Women are bestowed with unique qualities and each one of them is special. Let us embrace our imperfections and be what we want to be.
I don’t want to fight for my gender equality. I don’t want to be compared with other women, let alone men. Comparison leads to competition. I’m not interested in competing. I don’t want to run any race. In fact, I strive to bring a better me each day.
Eventually, I focus to bring out the best of myself. I am my own exemplar. I admire myself for what I have become and where I have reached. I strive hard to rise up and reach my dreams. I am a proud imperfectly perfect woman.
In my opinion, women are different from men. There is no need to be equated because women are way more powerful than men. I read a message somewhere that said, “Don’t praise a woman for her sacrifices as a mother or for being a good daughter or a sister or for that matter a wife and even an entrepreneur. Instead, reduce her burden.” I completely agree.
I feel, women have been bestowed with all good qualities that makes them good mothers, daughters, sisters, wives , entrepreneurs. Women do not need any praises. We would appreciate people who own their responsibilities as an independent human being should and respect people for what they are irrespective of baggages.
Women can be independent, carefree , liberal, happy, resilient. They can take care of family, loved ones and still find time for themselves. Women do not have to learn to be graceful, thoughtful and perseverant. As I said, they already have it in them.
Some are blessed with good genes, fashion sense and affordability to indulge in fashion trends. Some are born with imperfections and have to strive hard to reach their dreams. Beauty lies in our comfort. The more gracefully we carry ourselves, the more beautiful we look. Most importantly, as the saying goes “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
