Twitter is not just for tweeting out news and trivia or sharing details about your daily routine; it is an excellent tool to connect with like-minded people from around the world. As an active Twitter-er (yes, that is a word, I believe), I have had the opportunity to connect with and interact with some of the most interesting moms on Twitter.
The following 10 Indian moms on Twitter (in no particular order) tweet about being a mom, parenting, family life and best of all, invite you into their worlds. In other words, follow them NOW!
1. @mommylabs – I know Rashmie, the mom behind Mommy Labs and am amazed by her creativity and learning through play ideas. Follow her Twitter stream if you’re seeking creative ways to teach kids about science, maths, or simply, have fun.
2. @McAfee_cybermum – Tweeting about keeping kids safe online, this is one Twitter account that you, as a parent, must follow.
3. @putti_prapancha – Mom to Putti, this Twitter mother will help you find the best craft projects to do with the kids. From playing with shredded paper to smashing Styrofoam bowls, you can be sure that her Twitter stream will keep you inspired with ideas.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
