When you grow up as two sisters in the Indian society, you constantly come across the question about not having a brother.
When I was small, I wanted a brother
But God had different plans and what he did was definitely better
Yes, we are two sisters
And we don’t need a brother
When she cried, I was there to wipe her tears
While I was scared, she told me to fight with my fear
They told my Mom to try again
Never realizing that she will be in immense pain
Those questions fumed my anger
When we are happy, why the world needs to bother?
Our Parents gave us the wings to fly
There was nothing on Earth, which we couldn’t try
Our gender was never a limiting factor
Rather a kick to try stuff that was harder and tougher
Our Dad went and we were left with tears
Soon the question was popped, that was hard to bear
“A Son can only lit his Dad’s pyre…”
We defied, we cried and had the courage to dare
As we are proud daughters of our loving Father
And we don’t need a brother.

No matter where one’s fandom lies, if one saw the clip of you visiting your son in jail, the sheer dignity would have one converted to 'being yours'!
I have done enough stuff in my journey making my son and husband often exclaim vexedly, ‘Aap Zara Sa Tham Jao Ji!’
But never in my dreams did I imagine that I would be writing an open crush-puff-piece at this stage of my life!
The female condom is the most empowering invention ever made for women who finally do not have to depend upon careless male partners.
Forget the female condom, the topic of the male condom itself is a taboo. Men find all kinds of ridiculous reasons to not use one. “I like it natural”, “I am not a baby, I know when to withdraw”, “Relax, nothing will happen!” “But when is your period?” are some of the excuses at the tip of their tongues.
With half (read dangerous) knowledge of the female body, all of them suddenly turn into biology experts!
This immature thought process coupled with the loss of erection at the time of application or even the mere mention of the condom makes a lot of men averse to the idea of safe sex. Of course, everything comes at a cost. And unfortunately, this so-called ‘natural’, intimate, no barrier sex comes at the cost of women’s physical and mental health.
