5 Things Dusky Women Are Tired Of Hearing

Let’s face it in a country that is predominately patriarchal by nature, being a woman is as it is a tough job. And to add to this is the fact that we as a nation have always been so obsessed with fair skin that being a dusky woman is tough task in India.

Thanks to this obsession, most of us have grown up watching Fair and Lovely ads and the rest have contributed whole hearted ly to the booming 2000 crore industry of skin-whitening products. None the less, here are a few annoying things that Indians seriously need to stop saying to dusky women.

1. Use a fairness creams

3

So anyone who is remotely dusky will definitely have heard of this one. As much as we like to argue about intellectual capabilities and talents what people tend to focus on are just your looks. And if you happen to be dusky then, god help you! And in this case god is a fairness creams. As using them “magically” will alter your complexion.

2. Cover your face before you go out!

rs_500x277-150304133530-57e213f468d30ef4b656230caff274a7.jpg

Yes because the sun is focusing all his energies only on me! Well most of the time seriously wish to counter this dialogue with “Why should I cover my face when I go out? Perhaps, you should think about covering your mouth, like forever.”
3. Only fair and beautiful brides are wanted

tumblr_mvwtqu1zl71ra4u9mo1_500

One of my distant aunties shot out at me and said “rang aisa hi raha toh shaadi kaun karega tumse?” yes because being fair is the only criteria to know my worth? And in case you happen to think like this, then I have already rejected you in my mind for being a dumb retard.

4. We don’t have that in your shade

anigif_mobile_3221a8580d0781e9a53470fdcccaee50-0

Yes because you judging me is all that I need. And if you don’t know dusky people are way more attractive than fair one. I have two words for you, Deepika Padukone. So stop being a JUDGMENTAL RACIST. And just so you know, I exactly know what looks good on me.

5. Why don’t you try this…

anigif_enhanced-25774-1395767439-24

I have personally heard this line from so many relatives that I have lost track of it. From besan to rose water, the suggestions are been endless and consistent. All I want to say to them is to thank you them for the concern and ‘free’ advice, but I personally don’t need to match their idea of beauty!!

10 Things I Learnt From Game Of Thrones

The long-awaited season finale of the fifth season of HBO’s hit series ‘Game of Thrones’ got over. With it what also came to end was another season of sex, scheming and scandal. The only thing that still remains consistent is the fight to win the ultimate throne; as the various houses and kingdom are still fighting till the last blood to attain this glory.

The television drama is based on novelist George RR Martin’s series that has kept viewers across the globe hooked. And even though the story is deeply rooted in fantasy, still Game of Thrones has manages to teach us important lessons about life in the real world. Here are ten universal truths which extend far beyond the Seven Kingdoms of Game of Thrones.

1. Don’t trust anyone
1

Ned Stark’s death came as a shocker to many. But the man should have known better than trusting the likes of Littlefinger.

2. Bravery comes with a cost

tumblr_npzyrwGbOQ1sdw53wo1_250

Jon Snow fans are yet to recover from this one! With hopes that he comes back in Season 6. He was betrayed by his own!

3. Never underestimate your opponent 

jFjwTX7

By sheer size he may be the not the most macho of the lot on the show but Tyrion can give men twice his size a run for their money.

4. The past is never undone

jamie-the-things-i-do-for-love

Jamie might have thought that he did the right thing to hide his relationship a secret yet the seasons of Game of Thrones have gone on to prove the fact that his past has not left him. In fact it wasn’t undone by his feeble attempt to kill Bryan.

5. Everybody makes mistakes

4fc98df2547d142fcbbf5f2e5b8cdd87

Sansa Stark’s fell in love with the wrong guy and since then she has paid the price of with the life of her family. With no one by her side, her life changed for the worst the day she decided to marry Joffrey and the recent mistake of trusting Littlefinger and not to forget that her most recent mistake of marrying Ramsay might just cost her, her own dear life.

6. Teenagers always cause trouble

tumblr_inline_mw3ynqXHw51s87dfu

Game of Thrones wouldn’t have been the same if it hadn’t been for King Joffrey who was drunk on power. And don’t even get me started on the amount of trouble he caused.

7. Weddings are always stressful

tumblr_n406q4KwlM1qfisvuo1_500

So far we have had three major wedding sequences in Game of Thrones and none of them have had a happy ending as such. For those wondering, I have two words for you; ‘Red Wedding’. Need I say more.

8. Life is unfair

red-wedding-stabs-baby

This was perhaps one of the most brutal scene in Game of Thrones. I mean killing an unborn child in the womb is just way to… I don’t even have the words to describe it..

9. Power corrupts

anigif_enhanced-7047-1431455749-8

Look what power made Stannis do, he got his own daughter burnt right in front of his eyes. And in Season 5 see what being high on power eventually do to him..

10. Never spare your enemy 

tumblr_n6q6m1Fyp31qjvcyho1_500

We all know what happened when Oberyn Martell and Mountain got in the fight. If only Oberyn hadn’t showed mercy he would have lived to tell the tale.

8 Things I Learnt From How I Met Your Mother

Over the years watching the show ‘How I Met Your Mother’ has been my guilty pleasure. Coming from the makers of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, this show too somehow managed to touch many viewers hearts as well. And before we knew it we too were on a quest to find out who was the mother of Ted’s adorable children.header_HIMYM_600

Like ‘Friends’ ‘HIMYM’ too traces the journey of a group of friends. And while watching the up’s and down’s in their life, it made me more capable to deal with a lot of stuff on my own. So much so, that I ended up learning a lot from it. Here are a compilation of eight things that left a mark on me:

1. Whatever may be the situation you can never go wrong with one thing at least. All you need to suit up and face the challenges like a man. And let’s face it Barney Stinson’s suit made him stand out of the crowd.tumblr_lq91bw5CJU1qj0zk3o1_500

2. You need not compromise in love and jump the gun for just about anyone. Sit patiently and wait for the right one to make all the effort. Isn’t this what Ted did and see how things turned out for him?anigif_enhanced-28493-1396185551-5

3. Even though you cannot predict what the future has in store for you but this doesn’t mean you should go back to the past just for the sheer comfort of the situation. Robin knew what she was saying and try and understand what she meant.anigif_enhanced-buzz-1730-1388952617-6

4. The good, the bad and the ugly all make more sense once you have a partner in crime. Just like Barney Stinson did at one point of time. Life is more beautiful when you have someone to share it with.anigif_enhanced-24127-1393650234-2

5. And when everything is going out of sorts the right thing to do is to take time off and perhaps try playing a game. I suggest laser tag!! We all know that Barney Stinson did love the game, it’s never too late to try it out.anigif_enhanced-1431-1396180735-1

6. Barney Stinson may not know much about relationships but believe me this guy made the most sense some situation. Haven’t you felt what Barney is trying to say in this picture? Don’t you know the feeling! It’s okay to vent out what you feel sometimes.Barney-how-i-met-your-mother-28315207-500-282

7. Every once in a while an awesome thing to do is  to ease off the tension and dance your ass off! Believe you me, it actually works like magic. So put on your dancing shoes.ted-moseby-how-i-met-your-mother

8. It’s basic human nature to crave for something that cannot be yours. But then, when it comes to life not everything can be so easy.  robin

Open Letter To The Women In India

Amidst all the congratulatory Whatsapp messages and Facebook statuses for Women’s Day take a minute to think, what are WE really celebrating here? By ‘we’ I refer to the women in our country who I feel have NOTHING to celebrate this year.BrokenChains

Rather as a country we should collectively bow down our heads in SHAME! Just marking a day for it isn’t enough. I am tired of living in a country where women are treated as the weaker sex not by sheer virtue of our size but by the years and years of indoctrination!

When will it be okay for me to do as I please, to wear what I want, to go where I want and NOT be worried about all the lecherous eyes on me? Only when all this happens will I feel the need to happily celebrate this day again. Until then I don’t see the need for it.

I am sick and tired of being treated differently just because my gender. While the west has come up with the #HeForShe campaign what is India doing as a country on this pressing matter? Banning movies, fighting over whether a documentary should be shown or not, banning a certain food item and before you know it, THEY MIGHT AS WELL BAN WOMEN AS WELL.

To the fellow women of this country, watching the Nirbhaya documentary made my blood boil. It made me sit up and wonder as to why hasn’t anything changed still. Why is that a rape victim has to live with the stigma all her life and the men who has done this to her are guilt free? It’s equally appalling to see his reasoning in the video and that of the defending lawyer who quite frankly shouldn’t be allowed to practice at all.

It’s NOT the girl’s fault ever, then why treat her like this? I request all the women of the country to be the change they want to see. To speak up and take a stand and not be okay with the secondary status.

And to the men, NO, I am not asking the men of the country to become knight and shining armours rather I am just them to become responsible fathers, brothers, husbands and sons to the women of the country. This is not only the women’s fight it is also your fight. For men of quality always respect women’s equality. Cause in the end always remember, it was a women who brought you into this world so you have no right to disrespect her in any way.

10 Reasons Why Some People Are Just Born To Travel

I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep…

The need for Marco Polo and Columbus to discover and travel the world stems from the love of wonder. Wanderlust as they called is an actually phenomena. Come to think of it nomads were also travellers who moved constantly from one place to another in search of the next best place. Aren’t we travellers in this world, some more than others making our paths in what we call life?

My mother often calls my love for travelling as the restless gene syndrome and frankly I quite agree with her on it. For someone who is bitten by the traveling bug you are hooked for life. From time immemorial Earth has been inhabited by two kinds of people: settlers and travelers. Here are some reasons why I feel some people are just born to travel the world.

1. Exploration
The seed for exploration quite frankly helped the world become what it is today. Imagine if the Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan had listened to what the great thinkers and philosophers of 16th century had said and didn’t decide to find out on his own what the world would be! If it weren’t for him people would still believe that the world was flat and traveling beyond a certain point would make you fall off into the great abyss. Even today I believe that the people who travel are the explorers.tumblr_mjhhpmk19o1s6ct2eo1_500

2. To seek greater knowledge
If you take the time out, you will find out that there have been many people throughout history who had the spirit of adventure and decided to explore the unknown. Their thirst for knowledge lead them to discover new things and places. In some cases, they risked their lives to make their contributions recognized by the world.

tumblr_nedhfeOjoO1sfky1xo1_500

3. See the unexpected
The explorers you’re grown up reading about were unlike normal people and this is not just because of the distances they managed to travel but surely because of the courage and intelligence that helped them to travel incredible distances and survive and discover the unknown.tumblr_mgh63y0mFS1riae2mo1_500

4. For adventure
Our humdrum life gets boring after a while and more often than not it seems like you are stuck in a rut. The need for adventure is an intrinsic part of some people’s life. And what better way to satiate this need than by travelling. After all who will fondly recall a trip to office? Instead a sky-diving trip in Dubai or snorkelling in Maldives you get a feel for what being an active human being is like (again).diving-gif

5. Because they don’t know better
Even though the ancient scholar Eratosthenes had managed to correctly calculate the circumference of world nearly about 1800 years ago, he couldn’t really prove it. If only Eratosthenes knew better. So why sit in once place why not travel and get answers to questions that have plagued you for a long time.driving-

6. Life for them is on the go
Have you ever wondered why some people like to travel more than others? Scientists say that it is cause of their gene pool which leads them to travel and exploration. For them life isn’t in one place alone, life lies in the adventure of the conquest. And that is exactly how humans populated the entire Earth. Believe it or not, there is a primeval force inside some of us that pushes us to do so. anigif_cars-2058-1303503907-11

7. Learn who they are
Not everyone knows all the answers. They say everyone born is born to serve a purpose and until you find, it per say your life is not fruitful. So the logically assumption is that some people actually came into this world to travel. Travelling will help you to become a well-rounded human being. It will throw challenges and opportunities on your face and let’s you discover who you are in a way that only the road brings.hammock-GIF

8. Perspective and memories
Meeting new people and learning from exotic cultures will teach you that the way you look at the world is not the way everybody does it. That you could in fact be dead wrong about everything till date. Travelling will give you a new perspective in life. And while you do so you will make memories on these mini adventures and they will help prove to yourself that you can and this sense of accomplishment will change your life like never before.giphy-2dfdg

9. Meet new people
Everyone you meet has their own story, take timeout and find out what it is. New places, new stories, new cultures all of this is what your soul craves for. For there is a world that you haven’t seen and discovered yet, but it is definitely calling onto you.giphy-2scsc

10. Just for the hell of it
Last but not the least if you still don’t get why some people are born to travel then let me just say, they do so, because you can….tumblr_ml04q2c0ID1rf5vsao1_500
