Beat her black and blue!

Don’t worry, I checked my privilege.

Being the “Raja beta” of any government official comes with much privileges and immunities. I think those very privileges can get you out of a gas chamber and those very those immunities can make you abuse the privileges.

The guy of the hour, Rohit Tomar, who was seen in a video that thankfully went viral, is the son of a Delhi Police officer, Ashok Singh Tomar. Rohit seemed more joyful than the man biting cobra in Rajasthan, to brutally beat up the girl in the video while one of his pure and pious friends pompously recorded the incident. The woman in question is the 21-year-old woman and had recently started working at the BPO.

Being the son of a policeman must have taught him the art of throwing himself at the ground and miss. Because, fuck gravity.

The woman was beaten up for a very simple reason. She wanted to file a complaint against the glorious man who couldn’t keep it in his pants. Rape. That’s good enough for a reason to thrash her black and blue and fly like a feather after the incident.

The cool guy apparently had sent the “exemplary” video to intimidate and threaten his girlfriend that she will meet the same consequences if she did not obey him. Are you feeling the same way I feel? What do we call the amalgamation of shock, disgust and anger?

Thankfully, Rohit along with his friends have been arrested after the girlfriend herself reported this horrifying case to the police.

Becoming aware of your privilege should not be viewed as a burden or source of guilt, rather an opportunity to learn and be responsible so that we work towards a more just and inclusive world.

SOMEONE SOMEWHERE

7-Important-Questions-to-Help-You-Figure-Out-What-You-Really-Want

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” ~ Socrates

Figure out What You Really Want in Life

There are some questions that you can’t stand to hear, much less answer. I totally get it. In the process of writing this, I re-asked myself these same questions, and I’m not going to lie, they were tough to even ask, let alone answer but by the end of this, you will feel such a strong sense of clarity and relief by having done it.

Here are 7 important questions that are meant to help you figure out what you really want in life.

1. Who am I?

This is by far the most important question you can ever ask yourself and if you walk away with any nugget of knowledge or powerful insight, let it be this: get to know yourself because you can’t go anywhere without knowing where you are right now…

In that case, as a proud Indian, am really scared of that repetition of an era, which had given a huge blow into the otherwise cherishing economy. But this worrisome can be stifled by learning about our past, the history about our beautiful nation, pre and post independent states. It is our duty to understand history and this book helps us to fill that vacuum.

91Tu6fhpR6L.jpgHistory always fascinates me. I got an opportunity to youtube a speech delivered by Shashi Tharoor at The Oxford Union society. That triggered me to read his works. I am so glad that I picked ‘An Era Of Darkness’, this is the very first book I read from his works, a brilliant account of our nation, with stunning facts. During the childhood days, I remember one of the debates being conducted, The Merits and Demerits of British rule in India. I was bought into the…

“Virushka” Wedding Hype!

India is the biggest democracy and Indians are obsessed with cricket, hypercritical politics, and Bollywood but presently the news that is hogging the limelight is the wedding of Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood celebrity Anushka Sharma that ultimately took place far away from India in picturesque Italy.

Indian media armed itself with the best quality artilleries on the D-day to breach the Manyavar couple’s ceremony but failed miserably. You can almost see how desperately the media scrambled for a story, and it’s almost sad how far they have to stretch the little they know of the story. It was only the newlywed couple (Virushka, apparently it’s a thing now!) who broke the information through sharing photographs of the rite on social media. Virushka cannily starved the media of the usual juicy details it loves to make a spectacle of.

The photos are too perfect, the light too dreamy, the outfits too beautifully Sabyasachi. Even the bits of elegant Tuscan-yellow stone we can see in the background of the few Virushka pictures we have just trigger memories of millions of Instagram pictures from all one hundred Kardashians at Kim and Kanye’s Italian wedding. It all looks like a beautiful picture I’ve seen in a book before, and maybe I have, in a fashion magazine about a celebrity wedding somewhere. And this time, the media couldn’t even jump in and spoil it all.

Virushka

Thanks to Sabyasachi’s constant tweeting, we found out that the bride and groom were wearing all Sabyasachi on all days to all functions, from Anushka’s jewelry to Virat’s signature khadi kurta. This simply meant that they looked exactly like a page from any Sabyasachi collection catalog ever published, with Anushka even opting for the brand’s signature “micro-dot bindi”. It’s the most familiar wedding aesthetic in the world.

The world went berserk. Like really berserk. Girls and boys were genuinely heartbroken as if they would’ve married Virat and Anushka at some point in time. Heights of egocentric deception. Feeds were clogged with their wedding’s finest details as well as highlights for social media caters well to its target audience. The audience is obsessed with anything related to celebs. We (you) look up to celebs in major aspects of our (your) lives, be it clothing, makeup, relationships and whatnot! They are our (your) idols and if they don’t live up to our (your) expectations at times, lose a few matches or score less on the box office then we (you) are entitled to bash them too. That’s just how heartwarming we Indians are!

Congratulations to whoever gets married but frankly, news of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s wedding made everyone smile and provided a beautiful distraction, if only for a while. The hours of relief was provided from going on and on about how the political and religious view is the only way to live by inexhaustibles.

India might preach about embracing feminism, but deep down we are still a very sexist, patriarchal and misogynistic society and would not tolerate a woman achieving success on the world stage. For example, Anushka was brutally trolled for Virat Kohli’s failure in the 2015 World Cup semi-final against Australia at Sydney and it left a pretty big scar on Anushka and Kohli had to take a public stand to address the issue.

The wedding is a private affair between the two people and can not and should not be meddled with. But, hold your fire for the wedding reception on 22th and Media’s reactions to it as obsession is akin to insanity.

Long live equality and diversity!

O! Take thou art of
Charming the world in my absence!
yet,
Cut off from my love and balance.

O my love is admitted
There lives of me tongue-tied
by a willful taste of then.

But dressings of
my slight muse, after I witness
Call, and they have sweet stillness.

Whoever hath taken.
Look cutting errors in her
Still with frost, and purest.

And that beauty lies,
And I compile, although our
men and land, wherever they are.
