I Binged watched Four More Shorts Please season two and it reminded me of the quote ‘O what a tangled web we weave’.
This tangled web is the story of the four girls Damini ,Umang, Anjana and Siddhi, the four girls we met in the first season of Four More Shorts. The girls are back with more confusion about their relationships with their partners since some have a plethora to chose from. In spite of their perplexity their wardrobe is super stylish and they look like vogue models. If one wanted to buy those clothes but except for Anjana’s clothes there would be no place where you could wear those clothes unless you are invited to the Truck bar.
The four girls have the same emotional baggage as last season and like last season they have great bonding .They always meet at the truck bar run by Jeh , Damini’s ex soon to be current for a drink. They cry on each other’s shoulders get drunk are over exuberant and turn to each other for advice but they do exactly where there hormones take them.
To be fair to them they all have careers but their emotional life takes over their careers. Anjana is a hotshot lawyer and has bought great accounts to her company but she messes up on her personal front. She hooks up with her senior partner in the firm because he says he is an open marriage. But when the wife discovers it and she says they thought they were in an open marriage the partner says very cryptically that even if you knew it was a normal marriage would you have been able to restrain yourself.
Damini self publishes a book because it is about a raging political controversy and her book is banned ,but that doesn’t apparently seem as important as like the previous season she still cannot make her choice between her two boyfriends Jeh and Dr.Amar.Siddhi is trying to mend relationships with her father and make him proud of her and is also trying to make a career as a stand up comedian.She is SOBO and her partner in her stand up comedy show is NOBO .Their sex scenes are genuinely amusing with Siddhi’s Victoria secrets underclothes and the boyfriends Rupa briefs competing in a tacky flat but still pines for her old boyfriend.Umang is the gym instructor who is in love with Samara a big star and works hard to lift her out of depression but somehow Samara doesn’t look like a coveted Bollywood or Hollywood heroine.She looks too old and jaded especially in front of Umang.The topics discussed in the show are relevant and sensitive like misogyny at work place,infidelity ,sexual orientation miscarriages ,parenthood and going against the establishment but it is only discussed on the periphery.
The sets are great and the dialogues are scintillating .You feel you are at a cocktail party air kissing all the guests. It is like reading a mills n boon. Its nice while reading it but you forget it the moment you finish the book. No character gets under your skin or their is nothing which you can mull about.Its enjoyable while you are watching it but you do wish in the end that you had watched something better something with more substance.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
