As 2014 comes to a close, we’ve had a wonderful year of bringing you engaging, enriching, entertaining reads here at Women’s Web. We published almost a 1000 posts on subjects as varied as Work, Parenting, Social Issues, Women’s Rights, Books, Health & Leisure activities, accomplished a complete site revamp including a mobile-ready site, got a whole new accomplished bunch of writers to sign up as authors here…in short, had a blessed year, although with its fair share of challenges.
I thought it would be great to wind up the year with a list of the 10 most popular reads published this year on Women’s Web. You’ve possibly come across some of them before, but you may have missed a few as well. So, here is our ‘Blockbuster’ list for you to read, share and enjoy!

Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
