    I have nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award, participation in strictly voluntary. Thank you for your inspiration. http://betternotbroken.com/2014/07/13/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award-thank-you/

  2. Thank you so much for following my blog:)

  3. I so admire your intelligence, and your strength, and your courage and your truth-telling – especially being in India. I’m not Indian, but have visited twice and have read a little, and had an understanding that the inequities between men and women in Indian society are appalling. I’m thrilled to read a woman’s voice of both reason and dissent that I hope gives hope and power to Indian women to stand up for themselves.
    Thank you for visiting our blog, and for liking the post on why we travel.
    I wish you many blessings
    Namaste

  4. Your background is great! Many thanks for your visit. :)

    Hi I’m looking for Kalpana Misra. I’m a Producer for a Norwegian TC programme about Marriage, from all aspects. Would like to speak with Ms Misra. My # is 098713 07363. Anand. Please get in touch asap !

  6. I love your blog..! I’m glad atleast one person in this country thinks like this.. I’m from Bangalore living in NY but the attitude of Indians is the same everywhere. I’m planning to apply for divorce due to incompatibility & constant fights. But my parents & family dont understand why we cant just ‘adjust’..
    btw do you write anywhere else?

  7. Hi Divorceddoodler! I just came across your blog, its like a breath of fresh air. I have been searching for something like this on the internet. In India there are no support groups for Divorcees or someone like me awaiting divorce. I would love to know if you know any such groups or forums to meet or talk to other divorcees. Because divorce is such a taboo in India people dont understand the pain. My husband abandoned my daughter and me not once but twice and ran away, and thats ok for the society.. thats a problem between husband and wife (people conveninetly forget the 2 yr old baby girl) but because he ran away I finally applied for divorce.. now thats a sin.. how can a wife do that! I should have run after him and stayed on the footsteps of his new place even though he got a restraining order and I would be jailed. What a wonderful society we live in:)
    Can you guide me if there are any online or offline groups?

    Thanking you

    ps: please continue doodling:)

  8. Hi
    Would prefer to write on your private email.But I have to say the Supreme Court judgement has left me stunned.

  9. Please serach it in your spam and trash folders. It was a well researched comment. Gist will something like this: I wrote it is a myth that loud and strong women don’t get abused because they raise a din. Strong women are more vulnerable to abuse because they challenge the abuser directly. It is proved by research because they believe if they raised voice no one will belive them as compared to a silent docile women. They are more ashamed and put up a brave face as if every thing is fine. I was one of them. Here is the evidence:

    Hey Desi Girl !
    I wondered why I didn’t get one of your wonderful comments on the blog post about domestic violence. It must be lost somewhere in cyber space. What a pity. I’m curious about what you wrote…

  11. Hi!

    I left a detailed comment about domestic violence in response to your second post. I saw it awaiting moderation for some time and now I don’t see it here so I guess it did not make it to the front. I have not saved a copy. I’ll appreciate if you please return it to me at girlsguidetosurvival@gmail.com

    Peace,
    Desi Girl
