Are you one of them? Chalo yoga karte hain. Maine naya naya seekha hai. This asana involves standing straight, looking into the eyes of the person in front of you, slowly raising your right hand and landing it on his or her left cheek in a swift motion. I call it chaantasana, or for the faaltu firangs among you who claim to not understand basic hindi — the slap asana. Advanced followers of this practice can also learn the second part of this posture that involves physically lifting the target and throwing them out of sight, but you need to build adequate stamina and strength to reach that stage.

I got the idea to write about it when I observed a young guy in the office cafeteria yelling at his mom because she had made the mistake of calling him to ask how to send an audio message through Whatsapp. Aapko samajh toh aayega nahi. Also, the tone in which he said it.
But it did make me realise and feel guilty about the several times when even I may have lost patience while helping my parents understand new technologies that keep hitting us every day. Until one day, when a younger cousin rolled his eyes at me when I asked him about an app that I was unfamiliar with.
It may have caused her stress. But like most moms, she just smiled and said I was right. Read on The same goes for the operating systems of the various phones and gadgets we use. The fact that most of you so easily adapt to a new platform or gadget is not because you are some undiscovered Einstein. And because you are constantly, almost 24x7, using these gadgets.
But unlike most of you, people who did not have these gadgets in their hands , as constant fixtures, have to start from scratch. Hence, they find it tough and intimidating, and often struggle with the basics. So, now that the roles stand reversed and you get to be the teacher, you better treat them with the same love and patience that they showed for you.
For those of you who have never experienced the joy of seeing an old person discover the magic of the internet, I recommend Ganga snaan and immediate penance. Trust me, it is the most beautiful thing when the eyes of your grandparents light up on discovering that they can message their friends or relatives anywhere in the world and get an instant response, for free.
They may make a lot of mistakes initially, and you may get frustrated or embarrassed. But I still have that message preserved, because for me, that leap into new technology which my mom took would remain cherished forever. Being able to give back to someone, who patiently taught you everything you know in life, does.
But believe me, the little effort of spending an hour every week in making your elders proficient in technology goes a long way in making your own life much easier and enriched. While for them, being on social media brings up a new universe to explore joyfully, it also opens several new avenues for you to communicate with your ageing parents. A lot of my friends who were too busy to call their mom or dad often, now regularly chat with them on Whatsapp. So promise me — no more making faces, rolling eyes or being all sarcastic about an elder person struggling with the basics of technology.

A Calmer You, By Sonal Kalra: Don’t buckle under the pressure to marry
I got the idea to write about it when I observed a young guy in the office cafeteria yelling at his mom because she had made the mistake of calling him to ask how to send an audio message through Whatsapp. Aapko samajh toh aayega nahi.

Until one day, when a younger cousin rolled his eyes at me when I asked him about an app that I was unfamiliar with.
Hundreds of emails poured in from doctors from all over. Matlab itni khushi hui ki mann kiya surgeries free mein karwa loon. Jokes apart, the feedback gave me such moving insight into the kind of stressful conditions our docs work under. Basking in all the love from the docs also made me dig out some pieces from the past that a lot of you related to — some on more serious issues and some that simply whined about annoying human behaviour.
A Calmer You, by Sonal Kalra: Sachcha pyaar, really?
Run the person through these five tests to see if they fit the bill. He sends me a mail every two months. I have several problems with Mukundan. Maybe, just maybe, this shy awkwardness is not letting sachcha pyaar stay on in his life for long. Who knows. Vaise who knows what sachcha pyaar is, in the first place.
