Chetan Bhagat's 'Anatomy of a Liberal' Is The Autopsy of Logic

Chetan Bhagat, in his recent column "Anatomy of a Liberal", has proven yet again why he is by far the worst thing to have happened to the world of writing. Bhagat presents his myopic view with a deluded sense of self-righteousness that immunises the right wing against any criticism. Essentially, he says: the middle to lower middle classes make the "nationalists", and, therefore, represent "real India", while the liberals are a bunch of tea-in-china-cup elites, their lives devoid of struggle, and are, therefore, clueless about what India needs.

Sita's Diwali: A Futuristic Festival For Women

Like the original, Sita's Diwali will also be celebrated with lamps. And, the lamps of Sita's Diwali will also symbolise the victory of truth over injustice. But it will be a different truth, and a different injustice. And it will be about a whole different victory. The protagonist of Sita's Diwali will, of course, be Sita. Not just because this is her story, but because Sita is the original "India's Daughter". She is one figure in Indian history and mythology whose life singularly encompasses the truth of Indian womanhood in its entirety.

One Tight Slap: Safe And Unsafe Responses To Street Harassment

In India, the perceived "honour" or "dignity" of a woman (that's oddly contingent on what others say or do to her) becomes more important than her safety. And women often jump to defend that "honour" even if it means self-endangerment. What we really need to talk about more in India is that threats or use of physical force to confront street harassment is unsafe, unwise and at times also illegal. In dealing with harassment in any place, safety should be a woman's number one concern. Here are some dos and don'ts.

Let's All Be Feminists Together--#HeForShe

Like Hilary Clinton's said: "women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights", so let's make sure we recruit more people to strive for equality and appreciate those who already are. In this world where inequality is so prevalent, we should aim to all be feminists together.
