#metoo

Writing after ages... could not stop myself from penning down something on #metoo movement! This whole #metoo thing is certainly scary, actually the incidents are so terrifying!  Growing up I used to think that it's only me who gets assaulted, I used to blame myself thinking maybe I do something wrong, maybe my behavior (unusually chirpy) push people to behave absurdly with me... I remember while walking on the road, my Mom used to say look down and walk but even then I used to get a spank on my bums (yes! Ask any girl in UP and they will tell you it's very very common). Why just bums, if you walk without covering your chest with your books, they would not even shy away from touching your breasts and sometimes, spanking them so badly that it would pain for hours! Does it sound weird? Not to us - the small town girls! And you want to hear more - we have seen people randomly coming and masturbating in front of our eyes at an age when we didn't even know what actua

“People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it." ―  Matt Chandler Probably this is true and I actually believe in it very strongly. It's not love what people look out for - its jus that infatuation, those butterflies in the stomach, that excitement, that thrill, that desperation, that anticipation. Actually more than half of the love stories meet an unpleasant and terrible end, the moment all this enthusiasm and drama is gone from a relationship. Sad! but true. We no more (not generalizing), have those 'forever' happy afters. We no more have those relationships with the promise of being together for 7 births.  We don't even understand this word we use so frequently, called ‘Love’... its just not an emotion, its just not a feeling. It's beyond t

Padmavati, oops Padmavat Row

I just happened to stroll by my blog today after an year and guess what, I got so many surprises. Few of them are listed below: 1. The number of views has increased by leaps and bounds 2. Getting more comments on my posts like never before 3. I am still getting good average views per day, despite the fact that I have not written from last one year. But... but the biggest surprise was - I wrote about Padmavati row just one year before, on 28th Jan' 17... and here I am, on this blog (accidentally) exactly after one year, and the topic remains the same - Padmavati. I mean, seriously for us a movie is a such a huge issue that we stretched it for one year? ONE FULL YEAR... I mean, even Nirbhaya (i believe the worst thing that happened to our nation in recent times), was also forgotten in about 3-4 months. People stopped protesting and went back to their regular lives in just a few days and here we are, shamelessly dragging an irrelevant issue for over a year now. Today I read

The unforgivable act of violence!

Humanity has touched another low with the incident that happened in Jaipur, where Sanjay Leela Bhansali was assaulted while shooting for Padmavati. This horrifying incident did not just left everybody shocked, but also devastated, because it is a proof that things are going to get worse in our country. The day this incident happened will go down as a sad day in the history of India, when such illiterate goons with no inkling of facts or history attack anything that doesn't agree to their beliefs or doesn't go parallel to what they think is right. The incident forced us to think if we really are living in a democratic sovereign country. Well, atleast that was the last thing we heard of... Animals do that!! Attacking, killing. We are humans, why are we forgetting this day by day. Guess, its time to remove the tag of 'civilised' from our species. And to everybody's dismay, such incidents are on a rise now. No amount of differences in opinion justifies this ho
