#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
It might sound odd but it is true. I was stuck in a a traffic jam obviously when I came up with this but hear me out – it might just make sense to you also.
What do you do when stuck in a jam? It’s a situation you have not created but are still a part of. Observe if you get angry, crib and then make peace with it. If this jam is on your office route, then you maybe won’t be getting angry everyday but that irritation still does always seep in.
Do you then over time start filling in this ‘jammed’ time with other activities like calling people either for meetings or socially? Do you listen to music or read (if being driven of course)? Do you start looking outside the window and start checking out people or even worse, the hoardings around if any? There’s always something your mind would find for you to do, which would simmer down the irritation and anger within. It is your mind which makes you feel these emotions, and then it’s the mind which brings you these solutions. What if you start making these solutions a part of your drive everytime – the room for anger and irritation just about minimizes to nothing, and these jams become just another time to explore beyond the ordinary.
Is that not something that we can do in dealing with our family members in times when things are sour? When all can’t see eye to eye and yet have to live together because that’s what families do. There would be an initial tension but how long that goes on is really dependent on you. When you have the power to make a one hour traffic jam seem like a smooth ride, there is definitely more to you than just letting things be with your family. Finding a solution might take time, and executing it might take even longer, but the process can begin now. It can begin when you want it to, unless you are gaining some sadistic pleasure in keeping things hanging. Most importantly – don’t push anything under the carpet. Work it out, talk it out. Figure out what is important to you.
It is going to be the same route to work everyday. The later you leave home, the heavier the jam for you to navigate through. Try beginning ten minutes earlier from home. Maybe there will be an opening which will save you precious moments from this jam!

I realized that my journey wasn't just about my growth and self-discovery; it was also an opportunity for those around me to learn and evolve.
CW: Mention of Suicidal Ideation and Depression
In the depths of my soul, I am Jessica Care Moore. This is the story of my journey, a tale of resilience and self-discovery that has shaped the person I am today.
From the tender age of 13, I found solace and joy in wearing female clothes. In the secret corners of my world, I would slip into my mother’s garments and gaze at my reflection, my lips adorned with her lipstick. I loved myself as a girl, and that love was pure and unwavering.
In a recent interview, Shahid Kapoor said he finally figured marriage all out. According to him, a woman marries a man to ‘fix’ a messy life!
Shahid Kapoor shared his thoughts on marriage in an interview with Film Companion. He said he finally figured it (marriage) all out. Marriage is how a woman enters a man’s life to ‘fix’ him.
“This entire marriage thing is about one thing: it is that the guy was a mess and the woman came in to fix him. So the rest of his life is going to be a journey of him getting fixed and becoming a decent person. That’s pretty much what life is about.”
But this is not the only problematic thing Kapoor said. When asked about which role of his, Mira Rajput, liked the best – actor or dad, he gave a not-so-funny answer. He said he’s not sure, but he’d hoped she liked some part of him.
