I know that the most difficult thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn but I want my son to know that there is always a way to build another bridge.
“Life is about choices. Some we regret, some we are proud of. Some will haunt us forever. The message : we are what we chose to be.” – Graham Brown
I think all of us would have heard this at least once in our life. Our parents or teachers or our friends, someone, sometimes all of them, must have told us to choose wisely because life is full of choices and we must choose wisely.
My dad too told me that I have to choose wisely because my life will be a reflection of the choices I make. He stood by me in all my choices and decisions.
But one thing my dad did not tell me and what I want my son to know is “Life is full of choices, choose wisely. But, If you feel you have made the wrong choice, PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO MAKE ANOTHER CHOICE.”
We sometimes make a choice, think about how it will work, think about all the possible things that can go wrong, turn all the possible scenarios in our mind over and over. If things go well then you know you made the right choice but what if things don’t happen the way you want to.
I want my son to know that all choices may not be the right choices but he should have the courage to change his direction, make another decision, choose another path. THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER CHANCE, ANOTHER CHOICE.
I know that the most difficult thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which bridge to burn but I want my son to know that there is always a way to build another bridge. I want to tell him that life changes the moment you make a new decision. I really feel very sorry when I see kids who get into depression, sometimes try to end their life just because things did not work out.
I wish they knew that they could make a different choice. I wish, the women who face marital abuse were told by their parents that there is a different choice. I wish everyone who gives up, learns to make a new decision, a new choice. Sometimes it is the smallest decision that can change your life forever. So, my friends…life is full of choices, choose wisely but please have the courage to make a different choice if things don’t work out.

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.”
