Post and comments


  1. I just stumbled across your post on monogamy – viz. the Matuknath scandal. Yes, I’ve not been following the news nearly as well as I should, and I heard of the Matuknath scandal just now.

    You said that the male is becoming less and less monogamous. But, I beg to differ. Human beings, as a species, are not biologically monogamous. If we were, why do we even feel attracted to a man/woman who is not our chosen ‘mate for life’?

    ahh..siddhu thats like opening up a pandoras box. Being attracted is one thing. Taking that to another level where adultery then gets to be the dictat is what one is referrng to in the post you mention. Life is all aboout not falling prey to inexplicable desires. Restraint is the key sign of a developed and mature mind. Loyalty has to be the foremost committment in a marriage. In fact marriage inherently connotes curtailment of a footlose and fancy free life. If that is not an acceppted mode of conduct then one should desist from getting into the marriage mode till such time that one is able to free the innate , as you call it human tendencies.BTw that applies to women as well 🙂

    And feel free to use the ‘child bear’..have to visit your blog to see how you could have used that as your profile 🙂

    thanks for dropping by..
