Dear Girls, Marriage is so much More than the Wedding Day!

The below post has been published on Women’s Web and was selected as a Featured Post. I was watching the popular English sitcom Friends the other day and a dialog of Monica’s on her brother’s wedding made me stop and take notice. She said “Ross, how long have you been thinking of this wedding? Emily […]

The Great Indian Kitchen – MovieReview. MUST WATCH!

A hard hitting story that tempts you in with droolworthy images of delicious treats, catches you unawares, and throws you headlong into the abyss of what it actually means to be a woman running a household in India. Director Jeo Baby’s ‘The Great Indian Kitchen’ hit the OTT platform Neestream on the 15th of Jan […]

Are there ‘acceptable’ limits to sexual offenses?

Judgements like these possibly undermine the problematic thought processes our society harbours against girls and women and can set very dangerous precedents.

Sudha rushed into her room and shut the door close. Putting all her weight against it, she took deep long breaths even as tears threatened to erupt.
