What is life without a little fun n pun? We have different takes and viewpoints, our philosophy is moulded by the trials and triumphs we go experience. Let’s share our original thoughts, uplifting and dark.

Simple, functional, low-cost homes

In the far-flung North-eastern parts of India, the homes are simpler, more cost-effective and fully functional…..the exact structure varies according to the tribe and region. In Manipur, the homes are built with locally available materials and are placed on stilts of wood. The stilts have at least 2 advantages—-the livestock live under the home and the uneven landscape is tackled in the best manner. At the back of the home, a washroom is used for bathing, with fenestrations in the wooden floor, for the water to drain  to the ground bellow. The homes have a fireplace and sleeping areas, depending on the needs of the household. The vegetables are stored at the back of the home, in the open….

Human interaction

In the assumably ‘less privileged’ strata of society, we see more of children outdoors, interacting with and playing with each other. It helps them to:

  • Enjoy the spare time they have
  • Be more tolerant
  • Learn social skills( strangely, ‘social’ media makes us more anti-social!!)
  • Forge bonds of long-lasting friendships
  • Improve general health and fitness (mental and physical)
  • Learn the art of negotiation
  • Get Vit D
  • Share information
  • Enjoy mother nature
  • Stay safe, away from the ?? radiation of cell phones and gadgets
  • Enjoy human company and gain confidence
  • Avoid whining and being bored

The outdoors await…..

Does social media encourage ‘Sharing’ –the new ‘Bragging’???

We are all guilty of showcasing the best of us, our family and pets…

Social media sites have only one agenda…shameless self-promotion, to gain investors and advertisers, to make more money. We are drawn into the web of social interaction, groups, culture, networking….which can be wonderful and positive (for the most part), but it is really an unintended ‘side-effect’ of social media which makes us happy.

How do we brag?

We mutually ‘share’………the best of our

  • Pictures
  • Places we visit
  • Professional victories
  • Children’s pics and achievements
  • Dishes we cook
  • Parties we host
  • Pets we adore
  • Poems/ stories
  • Food/ drink we enjoyed
  • Books we read
  • Movies we watch
  • Fun times
  • Clothes/ cars/ shoes/material goods we bought

The list is endless….where we went, who we went with, what we did…..others politely ‘like’ and comment, so that we will reciprocate!!!!

We turn away from a needy relative, a bawling child, a hungry pet, a bored spouse………to connect with our ‘awesome, gorgeous’ BFFs.

Do we speak of the criticism for a job done badly? A sullen child? A Disgruntled spouse? An opportunistic friend? …if we do, we should not, because in the chatter of a million voices, nobody really cares!!!

It’s all worthwhile if we have enough time to spend in the real world with real people………..if we talk about real problems, even if just once in a while…………..

Nobody can admire you, your family, work, talent, qualities, home, country, more than you and those around you…………

Enjoy the virtual media, it’s the best vice we have 🙂

People classified by website responses

When I started the website, it was on a whim…..the child made it, linked it to FB, G plus, Twitter etc etc. 

What 3 years have taught me about people :

There are the

  • Generous appreciators who try to find something good to say about a blog
  • Skeptics who feel I have something to gain
  • Boycotters who shun it completely as they are too good to read something penned by a novice
  • Intellectuals who add to my knowledge
  • Friends who read it because they know me and like me!!! ( yes, it was a shock to me too that such people exist)
  • Lurkers who  talk to me about it when we meet socially —without ever having visited it
  • Encouragers who inspire me to write

Google has placed 3 advertisements !!!!!! This was the ambition and dream with which I began ( I am clueless as to why I wanted it!!!!) …..now that it is done, I shall discontinue it and write another book…..
