tHIs pLACe iS jINXEd!!!

A non believer in vastu or superstitions, I am more of aΒ  Karma (deeds) believer.

We moved to a new office with an amazing location, where our office faces the lake and we are surrounded with greenery which makes the location lovely. But then from the time we moved into the new office, weird things have started occurring to each team member and the team.Β  Initially we were like, its just another incident and it does happen to people.Β  But then in a span of 1 month some very strange incidents have taken place & I have started to wonder what is it?

Started with my events going completely flop( which is very unlikely). Then my cell crashed, after that I lost my wallet, I fell in the bathroom of my new home the very first night and hurt my back real bad, then my documents go missing, and then the latest one in the kitty, someone flicked my 1 month 15 days old cell phone from my purse when I was standing in the parking lot of my office waiting for the rain to stop pouring to go home. Well I seriously have started feeling that there’s something jinxed about this office!

sTereoTypeS…..

Individuals that we are and the unique identity that each one of has, we live with our own set of thoughts and principals in life. But we still fall in some or the other category of people! Let me throw some light when I say ‘category of people’…Music lovers, Art admirer, avid bloggers :P, sports & adventure enthusiasts etc…And some where or the other deep inside we are judges and critics as well……We judge people as if we are perfectionists, we criticize movies, views, technology, book under the pretext of reviewing or analyzing them. Of course we are educated enough and have the exposure, understanding and intelligence/brains to decide what’s good, bad or worse!

This is what we are in the web 2.0 era. But then there was a time when we had to abide by the societal norms, a set of right and wrong things, a certain parameter which defined good or evil, virtuous or iniquitous….A few instances…

  • till some 10 years ago, it was believed that kids who stood 1st to 3rd in the class were intelligent and would go on to have bright future
  • Only doctors, engineers, teachers were supposedly the best profession one could land up in
  • For a woman the best career option was being a teacher, as she could take care of the family and also contribute to the finance
  • Love marriage was not acceptable
  • talking about sex was a taboo and so was live-in-relationship
  • Married life can only be successful or blissful if you marry the person of your religion and caste

Well if I have to list down the things, they would go on and on. I have come across many people or instances where people who have not fallen into the above mentioned category have done really well in life…I know of few of my classmates, friends, seniors and juniors in school and colleges who always excelled in class and today are either married and are homemakers or have landed in sad jobs. A few years back I had this thing stuck in my mind, guys who smoke, do drugs or booze are ‘bad guys’, I shouldn’t be friends with them. But then when I shed that mindset and mingled with guys who indulge in all of it din’t make them any less worthy as human beings…Its just that at times we are thick and want to believe what we think is correct because we are conditioned to believe or think that way!

Another category of stereotypes is guys who are flirts, playboys…”I hate it when a guy calls a girl who has not given him her number” was my funda.Β  Many girls like me jump to this conclusion that a flirtatious guy can never be committed. True to a great extent! And I also have an instance to quote…A friend of mine got a call in such a way and the guy turned out to be a complete jack A**…..And I also have a friend who is married to a guy who apparently was a playboy and today he is the most loyal and dotting hubby a girl would want.

Well there are many such inhibitions that we need to shed. Many times I wonder why are there certain things we know are not logical, but yet to please may be our parents, people or the society follow it!

What’s your perception of Beauty?

I always wondered and my jaw dropped every time I saw beautiful models on print ads, TV commercials, magazines, billboards, hoarding etc…And one thought that always crossed my mind was, God must have spent hours creating them…..

But then of course that thought was a part of my growing up years…..As I stepped out of my degree college and got into my masters and chose to get into advertising – Public relations, it involved a lot of on ground activities for advertising, which was inclusive of creatives, analysis, marketing & packaging strategy etc….Of course it was fun and an amazing experience….

Here was when I had my first encounter with what I would call ‘revelation’…..Facial make up is synonym to beauty in the world of advertising….Ok just to give a glimpse of what I just mentioned..

courtesy youtube

Well this ad is so true and well made…This ad has won two grand pix awards at Cannes this year. A Unilever product, this ad is a part of thier on-going Dove for real beauty campaign. This ad was shot in Toronto, Canada by Ogilvy and Mather

We get so carried away by the synthetic beauty that keeps hitting our eyes that we forget that we are surrounded with beauty all day long, in forms of moms, sisters, friends, wife, girlfriends, niece etc. Every woman is beautiful in her own way. Well I am not a feminist here…..but then I keep hearing guys say this..”Wow man, she is so hot, she is such an eye candy, she is so sexy, she is maal yaar, sexy thing yaar, wish I could take her to bed for once”, that’s not appreciating beauty, its demeaning it! I mean appreciating beauty and admiring it is completely acceptable, but then who on earth has given rights to guys to tag girls in categories of beauty!

NO WONDER OUR PERCEPTION OF BEAUTY IS SO DISTORTED!
