The Farce that was #MeToo

And so the farce of #MeToo ended in a whimper. And we can be feminists about this and say , ‘well at least stories were told.’.. but to be realists- what good did that do any way?! Stories were told, sordid details shared and every newspaper (even the serious ones) became gossip rags proudly sharingContinue reading “The Farce that was #MeToo”

The Exhaustion of Being

  So over a dinner with friends the other evening, it seemed like everyone was suffering the same malady… ‘I’m exhausted!’… ‘Done by 9!’….’Cant’t get out!

A Little Respect!

We’re pushed around. We’re passed over. We change who we are, change what we want to be. And we blame everyone around us for the situations we are in.

But busy achieving what? We spend less time with family and friends. We are divided between dutiesContinue reading “No time? Why?”

Fear-: to be afraid or to be apprehensive When we are little we fear almost nothing. We find fire funny. We play with strays. We roll in the mud. We twist our parents ( big and fearful to others) around our little , tiny fingers and we don’t know defeat. We ask like we deserveContinue reading “Fear ≠ Change”

Take a Chance on Change!

To start over…something must end. To say hello… sometimes we have to say goodbye.To laugh again…sometimes we need to have cried! Divya Palat  It’s so hard when things are over when we just keep holding on! I realised this when I produced my first set of shows and the run was complete and as everyoneContinue reading “Take a Chance on Change!”

A comment

Courtesy- Times of India Celebrity Blogs (Divya Palat’s Blog) They tell us in school ‘History repeats itself,’ and we keep wondering if that actually were the case, why would people be so stupid and keep doing horrible things especially if the effects were documented in the past. Man must not be too smart though becauseContinue reading “A comment”
