Twinkle Khanna a.k.a Mrs. Funnybones is not only a fine bollywood actor but also a brilliant newspaper columnist, author and an interior designer. Her book – ‘Mrs Funnybones’ was published last year by Penguin India which got some amazing reviews and was also ranked in Hindustan Times’ best non-fiction chart. She also writes columns for The Times of India and Daily News and Analysis. Twinkle has a marvelous sense of interior designing and we know that because we have seen it! We had dinner at the Kumar’s once, NOT. Jokes apart, we saw it on the internet and some fashion magazines which featured her incredible work. She recently designed Rani Mukherjee’s new house too and it looks F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! Twinkle Khanna loves jewellery and her idea of happiness is riding a scooter in shorts and kurta in Goa. Well, she’s pretty much like us except for the fact that she’s married to the handsome hunk - Akshay Kumar. So jealous ! Apart from having a funny bone, Twinkle has an amazing taste in fashion too. Wow! Is there anything this woman can’t do?  Here are some of the times she showed us how fusion is done right. Twinkle has shown us that a woman should never stop dreaming and learning. We should keep on trying new things which will not only help us all evolve but will also carve us into strong independent women. A marriage is just a change in your relationship status and that shouldn’t affect your career or kill your passion. Thanks for the lesson, T!

We live in a society where girls are brought up with such a protective atmosphere. We are nurtured and taken care of. We grow up with family, most often getting our education in the same towns we grew up in. Most girls go from their parent’s house to their husband’s. This leaves no room for a woman to spend time with herself. Why travelling even more quintessential for a woman in India travel alone at least once in her life. Travel isn’t just a way to escape but it’s the journey towards yourself. It helps you realize what it is to be one with yourself in this pool of people. Travel lets you live a while without compromising. We compromise a hundred little ways every day, so give yourself the chance to live untethered. Want to spend a whole day shopping? Do it. Want to send an evening in cafe with your favourite book? Who’s to stop? Give yourself a chance to live without a schedule, to sleep in late or wander under the stars. To discover new places, new people and a new you. Travelling gives you a chance to be with be dependent on yourself. To manage your own finances and be responsible for your own self.  Taking your own decisions, eating alone, taking that bus ride in a new city can all leave you with an empowering smile. Travelling alone will help you come back a more confident, independent woman. We often believe love is what happens between two people. Travelling helps you redefine the meaning of love. We grow to learn love more than just people. The teary smile on watching the sun rise on a snow clad mountain makes you fall in love with life. Travelling makes you fall in love with places, with new cultures and food. Being aware of your surroundings evokes the love for nature, for water and the wind. The poetry of the silence makes you believe in the magic of love. You don’t just learn what is important in life, but what is important for you in your life. You might hate travelling alone– that’s okay, you have learned that you are not someone who can be alone and perhaps you find you are happiest when you have human affection. Going back to the normal life, you’ll learn to appreciate the little things about people and life. It’ll help you understand the people who really add meaning to your life and who do not. Women who travel solo – for whatever reason, for whomever they meet along the way, for whatever they miss back home, will experience a change that is simply indescribable. It isn’t a word found in the books...it is a feeling of freedom. Of discovery. Of self.

With their macho roles and dramatic fight scenes, the heroes have more or less taken up the lime light in a Bollywood movie. With heroines portrayed as damsels-in-distress or sometimes just as eye-candy over the years, Indian cinema has now come a long way from flowers in their hair to guns in their hand. The past 10 years has redefined women and through empowering scripts helped them take centre stage and deliver their worth. Women have gone from dancing in chiffon sarees around trees to standing up for their rights. Women are no longer about adding glamour to a movie, but they make a significant difference to a certain movie. The following movies have laid out a benchmark for the coming generations of filmmakers by characters so strong and so well executed that they have stayed with us and inspired women across the globe.
  • Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani
Played by Rani Mukharjee, the character of an inspector fighting to rescue young girls being trafficked is not only brave, but also inspiring to women to fight against the unjust society. The movie made an impact not only on the mind of the people but also on the box office proving to the world that a movies success does not depend on a man, as thought otherwise.The attire of a modern police woman in the movie is perfect inspiration for every day office wear.

  • Rani in Queen
A more recent and a more relatable character, Rani has created a swirl across the country. The road to independence of a small town girl breaking norms and finding herself in a new country alone after being stood up by a man has inspired millions of women to stand up and make a life for themselves without being dependent on a man. The bubbly innocence of Kangana Ranaut connected with every young girl across the globe.

Vidya seen in the movie with Kurtas paired with a cardigan is the classic example of comfort wear. Her color blocked kurtas are just perfect to get through the Indian weather.

A classic underdog with the most unconventional story, Saashi was the voice of millions of housewives being looked down upon every day.
