Being born and brought up in India you must be well-aware of the loving, caring, and over-protective nature of your parents. Growing up, they pamper you so very much, always hold close to their heart and fulfill all your wishes at the very first command. They always have full faith in you, wants you to become independent and take important decisions in life. But when it comes to taking their permission to travel solo, inevitably they only have one thing to say- NO.

Apart from the over-protective nature, there are a lot many factors that stop Indian parents from letting their adult kids travel across borders. The increased rate of crime, fear of getting exposed to the harsh world, and media spread hatred are just a few to name. But parents need to understand that when they stop their kids from traveling, they take away a great learning experience and leave them broken hearted. Better education and a stable job may certainly help your kids live a financially stable life. But traveling help them develop a perspective towards life, come out of their comfort zone and make them strong-minded.

So here are a few important factors that prove why Indian parents should let their kids travel solo.

Best Opportunities to Explore

Travel was a luxury and only for rich people in the olden days. But with time, proper planning and thanks to reduced fares, it has become much easier to satisfy your wandering soul. Letting your kids travel to far-off destinations give them the opportunity to explore new, adventurous, and unadulterated places. They get a chance to meet people from different walks of life, get exposure to several cultures and traditions, and learn new languages, which were unknown to them earlier. It gives them the opportunity to actually visit the fascinating places which earlier they only had the privilege to see in pictures and television.

Boosts Confidence and Emotional Growth

When you allow your kids to explore the world, they come back as a more confident, self-assured, and compassionate soul. Once they are out on the road alone, exposed to several raw experiences, they learn to adapt and adjust on their own. They manage things and take important decisions in life that allows them to know their inner-self in a much better way. After traveling the world, one becomes a changed person with much wisdom, freedom, and confidence!!

Helps Come Out Of the Comfort Zone

Staying within the protective boundaries of home amidst the caring family members build a cocoon around your kids and put them in a comfortable zone. Where they remain completely unaware of the challenges and hardships of the outside world and life. Going to unknown destinations makes them completely rely on themselves and test their patience in several ways. Which certainly brings them out of their comfort zone. And coming out of it, help them grow as an individual that let them fight the unforeseen circumstances in life without much mental stress.

Prepares for Bigger Challenges in Life

No trip is ever complete without the obstacles and challenges. Not even a single one. Solving the little problems while traveling solo and coping up with obstacles on their own prepare your kids for the bigger challenges in life. It makes them stronger from inside and helps grow as a traveler and a human being. It helps them understand that they can achieve anything in life once they set their mind and heart for it.

Enriches With Great Experience

Experience is the biggest earning in life, which can never be replaced by the big bank balance or monetary benefits. There are certain lessons we learn from our teachers at school and the elders at home. But there are other lessons that one needs to learn on their own. Backpacking across the world let your kids escape from the monotonous routine and experience a different kind of lifestyle. Where they take on certain responsibilities, struggle a lot and emerge as a winner with a smile at the end. Traveling enrich their life with amazing stories regarding their experiences and transformation, which they love to share with other people.

Travelling is one of the best life experiences that you can have and its benefits are countless. Encourage your kids to travel solo to let them emerge as a strong, humble, and confident human being!!

A life without love is no life at all.

Cinderella Story

What is it about love stories that touch our heart and leave us spellbound? The way they define the zealous love between two souls, their devotion and how passionately they feel for each other. Which often makes people go gaga over them. Of course, love stories are not always the fairy-tales-coming-true because each one of them goes through their fair share of struggles. One such heart-breaking 20th-century love story from the history of Britain is of Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend.

These names may sound similar to you if you have been binge watching Netflix series- The Crown just like me. Just two seasons of this series are out, which gives you more than sneak peeks to the life and history of the royal family and the engaging love story of Peter and Margaret.

Princess Margaret was the younger daughter of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and the sister of Queen Elizabeth II. Peter Townsend was a Royal Air Force officer who served as an equerry to King George VI from 1944 to 1952. There was a huge gap of 16 years between Margaret and Peter but that never stopped them from falling in love with each other. The ethereal beauty, sense of humor and beautiful eyes of Margaret won the heart of Peter and what attracted her towards him that he was a handsome war veteran quite mature than the other boys of her age.

If you dig a bit, you may find several speculative stories regarding the striking romance between these two. Some suggest that their love-affair started in the year 1947 when they accompanied each other to Belfast, Northern Ireland for the christening of Margaret’s first ship, the Edinburgh Castle. Margaret was 17 years old then and Townsend was 32, who was at that time married with two kids. Other stories advise that it was in 1952 after the death of King George VI that Margaret fell in love with Peter after his divorce from his wife.

In 1953, the Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation took place at Westminster Abbey, which was broadcasted to the commoners through television. It was at this event, that a media journalist saw Margaret picking a piece of lint from the lapel of Peter and captured in his camera. Next day, it became a sensational news on the front page of the newspaper and was open to every citizen to discuss the love affair between a royal and a divorced commoner.

Peter proposed Margaret for marriage, but he was not considered the perfect match and their romantic engagement raised quite a few eyebrows in the royal family. Divorce was considered a taboo at that time in the history and the Church of England did not approve of the dissolution of marriage. Queen Elizabeth II was head of the Church who faced obstacles in permitting her sister, Margaret to marry Peter. So a pact was made to keep both of them separate for two years till Margaret turns 25 after which she wouldn’t require the permission of Queen to marry the man of his choice.

After their separation of two years when they met again all ready to start a married life of their own, something undesirable took place. Now to Marry Peter, Margaret had to give up her royal privileges and income and that she would be stripped off her right to the succession of the throne. It was a tough decision to make for Margaret and she decided to not marry Peter that left her brokenhearted. She announced that being a strong follower of Church’s teachings that suggests Christian marriage is indissoluble, she decided not to marry Peter and put her duty to the Commonwealth before everything else. Following which Margaret broke her relationship with Peter in 1955 and the most scandalous marriage of that time never occurred.

It was a sad episode to their dreamy love-story that left both of them heartbroken. Despite the acceptance and support from people, it was crucified for the honor of the royal family. It breaks our heart to see two people not being able to spend their life together who were crazy about each other and went through so much for the sake of their love. But their turbulent romance did contribute to changing British minds about marriage and divorce.

Their story was forgotten over time amidst the affairs of the royal family but never lost its charm, for the matter of fact. If you are keen to observe these characters carefully and want to discover more about their lives, then do catch up the Season 1 and 2 of famous Netflix series, The Crown. You will be highly influenced by witnessing their torrid affair on-screen that actual characters shared in 20th-century in Britain.

Remember the famous dialogue of Geet from the movie Jab We Met- Main Apni Favorite Hoon. It is highly commendable the way she loves and adores herself. Growing up we have been taught to be loving, caring, and compassionate towards others. But hardly anyone taught us the importance of self-love. And often the people who express their self-love openly are seen as egoistic, narcissist, and selfish. That’s the reason why people fear to accept in public how much they love themselves. Can you imagine what a wonderful place this Earth will become where everyone is encouraged to love themselves and embrace their uniqueness? It will help them love others truly and passionately.

What Does Self-Love Actually Mean?

Self-love is often confused with narcissism, but these two are poles apart. A narcissist is absorbed with himself to the degree of insensitivity towards others. On the other hand, self-loving people find so much joy and fulfillment in life that they start sharing it with others. Being a precious human being, you deserve to be loved and respected for who you are. Self-love is the foundation of the important relationship that you share with yourself. To love yourself is the sign of accepting your existence completely and celebrating it. It allows you to accept all your strengths, weaknesses, good, and the bad in you and to be kind to yourself at every step. The way you treat yourself puts an example in front of others and show them how they should treat you and that you won’t settle for anything less than the best. Self-love helps balance your mind, body, and spirit that brings coherence, which benefits you in leading a better life. Once you start loving yourself, you get to know your worth that gives the confidence to realize your passions, dreams, and goals in life.

When you start a relationship with your desirable partner, you can feel the happiness knocking at your door and the entire universe celebrating your unison. Things do get a bit bumpy after a point of time, but that’s completely fine because conflicts are necessary to make any relationship strong and worthy. But what if little conflicts take the shape of big fights that become a part of the routine? What if your relationship didn’t get back on track properly? What if you start feeling that your partner create unnecessary drama by manipulating your thoughts and actions? That your relationship has lost its charm and has turned into a toxic one. If you are also going through this complex phase in life, then it is high time you find a healthy way to end the drama for good.

Drama in a relationship is the situation or an emotional state where one or both partners create an uncomfortable environment through manipulation. Let’s have a look at how to stop or end drama to create a long-term enjoyable relationship.

Don’t Misjudge Drama

Often in real life, the drama is confused with the way to keep the chase alive. People believe unless they have dramatic experiences all the time they are not fully living their relationship, which is not quite true. It can be highly addictive as you don’t have to take responsibility for your melodramatic actions, but slowly and eventually it eats away your relationship. Where occasional drama can add a spark to your relationship, the regular dose of drama can ruin it along with your mental peace and stability. So avoid making it a part of your routine!!

Deal With It in Undramatic Ways

Eliminating drama from your relationship is necessary, but it is important to choose an undramatic approach to do it. Whenever you face a dramatic situation, observe it carefully instead of reacting to it. Try to get into the depth of the matter and come up with a logical solution for it. Doing so will quiet your mind and have a huge impact on others as well. Even your partner will be attracted towards your way of avoiding drama and dealing with it peacefully.

Communication Is the Key

It is crucial to recognize what the drama is all about, what causes it, and what keeps it going. Most of the time, the drama is about getting upset over a small thing that was blown out of proportion. You expect something to happen in a certain way and when it doesn’t that upsets you a lot. Communicating with your partner about feeling angry or hurt in a healthy or neutral way can actually help you get over it. It helps your partner to observe their behavior characteristics that are the reason for drama in your relationship. They acknowledge it and assure to avoid them for maintaining the sanity in a relationship.

Settle Down the Tornado of Emotions

Drama in a relationship can make both the partners furious. But a wise step would be- if one person is going through the roller coaster of emotions, then another one should manage his/her emotional reactivity. He/she should try to make the other one realize that unnecessary drama will get you nowhere and plague your relationship. One can also try noticing his/her moods and behavioral pattern. Try to stay calm. Take a deep breath. Don’t shoot text or emails on impulse that you may regret later.

Let It Go

When we encounter drama in a relationship, it influences our mind and thought process, which is hard to avoid. There are so many problems that can be resolved with proper communication and efforts. And there are others that you just have to let go. You can only control the way you react to certain things and try to make amendment in your way of handling situations. You cannot control the way another person responds or reacts. Focus your energy on areas that enhance your productivity, take your attention away from unnecessary situations and maintain your peace of mind.

Be confident about what you want in a relationship and bring necessary changes to make it healthy and drama-free!!
