I do believe in miracles and I am the one indeed; water falls of regrets no more sullied these eyes!
because I believe in this
I don’t want to change
I love myself the way I am!
thin like melting butter on a warm bread.
I want to live first the way I have been born.
You said this and that
I thought everyone is not a liar
if I am black
I ain’t no normal
I wear a crown of thorns of taunts and not ready to flaunt
In fear I tried,
applied creams and serums,
Yet my melanin was stubborn as a charcoal spot on a pedestrian.
I had no shame but not a warrior too,
I had grafted a new hope I was given facials and traumatic ways of improvement and scopes,
My pain was for sale to which I had no one to barter
I was dark and so inexpensive no one wants to grab
I wanted to slit at once in die and reborn,
to rewrite my stars
why I am like them?
I do believe in miracles and I am the one indeed.
Water Falls of regrets no more sullied these eyes!
What you gave I will retain,
what was given as here we shall keep…

Bollywood (and the Indian society, at large) needs to understand that women's sexuality is real, and lesbians don’t just hold hands and hug each other. They have sex too.
First, I have a few questions.
When does Gayatri (Rani Mukerji) find out that her husband is gay in Bombay Talkies (2013)? When her gay male colleague tells her that her husband kissed him.
It’s sickening to watch habitual offenders like Sajid Khan crying on national television for being out of work for 4 years. Really, now Sajid’s playing the victim card?
Big Boss 16’s notorious host, Salman Khan and the Colors Channel has welcomed with open arms filmmaker and comedian Sajid Khan, who’s accused of sexual abuse by not one, two or three, but nine women to date, on the show.
Make no mistake, Sajid Khan’s participation is the digital equivalent of flashing his dick to the world, especially to his victims.
Saloni Chopra, film journalist, recalls her horrific hiring interview with Sajid, and much more, in this piece. Here’s a sample of completely unrelated questions that Sajid asked her.
