This strange love story reminds me of Princess Diana when she gave an interview about Prince Charles - "There were three of us in this marriage!”
This love was flawed and broken the way only we humans know how to break things with our ego, pride, insecurity and complexities!
Where do I even begin to tell the story of how deep a love can be, how it transcends time, place and people. Perhaps this is a story about how women are their own worst enemies. Either way it is a story that tells us how frail, fragile and fraught we are as humans and how much we hurt each other.
This love story began when I was two years old. Growing up in India in a culture that wove love stories like Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha and the epic symbol of love, the Taj Mahal, into the very fabric of our existence, love was always an integral part of our lives.
One such love story was of a boy and a girl who were neighbours. The boy, an athlete, artist and a poet, found his muse in this shy, thoughtful and in her own way poetic girl, who seemed to worship the very ground he walked on. Her face could be found in all the paintings he created, and her name in every poem he wrote. The girl called him Sagar, which means ocean, symbolizing his all-encompassing love for her.
Earlier my husband would say, 'Arey! What is there in making dal-roti? It's so simple.' After he had to cook everyday when I was ill, he has stopped saying that to me!
“Arey! What is there to do in making dal roti? Put a handful of lentils in the cooker and let it whistle and make two rotis. After all, how long will it take?” A handful of dal (lentils) and two rotis! This is the story of every woman and no one seems to understand.
Some time ago, after a shopping spree, my husband and I entered the house, exhausted. I had just about kept all the bags aside, when my husband said, “I am very hungry, can you make something.”
I looked at my husband in amazement and thought, ‘He had just had food, how did he get hungry again so soon?’
My husband, as if he had read my face, said, “Arey! You know that my stomach is not filled with outside food. Just make dal roti. What is there to do in making dal roti? Put a handful of lentils in the cooker and let it whistle and make two rotis. After all, how long will it take?”
‘Is this the way dal (lentils) and roti are made?’ The thought came to my mind. ‘After all, I also went along and now I am tired too.’ I was also getting angry at myself that after all, I had spoiled the habit of everyone in the house.
The recent scrapping of the 'swimsuit round' from Miss America pageant makes us wonder if these beauty contests really elevate women or merely establish false standards of beauty. Where does India stand?
The recent scrapping of the ‘swimsuit round’ from Miss America pageant makes us wonder if these beauty contests really elevate women or merely establish false standards of beauty. Where does India stand?
‘Miss America’ which is one of the oldest beauty pageants has now scraped off the bikini round in order to stop judging women based on their appearance. The organizers wish to turn it into a competition instead of a pageant.
Miss America has been one of the most influential beauty pageants in the world. Other international Beauty pageants such as Miss Universe, Miss World came up with similar judging criteria after Miss America that considered thin, fair and tall women as the ideal benchmark of beauty. These pageants have set a standard for beauty, completely disregarding those cultures where fat women are considered beautiful. These ideas have permeated to different nations who previously had different standards of beauty, including India.
The removal of the bikini round is a conscious decision taken by the new women leaders of Miss America, in light of the #metoo campaign. While we wait to witness the changes in the Miss America contest and see on what basis contestants will be judged, let’s take a look at what is happening in India.
She was never wanted in the society, her parents sent her away. She willed and finally got what she longed for - respect. That's Aizya Naaz Joshi, India's first transgender cover girl.

“To live with all the abilities in life is not a big deal, but having disabilities in life and then living your life perfectly is the biggest achievement in life and the people who have this spirit are the born survivors.”
This line I wrote suits very well all those people who have proved that it’s not the physical capabilities or the appearance that make you achieve something in life. Rather, it’s your spirit and attitude that encourages you to achieve something in life. It makes you stand somewhere in society.
Aizya Naaz Joshi, being a transgendered woman made her own way, faced all the difficulties but didn’t gave up. She preceded 22 Female contestants and became the First Transsexual Miss World Diversity 2018. Today the whole world says to her, “We are proud of you”.
