Hardik Pandya has unwittingly imparted some valuable lessons to today's youngsters who idolise him, when he crammed his foot in his mouth.

At the outset I want to make it very clear that this write-up is not to condemn or support the show, the host, or Mr Pandya.
I do have an opinion about everything that was said on the show like most people, but I want to highlight the lessons I have learnt from the episode, and what I want my son to learn too. So here is a list.
~~ Why fit in when you were born to stand out? Hardik was clearly trying to fit in. He got carried away with the ‘format of the show’ (his own words).
~~ Education is not just books and degrees, the best education is to know how to behave and conduct yourself.
~~ Why you should never allow success go into your head.
~~ Why you should not become complacent. If you feel you have achieved everything than you get carried away.
~~ It’s very important to be humble about all your achievements.
~~ Discipline never goes out of fashion.
~~ Always remember your upbringing, your family, your teachers, and the lessons you learnt from them.
~~ Be a role model for people younger than you.
~~ Don’t live in a bubble like our young cricketer, the bubble will break.
I wish the younger generation who looks up to these cricketers learns from their mistakes. My heart really goes out to the family. They must be feeling so disgraceful.
And what about Mr. Johar? Why does he always get away? I wish he learns his lessons too and I wish it happens very soon.
Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth. I really feel sad for all the young kids who go on his show and speak utter nonsense just to conform. I hope all the young kids who watch the show understand that what is spoken is not what always.

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.
