A rebuttal to a daughter-in-law from a son and a husband

I scrolled through this piece on AkkarBakkar some 10 days back. I felt angry as to how the Internet, something that was supposed to give a life beyond saas bahu bitching, was falling prey to it. I wanted to rebut it then but I did not care much. Today though is a different day. I see my wife sharing this piece on her Facebook profile.

It becomes tremendously fashionable when the mother-in-law

Movie Recommendation: A Perfect Costner in a moving ‘McFarland USA’

Director: Niki Caro Cast: Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, Ramiro Rodriguez “McFarland, USA” started to look like yet another sports team film where a coach turns around a bunch of losers into winners.

To a question asked of how should I react to my parents who tease me showing Yadav as a crorepati his response was instantaneous. He came out strong when asked why does he blame the VC’s and could be able to build a Housing.com without them.

Secret the app is dead, why didn’t it work? An analysis

So Secret, the app, is dead. I remember telling a mentor, senior and a future investor 15 days after Secret launched that this one won’t work. He didn’t agree so after some convincing I downloaded the app and kept on it for a while. Then around after a month I deleted it after every time I went on it, I only saw negativity, slang match and anti feminist behavior, that too from an anonymous idiot who kept identity in dark. So why didn’t it work. Lets check some reasons. At least I felt these and would be glad to know

A tribute to Boom Boom Afridi from across the border

Let me tell you at the outset that Shahid Afridi was always someone who amazed all of us here in India. We always knew he was not extremely talented but we also knew that he had enough to be a match winner. The thin line between not being greatly talented and still being a match winner made him special. The women loved him from when I was a kid to now when am married and entering 30’s is a different story altogether. Afridi’s was one of those players who didn’t fade after initial exuberance. His name was embossed in history
