Sit right. You’re a girl. Eat right. You’re a girl. Dress right. You’re a girl. Learn to cook. Learn to clean. Learn to fold the sheets. Don’t laugh too loud. Don’t talk so much. Don’t make a fuss. DO AS YOU ARE TOLD. Every girl out there has heard all of this and more. We may have stepped out of the house and earned rightful seats at schools, colleges and offices, but we still have sisters whose voices are smothered. Women’s Day, like every such ‘day’ is to celebrate a cause and serves as reminder to those who have lost sight of the bigger picture. Lost in trolling and mocking others, people forget the things that matter. They need to be thrust into reality and March 8 is a red flag in our calendar to remind privileged women that there are still women shackled by oppression. It is a day to help us see how far we have come in the ‘women’s empowerment’ department and to also remind us how far we still must travel. Happy Women’s Day! Parvathy Menon makes the perfect cover girl, because her journey in cinema is inspiring. She has been up there afloat on cloud nine and she has fallen on her face. She just jumps right up and starts climbing again. We also have special interviews with Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, Brindha Master, Poorna and Aarathy Arun Vijay to give you a multidimensional view on just what it feels like to be a woman in cinema. Also, inside is a tribute to the Queen, Sridevi who will live on forever in our thoughts. Shanthanu and Kiki bring in the mush quotient, while also inspiring us to be more supportive partners to our spouses. Read. Enjoy. And wait for our BIG FAT ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL next month! Woohoo! Au revoir! Kaanchan Prashanth, Deputy Editor
