It is easy to tempt anyone on diet to have a samosa or a piece of cake at a birthday party, but it is impossible to make a person on fast eat anything that their fast does not allow.

Come March and every woman has her inbox full of invites for attending women’s day events, discounts for purchases to pamper oneself and, sometimes, awards to recognise our achievements.

Indian Joint family living in palatial houses is now a stuff of fiction. A few generations back, it was the norm. In fact, the big houses were built keeping in mind the growing family, which it was assumed would live together.

Ganesh utsav and Navratri brought in the festive season and, along with them, the DJ parties featuring popular Bollywood dance numbers. It set me thinking on the level of intrusion in our lives that we have allowed this one industry. Film and television is one of the most visible industries today.
