Why the word feminist?

I wrote about how “We should all be feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was one of my favorite reads of this year. I was planning to write a review of that book but somehow could not. I am pasting here my most favorite lines from that book where she explains why we need the word “feminist”…

Quotes challenge

Destination Infinity tagged me for this challenge long back. So long back that he must have forgotten about the challenge altogether :P. Thank you for tagging me DI. I had started this post back in July, more than a month back but forgot about it altogether. Today I was looking at my drafts and realized…

One and only child

“First children tend to be a choice parents make to fulfill their own lives and a second child tends to be a choice parents make to fulfill the life of their existing child.” – from book “One and Only” by Lauren Sandler. Ever since I became pregnant with my baby, people have been advising me…

Sidney Poitier

My dad keeps recommending me movies from 1970s/60s which he enjoyed watching when he was in college/school. There were two movies that came highly recommended from him.

In the beginning, they have tried to cover every scene possible and all the romantic scenes but later on, the movie gets really bad.. I mean, I know you cannot cover everything in the book in just two…

Quotes from ‘The Alchemist’

I dont usually like reading motivational books but I read Alchemist (long back, not now) and I really liked it!! Some of my friends tried reading it, but found it very boring.. Initially, when you start reading such books, you feel they are boring or dragging the story but once you finish reading such a…
