I love books.
Growing up, I was surrounded by books. Everyone in my family had a habit of reading and I being the youngest quickly picked up this habit.
I love the small of coffee, tea, petrol and books. If you ever see me in a book store, you will find me sniffing every book that I pick up to read.
I love spending time inside bookstores. If you gave me a choice to go clubbing or to sit in a bookstore that sits adjacent to a coffee shop, I would definitely choose the latter.
I am not an intellectual person. I am simply someone who likes to read, and this habit has helped me in so many ways. Being a woman more so. But most importantly books have kept me sane.
Whenever I feel low, happy, or lonely I pick up a book. There is a book for every feeling.
‘The monk who sold a Ferrari’,lifted me up when I was feeling a little low during my college years.
‘Gone with the wind’, showed me what an independent woman looks like.
And more recently the ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ series kept my weekends vibrant.
I have observed that people can leave you feeling lonely, drained or even left out, but if you have a book with you no one can touch your sanity.
A book protects you. It speaks to you and keeps you company. It broadens your horizon. It is more than a good habit.
They do not say for nothing ‘that a well read woman is a dangerous woman.’
She is dangerous because she is intelligent. She is dangerous because she knows to be self sufficient. And she is dangerous because you will never find her lonely. Whenever a little loneliness does creep up, she can always be rescued from it by a valiant book. Your knight in shining armour isn’t a man after all, but its a book who can leave you enamoured with heightened emotions.

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.
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.
