Shobhaa De- Women are more cruel

"How many times have I heard women say, ‘I wish he was dead’. The ‘he’ being the husband, of course. The same women have come back weeks later expressing shame, regret and guilt for making such a telling remark.
Strangely, I’ve never heard a man say that about his wife.
Which makes me wonder whether women are more cruel in these matters, or more put upon."

- Shoba De, in Spouse, Chapter 8 (Marriage Most Foul- Shaadi aur barbaadi.)

Two Wolves

Two Wolves - A Story to Change Your Life

An Old Cherokee Chief is Teaching His Grandson about Life.

Cherokee: "A fight is going on inside me, It is a Terrible fight and it is between 2 wolves. One is evil- he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt and ego.
The Other is Good- he is Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Serenity, Humility, Kindness, Benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. The same fight is going on inside you- and inside every other person too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The Old chief simply replied: "The one You Feed."

"Hum Aaj Kal Hamesha mard ko hi galat manate hain. Agar Mard Aurat ko thapad marata hain to hum kahte hain ki bada jalim mard hain aur agar Aurat Mard ko thappad marti hain, to kahate hain jaroor mard ne kuch kiya hoga. Hamesha Mard hi galat hota hain yeh manane se mujhe Aitraaz Hain bahoot aitraaz."

Translated into English
"These days we always blame the man!!! If a Man slaps a Women we say how voilent he is!!! But if a Women slaps a Man we again blame the Man (with a benefit of doubt to the lady)stating the man must have done something wrong and he is getting back. I object to this 'assumption' that men are always wrong . I in fact I object to this vociferously."

Quoted by the character, played by Kareena Kapoor in 'Aitraaz'
