HOW NOT TO TREAD ON YOUR PARTNER’S EMOTIONAL TOES

Life and living are all about relationships. You, I, he and she all live and thrive on good relationships. Though the word Relationship covers the entire gamut of human bonds- this post-on the eve of Valentine’s Day is about romantic relationships.

I have read often that one has to work on relationships. I would prefer to say that one has to act with awareness and be always sensitive to the other’s feelings. Put simply, just keep your emotional intelligence always on alert so as not to tread on your partner’s emotional toes.

1.    TELL ‘I LOVE YOU’ AGAIN AND AGAIN.

And then again and again…In the bedroom, in the bath, in the kitchen, out in the streets…wherever.
Sounds tame and old fashioned? Well, there is nothing tame about love. Never be tired of announcing your love to your precious partner. Be generous in your hugs and kisses.

2.    SPLURGE A BIT.

If your partner is in the mood for a little reckless spending, so be it. Loosen your purse strings a bit, and do not, for God’s sake, start that lecture on world economy. Of what use money, if it cannot bring sunshine into your relationships. You can, with your high E.Q, find an appropriate time to discuss and get your finance back on stable ground.

3.    THOU MAY NOT THRUST.

Do not thrust yourself, literally or otherwise on your partner by being too demanding and possessive. Give him or her some free space so that your partner doesn’t gag on the relationship.

4.    DO TRUST.

If there be only one single word for a lasting relationship of any kind, it is TRUST in all matters, not merely physical. Never challenge your partner based on hearsay, even though the matter in question might have come from a reliable source. Always give the benefit of doubt in all matters to him/her and then gently sort it out between yourselves- if you must-with great tact and dignity.

5. PRAISE IN PUBLIC, CRITICIZE (IF YOU MUST) IN PRIVATE.

I cannot overemphasize the importance of this Golden Rule which is self explanatory. On many an occasion, I have seen the shame and embarrassment on some friend’s face, when reprimanded by the spouse in public. Here the issue, however important it may seem at that time, should take a back seat and be swept under the carpet for the time being, to be worked out in private.

6.     BE THERE.

No doubt, there will be demands on your time from your career, and many other responsibilities that you may have to shoulder. But you must reassure your partner that you will always accord due priority in case of any requirements or exigencies.

These are of course not exhaustive, but valuable tips for an evergreen relationship.

HAVE A FANTASTIC VALENTINE’S DAY!

LORD KING KRISHNA AND CHILDHOOD FRIEND SUDAMA

Dear friends, time it is now to hearken to the heartwarming tale of Sudama, Who had for his childhood and bosom friend none other than Lord Krishna. But while the little Krishna became King of Dwaraka, as ordained by destiny, Sudama, the poor Brahmin lived nearby with his family in abject poverty.
It never once occurred to Sudama to approach for help Krishna the king, But when his children starved, his wife goaded him to ask for something. Thus it was that Sudama ventured to meet his dear friend Krishna, Carrying with him only a rag- wrapped gift of rice Poha!
When the all-knowing king Krishna knew his friend was at his palace gate, He came running barefoot to greet him, leaving beholders in amazement agape. Embracing his dear school friend, he, with the queen took him inside and made him rest, Washing his feet and showering him with love, they made Sudama feel like a privileged guest. Recalling happily their younger days, the two friends forgot the passage of time, Reluctant to seek favours, Suda…

AS ‘LUCK’ WOULD HAVE IT.

“Did you pray?” asked dad, when Ramesh was getting ready for the interview. He had applied for an accountant’s position in a private firm.
“Yes dad, now let me hurry, it’s getting late,” said Ramesh, and got down from the lift of his multi story apartment and paused for a second below his apartment block to make sure he hadn’t forgotten anything. 
He was wearing black pants and a bright white shirt, neatly pressed for this special occasion.
Unknown to him, in another flat in the same complex, ‘House warming’ ceremony had just taken place. A reluctant cow had been brought all the way to the fourth floor, as it is considered auspicious.
The function just completed, some nearby residents wanted the cow dung in the corridor to be disposed off immediately, brooking no delay. The harried maid who had been working since early hours thought it fit to just fling it down, exactly where Ramesh was standing that time.
 Thus it was that the enraged Ramesh got a cowdung splotch on his white shirt fron…

A TIMELESS PROPOSAL

From childhood, Sujatha had a fascination for adventure, fantasy and sci-fi stories.
Now in her early twenties, she still loved to read books or see movies which took her off on a long flight of fancy. She could spend hours dreamily in such pursuits, unlike her smart phone peers. Though she detested conventional travels, she loved the concept of time travel.
Her parents, while happy about her not being addicted to the phone and the Net, were also a bit worried about her romantic notions on time travelling, AI etc and tried to gently wean her away towards regular studies, with limited success.
Frequently, she would relate the details of the weird dreams she started getting of late. Elves, dwarves, princes and princesses paid nocturnal visits to Sujatha in increasing frequency. While this perturbed her parents further, Varun, her younger brother would tease her, “Didn’t you see any tall handsome prince so far, instead of dwarves and other uglies?”
“Anything done in excess isn’t good,” Dad…
