Life of a Girl - Fantasy Meets Reality

Girls are always associated with beautiful baby dolls that are outstandingly created by artists. Since childhood they learn to live in the world of fantasy where dolls like Barbie, Hannah Montana, and Dora become their role model. They follow their fairy tales and stories through which they bind themselves along the way to life. Cuddly appeal, touch of beauty, and softness of the world is all girls look around.

Life like a baby doll is what girls aspire. But do they really get through these fantasies? Should they truly be given the freedom to live into the world of fantasy?

No, my friend!

Peep into the old Indian tradition and you'll realize that nothing has changed despite of so much advancements and improvements in technology. Years ago girls were ill-treated, considered inferior to boys, and were also tagged to be a 'burden on the family'. Over a period of time, everything started changing but its distressing to state that the fate of girls still remains the same.

Today gladly globalization and liberalization have opened a huge gateway for girls to explore the world with lucrative opportunities but even then they are not given the freedom to live their life as what they aspire and expect. However, Government rules and actions against injustice to girls have become very supportive but my friends, how many of us really follow those?

When a girl child is born in the family, the first question that storms in every mind is 'ladka kyun nahi hua'. Tell me my friend how does it actually makes a difference. Whether a girl or a boy, both are God's blessings. Infact blessing a family with a girl child is God's own way of gifting the world's biggest pleasure to your family. Trust me having a girl child cuddled tight in your arms creates a strong emotional repsonse, it creates does!

Girls in the world of fantasy love and nurture their dolls with warmth and care. As they grow up they embrace the same motherly feeling for their younger siblings. Further on the journey of life they bid adieu to their parents and happily embrace the new world of people, new responsibilities, and the new change of life.

In the entire journey from childhood to womanhood she goes up and down on every sea saw of life. As a daughter, as a sister, a mother, a wife, and further more, all she is doing is sacrificing her own desires, expectations, and life to fulfill the needs of her own people, people who make her world. Though today there are many families who have granted the freedom of life to girls but even then there are certain situations where the old beliefs and customs still revolves around a girl's life. At every stage her world of fantasy shatters down and every time one hard blow hits her, one piece of her fascinating world flows away with the stormy waves of life. Every time her hopes shatters her dreams break but her life still flows.....

Look around you and you'll find many live examples of such false fairy tales where fantasies never turn out to be real. How long will girls live in the nutshell of aspiring a life like a baby doll? How long they'll continue to live a life of fascination? It's time my friends, come out of the fairy tales and live the real life...a life that is harder than we can think of and tougher than we can fight.

But one thing is for a crossroad where fantasy will meet reality; endurance, tolerance, patience, and the determination to win over life's challenges will shake hands with you. You don't have to invite them, they come without a call or an invitation...Its the truth of life.

Just move on and live your life your way!

The Incredible Story of My Friend – My Angel

We all talk about friendship and friends but do we exactly know what friendship is, what friends are? Does anyone know the hidden meaning behind the term ‘Friendship’? Has anyone ever explored the depths of a friend’s heart? If yes, only then we can happily sustain and live this eternal relationship.

As for me, my friend is my angel, someone who makes my life meaningful and colorful. In his own imaginative ways he spreads love and radiance to my life. As he walks in the open doors of my life, all the ill spirit starts moving out the door. With this, all the darkness disappears, making my days full of life and my life full of light.

By light I just don’t refer to his glowing face or an aura surrounding his face but to the real radiance that comes from within. As I explore the depth of his heart I get to know him better and I find the world within. Pack of values and virtues fill his heart with traces of love, concern, kindness, humanity, generosity, compassion, and courage.  His heart looks like a canvas with a beautiful picture that portrays an angelic being. And the best part is that to discover the depth of his heart you don’t need to take a ride within but just a peep into his eyes that is always sparkling with love.

When the bright sun burns me he becomes a tree to protect me from the burning sensation, during the chilling winter morning he keeps me closer to the warm light of his heart, in despair he becomes my hope, in sorrow he becomes my smile, and in joy he becomes my companion. He masters an art of transforming ordinary days to extraordinary days and knows the magic to convert tears to smiles. In all forms in all ways he makes my life magnificent.

That’s what my friend is, my beautiful angel!!! And yours?

Do you really think they are with you in all the walks of life? Do they stand beside you even in the thundering storm? Or they walk out when the entire world walks out? You have your answers, so ask yourself and then decide who your friend is…
