The Longest Birthday Ever

Every year, my mother’s birthday is the longest ever. Why? coz she was born on IMG_1522the 21st of June that’s why! This year, my sister decided she would make something for my mother as a gift. So she came up with this:

It was really difficult to sneak away from home and get everything together but through sheer lying, we finally managed to get it framed. It did pay off in the end; my mother could not have been more surprised!  And best of all, I caught the entire episode on video :).


What with the laptop giving up on me and having to be repaired, plus a couple of exams and what not, I’ve barely been able to catch my breath, let alone up with my blog.Next up – last date for Central bank is tomorrow and I’ve yet to take out the draft.

One of the hot button topics right now in Indian media is the safety of women – or rather how our country doesn't really care about half its population. From rape, sexual assault, harassment (in streets, public transport, nearly every public place) to violence perpetrated on women, Indians are finally getting around to discussing taboo topics.
One refrain that caught my eye throughout these debates – both online and off – is the fact that the reaction of the majority of Indians is the same: girls should stay at home, not go out after dark, dress appropriately and so on if they want to stay safe. No one seems to bat an eyelid when laying down these precautions for women. Except that the reality is women would be far safer if all the men simply DID NOT RAPE or HARASS any person that looks remotely female. No one has to stay at home and become a hermit! That got me thinking further. F…
