A Late Night Cab Ride in New Delhi

May 28, 2015

11

I am an Indian who has been living in the West for over four years. In the last few years, I have been as enraged as my fellow country folk at the gruesome rapes being reported one after the other. In 2012, I was as deeply anguished, shocked and helpless as the women in my […]

What I Received From Mentoring Young Girls

May 12, 2015

7

I am no stranger to the self-esteem issues faced by (young) women. I blogged about some of my personal experiences in my post, “Celebrating My Fat (Fabulous) Body” last year. I consider myself to be a confident, self-aware and strong person for the most part. My social work education and years of experience working in […]

B: Bitch! (Post 2: A-Z of Feminism)

April 14, 2015

2

I remember, while at TISS for my MSW, a classmate called me, “Bitch!”And I remember saying to her, “Don’t insult me! I’m not a bitch! I’m a super bitch!” When I hear the word “Bitch,” I don’t think of it negatively. The first thing that comes to mind is uncompromising, someone who stands her ground. […]

Between the ages of 26 and 30, I feel like I was in the prime of my personal confidence. I felt like I was someone. I had a worthy voice. I knew who I was and where I was going. Or so I believed. When I look back, I was fearless. I didn’t fear failure. […]

Something I Feel Strongly About

November 22, 2013

I began thinking about this post last night. I knew right away what I was going to write about. But I told myself I was being too quick to decide what I “feel strongly about”! Sid came home today and I asked him what he thought I should write about, and without batting an eyelid […]

On the Hijaab (Veil), Topless Jihad, etc.

April 15, 2013

20

Let’s be honest, whenever we think of a Muslim woman in a hijaab, we think of oppression or conditioning. We do not think of it being a personal choice and freedom. We think to ourselves how that woman was forced to wear it, or taught (read brainwashed) that she needs to wear it. My first interactions […]

What to do about P.M.S?

March 21, 2010

26

It amazes me that I am connected with over 400 women (directly, indirectly to say at least a 100,000?) on Facebook for more than 3 years now and I have yet to come across any post about PMS on their profiles. I have seen women bemoan their relationship woes rather openly. And I’ve seen some […]
