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!

No matter where one’s fandom lies, if one saw the clip of you visiting your son in jail, the sheer dignity would have one converted to 'being yours'!
I have done enough stuff in my journey making my son and husband often exclaim vexedly, ‘Aap Zara Sa Tham Jao Ji!’
But never in my dreams did I imagine that I would be writing an open crush-puff-piece at this stage of my life!
The female condom is the most empowering invention ever made for women who finally do not have to depend upon careless male partners.
Forget the female condom, the topic of the male condom itself is a taboo. Men find all kinds of ridiculous reasons to not use one. “I like it natural”, “I am not a baby, I know when to withdraw”, “Relax, nothing will happen!” “But when is your period?” are some of the excuses at the tip of their tongues.
With half (read dangerous) knowledge of the female body, all of them suddenly turn into biology experts!
This immature thought process coupled with the loss of erection at the time of application or even the mere mention of the condom makes a lot of men averse to the idea of safe sex. Of course, everything comes at a cost. And unfortunately, this so-called ‘natural’, intimate, no barrier sex comes at the cost of women’s physical and mental health.
