Envision the world where individuals have brought a vast change in themselves and not forcing others to change.

The initial step is to change yourself- See how simple it is. It’s far superior to transforming another person. The most amusing thing today is that we say that our brain is not in our control and we attempt to control others psyches and identities. Doesn’t that sound senseless

201212042d5wayssocial.aN3

Let’s talk about Ladies Safety! Regard Women. Men of India have been taught to show superiority over women. This fact makes a big impact on the minds of young ones. So, people have to foster capable individuals by having a strong and very positive influence on the kids, on the next generation. The young ones have to be taught to respect women, to uphold what is right and what is humane. Rather than showing them a picture of suppressing women, dominating over women, they have to be taught that women must be respected otherwise their families will never grow and develop. Where women are not respected there that land never develops.

Moreover, each young lady ought to have the Right to Live, Right to Education and Right to Marry (no respect executing).

Let us look at another issue- Debasement in India. How many of us are confronting the challenge of demonetization and it’s after effects? I think no one can escape that situation. But to actualize the dream of the big leaders of India, we need to go through such painful times. However harsh the reality is, once we face it, it gives us immense power to regenerate that old spirit in us and rekindles the hope of winning. To win is very important in life, otherwise, we would never be able to help our society grow and will allow the negative forces to take possession of our bodies which would eventually harm others.  It will be a sin committed by us then.

Good governance is the need of the hour. Many people are critics of the present government. But they have forgotten that even previous governments were not deserving of appreciation and acknowledgment. So why catch hold of just one person or his government. What is the use? Rather, we should be encouraged to do our best and bring the best government through our wise decisions during the election time. that is the peak time when we should work on deciding the best for our country, but we are actually not executing our responsibilities. Then why do we expect our government to be responsible?

It is needless to say humanitarian work and service to all our citizens is immensely required.  If it comes to the elderly people, we need to begin by deciding the correct age of retirement for the government officials and take care of them properly. The scene is just the reverse in the present times. For their own pensions, the elderly have to run up and down.

Then the black money has to be curbed and the new inflow of black money has to be blocked. There is an urgent need for stringent laws and regulations. Their strict implementation is very essential.

Population control can never be neglected. It is an issue that needs further study, research, and solutions. Proper framing of the laws again is the need of the time. seepage and sewage are the two most important entities to be worked at with full vigor. Broken streets and potholes have to be covered up with concrete material. Drinking water facilities have to be improvised. The agrarian economy has to be boosted with all kinds of development. The power supply is yet another daily requirement which has to be secured for the general public.

Reservation in government jobs is a menace or a boon, it has to be resolved now. The ratio of police to the people is ought to be balanced. It has an imbalance ratio at present all over the country. Regulation of greenery cannot be done away with.  Apart from these issues, poverty alleviation and housing program for the poor requires complete support. For this and other issues, moral values need to be inculcated in the Indians, which they have forgotten.

And all this needs a perfect administration. It will channelize the energy of youth in the right direction and will give them appropriate employment opportunities. then comes the issue of utilization of renewable energy like wind, water, and solar energy.

Coming back to the government, a thorough investigation needed to be done on the improper use of government facilities by the government officials. Al the luxuries of such people have to be checked and controlled. Even the legislators have to check the language used. They might use derogatory language. More issues to be dealt with are – discrimination on any basis, hunger alleviation program using 1098, growth and development of smaller cities.  Then, all the street creatures must be protected. Technological advancement has to be worked upon urgently.

The courtrooms are filled therefore mobile courts or courts that provide immediate solutions are required. The mental makeup of the Indians which is usually the “Chalta hai” attitude, that means “let it be” attitude has to change. The Indians need to change themselves and a proper regulation is required for each thing. Why the people are not developing themselves may not be answered easily but that is the primary reason for India’s backwardness in every field. Simple putting all these factors makes India vulnerable to world’s mockery which not every Indian can tolerate. The rest of the Indians are just not bothered, they are only bothered about “my name, my fame, my money, my family, my children, my job, my career, etc…”.  This “My” is not getting dissolved. Until this “My” is dissolved, no more development would be done.

A crucial work is to spread the India culture like never before. It is not to convert or propagate but it is the high time when Indian culture needs to be sung out and all the Indians must be made to realize that they have forgotten an important phase of their life. Our culture is our heritage and we must respect and uphold it.

Museum of Toilets

Museum of wax models, the museum of artifacts and antique articles, the museum of arms and weapons and many such museums are already prevalent in the world. But nowhere has anyone seen a museum of toilets, which was established in the year 1992 by Shri Bindeshwar Pathak. The museum is located in Palam, New Delhi. Those who have heard and read about this for the first time must be questioning the very idea of opening such a museum. The story of the museum of toilets begins with an idea to exhibit the varieties of toilets from all around the world and from ancient times.

Untitled

India has seen growth in many areas, but the cleanliness target in India is still lagging behind. To encourage people to take up good sanitation habits, Dr. Pathak started a program called Sulabh International, which helps in the construction and maintenance of toilets in the rural and semi-urban areas in the country. He also founded the Museum of toilets that showcase the toilet systems of all many countries of the world. Embassies of many countries were approached through letters for fetching the information about the toilet systems in their respective countries and also if any, information was available regarding ancient toilet systems in their countries.

A lot of search-research was conducted to establish the museum and bring in ample information about the toilets. After three years of consistent research, sufficient information was collected in the form of books, magazines, photographs, etc. each information is placed chronologically and creatively. Some models are also placed which depict the toilets of various styles and country culture. The rare toilet systems used around the world from 2500 B.C are depicted here with the help of models and pictures. Chamber pots, bidets toilet furniture, privies, water closets from 1145 to the present times are shown in the museum. The efforts of depicting these toilet systems of countries all around the world also exhibit the technology of both present and past times, social customs related toilet, sanitary conditions, toilet etiquettes, administrative and legislative decisions related to a toilet of all the times.

Toilets systems of the past times

People would be surprised to know that there were also poems written that were related to the toilet. The museum has such a collection of poems. The English people were used to the toilets when they would go on camping and hunting. Such toilet commodes were made up in the shape of the treasure chest and they were mobile commodes, specially designed for the time of camping and hunting. It also shows how toilet systems worked before the times when water closets were not invented. The most surprising feature of the toilets of the past times was that some of them, especially belonging to the big and royal clans, were ornamentally decorated.

In fact, the Roman emperors would use a toilet made up of gold and silver. The first use and invention of the flush system are depicted here. The flush system was invented by Sir John Harrington, who was one of the courtiers of Queen Elizabeth I. the evolution of toilet systems and technological developments in it are shown by various region, like Lothal, from the Indus Valley Civilization. Significant changes and development of the sewerage systems and drainage systems of the world are also shown.  The early developments in the technology of Europe are shown. This museum has been included in the list of world’s ten weirdest museums.

Aims and objectives of establishing the museum

The knowledge provided through the museum would help sanitation experts to deal with the modern civilization’s problems of sanitation. It would also help the manufacturers of toilets systems and equipment to develop the technology further to address the needs of the modern civilization and the future generations. A major part belongs to the increase of knowledge of the researchers who gets to know about the technology of the past era, the drainage system, the kind of social customs regarding sanitation etc. for the students it is of immense help, as it shows them the trends of the past times and early developments in the sanitation. Policy makers are benefitted in the way of getting knowledge about how to administer and legislate in the case of sanitation.

Group visits

People who like to visit in groups, if they inform the management of the museum beforehand, then the group is provided with complete guidance about the museum. Also, they are guided through the tour of the museum with a trained volunteer for the specific interests of the groups, including sign interpretations.

The development of the toilet system

There has not been much study conducted on toilet systems anywhere in the world, due to inhibitions like – this is something menial, does not require attention, etc. though, the founder of the Museum of toilets has confirmed the views of certain activists and social reformers of the past times and present times who kept on urging people to use proper sanitation facilities. Such scholars also kept urging to their respective governments about the need to develop proper facilities for public toilets. In Roman civilization and Harappan civilization, toilet facilities were very well-developed, which has been confirmed from archaeological excavations. There have been stories about the cures of diseases through human and animal excreta. How can the governments and people think this issue is a trivial issue when it is of such importance. A Proper system of defecation is directly connected with hygiene.

If the hygiene of any country is to be maintained, then both public toilets and household toilets are to be developed. The population of every country has faced problems of open defecations and government has come out with solutions as well. India has also faced this problem for a long period. During the British rule, India was considered as an unhygienic country because open defecation had become a norm here. Moreover, people were not willing to accept change in this habit. Now has the time come when India should change this habit by rooting out this problem from its nib. Sulabh International has been successful in meeting the challenge of development of toilets all over the country, specifically in rural areas. Still, a lot has to be improved as the impoverished population in some remote areas has not been able to free itself from the unhygienic habits of open defecation due to various factors.

When looked upon from a larger context, it is not only India that has been facing such issues, but there have been many countries in the world that have faced the problem of open defecation in the past and are now enabled to live a healthier life by accepting the hygienic trends of sanitation.

Your Ideas and My Ideas

Love is all you need

Where there is love, there is conflict too, to balance the relationship to its benchmark. But not always the conflict seems pleasing. There are times when these petty conflicts turn a lifelong relationship into a disaster.

A healthy relationship not only needs love to grow but also other emotional and rational factors to ignite the fire within. The couples nowadays far more believe in love marriages, as you get to spend the rest of your lives with your beloved. Here you know how your partner is going to react or handle the situation. The understanding and bond of love are consistent to lead ahead in their relationship. They support and respect each other’s decisions and opinions for the betterment of their future plans.

Untitled

The point is how they handle their misunderstandings not even letting their shadows know about it. The effect of conflicting relationship goes straight to their children, family, and friends. There are many facets in one’s life that might be distressful and of agony. The fear of losing the compatibility with the partner also leads to offensive thoughts and imagination. The couples should keep indulged themselves in pampering each other by presenting gifts, taking for a date or vacation, which not release the stress but also deepens their bond.

Untitled

The conflicts they undergo

The conflicts among the couples don’t arise randomly. It is the result of mishandling of the other aspects of life. These factors might comprise of –

  • Money –it is said monetary influence leaves the high impact on marital status. But it is not completely true. The partner needs to focus on other important issues like future security, family planning, long-term investments to earn future benefits. The couples should lead as a team to pool in their joint income for future perspective to spice up their present and relax in their retirement phase. Money should be just a number and not more than that. It should be considered while analysis your love status.
  • Work – at this point in time, everyone finds for a working beau to contribute for the wellness of their married life. But the couples need to understand the flinches they experience due to change in shifts time to time depending on the nature of the job profile. The couples need to adjust according to their routine and set their timetable in such a manner that they take out spare time for each other.

There should be a clear connection between them to acknowledge each other’s work priorities and time management for the same to avoid any sort of conflict.

Untitled

  • Children – the big question arises who will look after the kids? Normally, we get to see mothers or wives look after children and household chores. But nowadays females are working hard to establish their own identity and feed their children more efficiently. In most of the cases, the women going out and earning stay back at home and take care of the kids and house. It is time to break old stereotypes and let them go out and work for themselves and their family.

Men should also play a keen and equal part in grooming their kids and preparing them for the future. Partners should understand and respect each other’s decision to move ahead in life without a crease. They both should be equally responsible for their child and his activities.

Untitled

Handling the stress with ease

  • Differences can be tackled through proper monitoring and space are given to each other.
  • Couples should talk about the problem immediately before it becomes a big problem in your relationship.
  • Couples need to express love, affection, and gratitude towards each other to show how much they care about them. This can be made easy by presenting flowers, preparing favorite dinner, romantic candle light dinner and walks.
  • You can always talk about any frustration or work-related problem you are dealing with. This, in turn, will firm your trust over each other. Your partner will help you to sort your stress and build a love relationship.
  • In a healthy relationship, the couples more likely respect and consider each other’s perspective and help them in decision – making.

Time shall fly, but memories last forever

Miss you Dad, I remember those days when you were on this earth.

504bc2e44513dd7c27a3b6df19a7b709

“There is a unique mirth and joy in her voice and a feeling of distinctive pride in him. Words may be hard to come but the eyes say it all. The delights across their faces are perhaps the best thanks one could ever imagine. As they stand side by side in front of the cake, Dad nudges mom to step forward and blow the candles. Mom looks so cute wearing the colorful birthday cap. Delirious sounds of “Happy Birthday” fill the room and she so coyly blows the candle. The moment when Dad and Mom share the piece of cake, brought tears into my eyes. I hug them as we squeeze into the longest family hug I could ever remember.”

Every occasion is special in its own right, but some moments are much more special than others. They embody scores of varied emotions, hundreds of sweetened memories. We always cherish our childhood birthday parties when parents used to host a gala party and invite all neighborhoods to join in the celebrations. We felt so loved and special during every single second then; the prince and princesses of our kingdom. Today, seeing the King and Queen of our lives blush under all the attention, life feels so accomplishing. Every single selfie taken today shall be posted on Facebook and Instagram for the entire world to see. No inhibitions, no limitations. All members of our global family who could not make it to the venue, witness the moments live through large screen video screens. The multicolor balloons and ribbons, classy decorations and the floating foam add luster to the whole event. A children’s booth, snacks bar, hot chocolate and coffee corner, etc. are some of the extraordinary services offered by Xyz… Spectacular dining experiences with specially crafted flavors, Xyz… offers a wide variety of cocktails and cuisines ranging from the traditional Indian spiced-curry delicacies to the favorite Chinese food.

Highly courteous and ever smiling staff made the occasion a moment to cherish forever. Time shall fly, but memories last forever

FUZIA – A FUSION OF FREEDOM

FUZIA LOGO FULL SIZE

Everyone might have heard Freedom of expression as a universal right, Honestly, Most of us don’t even recognize the exact meaning of Freedom of expression as well as the term “universal”? I can begin this by way of greeting people all around. How are you my dear typically male chauvinistic society who is trying day by day to engulf my individuality? You may be wondering why society is being related in the beginning. Why wonder? This is what we do. All the women out there, their first concern is “What will people say”. Society cannot capture my thoughts. I won’t allow it till it understands my capability.  We all are capable of doing right for ourselves; all we need is a proper form of motivation, which in my case may be named as Fuzia.com

Wondering, what it is? The wait will be soon over.

So, freedom of expression, huh! What’s it first? The right to freely express one’s opinions and thoughts without being scared of landing in trouble… it is this freedom which makes a country like India, the world’s best democracy. However, you get the concept that it is not truly established. Like ideas on paper and ideas in exercise, each of the ideas is distinctive. With the operation of Freedom of expression comes the excellent age-old operation of the patriarchal society which not only takes away the freedom of choice but also freedom of expression.  Fortunately for us, not all are stars against us; the only constant is working its way through it. Thanks to modernization, globalization and the world of the internet in the form of a global platform, Fuzia.com for playing the crucial role in giving women a chance to express beyond the boundaries set by so-called morally upright patriarchal society.

Fuzia.com is an exceptional creative platform for women around the globe to freely express their ideas, opinions, stories,  photographs, articles, fashion, art, craft, videos, collages anything which expresses their feelings, desires suppressed or repressed by unnatural causes.

The core team behind the success of Fuzia.com 

Core Team

The aim behind building Fuzia was to give women a chance to associate with gifted personalities having similar interests crosswise over the globe and fabricate significant inspiring associations.

I know finding a safe social media portal is a tough task, but not to worry ladies, Fuzia.com is both safe as well as a secure option, unlike my Facebook buddy.  We all talk about Women empowerment, but you know the only way to empower women is to give them a chance. If you go with the latest stats, you will find the scarcity of opportunity and the lack of people taking real steps. But we can take our first step which will help our daughters, mothers, sisters, wives, and grandmothers to empower. That step would be enrolling into Fuzia.com.

Fuzia.com has taken a real appreciable step by making them available with a platform to voice their opinions. I would like to thank Fuzia.com for opening up such opportunities.

I would like to express my gratitude to some of the people. The primary person, to start with, is the founder of Fuzia.com, Riya Sinha, and the women behind this exquisite concept.
