All about BOOBS….BUTT of course!!!!!

Hola amigo…. sup??? Me??… Well, as I was going about my usual manic scanning of newspapers, I came across something very interesting… “Sonam Kapoor goes bold, shares a jaw-dropping pic”… Oh no don’t get me wrong… its NOT the non-actress Sonam exposing her rather large (???) boobs that’s interesting… but the fact that this travesty of a news item was the lead in the “Most Read” column of The Indian Express no less!!!!… what is the world coming to??

And for all the “modern” “forward thinking” baloney mouthed by these so-called liberated women, it is finally All About Boobs..Butt of course!!!! The funny bit is the absolutely condescending “bold” tag that is doled out by god knows WHO??… and is revered by these very females as the ultimate triumph… the final achievement of their very being!!! Reminds me of Sati… where the woman is burnt to death on her husband’s pyre by the hypocrites of society only so that they could make her out to be a DEVI!!! So this is the deal girls: if you want BOLD… get naked…and if you want DEVI…you know exactly what to do… fantastic…. nirvana to all round applause!!! Oh and BTW don’t forget your placard when the next rape or assault happens, till then go on with the boob show or burn….

Seriously though, how come a man’s achievement isn’t measured JUST by the size of his dick??? Where is the man’s BOLD and DEVTA tag??? Of course we did see the famous Bond Butt … the Beckham Balls ….. the Nadal nethers…. but those aren’t their claims to fame….Not at all…. in fact if you ask the girls… we’d probably be more fascinated by the metaphorical balls than the biological ones…oops…twos I mean!!!

And then we have this pathetic “empowering video” which proves to me at least that my dear Deepika (and I truly am a huge fan) is still in a low phase… why else would she not use her profound sensibilities as a woman of substance before signing up for such crap!!!! (the details of which are wonderfully outlined by Shobhaa De in her recent column). I haven’t watched the video and won’t, but a trailer I came across now I can’t remember where, was really SAD…. to me the video is NOT empowering at all… and in any case it targets the wrong audience with its voguish looks. What empowers me is:

— knowledge, education…. the fact that I can read, understand, sift information and make my own choices

— being surrounded by women (my mother, friends, family) who are empowered in the true sense… who always encourage me to laugh out loud…say what’s on my mind… be independent… speak against what’s unfair… be my own person…freely!!!

— the men in my life (my dad, my brothers, my husband, my son, friends, family) who are truly supportive and never make me feel the need to prove myself…

— people like Suman Rani of Haryana… Sunita Tomar of Madhya Pradesh… Kubra Khademi of Afghanistan… UAE’s Mariam al Mansouri… everyday people…battling everyday issues with grit…

So at a time when the other big news is how multi-million dollar conglomerates are scrambling to appoint ONE woman director on the Board before the deadline…. and Surprise, Surprise… many found a wifey at hand to do the job for them… it is very disappointing to see educated, intelligent women stoop to the crass “boobs-butt-dumb-blonde” formula and pretend they are spreading empowering messages… who are you fooling girls???… think about it for a sec… with the kind of money and power you girls have you could actually ACT at the grassroots… & directly empower women… set up a factory… adopt a village…. start a girls’ school… fund women’s projects… be a brand ambassador for the under-priviledged…

I mean, I am no HUGE fan of Aamir Khan but his “Satyameva Jayate” I have to say was a brilliant initiative combining his core strength with a cause. What an eye-opener.

The choice really is whether I as a woman will demand and command respect as my birth right ….because I am intelligent… because of the sheer force of my personality… OR will I misguidedly hanker after tenuous, trashy tags…ready to snap the bra open at the click of a camera??? DECIDE!!!!
