An uplifting post which tells women to never let go of their invisible crown and be a fighter.
‘Treat me like a queen and I’ll treat you like a king
Treat me like a game and I’ll show you how it’s played’
A beautiful quote to start with and share with all, isn’t it? A crown most often resembles royalty but it also depicts strength, courage, and respect.You are already a complete package with all these qualities imbibed in you. You are a powerful, resourceful, intelligent and a wise woman, worthy of admiration.
You may have past hurts, scars and bruises. But, don’t let these marks reflect on your present. If someone has stolen your crown, don’t pause and ponder. You can’t expect others to fetch it for you and decorate on your top. Go, get up on your feet, pull up your socks and run fiercely without looking back. Run until you steal it back. Just look out for the invisible crown, nail it on your head and let its root grow deep within your heart.
I know, there are days when darkness envelopes you. There are times when you feel dejected, inadequate, unloved and unworthy. Believe me. It will pass on. Don’t let these feelings form a grapevine within you. Just remember this is your empire and you are the Queen. So, hey Queen, Straighten your crown, take charge! Move forward. Expand your empire. Empower your people.
You are already a fighter. Be a survivor. Be the torchbearer. Let’s acknowledge the other Queens out there and fix each other’s crowns. With a crown embedded with a little confidence, you can change the whole world. So, never ever forget to wear your crown. Will you?

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
