Think about size. Is small always beautiful? No. Beautiful can be of any size.
Beautiful, here, need not be about the standard idea of bodily beauty. It could be inner beauty. It could be the beauty of new life – tiny in its size, but huge in its potential. It could be the beauty of a child who might be what is called an ‘old soul’ – someone who shows a promise and achievement beyond the years. A short, succinct phrase can often convey a meaning that might not really come across in a longer sentence.
It works the other way too. Many swear by the larger format of a test match, as against the T20 format that finishes much too soon – though that certainly has its own excitement.
It need not be the extremes of small or big either! An ordinary, everyday experience of life might conceal multitudes of beauty within, which might not be in a supposedly extraordinary one.
Women come in all sizes and shapes. It is not necessary that standard sizes in clothes available in the market fit all. This is the ordinary urban Indian woman’s experience – difficulties in finding a brand of clothes that fit her, on account of being a pear-shaped/tall willowy type/stocky body type. (You may consider your own body type here). You find that it is difficult to find clothes that fit you, which you need to get tailored every time, the effort eating into your already busy schedule.
Now imagine that there comes a brand that takes care of all these problems. They also offer mix-n-match options and options specific for your measurements. Won’t you want to explore them for wardrobe possibilities?
KAARYAH has a solution for all these problems – they offer wardrobe solutions for all body types.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
