What is the size of your tummy? Do you gorge or binge? Gorging makes you eat eat and eat until you are satisfied!But binge?You binge only when you feel low.What do you do?

To be very clear, gorging is overloading.This is to fill your stomach with whatever you love to eat that can also cause a visit to the esteemed physicians.But binge-ing takes you to a psychotherapist.

It was last Sunday when I had to join my cousin’s birthday party .What a wonderful treat she had arranged –all yummy dishes —Indian and Continental !But most of the guests were very particular about their diets. I also had to respect my age as the body would not let you gorge!If you do so the very next day you would have to fix an appointment with your doctor.But a few were there who believed in the present and never worried about the future.So they gorged and gorged ,rather a competition was held and prizes were distributed by the host.It was a good fun,yet the consequences were not unknown.The winner had to take sick leave from his work for a week and had to to take an oath not to act on a whim.Despite his medical insurance he could not maintain a dignified silence over the expenditure he had to bear apart from the physical torture.

But binge -ing is more fatal than gorging. If you binge,you have a guilty feeling. You are concerned about your growing weight .You are forbidden to eat typical carbo-food like ice-cream,bread,chocolate,cookies ,doughnuts,potato chips ,popcorn,pizza or sandwiches,yet you binge followed by purging. You try to get rid of the excessive food you have gobbled. Vomiting and diarrhea are the two types of self-induced purging. Another way of purging is doing excessive exercise.When you are apprehensive of obesity ,you do excessive exercise.But that is not the remedy.Your mental instability has to be checked up and a psychotherapist has to be consulted

Why not be careful about your big tummy?Try to maintain a balanced lifestyle that can cure you of all this gorging and binge-ing.

Can Sundays be Fun -days?

7 Jul

You must have heard about Monday blues, but what about Sundays,especially for the working lot? Can it be a Fun day for them? Let me check.

Come Sunday and you are loaded with the requests for variety of yummy dishes from your better half and the little monsters who are chatty, catty and naughty from the morning to night as long as they feel exhausted and go to sleep.

The day is especially for those who wish to meet you after a long time. Again the tap in your washroom is leaking and the plumber has promised to do it on Sunday as he is busy with his permanent job on the other days. He would never miss to earn his extras on holidays.

What about the heaped up clothes? Are you ready to sort them out ? Many of them need to be discarded as you are no more the sweet sixteen. Despite your gym and treadmill your waist size has lost its glamorous 34 or 32 .Now you have to look for at least 36 or 38 and the kids also are growing up like the tall Bamboo trees .And the pot- bellied man of the house?He has asked you not to buy anything for him. He himself would visit the shop to fit his tummy! So no worries for him.

Now Week-end amusement! Either you have to go to the mall and watch movies to please your better-half or wheedle your whipper-snappers not to create scenes in the public.

Thus Sundays go kaput.Be prepared to face the Monday blues once more.

Are you a trendsetter?

Are you a trendsetter?

Are you trailing in a world of google-eyed go-getters trapped in the rat race?Did you ever try to run away from the crazy twists and turns of your life to find refuge in the dark cool shade of some mysterious phenomena that is not known to many of us?This means you must be trying to be a trendsetter who independently creates some ideas that do not get down to the real nitty gritty of the day-today life and others start following them.

It was my grandson’s birthday and I wished to gift him a new jeans pant.When I went to shop to buy one for him ,I found that all the pants had holes and patches.I was in a fix.I asked the salesman what was wrong with the shop.Is the shop infected with rats as we are in a rat race?

“Gosh! Ma’am please don’t make a comment like that . I would lose my job,Ma’am.This is the latest trend ,Ma’am.Wherever you go, you would find the same.”was the reply.

I felt I should be jailed for not staying updated. But how can I forget the trendsetter who had this innovative idea of holes and patches on the pant so that rats would be able to hide in straight inside the lower part of your body? But yes he or she whoever had the idea is really commendable for his or her marketing policy.Later I came to know that those who had sound jeans pants without holes were going to the tailors to cut holes on their pants,though making big holes in their pockets. Wow and the tailors were in the seventh heaven!

Jokes apart take the example of one of my friends who felt she was wasting her life without doing something for the society. She became a trendsetter by cooking different dishes to feed the poor children . She started supplying the food to the orphanages ,to the schools that were meant for the poor children.She became very popular and many of her friends started following her and this became a global cause to help the poor.

Another of my very close friends raised her voice against the torture done to the poor women by their husbands.She started an organisation that ran schools for the illiterate women and also taught them how to earn their livelihood by joining cottage industry.

To sum up a trendsetter must have the guts to meet the challenges that come on his or her way . You cannot restrict yourself to get noticed and to be popular by your creative ideas. You should also do some good to the society . And that’s the real meaning of being a trendsetter!

What would you like to be –trendy or nerdy?
