Popular and articulate parenting blogger Starry won second prize at the Women’s Web My Favourite Female Contest with this entry. She blogs at Things do not change…until we change.
The first character I recalled when I saw the Women s Web Favourite Females contest announcement was Anne Shirley/Blythe. Hmm , I thought. That s a children s series, and there s nothing extraordinary about Anne . Nevertheless, she s my first favourite female character. The series of 8 books starts with Anne of Green Gables and now also a prequel that I d reviewed here. An elderly brother and sister in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, 19th century Canada adopt a feisty carrot-haired eleven year old and there begins the tale of Anne Shirley s life all the way to when she s a mother of six grown-up children. So what is it that s inspiring to me about Anne?
She s a dreamer. She builds wistful castles in Spain, and spins fantasies and tales in the unlikeliest of situations and using commonplace people. When she reads, she lives the characters in the books.
She imagines. She changes realities she doesn t like, whether it s the nose on someone s face, or the face of her Prince Charming. She tells one of her twin daughters in Anne of Ingleside that often a flight of imagination has helped her solve problems and escape from harsh reality. But she advises her to harness her imagination, not allow it to control her, as had happened in the child s fantasies.

While marriage brings with it its own set of responsibilities for both partners, it is often the woman who needs to so all the adjustments.
For a 25-year-old women — who tied the knot in March-2014 — the love come arranged marriage brought with it a new city, and also the “responsibility of managing household chores“.
Prior to her marriage, she learned to cook after marriage as her husband “doesn’t cook”.
“I struggled and my husband used to tell me that it would turn out better the next time. Now, I am much a better cook,” said the mother to a three-and-a-half-month-old, who chose to work from home after marriage.
Jaane Jaan is a great standalone flick, but a lot of it could have been handled better, and from the POV of the main character.
Jaane Jaan is a thriller streaming on Netflix and is adapted from Keigo Higashino’s book, ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’. I found the film to be riveting, with a nail-biting build-up. However, in my personal opinion, the climax and the treatment of the female lead was a letdown.
Disclaimer: I haven’t read the book yet, and I am not sure how true the adaptation has stayed to the source material.
(SPOILERS AHEAD. Please read after you watch the movie if you are planning to)
