Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
The migrant from the native, Caution thrown to winds, they risk dying to live, The bridges they built with their labour and sweat, Now stained with their tears and blood…
They washed his feet and treated him like God
They obsessed over him to get into power
When the storm came they forgot
That their Gods are hungry and desolate
Shut out of the tall gates
Left to face their dark fate
Trudging miles, empty hands and hollow eyes
Allegory of abandoned dreams and hope
Poverty and helplessness no less violent to cope
The crisis churned the rich from the poor
The migrant from the native
Caution thrown to winds, they risk dying to live
The bridges they built with their labour and sweat
Now stained with their tears and blood,
No building too tall, no road too long
No distance too far can keep them bereft
Of their home and hearth
Once the wailing hearts find peace
The babies with full bellies go to sleep
What they earned and what they lost
Is hard math for them to sort
Their backs broke but spirits intact
It’s only a matter of time in fact,
When they will come back
With their chisels and hammers
And brushes and saws
To dream new dreams
And to heal old scars.

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.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
