Having an opinion and guts to spill it out while being a woman is a disastrous recipe.
Let me tell you how, as an Indian woman.
Firstly, you will have few friends.
You will get less invitations for the fun parties because you just can’t limit your chatter to the weather and dresses.
You will get few promotions and more memos from the boss.
Relatives will keep you away from their children and cultured wives.
Your professors may also ignore your raised hand because your questions disturb their lesson plan.
Even the salesman won’t give you more discount because having too many opinion kill your femininity (they say).
And for any crime against women, within this country and elsewhere… women like you will be blamed.
Even for the failed rains, crop, Pandemic….It’s you, only you…
They would want to silence you, crush you and teach you…
Because women like you are HOPE.
A letter to our courageous sisters in Afghanistan.

While marriage brings with it its own set of responsibilities for both partners, it is often the woman who needs to so all the adjustments.
For a 25-year-old women — who tied the knot in March-2014 — the love come arranged marriage brought with it a new city, and also the “responsibility of managing household chores“.
Prior to her marriage, she learned to cook after marriage as her husband “doesn’t cook”.
“I struggled and my husband used to tell me that it would turn out better the next time. Now, I am much a better cook,” said the mother to a three-and-a-half-month-old, who chose to work from home after marriage.
Jaane Jaan is a great standalone flick, but a lot of it could have been handled better, and from the POV of the main character.
Jaane Jaan is a thriller streaming on Netflix and is adapted from Keigo Higashino’s book, ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’. I found the film to be riveting, with a nail-biting build-up. However, in my personal opinion, the climax and the treatment of the female lead was a letdown.
Disclaimer: I haven’t read the book yet, and I am not sure how true the adaptation has stayed to the source material.
(SPOILERS AHEAD. Please read after you watch the movie if you are planning to)
