Dear Diana, I am writing this on behalf of a friend. I am concerned about the way she is going. She is close to me and tells me everything but I think she is going haywire. She has had two boyfriends. One was a neighbour while the other was a cousin's friend. She broke off for some silly reasons with both. Now she tells me she is in love with her boss. He is married and has a kid. She tells me he is willing to dump his wife for her sake. I am appalled by her behaviour. How do I knock sense into her head. She is a bindaas babe. But I think now this is the limit. I don't want her to be a homebreaker. - Ragini

Dear Ragini, I can understand what is going on in your mind. She may be your pal but will she listen to you? You can only advise her and caution her but ultimately it is her decision. Why don't you sit down with her and have a frank chat. She has had her share of boyfriends with whom she broke off for various reasons. But now she is treading in a forbidden zone. She may be in love with him but for him it is an extra-marital affair. You need to tell her that it is not easy being the other woman in someone's life. There is also a small child. She is breaking a home. And more importantly how trustworthy and committed is this man? Tell her to think of the consequences before she takes a decision. It won't be easy for her as well as his family.
