  1. I'm afraid so, CP! The North-East monsoon has killed the weather here. If I had heating, it wouldn't be so bad. Back in NZ, temperatures in December went down to -2 °C at night, but things were OK, as there were adequate heating facilities.
  2. Good luck indeed, CP. Patriarchy will not be wiped out any time soon. I've come to accept that. We obviously do not live in a Utopian society. Anyway, at least some social classes in India are beginning to accept that there is indeed a horrific problem within. That's a start.
  3. By equal treatment of both genders, I meant ridding society of that wretched patriarchal mindset. This is far more than just an issue of criminality. It goes way deeper than that. In India, female infanticide, the mistreatment of girls and women even within their own household stem from a patriarchal mindset. A patriarchal mindset leads to women being treated as second class citizens. In the case that I posted about, we had members of the police who callously informed the bereaved family that the girl must have eloped. We also had politicians who had the audacity to blame the girl by asking why she was roaming the streets at night. If this isn't a patriarchal mindset, then I don't know what is. Will a man in India be asked such questions about his clothes, where he goes, what he does and what time of day he goes out? Absolutely not. It is this sort of attitude and mindset that emboldens rapists. If women were treated with the same respect that men seem to enjoy in India, then such incidents will be curbed. This is not just my opinion, but an opinion that is shared by many in India. https://www.youthkiawaaz.com/2018/05/rape-culture-in-india-3/
  4. I recently watched a documentary called "Monty Python: Almost the Truth" on Netflix. It is brilliant! I highly recommend it, if you have not seen it yet.
  5. This is not random by any means. This has been on my mind these past few days. As a new week is approaching, I have a favour to ask humanity. I am not demanding special treatment for women. I am not dissing every man on earth. All I ask is that women be treated like human beings and not objects. Is that too much to ask? Think about it. The minute we start demanding equal treatment for both genders (even in the smallest of life's aspects), will be the day when our society witnesses real change. Four men confess to gang rape of woman they later burned alive, Indian police say https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/30/asia/india-gang-rape-intl/index.html
  6. Utterly saddened by this! RIP Mr. Jonathan Miller. Thanks for the laughs! Love "Beyond The Fringe". Such irreverent humour! https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-50574472
  7. Utterly cold and miserable. Very overcast! It was so dark at noon today.
  8. Does menopause make women so crabby that their personality changes completely?! I ask, as I am trying very hard to understand. My mum is pushing 60 and well, at times I feel as if I have to walk on egg shells while interacting with her. Like the other day, I was just minding my own business and was busy with stuff, when she suddenly asks me if I am about to get my period, as I (according to her) have been acting like a bitch lately. That really hurt and I felt that it was totally out of line and very rude and insulting, but I just kept quiet and said nothing! I absolutely hate negative thinking and negative feeling, as I myself am recovering from a very serious bout of depression, where a few months ago, to me, life was just a big black hole. But I am finally recovering. But at times, my mum just triggers me with her horrid words! Also, does old age make men crabby too? I mean I am facing the same situation with my dad. I have to think twice before I say anything to either of them. I know that I shouldn't be talking like this, but it is just so depressing encountering things like this. Why does everything have to have a bleak outlook or be a problem?
  9. In answer to the OP's question, I sure hope so! Is it any wonder then that Prince Andrew earned the nickname "Randy Andy"? Also, since when do grown men (especially old men) have "birthday parties"?! Arrogant, entitled and a total waste of taxpayer money.
  10. Oh absolutely! What sets the Pythons by the Pythons book apart from the rest, is that we have actual narrations from the Pythons themselves about their early life, Monty Python, Pre-Python shows such as Do Not Adjust Your Set, The Frost Report, At Last the 1948 show, etc., and even extensive narrations as to how they all were coping with Graham's deteriorating health at the time. It is a fantastic read! Plus, there are so many never before seen photos of the Pythons as kids with their families and during the filming of Flying Circus, Life of Brian, etc. I am nearly halfway through.
  11. Somehow, orange peaches are proving utterly delectable this time of year! 😏
  12. How did you like "Ford vs. Ferrari"? I am thinking of going to see it very soon.
