Have you ever felt like you are in a circus, juggling with many things at a time or walking on that tight rope trying to find your balance?
Have you ever felt like a clown whose job is just to entertain others or the trained animals who follows the instructions of their masters assertively? If yes, you are not alone in this circus.
A juggler is an entertainer who continuously tosses into the air and catches a number of objects so as to keep at least one in the air while handling the others. The fact is that even I’m struggling and juggling a lot of balls in the air, so that not even a ball falls on the ground. But the ground reality is that, in order to entertain this world of yours, sometimes it leads to collision of the balls, sometimes the balls get dropped from my hands and at times, it drops on my own head so badly that I end up creating a mess of my own.
If you are doing it well, they will overload you with more balls to juggle with. If you are low in performance, you will be thrown out of the circus. In either way, you are going to lose yourself, your value, your identity.
Don’t keep juggling. You are neither a juggler nor a clown, and this life of yours is not a circus. You are not a Superwoman either and don’t expect to be one. Folks, lower your expectations as she has her own pace of doing things. You are not here to please and entertain all, with a heart break of yours. Give yourself a break. Go out. Take some rest. Pamper and treat yourself. If you will not, then who else will? The ring master!

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
Is Hansika Motwani doing anything really bizarre? It is common practice for celebrities to sell exclusive rights to their wedding, new baby etc. to publications.
We heard about a rather unique proposition on social media recently – the monetisation of a wedding – by transforming it into a reality TV show. Now I will admit my first reaction to this was horrified disbelief.
