Charity on the Go


Etiquette – A generous guy and gal always gives charity in monetary form.

Etiquettes and generosity are interlinked, aren’t they? Well, charity is not always explained on the recipient’s side. Especially the charity in monetary form. Charity on the go is even more dangerous. You see a small poor girl and just donate her a Rupee or two. But, if you actually want to help them, then instead of donating money, make them aware of the power of education. Make them self-reliant rather than beggars. And if you want to go a step further teach them for an hour or two. Buy them books, convince the parents to send their children to schools.

In short support education not begging.  

Feminine Etiquettes


The title is apt to say it loud,” Maari Chorriyan Kya Chorron Se Kamm Hain” (Girls are equal in ability to boys). Treat them equal, give them wings and they will fetch the stars for Nation. We cannot ignore females in our quest to emerge as a Super-power. Actually we were powerful when the women walked shoulder to shoulder with the men. And fell when the women was hid behind the “Purdah”. Barring the women from entering religious places, not giving them access to education will only serve the patriarchal interests and harm the Nation. Shackles of Feminine etiquettes need to break for creating a balance in society.
