On Sunday, two events took me on an emotional roller-coaster. I had to break my Karwa Chauth fast without seeing the moon. And India's defeat in the T20 World Cup.
The 24th of October 2021 is a date that must be written in gold letters. Before you proceed, let me state unequivocally that this is not a political piece, nor is it published by someone who supports any particular faith.
This is the voice of a writer who couldn’t stop herself from emphasising her observation. On Sunday, two incredibly significant events have occurred.
The women of Delhi opened their fast without seeing the moon. Like the other women who had kept the fast, I also waited for the moon. The weather forecast agency reported around 8 pm and practically everyone opened their fast before 9 p.m. They were so confident in the weather forecast that they forgot the moon almost always appears after 9:30 pm.
It is said that if a lady breaks her fast without seeing the moon, her husband will either die or suffer severe losses in life. If such is the case, the lives and livelihoods of many men are now in jeopardy. Ladies, beware!
The second painful event occurred when India lost their T20 World Cup match against Pakistan. Pakistani players are renowned for dropping the simplest and most effective catch, but they were on their toes yesterday and performed something that had not been done in many years. They won by ten wickets.
I grieved like every other Indian. I mean, we badly underestimated them. Furthermore, the more we criticise them, the more they demonstrate this time that they deserve a pat on the back.
The same phenomenon occurs in life if you don’t give up hope because of your setbacks and strive harder, you’ll shine like them.
This isn’t a parable. This is something I sincerely believe. Whenever I fail, I get up, dress up, and stroll around like a princess. The Indian team will get back up on their feet as well!

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)
