Meanderings - Seema Buckshee on Piku and Bailbirds!

Some movies evoke memories of cities, of friends lost in time, of a people who are frozen deep in memory, who you probably knew in bits and pieces, who you maybe passed on the street or knew as uncles and aunts of friends. Seeing Piku reminds me of all the Bengalis who flooded my childhood - the cantankerous men, the shrieking and oh-so-loud women, the homoepathic doctors who were never ever to be rushed, the schools, or rather, the universities of thought they inhabited and the beautiful baris (houses) that they lived in.

Seema Buckshee on the Vogue Empower video

It's an ad women - it says so clearly: Vogue Empower. It talks about all the choices a woman may exercise if she so chooses, one of them being to have sex outside marriage. It may not be your choice, it may not be a moral choice according to you but it is a choice.

And yet... please take my word for it

You are a gender-sensitive Indian male who believes in equality for women and treats women with dignity and respect. You are progressive. You assert vehemently (and mean it) that you do not view women as chattel, that you would never beat your wife, that you participate in childcare and household chores, that you are supportive of the girl child, of a woman's right to voice her opinions freely. And you walk the talk. You are better than your father, because unlike men of his generation, you treat women as your equals.

International Women's Day - With a Perspective

International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.  The day, which falls annually on March 8, has been celebrated in the United States since 1909, and has spread around the world. This year’s theme is “Make It Happen,” a call to action for the numerous issues facing women today. #MakeItHappen.

It’s a (Wo)man’s World

With International Women’s Day around the corner, I decided to explore why women authors used male pseudonyms. This was prevalent in the 18th and 19th centuries, where many women felt the need to mask their true identities so that they would be taken seriously. From Louisa May Alcott, best known for her literary marvel “Little Women”(which thankfully was published under her real name) to the Bronte Sisters, who knew that the literary world was strongly prejudiced against female writers, many found freedom of expression cloaked in a man’s identity.

Every 8 Minutes, a child goes missing in India


iPartner India launches Every 8 Minutes, the first campaign of its kind that aims to stop child trafficking in India 

Every 8 Minutes a child goes missing in India. 40% of them never return to their villages. They are sold as cheap labour, buried deep in the brothels of major cities, forced to take part in pornographic films and experience unimaginable horrors every day.

This modern day slavery of children is the human rights issue of our time – and it is being stopped.

Crayons and bullets in the classroom

Shiny new bright crayons. Old stubby pieces. How many crayons did we buy for chubby little hands with tiny fingers to hold and draw. A kid can smell a crayon from two rooms away - I think - and butter and chocolates and icecream and sweets. But instead, we give them bullets and the smell of charred flesh.
