A message to the entire mankind to work hard and never have self doubt. Tushita Mukhopadhyay with her poetry tries to change people and their attitude towards life.
For massive success, how hard you toil,
Day in and day out, you abuse this soil;
Your inner peace has been suppressed by this external turmoil;
These indomitable ambitions have caused your progress to foil!
You let filth rent a space in your head,
By unauthorized sadism which is fed;
To brutality which has slowly but steadily lead;
Humanity is now dead.
You adopt uncaring ways,
To your own trap you fall a prey;
You are blind to your own life falling apart;
Amidst your daily struggles to function with a guilt-ridden heart!
You use your sense of wit to pinch,
And make desperate attempts to lynch;
This does not feed your mind,
Only venom does it leave behind.
The poison in your soul you now begin to taste!
You thus become unrecyclable and discarded as waste!
Instead of self-rejection, why not look at it as an opportunity?
And rebuild this collapsed life with integrity?
You have conquered the brightest star;
And yet; this conscious darkness you fail to conquer!
How miserably your own fortune you have marred!
You are now tasteless: overcooked and charred!!
Have you given a hand and lent your ear to the ailing mankind?
Instead of brushing past and leaving it behind,
Its time you unite your body and mind,
Rise like a phoenix and start to grind!
You chase an undefined destination,
By meddling with the Almighty’s creation,
This very creation: that you were born to savour!
Your path is decorated; not with roses; but the bitterness of the fruits of your labour.
Can’t you recollect that life is volatile?
Without resorting to destruction, have you barely walked a mile!
Your so-called accomplishments are as light as a feather;
This will soon transform into an unappealing, dead mass to rot and wither!
Everlasting and deep impressions you must leave,
On the minds of those who are bereaved;
Allow healthy relationships to blossom without making futile attempts to cleave!
So that a sigh of relief you yourself can heave,
So as to steer your way through the dark clouds,
You ought to enlighten; not fall victim to self-doubt!

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.”
