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.

Maleesha who calls herself ‘Princess of Slum’ through her social media captions has now landed herself a space on the cover of Forest Essentials' new campaign.
“Dream, and one day that dream will come true” as said by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, many of us have goals to accomplish and we do dream about achieving them.
A huge dream has come true for a 14-year-old girl from a Mumbai slum area, Maleesha Kharwa. She has been a simple girl with a normal family until some time ago. Today she is the face of the popular skincare brand Forest Essentials.
Kharwa was first discovered by Hollywood actor Robert Hoffman in 2020 who later created a Go Fund Me page for Maleesha.
A wonderful, nuanced short film, The Broken Table by Large Short Films delves into the complexity of Alzheimers and of relationships.
Were you ever taught to love yourself for who you are? Directed by Chintan Sarda, the short film The Broken Table (2023) (streaming on YouTube) raises this question in a profound manner. The film is a paean to positivity and enforces the idea that no matter what you are, you are always enough.
The story unfolds on an evening when Deepti (Rasika Dugal) comes to take care of Giri (Naseeruddin Shah), a man who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. She is an aspiring psychologist, and it is an opportunity for her to learn about the illness.
Giri, who was a lawyer, has forgotten that he has retired, and he tries several times to go to work. However, he has intermittent memories and reminisces about the lovely times he had with his wife. He cherishes her and is therefore offended when Deepti speaks of her as being dead.
