Let's welcome those men who follow their wives and walk alongside, or take charge of many other things while she is scaling heights.
Madhuri Dixit Nene.
I have always admired her as a person dedicated to her work. Though not always a big fan of her movies, I admire her art, and her decision to get back to her career and continue doing well.
I was surprised when I saw educated men and women making comments on her return to India like –
“Greedy for fame and adulation.”
“Uprooted her children.”
“Made her husband follow her, poor man.”
“Could have opened a dance academy there.”
“He is not doing well in the US or what?”
Really? And then you talk of respect for women’s choices?
Should these choices match with your pre-conceived rules or flourish within “allowed” territory?!
Stop judging women who have been able to do what probably many could not, and secretly dreamt of.

The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles. Most employees went about their tasks without looking at the person seated on either side of their workstation. Meenakshi was one of them.
