If I am asked that being a mother was a compulsion or choice; I would proudly admit that it has been my choice.
Those tiny hands that I tried to hold in my palm many years back…hold my hand today. The patting on his back with a lullaby has been replaced with him patting my back as he tried to clam my anxious heartbeat. My baby who always wore what I chose for him, today tells me what I should wear.
If I am asked that being a mother was a compulsion or choice; I would proudly admit that it has been my choice. A choice that I knowingly made… I always follow my heart and take decisions that help me grow as a person. Yes.. i am a mom and a dream chaser.
More than five years of motherhood has changed a lot in my life but one thing that grew stronger is the resolve to chase my dreams. As a working mom, I get only a few hours in the day to be with my son but I try to make the most of that short period. The pride in successfully solving a puzzle with him is equal to winning the 1st runner up of “Ms. Professional”. The fun of sharing stories with him is equal to going for a superb holiday.
Together we both have toured around 13 European countries. With each tour, we both grew in many aspects. I grew to be a better mom, my son grew to be more adaptive and we both got closer to each other. I became his best friend and he became my best travel buddy. As a single mom, I am trying to fit into two pair of shoes; he as a single child became my companion. Dreams that I chase are not just mine but are the ones that a couple had for their kid.
I am a proud mother who is trying to be a role model for the tiny boy who is soon going to be 6. I am a mom and much more #MomAndMore

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.”
