Love-ly affair
This is just another day when both of them will go out for dinner. She dresses up, nothing special, only adding an extra layer of kohl in her eyes. Both drive down to a restaurant, not talking much. He looks at her admiringly, something she is witnessing after a long time. They take their place on the 'reserved' table. She buries herself behind the menu card and in a split second he is on his knees with a flower in hand -'you are the most precious part of my life.' A moment that gets engraved in the heart forever! Here are some people sharing their special moments with us.

Manjit Indira Angst, anguish & rebellion
Punjabi poetess Manjit Indira is a born rebel, a woman who dares to call spade a spade. Only as she brings out her new book of poetry Roh Vidroh after a gap of eight years, the voice of rebellion is steeped in deep anguish. Pained by the happenings around her, she registers her protest not just against the subservient position of women in society, but other injustices too. Says she, "I am a woman…call me a feminist voice if you wish but that doesn't mean I am not a human being."
