Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
From the time we are little, we are told how to talk. How to run how to stoop, how to trot how to walk, When we resist, we are told to stop and not swirl. Oh, is it what it means to be a girl?
From the time we are little, we are told how to talk,
How to run how to stoop, how to trot how to walk,
When we resist, we are told to stop and not swirl,
Oh, is it what it means to be a girl?
Everywhere I go, I tend to feel exposed,
Worst! Even my family judges me the most,
“What is she wearing?” “It’s too much,” “It is too less”,
It’s a lot of being my gender, Dear god please bless…
Periods are a taboo and no one makes it easy,
It’s nothing like the ads, which shows it so breezy,
cramps, cravings and stains are a lot,
The women not experiencing these are God’s favourites, are they not?
Talking to boys is nothing less than nightmares,
The feminism movements gave us nothing but more stares,
Metoo or Youtoo, the movement failed us all,
Most culprits walked free, and the cases did nothing but stall…
This is the least of the issues, the matter is more grave,
Infanticide and foeticide and dowry makes us slaves,
Is it okay to rape or kill because of male hormones?
If that’s the case, let’s test the female ones and let bygones be bygones…
The world is so difficult, but slowly I see a change,
Women are slowly evolving, working and growing in range,
My friend is a doctor and hers an engineer,
Their friend is unmarried at 33 and another is a queer…
The change is slow, but it is here to stay,
Let’s make it definite and throw our fears away,
Next time when someone tells you how to swirl,
Show them how to do it because I AM A GIRL

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.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
