Depression with a twist!

Before you start reading, I would like to clarify that this is not another article on what is depression or how dangerous it is or what are its symptoms and what to do to get out of it. This article is about how not to fall into the deadly pit of depression in the first place. Since digging a well when there’s a fire won’t help if you hadn’t taken basic precautionary measures beforehand. After all, prevention is better than cure. Depression is no more a luxury that only a few people can afford to get. It’s now become...

Are you suffering from FOMO?

Fear of missing out, commonly known as FOMO, is a desire to stay continually connected with what others are doing. Since the start of mankind, we humans have been interacting. Be it as cavemen or the current developed state we are in, we are constantly in touch with people around us. And why not? It is the most important thing for survival.

We all watch superhero movies, shop for superhero products and the first thing that comes to our mind in a fancy dress competition is a superhero costume. Why just admire superheroes when you can be a superhero to someone in real life?

Yes, i am a woman and i bleed.

The past week on social media would have been quite surprising for all of you too. You suddenly saw people caring for the delicate, weak and “bechari” naari who has to pass out blood from her body every 28-30 days. Yes. I’m talking about the #padman challenge which has suddenly woken up people from their deep slumber. Stars from Akshay Kumar (Wait. It’s his movie after all) and Sonam Kapoor to Aamir Khan and Anil Kapoor have all been posing with a sanitary napkin on social media. Well, I hope they didn’t savagely throw it away and thoroughly wash their hands after the 1 min stunt. You would be thinking, “What’s wrong with this female? Why does she have a problem when the society is finally starting to change their mindset and help wipe out period taboos?” The stars are after all promoting health and hygiene. My only reply is that BOSS, I don’t have a problem with them doing this. I have a problem with the delay in doing this. Where were all these people sleeping when all these years women were secluded and treated like untouchables when on their monthly cycle? (Oh sorry. I forgot that a woman HAS to be untouchable in those days of the month) Come on people. Even female bats, elephants, dogs, horses, chimps and many other animals menstruate. But do you go...
