Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
How does it feel to just be yourself in a world that constantly wants you to be someone you are not? Do you even feel anything anymore?
How does it feel?
Having so many things to say,
But biting your tongue,
May it never spill out,
They might slip and fall on it.
How does it feel?
Seeing the world,
But squeezing your eyes shut,
May it never emit a light,
They might lose their sight.
Living in vibrations,
But knitting your palms,
May it never wield,
They might lose grip on their shields.
Feeling no hunger,
But filling yourself up with your saliva,
May it never make a noise,
They might realize what they are feeding on.
Walking on the beating of your heart,
But living like dead,
May it never make someone dance,
They might know it’s still alive.
Knowing this won’t last,
But believing it would,
May it be closed in a box and forgotten,
They might know the key was never made.
Do you even feel anything anymore?

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
