A new dialogue on women rights and safety in India

go to link The past weeks have seen quite an outcry and disgust at the opinions of the accused and defense lawyers involved in the Nirbhaya rape case made popular in the documentary “India’s Daughter” and rightly so. The suffering of the girl and their parents shook many a heart. While the portrayal in the documentary may seem to include only those elements that sensationalize the events, it was close representation of the grim reality that Indian women

Lets educate our Men first

Being a resident of Delhi for 25 years I can easily conclude the following: You wear a nice fitted top and jeans, 90% of the men will stare at you. On the other hand if you are fully clad in a salwar kameez dupatta, less than 10% of them will hardly give you a second glance. Funny isn’t it. Sad, but true story. And many women I spoke to agreed to my observation. And since

Are we really in a position to challenge the creator (GOD)?

Often I hear mind blowing arguments where people actually talk about God as if he was some peon waiting 24/7 to be at our back and call – and if he fails to appear immediately upon being called – we keep the power and authority to sack the peon!! Sometimes I wonder whether to pity such people or just plain ignore the poor ignorant! Anyways, I have given an address in the attached collage. Do

Gender discrimination has a long history across cultures and national boundaries. Discrimination in pay structures are a problem gauging women workers across the globe that needs to be addressed. Despite activism about equal pay rights for women, there exists a substantial gap in pay structures of men and women.

Dear Men, just say “Ladies Here I Come”!

According to Neil Postman, ‘What an advertiser needs to know is not what is right about the product but what is wrong about the buyer’. The advertisers of fragrances for males have tactfully used this principle to create sex-filled scopophiliac ads that capitalize on the ideas of sex and seduction. They employ the power of provocative female images in making a man’s imagination run wild. The central idea is to uplift a man’s mojo, however,

Why can’t Indians create teleserials like ‘Friends’ and ‘the Big Bang theory’?

Simple reason – we do not believe (anymore) in live-in relationships and proliferating before wedlock – we probably have witnessed the consequences of it (we are a 9000 plus years old civilization folks – remember?) which must have turned out to be a big failure for social development. ‘Friends’ shows a boy & girl living together and behaving like married couples …in the sense sharing the same bed and of course beeping…so what does the

Anybody could make physical relationship with anybody according to their desire or his physical requirement either forcibly or with the consent of his counterpart. Practicing this act nobody was responsible for any result of the incidents forged on

Movie Review: ZID: Bad Script, Poor Performances makes it waste of time

Cast: Karanveer Sharma, Manara, Mohan Kapoor & Shraddha Das. Directed by: Vivek Agnihotri. Disclaimer: I had the privilege of meeting Vivek Agnihotri way back in 2001. Then his first venture ‘Chocolate’ had not taken off. He was somebody, who despised any film that had some semblance to a Hollywood film. Yet a talented maker like him eventually resorted to smart inspirations in all his films. It’s unfortunate how our industry leaves us with little choice.

‘My husband made me a prostitute’ – How sexist is that?

So another video made itself viral on YouTube the day it got published. The hard hitting story of a young, educated, sophisticated, cultured, well spoken, good looking and… unfortunate married woman whose husband is in comma because he chose to drive home drunk after a party. Hard hitting enough, right! Women empowering – is it? Let’s analyze. First, the take away of the story per author – the whole family suffers, especially the wife when
