Being a woman in India – It is not all that bad! 2

We all are aware of the challenges an Indian woman faces on a day-to-day basis- assaults, security, arranged marriages, women rights, pride-shattering experiences and the list is never ending but I refuse to accept that with the disadvantages there are no advantages. Personally,  I think that there are a lot of perks of being an Indian woman.

Here are a few perks of being an Indian woman:

24*7 help

If you are a woman, even if you are a strong independent woman who is completely capable of taking care of themselves, you still are provided with help on an urgent basis, no matter what!

Reservations

Metro coaches, general seats, seats in colleges, different wards, and it is everywhere. Even during the demonetization period, women line was different and SHORTER.

Priorities

Always on priority one. If there is a line with all guys in it but two girls, they will make a separate girls line. In the mess, if you are the second last person and there is only one rasgulla left, the mess guy and the guy standing in front of you will both offer you the last one. Yes, it is an etiquette but have you ever wondered why is it there amongst the people in general, because they have been raised to treat you special than they are (for all the feminists out there… special and not low).

Extra security

You always have extra security, please do not start with why needed that in the first place. Whatever the reason might be, you have someone to pick up and drop you every time, anywhere and your convenience is a never ending project.

Soft corner

Everywhere and anywhere you go, people treat you with a tender heart. Be it a bank queue, ATM queue, college library, billing counters, in weddings, at home, at work place etc etc…. Don’t you enjoy these benefits?

Free drinks

Two words: ladies night.

Skip legal obligations with a smile

Raise your hand if you were ever caught breaking a rule on the road and you smiled and said “sorry bhaiya” and got away with it. **raises hand**

Cheap clothes and accessories

Sarojini haul gals, c’mon. So whenever I go to Sarojini and come back with bags full of clothes, my guy friends always, always and without fail tell me that how lucky girls are since they are able to get cheap good stuff but there is no such market as such for guys.

Minority is a boon

Because you get to have all the points I said above. 😛

I am not saying that the world is fair to a woman, I am not discussing if it is or if it is not. All I am trying to say is that it’s easy to focus on things we do not have or things which are wrong. Yes, we should try and bring a change there but with that, one should not forget to appreciate what we have with us. All the good things.

Cheers to being a woman!!!

Dating is cooler than a Relationship….Do you think so?? 1036

I am 101 % every one of you is going to agree with me on this – Dating is quite fun!! As it involves meeting new people, exploring new places with your gf/bf, the excitement of a new bond, those butterflies in the stomach. But during all this, somewhere deep down lays a sense of insecurity. Insecurity of losing your special someone because dating is not synonyms to the relationship. Where relationships have the commitment, dating doesn’t follow any such decree.

One of the most significant reasons that make dating cooler than relationships is commitment. It’s not easy to not make a connection and still be together. Many people think that settling down or being in a relationship can be boring, actually, they consider it as ‘Old school’. But you know what, if you never come under this league, perhaps, you will never experience the beauty of being in a relationship.

Relationships are not meant to be boring! In fact, being in a relationship makes your life beautiful and evolves you into a better individual.

Below are few reasons that’ll make you wonder how being in a relationship makes you a better person!

  1. A Relationship Rejuvenates You

Love is a very powerful feeling it makes us do things for others which we wouldn’t do for ourselves. A relationship changes you in a better person, your partner brings out the best in you. With your partner’s love and affection, they turn you into a better individual. Being in a relationship fills you with new hopes and aspirations.

  1. It changes your Attitude towards life

When single we usually only think about ourselves, act stubborn and resentful towards people and situations. But being in a relationship makes us think rationally and lowers down our ego and arrogance. It also invokes the sense of responsibility and a better understanding of life which we generally lack.

  1. You Start Feeling Good

The best part of being in a relationship is you start feeling happy and good about everything around. There is no space for stress or reasons to be depressed as two of you are always there to support each other and work towards the happiness of one another. Here, I would like to mention that this is the case of positive relations which are not forced.

  1. You Learn to Adjust

Every relationship demands adjustment, compromise, and sharing. When you get involved with someone the first thing which happens is you start adjusting according to your partners likes and dislikes. Slowly you start sharing your living space, you start making plans together and what not. being in a relationship teaches you how to express your love and care and how to keep your partners needs first.

  1. You Explore new things

The plus point of being in a relationship is your world expands, by this I mean you get to know about new things from you from a partner. You develop new likes and hobbies. You get exposed to a different kind of music, movies and if you both like reading then, books too ;). You also get a brand-new family and set of friends and cousins to hang out with.

  1. You feel Strong

Difficulties are part of life, we all face ups and downs, difficult situations in our lives. But having a partner by your side gives you the strength to fight any battle of life. Knowing that your partner has your back will give you the courage to go through any circumstances and come out with more positivity and belief that with that your partners help you can fight anything and everything

All relationships go through hell, only the real ones get through It …So, no matter how many girls or boys you have dated, there’ll come a time when you’ll realize the meaning of settling down with that special someone!

What Nirbhaya wants to appeal today for Praduman!! 4543

They ripped my body…

They ripped my dignity…..

They ripped my dreams…..

They ripped my life…………..and they are still alive…!!

If you remember me I am Nirbhaya, a girl who was brutally raped and left to die on 16th December’12’s night. I know it’s an old story now but I am here today because my soul is in pain and tormented once again…

I am suffocated, flustered and frightened too with news of Praduman brutally murdered and a little girl of 5yrs raped in their respective schools with in three days. My intestines were pulled outside my body and his throat was slit wide open….Oh Gosh!! You can’t imagine the pain and fear….Dictionary doesn’t and cannot have a word to describe what we went through..!

Okay, you said I was out for a movie at night… I was wrong and it was my mistake etc etc but I want to ask you today was Praduman also wrong in using a washroom of his school?? Was that little girl in a school uniform was wrongly dressed and out at a wrong time??

Please answer me……this goes to all those who are sitting on administrative chairs and are just concerned about how to remain seated on those positions forever. My question is to the lawmakers, to the ministers, to the officers….to the PM of this country.

Why can’t you frighten these monsters these devils like they frightened us? Me, Praduman…..&…&…

Yes, they frightened us to the extent that our souls are still trembling. Traumatize them…torture them as they did to us.

Where are you, the honorable human rights people?? Why don’t you stand with my and their and each such parent who has lost everything in their lives with us?

When you say ‘Human Rights’ its is for humans not for these demons. NO rapists have human rights…..

Give tortures ..give them trauma to the extent that each man with such sick mentality should get a shiver before even thinking of any such crime. Scare their souls…scare them to the hell…Do it NOW..NOW!

You named me…Nirbhaya(one who never fears)…let me tell you today…I was scared..really scared and I am scared today also. I am scared for each fellow girl…for each child out there…I am scared!

You made me celebrity over night. You named funds after me. No need of all this, if you really want to do something make your laws strict & deadly for rapists and molesters. No one should dare to touch anybody without his/her consent. Make my country safe for all women…for little ones. PLEASE!

Do what Yemen administration did to a child rapist and murderer. Punish them publicly…punish them as brutally as they were with us. It is my last appeal to you people.

Do it for me…for Praduman..for….for….

Do it so that there will be no more Nirbhayas and Pradumans…EVER!
