The popularity of TikTok can be primarily attributed to the never-ending flow of titillating videos, cringeworthy content, suggestive expressions, risqué humour and raunchy moves. The increasing popularity of TikTok is evidence that we have a grotesque, scintillating, sexual, raunchy, hate-filled dark side to us, in contrast to the otherwise sober-sanskari-value-loaded outer personalities we project!
It is very important to understand that our children are as vulnerable and stressed out as we are. They may not know it yet. If your child is nervous or under stress, he/she could be displaying one or some of the following signs. Watch out for these ten signs of anxiety and to be able to address them early on.
It is utterly important to understand that detachment does not mean that you should stop to love, to care, being passionate, being involved. It just means learning to “live in the moment”.

If there is one movie, you’d watch in 2020, or even this decade, make it Thappad! It’s not about the best or larger than life visual treat and cinematic experiences like Bahubali or Tanhaji. It’s about real things. It’s about you and me. It’s about being a woman. It’s about being a woman, in India.

Throughout our lives, we reach points where a situation or a person no longer adds value to our life journey. But for some reason, maybe conditioning, we try to salvage what was by spending our last emotional cent on its preservation. Not knowing what is next, and also being afraid to let go, sometimes makes this step hard. There is usually an element of sadness in moving forward, but ultimately you are walking the path of the warrior who has the courage to move ahead into what they deserve and want. You are entering a situation that welcomes you, a situation that serves you breathes life into you, brings you joy, and aligns with your best self.
