It’s a gray morning. Another relationship has just ended and she sits alone, wondering why. Why is she always the one to leave?

When will she learn to build a bridge?

Bridges do more than to connect. They help us surmount obstacles and reach places... Read More

If anybody had to get a hindsight of who Hitler was as a leader and as a person, then learning about him through his sayings would be a flashback of terror. Most of his quotes on waging a war, leadership and governance, revolutions, and struggle are passionate, but also pugnacious. Hitler seemed to be a man defined by extremism and belligerence, which may have been a boon to the Nazi rule. As a leader, Hitler would be always remembered as a great warrior and an authoritarian for whom victory was a battle of conquest. However, most of us may know little about him as a person. Walter S. Zapotoczny’s... Read More

Historically, men have been known to act as muzzles that have prevented women’s liberation and empowerment from happening in full swing. Men have also been adduced as self-proclaimed czars who have taken away women’s privilege as their appanage. In doing so, men have often been read and remarked as mischievous, perverse, and wicked in their willful means. But not all men are same just as all women are different. Reading a man’s motives may sometimes appear tough while at other times his feelings may be as playful as a tot who sprouts in love. For many of us women, the men in our life have been... Read More

After God had created everything, he found that there was Adam only who had no partner, so he moulded Eve and he gave her to him. Today, the world is turning opposite to this God’s prescription of marriage by saying people have the right to marry people of their sex. This is called homosexuality. Homosexual marriage is the marriage that is concluded between individuals of the same biological sex. It is also called same-sex marriage and other people consider it as gay marriage. This kind of marriage that is officially and legally recognized between two persons of the same biological sex or social... Read More

It’s an age old dilemma; men and women communicate differently. From “Edith and Archie” (husband and wife duo from the 70's sitcom, All in the Family) to “Sammie and Ronne” (today’s reality “stars” from Jersey Shore), the way couples share information and relate to one another differs.

Do you remember the episode of Friends, where Rachel describes her first kiss with Ross to her gal pals? (If not, you can click this link to view: Friends). It's very different than the way Ross talks about the same kiss to his buddies. The funny scene hits a cord with most people because it's a "dead... Read More
