Books are such trustworthy and reliable companions that often we find ourselves lost in their pages, daily cares and mundane worries happily forgotten. But we will always have that favourite book; the one which taught us a valuable lesson, which changed us somehow, which inspired us or touched us profoundly and made a powerful impact in our lives. Tell us about this unforgettable book in your life.

However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
Sullu vows to never, ever speak to Renu again. Every time, a Hindi film song extolls the virtues of ‘Dosti’, she feels a tide of anger within her.
