Women and Careers

I went to watch Mission Mangal two days back. This was a huge deal for me because A) I haven’t been to a theatre since the day Z was born and B) please see point A. So, I really didn’t care which movie I was watching or which theatre I was watching it at…I was…

Writing Tropes

I just finished reading Sally Thorne’s The Hating Game and yes, I know, I’m really late to this party but what a truly lovely book it is! Fun, warm and real. It had some bits that didn’t quite work for me but I’m not here to do a book review. I’m here to talk about…

Choices

The never-ending questions!

“You married a Christian? Have you ever wondered what any children you have would be?” I have to say this one stumped me.
