I see your dreams fulfilled and I can feel the pain of the broken pieces of my dreams. I know you are no more mine, neither am I yours.
To the one I loved
I know it is the happiest time of your life and I am really happy for you. It gives such a relief to the soul when I see that you are happily settled in your life and you have everything that you ever wished for. But I don’t know why along with this relief, there is also an ache…one that nags me. A broken lover that cries silently deep inside my heart, who sees that I am not the part of your happy life, and weeps quietly. I see your dreams fulfilled and I can feel the pain of the broken pieces of my dreams. I know you are no more mine, neither am I yours. I wish you a happy and blessed life and I wish myself enough courage to see you happy without me….forever.
I wish you similar fulfilment of your dreams and I wish myself enough strength to cover the bruises over my heart and the ache of my broken dreams, with a smile that can reflect your happiness and could become a part of the celebration of your good days.
From……the one who loved you…..

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
At one point, she confesses to her mother that the beatings are no longer physical, they have started affecting her mentally as well, and she wants to break free of this cycle of abuse.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence and may be triggering for survivors.
I recently watched Darlings on Netflix. It’s a quirky, dark satire featuring the dynamite duo of Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah. The movie depicts domestic violence and the psychology of abuse.
Even though the subject matter is dark, there are light moments and humour, which make it immensely watchable. It stands out for its powerhouse performances and unique storyline.
