    From 96 to 82- A PCOS Weight Loss Story

    There is probably nothing that can make a woman so miserable in the society than being called ‘fat and ugly’. Of course, they would not dare to call this to my face, but they would certainly speak this behind my back. It looks like nothing I have done, achieved and won makes any sense unless I am slim. Why? I do not understand. I never intended to lose weight. I have always been the chubbiest in my circle. Short and chubby… yeah! That is how you define me. They wanted me to do what they wanted- drink green tea thrice a day, exercise in the gym for hours and look…

    Making An Entire Generation Feel Inadequate

    Even if you are a couple of years younger to me, I don’t think we belong to the same generation. We are so different. There is hardly anything common between us. It is like looking at an entirely new generation of kids. We 90s kids are still recovering from the phase of extreme technological developments. We are the last generation that actually played out in the dirt without wondering about germs and which hand-wash to use. We are the last generation that was not bombarded with the most emotionally charged advertising messages when we were 5 or 8 years old. Yes, advertisement existed then too but how easily we would…

    How Our Energies Interact, Really?

    In the last post, I was talking about the fact that we are not just people. Not just organisms with flesh, blood and bones. We are also the manifestations of energy. This is the energy that is stores in us all and often interacts with other people around. What I firmly believe is that we are all made of up of the same basic energy units but their proportion often makes us different from each other. I would like to refer to the concept of ‘Panch Bhoota’ (Indian/Hindi/Sanskrit) here. These five elements are supposed to be the very essence of human life. When you are born, you start life with a very…

    People and Energy Interactivity

    I was exposed to a lot of people and philosophies lately. Though nothing really happened in my life apart from a plan for a huge career shift, a lot happened with people who were really close to me. These people, I believe, are the very extensions of my own self. They faced many issues in life and I was lucky enough to share the burden with them. However, as the time passed by I got to learn a lot of things. The first one was that the number of people in your life doesn’t really matter. If you just have one person who would stand by you when you really…

    Glorifying Victimization

    okay so, now i have come with something that i really wanted not to write about for long. Victimization appears very nice. I mean wherever i go, i find people who talk about people who have been through a lot in their life, been there even when they were forced to eat the dust in relationships and jobs. They are talked about because they went through all this without opening their mouths, without protesting, without complaining. Not that being a rebel in every situation is good or endlessly complaining sounds too good to me, but yes, glory comes to those who ‘suffer’. why do good people never speak up? why are…

    प्लास्टिक के झण्डे से मेरा भारत महान

    मेरे नानाजी कहते हैं की उनके ज़माने में खादी या सूती कपडे के झण्डे फहराये जाते थे. कमाल की बात है, ऐसा ही एक झंडा मेरे स्कूल में भी था. बड़ा सा, खादी का झंडा. पर बड़ा भारी था. मेरी दिली तमन्ना थी की फिल्मो में दिखने वाले झण्डे की तरह ये भी आकाश में सर उठा के उड़ता रहता. खैर.   मुद्दे की बात ये है की मैंने तो बचपन से प्लास्टिक के झण्डे ही इस्तेमाल किये हैं. भाई वक्त बदला है तो वक़्त के साथ झण्डे भी बदलने चाहिए. प्लास्टिक का झंडा अपने आप में बड़ी अच्छी चीज़ है. बारिश आ जाये तो ख़राब नहीं होता. आप चाहे…

    Now this is a disputed topic I know. I have never met a girl or a woman who has never expressed her wish to be a man at least once in her lifetime.  But then, there are many occasions where being a woman is bliss and we women love it whatsoever. However, we do not really express it as openly as we do otherwise. So here in this particular post I would like to focus on career. Yes, women are very serious when it comes to career and let me focus on this point again; we take this business very seriously.  You know there are women who like the IAS…

    Why will Gandhiji’s soul never rest in peace?

    there is a lot of noise, clatter and useless chatter when it comes to taking a look back at the indian politics in the year 2011. certainly 2011 was not a favorable year, personally or politically.  i have been witnessing this ever since i was exposed to the audio visual media. i have seen politicians come twice, thrice and even more times every year to pay their share of homage to the man who changed the lives of his fellow countrymen. while Mahatma was brutally killed a long time ago his name still resonates in the ears of all and sundry in the nation and the world.  But his name…
