Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
This is how these songs and movies become popular; this music is corrupting the youth. Where are the ministers now, or the certifying jury who passes films or gives the green signal to songs?
A newsflash this morning… A 16 year old gang raped and killed by her cousins; her grandmother intervened and got raped.
We still live in a country where ‘getting raped’ is judged by the length of the clothes we wear. I am sure in the above news when you hear this you must have had an image of a girl in shorts and a grandmother in a suit or saree. You may also have imagined both in short clothes which is nearly impossible coz still we women are supposed to dress our age.
I scream and want an answer. Are our daughters, sisters, mothers, and even grandmothers safe? The answer is NO.
And what we do as good citizens? We tell our kids to “do good things” and then dance with them on the songs that normalise RAPE. Yes, we do.
Last night there was someone driving beside me, in full volume. The song was Aafat, from the new film Liger.
Everyone keeps talking of boycotting this and that – please go and listen to the song first and then decide and instead of boycotting the good changes let’s boycott such songs!
Let’s make this #hashtag viral #BoycottAafat. This song clearly shows that rape is normalised. At first, we get enervated by the lyrics but, in order to make the remix, Bollywood has used sound effects of ‘rape scenes’ from old movies.
“Chod do”-“Bhagwan ke le Jane do”.
What is this bullshit?! This is cleverly hidden behind the amazing beats that are very enjoyable, and these disturbing sounds have been put in as “sound mixing’! This is how these songs and movies become popular; this music is corrupting the youth. Where are the ministers now, or the certifying jury who passes films or gives the green signal to songs?
All those who just support and find reasons behind the rape, or think that ‘provocative clothes or nature of women’ results in rape, think of this cancer in our society. Ban such songs and work on law amendments where such cases don’t happen. Otherwise we could have many Daminis and Nirbhayas, not all of who come into the light where people will make a chain and don’t give up until they get justice. Usually, we see and read such news and we forget it, every single day. Many just die in dingy dark corners.
We indeed do not need such songs; we need more stringent laws, and no loopholes for rapists to be released. Do it for the sake of the nation. This is my plea to the lawmakers.

Neena Gupta’s take on love between a man and woman opens a can of worms. She’s speaking her truth, which is a reality for so many people, but is it universal?
Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
