Happy New Year to my readers. Here’s wishing for you that you sloughed off all the undesirable things of your life. Sloughed them off like a discarded skin to emerge new and strong and ready to take on whatever 2014 has for you.

I really enjoyed a thought-provoking video from Upworthy where Vivienne Westwood has used mannequins to send a strong message. Brilliant.

I know that many women, specially in India where a woman is worth nothing, are beaten and suffer domestic violence, mostly in silence. I know that scarves, clothing and make up are used to hide the signs of that abuse and that though those bruises may lose their purple sheen, the dents they have made on your soul always remain. One way to reclaim your self-esteem and your power is to report it and refuse to put up with it. Sometimes this leads to divorce. So be it. Domestic violence is a very good reason to divorce the man in your life. Don’t suffer it.
