All the episodes have touched topical subjects and dealt with them with utmost sensitively. Hence making it tough to decide which is the best episode out of all.
Why did I love Karan Mehra so much? He believed in eternal love, he stood for what he believed was right and does not wear his different sexual orientation on his sleeve.
And Sobhita because though she is the wife of a rich man, she wants to work to prove herself. And that her conscience pricks her many times when she is fighting for someone. They both have been scarred in their childhood but their experiences have made them…not broken them.
Kalki Koechlin is always a wonder actress who excels in her role. She looks and behaves with fragility, as a woman who is lying to herself. She is putting up a brave front in front of others but walking on a tight rope emotionally by pretending to be someone else. Extramarital affairs are just to seek validation. And that is what Kalki does to reinforce confidence in herself after suffering physical abuse in her broken marriage and a toxic father’s verbal diatribe.
Kabir the sutradhar with his deadpan expressions and inquisitive nature excels in the part where he questions the bride and the groom.
Dowry, molestation, ageing aunties playing rummy, the wide kaleidoscope of emotions are all the hallmark of Made In Heaven.
Jassi the cute middle-class girls who has aspirations but her comfort zone always is her lower-middle-class boyfriend. Even Jim with his strange accent does not come as a caricature but a man torn between desire and duty.
All the topics dwelled upon from child molestation to dowry problems to a lovely marriage between a middle-aged couple or how a young rich girl is willing to settle for anyone even if he has different sexual preferences or gold diggers wearing the garb of intellectuals and of course the quintessential Delhi landlord are dealt sensitively with humour. Aspects of love, hate, spite darkened souls, enlightened souls are all here.

I recommend reading Manjiri Indurkar's Origami Aai alongside her memoir to have a fulfilling and enriching experience of telling one's story with grace.
It’s All In Your Head, M famed author Manjiri Indurkar’s debut poetry collection, Origami Aai, is independent and yet an extension of her memoir in which she speaks with utmost grace about all forms of abuses that she has survived. In this book of intriguing and evocative poems, the poet weaves words to form images of the everyday life of her middle-class family, love found and lost, trauma, and healing.
The collection is divided into four segments, beginning with the family, slowly moving towards the world, and finally colliding them together.
We aren’t in mourning, but we are creatures of habit.
So we talk of each one who died of drowning,
and I listen to her stories with the patience
of a chronicler.

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.
