Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
I may not assure you the sympathy of everyone but can surely promise my empathy, my belief in you.
One bad experience, one bad person and one bad moment can never take away from you the right to a dignified life. Your one step may look meaningless to you, but do you know your courage may be a rope of inspiration for millions of others to make an effort and crawl out of the abyss of abuse?
You are like that phoenix that was burnt to ashes and yet rose again.
For a person who has gone through gender-based violence or any kind of violence, the journey from a victim to a survivor is slow and long. Because even if you try to forget or move on, you are victimized again and again by the society which has only momentary sympathy for you.
My advice to you will be – Don’t expect them to feel the pain you have gone through, and don’t look for any approval from them. You are a fighter. You have already done your bit by raising your voice.
Always remember, Your courage will one day motivate many women to raise their voices against injustice. You will be the cause of their empowerment.

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
