A poem which talks about the enigmatic powers of women. Read on.
We are not made for customary lives, my sisters,
We are made of the shimmers and sparkles of the heavens and the lost worlds!
We have a thirst for spectacular moments each day, those enough to fill our insides with wonder.
We chase our dreams daily as the life is not easy.
The right questions are to be asked and the answers to be soaked in by your soul.
This is how we breathe, my love.
The mundanity of life is shattering.
It smashes against our sparkly soul as a glass breaks on the pavement.
As the glass breaks into smithereens, our spirit is pounded daily.
Now you see my sisters, we are made of the stardust and fashioned after the fays,
we run by the moon and draw our powers from the Universe.
Sadly so, we are encircled by those who love to snap our spirits.
They are drawing life from us! But, we are boundless…
Don’t we love snipping the barbed wires with which they tried to bind us?
With this, I ask for peace for us, a sky full of sparkles, a bed full of roses and arms full of love-
This is what I want, this is my wish.

We often hear of relationships doomed by distances, of love wearing off when physical proximity ceases, and of growing apart. Most of my life I grew up witnessing the opposite of this. Thus, my belief in growing together whether distant or near stands tall.
When I think back today, I owe a lot of my value system to being a part of army life. This is the love of steel-hearted women who breathe life and passion into the soldiers of the armed forces.
A book by Swapnil Pandey, The Force Behind the Forces, is apt here. The love of these gritty women powers the men to confidently step out and face the most hostile situations. I feel privileged to share a personally witnessed account of this undying love and faith.
When someone accuses you of "too much feminism", what they are really saying is, "I am uncomfortable with you challenging the status quo and disrupting my privilege".
Time and again, there is one phrase that keeps coming up in the social media discourse on feminism. Any guesses?
Ah, no prizes for guessing the infamous “itni bhi feminist” or “too much feminism” phrase, a classic eye-roller for me, and I am sure for many more of my tribe, in the realm of gender equality discussions.
Pray tell me, how can an ideology, a movement be too ‘much’? It’s not salt or the seasoning of your soup where you can go, “Oops, too much salt, only one spoon was required”. Either you stand for what feminism stands for, or you don’t.
