So you love someone. But that doesn't mean you need to make any grand gestures. Here are some little things you can do that speak of your love.
So you love someone. But that doesn’t mean you need to make any grand gestures. Here are some little things you can do that speak of your love.
Love is easy. What’s actually tough is loving.
Believe me you, she is not that hard to love. All that matters is how much effort you put in to make her feel loved and appreciated. Effort you put that doesn’t need any grand strategies.
I believe just like other important things in your life you need to take some time out for the woman in your life. Doing little things out of love, being aware of her needs and feelings, does the trick.
You don’t need to take her out on lavish grand date nights but try having those evening walks or after-dinner walks regularly with her, where you ask her about her day and tell about yours. Hand in hand and heart to heart is the recipe for magic.
You don’t need to buy those expensive gifts and jewellery all the time, but bring her a rose on one of those regular days. Make her feel special on just ordinary days too.
You both might be too busy and occupied to keep calling each other like those good old college days. That’s ok. Just call her once for 2 minutes and tell her, “I can’t wait to see you again, I really miss you.”
You need not be the Best Husband or Best Boyfriend under the sun. I know that’s one herculean task! Just try to be her best friend and everything will follow.
The moon looks best in the sky as it is. You don’t have to bring it down for her. If you missed planning for a special night, try this. Spend a night under the starry violet sky and cuddle in each other’s arms; I think that’s all she wants.
It’s ok If PDA’s are not your thing and you can’t write those romantic statuses on social media, but you can still write letters to her. Love letter charm is still a thing.
Not every time do we have time or money for those exotic vacations; it happens. Plan a romantic long drive with her just like in the journey of life you both feel fortunate to sit beside each other. As they say, live a life you don’t need a vacation from.
No doubt, you are her shield against the craziest storms and you have to be at your best to fulfil all responsibilities and duties. I encourage you to support her like this forever but do you still find her sad at times? Drop your guard, be easy on yourself and enjoy those little moments with her. Get out of your living room, pull her out too and dance in the rain.
I know it sounds weird, but ya! Sometimes we are left with no energy for weekend getaways, and all we want to do is stay back home and relax. And also there are some pending household tasks that can only be done on weekends and hence there’s no time for getaways. You can still make your weekends special. Do stuff together, dancing and singing together, do relaxed movie marathons. Stay together and enjoy in each other’s company.
Try cooking for her. I agree not all men might be good with this (insert eyeroll) but the least you can do is turn off your screens, get up from that couch, and help her with cooking or someday give her a day off from cooking. Order the food. Dim the light, light up the candles and put the music on. You don’t need those fancy restaurants for romantic dinners. Trust me …
Author’s note: You could be a woman, wanting to romance your partner. The same great ideas will work!

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
