Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
Unlike the earlier wives or girlfriends, Ms Sharma was already a celebrity with a huge following, before she got hitched. Why should peeps question now, when she shared her thoughts about one of the toughest times of their life?
Behind every successful woman, there is a ‘Kaam Waali Bai’ and a ‘Calm Waale Spouse’.
Similarly, behind every successful married man, there is a fabulous understanding woman. She could be the warm cuddler, a fierce tigress or someone who will hold the mirror to show the true picture.
Closer home, ’Virushka’ have often redefined couple goals. They have regularly cheered for each other, teased and shared cutesy soft-focus pics while so many swooned and sighed.
The latest note by Anushka Sharma on her SM handle talks about her husband’s resignation (as the Indian men’s cricket team’s captain) and the journey they have had together so far.
This post, dripping with ardent love, (not the ‘ishq waala’ love but ‘Pyaar waala’ love that comes after sharing your bathrooms and witnessing your man up close in life’s highs and lows!) is her wearing her heart on her sleeve.
This Insta share, about her feelings, about her man on her TL, has many getting their tighties in a bunch.
‘What is her claim to fame to air her not so pristine views about Indian Captaincy’ some ask. Especially when the spouses of past captains didn’t share their inner views for the outer world’s consumption!
Virat Kohli was the captain for 7 whole years! Insta was launched in India in 2010. So do your math! It took some time for Social Media to explode into the beast that it is now!
Unlike the earlier wives or girlfriends, Ms Sharma was already a celebrity with a huge following, before she got hitched. She was sharing stuff routinely on SM with many lapping up eagerly all that she dished out. Why should peeps question now, when she shared her thoughts about one of the toughest times of their life?
Everyone is wired differently. Period. Comparisons are odious.
Is this question valid even?
Talking on social media, and seeking solace in the love you receive from total strangers is sometimes very comforting. But to grudge a person even this is sad on so many levels.
How one decides to show love to one’s own, is really one’s own business. Especially if they stick to their own domains. Who are we to suggest how Anushka should express her love to her mate?
The one who has been loved (unconditionally) will surely resonate. But the world is made up of all sorts.
Didn’t like her showing support to her spouse on cyberspace and the emotional echo it garnered amongst the netizens?
There are plenty more shares to spew vitriol on.
And for God’s sake, a woman having a thinking brain ain’t a crime! Celebrate such a woman, emulate her and not castigate her. These are just attempts to silence women in one more field of their lives.
Better still, find a worthier cause to raise a storm. God knows, there are enough messes floating out there!

As he stood in front of his door, Nishant prayed that his wife would be in a better mood. The baby thing was tearing them apart. When was the last time he had seen his wife smile?
Veena got into the lift. It was a festival day, and the space was crammed with little children dressed in bright yellow clothes, wearing fancy peacock feather crowns, and carrying flutes. Janmashtami gave her the jitters. She kept her face down, refusing to socialize with anyone.
They had moved to this new apartment three months ago. The whole point of shifting had been to get away from the ruthless questioning by ‘well-wishers’.
“You have been married for ten years! Why no child yet?”
I huffed, puffed and panted up the hill, taking many rest breaks along the way. My calf muscles pained, my heart protested, and my breathing became heavy at one stage.
“Let’s turn back,” my husband remarked. We stood at the foot of Shravanbelagola – one of the most revered Jain pilgrimage centres. “We will not climb the hill,” he continued.
My husband and I were vacationing in Karnataka. It was the month of May, and even at the early hour of 8 am in the morning, the sun scorched our backs. After visiting Bangalore and Mysore, we had made a planned stop at this holy site in the Southern part of the state en route to Hosur. Even while planning our vacation, my husband was very excited at the prospect of visiting this place and the 18 m high statue of Lord Gometeshwara, considered one of the world’s tallest free-standing monolithic statues.
What we hadn’t bargained for was there would be 1001 granite steps that needed to be climbed to have a close-up view of this colossal magic three thousand feet above sea level on a hilltop. It would be an understatement to term it as an arduous climb.
