Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 43- Honour Killing

Posted on

Honour Killing

Women carry tradition more fiercely than men,

They cling to it like anything, to please men or their clan, whatever.

Make it a purpose of their life to carry it over the generation to generation.

Well, it’s my opinion. Though things are changing, some villages still carry on with old traditions, at any cost.

After her husband died, she had raised her son with so much difficulty and he paid for her love like this, by marrying a girl from other religion?

Had her son told her beforehand that he was going to marry a girl from other religion, she could have been able to deter him, knowing how strict their clan was. There already were some cases of honor killing.

But, no, he had to come with her after marrying her in some other place.

After her husband died, she had raised him with so much difficulty and he paid for her love like this.

Calmly she had welcomed him, decorated his room, two glasses with milk and that was that. 

She herself dug their grave and buried them.

Now her son can’t leave her, lying calmly in her backyard. No one asked her anything. No police case or inquiry.

The whole village knew but they kept mum.

Wasn’t it for the honour of their society. 

Was it jealousy or love for tradition?  

Marrying a girl from their own religion had been a different thing. 

Then she could have a hold on her DIL, she was afraid of the girl from another religion, she may try to snatch her son with her love.

Mumbai Monsoon

Posted on

There was heavy rainfall last week,  rains have reduced, still on and off they come with vengeance in heavy bouts. It’s cloudy with strong winds blowing.  On Marine Drive its an occasion for the selfie lovers who in spite of the warning from the police department taking selfies DANADAN with pouts without inhibitions.

Long live Mumbaiyaas and their un-daunting spirit.

We are enjoying rains here which is scarce in Visakhapatnam.I’m also busy with my phone taking shot after shot.

Nurturing Thursday- Teachings

Posted on

Written for Becca’s Nurturing Thursdays

“Solitude is used to teach us how to live with other people. Rage is used to show us the infinite value of peace. Boredom is used to underline the importance of adventure & spontaneity. Silence is used to teach us to use words responsibly. Tiredness is used so that we can understand the value of waking up. Illness is used to underline the blessing of good health. Fire is used to teach us about water. Earth is used so that we can understand the value of air. Death is used to show us the importance of life.” ~ Paolo Coelho

What is Cholesterol?

It’s a waxy substance that travels through the blood, helping the body and keeping our arteries clear, but there is a good and bad cholesterol.

This is a review of a book I read The Cholesterol Solution Guide it was very helpful it will tell you more about what cholesterol is, so that you are aware of the need to reduce your Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), bad cholesterol levels and increase the High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), or good cholesterol levels.

LDL is considered the bad plaque accumulation…
