Sex, oh no don’t say that this loud, what are you doing don’t read it, stop!!!
Why are you thinking about it? Are you a slut? What is sex that is such a taboo? Well… figure it out yourself… What are the ways of figuring it out? Well.. one main was PORN.
Oh, wait that’s illegal too. So what are your sexual preferences? Don’t share it because you are going to be judged.
Oh look… she coloured her hair ..what a slut!
Oh look she has a tattoo …must be completely out of hand ..Oh my God… look at her waist it is visible. So sex is a pretty big word.
No.. No.. No.. she is not a virgin!! Who will marry her because she is not pure anymore? …because it is the duty of a woman to have the families respect protected between her legs.
Don’t educate her this much …eventually she is going to be married what is the purpose of it then? You are a lesbian!!! How do you know it is just a phase that is unnatural?? It will pass.
You smoke hawwww how can you?
People are going to judge you no matter what, people will judge on your sexual preferences. They are going to judge you how your hair is and how many tattoos you have on your body. They will judge you if your skin is visible because hawww.
They are going to call you names but the reality is they are those who never in their life stood up. These are people who are mentally crippled. One doesn’t need their validation to stand up for oneself. Be your own girl!

Vasudha, age 28 – is an excellent dancer, writer, podcaster and a mandala artist. She is talented young woman, a go getter and wouldn’t bat an eyelid if she had to try anything new. She would go head on with it. Everyone knew Vasudha as this cheerful and pretty young lady.
Except when marriage changed everything she knew. Since she was always outdoors, whether for office or for travelling for her dance shows, Vasudha didn’t know how to cook well.
Going by her in-laws definition of cooking – she had to know how to cook any dishes they mentioned. Till then Vasudha didn’t know that learning to cook was similar to getting an educational qualification. As soon as she entered the household after her engagement, nobody was interested what she excelled at, everybody wanted to know – what dishes she knew how to cook.
