infrastructure and may be our bad luck. Most athletes are wary of pursuing their discipline professionally because of high risk and low awards. Many Indian officials treat sports like a joke. They are failed to ensure basic support for athletes who gave their all for India. A sporting culture gets established when talent is nurtured, groomed and rewarded. But India’s ugly politics use a winner only to score political points but invest nothing in nurturing them. To play a game we have to start early. But in India, there are no playgrounds, stadiums for public use. We does not even have a world class badminton stadium. Athletes who are training at the sports authority of India if got injured are insured for Rs. 150. So, how do we can expect to groom talent without facilities? India needs huge investment in infrastructure, a dedicated programme and then creating opportunities for athletes to participate in global events. Unless that happens, in spite of the best efforts athletes will keep returning without medals. The entire system needs overhauled.
