I'm a true patriot but when it comes to travelling in and around India I don't think twice before venturing out. Here are the reasons why.
I’m a true patriot but when it comes to travelling in and around India I don’t think twice before venturing out. Here are the reasons why.
Our nation is stunning when it comes to enjoying the bounties of nature. It has everything, right from seashores, to mountainous terrains. From arid deserts to lush green landscapes. India has the best of the man-made edifices and temples. No one can beat our ancestors when it comes to building magnificent structures with precision. When you visit temples down South, you’ll realise what I’m trying to say. Same goes with the lavish Palaces in Rajasthan and forts in Maharashtra. Our country can easily surpass and supersede other nations as a tourism hub. I’m a true patriot but when it comes to travelling in and around India I don’t think twice before venturing out.
Majority of the structures of prime historic and artistic predominance are poorly maintained. With every other structure looking gloomy and dilapidated, one is just not motivated enough to visit them. Same goes with natural resources. I’m a Mumbaikar. The city has some amazing beaches but I’m not able to enjoy any one of them because of low maintenance. We had a similar experience recently when we visited Alibaug via RORO ferry.
The ferry experience was good but I felt disgusted visiting the shores of Alibaug. The beaches are filthy. I had once enjoyed the beauty of Kashid beach. Somehow even that ended up being a disappointment. The place has the potential to become second Goa but what it lacks is the zeal to attract tourists.
The condition of roads, if one wants to explore roadways, is limited. I understand there are few good national highways but the overall scenario of roads and traffic management sucks big time. Thus limiting the options to railways and airways. I better keep my views about the former to myself.
It’s difficult to find good washrooms anywhere in the country. Often one is forced to control their breathing and close their eyes shut if in case one ends up using a public loo.
For a girl/woman, it becomes a herculean task to find a good hygienic place to piss.
As females we are conditioned to control all our urges this includes the right to piss too. Atrocious I say!
I have seen a majority of Women haplessly holding on to their bladders ( mentally) thus inviting UTIs and other health hazards.
For a guy, it’s so simple to just unzip anywhere, anytime in front of anyone. Men don’t have to think twice before unzipping their pants to relieve themselves but can a lady expect the same privilege?
The men and their desires are proving to be more of a nuisance to this nation.
They act more like a hungry predator on the prowl waiting to devour any lady who tries to enjoy her Fundamental right of freedom.
Their, ever ready for public display, cellular dildos are a menace to this society.
Can our Nation come up with better infrastructure, maintenance and laws to encourage in-house tourism?
I remember, my husband and I asked the hotel staff in Switzerland, “ Is the city safe for night photography?” To this, the guy replied with a tinge of pride in his tone, ” Of course, this is Swiss, here everyone and everything is safe. Always!”
How I wish to repeat and believe what he said for my country, too.

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
