Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
As women learn to deal with the anger they feel every day due to the constant misogyny we face, we are much better equipped to 'hulk out' if needed.
So I just finished the first episode of She-Hulk and what struck me as the most interesting factor was how they defined the personality of She-Hulk as very different from the Hulk.
Bruce – or Hulk is a little frustrated and confused as to why his cousin Jen (She-Hulk) is so much better at transitioning, warning her that she might not be able to control risking lives under stress and anger. After all, he hulks out when angry.
So when Bruce points out that hulking out is triggered because of stress or anger, Jen replies that ‘stress or anger’ is the baseline emotion of any woman every day. Which is so true, and I am sure every woman would relate to it.
How many times we feel stress on issues that won’t matter to men!
Many more such questions bother us while we go on with our daily lives. In short, worry and stress is the every-minute state of every woman.
In another conversation, Bruce says, “We have to make sure of your ability to tolerate the stress and regulate your emotions, especially your anger.”
To that Jen replies, “Here’s the thing, Bruce. I am great at controlling anger. I do it all the time. When I am catcalled in the streets, when incompetent men explain my own area of expertise to me. I do it pretty much every day because if I don’t, I will get called ’emotional’, or ‘difficult’, might just literally get murdered. So I am an expert at controlling my anger because I do it infinitely more than you.”
How many times we as woman have suppressed our anger or emotion so that we are not stereotyped as difficult?
How many times have we avoided certain paths to steer clear of bullies and stalkers?
How many times have we all wondered if we should give up our dreams or point of view to maintain peace at home?
How many times have we over compensated because we are women?
Innumerable times. We woman are raised to be passive angry all the time, instead of expressing it. So I guess we all are more capable of hulking out than any man, because the secret to it is that we are always angry.
… And anger is good, towards inequality, towards gender stereotypimg, towards mansplaining.
So cheers to all the She-Hulks out there, flexing their emotions.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
