Why I’m done trying to be “man enough”

I watched this really wonderful talk by Justin Baldoni (TED Talks) where he talks about Men and redefining masculinity. In course of his talk he also asks of serious questions that maybe every man should ask himself:

Are you brave enough to be vulnerable?

Are you strong enough to be sensitive?

Are you confident enough to listen to the women in your life?

In a 14 minutes, 43 seconds talk, he shares his personal story, while at the same time appealing to Men to look at themselves again.. and not only be a good man, but be also a good human.

Probably, you and I can learn something new. If you’re a woman watching it, share the same with your brother, colleague, boyfriend, husband etc.

Give them the gift of seeing the other side of what a man can also be.. I could relate to it and I’m sure every other man would too..

Signs to catch in MEN when they are Emotionally broken

He will never share his problems with you

He will always try to handle things on his own

He will never express his feelings easily

He tries to look happy by forcing a smile

He will not accept if anything is wrong in his life

He will stay alone

He might appear cold & affectionate because he is cautious

All of this is because He has been taught that REAL MEN are STRONG

Bottle or Packet?

So this morning, I went to buy ‘ginger garlic paste’..the thingy you mix in curries to make it tastier. Now you must also know when a guy goes shopping, he sets out with certain images & words in his head and he needs to buy those exact things, no variations will do.

With that, I set out to buy a bottle of ginger garlic paste, the image of which I had in my mind looked like this 

But apparently shopkeepers don’t think this is a bottle, it is a packet to them. So I went around the market, asking around for a bottle to which I got a NO answer from every shop and they told me they had a packet but I needed a bottle. I smiled and walked on to the next shop.

After walking around the market, 8 different shops and not finding what I wanted, I thought to myself; 

Wow!~ how difficult is it really to buy a simple thing as this? After getting fed up with all the NO answers I got shop after shop, I finally asked one shopkeeper to show me the s0-called-packet that he and all the shopkeepers had, the next best option to the bottle I was searching for..and he takes out the packet which I was searching for..but wait! This is a packet? How is it a packet? It is a bottle, it has a cap on its head and it stands on its own, a packet is a packet and one needs to cut it open and not just open and close its cap.

I thought I’d give a lesson to the shopkeeper about what a packet is and how different it is from a bottle, but before I could even begin he said;

“40 Rs” and got busy doing something else. Well, he missed out on learning something new. He will go on with life in knowing the wrong thing, which is sad.

Btw, this is what a packet looks like… always helps with a visual 😉


While my friends are busy making babies and boasting about looking forward to fatherhood, I am here deciding on what should be a packet vs a bottle. Well, some learn before marriage, others after marriage, whichever way we look at it-there will be times your wife will send you out shopping, you better learn 😂😂😂

Have a super Tuesday folks!

…too much hair?

Most women love their men hairy (beard, chest & head) and as a man… I don’t understand why! I mean, then what’s the difference between a man and a bear? If you put both into the wild, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two.

A lot of young guys of late are growing their hair long and then keeping their beard long and I don’t even want to get to what’s underneath their shirt. Its bad enough we live in India where the heat isn’t really kind to us and to manage so much of body hair is.. difficult to say the least, and yet they are willing to do it. I heard from a few youngsters, they have to say “Its the new cool and the women folk dig it”. 

Personally tho’ I haven’t heard any women admit to the fact that they love a lot of hair on their man.

Lets look at some of the places that we (men) like growing our hair.

1. Face Hair (mustache/beard)

Doesn’t it make the kissing or eating weird? We know as Indians we love our rice and curry…imagine parts of food getting stuck in your mustache or beard. (Worse scenario, try eating a mango!) NO GOOD. Hair could get into the mouth while kissing, that couldn’t possibly be good for the kisser and the one being kissed.

2. Growing long hair on the HEAD

So girls are cutting their hair short while boys are growing their hair long, there is something very wrong here. I can’t understand the logic. Its not that guys look any cooler..Look at Ishant Sharma (Indian cricketer)…does he look cool? I don’t think so.

3. Chest hair

Okay! Now if we’re living in a cold country like Russia for example, I can understand the chest hair keeps us warm and all but in India where people sweat profusely – makes no sense absolutely. A BIG NO.

While boys/men like their women well trimmed/shaved in different parts of their bodies making them feel more womanly, I guess girls/women like their men hairy making them look very manly…whatever that’s supposed to mean!





For the women reading this…what’s your take?
For the men reading this…keep an eye on what the women have to say



Flavors of Life

Everything is flavored nowadays

..from Ice Cream to Milk to cigarettes, even Condoms! ..and I ask myself Condoms!? Like seriously!? Aren’t flavors used to make taste better? From where did the concept of flavoring condoms come from? 😐

I was at the super market yesterday, you know..looking around, buying the normal stuff. I came to the shaving section to purchase razor blades for myself, a shelf lower was the condom section..all the varieties possible. It wasn’t the condom boxes that caught my eye tho’, it was what was written on the box.

“Now in pineapple, coconut and Pina Colada flavour “

Fuck! Until now I only thought Pina Colada was a mocktail. I don’t even know what Pina Colada tastes like and here we have people doing other people with Pina Colada flavored condoms..how gross is that!!?? It doesn’t end there…there’s a preference of colored or dotted 😄😄😄

Okayyyy!! I have a question..

Why would condom makers flavour their condoms? Does it make the sex more aromatic? besides being pleasurable…! I don’t know!

What can we expect next?r

I don’t use condoms…wait!that didn’t sound right.

I haven’t used a condom till date...wait!I know what you’re thinking..it isn’t like that

Okay!..let me put it very blatantly  ‘I’ve not popped any cherries as yet’

A normal condom v/s a flavored one…I don’t quite see the difference. Maybe for those who’ve experienced the pleasure/aroma of love making may able to say more.

However to end, a question going out to females in general…

Which flavour do you prefer? I mean seriously..you are going to be left with some aroma (after the act) there’s no denying that. It isn’t rocket science to figure that out!

Think about that condom for once, its got the worst job ever! After everything… it’s thrown into one corner!


The accident

A woman and a man are involved in a car accident. It’s a bad one, caused by the woman’s reckless driving.Both of their cars are demolished but amazingly neither ofthem are hurt.
After they crawl out of their cars.

The woman says; “So, you’re a man, That’s interesting. I’m a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There’s nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days

The man replied,” I agree with you completely. This must be a sign from God!

The woman continued, “And look at this, here’s another miracle. My car is completely damaged, but this bottle of wine didn’t break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune”

She hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it, drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on and hands it back to the man.

The man asks, “Aren’t you having any?”

She replies, “Nah. I think I’ll just wait for the police to come and collect their evidence.”

Adam ate the apple again !

Men will NEVER learn !

Women will NEVER change!!!
