So today I am going to review one more movie. Yesterday I went out to watch Toilet-Ek Prem Katha (Toilet- One Love Story) with my brother and my husband. It was one great movie and definitely a worth watch.
Now the story revolves around the husband named Keshav whose wife left him in the initial days of the marriage because there wasn’t any toilet in his home. Yes! You heard me right. Now this might seem a very funny reason for divorce to a few people, but there are millions of people in India for whom having a toilet is a luxury. Now, back to the story, once his wife abandons him, he sets out on a mission of building a toilet in his village, where for people building a toilet at home is not acceptable because of their age old traditions and beliefs that doesn’t allow impurities or waste related things in their home where their God resides. For them, it’s like insulting their God by having dirt around. On one hand, convincing his father who is a pure Pandit and on the other hand saving his marriage, Keshav fights and wins his wife back by fighting against the beliefs that has been followed for so many years.
Long back, I had blogged on how Defecation is a big problem in my country India. Millions of people defecate in the open due to the non availability of the toilets. Due to the lack of sanitation facilities, poor people are left with no choice except defecating on the roads or in the garbage area or near railway tracks or behind the bushes and so on. Some people even use plastic bags for the toilet matters. Due to this, the hygiene level is zero and the lack of hygiene in return increases the chance of diseases and the health problems. Not only this issue is being faced in the villages, but also, in the major cities too. The problem is not that government isn’t ready to provide proper toilets to them, but in some part of India, there are people who believe in defecating in open and not having a toilet. In some villages, women specially have to walk and go far for defecating. Defecating behind the bushes increases the chance of animal attacks like snake bites. Also, women need privacy during their menstruation period, which is not possible due to the lack of toilets or latrines availability. This not only has the bad impact on their health, but also, affects their dignity. But, even after knowing this, there are many who continue to defecate in open and don’t even consider this as a problem. I have even read that, a few women try to avoid their meals per day so that the need to go to toilet reduces. This in the future will not only affect their health, but also would bring various health risks.
This motion picture precisely display the issues, convictions and how people must change with the change around. It shows how Keshav fights for his love, his wife’s right to have a toilet at home, making people believe that defecating in open or even in the river is as good as disrespecting God. This movie is based on the true events and is a must watch movie and spreads a great social awareness among us “No toilet, No wife.”
For change in our life, we just can’t be dependent on one person, even we need to change to have a change around or in our life.

Sometimes you are happy,
By seeing others happy.
One does everything to please them, to maintain their happiness.
But at times, those things come at a cost.
The path of making others happy is not easy,
One has to sacrifice a lot,
Also sometimes one’s own happiness.
Making others happy is good,
But it could cost a lifetime sorrow for some.
Even after all this,
The most difficult part of the life is,
Keeping a smile on the face,
So that no one can see the actual darkness lying within you.

Yesterday, my mom insisted me to watch Mubarakan movie, which I was initially reluctant to watch. But after tiring work day and my hectic schedule, I deserved some leisure time for myself and so I decided to join my family to watch this movie 🙂. Well, I don’t regret my decision at all because after watching this extremely entertaining and hilarious movie, I was feeling refreshed and calm 😀.
Mubarakan is a comedy movie based on twin brothers and their love story. The story revolves around their families who start searching for brides for their sons, unknown to the fact that their sons are already in love with someone.
This is the first time, when I saw my husband laughing so much while watching a Bollywood movie 😮! Yes, well my husband is a Kollywood and a Hollywood movie fan and he rarely watches Bollywood movies. The one he watches are purely because of me😋, as I hate watching movies alone 😕! Not only me and my mom and my brother, but also my husband enjoyed watching this movie. The main lead, the actors Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor did truly well 👏🏼. Ratna Pathak (one of my favorite actresses) also did a great job as a supporting role and I always enjoy watching her part in any movies. All the characters were good and the humor in the movie was awesome too. For me, it’s a must watch movie 😄.
So guys don’t miss watching this movie, I guarantee a full two and half hour of madness 😆and laugh😂 and fun 😃and you won’t regret watching this movie at all 🙂.
Reliving the moments, I had with you,
Each place I visited reminded me of you.
Those lanes, our long walks, the beautiful weather,
The bench on which we sat and had witnessed the beautiful nature.
Though you are far,
Let me tell you I miss you.
All I wish now is to see you soon,
Share my journey, which was incomplete without you.

Today, I had a fun filled day with this little champ 😘
My nephew, My baby Kiyaan, whom I love a lot ❤️. In this insane and fast pace world, you are the only person who keeps my sanity in check✅. You relieve your aunt’s stress by just embracing her and kissing on her cheeks ☺️. You just make her day, when you come running to her🏃🏻. The excitement in your eyes when you see her, flatters her completely 😍.
It’s because of you, I got to visit a place that, I had been, when I was a small kid. Thanks for reminding me and taking me into my childhood flashback🤓.
I love to hear when you learn new words taught by me🙂🙃. Today, I enjoyed watching you repeating the names of different birds and animals, I taught you in the much cutest way😁. Thanks for coming into this world and enlightening my life😃. Love you😗.
It’s better to face the reality,
Instead of living on a hope for a change
As a few people won’t ever change.
Wasting your energy on the wrong person will only affect your peace,
But it won’t have any impact on that soul.
The sooner we accept
The better our lives would be.
The more we expect from such people,
The more we are making our life tough.
Sometimes letting your guard down,
Giving up would be a good step.
As we cannot make everyone happy,
So it’s better to move on
And stay away from such negative energy for our betterment.

I am very happy to hear the verdict of Nirbhaya’s case that was out a few days back. After a five long years, Nirbhaya got justice. Though she is no more with us, but today actually she might be resting in peace. Nirbhaya’s parents got what they wanted for their daughter’s justice.
The Indian law does not permit to publicise the rape victim’s name and so the victim(Jyoti Singh) was named as Nirbhaya which means fearless. On 16th December 2012, an incident that took place was broadly denounced in India as well as abroad. A 23 years old physiotherapy intern Jyoti Singh was gang raped in a moving private bus and severely tormented by six men. She was travelling with one of her male friends who was beaten with an iron rod by those rapists. The rapists then threw them out of the moving bus. They were found by a passerby who then informed the Delhi police. The police took them to a hospital where later Nirbhaya was kept on mechanical ventilation. The doctors found various injury marks all over her body. One of the accused even confessed that a rope like object (assumed to be her intestines) was pulled out of the woman by other accused in the bus. Two blood-stained metal rods were retrieved from the bus and medical staff confirmed that “”it was this object which was used to penetrate her private parts, uterus and digestive organs to wipe off traces of semen, which could have been used as an evidence incase the victim survived the brutality.” Eleven days after the incident the woman was transferred to one of the Singapore hospitals for emergency treatment, but due to her severe injuries she died two days later.
Remembering that incident once again, still enrages me. I feel that any punishment given to those accused will not suffice. They are animals in the form of humans and I feel like abusing them repetitively. I feel these monsters should have been castrated and asked to live with that pain forever. Because the pain through which any girl goes through after such gruesome incident is beyond our imagination. She will be reminded of that incident again and again until she gets the justice. There are many girls, women out there who are still waiting for their justice and are not aware after how many days or years they will get justice.
On May 5th, the Supreme court upheld Delhi High Court Death Sentence verdict in the case of Nirbhaya incident and rejected the mercy plea of the four remaining rapists(One of the rapists had committed suicide inside the Tihar jail and one was a teenager who was given three years of life imprisonment as he comes under the Juvenile justice) saying this is the rarest of the rare crime that shook the conscience of the entire nation.
