The official TEDTalks video of Shah Rukh Khan

TED-talks-shahrukh-khan

We have been waiting for this for so long, the official TED  Talk video of Shah Rukh Khan. It’s not just a name, he is phenomena. He is so well-read and has an innate charm and wits and it reflects when he talks. He isn’t those typical preachy guys, he is fun, he is witty, he is articulate and most importantly draws life lessons from his personal experiences and the words have the power to connect to the masses. Without much ado, just check out this amazing video of his recent TED Talk, where he talked at a stretch on humanity, fame, and love. So, go ahead and click on the play button below:

Inspired? I am sure you all must- be. Now, check out  10 big quotes from Shah Rukh Khan’s addressal:

“I sell dreams and I peddle love to millions of people back home in India, who assume that I am the best lover in the world.”

“I have been made to understand that there a lot of you who haven’t seen my work and I feel really sad for you. That doesn’t take away the from fact that I am completely self-obsessed, as a movie star should be.”

“I truly believe that humanity is a lot like me. It is an ageing movie star, grappling with all the newness around itself, wondering whether it got it right in the first place and still trying to find a way to keep on shining regardless.”

“By the time I was 40, I was really flying. I had done 50 films by then and 200 songs and I had been knighted by the Malaysians and given the highest civilian honour by the French government. Humanity was soaring with me. We were both flying off the handle actually.”

On the internet:  “We had expected an expansion of ideas and dreams; we had not bargained for the enclosure of judgment.”

“I looked at my face and realized I am starting to look more and more like my wax statue at Madame Tussauds.”

On joining social media:

“Everything I said took a new meaning, everything I did- good, bad, ugly was there for the world to comment upon and judge. Everything that I didn’t say or do was met with the same fate.”

“Reality became virtual and virtual became real. I started to feel that I couldn’t be who I wanted to be or say what I actually thought. And humanity at this time completely identified with me. Both of us were going through mid-life crisis. Humanity, like me, was becoming an over-exposed prima donna.”

“I tried to reconstruct my identity on social media.”

“Neither power nor poverty can make your life more magical or less torturous… Whatever helps you survive is perhaps the oldest and simplest emotion known to mankind. And that is love.”

“Mankind will never be the wiser about its future unless it is coupled with a sense of love and compassion for their fellow beings.”

“You may use your power to build walls and to keep people outside or you may use it to break barriers and welcome them in.”

Not only this, there is more in store. SRK is all set to launch the Indian version of the TED Talk and in an exclusive interview he described the format as,

“People will share stories about changes in society, in life — whether it’s about the climate, dangerous diseases or to help empower women — and all of this will be integrated. There are some beautiful stories — both Indian and international — which the team is planning to get on one platform and do a nice mix of Hindi and English speakers. I feel it will be a niche show.”

So, we are waiting for the execution of the project and would love to hear your thoughts on what you loved most about his TED Talks.

More the laws; less the Justice

nirbhaya-rapists-collage_647_050517022001

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are affected”- Benjamin Franklin


I remember like yesterday the morning of December 17, 2012; the cold and unforgiving morning of Delhi. The newspaper headlines shook the city awake which should ideally have risen from its deep slumber way back. It took six men (one of those was apparently just a boy), a moving bus, and an iron rod along with God knows what all tools to rape and tear apart a hapless 23-year-old who has since become “Nirbhaya”- The Fearless.


What surprised me and still surprises me is: It takes this level of brutality to finally stand together against criminals of the lowest order. One and only slight solace from a tragedy of one family was that it finally outraged the “Unaffected”. But are we really the unaffected I wonder. We all (especially the women) have been subjected to some sort of sexual offence in varying degrees at some point of time which makes us the affected party as well and disgusting truth is that somewhere down the line we have accepted these instances as part of our lives. But for the sake of clarity, let us assume that other than the victim and her immediate family & friends, all of us are the unaffected ones and this gruesome incident shook us to the core so much so that some of us started demanding horrifying punishments ranging from public hanging, castration so on and so forth. We all (I included) kept on screaming for some time questioning the impotency of judicial system, insensitivity of the police and the worthlessness of our political system. Screams get tired and faded after sometime and it takes instances like yet another rape or reminders like judgments from different courts to revive our latent anger and the cycle of should be’s and shouldn’t be’s begin again.


Other than this justified outrage a lot of us were also shocked at responses from the accused. While talking to Leslee Udwin who was filming a documentary on the same subject titled ‘India’s Daughter’, one of the accused claimed that if only the victim did not fight back, they would have graciously left her alive. Fight for dignity proved fatal for the girl. Another accused claimed that by going out so late at night the girls themselves invite Molesters. What makes me hopeless is that if we all try very hard, we may still improve the judiciary, the police and even the political system but how the hell are we going to change the way some (sadly impressive number) people think about and treat women.

 

It has been more than four years since she died, one of the accused decided to take his own pathetic life, four out of six accused are still alive although jailed and one of the accused who was supposedly just a boy moves free. There were many voices who spoke in favor of that boy who walked free, claiming he was gullible and under influence of his adult accomplices. In words of Terry Goodkind- In words of Terry Goodkind- “ Pity for the guilty is treason to the innocent”. I wish we all could have stood together by the innocent this time around. Sadly we can not question, neither we are equipped to change the laws which allow such criminals to walk out free and lead a normal life.

One saving grace in the entire episode has been that the Supreme Court has upheld death sentence for the remaining four accused. People are saying that justice has been served although delayed. I honestly do not think this qualifies as justice. I do not know what should be justice in this case but this judgment of hanging the four accused does not sound or feel like justice. The kind of trauma she went through and the kind of pain her family is still going through, closure is hard to find. We can only hope that this outrage ignited at the cost of her life never settles down. I pray we all are better than ourselves tomorrow than we were yesterday.

ShahRukh Khan rocks the TEDTalks with his wits, charm, intelligence, and lungi dance

shahrukh-khan-ted-talks

Shah Rukh Khan as always was at his wittiest best when he spoke at the 2017 TED conference on Thursday.  The audiences went head over heels at Vancouver, Canada to get a glimpse of the Superstar.

He kept the conversation interesting by talking on his persona of the ‘King of Romance’ to how the world has changed following the arrival of the internet.

He spoke so well that as per the reports in Business Insider goes, he was apparently the funniest speaker at TED 2017 up until now.

He playfully portrayed himself as an aging movie star grappling with the changes around him.

Khan will soon be launching the Indianized version of the show and will do a debut in India where he will play the role of curator Chris Anderson. Chances are the show will be in Hindi.

During his TedTalks he also said, “For years, I’ve been a huge fan of TED Talks,” Khan said, referring to the conference’s freely shared videos in which brilliant and accomplished people dive concisely into captivating concepts.

Furthermore, Khan, at his philosophical best, drew a parallel between a movie star and life. The report quotes him as saying, “Humanity is a lot like me. It’s an aging movie star, grappling with all the newness, wondering whether she got it right.”

To end the show with a bang he also did a short performance on his popular track ‘Lungi Dance‘ from Rohit Shetty’s 2013 action comedy Chennai Express. The song has almost become a cultural marker for India as Deepika Padukone also performed on the same at a couple of global talk shows and also at the Indian premiere of her Hollywood debut film, DJ Caruso’s action ensemble xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams

serena-williams1-letstalkrandomdotcom

You remember that time when we would not stop gushing over the decision of Kareena Kapoor to walk the ramp all pretty and dressed up and happily flaunting a baby bump? At that time it was considered to be a benchmark of feminism by all of us. But it is ancient history now. Then came Beyonce our beloved queen bee who set some really high pregnancy announcement goals clad in a beautiful bikini and she didn’t just stop there. Her performance at the Grammy’s with a baby in her belly was out of the world. We all thought this is the maximum on Goddess scale.

Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending

But wait !!! Not so quick. If there is anyone who deserves this title of Goddess if there is anyone before whom we all should bow our heads in reverence it is Serena Williams. Lately, she announced she is 20 weeks pregnant and we all started calculating backwards. She was 2 months pregnant when she not only participated in Australian open but went ahead and won the title in style. She won the final match without losing a set and she had a baby in her womb all this time.

Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending   Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending

So what makes this woman a Goddess you ask? When for most of us mere mortals it is difficult to hop out of the bed and we are all cranked up in a snap thanks to hormones flying crazy at that time of the month when so called Chums pay an unwelcome visit; this woman has a whole person inside her and is totally ruling her job. I can not even begin to comprehend the kind of scary thoughts she must be having. But she overcame all of this in style. Honestly, whatever little I am into tennis, I was a fan of Sampras once upon a time as a kid then I was in total awe of Federer. It shames me to accept that in spite of being a self proclaimed feminist, I chose to ignore a woman who is equally good at her job as these greats and it took an out of this world badassery on her part to draw my attention towards her. Believe me when I say I have goosebumps when I am talking about her. Serena Williams happens to be anything and everything that is amazing about being a woman. The kind of physical strength a woman’s body holds and the kind of emotional strength it takes to be doing what she did is unfathomable. Anybody and everybody who has ever questioned choices of women who decided to have a baby without compromising on their careers; the answer is Serena Williams. Anybody and everybody who has questioned professionalism of pregnant women; the answer is again Serena Williams.

Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending   Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending   Let's Talk Random Strong is the new Sexy: Serena Williams RANDOM Trending

Life must not have been a cakewalk for her. Being Black and being a girl in an unforgiving world and on top of this, deciding to play a sport which was a rich white man’s game for a very very long time. Her hairstyle was questioned; why would she wear beads they asked, claiming that the beads distracted opponents. Her choice of clothing was questioned; isn’t it way too short and way too tight when she decided to wear catsuit for a game. Her choice of bra was questioned; she makes so much of money, why can’t she buy some good quality sports bra to cover those nipples they advised. She kept silent and she kept doing her job and she kept ruling at her job. Showing to all of us self obsessed feminists- This is how it is done.

Next time anyone who worships a pregnant woman for walking down a ramp or worships a pregnant woman for dancing at an award show; to them I shall say yeah they are great and everything but there is one Goddess who rules us all and her name is Serena Williams. We should stop telling the world that Serena Williams is one of the greatest female Tennis Players. We should stop saying she is the greatest sportswoman of all times. We should also stop focusing on only the fact that Williams is one of the greatest Sportsperson the world has ever seen. We should tell the world what Serena really is: She is a legend and a revolution we have been waiting for so long. She has set some really high goals for each one of us and every subsequent that time of the month when I am thinking of calling in sick or am inclined to reach office a little late; I shall remind myself what this Goddess would have done in my place.

There is a Superhero called Superpreet

There-is-a-Superhero-called-Superpreet-letstalkrandomdotcom

Dearest Superpreet Kaur!

I have an idea that I am being a perfect jerk because I am using your story at such difficult time in your life, so I will begin by apologizing to you. I am very very sorry for using your story without your permission. You must have already noticed that I took the liberty of modifying your name slightly because I am in total awe of you. My intention behind sharing your story, however, is not that bad because in this crazy messed up world where most of us are emotionally challenged, we can learn a thing or two from Superheroes like you !!

I have seen grief myself and my own blood boils when people use my grief and try to make sense out of the disasters of my life. My grief is mine alone and the world has no business in taking my grief and drawing out lessons from it and then shoving the same lessons down my throat. Trust me when I say that I hate myself for doing the same to you what the world has been doing to me all these years. But I will draw a line; I am not going to take out lessons from your grief and recite the same to you. Why am I telling my version of your story then? Although I accept that I have no intention of using your story to make this world a better place but please allow me to try and become a better person myself through your strength of character. Like I said, I have seen grief; but what I have not seen is the courage you exhibited when fate forced you to read out the news of your own world coming crumbling down. You had one job and you made sure you did it come hail, come storm or come death of the love of your life. I wonder where you get this courage from and I am embarrassed to accept that I let my emotions grab hold of my good sense and I refuse to learn to be better emotionally equipped disaster after disaster and grief after grief.

I am in awe of you because when I see people here in India killing a man for apparently eating cow meat, when I see people in Pakistan killing a student and then defiling his dead body for apparent blasphemy and when I see people all over the world refusing to consider people different from their own kinds as humans I wonder why couldn’t these people contain their emotions? The little I know of grief; anger is a major part of it and somewhere you must have felt it as well. Although not all of us can be superheroes like you but there has to be a way to control this anger and sadness which makes us want to burn down the whole world. If only we all just do our jobs (like you did) and just fulfill the purpose for which we were born (I am pretty sure it does not include taking away human life for whatever reasons) wouldn’t the world be a better and safer place?

Let's Talk Random There is a Superhero called Superpreet RANDOM Trending

I am sure you have as big heart as I imagine you to possess and you are going to forgive me if you come across this piece for using your story. It is just that in the first time in forever I want to become a better person and that is because of you. You don’t know me but please believe me when I say; if I could, I would take away all your pain just to make sure that beautiful souls like you never know what pain is. But I guess that somewhere down the line it is pain that makes souls beautiful and for you I can relate to this song:

Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman
Standing up to a test while wearing a party dress
Sometimes looks can be deceiving
When you’re quietly over achieving
Oh, sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

With Love and Blessings and Healing,
From Girl who knows Grief but no Courage

Ganga says Enough !!!

ganga-says-enough-letstalkrandomdotcom

It just so happens that I vehemently try and remember the long lost mythological stories of my childhood these days. I had no idea when I heard these stories that there would come a day that I would forget them and voices which narrated these stories will be lost forever. Or else, I would have written down these stories somewhere. The people who narrated these pieces are long gone and I have to rely on my fading memory which is desperately trying to hold onto last shreds of this ancestral treasure of countless stories which are all but half-remembered dream I hope never to forget.

Let's Talk Random Ganga says Enough !!! RANDOM Trending

One such story is that of Ganga; the daughter of majestic mountain Himalaya. Ganga is believed to have been sent down on earth for the sole purpose of relieving the human race from the endless cycle of birth and death and rebirth. The river takes upon herself all our sins, thus cleansing us and still remains pure. Poor Ganga !! Destined to kill her own sons to absolve them of their sins. Ganga! Who was once labeled too fast & difficult to control and as a result ended up all tangled in the endless hair locks of Shiv himself? How convenient this all sounds right? We have been given an easy outlet to dump all our sins and just in case it is felt that Ganga is going out of bounds, there is a Shiv to control her. But what if Shiv did not control her and it was Ganga’s decision herself to go and sit on Shiv’s head to cool of his infamous temper? Why blame Ganga of being out of bound? Why not question Shiv’s temper? I am digressing towards Feminazism people. I acknowledge and am Sorry !! Back to the topic…

Why this sudden surge of empathy towards Ganga? I had an opportunity to go on a trip at the banks of the river and I somehow had sleepless nights a few days before the trip in happy anticipation of walking barefooted on its banks at night, feeling cool sand against my skin and listening to the river roar at night. What conspired however totally disappointed me. Now, I am not a fanatic Hindu, I am ashamed to say that I do not care about the environment as much as I should but when I saw broken beer bottles, plastic bottles, polythene bags and used up condoms at the bank of the river, I took personal offense. There is this person who cleans up our sins and is equally essential for our survival and this is how we treat her?

Let's Talk Random Ganga says Enough !!! RANDOM Trending   Let's Talk Random Ganga says Enough !!! RANDOM Trending

Have you ever wondered what would happen if one fine day Ganga calls quits? What would happen if Ganga gets up and says go to hell you morons, I am not taking your crap and condoms any longer and keep your sins to yourself. I am leaving, to hell with you and your sins. The way we are treating her is totally disrespectful and it is only a matter of time when Ganga finally loses her patience. I will tell you what would happen when such a day comes. All hell would break loose and we will have no place to hide that day.

 

We have two options with us, either we start treating Ganga with the respect she is entitled to or else we make our own shoulders strong enough to carry the burden of our sins. Because I feel Ganga had enough already! Spare her now people.

Get Well Soon Mira Rajput

Mira-Rajput-Get-Well-Soon-letstalkrandomdotcom

Dear Mira Rajput (wife of Shahid Kapoor),

First things first, congratulations on your fairy tale wedding and many more congratulations on your brand new beautiful baby girl. Now that the pleasantries are over and done with, we can totally get down to business! I am generally very busy in my professional life and hardly enjoy the luxury of commenting “Awww” on the super cute pictures of your baby you and your husband keep posting on social media. However, something happened a few days back, which forced me to stay up late at night and draft this heartfelt note; I am sure you are equally busy in being a wife and a mother and may not have time to go through this post so this letter although addressed to you is primarily for showing solidarity with the fellow struggling females whom you addressed “Feminazi”.

Tell me Mira, didn’t you realize for a second that what you were saying was hurtful and insulting when you claimed “I cannot spend an hour with my baby and go to work, this is not why I gave birth, after all it is not a puppy”? Do you think that a Mom who travels in a local train to and fro office and chops vegetables en route any less of a mother? Is love of such a mother for her child lesser than your love for your baby only because this working mom has aspirations different from yours? Are children of such mothers “puppies” just because their moms have a career and identity which is not restricted to being a wife and a mother?

I am not a mother and I am in my early thirties, on top of it I do not have a fairy tale scheduled in near future and as per your standards; people like me should write ourselves off because of lack of “Accomplishment” in the field of being a wife and mom. Now, you may say what do I know about being a mother; because my uterus is redundant not having served its sole purpose of popping babies, I must tell you I do know a thing or two about motherhood. When I see my mom (she is above 60) who wakes up at 5 A.M, gets ready to go to school where she teaches and often when I see the kind of respect she claims from her students, I feel pride in being her daughter because of her dedication towards her job even at this age. When I see my sister leaving behind her daughter to go to work; I know she is raising a woman who is fiercely independent and crazy proud of her mother. When I heard that my friend is leaving behind her toddler son with his grandmother for a month to go abroad on a professional assignment; I knew she is raising her son to be a Man in an environment where working women are not looked down upon.

I must confess, I have been on both the sides; I have been judged and I have judged others and when life brought me to my knees I understood the futility and fatality of being judgmental. Still, I am forced to don my judgy hat because you spewed venom against my tribe of fellow proud Feminazis. So excuse me if my words sound bitter, it is solely because of your obsolete opinions. You ridiculed working moms and called their children puppies. I am sure a lot of people must have called you a gold digger, for you managed to marry a film star. How did it feel, being called that? How would you feel if I say (I hope it is not true) that your current husband has just settled for you because more “accomplished” ones (Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan) outrightly rejected him for better alternatives available?

I watched you with your husband on Koffee with Karan Episode for 2 minutes and had to change the channel because what your husband said about you was pukeworthy. He claimed that only reason he married you is because you happen to be the most normal girl he knows and you kept gushing at the statement. Now, if anybody had called me normal on national television I would have kicked that person and would have kicked him hard. He should have married you because you are extraordinary, or atleast because he sees extraordinary in you. But after hearing your ideas on feminism, I second his opinion. You are mediocre at best and totally deserve a husband, who calls you that on national television.

You compared Male Chauvinistic Pigs (MCP) with Feminazis and as per your opinion; a mom chopping vegetables en route from office is a feminazi because she left her kid at home/creche in order to work for his/her better future. Who is MCP? It is a huge definition but let us all accept most basic one to save time: A person who thinks he is superior just because he has a male reproductive system and that is what makes him better than another half of the population. If we apply the same logic to your opinion on the definition of womanhood, just because you were able to give birth by the virtue of possessing a uterus and you are lucky enough to enjoy the luxury of staying back home and you decided not to work at all are you superior to the remaining ones who chose differently? Then who is a Feminazi? A Mom who chops vegetables in local train to make dinner for her child or you? I, who has not given birth yet or you whose only accomplishment, is that you married into money and decided to become a mother?

I have to be equally fair to you, for it is not completely your fault. Why would anybody in their right minds call you to deliver a speech on feminism? There are so many women around who are clearly better alternatives; these women struggled in the past and still struggle for their existence and their dignity. These better alternatives include a mother who has courage to move out of the house to work so that her child can have a better future, a mother who has a career so that her child can look upto her and be proud of her, a mother whose job makes her happy and a happy mom raises a happy child. A woman for whom her identity is not restricted to being a mother & wife could have been called to hear her views or a woman who is happily a mother & wife only but has courage to stand by other women who move out of their houses or maybe a woman who is not a wife neither a mom but is still no less of a woman. So many of these better alternatives were available still organisers chose you.

Face it Meera, you were called to deliver a women’s day speech just because other than possessing a uterus and breasts, you have lots of Manish Malhotra outfits (I am so middle class I cannot even recall anymore designers) and a famous husband. I & Mom chopping veggies did not judge you for being a stay at home mom. I wish you had returned the favor by not judging our choices as well. I hope you raise your daughter to be a better person; a person who does not judge other people’s choices.

From,
Above 30, Not a Wife, Not a Mom but still a Woman (on behalf of all the proud fellow Feminazis)
