Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Don't worry about your flaws and imperfections, says the poet, because these very imperfections make you what you are!
Don’t worry about your flaws and imperfections, says the poet, because these very imperfections make you what you are!
Sticks and stones have broken my bones
But words have broken my heart
When someone’s told me I’m not pretty
It’s torn my world apart
We’ve looked at all those pretty girls
On covers of magazines
All we’ve said then is
I wish I were as pretty, as lean
Am I really beautiful?
Often we’ve asked ourselves
We’ve let our minds deny it
Without listening to what the heart tells
It says that beauty is acceptance
Being comfortable in our own skin
It isn’t measured by the makeup on our faces
But by how radiant our hearts are within
Let people say what they want to
We’re way above what they do
I’m my own version of pretty
You’re the best version of you
So lets join hands and hold our heads high
And put on a strong front
We’re pretty, we’re beautiful, we’re bold
But the best thing is – we’re confident
Lets accept ourselves for what we are
Our little flaws and imperfections
Because these little things are what make us unique
Make us see beauty in our reflections.

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.
