Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Poem: Truth is sorry for being born, and slightly judgemental for having the spine. A silent sufferer too in the crowd while honesty weeps beside till dawn. The era of sky-high morals has left the building.
Truth is sorry for being born,
And slightly judgmental for having the spine.
A silent sufferer too in crowd,
While honesty weeps beside till dawn.
The era of sky-high morals,
Has left the building.
Silly smiles are in town.
Prejudice too just followed suit.
If you are a ruthless selfish, you’re welcome.
If you are a spineless serpent,
You are a sweetheart.
You will feel alone in your mighty heart,
Until you regret for having one.
You will walk the desert alone and thirsty,
Choking for an ounce of fresh perspective,
And gasping for opinions, not so biased,
Unless you carry a bunch of unpopular tales.
You will be pecked for good habits.
And sush-ed for right choices.
Good is the mobster,
Right is just so wrong.
Carelessness is cool,
And I can’t stress this enough.
Being heedful just signs you off.
Simple is labelled an outlaw,
And sensible is a complicated fool.
Caring is stale, an outdated stinker,
Making sense is a total looser.
Being right is an absolute redundancy.
Buried are the core values,
Six feet below the earth.
Cremated are the manners,
Common sense is next in line.
Truth is aghast at plastic confidence,
And wide-eyed at superfluous prides.
Its quiet mate called humble is missing since many summers,
While the heart of acceptance,
Stays aloof, in shivering winters.
Innocence suffers in the hands,
Of a skilled steerer.
A d vegan, an honest target at butchers,
wonders its blunder.
Simplicity is a borderline disorder.
Your heart will be pinned to wall,
And picked with darts,
If you possess the demons,
of morals unsuitable in filthy metros.

Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
There are many mountains I need to climb just to be, just to live my life, just to have my say... because they are mountains you've built to oppress women.
Trigger Warning: This deals with various kinds of violence against women including rape, and may be triggering for survivors.
I haven’t climbed a literal mountain yet
Was busy with the metaphorical ones – born a woman
Fighting for the air that should have come free
And I am one of the privileged ones, I realize that
Yet, if I get passionate, just like you do
I will pay for it – with burden, shame, – and possibly a life to carry
So, my mountains are the laws you overturn
My mountains are the empty shelves where there should have been pills
