A writer/author by hobby and a former Indian Diplomat. I am 55 years and a Graduate in Political Science Honors from Sri Venkateswara College, Delhi University as also a Post Graduate in Sociology from Annamalai University. I am the Great Grandson of Late Mr. M.S. Purnalingam Pillai, BA, LT, Emeritus Professor of English, Bishop Heber College, Trichinopoly who authored 27 works in English including Madras University Papers on Shakespeare’s Plays, Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare, Stories from Goldsmith, Socretes and Plato and Evolutional Ethics, Julius Caesar, Othello – with introduction and full notes, Digest of Roman Law, The Ten Tamil Saints, History of England, etc. and 16 works in Tamil including Surapadman, Avvai Kural, Seyyul Kovai, Viveka Vilakkam, Panniru Penmanigal, Kathai and Karpanai (Story & Dream), Navaraathri Lectures, Kamatchi, Tamil Essays or Sitrurais, etc. I am interested in writing on topics of varied interests and for the time being I keep Politics and Religion out of my purview. My recent book titled ‘Nature…Human Nature…Animal Instinct’ published by M/s BlueRoseONE Publishers is available in Print and e-Book formats in various Book Stores and in Online Platforms such as Amazon & Flipkart as also in Amazon global platform and various other global publishers. The habit of writing articles started way back from 1986 when write-ups were submitted for publication initially in ‘Monday Diary’ column of Indian Express Newspaper and then other National-level newspapers. Writing is my passion and as and when ideas come, I pour it out in black and white and feel contented when the same gets published. My innumerable blogs are available in subbiahsridhars.blogspot.com and myvoice.opindia.com. I wish to achieve a remarkable success in the field of writing and publication of various Articles, Write-ups and Books solely penned by me. Writing is my passion and my view is that if one has come to this world, one should contribute some good thoughts for the benefit of others. I love nature watching and in fact many of my articles find a mention about the behavior of various flora and fauna and revolve around the environment. I also keep thinking and writing about celestial bodies and their movement and try to write something about the mysteries surrounding them about which our knowledge is too meagre.

In the present-day world, there is virtually growing intolerance or nearly zero tolerance power among the couples. There is hardly any social-religious sanctity of marriage, be it an arranged marriage or a love marriage. And, alas, there is this new emerging concept of live-in relationship. They seem nothing but relegated to the same level as any business event together with being given a nice professional touch. The concept of equality whether existing in any other field or not, there is equality as far as sharing of household chorus is concerned, be it voluntarily or under compulsion, be it among the normally married couple or other new style couples and there is no scope to say no or utter a single word in the present circumstances owing but naturally to the fact that both couple are going out for work or busy work-from-home, to make both ends meet in this otherwise pricey world and now there is no such system of specific domestic work allocation like females will be taking care of kitchen and other household work and work outside home to be the purview of male partner. 

Thanks also to some extent to the trend of online shopping, free home delivery and what not. Now, hardly anyone needs to move out of sofa or chair for any purpose – be it work from home, online shopping, home delivery of vegetables, fast food, etc. and nor is there any need to go to even bank for remitting money etc. and thanks once again to the digital age of plastic cards and other payment modes be it UPI, PayTM, et al. Seeing the working ladies, even housewife/home makers have started their own business from home such as laundry, stitching clothes, preparing bakery items, or running beauty parlors, etc. all on voluntary basis and thus leading a more social life and putting the male spouse to work equally with them in undertaking domestic chorus, even if it be on Online mode. If some sort of friction emerges in division of work, it only leads but to bitterness in marriage life or even among the live-in couples, in the present-day world. 

In a lighter vein, it is said wife is ‘cute’ only if she is ‘mute’ or, for that matter, a hubby is considered ‘honey’ only if he has ‘money’. Another change fast emanating is that the age-old concept of joint family system is all fast diminishing and the day is not far when the mention of such term ‘joint family system’ may find place only in history books of children or while filing one’s Income Tax Returns (ITRs) where there is option of Hindu Undivided Family (HUF). 

Another new found phenomenon now is that one should stay bachelor or a spinster, as the case may be, forever and enjoy the bliss of the world. If at all not a bachelor or spinster, at least there is a feeling among the new generation that the ‘would be spouse’ should be selected of their own choice and there should hardly be any sort of interference from anyone whosoever it be, not even intervention of any sort from the birth-giver (viz., parents) in this regard. The growing trend now-a-days on the pretext of being ‘open-minded’ is the rising thought of ‘live-in’ relationship(s) and deciding on whether he/she is to one’s taste or not, before actual consummation leading to marriage and to continue in such live-in relationship as long as needed and be fresh and happy as there are no compulsions, complications or bondage as in the concept of marriage. 

There is another instinct finding place among humans when they go for homosexual activities in opposition to nature-destined heterosexual or bisexual one. Many countries now have even legalized the marriage between gay couple and those between lesbians and there are even associations existing to fight for their rights. There are many gay and lesbian couples who feel proud to say so in this modern world and there is fast diminishing social stigma even. All said and done, it is felt where this world is leading to now? It is true that day by day the population in this world is growing at an alarming rate but this cannot of course be the solution if at all, to stop the ever-growing population. 

These are some recent proclivities emerging in society. Presently, there are such emerging trends and in fact a revolution is under way, where gadgets large and small are changing our life, thought and concern for society. At the same time, it can be said that the fast-changing ways or social behavior has its own negative impacts on the concept of healthy development of society. It is high time serious attention is paid to this new emerging trend and help in saving the society and human continuance at this juncture lest it will be too late and will definitely be detrimental to the health of society to say the least and even a challenge to the continued existence of humankind.
