Matters of Faith Suit the Majority in India - By Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay Sep 30,The Quint Paradoxical though this may sound, but the Supreme Court verdict turning down the plea to send the Ismail Faruqui case to a larger Constitutional Bench, may eventually eliminate extraneous matters which have complicated what is quintessentially a civil dispute and force future hearings to the core issue. This is the same case where the apex court made the sweeping assertion that "a mosque is not an essential part of the practice of the religion of Islam". From a fundamental question of ownership or title of the disputed structure or the landall sorts of faith related questions have been added to complicate an already byzantine legal maze. The return to the title suit now pending for almost seven decades, which will be heard from October 29 by a newly constituted bench, marks new hope for arriving at a judgement aimed at settling the original dispute.
Babywoods is a year old! At any rate, our bebe crested her first annual milestone in late November and we feted her in style. I have heard—and seen—tell of some lusciously adorned first birthday parties. It seems the pressure to create a magical, opulent birthday experience for our kids has now extended to one-year-olds.
Folks, this is going too far. Plus, if you hire a pony for a first birthday party, how exactly do you top yourself the next year? It sets a dangerous—not to mention expensive—precedent. But it was tempered, brief in keeping with her attention spanand really, really cheap. Things like birthday parties are not an all or nothing proposition.
Rather, it encourages us to get creative and identify ways to fully enjoy life absent the rampant consumerism touted by the mainstream. Frugality encourages a third way—it places us in between deprivation and consumption.
It is the practice of finding enough and embracing contentment. Frugalwoods, Babywoods, Frugal Hound, and my mother-in-law, father-in-law, and sister-in-law.
We blew out the candle together, Babywoods licked all the frosting off, took a few bites of cake, and promptly dropped the rest in her lap.
As you can see, this cake was not—ahem—all that attractive to put it mildly… and now we know why I am not a food blogger. FW said it looked like a stack of hamburgers with mayonnaise smeared on top. There is no perfection with a homemade cake—at least, not with one made by moi.
I find that the more we spend, the more we expect. And high expectations are almost never met to their fullest. She has no idea. We decided to give ourselves a pass on gifts for both her birthday and Christmas this year. Ok, there were more photos. This was a totally unnecessary and superfluous activity, but I wanted an excuse to dress her up like a cream puff and snap photos.
Naturally, there was zero crafting involved, knowing as we do that I display remarkable ineptitude and loathing where crafts are concerned. We kept it simplestress-free, and thrifty.
My weakness is taking photos, perhaps yours is party planning! FW and I have chosen. You need to decide how you want to raise your child.
You went through the hard work to bring them into this world—either through labor or adoption—and they are your responsibility. Respectfully explain your wishes and be firm. Then, present a united front to the world and stand strong. After all, no one will care how you lived your life as much as you will and—dare I add—your children.
There was no renting out of a skating rink or hiring of a magician. The last year I had such a party? Oh yes, we were the cool kids.
One memorable year, my dad and I blew up balloons and put them in the rec room and then my friends and I ran around tossing balloons at each other for a good two hours.
You should know we were eleven years old at the time. So what if all the other parents are doing it? And you know what?
I kind of bet kids will have a fabulous time just, you know, being kids. There was an error submitting your subscription. None of that here. Powered by ConvertKit You may also like- Inter-School Hindi Fest Rochak On the occasion of Hindi Divas on 14th September , students from Stds.
