Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
A young woman very sarcastically makes it a point why Kate Winslet's 'no-photoshop' clause in her new contract is so important.
A young woman very sarcastically makes it a point to ask why Kate Winslet’s ‘no-photoshop’ clause in her new contract is so important.
Why is it a big deal that Kate Winslet has asked for a ‘no-Photoshop’ clause? With skin as flawless as hers and the kind of body she still has, which is to kill for, even though she is 40, she hardly needs Photoshop.

And the same goes for all the actresses, all these fair skinned, super skinny babes, who say they don’t want to advertise fairness creams or go overboard with dieting.

And, of course, as we learned in our school cliques, it’s the beautiful, tall girls who are popular, not the plain, fat, boring girls like me.

When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
