Life Rules: No Retreat, Repeat & Treat!

2016-09-15-01-31-04

I remember the time when I was a nerd. All geeky and introvert. Shy from people around and the fear of speaking would grab me like an icy wind breeze. I wasn’t exactly bullied, but ignored and avoided. My presence in school was always like that discarded piece of old project work; dusty, dull and uninteresting.

Life Rules: Love Thy Flaw ♥

Its past 3 am in the morning and I am madly tired and exhausted. And here I am writing a piece with sore eyes and pathetic dark circles underneath them. The reason for my endurance is the reason of my frustration and depression over many years. I am sure each one of you would have once in your life asked yourself, “Why the hell am I flawed? Why couldn’t god make me perfect?”

Life Rules: The Ambiguous Paradigm of My Work Life

adt_woman

Writing an article on a weekend is tough for numerous reasons; firstly the body, mind and soul are still at a snooze mode and secondly, the regular hindrances of life are missing during those two days. But on a sad note, Sunday is ending now and I am not at all ready to welcome Monday with open arms. There used to be a time when Mondays were just boring because the day meant going back to the boring everyday school or college work and studies. But now that I am a so called ‘Independent Working Woman’, the sacred day is supposedly the start of regular work place issues and confusions. Yes, you heard me right. I know most of the people do not take Mondays on such a negative note as I do. I am a qualified 21st century woman with an independent and ambitious mindset which automatically means I am supposed to be overjoyed by the thought of getting back to my workplace and performing in order to make my future brighter.   Continue reading “Life Rules: The Ambiguous Paradigm of My Work Life”

Women’s Day Special: Spread & Live the #LetsBeSeksi Tag!

10949758_874715062574423_5654539460888774968_n

To everyone out there celebrating Women’s Day: women don’t need just a day to celebrate themselves. Their eternal womanhood should be celebrated every single day; 24/7; 365 days a year. Being a woman is already tough in a world which thrives on the hypocrisy of the ‘ideal qualities of a woman’. Do not take me as a feminist; feminism is nature. Nature is everywhere. A word of hatred or an action of violence is what nature is not. Do we realize as human beings, the importance every moment of our life? Sadly, we don’t. As our 21st century lifestyle starts running with its fast pace, monotony and ignorance, the relevance of harmony and peace is at stake. Women’s Day is not a celebration in this world but just a subset of a timeline dedicated to the sex which is often regarded as the weak and the inferior. If women’s day is all about putting up statuses and suddenly realizing for a day how special the women in our life are, then that isn’t what ‘importance’ means. This isn’t going to be another article on women empowerment or exploitation of women. There is a need to celebrate what we are, not just for a day but each minute, each hour and each moment in our life. Our life is too short for us to be depressed, frustrated, angry or sad by things around us. I know it’s easier said than done but honestly; every girl, every lady and every woman lets sadness and people’s opinion affect them. I am no different. But remember, we all are in this TOGETHER. You are not alone. This happens to every individual out there. So this is why we need something to cheer us girls every day! Though it sounds more like a FMCG advertising campaign, but all I am saying is that girls you should know one thing for sure; YOU ARE AND SHOULD ALWAYS STAY A DREAMER. Dreams fires hopes and let us live. Do not be afraid to be yourself and think positive. Life isn’t easy. It never was and never should be. So accept what life is but live it the way you want. That is power. That is YOU. So this Women’s Day let us start something special.

Life Rules: Patricia Arquette Just Made a Rally cry for Women at the OSCARS

Love her.

After thanking a wide variety of people including her fellow nominees, her parents, and her boyfriend/”favorite painter” Eric White, Boyhoodstar and newly-anointed best supporting actress Oscar winner Patricia Arquette made a poignant rally cry for gender equality:

“TO EVERY WOMAN WHO GAVE BIRTH, TO EVERY TAXPAYER AND CITIZEN OF THIS NATION, WE HAVE FOUGHT FOR EVERYBODY ELSE’S EQUAL RIGHTS. IT’S OUR TIME TO HAVE WAGE EQUALITY ONCE AND FOR ALL, AND EQUAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

It might have been short and pithy but it was a sentiment that resonated with the women in the audience. And with that, the mother of two dropped the proverbial mic, waltzed off the stage, and left Meryl Streep and J.Lo to pick up the glistening bawse lady pieces.

Life Rules: Are we really a man’s responsibility?

10953866_796131467123754_3394997127927165729_n

Today was a beautiful morning. The sunshine was bright, the morning breeze was light and cool and I had a good breakfast with my friends. Coming back to my hostel room, me and my roommates who are my best buddies here sat down on the stairs for a little chitchat. What followed next to giggles and gossip was some dose of serious questions. One of my pals was angry over the fact that girls nowadays are just being miserable and sad by themselves. She thought some of them were self pitiful and spineless on some of the matters which are relevant. Don’t get her wrong. I supported her view saying that it is sad how a woman is a woman’s worst enemy when they need to be in harmony. The point of debate was when we had two different views on a picture that she saw on facebook. It was of a girl standing with a board in her hands saying “A woman alone is not a man’s opportunity but his responsibility.” She argued that she denied this because she thought the quote was wrong. A woman is not a man’s responsibility and should never be. She should be herself responsible for what is going on with her. To be honest I disagreed with her point straightaway. My point was that in our male dominated hypocrite society, women are disgraced and even if a woman is educated and independent, the society doesn’t treat her like that. I am not generalizing the fact on all men but majority men in our country view women as mere objects and treat them as sexual objects for their own mean needs. That is totally wrong. On the top of it I argued that the quote written was a very tiny one which projected a man’s responsibility, not the woman’s. My friend stated that still if a woman is independent why shouldn’t take her own responsibility and raise her voice on suffering through any harassment. After all if she doesn’t, we as women cannot expect the society to change overnight for our future generations who will continue to bear the weight themselves. I truly agreed on that one but added that for a woman who is even highly educated and liberal, taking a stand is difficult because she weighs the consequences in her mind. She just doesn’t think about herself, but her parents, her siblings, her partner. That is the reason why she doesn’t come out with a strong voice because she fears negative consequences on the people she loves and cares about. Also a man being responsible in that statement did not just imply that he should protect a woman; but that If a woman was alone, he had no right to see it as an opportunity to exploit his physical strength on her and on the contrary should just leave her alone and concentrate on his own business. Even though I am not a feminist in any sense, but my view is that why is it so difficult for a man to do just that much. The thing expected out of them is not a big deal; it’s the matter of being sober and live in harmony. So why all the violence and chaos? Isn’t life easier for them also if they lived it in a more sophisticated manner? But the sad truth is violence is seen as a mark of manhood; a symbol of strength and dominance a man has on a woman. I completely agree and support on my friend’s strong approach that a woman is not a responsibility of man; but of her own self, the citizens’ and the society’s. Raising a voice though unheard and negated is important because it brings change. She emphasized that the first woman to wear a colored cloth being a widow must have been through hell, but she did it not for herself but for her future generations to not go through the same thing. That is the reason we need not follow such archaic rules anymore. How more correct can that point be? I am sure almost 9 out of 10 women are harassed in some form or the other everyday. But the more we remain silent, the more we will become unheard. So it is important to rise up, raise voices when something wrong is being done to you just because you are vulnerable as a woman; because it is not about equality but about equity. Women empowerment is something that is internal to us as women. We choose it not anyone else. Because we take our decisions and we should be the decision makers for ourselves no matter how hard it is. Our bodies are not our liabilities, but assets. Every woman is powerful in her own way. Women are better decision makers and can go miles if they will to. Hence rise up ladies. You are awesome in your way. Never stay silent. We can be as strong when we fight as we are when we love and care. Be awesome. Be strong. Be YOU.

XOXO,

Shwetz
