Yes...You Hold The Distinction

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 12, 2013

...the rules of the game here of this world. With the arrogance of self proclamation, people try to write-off genuine concern. Who the hell are those who talk so loudly about humanity under the draconian practices and belief? It sucks me to see the outrageous hypocrisy over the issues like domestic violence and marital discord. Many with no fault of their own are receiving a raw deal from the life and on top of that, an incendiary evaluation with heinous strictures by the society makes things worse for them.

By D. Sager, published on Dec 15, 2011

Part 1: Miscarriage Of Justice

By Lumiere, published on Mar 6, 2011

My phone rang as I stood in line waiting to get a cup of coffee with my mom, it was my ex, Williams calling. I decided not to pick up, to do so would violate the court order put into place in February 16th, 2011 that was now seperating us like the great wall of China. The wall dividing our hearts and our lives was there for a reason, and out of disgust I really did not want to speak to Williams, much less hear the sound of more lies and deception. Although curious as to why my ex was calling, I was not willing to go to jail for 7 years over a phone call and childish games. I had endured enough... (more)

Doing Right By My Sons

By LiftingMeUp, published on Sep 13, 2010

I am a woman.

And I am a mother.

A mother of boys.

I need them to grow up to be men.

I need them to learn from their mother how to be men.

One day you will stop being my babies.

You will walk out of my arms.

Into the arms of another.

You will walk into manhood.

Into adulthood.

With all the wisdom I could possibly have given you.

I need you to know how to fend for you yourself.

How to read and write.

How to speak and communicate.

How to feel and be understood.

How to understand and be felt.

By Barkha Dhar, published on Sep 3, 2010

Marriage is an entity of benign omens and configurations made in the heaven, performed on the earth. It’s a gracious threshold to unification of two souls and of two families. As a prime religious ceremony, its zenith lies in a father’s courage to give away his piece of heart, his daughter in a poised and sacred alliance to another man as her better half. Also known as “Kanya daan” in Hindu wedding, it’s the father of the bride that offers his daughter for marriage on a promise that the groom shall perform his duties as a husband according to the vedic(religious) hymns recited during the ceremony.... (more)
