10 Ways to Become a Perfect Indian Bahu

In case you are not aware of the qualities that qualify you for being a perfect bahu in Indian families, here’s your guide. Learn and imbibe them by your heart and earn a badge of Perfect Sanskaari Bahu for free!

1.       Wake up Early

Working professional or a ‘house-wife’ as they say, you MUST wake up early, wear a decent salwar suit with a bindi, sindoor and lipstick and make chai for everyone after doing Durga Maa ki Pooja.

2.       Cook Lavish Food for Everyone

It’s time you realise your superpowers. You aren’t just a woman – you’re a Superwoman. A perfect Indian bahu cooks favorite food for everyone in the family. The cuisine may vary from South Indian to North Indian or even Continental at times, but remember what your mother used to say before your marriage, “Beta, dil ka rasta pet se ho ke jata hai”. Go learn every dish ever known to the mankind.

3.       NEVER ask for the ‘Me-Time’ with your Husband

He is your husband later, and a son and brother first. Don’t act mean and ask for a walk when your husband is sitting with your in-laws. In all probabilities you would earn great respect from your in-laws.

4.       You must have Educational Degrees but no will to work

       Work after marriage is not considered a good virtue if you are planning to become a perfect bahu. This however doesn’t mean you shouldn’t earn those educational degrees – you must keep them safe and laminated in a good-quality folder.

5.       Unless it is a Government Job

 Because OMG, government jobs are best for our women.

6.       You should be FAIR. Like, VERY FAIR.

 Both in your demeanor and skin tone. No compromise on this at all. Go buy a Fair 'n' Lovely today.

7.       And long hair is a bonus.

      Short hair won’t win you those extra marks. If you have really long hair, don’t go for a haircut, even if you can’t manage those locks.

8.       Cover your head in the presence of father-in-law

      When sasur ji is in the home, or sasur ji’s brother, friend, neighbor, uncle, you dare not keep your head uncovered. You would probably loose all the marks you have earned till now.

9.       Parties = Family Functions

      What is the fun without family members? Family should be your first love, so whenever the feeling of a crazy booze party with your friends cross your mind, immediately shun the thought, pick out your heavy embroidered saree and get ready to attend tilak ceremony of your husband’s bua ka beta.

10.   Be P.E.R.F.E.C.T in all the things you do

Knitting, sewing, cleaning, cooking, dressing, talking, walking, speaking, sleeping, coughing, sneezing. Just aim for perfection and the day is near when your in-laws would proudly call you a perfect daughter-in-law.

P.S: I hope you understand the true intent of this post.

When She Danced to the Raaga

She stood stiff, with her neck buried into her piano, just the way a cow grazes the grass. She believed this way, she can bring her mind closer to the task and concentrate fully. Her fingers moved like undersized waves that ebb and flow recklessly into a sea. The black and white keys, the notes and half-notes blow some syncopated music that she could dance to. She so wanted to! But she concentrated to get the Malkaush Raag right.

Some music begins to flow into the room like maple leaves fall in Ontario- soft, and bronze red.

“Guru ji says this music releases some sort of nourishing energy”- she chuckled without looking up at him.

“Nourishing energy? Umm… like some soul stirring?”- he enquired.

“Soul-stirring. Yes. This raag is believed to have been created by Goddess Parvati to sooth Shiva when He was outraged and would not calm down...after Tandav...and…”

She resumed her attention on the Arohana notes. She just slipped her hand from Komal Ga to Shuddh Pa. "Pa is completely omit…

You won’t believe Who Would be Watching ‘Bahubali-2’ Even Before its Worldwide Release!

Movie buffs in India are eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ but guess it’s the Queen Elizabeth II of UK who would watch it first. Reports have it that Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ will be screened in UK a day prior to its worldwide release. 
The British Film Institute will showcase Indian films as a part of Indian Film program from April till December and Baahubali has made the cut to be screened to mark 70 years of India’s independence. If sources are to be believed, not just Queen Elizabeth II but PM Modi would also be among the first ones to know “Katappa ne Bahubali ko kyu maara”. He is likely to attend the screening on 27th April, i.e., one day before its worldwide release – but no official statement has been declared.
With a budget of Rs. 150 crores, Baahubali is the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema.  It is a sweeping epic that glues the audience for straight 2 hours and 40 minutes, with our mouths wide open to the gr…

3 Reasons Why Not Wearing a Bra is sometimes the BEST Feeling in the World

As insane as it may sound, but women are ALWAYS in a love-hate relationship with their bras. They would be very choosy about the size, make and color. Every morning, they would meticulously choose which one to wear that complements their dress; but this dear feeling would soon vanish as the day advances. Through this post, I’m trying to list down the reasons why women love to hate their bras that they happily cling on to on a daily basis.

   .Just Letting Them Breathe For it is the basic and fundamental right of any being. Yes, boobs are beings and women feel the urge to unwind and let them breathe, for breathe they must. So when the days are heavy and you can’t take the cruelties of the world anymore, remember to unhook

  2.   To Avoid that Stabbing Feeling

Men would never understand the feeling of something constantly stabbing their chest and shoulders. Women would agree that however comfortable bra they wear, it can sometimes sting the body (padded and wired ones specially are kille…
