Guys Kabir Singh has crossed the 100 crore mark and it is so sad to know that even in such modern times misogyny is making money

    Yikes. Disappointed but not surprised.

    For international beans, 100 crore is 1
    100,000,000 rupees. I don’t know how many USD that is.

      Wait have I got crore right? 1,00,00,000 x 100
      I got confused with the conversion of the commas. There should be nine zeroes. 😂

        Yup. I put 8 zeroes when I was converting the commas in my head, but it should be nine.

Hi beanies. You know how practically every Indian will tell you that our television shows are hopeless? Well yesterday I had hope. So my entire family watches this show about how a very demure housewife tries to rebuild her life after her husband cheats on her and divorces her. Yesterday the husband started abusing his current wife while his daughter had come to visit her grandparents along with her mother. He then abuses his current wife and slut shames her and tells everyone about her teenage pregnancy. His ex-wife is unable to bear this happening in front of her eyes and slaps her ex husband. She tells him that he is a selfish and egotistical man and that when he slut shames women, he does that because it is the easiest thing to do. She goes on to say that the fact that he does this reflects more about his character than the womanโ€™s. She then takes his current wife to live with her for a few days. It was so satisfying to watch women stand up for other women

    Hey Mani-chan! I literally had to make an account after over six years of lurking in this site so I could ask you what is this show? I have been out of loop from Indian shows for a while, this sounds so refreshing.

      It’s called Patiala babes: everyone’s mom watches it ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love the police officer in it and the daughter as well.
      I have some issues with this show but mostly I find it refreshing and pleasant.

        Same. Even though I have some issues with the show it pales in comparison to the issues I have with the rest of Indian television. Also it’s writing is refreshing and offers something new

So my tuition teacher loved Kabir Singh and she loved it and I was like some people found it highly problematic. FYI she also loved the scene in which he chases his house and found it funny 😧😧😧

    Make a e-note of what you ate when you experienced this. Everything you ate last night.
    It could be a food intolerance.
    Drink some lemon water and rest your stomach. Go see a doctor if it recurs again.

Guys were you all in your final year of high school, pondering over your future thinking of how you\’ll adjust because you\’re not good with people? That\’s me right now.

    Nope young lady, I never cared or still care. You will find friends, get along very well with some and would not even want to share the same classroom or your dorm with some person, but that’s always gonna happen, it is more useful to worry about what you wanna be in life and if you enjoy studying your major and what you wanna be the best in.

      On the other hand I was exactly like mani chan. I cared too much. So much so that I let “friends” distract me from 11th grade onwards all the way through university, and my studies suffered.

      So yeah mani – OFG is right. Worry about your college, grades and courses. You’ll meet the right friends along the way, it’ll happen naturally wherever you go.

    I thought the same for a bit but once you get to the real world you’d come to realise that that doesn’t really matter. You’ll find people that would connect to you, so don’t worry ^^

    Agree with all the above, but I won’t say it doesn’t matter, since to you, right now, it does. Instead I’ll say that remember to surround yourself with people who respect you and lift you up, and who you respect and want to see lifted up.

    Being awkward is hard – I literally met my best friend in uni because I complimented her shoelaces at orientation, and almost fourteen years later we still laugh at how awkward I was. But your people will find you, and you will find them. Sometimes it will be taking a deep breath and saying something awkward. And all it takes is just a moment of stepping out from your comfort zone. But all those moments will pass and in the end the people who matter will stay. And like the others say, you’ll find as you get older and get more life experience that most people don’t really care about others’ awkwardness because they are focused on their own anxieties. So even if you care now, it’ll be fine. Just don’t let those feelings distract you from the more important things.

      Thank you @snarkyjellyfish. I worry that I might succumb to the pressure of fitting in and make mistakes in one of the more important phases of my life but you are right. There might be a chance I might look back and realise how much I worried unneccessarily

      1

        Also: never forget that every mistake is a learning opportunity. I’ve made many mistakes, I’ve made decisions I regret, I will continue to make mistakes and regret my decisions from time to time; so long as I’m not repeating my mistakes I know I’ll be OK. And you will be too.

        Sometimes in the moment regrets and mistakes seem like the end of the world. But I’ll tell you a secret: the world doesn’t end. It keeps going. And so do we. It’s OK to have regrets and make mistakes, but as long as you don’t cling to them and let them rule you, things always pick up again.

    i never worried abt studies of future in high school cause i was sure abt one thing “ill only do/follow things which I love. be it with friends or without friends”
    and i concentrated only on my favs (maths, science, cricket) and believe me these 3 things allowed me to meet people who are my closest friends today.

    So instead of worrying abt what you can’t control but concentrate on what you love and crazy abt… rest everything will fall in place…

    Sania Mirza gets into the news for the stupidest reasons and this one probably takes the cake. People REALLY need to mind their own business (also Veena Mailk of all people, who tf are you?)

    On the plus side nothing gets India and Pakistan united like hating on Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik 😂

    Thatโ€™s a hard one. To me, itโ€™s when there is only one POC character on a show full of caucasian people. They are the โ€œtokenโ€ to prove the show has representation. The worst is when there is a POC gay character but everyone else is straight and white. Another example is when people have that one POC friend. Seeeee Iโ€™m not racist, I have a black friend!โ€. I canโ€™t speak for others thatโ€™s just my perspective.

        ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I used to love Hallmark Christmas movies. I grew tired of how white they were. That’s when I found k-dramas (not how but when) and I jumped in with both feet. They were like long Hallmark movies.
