Ritu Tawade: The Great Savior Of Indian Men

All of us know how India has acquired the disgraceful distinction of a rape country. I am not very much concerned about the women who are raped, assaulted, or sexually harassed, as it is one of the duties of most Indian women to sacrifice everything and suffer silently to keep the men folk happy. Rather, I am aghast at the bad reputation of our great nation and our men in general. These days, people all over the world think that all Indian men are rapists.

The Downfall Of My Trusted Lieutenants

Friday, May 17, 2013

They are still the most loved and cherished members of our family. In the past, they have always moved with us to various cities around the globe. Even now, one of them always accompanies us on our camping trips as well as to other outings where we stay in log cabins or family suites. We can not imagine our life without them.

But a recent incident—none of their fault in the least—have given them a bad rap. Now we can not even speak aloud our beloveds’ names at public places, nor can we Google them. I was even a bit apprehensive to mention them here, but then decided not to be a chicken any more. It hurts to know that they are treated like pariahs. These handsome dudes have fed me dal-chawal all my life, and I can not ditch them when the going has got tough for them. I would be the last person on this earth to be accused of being a fair-weather friend.

My Dad’s Maruti (Mere Dad Ki Maruti): Movie Review

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Daddu (real name withheld on request) has agreed to write movie reviews for the Grist Mill. He is a closeted Hindi movie fan. Although he doesn't allow his family members to watch degraded movies, he himself goes out and enjoys every movie with his Khap friends. Their families believe that they have gone to panchayat meetings to discuss important social issues. At first, Daddu sent me reviews of the movies that had the word “youth” in their titles, but I explained to him that this was a family blog. Daddu writes in Hindi. I am translating it in English for you.
