Imitation Is Not Flattery

…it’s a threat!

I watching a TV show where a character is bothered by another girl who borrows her clothes, tries to get in with her friends and finally, copies her hairstyle. I know most men will see this as typical teen queen drama. It reminded me of two incidents from my life and I realized why it’s not.

Saadgi: The Indian Plain Jane Ideal

Why India likes its women unpainted, unadorned and vanity-free

Western feminism talks about the infantalisation of women. Childish behaviour is rewarded, glorified and in some cases, forcibly attributed too. I think the Indian counterpart is a bit different — but there is an Indian counterpart. The Indian culture, across…

Someday Doesn’t Exist

Someday I’ll do this. Someday I’ll do that. Guess what? Death comes quicker than SOMEDAY. Someday is the best friend of Excuse-Makers.

Titles Are Bullshit

Millionaire Mastermind (Part 16)

Just because someone has a title it doesn’t mean that they are more important than you. Most of the time these people lack integrity. They’ll talk a good talk but they don’t walk a good walk. They’ll connive and find ways to get ahead. Often without care for who they trample over. Now don’t get it twisted there…
