Taapsee Pannu is everyone's favvv. After her heart-wrenching performance in 'Pink', we knew the girl was here for ALL the right reasons. Which is why you shouldn't question the fact that Kapil Verma's new short film 'Nitishastra' is what you need to watch...right now.

It somehow falls in the fate of every woman to grow up being instructed by the world around her. Instructed, in little sinister ways, to be quieter, smaller, weaker than she is. But the modern woman is in no mood to listen.

So recently, I've been lucky enough to come across a LOT of amazing artists - courtesy the Uncover project. And most recently, I was introduced to the stunning art of Anjali Mehta. Now, what made Anjali's work stand out for me was the fact that it's basically, well, everything I've ever felt. Her illustrations are brave, bright, and honest. I suppose that's because she takes so much inspiration from the world around her...and from the words around her.

Sustainable Periods - Why Exactly Is The Cup Mightier Than The Pad?

A complete step-by-step breakdown of why you must make the switch NOW!

The menstrual cup has been around for quite a while, but hasn't been widely excepted all around because of cultural reasons specific to different regions in our country.

I'm going to be a little not-so-subtle about this because honestly, A LOT of you need to hear it. We are all so obsessed with finding the 'good life' or doing whatever-the-hell we want that we end up losing focus on what the point really is. I mean, when was the last time you felt good about something you created? When was the last time you felt fired up with passion? When was the last time you helped someone? Don't remember?

There are moments in life that leave you feeling completely and utterly broken. You know, moments when you feel like you're walking on broken glass, like every step is fragile and painful. And then there are moments where you feel lighter than a feather, wrapped up in love and happiness. The brokenness you live through to get to the happiness - that, my friend, is survival. And I never quite understood that until I came across Caroline White's poetry. See, Caroline lived through depression and went on to turn it into art; into words that speak to people across countries. And if you ever feel like life isn't going to get better - let her words serve as a gentle reminder that sooner or later, you will be more than just okay.

Ah, what would I do without poetry? It has rightfully been called the food for the soul. Some words move me. Some make me giggle. And then there are some, that make me think about how unfair I can be..to myself.

I Don't Want Children And That Doesn't Make Me Any Less Of A Woman

"Motherhood" does not define who I am.

Ever since I became aware of my gender (that would be when I was around 5-6 years old), I knew being a woman came with a lot of *conditions attached*. First up, the general preference of boys over girls was something you just had to deal with.Secondly, you were labeled "paraya dhan" and were to be given to a pretty/ugly boy in marriage, whichever one your karma deemed fit for you. Thirdly, you were to have babies, whether you wanted them or not, let alone if you even liked them in the first place.

Cecile Dormeau will have my eternal respect for the absolute raw, brutal and unabashed illustrations that she makes on womanhood. From addressing problems like the shame associated with period stains, to portraying real women to be in-charge of their own sexual well-being, her drawings will make you laugh and applaud.
