For those who don’t know, Double Trouble with Smriti and Jemi is a series on YouTube where Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues talk to sportspersons.
Being born and brought up in an Indian household, cricket is an inherent part of my phone updates, newspaper, TV, conversations and discussions. We don’t just watch cricket – we watch the highlights, the analysis, the interviews of cricketers, the talkshows, the training sessions and what not.
As an ardent cricket lover, I binge watched many talkshows and interviews of cricketers. (Contact me for suggestions). I was randomly scrolling through YouTube when I found this conversation between Smriti, Jemimah and Rohit Sharma.
I won’t lie – I wasn’t watching women’s cricket until two years back. Lately I realised that a sport is a sport, no matter who plays it.
At home, we watch everything related to cricket. We watch IPL, Big Bash, Ashes, women’s cricket and also highlights of matches we’ve already watched. So when I saw two women cricketers doing something exciting and enjoyable, I knew my weekend is booked.

Smriti and Jemi are so full of frolic and zeal. They talk about many aspects of their cricketing journey, like, their foreign tours, their best matches, their fun moments in the room, their learnings, etc. I find it very insightful, for anyone who wants to know about cricket.
It is endearing to listen to young women’s experiences in sports. Because we have lately made tremendous progress in our outlook towards women in sports and have a long way to go yet.
I love the show for many reasons; I’ll list out a few here.
The young ladies are very expressive and free. You feel like you are listening to a conversation of your friends. It doesn’t look like a set of questions framed to get certain answers. They ask all relevant, sensible and reasonable questions. No drama, no unnecessary topics, no craving for attention.
They have complete respect for whoever they talk to. While having fun, we can’t afford to forget who the other person is, right? Starting from the way they address their guests, everything is so decent and respectful. No dirty jokes and comments.
Their own experiences are so pleasant and feel-good. I love how they speak about their experiences in a way that it helps young sportspersons. So if you are an aspiring cricketer, I’d totally recommend it to you.
They have spoken to sportspersons other than cricketers as well! While we are finally learning to watch women’s cricket, should we not encourage people in other sports too? They’ve spoken to Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal among other women. Also, they’ve spoken to Sardar Singh, Pankaj Advani and Sreejesh PR.
Ab aap convince hogaye ki mai aur bolu? (Are you convinced yet?)
I wholeheartedly wish these young, beautiful and successful ladies all the success in their future. They deserve all the applause and recognition for making the best of the quarantine period.

Tripti Dimri had completely won everyone over with her performance in Bulbbul. so there is a great deal riding on her new Netflix film Qala.
Netflix’ latest release, Qala (2022) is Tripti Dimri’s second collaboration with Anvita Dutt and Clean Slate Filmz after Bulbbul (2020). Her performance was applauded in 2020 with Bulbbul’s character becoming well known in most Indian households.

Does Qala match up to Bulbbul?
A few Bangalore schools recently did a search of students' bags for mobile phones that are banned inside, and were shocked to find condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, etc.
When schools in Bangalore conducted surprise checks of the bags of students to see if they were bringing cell phones to school, they were in for a nasty surprise.
As this report in the Deccan Herald says, “In addition to cell phones, they found condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, lighters and whiteners in the bags of students of grades 8, 9 and 10. To their credit, the school authorities handled the situation with maturity- instead of suspending the students, they informed the parents and/ or guardians and advised them to seek counselling for their wards.”
People are, understandably shocked to find out that adolescents in the age group 12 to 15 years are potentially indulging in sexual intercourse. People largely fall into four camps–
