Guest Post by Rubina 

There are many ladies wishing to be single forever, what is your reasoning in this regard?

 

Hhaha.. You are asking me this question 20 years too late :D. Your question made me look back and retrospect if I would have done anything different. I don’t think so. What we are today is always due to our past actions. Some make us stronger while others we either try to forget and move one or choose a different path than we would have if that incident had not taken place.

But the generation after us is different. Their wants are different, their needs are different. They have grown. I take great pride in my daughter and my son, even if I don’t agree with their viewpoint. When I was small, the topic of marriage was very prevalent in all households. Parents would start collecting things from the day a child was born. But today, it’s all about education in most of the households in big cities. I am only speaking of the social territory I associate myself with. The middle-class households.

The day I was born my mom must have wondered if I will marry a good guy and as I grew older, she must have worried if I can sustain a marriage with the ideologies I had. I too worry about my daughter. But the focus has shifted. Will she have a great career? Can she fly out of the nest? Marriage is not in the equation for me at all. So, if as a parent I have changed, how can the youngsters of tomorrow not change?

‘Roti, Kapda Aur Makaan’ (Food, Clothes, and A House) is not the worry of the menfolk alone today. Women have to think in the same way. If I tell my son, first think of building a house and then a family, I say the same thing to my daughter.

Today women are educated. Today they think a career is not an option but a necessity. Asking for Rs. 100 for shaved ice (Gola) from your husband is no more a sign of love, but dependency. But that does not mean stay- at-home moms are wrong. It’s a choice they made. I made. If it was forced on me, it would have been another story. But today, girls don’t want that choice. They want their independence. Rightfully so. And they are equipped enough to have it and until men grow up to that level, many women and a few men too would love to stay single.

I  hope you all are really enjoying her opinion   on why women want  to remind single forever  ?.

Thanks for stopping  by Guys ❤ you all .

Book Review of Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh

 

 

KNITTED TALES:

A Collection of Emotions

by

 

 

 

Blurb
 
What forces an innocent girl to become a sex symbol? Her desires? Or cruel fate? 
 
Is a lifetime enough—for avenging a betrayal? How do you hide secrets that never stopped haunting you? 
 
Can vengeance and secrets of your past devastate your present? How can long-buried crimes of yours suddenly raise their head? Can sinning be saving?
 
Is your spouse your soulmate? What if they never understood your feelings? Can you still live with them?
 
Lastly, does life give only two options? Live or die? What if there is a third?
 
 
In her debut anthology, Rubina Ramesh tries to find answers to these questions that are often from the heart and yet makes the mind ponder over the solution. Or is it the other way round? Either way, Knitted Tales is a bouquet of emotions that is bound to touch both your head and your heart.
 

                             Book Review

Knitted Tales by Rubina Ramesh  can be described by using  all the possible adjectives  available  in the english dictionary .Madame Rubina has penned  her first novel in an effective way by pointing the flaws  in our society and  in individual′s preception towards the perfect beings called F-E-M-A-L-E without having feminist kind of approach .The stories in Knitted Tales are sweet and sour .

My favorite stories are 

1.Cliff Notes : As it speaks about the authors inner frustrations to prove herself which reflects my life and  my wish to achieve something that my heart screams for ..

2.Chiclets :It gives taste of lives  American    Desi′s  who have been  living there  for years  , but still we Indians have the so-called  craziness towards THE STATES .

3.The Little GodMother : It gives an us glimpse of what is good parenting is all about .

 

All in all ,I  can say  Knitted Tales by  Rubina Ramesh is a superbly recommended book to read.
