Modernity and strength comes with the mind. It comes with the key words of acceptance and ignorance: Acceptance of one’s own self, looking within oneself and discovering.
When we think of Helen or actress Bindu, the image of a woman dancing in a bar with a glass of wine comes to mind. On the other hand the thoughts of Hema Malini or Asha Parekh makes us think about a saree clad good woman.
In today’s world however we have begun to think of a new definition of a “modern” or a “strong” woman in all it’s glory. Let us look at the description of some of its forms:
Now let us analyse of what a strong woman really is : Any woman who respects and accepts herself and others and is not afraid to speak for the right things while valuing other’s opinions on matters, at the same time ignoring the unnecessary rants and focusing on her goals.
What girls do is copy celebs and their style. What we should note is that even celebs have their own unique self. Genelia d’souza left work for a long time after marriage while Kareena kapoor did not. Priyanka chopra changed her name and Anushka sharma did not. Every person’s choice is unique and should be respected at all costs. A tailor made reference of how a woman should be is what got the world in trouble at first.
Ditch being copy cats and start having a perspective on things. Learn to analyse and retain the important things in life. In short, try being the best version of yourself, that’s the only competition you should be worried about.

Before expecting the daughter in law to love, respect and accept the new family, it is only fair that the family demonstrates all of these first.
If you are a married Indian woman, one of the first words you hear from your in laws is that you are now a daughter of the house. How true is that statement though? Are daughters in law really treated as daughters or is this only lip service?
A friend recently confided how hurt she felt when she wanted to visit her in-laws along with her husband but was told not to, because the in-laws wanted time alone with their son. Naturally, she was taken aback since she had always been fed this trope – that she was the daughter, not the daughter in law. Why then this sudden keeping at arm’s distance? Would a son in law ever be told not to accompany his wife on her visit to her parents because they wanted quality time with their daughter? That is unimaginable in a patriarchal society.
It is ok to want time alone with the married offspring but how does that meld into the Indian family system, where independent choices are less important than the whole family coming together?
Beauty is a very clever, very evil capitalist tool. It traps those who have it into hanging on to it for dear life and those who don't into mutilating, torturing themselves to achieve the unachievable.
I recently wrote a piece about MP Shashi Tharoor’s tweet in which he had shared a pic with six women parliamentarians tagging them and saying “Who says the Lok Sabha isn’t an attractive place to work?”
There was a rash of comments on the post shared on Instagram, which ranged from “chill, it’s just a compliment” and “stop overthinking compliments”, to (worried) men lamenting about “these feminazi”.
Here’s my answer to all those comments.
Gender equality should be a given - no one is better or lesser than the other. Women should give no one else the power to consider them inferior!

Being a woman or a man is not a matter of choice but it is what we are born with and along comes its various manifestations. Apart from the biological variations there is nothing to be considered different about them as human beings.

Have an aim. Be ambitious. Stand on your feet. Be independent. We all have heard these strong motivating lines in our life.
However, these are not so valid for women. For women, having an aim means get married at the right age. Be ambitious means, take care of your husband’s home. Stand on your feet means, you should be aware of all the household chores. Be independent means, dedicate your life to others.
