The last swan song | Friday Fiction |

Adjusting her Saree palla one last time, she walked confidently into a room full of her peers. The ballroom at Taj Palace was abuzz with conversation, laughter and clinking of glasses as the busy servers sashayed around the room, balancing platters laden with food, drinks and used glasses. She glanced around, exchanging smiles and nods […]

[ #Opinion ] Image Shaming | #Guestpost by Sanch |

He’s a stud, she’s a slut! Picture this: a twenty-something single guy. Working in a job he enjoys. Paying bills. Living in a share house. Catching up with mates after work or on the weekends. Meeting girls either via Tinder or through his mates. He doesn’t want to be tied down in a relationship. He […]

[ #Opinion ] Body Shaming | #Guestpost by Anonymous |

I grew up surrounded by love. Doted on by Dida and Dadu (my maternal grandparents), with Choto Mashi (younger maternal aunt), stitching clothes for my dolls; and the two of us eating chaat together in the evenings. Life was very, very good. Both Ma and Baba (my parents) were working, but I didn’t feel short-changed […]

It’s in the genes I guess. A skeleton which weighs all of 69 kilos as multiple body analyses have reconfirmed. An inherited sluggish thyroid gland. And yet despite a thyroxin supplement and a reasonably ‘light‘ diet ( includes dairy and occasionally eggs ) but no non vegetarian food,  limited fat,  alcohol on rare occasions and […]

Lord of the Files snips my work wings | #barathon |

When I wanted to flex my career wings and step out of the homely cocoon to find work in a metropolis like New Delhi, I faced vociferous objections from the parental authorities. “It’s unsafe for women!” “Men prey on a women’s vulnerabilities and coerce them to do things.” “Marriage and kids is a safer/better thing.

THE FAULT IN OUR STARES There! Look at it! She has pierced her eyebrow. What on earth is wrong with these people? Nudge. Wink. Point with lifted eyebrows n tilt of head – object of our introspection – a midriff exposed on a thin young girl in the mall. He has a tattoo – did […]

Love, Stalk, Kill! { Women Safety } #MondayMusings

Even as we were rejoicing the confirmation of the death penalty for Nirbhayata’s rapists, another horrific rape filled the timelines. This time it was from Rohtak, Haryana where a man and his cronies abducted, raped, mutilated and killed a girl who had refused to marry him. That this came so close on the heels of […]
