Warp and woof of attraction and repulsion harnessing space and time

The idea of soul kinship is so utopian that one skips it as a poetic liberty in the same way one wades through hundreds of sex related news items with nonchalance. Love, like loyalty, is an irrational domain and it is impossible for the human mind to fathom the mystery of how the warp and woof of attraction and repulsion actually work by suitably harnessing space and time. For instance, vivid accounts of love feelings in the autobiographical writings of Barindra Kumar Ghose show how physical proximity leads to relationships. Social media, today, offers similar facilities to countless individuals who are far away from each other.

Despite the talk of women empowerment, the sense of insecurity in women generates various anomalous situations in work places. This gets accentuated when a woman is the head. This should be tolerated as in general life but, more often than not, it takes a toll on quality, merit, and delivery. There is no easy way for solving this contradiction which poses the greatest challenge to any pursuit of perfection. It's relevant, in this context, to recall the following post dated March 18, 2010.

Near-elimination of male teachers from co-ed public schools has spawned serious distortions within the educational environment affecting the psychological well-being of the students. Savitri Era Party demands ensuring reasonable reservation for male teachers in every school at the secondary level. 1:58 PM [TNM55]

There is a deep religious ingrained notion that unbeliever women can be had as per liking or as spoils of war. Hard to change such mindset

Victoria Turk @VickiTurk Nov 8, 2012 - Men and women CAN be friends - men are just more likely to want more. A scientific survey has claimed that different genders can't be friends with each other, but real-life proves this wrong.

By Adrian F. Ward on October 23, 2012 New research suggests that there may be some truth to this possibility—that we may think we're capable of being “just friends” with members of the opposite sex, ... Daily experience suggests that non-romantic friendships between males and females are not only possible, but common—men and women live, work, and play side-by-side, and generally seem to be able to avoid spontaneously sleeping together. However, the possibility remains that this apparently platonic coexistence is merely a fa├žade, an elaborate dance covering up countless sexual impulses bubbling just beneath the surface.

by EDDIE KAUFHOLZ Jun 3, 2015 - You can't be best friends with someone of the opposite sex. You just can’t—not long-term at least. Because while some folks (me included) make it work for a while, there comes a point where the best friendship stands in direct challenge to a romantic relationship. Put another way, the best friend—if truly a best friend—occupies the same space that a significant other can (and should) occupy. And if those people don’t occupy the same space, then one of the two parties is being cheated.

Men and women can't be real friends. Blame the sexual tension that almost inevitably exists between any red-blooded, heterosexual man and woman. Point to the jealousy that plagues many rational people when a significant other befriends someone of the opposite sex. Boil it down to the inherent differences between the sexes. It just can't be done. Right? Wrong, relationship experts have said.


Huffington Post‎ - 04/04/2016 It’s not entirely clear why these gender disparities exist, but researchers have considered a range of sources, including varying biology, psychology, genetics, family environment, social status, workforce participation and a lack of “existential security” felt by many women because they generally are more afflicted than men by poverty, illness, old age and violence, Pew said.

8. Loyalty from Philosophy Talk: The Blog - Jul 17, 2010 posted by Ken Taylor at 5:55 PM

Loyalties can also divide a person from herself. Loyalty and devotion to your family, for example, can pull in one direction, while loyalty to an employer can pull you in an entirely different direction. Managing such conflicting loyalties is no easy task... Speaking of abstract moral principles, though, depending on your moral outlook, the very idea of loyalty can seem morally problematic.

People use/abuse social media as per their perception. For me, I admire SM because thru this I got connected to some solid folks. Jai Ma.

NEW YORK: Asserting that women in the workplace and society deserve equal treatment, PepsiCo's India-born CEO Indra Nooyi today said she "hates" being called "sweetie" or "honey" and women should be treated as executives or people and not called such names."We still have to have equal treatment. I hate being called sweetie or honey at times which I still am called. All that has got to go. We have got to be treated as executives or people rather than (being called) honey, sweetie, babe. That has to change," Nooyi said at the Women In the World Summit presented by renowned journalist and author Tina Brown in association with the New York Times.
