Whats become clear to you as you’ve gotten older?

No scope for satisfactory appraisal by the employers in professional life.

Weak eyesight and some business for the opticians

Kids will start avoiding me because I will now be considered as a philosopher giving lectures and not an entertaining father.

Fifty percent off in railway tickets. A facility is in the queue but 10 more years to go.

Grey or otherwise white hairs.

Youngsters of my kid’s age will start touching my feet and seek blessings which I generally hate.

I will struggle to cope up with the pace of technology upgrades.

Typing speed will accelerate because this is the only thing which I am very much conversant.


What is the reason why people hate fat people and ugly people?

There is no reason as such but people are tempted to avoid those who are not similar to them in terms of physical beauty. Odd man out is always targeted. It depends on the upbringing, the society to which they belong, the friend circle and everything around. If the behavior is natural we can at least forgive but if they are given instructions by their parents to avoid ugly people, then it is a matter of concern.

Check the history and you will find many examples who were not good by appearances but have achieved milestones.

Here I would like to bring to your notice, there are people who don’t like the company of fat and ugly but because they are rich, they forcibly try to prove that they enjoy spending times with people who have a personality clash.

Example : Boney Kapoor tying knot with Sridevi.

Can you write a story starting with the line “One day while walking down the street, I saw a woman coming out of an ATM with a black purse.

“One day while walking down the street, I saw a woman coming out of an ATM with a black purse” I don’t know if she had withdrawn money or not but one thing I can sense, she was listening Bollywood song because I could see headphones attached to her ears and mobile in her hand., perhaps latest item number. I can make out from her facial gestures. There are possibilities it could be baby doll, munni badnaam hui, bano tera swagger but I was not sure. To gather courage and enquire about her choices of songs was out of the question because I generally don’t speak to lovely ladies who are beautiful and also a stranger to me. If they don’t respond I would be making a mockery of myself so better avoid such interaction.

She stood at the bus stop which was close to the ATM center. Suddenly a Honda city arrived and gentlemen offered her lift and she, without any hesitation stepped in and VANISHED FROM MY LIFE. This was THE END of our short meeting where we both were deaf and dumb but not blind. We saw each other but did not utter a single word. Such is life diaries. Thanks for reading.

How do I deal with dominating people?


If the family members are dominating you ( I refer to parents) you cannot do anything about this. Accept the fate and move ahead. This may be their nature. There are parents who think they sacrificed their lives for the well being of the children, struggled, faced financial problems and lived a troubled life for the growth of their children. Such parents may dominate their kids and we can only have sympathy for them. There are chances over the period of time when the children are grown up, the parents will understand their mistakes and live a peaceful life in future. Such children have just to wait for the good times.


Give it back what they deserve. If your boss is dominating you, remain quiet for some days. Hunt for a new job and on the ’D’ day glorify (thrash) him in front of his seniors. This would be the best ending you give to your employment with the company.

What is the best response when someone keeps staring at you?

Considering the person staring at me is a female, here I respond courageously:

If she is an ugly and old foe of mine who ditched me years ago, I would prefer staring back at her thinking about the pot holes on the road, gutter, debris etc.

If she is beautiful (although I don’t intend to try her), I would admire her as if she is the undiscovered wonder of the world, Taj Mahal, Kohinoor etc. By looking at her, I would probably get ideas and inspiration to pen down my new romantic poem.

How do parents deal with their passive agressive children?

The best way to help them come out of this situation is to allow them to mingle with others. Passive aggressive children live in pains and they generally don’t open up with the people around. This is very critical. Such a situation may weaken them psychologically.

I would suggest such parents maintain healthy relations with the neighbors and as a result, their kids get the opportunity to interact with the next door kids. Play with those kids, chat with them and get engaged in activities which create a friendly environment in their surroundings. The more talkative they become, the less they will be harmed. They will stop thinking aggressively. Sweet smiles, fun, jokes and healthy atmosphere is all needed for such children.
