Even though she lost the race to the President's position, Hillary Clinton is an inspiration to the girl child, enabling them to reach for their dreams!

Some people with 20/20 vision are thinking out loud if it had been Bernie, things would have been different. Well, that would feed in to the misogynistic loop, wouldn’t it? That would be like having liberal ideas but ideas that exclude women and what would be great about that?
I for one am very grateful for Hillary. Many might think that she did not break the glass ceiling. On the contrary it is my opinion that she showed her middle finger to the glass ceiling and said out loud, “The world does not decide what I can be or not be. I decide what I want to do and will fight tooth and nail to make my dreams come true.”
Her entire adult life she had been given the second place, not for the lack of ability, but because of her gender. Still she neither let that define her nor stop her. It is amazing to see how she put herself first and believed in herself. This is a positive message that we must cherish and pass on to our children.
It is not an easy path she chose. She would have had a tough path ahead irrespective of her success or failure to win the Presidential elections. She accepted it and forged on.
The next time a girl child says that she wants grow up and be the President of America, she will not be given an indulgent smile, thanks to Hillary.
The next time a woman wins the nomination for President, she will not shock people and send them out on a witch hunt to come up with absolute nonsense that aims to disgrace her, thanks to Hillary.
The next time we have a woman running for the highest office in the United States, she will understand what to expect, thanks to Hillary.
The next time we hear that a woman is aiming for THE best, we will not go, “But why?!”, thanks to Hillary.
Next time a little girl gets bullied and called names, she knows how to respond with tact AND stay focused, thanks to Hillary.
From the time of the Grimke sisters to now, it has never been easy for us women, but we have never given up. If you ask any feminist, which includes men women and children by the way, they will tell you how difficult it is to be in the front line. Yet she was there and did her part exceedingly well, thank you Hillary.
I AM STILL WITH HER AND I THINK SHE HAS AN AWESOME SPIRIT.

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
