Men's lives remain unchanged after marriage & babies. Women too need to indulge in their guilty pleasures minus the guilt!
I love to read a good book slouching near the window or balcony, with a mug of cold coffee and music on my echo, oblivious to the world. Ehhhh then I got married. Ahhhh…had a kid. And now, this is my guilty pleasure No. 1.
I really don’t get this. Why these simple pleasures that we took for granted once, have us all wound up in a tight ball, frustrated or simply broken after getting married or having kids?
As a society, we view men having fun and living their lives, despite being a dad and husband, as entirely normal. But this should be perfectly acceptable even for women!
A visit to a salon, hanging out with friends, movies, eat outs and all things of the bygone past, are criminal activities of today? Do answer! I would love to understand why it’s completely normal for the “husband” to hang out after work (not with the wife, of course), but the opposite is unthinkable?
New dads with zero input (apart from his swimmer), get all the sympathy about sleep disturbance and next day office. When in reality, they tuck their face between the pillow, turn their backs and doze off.
Well, the list is endless. So now, we indulge in our guilty pleasures to keep us sane and with our head on our shoulders.
We shop- online, because we can’t leave the kid home and taking him/her is another day at the wild. We hit the salon with a vengeance (urban clap, same problem, can’t get it done while running around). Late night romcoms, rom-dramas and rom-action, because believe it or not, it’s simply not happening in real time.
We are constantly judged (women, of course), and sacrifice all the time. But they have zero balls to actually change the scenario, and then suffer from severe issues when someone actually does something about it.
So, gals, we need it and want it, all the same as the Y chromosome – freedom.
But till it happens, keep indulging in the guilty pleasures minus the guilt. A happy mom is way better than a grouchy mom!

People have relationships without marriages. People cheat. People break up all the time. Just because two people followed some rituals does not make them more adept at tolerating each other for life.
Why is that our society defines a woman’s success by her marital status? Is it an achievement to get married or remain married? Is it anybody’s business? Are people’s lives so hollow that they need someone’s broken marriage to feel good about themselves?
A couple of months ago, I came across an article titled, “Shweta Tiwari married for the third time.” When I read through it, the article went on to clarify that the picture making news was one her one of her shows, in which she is all set to marry her co-star. She is not getting married in real life.
Fair enough. But why did the publication use such a clickbait title that was so misleading? I guess the thought of a woman marrying thrice made an exciting news for them and their potential readers who might click through.
Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
