Expectant Dads

7 Commandments for Expectant Dads: A Revelation for Those 40 Weeks

1. You shall be sympathetic to morning sickness ... all day
I don't know who decided to call it morning sickness, but the name is misleading. Morning sickness can happen all day long, from the moment she wakes up until the moment she sleeps. You must be sympathetic and offer to hold her hair while she pukes. She'll probably yell at you to get the hell out of the bathroom, but your offer will go a long way.

2. You shall not ask her to "hold it"
Don't ever ask her if she can hold it. She can't. Get her to a restroom immediately. Be very concerned. She may ask you to pull the car over so she can pee on the side of the road. Do it. Don't question her or you will have a problem on your hands. In fact, never question a pregnant woman who has to pee; you're just asking for trouble.

3. You shall not take her hunger lightly
A hungry pregnant woman is more threatening than stumbling across a bear cub in the woods and then seeing his mama 10 feet away eyeballing you. Get her some food now, you fool! And then go get her more food while she's eating that food. I don't care if it's three in the morning; you can't go wrong with food. I cannot stress the importance of keeping a pregnant woman full. It could save your marriage. Oh, you thought I was kidding, didn't you? That's cute. I’m not.

4. You shall not covet cologne
Pregnant women develop super powers — they can puke like a fire hose and they can smell better than a bloodhound on the hunt. That cologne that used to be so sexy on you now sucks, so stop wearing it. And that spray deodorant is making her feel murderous and you would be the first victim. It's not her fault she can smell you three hours after you leave for work, it's your fault (just play along with this for now).

5. Honor her mood changes
Sybil ain't got nothin' on a pregnant woman. And don't even think about blaming it on hormones unless you're looking to get hurt. You don't know what a pregnant woman is capable of doing. She probably doesn't know either, but do you really want to find out? Just keep in mind that in conjunction with these mood changes it will take your lady a fraction of the time to get upset compared to the good old days, which means your escape window is now significantly smaller. (Remember this in case you break a commandment.)

6. You shall not bear false witness against female anatomy
Nipples on pregnant women expand, freakishly conquering territory on the boob like Sherman marching through Atlanta. And then there are things like discharge. Listen dude, you won't look at women the same way, but you must smile and nod and try to look sympathetic to all these bodily changes. Think about how sad it was when Apollo Creed died at the end of Rocky IV. If you keep that image in mind while the ladies talk private parts, you will appear compassionate and everyone will love that none of this grosses you out in the slightest.

7. Remember she will get freaked out
All these articles she’s reading online are driving her mad. It’s your job to find another article that debunks the first article, print it out and highlight it. You must also rage at the author of the first article, ‘Blank is an idiot! He/she doesn't know what they're talking about!'

TV Show

In this ‘Nostalgia’ series we bring you a list of TV serials that will make you reminisce the good ol’ days; when you didn’t have 99 channels and yet there was no dearth of entertainment!
Malgudi DaysTa na na ta nananananaaaa. Can someone please bring Swami, Mani and Rajam back?

Byomkesh Bakshi: So what if Byomkesh’s character was inspired by Sherlock Holmes, he totally kicked ass!

Chandrakanta: The serial that left the country glued to television in the mid 90s!

Surabhi: One of the best cultural programmes to have ever hit TV screen. Siddharth Kak and Renuka Shahne rocked. Once they had a record of 10 lakh postcards for one episode; does that ever happen these days?

Shaktimaan: So we weren’t that young when Shaktiman and his alter-ego Pandit Gangadhar Vidyadhardhar Mayadhar Omkarnath Shastri hit the screen. But how do we not include India’s very first Superhero in this list?
Tara: This show didn’t play by the ‘middle-class rules’ and yet was successful. From kissing to women smoking and extramarital affairs to live-in relationships, it had it all.

Dekh bhai dekh:  Let’s sing along… Is rang badalti duniya mein kya tera hai kya mera hai, Dekh bhai dekh; Har shaam ke baad savera hai, dekh bhai dekh…

Vikram Aur Betaal: So Betaal was kind of a vampire and he scared the bejesus out of us; but can we still have an encore?

Mowgli (The Jungle Book ): Did you make fun of other kids by singing, ‘Jungle jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai... Chaddi pahan ke phool khila hai?' If you’ve never done that, you probably weren’t born in the 80s.

Karamchand: The carrot-munching detective Karamchand and his assistant Kitty never failed to keep us entertained and thrilled at the same time.

Duck Tales: Uncle Scrooge and his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Oh how we finished homework (without any prompting or prodding from our mothers) in order to catch their adventures!

What Men Really Want After Marriage

Do you wonder why your hubby's friends crack those 'this is what marriage does to you' jokes? And then think what is it that will keep him from not falling for those silly gals. Here's all you need to know about keeping your husband happy and committed.

Some of their liberty intact: Most men are commitment phobic because they fear they will lose all the liberty that comes with remaining single. So once they commit themselves to marriage, they hope to retain at least some of that liberty. They'd like you to give them their space and let them have a life of their own too. 

Companionship that's outside the bedroom too: Romance is a lovely thing and gives men the high, but after marriage, it's not the only thing they want. Companionship goes beyond and much deeper than just a romantic flavor to the whole relationship.

A friend who's their equal: In a wife, they look out for an equal in every way. Somebody who they can depend on should their confidence falter, somebody they can match wits with and certainly somebody who can understand them as a friend and also be with them always.

A home that they can be comfortable in - When we say home, we mean both their space of living and the family. They certainly want both they can be comfortable in after marriage. It's among the most crucial things that men look out for in a marriage. It gives them a sense of belonging, like being rooted and grounded.

A secure feeling of being loved and cared for - Emotional security is another thing that men really would like to have after marriage. An assurance of being loved and cared for makes them fall into a more comfortable space within the marriage, which is what they look out for.

Make him feel loved and respected and he'll certainly feel you're adding immense value to his life through this relationship.

Most Romantic Things To Say To Her

  1. When giving her a dozen roses, 11 real and 1 fake, say "I will love you until the last rose dies."
  2. Last night I looked up into the stars and matched each one with a reason why I love you. I was doing great untill I ran out of stars.

Old id Gold

Remember the time when you had just one Channel to watch and only one tape recorder to listen to music? There were days when you couldn’t wait to write a letter to your uncle who stayed abroad (so you can ask for your favourite chocolates, wink) and you rode your bicycle on a rainy day without worrying about the mud and the muck on your clothes. Well, here are some things that will make you reminiscent about simpler times.

Bril inkpot: Doesn’t it remind you of the strict instruction from your mother, “Fill the pen and shut it tightly, and don’t you dare stain your dress!”

Hero pen: Your favorite ink pen which is virtually dead now.

Nirma ad: Washing powder Nirma, Washing powder Nirma, Doodh si safedi, Nirma se aayi ,  Rangeen kapde bhi khil khil jaaye… bet you know the jingle by heart!

Vicco turmeric ad: Ditto for Vicco! You can sing along Vicco turmeric, Nahin cosmetic, Vicco turmeric ayurvedic cream…

Canvas shoes: Doesn’t this pair remind you of PT lessons in school?

Geometry box: Protractor, divider, compass, set squares. and we thought life was complicated then!

Murder 2

Aa Zara Karib

Yeh raat ruk jaaye, baat tham jaaye, teri baahon mein
Khwaishein jagi hain pyaasi pyaasi labhon pe
Khud ko jala doon, teri aanhon mein
Aagosh mein aaj mere samaa ja
Jaane kya hona hai kal
Aa zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se
Aa ja zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se, jee le

Yeh jahaan saara bhool kar
Jismo ke saaye tale dheeme dheeme chale raat bhar
Pal do pal hum hai humsafar
Thay abhi dono yahaan honge subah jaane kahan kya khabar
Aa ja zara khud ko mujh mein milaa ja
Jaane kya hona hai kal
Aa zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se
Aa ja zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se, jee le

Khwaab hoon main toh makhmali
Palkon mein leja mujhe maine diya mauka tujhe ajnabi
Hosh mein aaye na abhi
Ik dooje mein hi kahin khoyi rahe teri meri zindagi
Khamoshiyan dhadkano ki sunaa ja
Jaane kya hona hai kal
Aa zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se, aa ja
Jo pal mile naseeb se
Raat ruk jaaye, teri baahon mein
Aagosh mein aaj mere samaa ja
Jaane kya hona hai kal
Aa zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se
Aa zara kareeb se, jo pal mile naseeb se, jee le

Which Body Type are You?

Apple, pear, round, hour-glass or slim? Body type is a scientifically calculated classification of your body as per shape and other measurements. Categorized by a number of physical traits, whether slim, athletic or voluptuous, it's a good idea to figure out which body type you belong to. Why? So that you set realistic goals in your endeavours to get fit and slim. It is essential to understand your body type so that you know which part of your body needs special attention. So let's find out your body type and how you can get the most from your diet, workouts, and clothes!

Apple shaped body type. If your top is comparatively heavy but you are tiny from the waist down area then you have an apple body type. You have a considerably heavy upper body along with broader than usual shoulders. 
Fitness: Focus on chest, stomach and arms, as this is where fat accumulates for apple shaped people.
Clothes: Take focus away from the top heavier areas. Avoid cleavage-revealing tops, instead go for high neck collars and well-fitted jeans for a slimmer look.

Round body type. People with this kind of a body shape complain of their weight settling right around their tummy and breast area, as well as the upper thigh and hips area.
Fitness: Round shaped body types need to pay attention to fat fighting and fat loss, as no amount of spot targeting through weights and resistance will even out the form.
Clothes: Wear single coloured outfits (tops and bottoms, or dresses), with defined structures to create a well-shaped figure. Knee length skirts work well too.

Hour glass body type. May of us might just die to get a body type like this. People with hour glass figure have a curvy body type with proportionate breasts and hips. 
Fitness: The perfect body type that allows you to focus on muscle tone without worrying too much about fat loss.
Clothes: Frankly, you can wear anything which is well-fitted and it’ll look good on you. 

Athletic body type. People who have a slim and athletic body type are low on curves, and usually appear taller for their height, although some might even be petite. Such people have less percentage of fat in their body and have a narrower bone structure as well.
Fitness: Low body fat means an increased muscle area would serve well for fitness.
Clothes: People with slim body type generally have a small bust size, so padding would help if you want to add to that.
