What Book Lovers ACTUALLY Mean When They Say These 10 Things (...)

Because there's more (almost, always) to what they are saying.

Do you have friends who love reading and at the same time always find excuses to stay at home? For starters, this is a very common phenomenon, as reading can be a bit of a solitary activity. Most book lovers spend hours upon hours in bed, or at home, buried deep in the fictional realm. And while that may seem abnormal to others, it is their way of relaxing and rejuvenating in life. Some people might not get it but for hardcore readers, books aren't just an activity or a hobby. Books are a way of life! And here's a small guide to decoding the bookworm in your life: Things they say and what they (we) really mean.

Self Love Doesn't Come Easy, But It's Worth Every Effort

All good things come to those who try.

Self love.

Two words. And so much to unfold within them.

You probably find these two words plastered all across the internet, in motivational paragraphs and inspirational quotes. You've probably come across several articles on all the wonderful ways to go about loving yourself. In fact, I know I've written quite a few myself.

Perhaps you're someone who doesn't quite understand what the whole hullabaloo about self love is, and see it as yet another hipster trend millenials just go on about. Or perhaps you're someone who has taken the time and patience to master it, and now devote a good amount of your time in making sure you find new ways to love yourself.

From A Modern Woman: Here's What Feminism Means To Me, Baba

And here's why we all need it.

This is from a conversation I had with my Baba, very recently:

"You're getting to travel and go all solo in life only because I have allowed you to. You will face a tough time with your future husband. He will not tolerate you vagabonding around." While I know this unreasonable monologue has an air of concern slyly hidden in it, I also know that it is representing a very common mindset that women are victims of. I, and many like me, have been strong survivors too though, maybe because our blood reeks of rebellion. But excuse me, since when have we been 'ALLOWED' to venture into things that render some happiness?

13 Movies That Will Give You All The FEELS In A 'Not So Romantic Way'

Because...romance is 'somewhat' overrated.

We all have different definitions of love and some of us don't actually believe in mushy romance. As much as we want to, there's no way that we can actually adapt to the 'good old' romantic stuff. If we honestly think about it and dig a little deeper, these unrealistic couple goals have shattered our real life dreams. It's because love stories don't always have to be about big declarations of love and impractical gestures.

If Overthinking Has Ever Stopped You From Admiring Life, This Art Is For You

The beauty in the little things we overlook.

It is a wonderful thing to be self-aware, to have an understanding of who we are and what we believe in. But sometimes, as we lose ourselves in an analysis of our every word and action, it becomes hard to tell where our thoughts of self-awareness devolve into self-criticism. And self-criticism is one hell of a slippery slope.

Artist María Sanoja found herself so absorbed in her self-critical thoughts one day that it led her to realise just how much she misses out on all the beauty around her. And that led her to create the project 100daysofoverthinking, whereby she draws wonderful illustrations of all the mundane yet beautiful things around her with a question or thought that didn't let her enjoy the moment she was in. And honestly, if you're as prone to bouts of overthinking as I am, this project will hit home hard.

5 Films You Need To Watch If You Are Looking To Understand LGBTQ Culture

KJo films can portray terrible caricatures but these are real people with real personalities.

https://bit.ly/2ucC5mT

Popular narrative is fashioned by terrible portrayal of gay men in KJo movies (Hello, Dostana, Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna) and rehashed versions of old handmaids tales that may or may not have any grounding in truth or science. Effeminate men or manly women have faced regular ridicule owing to their behavioural tendencies that do not fit traditional gender roles; the trauma victims of the LGBTQ spectrum face in real life has been worse.

Between all of this, there are some gems created by celebrated writers and directors of our times to shine a light on misconceptions and slay them all, one film at a time. Here are 5 movies you need to watch if you are a straight person curious about members of the Pride or a queer person struggling to come to terms with your sexuality:

We have our own ideas of the ideal life. That's good, healthy even. It is the right thing to do - work towards what your heart finds peace in. Try to reach a place in life where you're proud of what you've done and the life you lead. Again, there are expectations with everything, even when it comes to love. We all want that perfect person to spend the rest of our lives with, but for most of our parents, that decision was in their parents hands.

Jasmine Khurana's honest slam poetry about her #ArrangedLove is insightful, raw, and extremely cute. The simplicity of it will touch your heart. You might not connect with her emotions, but you sure as hell will feel them. Her eyes sparkle with honesty as she lays bare the naked photo of an arranged love, of compromises, of stepping back to let someone step in - and not regretting it.

15 Instances Of Cross-Dressing In Bollywood That We Indians Celebrated & Loved

Famous characters that made cross-dressing history in India and nobody was offended. Double win!

https://bit.ly/2NcGFJ8

Human societies have had gendered dress codes since the beginning of dressing up but humans have also cross-dressed since centuries for different reasons. Historically, cross-dressing didn't mean a slur and was used to disguise people, ensure comfort and sometimes, self-discovery. Cross-dressing often fuels images of deviant sexualities and lifestyles in the minds of a populace fueled by politics and religion. Never mind the hordes of Bollywood characters we have laughed at/with, applauded, cried with for not just cross-dressing but displaying characteristics opposite to the ones assigned to their gender via our social constructs. The portrayal may be faulty, but here are Bollywood's greatest cross-dressing acts that have been hits with masses of every sexual orientation:
