Change your approach to make a difference

I am a 26-year-old girl and my problem is my older sister. She interferes in everybody’s lives and is also two-faced. She was married but left her in-laws’ home and is now staying with us. Her husband is abroad and they have a kid. After the delivery, the doctor advised my sister to consult a psychiatrist because of her complaints about her in-laws. We did not do this. Her intention is to take over the house.

Move on and embrace life anew

A. I think you are a great guy. You have your priorities in place and that is wonderful. I think she has given her response.

Be optimistic in toughest of times

I am 21 years old. My parents are not together but not divorced either. I was brought up to enjoy a good lifestyle, but when my father left us he made it clear that if my brother and I wanted financial security, we should leave our mother. This was wrong because it was he who was at fault.

Take the right decisions

Q. I have a concern about which I need your advice, as I am a little confused. I work in a transport office and I have one good friend. We both work in the same team. There is a girl who also works in our team.

Link pride and joy with work

Q. I am a telecom engineer and I have worked in this company for over two-and-a-half years. I have made a few good friends who seem to be friends for life. Amongst them are two girls. We’re just friends, and they’ll get married and move out some day. One of my other friends is already moving out. I feel stagnant working here since there’s not much growth in my career path. I want to take up a job elsewhere and grow. But the thought that I have to leave the company and these few close friends is unbearable. Though I know that nothing is permanent, I’m not able to make a firm decision to move on. Please help me.

Heartbreak is not the end

Q. I am a B.Tech student and I am in love with a girl to whom I proposed. She asked me if we could be friends for a while and I agreed.

The secret to prosperity, success and fame

Q. I’m 15 and have a common problem. I had a crush on a guy who used to be good friends with me. When he got to know that I had a crush on him he just stopped talking to me. It didn’t tear me apart but I keep thinking about him. I’m ashamed of myself for feeling like this. Please show me a way out of this. My exams are going on and I need to concentrate.

Realise the strength of optimism

Q.I am a 21-year-old girl studying engineering. Last year, I got some subjects in backlog and I am not allowed to attend the college. My parents are not aware of this. My problem is that I want to leave engineering and do some other course. Please tell me how I can convince my parents to agree to this.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
