“Khudi ko kar buland itna ki, ki khuda bande se ye pooche, bata teri raza kya hai.” – Allama Iqbal
This is a fact – people who are unique in their efforts, unique in their personality and who have proved that it’s not the physical appearance but their efforts, their determination and the spirit of never giving up which leads you to stand somewhere in a society – people with this spirit have always created history.
To me, a person who has paved the way, who has been an inspiration for women and proved that it’s nothing but your efforts and your spirit that will help you to achieve your goal, that help you achieve something in your life…is none other than our Information & Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani…whose entire life is an inspiration for me.
Smriti Irani wanted to become an Air hostess, but due to the physical appearance criteria she got rejected. She didn’t give up and started her career from McDonald’s on a small salary. No work is small or big – it’s only our perception and our views that makes it valuable or worthless.
After that she tried hard, took a lot of effort and finally started her career in acting with the television serials made by Balaji Telefilms production house. Her most popular serial which has created a historic record in was Kyunki Saas Bhi kabhi bahu thi in which she got a lead role. This serial made her so famous that people use to call her Tulsi and became so attached to her that they never used to miss a single episode of this serial. She acted in many other serials but didn’t stop there. Her continuous efforts and hard work led her to politics, post which she joined the BJP and started her career in politics.
She started with becoming a member of the Rajya Sabha and after that she became Human Resources & Development Minister, Textile minister and now she is Information & Broadcasting Minister..
Smriti Irani is an example for all the women with the spirit of doing something in life on your own, with a Success Mantra. Every person has to go through failure to achieve their ultimate aims in life, she is a true example of that.

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.
