        Shadow

        THIS IS THE ONE....
        A MAN’S WORLD

        IS IT REALLY SO….? IS A QUESTION THAT REMAINS UNANSWERED ……?


        THE RECENT CASE WHICH I READ AMUSED ME TO NO END. AS A STARTER IT WAS CAUTIOUSLY ANACHRONIC. THE CASE WHICH IS IN CONCERN IS INVOLVING THE EMPLOYEE OF A POPULAR FIRM ACCUSING HER SENIOR OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT. IT MADE ME THINK OVER MY RELUCTANCE TO AGREE THE DOMINANCE OF THE FAIRER SEX.
        I HAD TO COME OUT OF MY BOX TO GIVE THIS SERIOUS ISSUE A THOUGHT. IN OUR TOTALLY CONSERVATIVE INDIAN SOCIETY, WHERE ONE IS EXPECTED TO CONDUCT ONESELF WITH PROPRIETY, THIS ONE CAME AS A RUDE SHOCK.THE WOMAN IN QUESTION, WHO WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER EMPLOYER FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS GOT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT IT ONLY WHEN SHE REALISED HER NEED WAS NOT GOING TO BE ATTENDED. BE IT IN THE CORPORATE WORLD, MEDIA, FASHION OR THE PAGE 3 BIZ, THEY ALL GO THROUGH A SEXUALLY CHARGED ENVIRONMENT. IN THIS DEADLOCK SITUATION, WHERE JUST THE BLAMEGAME IS GOING ON; THE MATTER WHICH CONCERNS ME THE MOST, IS THE DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THE SO-CALLED “WEAKER SECTIONS” OF THE SOCIETY.
        IN MY OPINION, THE WOMAN INSPITE OF GIVING UP TO THE SALACIOUS DEMANDS OF HER SENIOR COULD HAVE EASILY SAID “NO” AND DISCONTINUED HER JOB.WE ALL AGREE THAT “NO” MEANS NO;BUT WE HAVE 2 EVEN ACCEPT THAT ”YES” MEANS “YES”. HER ONLY AFFIRMATIVE RESPONSE TO HER BOSS INTIMATE REQUEST HAD WORKED AGAINST HER. PROBABLY, THE WOMAN DIDN’T SEEM TO MIND AT ALL WHEN HER BOSS SHOWERED HER WITH EXPENSIVE GIFTS OR GETTING HIM DROP HER HOME AND EVEN IN THE MATTER OF CASUAL SEX.BUT SINCE HER PROMISES WERE NOT FULFILLED,SHE REBELLED AGAINST HER OWN PROFESSIONAL CUM PERSONAL PARTNER…
        SHE WAS DEFINITELY NOT A JUVENILE DELINQUENT WHO DID NOT KNOW WHERE HER ACTIONS WOULD END HER UP. THE EMPLOYER ON THE OTHER HAND, JUSTIFIED HIS ACTION ON THE BASIS OF A CONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIP.BEING FROM A NON-PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT, THIS GIVES ME A DOSE OR YOU CAN CALL IT AN INSIGHT OF WORKPLACE SEX ROMP.NOW IT IS TOTALLY UPON THE INDIVIDUAL TO GO AHEAD WITH THE ORDEAL OR JACK IT IN.
        THE SECOND INCIDENT WHICH AGAIN CAUGHT MY ATTENTION OVER THIS ISSUE WAS THE SUICIDE OF A FAMOUS 90’S MODEL.THE MODEL WHO WAS QUITE POPULAR IN THE LATE 90’S FOR HER KAMASUTRA CONDOM ADS RECENTLY COMMITED SUICIDE WHICH MADE HEADLINES IN ALL MOST EVERY NEWSPAPER AND NEWSCHANNEL.THE INVESTIGATION REVEALED SHE WAS ON ANTI-DEPRESSANT AND WAS HELDING HER STOCK-BROKER BOYFRIEND RESPONSIBLE FOR DRIVING HER TO TAKE SUCH EXTREME STEPS. LATER PROBE AND QUESTIONING CAME UP WITH A CONCLUSION THAT IT WAS A RESULT OF JAGGED EDGES OF A BROKEN RELATIONSHIP.THE LOW-PROFILE MODEL WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH HER PROFESSIONAL AS WELL HER PERSONAL LIFE.SEEMINGLY, NO MODELLING COMMITMENTS COMING HER WAY, THE ONLY WAY TO LEAD A ZESTFUL LIFE WAS TO GET MARRIED TO A FINANCIALLY STABLE PERSON WHO COULD PROVIDE HER WITH ALL THE LUXURIES SHE REQUIRED.PROBABLY, HER PARTNER DID NOT THINK THE SAME WAY AROUND AND DID NOT RELENT. THESE FURTHER MADE THE MODEL SUFFER FROM A BOUT OF DEPRESSION AND LETHARGY. A WEEK AFTER THE DEATH OF THE PROTAGONIST, HER BOYFRIEND WAS POTRAYED AS A FLAMBOYANT RASCAL WHO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS AND LEFT HER FOR THE WORSE.
        MY SYMPATHY DOES NOT LIE WITH MODEL’S BOYFRIEND. HE WAS THIS RICH SPOILT BRAT WHO TOOK PEOPLE AND THINGS FOR GRANTED.BUT WHAT ABTRUSE ME MORE IS THE UNWILLINGNESS OF THE SOCIETY TO ACCEPT THE FACT OF FAIRER SEX GETTING DOMINANCE. IT IS CLEARLY AN OBNOXIOUS FACT. HAVE ANYBODY EVER HEARD OF A WOMAN WHO IS HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR HER PARTNER’S DEATH AS SHE WAS NOT READY TO COMMIT TO HIM TO BE SEVERELY CONDEMNED BY THE SOCIETY?THE ANSWER FOR SURE IS A BIG ‘NO’.
        MY ONLY OBJECTIVE IN WRITING THIS PIECE OF MATERIAL IS TO ENCOURAGE WOMAN TO STAND UP AND OWN HER ACTION. BEING A PART OF FAIRER SEX, IT TOOK ME TIME TO DIGEST THAT TODAY’S WOMAN WHO IS SO MUCH CIVILIZED, MODERN AND RESPONSIBLE THAN PREVIOUSLY IS TRYING TO GAIN MASSES ATTENTION TO THEIR GRIEVANCES, CAUSED BY THEIR RESPECTIVE PARTNERS.ANYWAYS, WE HAVE BEEN THE FACE OF SOCIAL REFORM… DON’T YOU THINK WE SHOULD REMOVE THE TAG OF BEING A”WEAKER” SECTION IN THE SOCIETY? THE ANSWER IS QUITE PREDICTABLE……..
        ….RIGHT GIRLS!!!!!!!!

        Butter Chicken and Naan

        my mother started making a delicious butter chicken when she was in her 20's. She has a history of making yummy chicken curries so it was no surprise that the butter chicken would be just so. The chicken curries were and still are juicy, perfectly moist.Prior to the butter chicken, the curries were the typical brown color and, as in most Indian homes, she used chicken drumsticks. I don’t know the reason for the drumsticks, but I suspect the majority of chicken drumsticks in the world are being consumed by the subcontinent. The butter chicken recipe calls for cubed chicken breast.
        Also, if you’re dining out, butter chicken is known as chicken makhani in Indian restaurants. I’ve yet to eat bad butter chicken anywhere, but my mom’s is the best.

    • Documentary Making
      • A Deadly reality


        munch: the sick child

        Being a mass media student, making documentaries is like a ritual and a part of curriculum. The topic for the documentary was Thalassemia for which we had to conduct a detailed study and research on the disease. one on one conversation is a vital core of all the documentaries. we spoke to the patients as well as their families.Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anemia.Treatment for thalassemia major often involves regular blood transfusions and folate supplements.If you receive blood transfusions, you should not take iron supplements. Doing so can cause a high amount of iron to build up in the body, which can be harmful.Persons who receive significant numbers of blood transfusions need a treatment called chelation therapy to remove excess iron from the body.A bone marrow transplant may help treat the disease in some patients, especially children.most of the people are unaware of this deadly disease. so educating the people about it is a must.

        Teachers can leave an lasting effect on our minds. I met a good soul in my seventh grade.in her early fifties,she was active than people half her age. I remember an incident ,wherein, I was facing a problem most of the girls face when they enter puberty. I had lost confidence in myself. It was difficult coping academics along with insecurities building up in me.she helped mebuildmyself all over again. She left the school a year after, but still so fresh in my memories. :)
