What is Appropriate Makeup?

Appropriate Makeup

What is Appropriate Makeup? I always get miffed by people who judge women based on their choice to wear makeup or not. The feminist in me says that every woman should be allowed to do what she wants.

That is why I want to talk about Appropriate Makeup today.…

Roles Women Play – Career Woman #WomensDay

Roles Women Play Career Woman

In my second post on the Roles Women Play, I want to talk about the role of a career woman. I have shared my thoughts about women at work during the A2Z blogging challenge of professional life.

#KarwaChauth… Regression or Choice?

KarwaChauth

From the last few years Indian social media and even mainstream media sometimes goes crazy every October. The reason… the big KC. KarwaChauth…. Those who call it regressive, do not understand that celebrating festivals and observing fasts is about the sentiment and the gesture. All festivals are symbolic then why the big hullabaloo for KarwaChauth alone? Why do people light lamps, keep doors open and pray to Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali? Are you really expecting a gold laden woman in…
