MyContinue reading “My Baby Turns One!”

Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #30

Day 30 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021 We really need to stop glamourising men who don’t slap/cheat/misbehave/mistalk. It is normal. It is human. With this we come to the end of the series. And although I have to say, and you have to admit that these are but snippets of our societal discrimination. It is impossible that aContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #30”

Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #24

Day 24 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021 Juggling responsibilities has been a constant confusion. I wonder why!

It is all unrealistic, all inhuman. #qotd Do youContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #24”

Why We Need Feminism in 2021#7

Personally, I do not mind if one calls me Mrs. Master or Aunt Malaprop for that matter. But I find it wrong that women still need to be addressed in regard to their relationship status. Why don’t we just remove all ther other jazz and stick with Ms. Also, I gave in to the trendContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021#7”

Why We Need Feminism In 2021 #5

#qotd when was the first time you heard the term ‘Paraya dhan’ or the fact that you will be ‘given away’ when you get married. #aotd I was 12 years old when I heard the term paraya dhan or ‘parki thapan’ to be precise which is almost equivalent in Gujarati.

One Breath AT A Time

Trying to find my balance in an absolutely imbalanced world. I can’t see it but there has to be, has to to be some thin thread of hope that I can cling to, hold on to. Untill that thin reality flows in, let the universe spin, but I will stand on my values, the oneContinue reading “One Breath AT A Time”
