Brown is Just as Lovely

What made it sadder was that this was the unsaid rule. Nobody questioned it. You just knew your place because of brands like #FairandLovely and the ads they showed. A fairer girl bagged the job, got a better marriage proposal, had a better life!

Rich Enough to not have a Health Insurance?

I was directly admitted to the ICU. Since, I lived with my friends in a rented apartment and spent like there was no tomorrow, we were really doubtful if we could provide for my initial fees. Plus direct entry to ICU, so one can only imagine the cost. But for me, the saving grace was the health insurance policy that I had brought from a friend.

Conquered Your Everest?

Edmund Hillary, initially a beekeeper from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a sherpa from Nepal, were the first mountaineers to conclusively set foot on the summit of Mount Everest.

The Holi Happiness

She’d finally retrieved parts of her face back. The remaining still tainted deep red – the “Holi” remnants! Soon she was to post the day’s pictures proclaiming it to be one of the best Holis ever! But from her balcony she saw that one home had no signs of any colour droppings around it.
