safe sex

India, Sept. 25 -- From desktop applications to "condom parties" - condoms have gone from the most embarassing six letter word to possibly the coolest word in town.

It started when a condom brand launched www.sendsomerubber.

com, a site that lets you send an application to friends which ensures that, whenever your friend chats about sex online or types out "sexy" words such as '69' or 'horny', a condom drops onto the screen with a message to promote safe sex. Peter McCann of Ansell Ltd, who is associated with the project, explains, "Sendsomerubber is an initiative to bring forth a message of safe sex.

" With 66,648 online rubbers already sent, the application seems to be a hit. On Facebook, an application named 'Send Your Friend A Condom' has over 30,000 users.

That's not all. Recently, a 'Cocktails and Kondoms' party was held at a popular nightspot in Delhi, with an aim to create awareness for safe sex among partygoers.

And, actor Ronit Roy, launched 'LOVE Condom', a campaign to promote AIDS awareness, in the Capital a few months ago. He said this generation is open about talking about sex and protection, "I've seen people go to chemists and ask for condoms in a hushed tone, but this generation is different".

Kaminey's Fatak song, which had actor Shahid Kapoor dressed up as a giant condom, has also been hailed for its message of safe sex.

how i met your mother

Yay! How I met your mother is back! :D

After waiting for so long I was glad to see the season 5. but one thing made me think when robin and barney hook up and like for 1000 times. And in previous season robin was dating ted. I mean in India when your best friend is dating some girl that girl is somewat like your own sister. I have some across people who call their best friends girlfriend bhabhi or vahini ( in marathi ) and whats shown in HIMYM is completely opposite to Indian culture. I mean it shows how life really is in there.

Also in one episode its shown that barney tells ted that he would like have sex with his sister.and ted just takes it as lightly as if it was just another girl barney was talking about having sex. If that would have been in India barney would have been dead that very moment.

I am not criticizing the series, I love it myself. But there are some things that are so different in there and here. I mean you sleep with your friend and the next day you act just as casual about it. Or like sleep with your best friends sister or his girlfriend. Its like all they want is sex.

With all the modernization and Indians getting more influenced by the west world and their lifestyle. I just hope their lifestyle really don’t take over our culture. We have got some ethics which are worth preserving. And that’s what makes us different from them.

Reality shows

whats with the television people these days? I agree reality shows are fun sometimes but they are just going a bit over the top these days. Whats with the reality shows like rakhi ka swayamvar and perfect bride and pati patni aur who??

I am sure they will get the highest TRP’s but they are just making fun of the most sacred relationship in India. I mean now swayamvar is over, well I watched it myself I found it really stupid yet a fun way to laugh. With just one show like that was ok… but now it’s a bit over the top. Now there is perfect bride where they will find a perfect match and get them married and then there is pati patni aur woh where they will married and take care of a child. Now I guess its not far away that they will start a show showing the honey moon and how to impress your mother – in – law and how to keep your husband in your control.

Thalassemia







Raj and madhuri were recently married and soon to have their first child. Raj was a very loving hubby and so took all the care of his wife during pregnancy. Raj was a sweet guy since his childhood. He was excellent in studies as well as sports activities and so he was the favrouite of his teachers as well as his class mates. And the same applies to madhuri. She was talented as well.

They had their first baby a very normal delivery. The kid was loved by everyone. He was the darling of the family and even the neighbors. It was after about 3 to 4 months of the birth did the child started getting irritated kept crying the whole day didn’t eat properly. Raj and madhuri discovered this change in their childs behaviour. They took the child to a doctor.

Doctor informed them that their child was a thalassemia major.

Raj and madhuri were confused at that moment. They thought it was just another normal disease that their son has got. And asked the doctor for what was supposed to be done now. Which medicines to give and what precautions to take.

That was the time when doctor told them to listen properly, he said, “ your child is a thalassemia major. Means from now on to the rest of this life he is needed to be given blood every 15 days or he will die. And because of the blood given, iron will be accumulated in his body which has to be removed or else it would also lead to the death of the child.”

Raj and madhuri were completely shocked. How can this happen to their child? They both were perfectly normal they never had any such thing then how can this happen to their child?

The doctor explained that, this might have happened because they both were thalassemia minor. Thalassemia minor is not a disease or anything wrong. Thalassemia minor is the normal human. You wont even realize if you are a thalassemia minor.

What happens is. If you are a thalassemia minor and your spouse is also a thalassemia minor then you have 25% chance of giving birth to a thalassemia major child. A pre needle test is done when the girl is 2months pregnant to check weather the child is safe or not and if he is found to be a thalassemia major, well then the doctor himself will recommend you to abort the child. And if either of you is thalassemis normal then the child has no threat of getting thalassemia minor.

Thalassemia is a thing that doesn’t change for your whole life. Ie if you are tested thalassemia normal now then you will be a thalassemia normal for the rest of your life. No matter what you do no matter who you get married to or you smoke or you have sex with anyone else you will always be a thalassemia normal.

What I want to conclude is, raj and madhuri made just one mistake they never tested themselves for thalassemia, if just either of them would have been aware then their child would have been able to live a normal life like you and me. Where as now, he has to be depended on the blood bank for blood and he has to get an injection every day and sleep with a needle inserted in his stomach to remove the iron.

If raj and madhuri would have done one simple test in their whole life, then they would have been able to give a normal life to their own child.

Its just that, one simple test once in your life and you will be able to give your child a very normal life.

The percentage on thalassemia patients are increasing so we need to get aware about it. Even I didn’t know anything about it. But it was yesterday when I attended a social awareness and a social service activities with some of my friends did I realize this. And I thought it was my duty to let as much people know about it and make the aware that do a test for thalassemia.

And as I am writing this… I would also like to tell people please donate blood. It is equally important.

Birthdaaaaaay



Hey people, well this is just a random post. You know I am getting paranoid since yesterday. Getting sadness attacks or maybe its more of hyperness attacks or whatever you would like to call it. Its my 18th birthday on this 10th and nothing is planned nothing is actually decided of what to do. And whatever can possibly go wrong on the big day, already has.

Its was supposed to be one of the best days of my life. I mean you don’t turn into an adult everyday, do you? I was supposed to be treated like a princess on that day and now its nothing even close to being a princess. God! This is so depressing yaa.

I just don’t know. I wanted this day to be just perfect. Like not even a minute or a second or for in that case I don’t even want a micro second to go wrong. And now its like the whole day is going wrong.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa………… this is now getting me more insane. Well so ill end it here.. cya people

Well hope I atleast get a nice chocolate cake… you know chocolate helps to get over depression :P

Ganpati Visarjan 2009


Hey ya people. I know I am late to post this thing, but I really never had time to write and whenever I was free I was feeling very lazy to write. So I guess, better late then never.

So it was a few days back, during ganpati visarjan, I go to watch the visarjan every year with my mom but this year mom was out of town and I had to go all by my own. I got up at 8 and was all set to go though I knew I had to reach there by 2 but I was so very exited for the thing that I could hardly sleep.

I reached there at 2.30pm and I was still very early. I went to the girgaum chowpatty it was clean and everything arranged properly so that the ganpati visarjan will go smooth. There were even loads of police men, RSP and NCC students standing in a line to control the rush that will come in a few hours… as ganpatis started coming I started my way in the reverse direction to see the ganpatis in a quicker way. I have uploaded some of the photos here as well..

It was really a wonderful experience to wander around alone. With absolutely no idea of how I will reach home and what will happen next.it was sort of like a adventure when you know that you wont get a bus home and you wont find an open restaurant or any shop to ask directions for.. you’ll be surrounded by people, but you wont dare talk to those people because their appearance itself will scare you off ( they are all red and yellow, cause of the gulal they use ) and all fireworks around. Its different and its fun :D
