Let’s celebrate women’s right to loiter, to explore, to look, to work, to just be outdoors. Join Women’s Web on this photography contest, Beyond The Doors 2018, in the run-up to International Women’s Day this year.
Good girls stay at home.” Err, no. Why should boys have all the fun? No matter what some killjoys may think, women are indeed going out – whether to work, or hanging out with our friends, looking at sunsets, sitting solo in the park, going to a new city….or anything else at all that the world outdoors calls us for.
For the third year now, a reader favourite, Beyond The Doors is our photography contest and it’s all about celebrating the lives of Indian women outside the home.
Send us your most interesting photos of women outside the home. This could be photos taken in any space – whether the beach, a street, a field, a market or anything. You must be the photographer yourself (please don’t send us pictures taken by anyone else).
The subject of these photographs can be anything so long as it features at least one woman, in a recognisably outdoor space. So feel free to send us pics of your friends on a trek, or women at an outdoor market, or anything else at all.
Let’s create a wonderful online exhibit of women living life…freely!
Email us your pic at [email protected] in jpeg/PNG format. Mention ‘Beyond The Doors’ in your subject line. Make sure to mention your full name, and a line about where the image was taken.
Last date for entries: 10 PM IST, 20th February, 2018

Linger vacations are a journey of passion we’ve set out on. This was born of a dream to make vacations fun again. To rekindle the curiosity you once had. To be not prepared but to be surprised.

To discover the joys of taking it as it comes, and doing nothing.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
