"When a humorless nation forgets to take a chill pill and gets ruffled at the drop of a hat! - let’s pick our battles, shall we?"
“When a humorless nation forgets to take a chill pill and gets ruffled at the drop of a hat! – let’s pick our battles, shall we?”
Please don’t wink.
Don’t talk with your eyes.
Priye, don’t enjoy your teenage years.
You dare indulge, someone somewhere who has been angered because someone else is living it up, will hound you, troll you, even put a case against you!
Don’t you know we are a non-witty nation, with the thinnest skin possible?
Anything and everything offends us.
So girl – tread lightly will you and stop smiling, please?
Grave anger is in.
So Saree really because the world goes the whole nine yards!
Put a mike in front, give the eyeballs and a mouth will churn out pithy words. Some words will appeal and some will repel and the Great-Indian-Online-Violence will be unleashed even before you can blink. Untold vitriol will be spilled till the next issue comes along quite innocently.
Do we even pause for a second to consider the words in the entire context, before we go charging? Why don’t we mull for a second whether this issue is worth the effort, does it serve any greater purpose? Why are we relentlessly angry?
When a humorless nation forgets to take a chill pill and gets ruffled at the drop of a hat! – let’s pick our battles, shall we?
And enjoy the sweet nothings and make small memories? How easy is it to agree to simply disagree and carry on living?
Jio aur Jeene Do.
On this Valentine’s day, do spread love, if possible, else at least desist from spreading hate.
Kyon ki battles aur bhi hain jeetne ko.

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.
The Railway Men. Mili. Cuttputli. The Diplomat. Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. And more…
Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo. She worked on an ad film starring Saif Ali Khan and eventually landed a full time job with designer Vikram Phadnis. Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
