Pay no heed to the body shamers who will continue to pass judgement on your body - they have nothing better to do with their lives!

Dear Body Shamers,
I really want to thank you for taking out your precious time to evaluate and judge my body and for letting me know my body type. Without y’all, I would not have gotten to know how I look like. So thank you very much.
Yes, I have been body shamed a lot. I still face that criticism for being ‘too thin‘. You might be aware of all the jokes being made on people who are thin. You look like a skeleton, you are a hanger, you must go to Lilliput to shop, blah blah blah!
The worst was when people would tell my mom: “Isko kuch khilaya pilaya karo. Aap khilate nai kya?” (Feed her something. Don’t you give her anything?) Are you serious? Which mom does that? Which mom doesn’t let her child eat?
I still remember that lady at the security check, who once commented on my body. I still remember that acquainted friend telling me why she does not need a padded bra. I still remember that comment on my fb profile, “Damn girl you are so thin. Gain some. BTW pretty <WINK> <XOXO>.”
But hey you know what, I feel bad for all of you. My body and my mind are very much healthier unlike yours.
I am not out there to pass my judgement on every human body I see. Because I know, that’s the least cool thing to do. To body shame anyone.
However, I understand your sentiments. That’s the only job you got in this world. What a sad life you have. Now I feel really bad for you whilst writing this.
Nevertheless, I want to tell this to all those people who have passed judgement sometime or the other, that I don’t starve myself to look thin. That’s how my body is like. I work out, I eat, and I love food. But if my body wants to stay this way, then it will.
Same goes for the person who is ‘fat’. Have you ever thought, what troubles they might be going through? Maybe they are depressed. Maybe that fat lady whom you mock every day, just had a painful delivery.
It is not easy for us. We have to face this every day. We have to showcase ourselves to be perfect in this imperfect world. How silly is that? Isn’t it?
Listen girl, if you are fat. That’s okay. You rock in that LBD (little black dress) of yours. No perfect body can carry the way you do it.
Lady if you are thin, don’t be ashamed. Wear crop tops, tank tops. Don’t hide your arms because they are thin. Flaunt them. Trust me, inside their (body shamers) hearts, they are all jealous of you.
From now on, forget what the body shamers say.
You are confident, lovable, and an amazing soul.
What is inside the body is all that should matter.
Live your life.

Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
People have relationships without marriages. People cheat. People break up all the time. Just because two people followed some rituals does not make them more adept at tolerating each other for life.
Why is that our society defines a woman’s success by her marital status? Is it an achievement to get married or remain married? Is it anybody’s business? Are people’s lives so hollow that they need someone’s broken marriage to feel good about themselves?
A couple of months ago, I came across an article titled, “Shweta Tiwari married for the third time.” When I read through it, the article went on to clarify that the picture making news was one her one of her shows, in which she is all set to marry her co-star. She is not getting married in real life.
Fair enough. But why did the publication use such a clickbait title that was so misleading? I guess the thought of a woman marrying thrice made an exciting news for them and their potential readers who might click through.
