A contrary view by the author on the controversial statement by Manohar Parrikar that has most feminists in arms against the stereotyping.

But it’s more than the sip
For I really have no taste for it
But it makes me feel hip
I love the swirl of liquid
The way the bubbles in my mouth pop

Does that make him parochial
I don’t feel it does
he never frowned upon my other whims
So why should I fuss
He indulged in all that mattered to me
My ambitions and my dreams
He does get concerned if I take after him
For all his vices, I mean
If I was a son
Perhaps he would worry a lot less
But it’s certainly not prejudice
Like we worried at the start

Or may be alcohol
But it’s certainly not prejudice
Like we took the call…

When schools in Bangalore conducted surprise checks of the bags of students to see if they were bringing cell phones to school, they were in for a nasty surprise.
As this report in the Deccan Herald says, “In addition to cell phones, they found condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, lighters and whiteners in the bags of students of grades 8, 9 and 10.
