A poem that talks about the plight of private school teachers. They give in their best in molding the future generation. Yet, they get very less in return for their efforts.
I’m a private school teacher, I can teach well
but the habitat I can afford is not to dwell
I’ve to perfect in every sense
but if dare to complain that would be a nonsense
I have to be not good but perfect
And in return nothing to expect
I don’t deserve the credits they take
Because all I do seems fake
I don’t own a building, I don’t possess that furniture
But what is the worth of all that without a teacher?
I give all that I possess
Still, in return deserve too less
When will this road of tussle have a bend?
When will this exploitation come to an end?
Will u ever realize all you have
is just because I’m not a naive
I pity myself for all I have
But it fills your coffers with all I have
Just think of my life just think of my dreams
just lend an ear to listen to my silent screams
I’m born to enlighten and to brighten
tomorrows of generations and to heighten
their aims to take them further
But do I deserve too less just because I’m a private school teacher?

People have relationships without marriages. People cheat. People break up all the time. Just because two people followed some rituals does not make them more adept at tolerating each other for life.
Why is that our society defines a woman’s success by her marital status? Is it an achievement to get married or remain married? Is it anybody’s business? Are people’s lives so hollow that they need someone’s broken marriage to feel good about themselves?
A couple of months ago, I came across an article titled, “Shweta Tiwari married for the third time.” When I read through it, the article went on to clarify that the picture making news was one her one of her shows, in which she is all set to marry her co-star. She is not getting married in real life.
Fair enough. But why did the publication use such a clickbait title that was so misleading? I guess the thought of a woman marrying thrice made an exciting news for them and their potential readers who might click through.
Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
