Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
The loneliness of human beings is a strange being, and people can handle it so many different ways. A poignant story of a strange friendship.
She walked out of the huge blue gates with gifts and flowers. 38 years of teaching has just passed by. It was her farewell. She came back home, alone.
He walked out of the huge blue gates with a gift and a bouquet. 3 years of college life just passed by. It was his farewell. He went to the military academy, alone.
She was his favourite teacher. He sends her a friend request on Facebook. Though he had never spoken to her before, now each day they speak on Facebook messenger.
Now as the Sun would set by the teacher’s window, there would be a ping. Her student would ask her how her day was. She would tell him how she tried to install her new microwave. And he would tell her all about how he climbed rocks during the day.
Being alone brings strange friendships.
Now they are friends across states. Less lonely.
Both trying to baby walk into a new life!

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.
