To all those guys saying that women must have long hair, please mind your own business and let women decide on their own unique and individual looks.
I have short hair now. It looks like a boy’s hair cut as people say. Yes if you go to the hair salon, they will say it is a boy’s hair cut. I did not know that hair cuts were gender specific. I can never understand what is the harm in women having short hair.
My hair is slightly shorter and thinner at the sides. My colleague commented on whether I had been to the Tirupathi temple. I said no. He said my hair looks shorter at the sides and he thought I had cut my hair there. I was shocked. I did not know what to say.
Who makes these rules that women have to have long hair? I have thin hair and short hair cut makes my hair look fuller. But that does not make me a man. What about the people who have severe hair loss or are suffering from cancer? If they have short hair, like Sonali Bendre now, people make a big deal out of it.
My friend has this short hair (which people called boy’s cut). She was supposed to get married. Obviously everyone around her wanted her to grow her hair or wear a long hair wig. My friend refused. She could not understand the harm in getting married with short hair. She looked like the most elegant bride on her wedding day and I was so happy for her.

When someone accuses you of "too much feminism", what they are really saying is, "I am uncomfortable with you challenging the status quo and disrupting my privilege".
Time and again, there is one phrase that keeps coming up in the social media discourse on feminism. Any guesses?
Ah, no prizes for guessing the infamous “itni bhi feminist” or “too much feminism” phrase, a classic eye-roller for me, and I am sure for many more of my tribe, in the realm of gender equality discussions.
Pray tell me, how can an ideology, a movement be too ‘much’? It’s not salt or the seasoning of your soup where you can go, “Oops, too much salt, only one spoon was required”. Either you stand for what feminism stands for, or you don’t.
We often hear of relationships doomed by distances, of love wearing off when physical proximity ceases, and of growing apart. Most of my life I grew up witnessing the opposite of this. Thus, my belief in growing together whether distant or near stands tall.
When I think back today, I owe a lot of my value system to being a part of army life. This is the love of steel-hearted women who breathe life and passion into the soldiers of the armed forces.
A book by Swapnil Pandey, The Force Behind the Forces, is apt here. The love of these gritty women powers the men to confidently step out and face the most hostile situations. I feel privileged to share a personally witnessed account of this undying love and faith.
