With the COVID-19 Crisis raging across the world, let us take the time to appreciate people who are giving back and doing their best to beat the pandemic.
The Corona times prove many things to us, and one among that is the risk taken by people, especially the medical field! Frontline healthcare workers are risking their lives to help COVID-19 patients and help flatten the curve.
Among many such women who left everything to save fellow human beings is Bhasha Mukheerjee. She is now in the limelight for her kindness and love for humankind.
Bhasha, crowned ‘Miss England’ back in August 2019, is an Indian Doctor. Now, she hits social media platforms for her kind and humanitarian gestures to a pause to her charity work and serve as a doctor in the most needed times of this killer virus
Mukherjee had taken a break from her medical career to focus more on charity work which was a passion of hers. However, the Coronavirus outbreak encouraged her to take back her steth and join the fight.
There are many women in beauty paegents who are often misrepresented and portrayed a certain way. Even though many of them do try to help others, their words seldom transpire to action at times. Yet, bold and beautiful women like Bhasha deliver and make the world a better place! During these trying times, she has become an inspiration for all of us and in a way, encourages us to give back to the world too!

Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
