My Childhood Days

Getting up late, being irrational at times, mood swings, cravings for chocolates, crush of my first school teacher, telling lies, bunking classes, being punished outside class & when mathematics numerals seemed some kind of unearthly creatures....... and many more memories to remember and relish for a lifetime. Life was a roller- coaster when there were no responsibilities and commitments to fulfill. And honestly, childhood days are the best days in one's life when you make wonderful friends that remain for a lifetime.

Recalling my childhood still brings smiles and at the same time tears in my eyes as I can never get them back again. Mom's scolding for being back on time and teachers punishment for being late for every class.

Watching little kids playing in the park, and seeing how careless and unconcerned they are about the various worries of life reminds me of my childhood days. Life was full of dreams and most importantly all dreams seemed realizable. Reminiscing my old memories makes me recall a funny incident when I lit crackers on the cow’s dung and when it busted with its ‘bang’; I was all dirty from head to toe. Mom was so very upset and I was praying her to forgive me for my deed.

Eyes were filled with mischief and every moment was fun; when love meant mom’s pampering and fear meant dads scolding; when stars were approachable and sky was the limit--- those were my most unforgettable childhood days. Today I have grown up into a young girl, dreams are still realizable but with a pinch of salt in it, as I know you can’t expect them to be rewarded everytime in life.

Acceptance of Live- in relationships in India

With increasing live- in relationships in India, the Supreme Court three judge panel has agreed to the fact that there is no offence in living together. The society that has been driven with age old traditions and ethics is now changing drastically. 

I believe there will be people who will evolve with time but their would be still families that will never give the acceptance to this culture. The Times of India article on:
Live-in relationship, pre-marital sex not an offence: SC
has buzzed the culture with it's unfolding traditional values and ethics.
I personally believe that being in live- in is not wrong but our roots of origination do not permit it completely and hence you face repercussions from the society. It's a way of escaping marriage and get over with the responsibilities that it brings alongwith family commitments. The question comes here is of the children that are born to such couples as they are not getting their ancestral rights. What if the couples separates later and choose not to be together?? 
Today's live in relationships is the most comfortable relationship that youngsters want to be in as they get to live with the person they love or like probably would be the right word....
Unlike marriage, live- in do not give you any kind of security as you can walk away without undergoing the hassles of divorce which in itself is a tedious task. It's difficult to interpret as to what extent this relationship will be given weightage in India but surely with the changing time we are evolving.
It's beautiful to be with the one you love in life but then the question is how much justice you give to that love when you walk out of a relationship??
