For the man who laughs at the face of gender stereotypes,
For the man who is unafraid about what people might think if he shares chores or assumes parental roles with his spouse,
For the man who recognises that societal ‘rules’ are simply customs , that need to be broken if they no longer serve a purpose,
For the man who believes that the ‘Feminist Movement’ is for his well-being too, even though it sounds like the word ‘feminine’ ,
For the man who doesn’t think that being sensitive makes him weak and is unafraid to cry,
For the man who recognises how patriarchy affected the generations before him , and is determined to break the cycle,
For the man who is often called ‘hen-pecked’ by his own parents, but pays no heed, because he knows that there is no shame in making decisions together with his partner.
For the man who discovered that meaningful conversations form the core of any good relationship, and is working on bettering his communication skills,
For the man who was raised to believe that asserting his power on women made him powerful, but has now realised that it has done more harm to him than good,
For the man who lived most of his life following the majority and is now correcting his behaviour to do what is fair to the opposite gender,
For the men who are going against their ancestors and against the tide, to get closer to what it feels to be human.
For the men who know that masculine and feminine are two equally powerful forces of nature, and that the two need to be let free to restore balance in the universe.
You are seen.
You are loved.
You are the revolution.
Happy International Men’s Day to you!

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
