How is age measured? Is it the barely-heard tick-tock of your sparingly used Fitbit, Or the obvious streak of gray that you got for free?
How is age measured?
Is it the barely-heard tick-tock
of your sparingly used Fitbit,
Or the obvious streak of gray
that you got for free?
Is it the invisibility cloak
that lets you see
caprices of the men
who once fawned over you?
Is it seeing all those babies you held
Now grown-up and glued to TikTok?
Or the folded sarees in your wardrobe,
precious moments gathered in their folds?
Older, none the wiser,
Age admits her defeat,
Her hands up in despair,
At the likes of me.
Am I on the wheel of time
Or watching it from afar?
Because, you know,
Frames of reference.
or 22-year-old dreams?
40 years old regrets,
or decades of people-pleasing?
And 60 years (or so it seems!)
Of making stupid decisions!
Tell me again.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
