Ever since my childhood I could never keep friends. I didn’t understand girls most of all. Fighting for petty reasons was beyond me and so I could never keep up.
My colleague recently wrote a story showing how friendships among girls are harder to keep than those between boys. But why is that? This is not how it should be right?
When Lilly Singh aka Superwoman came up with her campaign (more of a movement), Girl Love, I couldn’t help but stand by it. Why is it that we fail to support another woman in her endeavours and celebrate her success?
A part of being today’s woman, a modern woman, is to not only believe in yourself but also others. Inspiring young girls and standing by your female friends. Even the word jealousy should be out of our goddamn dictionaries! We should know that alone, by ourselves, what ever we may do, it will never be enough. It will not be visible. It is only when we stand together, stand united, can we make a difference.
So please get rid of all your hate and insecurities and see what’s beyond. Be the modern woman.
With today’s story I wanted to depict the artist, the lover, the writer and the reader. She who lives in a cocoon full of characters that come from the books she reads or her own wild imagination. A lover of animals, she drops a tear at the sight of a shivering dog.
For when she loves, she loves for once and for all!
Brand in focus: Orunie by Vasundhara Sharma
I love lady entrepreneurs. They make me feel strong. Before I met Vasundhara, I thought she must be just another brand owner. She changed my mind with her strong concepts and reasoning! Her work, her creations, they’re all, a part of her. All the bags and art she sells is not just beautiful but extremely functional, keeping in mind the kind of lives we live today!
From the pretty designs, to the smallest little pocket, everything has been all thought of and that’s what makes all the difference!
