Why is Pink equal to women?

Why is Pink equal to women?
It isn't just the desi authorities who're hell bent on pinkifying women's transport, the stereotype extends across China and Paris too.

We know women travellers in Delhi swear by their ladies-only compartment and their ladies-only seats. The Delhi Transport Corporation, after increasing the number of women's seats in buses, has come up with a not-so- innovative plan to ensure that women get access to these seats: the seats will be coloured in, no surprises here, pink. We at DT are all for seats reserved for women to make our daily commuting less of a suffering than what it used to be, but we don't get the authority's obsession with the colour pink - from the pink autos of Gurgaon to the pink buses for the Noida commuters or the pink labelling for the women's compartment in the metro.

One would hope that everyone is over the cliched pink-for-girls and blue-for-boys stereotype. But as far as the transport model goes, that is certai…

Women you should never date

Women you should never date

Make sure you avoid women of these sorts, to stay out of trouble. We tell you why

Your ex-girlfriend

It's best not to revisit a past relationship if things did not end well. Primarily because, you two were incompatible and had some serious issues, which would still be a bone of contention, if you were to get together. It's easy to fancy an ex in a moment of weakness, especially when you are lonely, and you may choose to forget the reason why you broke up and jump back in the relationship, only to regret it.

Your best friend's sister

Avoid getting involved with your best bud's sister. Not only will it destroy your friendship with your closest pal, if things don't work out, you are also likely to be at risk of being punched in the face for hurting his little sister. Also, you can forget about crying on his shoulder when things are not going great between you and his sister, as there's a direct conflict of interest here, and he may not…

Signs he is cheating on you

Approximately 30 to 60 percent of men will cheat on their spouses, according to numerous studies.

It has been revealed that for every six men who will cheat, there are four men who will be faithful, the Huffington Post reported.

It should come as no surprise that some men cheat. Whether it's the President of the United Sates, the top golfer in the world or a world class musician, it's a proven fact that when it comes to cheating on their spouses, some men just can't keep it in their pants.

Guys who cheat are pretty transparent and predictable. In fact, there are three major signs that accurately predict if a guy will cheat on you.

Firstly he's secretive. Guys who cheat often lead double lives, and in order to do so, they have to cover their tracks.

A guy who is secretive and doesn't reveal much about himself or his life is a guy who is a prime candidate to be featured on an upcoming episode of " Cheaters."

Communication and the willingness to be an open …

When it comes to wooing a lady, older men are said to score over the younger ones

According to a recent survey, men — like fine wine and cheese — just get better with age. The survey claims that at 53, men become more romantic and are more likely to surprise their partners with romantic symbols such as roses, champagne and poetry.

Many experts, however, dispute this. Romance, they say, is all in the mind and has really nothing to do with age. Claiming that it's all about eagerness, some experts opine that if a man really likes someone, he will be more than eager to indulge her with romantic gestures, no matter how old or how young he is.

They reason that younger men are less likely to go in for romantic gestures is because they could just go wrong. Experts reason that older men may have tried and tested formulae, which younger men are yet to master. Hence, they add, if a young woman feels that the men she is dating a…
