Amidst all the things happening in the country, News24 seems to be able to think only about Disha Patani's 'Ugly' photo from school. *FACEPALM*

With all the BS that Karni sena, and the politicians of the country are generally up to, I’m honestly amazed at the ability of some news houses to be so blatantly ignorant of it and choose to tweet about something like this. (below)
I mean, is that what your sponsors give you money for, News24? I’m not being judgmental, but it’s pretty clear that you’re headed straight up that way. I understand that bollywood related articles are an object of interest to millions of people, but I don’t think shaming somebody for their looks (that too in class 7) makes for any kind of a read. Standing ovation to actress Disha Patani for destroying their useless tweet with a fitting reply LOL.
And I have a question for the people concerned with this tweet, how much professional make-up did you people use when in class 7? Class 7 is the age when everybody hits or has been hit by puberty. That’s not a very flattering age, and neither is the angle or the quality of the camera that picture on the left has been taken in.
Funny that you guys didn’t think about all of this despite being fully grown adults. Peace!

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
