#MONDAYMOTIVATION Womens Equality Day

Another year, another edition of Women’s Day.

We will see talks and events.

We will see promises and intentions.

But tomorrow we will go back to the routine.

When you will look around tomorrow, most of the surroundings will still have similar composition.

Most of the teams will still be same.

Most of the priorities will still be same.

Most of the outcomes will still be the same.

Lets not pledge to make this special by calling it diversity. Make it real with giving it EQUALITY.

Happy Womens’ Day!

Taking it too far

Two recent things that made me wonder if as a society, we are taking things too far.

First is this strange and completely misleading judgment pronounced by one of the high courts recently.

It seems the court could not assess the mental agony of the victim and that too at such a tender age. And no it doesnt mean that this makes any sense at any other age.

Second is this highly insensitive and inappropriate Dilbert comic strip.

Flummoxed to see this comic strip today. Do we really call this satire?
