Dear Mom, On Women’s Day, I have been bombarded with pretty messages crafted on a pink backdrop and articles on empowerment. I have been scrolling up and down my newsfeed and I have found much talk about how women are, and how they must continue to break those glass ceilings. It seems like Women’s Day is […]

The Indian media covered the demise of actor Sridevi recently. Correction. The Indian media created a circus around a tragedy – as always. The sheer thoughtlessness with which the entire event was covered, showed the media at an all time low. From depicting the scene as it may have happened, by jumping in a bathtub, […]

There were a number of ways in which I could have presented my take on Sridevi’s death. I could have spoken about the thoughtless way in which the media amplified all the “what ifs”. I could written about the outpouring of grief which found a physical manifestation in terms of the crowds thronging the streets […]

What do Ivanka’s India trip and America’s new start up visa have in common? The result of both was the same – unexpected. From the new to be Princess of the Royal corridors of Great Britain, to the existing Princess of America – the world saw plenty of dramatic feminist oriented narratives across the news […]

In a world where America has turned into one fist pumping, logic upsetting reality show, with the rest of the world and ISIS watching on, there is a pressing need for a happily ever after. A royal wedding was the one thing we all needed – and that is exactly what we are getting. We needed […]

I Married a Rajput – And I was no Padmavati

Nothing spells Rajput like honour with a capital H. Ask a Rajput man his blood group and he will confidently say H Positive. No, this is not the Padmavati in me talking, although heaven knows there are days when I would love to jump into a fire rather than face the bottomless madness of marriage […]

The smog in Delhi has been in the news lately and has even gained a whole new identity of its own. Like the lead character of a rather gory movie, its PM2.5 status has been bandied about while news item after news item has dwelled on the sheer audacity of this smog to rise beyond […]
