About The Boy

It’s his job. Taking out the garbage. He does it well. It’s his job. Taking out the garbage. He does it well. If not each night, then at least 3-4 times a week. He might ask me to open the main door for him – but that’s only because his hands are full of garbage bags that he’s collected from all…

Sensitive Parts. Unmentionables. Body-Shaming.

( Photo from the 77th edition of #CoverUp )   A concerned stranger ( Facebook Friend ) recently sent me a private message about the above photograph. I’m not sharing their entire message but, in essence, they said I should be careful of boys posting dirty comments because it looks like I have my hand placed at a sensitive place.…

You do not have to work for free

Someone in a well-read advice column recently recommended to a youngster, “Since you are young, you can choose to work for free…”. Reading that made me purple in my face. Who “chooses” to work for free? No one, who can choose, chooses to work for free. Those, who do work for free, are usually misguided by those, who are themselves known for…

Reactive vs. Proactive : My Problem with Social Media

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Internet and I love most of the social media platforms. I love spending time on them sharing what I do professionally and personally.

Adieu August #2014

I’m happy to see you go, August. There were many power-cuts where I live. Without power back-up, i.e. the Generator pictured above, I would have not been able to do half the things that I did. Work is dependent upon having the laptop or desktop or even just the smartphone up and about and neither of these devices would work…
