I was gazing at the sky at midnight. I could not sleep because I had to catch a flight to the USA By 7 Am. The Next day, I went to the Airport very eagerly and boarded a flight to the USA.
My co-passenger, a 60-year-old woman, could see the excitement on my face. She started the conversation. She was curious to know the reason for my visit to the USA. I told her that I was going to attend my friend’s daughter’s wedding.
She got a smile on her face and asked inquisitively, “Is she your best friend?.”
“I said yes.”
She was interested to know more, and I started recollecting the old memories. The conversation continued.
“We are four best friends from childhood. Myself, Shania, Indu, and Vandita. Shania and Indu are cousins. Though we all studied at different schools, we are from the same neighborhood. We knew each other. However, we were not close.
After our school Myself, Shania and Indu joined junior college, which was near our locality.
It was the first day when I entered the class, and I saw a gorgeous girl smile. Shania was timid those days. She sat along with her cousin Indu. I smiled at her and went to her and spoke with her. Shania introduced her cousin to me.
Then the three of us sat together in the college. We had much fun. After a few days, we got a misunderstanding. We didn’t speak for a year. Then again, we patched up, and we became best friends for life.
Then after our junior college, Vandita entered our group, our friendship became more robust. We never missed each other’s birthday though we went to a different college for further education. We went to many movies, parties and had much fun.
After marriage, though, we separated and settled in different countries. We never lost touch. We used to meet quite often.
Our conversation ended, and we fell asleep after having dinner. The next day I de-boarded at Chicago. My friend Vandita came to receive me at the Airport. To my surprise, my other friends Shania and Indu were already present at Vandita’s house. Four of us enjoyed it a lot.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
