Things That Only Men Can Do

I envy the life of men sometimes. Uncomplicated by the dictates of the biological clock every month, their life is more of a cake walk. And yes it would be interesting to walk in a man’s shoes, literally.

My initial reactions to the bizarre idea brought a rather big smirk to my best friend who took this opportunity to state that like Anil Kapoor got a chance to be the C.M. for a day in the movie, she would also want to become a man for a day?
According to Biblical legends, Adam is the reason why Eve was created in the first place. In a way men did everything first and women followed the way. Yet they have been bearing the brunt for just being ‘men’ all these years. Come to think of it, they are many things that only men can do with ease.
Each time when I went to get waxing done and I think about how life is so very simple for men at least in this aspect. Men can wear chest, underarm, leg, ear, and nose hair as proudly and unapologetically as they like.
And not only this, they can also go topless whenever they please. Whether it is walking down the street or in the gym, men can get topless at the drop of a hat! On the other hand imagine a woman walking topless down the street and if you somehow manage to remove your clothes at the shot, be rest assured that you are being clicked by some perverts.
Full bladder and you want to pee, but the next washroom is two kilometers away? All that a men need to do is to step outside and pee behind a dumpster. Find some cover, unzip and go.
All the women are going to hate for this one but as far as studies go, men can hold drinks better than women. Men produce an enzyme which breaks down alcohol. So they can drink more alcohol and still enjoy more rounds while still appear sober in comparison to a

Talking about gender equality and putting it in practice is another thing all together. All these things made me understand that they are some things that only men can do. And even though the grass is always greener on the other side I would still prefer to be a woman than a man!

From One Time Friends to Full Time Strangers

Shakespeare very rightly said once that “all the world’s a stage and men and women are merely players”. So true, life is like a stage performance an ongoing production where the only permanent character is you! The rest of the cast and crew of the show keeps changing.

People come and go from your life and what remains and stays with you are the memories. Some sweet and some salty. I have never really been good with goodbyes. And neither do I ever say ‘bye’ as for this word means in simple terms ‘the end’. On a call or in form of messages I never end conversations like this.

Yet sometimes you have to let go and move ahead. It’s strange how people walk into your life and suddenly become an intrinsic part of it. Gradually from strangers you grow into becoming friends.

You share all the ups and down’s in life together; the good, the bad, the ugly… everything. Friends are the relationships you choose to uphold and keep. Unlike your parents and relatives which you cannot pick.

In a way your friends are your own little family and now when things move on and misunderstandings crop in, the only thing you can expect from ‘your family aka friends’ is that they understand you. However, if that doesn’t happen and you grow apart and the only thing that holds you together then is your bond of friendship.


Sometimes these bonds become weak and crack and in that case you again become strangers. From one time friends your back to strangers and such is the circle of life.
