A heartfelt farewell to a friend and colleague, with a wish expressed to meet again in the future. A touching poem.
It seems just yesterday when I met you, clad in a white top,
nose deep in your desktop,
Today is your farewell,
You being the workaholic still didn’t stop.
From morning to evening,
From hello to bye,
For every other teasing
all I got in return was just a sigh.
You are like the book full of stories,
You are calm like a sea,
For every lock, you have the key.
I am not gonna chat with you,
I am afraid you will post that too.
Hey girl just take it easy,
Keep your phone a little un-busy.
It’s just the start,
You are gonna make it far.
Don’t settle for anything less,
When you deserve the best.
I can nowhere come close to your art,
But these lines are just from my heart.
Your Benaras may be the best,
‘Aamchi Mumbai’ is not any less.
We will wait for you,
With open arms and heart for you.

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:
