Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
If IPL can be run without risking health, can provide a pastime in these times and provide employment for all those involved (and it is a huge business, impacting thousands), it should go on.
IPL is being criticised for being held despite the pandemic tolls, but I have a different, even if unpopular opinion.
Teacher and mom here; 2 teens, so I know what I am saying.
In India, cricket is religion. When religion got everyone out, cricket can keep people home. If we could set up India-Pak matches every day, a lock down won’t be required.
Do consider an alternate opinion before slamming the IPL or people celebrating it.
Things are BAD here. Really bad. For the first time, people get how bad it is when all the money in the world and all the contacts still can’t assure you of a hospital bed with ventilator, when needed. This is for those who are privileged. We need people to stay home. IPL can do that.
Mental health among teens is horrendous. A crisis that will hit us when this one ends. If it does end. I know kids who haven’t left their homes for months. If there is something they look forward to and fight over with their friends, do stuff that has some semblance of normalcy, it is worth it.
If anything can be run without risking health, can provide a pastime in these times and provide employment for all those involved (and it is a huge business, impacting thousands), it should go on. Not seeing serious Covid numbers from the teams or hotels, other than the Wankhede staff; not seeing a scale of cases that would justify closing off something that is right now keeping many sane.
I can understand where it might seem surface level for those who don’t get sports. Can’t equate this to a statue. It is definitely not the Kumbh.
And stopping it won’t bring any more oxygen into hospitals; in fact, stopping it is likely to suck the oxygen out of several youngsters. Something to consider.
Unpopular opinion but hey, never been popular. Why start now?!

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
