We often have to make difficult choices in our lives. Pixabay
  • Change is inevitable and it mostly occurs Just when you think you’re getting comfortable
  • Life does not allow to remain in a stagnant place for long
  • Life is like a roller coaster ride, showing us its ups and downs

New Delhi, July 31, 2017: Change cannot be ignored or stopped. The life transitions occur as soon as we start getting comfortable. Life is like a rollercoaster, taking you up and down, a ride full of love, tears, and laughter. Life always wants us to learn from our mistakes and grow whether we’re about to take a career decision, taking care of parents, preparing for a new baby or are emerging out of depression.

Life refuses to let us remain at a stagnant comfortable place whether it is intentional or we’re forced to make a directional change. There exists a learning curve to prepare for the sudden changes in life, but anticipating change is half the war. The worst thing is getting comfortable because it means life will soon come to wobble things up. Listed below are five life transitions that we can relate to and expect to come eventually.

“Leaving the Nest”
Each infant bird comes into this world encompassed by the solace and insurance of a supporting home. The child eaglets’ folks accommodate them, bring sustenance, and keep predators away. In any case, at that point, something horrendous happens. The guardians start to turn that once comfortable home into a thorny, tight space that compels them to jump out and spread their wings. Everybody experiences this same progress of giving up and wandering into the obscure. The way toward taking off just happens when we take a leap of faith and bounce out of our comfort zone.

“Self Discovery”
Discovering your identity is an imperative groundbreaking stride. Each individual must be acquainted with their actual selves. It’s the core of your most profound goals, the divine examples throughout your life, and connections that demonstrate to us our identity. This life progress pushes us into another reality of our identity and makes the direction of that individual rise. The disclosure of your identity is a discovery we each must find for ourselves.

“Marriage and family”
To wed or not to wed, that is the issue. Each individual settles on the choice to either begin a family or live in singleness. Marriage and family are a life changing decision that we face and need to choose what that implies for us. Will our faith manage our answer? Will we cut out our own particular way or conflict with the grain? Choosing to join your life to another person’s and bring new lives into the world is a noteworthy life change.

“Finding purpose and your life work”
What on earth am I here for? We all experience a stage in life where we crave to answer this question. Giving life a feeling of reason, direction, and bearing achieves more noteworthy significance to our individual lives. Healthy, all encompassing living includes strolling deliberately in your extraordinary divine calling.

“The comfort zone challenge”
All great comfort zones must arrive at an end. Life will never give you a chance to get excessively comfortable and exactly when you think you have everything in order, you will be defied with something that challenges your familiar, recognizable solaces. Try not to battle back, yet rather give in. Figure out how to channel the uneasiness of progress into profitable energy that moves you into the following level.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
