No matter what life doles out, and how you are today, a smile is what you need to wear, along with anything else you may.
After you’re done with your make-up,
Wear your smile today.
A smile that doesn’t fail to reach your eyes,
And make them shine brighter
Than your exquisite diamond studs.
After you’re done with draping your silk saree,
Wear your smile today.
A smile that makes you look resplendent,
A smile that is more flamboyant
Than your Kanjeevaram saree.
Smile and thank Almighty
For all the blessings
That He has strewn along your path,
And be blissful for receiving
This marvellous gift called ‘Life’.
And when life doesn’t give you any reason to smile-
A laughter that makes your stomach ache
And your eyes teary.
Life may not be a bed of roses,
For every rose comes with its own share of thorns,
But whatever you come across- roses or thorns,
Do not forget to wear your smile today.

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 is a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase is theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bag main bomb 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?
Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
