Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
I'm chandelier earrings up for rent by the hour in dark alleys with betel stains, a child-woman waiting for her customer. I'm a thick bush of petals for your daily worship.
I’m chandelier earrings up for rent by the hour in dark alleys with betel stains, a child-woman waiting for her customer. I’m a thick bush of petals for your daily worship.
I wear a Peter Pan hat and a red gown
that slowly unfurls.
Tiny vermillion dots tail me,
bringing bell metal and incense in their wake.
You sew me up when
I’m still a kid, say it’s a garland pure for gods —
I writhe in shock, then numbing pain…
I quench your thirst
with blood, my tart blood.
I’m your shoeshine girl…
for centuries, clearing out the muck beneath your feet.
Pity your conscience doesn’t
I’m chandelier earrings up for rent
by the hour in dark alleys with betel stains,
a child-woman waiting
for her customer.
I’m a thick bush of petals
for your daily worship.
I’m also a warship, slashed and burned
and cigarette-butted into submission —
I’m a chameleon, really.
But most of all, I am raw flesh,
a naked goddess,
throbbing with all the gore
I have drunk, slick with the
sweat of justice.
They call me a chilli
sometimes, when the heat
bothers them too much.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
