As we welcome 2022, let us focus on everything wonderful that we see around us, be grateful for every blessing we have been bestowed with, and strive to spread love and compassion among our fellow beings!
We embark on a journey on the threshold of every new year as we get ready to bid the old one adieu.
Marching forward, we nurture the desire to bask in the glory of new beginnings that promise us happier days.
Looking back in retrospect, a thought immediately strikes the mind: Life has changed dramatically in the last couple of years due to the pandemic. Precious lives have been lost, peace and tranquillity have been at stake, and at times, the future has seemed totally uncertain.
It is not possible to ignore the reality that the crisis still exists. Yet life must go on, and we need to build up strength and resilience to brave the storm.
It is always hope and positivity that keep us alive, fill our days with joy, and beautifully define our existence on earth. As we welcome 2022, let us focus on everything wonderful that we see around us, be grateful for every blessing we have been bestowed with, and strive to spread love and compassion among our fellow beings!
Happiness is what we can create for ourselves in more ways than one. Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.
On this momentous occasion, I have penned a poem laced with the theme of harnessing optimism for the sake of a brighter universe!

A long pause it is to ponder
before reaching the finish line.
In retrospection, the gaze freezes
on the bygone days,
as emotions encircle and engulf.
A question perplexes,
causing a conflict,
while seeking an answer
to ease the mind.
Were they the waves
of love or hate,
hope or despair,
calm or restlessness,
pleasure or pain?
Was it triumph or defeat
that wove the history
of the human race?
A picture emerges
on the horizon.
A beautiful story unfolds
as teeming multitudes walk the ground.
The crisp air, the colourful blooms,
the happy faces all unite
striving to build a world,
joyful and sublime!
Showers of blessed ecstasy descend,
as the eye and ear catch
those pleasant sights and sounds.
The first cry of the newborn,
the warmth of a gentle hug,
the radiance of a bright smile,
the tears of joy streaming down the cheeks,
the kindness of a helping hand,
and the magical melodies
light the planet with vibrant hues!
Even in the storm,
the tide of happiness
will never cease
to caress the earth,
for it’s an old gospel,
yet no less true!
So amidst the clouds,
let us trace
the golden hues
that light our souls.
in a gentle embrace,
let us take the steps
to welcome a year
fragrant and new!

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
