A poem which says that a woman is more than a pretty face- there is more to her!
I am not my diamond solitaire,
I am not the precious jewels I wear.
I am not the silk gown I wear,
I am not the brands that adorn me.
My title or properties don’t define me!
I am a mere body with a humane soul.
A collection of short stories,
Few happy and sad memories.
Emotions are my true accessories,
They make me what I am.
They Don’t change with fashion nor do they lie!
I am someone who needs, who loves, who sees,
Who has many fears still dares to dream.
I am perfect because of my imperfections,
For they make me unique!
I am an abstract poem for you to understand,
If you look beyond my name, gender, religion or land,
I am like a lantern with fire in the belly,
With a desire to light the world,
Where love fills all the valleys!
I am not defined by my relations,
I can disperse colors like a prism,
If the light of your soul meets mine,
Without any preconceived ‘isms’!
Inflated egos, expensive attires and smiles that are fake,
A place where being yourself is at stake,
Overflowing sweetness, hidden envy,
People gauging self-worth, by looking at a mere accessory-
Stifles my soul and makes me freeze.
It steals away my inner peace!
The echoes of party music have finally ceased.
Amidst the scent of lingering perfumes, what is left is me.
The chandeliers look bright, the huge sparkling mirrors don’t lie,
My reflection is before me, she is happy to see me!
A genuine smile, a content soul,
A simple story with few magical moments,
That completes me and make me whole!
Yes, I am a woman who has risen above adversities,
Whose self-confidence is her best accessory.
I am a fighter, a survivor and a winner,
Can you just promise to not judge a book by its cover?

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
