Random thought

Have you ever happened to realise that you give so much of importance to some people you meet throughout your life, at a point you think that it will last for the rest of your life. And after a few years, you and the importance you had for them remain the same, but they aren't.


Several things in life change by time. How we used to cherish friendship everyday when we were school kids, how we thought friends are everything, how we shared every little secrets, sorrows, happiness, how we had little fights between friends about friendship. Once we leave school and go to college, we find new friends and then we get a little more busier. Thereafter we find a job, get new friends and then I am not sure how friendship is looked at that phase, which remains to be seen in my case. But the reality is that people do begin to change because of the changing lifestyle. You lose and gain a number of friends throughout your life, but only a few remain worth for what you had shared and cared. Can't understand the true definition of friendship, if there is one. May be I will later in life. Like you understand what life is only after living it, as they say.

Of course people change with time..their life style changes.. But I'm not sure whether the friendship will be lost if it had been a genuine one..

**You lose and gain a number of friends throughout your life, but only a few remain worth for what you had shared and cared.**
100% TRUE.

Decide to remain friends, but not close friends if you need to sustain the relation. Friendships change as our needs and lifestyles change. It's healthy to have a host of friends and to sometimes shift the status of one or another. Making friends can sometimes seem easy. The hard part is keeping the connections strong during the natural ups and downs that affect all relationships.

If you have recently started going out with a new bunch of friends, you need to consider that your oldest and dearest friend might be feeling a little left out and isolated. Internalise how they might feel and consider what it would be like if you were the one who never received an invite for an excellent night out on the town. It is a good idea to invite your pal along with your new group of friends, so that other lasting friendships can be formed. If you are in the sticky position where your friend doesn’t get on with your new friends, you need to improve and practice your juggling skills, in order to try and fit both groups of friends into your busy schedule.

Most friendships die a natural death: people move, change jobs, accept new responsibilities, or embark on different stages of life. Other friendships, however, end prematurely and abruptly. When a friendship is over and you don't understand why, it can be especially painful and puzzling. Sometimes a friend ends your relationship without telling you why you’ve been dropped. Sometimes a friend ends your relationship without expressing hurt feelings towards you.

friendship also varies on your social circle and unless u meet everyday it takes effort to maintain contact - from both sides. but i think there are also some friendships that it doesnt matter how many times they meet, even if they meet once a month and hardly speak in between the friendship is as strong as ever. naima xx

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …
