The phenomenon of ageing and acquiring grey hair expressed in an interesting poetic description.
The rhapsody of black and white
Fused lines between tassels muted and bright
At ease, a salt pepper palette of cutting edge
Goodness of an oversized mane or a quirky wedge
A paradoxical source of resilience and strength
Breaking perceptions about monotony in length
Highlights a symbol of ageless pigments
A contoured look, slaying with smudged vignettes
In fact, the grey mane is your splendorous mess
While the black warriors through daily stress
What does this trophy mean to you, why go this way?
Changes to, ooooohhhh how long does the silver stay?
I know each strang gathers stories, takes a brave fight
Completes my sassiness with a blend of poetic highlights
A way to live with ambiguity, and some non negotiables
One grey strand after another to shatter those fables
I started by just testing a thought, an imagined hypothesis
Succumbing to authenticity is easier than keeping up appearances
What it means to embrace life as delivered, accept a glass half full
A cocktail of salt, pepper and autumns does create a palpable pull

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
Is Hansika Motwani doing anything really bizarre? It is common practice for celebrities to sell exclusive rights to their wedding, new baby etc. to publications.
We heard about a rather unique proposition on social media recently – the monetisation of a wedding – by transforming it into a reality TV show. Now I will admit my first reaction to this was horrified disbelief.
