No – I am strongly against this as women are not some marginalised section of the society anymore
In fact they possess the power that can enamour!
Women are not just some show-pieces of make-up and Glamour
They are the goddesses of nature
Gone are the days when divinity of Draupadi was marred by demonic hands
No more Agni Pariksha for Sita’s Purity to be scanned
We fight for right with all our might
Our Identity of a ‘Woman’ from now would not end with emotions of Helplessness and Pity
But a Lady Shining in Armour with sword to fight mightily
And still with all the hardships the woman always looks Pretty!
I need no marriage to lose my virginity
I will give my self to someone who has respect for me and dignity
For even in wedlocks the relations have not been pure
Where rape was forced sex but marital rape was not
And even the laws could not provide women with it’s CURE!
I am an independent women now although even I had an ex
Who wouldn’t have been there with me if he couldn’t have got sex
And when I realized this you want to know what I did next?
I confronted him about all this in front of some women
Who supported my decision to break up with him
And now not just me but even those women were single since we all had been played when we came to know he was not just mine or her current boyfriend but three more girls called him by the term boyfriend.
And hence he lost all his partners at one go and now we women shared a Common-Ex
And we have no regrets to let him go!

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there was a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase was theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bomb mai bag nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Anupama, an idealist at heart, believes that passing on the mic to amplify suppressed voices is the best way to show solidarity with the marginalised.
Anupama writes with a clear vision of what she wants to say, and makes sure she explores all possible facets of the topic, be it parenting or work or on books.
An intelligent, extroverted writer with a ton of empathy, she is also one who thinks aloud in her writing. Anupama says that she is largely a self driven person, and her passion to write keeps her motivated.
Among her many achievements Anupama is also a multiple award winning blogger, author, serial entrepreneur, a digital content creator, creative writing mentor, choreographer and mother to a rambunctious 7-year-old who is her life’s inspiration and keeps her on her toes.
