1/9Facts about a female’s body she may be too shy to admit 0 Sex education is a sad affair in our country.

Knowing about what is normal and what isn’t is nothing but mandatory. So, in a bid to destigmatize knowledge about your body and its sexuality, here’s looking into facts about a female’s body she may be too shy to…

My love for her didn’t end with her marriage

It was impossible for me to accept that someone could fall in love for life. I never had real dependency for people in my life, until I met ‘Her’. It was not love at first sight, in fact I saw her as a “way” to get close to her rather hot girlfriend.

Since she was an easy catch for me, I kept things casual from…

Why I Didn’t Burst Crackers This Diwali (and Maybe You Shouldn’t Too)

I love festivals. Unabashedly so. The anticipation, dressing up, the traditions involved, the food (oh the food!!) and absolutely anything and everything about festivals. I dress like the demure Indian bride on Karwachauth, have my tree up every Christmas and love tossing popcorns into the bonfire on Lohri. But most of all, I love the month of Diwali. The period between Dussehra and Diwali is my favourite time of the year. The vibe of the Capital city changes completely. It is the month when the weather (thankfully) is sublime, there…

I took 100 selfies a day… didn’t know how to stop

Have you looked at the mirror and hated what you saw? Now increase that self-loathing a 100 times and add panic to it…that’s what I was like few months back. I hated my nose, pimples, skin… I hated looking at my reflection whether in a shopping mall or at home. I would wash my hands and face constantly.
