11 May 2016 / Mahin Khan

Do you have trouble losing weight? Or would you like to lose faster? You’ve finally come to exactly the right place. The sad truth is that conventional ideas – eat less, run more – do not work long term. Counting calories, exercising for hours every day and trying to ignore your hunger? That’s needless suffering and it wastes your time and precious willpower. It’s weight loss for masochists. Eventually almost everyone gives up. That’s why we have an obesity epidemic. Fortunately there’s a better way. Get ready for effortless weight loss. The bottom line? Your weight is hormonally regulated. All that’s necessary is reducing your fat- storing hormone, insulin, and you’ll effortlessly lose excess weight. Below is a practical step-by-step guide to do exactly that.

Mommy, I want to be a porn star!

21 Jan 2016 / saira

My Facebook wall and every other rendition of “updates”, where we consciously allow people a voyeuristic peep into our lives, is flooded… colossal shares and likes of the video where Sunny says she is not embarrassed by her past and Mr Chaubey badgers her for that little bit of guilt — that little bit of lopsided morality that may spill over, getting him that “one bite” that he can use with his piece to camera saying that he has finally “revealed” an “exclusive” side of Sunny that no one ever knew of — a deep truth of how she actually regrets her “past” i.e career choices! He further goes on to call her commercially successful but patiently checks if she aspired to be a porn queen. Really is this how far we will go to push someone into the moulds of morality. Breathe, Mr Chaubey. Porn is fine and we don’t become lesser human beings by watching or being part of it. And his open letter gets funnier where he talks of “Indians being a bunch of hyper hypocritical people” so what does that make him?? The brave Sunny slayer!

But this really isn’t about a particular interview, Sunny or the journalist — this is about how eager we are to interpret a woman’s life choices and hurriedly put it into a “type” bucket. “Ambitious…bitch man”, or “What is she really doing to get there” or “I wonder how her husband deals with her” etc etc. I can’t even recall how many times have heard the words — needy, cougar, bitch, PMSing etc. being used for women in extremely normal flow of conversations. Often wonder why is it so difficult to let choice be agnostic to gender; and not an interpretation of character, biological or career clocks. Guess, nothing’s ticking really beyond an idle mind. And the worst of it all is the whole diversity angle, don’t even remember how often I have heard the word “diversity candidate” or been the person who provides the diversity and to think that a diverse workforce actually meant race, ethnicity, gender age and whole lot of other things and not really a pink pom-pom and a woman! I remember an interview of Indra Nooyi at the Aspen Ideas Festival where she talks of whether a woman can truly have it all? The interesting part is how she does not make a big deal of it and is fairly matter of fact in conveying her way of managing home and career choices. But I am a little unsure of why the question in the first place; is it really relevant? Cause men and women can both have it all in their own mind and time frames. So when does this ebb? Don’t know, but it leaves one with a trunkful of not so “sunny” thoughts…when do we stop asking women about their life choices and let them breathe in their skin…can they just be happily aggressive and competitive…when can their choices not be such a BIG deal, and just be dealt with over a smoke and a cup of coffee and forgotten like we would in case of any other gender.
