Almost everything we are associated with, be it situations or relationships, there is always insecurity or fear that if things will change, how badly your life will be impacted.
Amidst all trials and tribulations of a Modern life, there is this internal battle which we combat for survival. Something which infests our mind day in and day out, something which doesn’t allow us to take the first step, something which makes you feel bad about yourself if you fail…the most deadly enemy… Fear!
Fear is an emotional cancer that slowly takes away all the positive strength from your relationships, career and other aspects of lifestyle. It comes with a garb of protecting you but in reality, it silently makes you feeble.
Why do you have insecurities in relationships? What fear do you have? Will your partner be there forever to support you physically, mentally or emotionally? Will things change if you take responsibility for your career? Who will balance home? Will your partner understand you and be supportive enough?
What will the appraisal bring for me this year? Will I get the role which I asked for? Will I get a good performance rating? Will I be able to maintain the same good rating? What if the boss looks out for a replacement?
When will my children grow? Will they be able to manage once I resume back to work? Is daycare a safe option for my child? Will my in-laws support my career?
What if I fail in my new venture? What will my peers think about me? What if this decision of leaving a stable job proves a nightmare? What if I lose what I have?
What will people think of me if I pursue my passion now? Isn’t it too late to pick my guitar again? Is it the right decision to leave that monotonous desk?
All these sequences of events have a common tie. Fear!
Why are we tormented at the hands of this unpleasant emotion? Why have we become slaves of this superficial master?
The answer lies deep within. We have locked it somewhere and have hidden real identity and aspirations. Almost everything we are associated with, be it situations or relationships, there is always insecurity or fear that if things will change, how badly your life will be impacted. In some cases, this feeling is so strong that it has a severe impact on their health. Health enemies like stress, negativity, fear, hostility take away all the positives from life and leave us alone and powerless.
Don’t let this enemy win. Get up, take the first step. If you have done sufficient at your workplace and relationships, it will be reciprocated in some way sooner or later. If not, don’t fear. Just walk away from everything which makes you feel insecure. Introspect, do what you want and you will gradually see a path for yourself.

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
