Liberated women...

The liberation of women,liberated woman...what does this mean . who liberated women,how were they inhibited? and what describes a liberated woman..?WHO IS A LIBERATED WOMAN?
i dont really know where these thoughts came from..maybe it was the recent doctor's debate on whether there is gender bias in the field of medicine..or maybe it was my stepping into the world of being a post graduate and thinking abt my life ahead..kids marriage and all..
and is it really restricted to women..liberation..?
i think men women adults alike are inhibited and thus have scope for liberation...only children,that too really young children are truly liberated..
liberation is not what u say ,or wear or drink and smoke..liberation is not about doin your own thing.. liberation is more mental ,and in the mind.... and believe me we have a looong way to go when it comes to liberation ..and that applies to the men of the world as well...

Birthday retrospect : potential energy versus Kinetic energy

A few weeks back I tried to enrol my name for a Leadership program which was looking for ‘people with potential leadership qualities’, when my application was rejected.

But on further retrospection, I realised , they weren’t saying I was too old to become a leader, but were saying that If I had the ‘potential’, then at my ripe old age of 33 I should be well on my way of becoming a leader. And on that note begins my this year’s birthday retrospect. I would like to call it my ‘pre mid life crisis ‘ birthday retrospect. It was triggered by the word ‘potential’. It took me back to my high school physics; potential energy and Kinetic energy. Potential energy is the energy that is stored within, it can be  a ball held at a height above the ground, or an object being pulled on an elastic string like an arrow, or a stone in a sling. The more taut the string on the bow is, the further the arrow will travel that is the t…

mommy mood swings: A boys love for cars

Mommy mood swings : boys and cars, perpetuating a stereotype? 
He used to call them gree, may be because I used to call 'car - gadhi ' while we went on stroller rides. His favourite book was an atlas , with vehicles like planes and cars . Till 18 months he had no screen time, and on his 18 month he was crying inconsolably in the car when his uncle / maamu showed him a video of wheels on the bus. That moment , sitting in the car, driving from Palvolem to Margao, my son fell head over heels in love with the rhyme. We have heard it for 6 months straight now, everyday all day sometimes. For a vehicularly challenged mom it is amazing and amusing for me to see him tossing in his sleep saying ' purple car, red double decker bus' and no one has ever said " green garbage truck" with such love and affection.
I have always been very vocal about Gender equality and while I grew up never being denied or forced to take up on any particular gender activity, being pregnant ha…
