“Who told you to put all my earnings into that bank?” shoutsa distraught businessman as he looks at his weeping wife, “Now it is your fault we are ruined!”

In many homes, it’s either a wife or a husband crying out, “You are to blame!”

But who is to blame?

Some point at the director. Some against the trustees, and many the defaulters!

Depositors march up and down, shouting they want their money back and the culprits booked.

But who is to blame?

And here’s a story: A bearded puppeteer walked into a village.

Not only was he a good puppeteer but he was also good with the flute and was known all over as the Puppeteer Pied Piper. He played his tunes cleverly in the village, and the poor villagers listening to his tunes went into a trance. Even with no food in their bellies they dreamt of money landing in their bank accounts, and days becoming better. They also fell in love with war tunes the puppeteer played, that got surrounding villages scared, because the beat was reverberating, the sounds loud and the villagers of the puppeteer felt proud because they had never been able to scare others before.

Then the puppeteer who now had the whole village under his magic spell, looked round and decided his puppets would manage the village.

The bank chief whose job was to look after the small savings of the villagers was given the sack, and a puppet put in charge. The judge was told goodbye and as he left, a puppet occupied his chair, and so also the village crier, who announced the village news suddenly found a puppet doing it instead of him.

And as the puppeteer played with the puppet strings, the puppets went about doing the jobs deftly, managed by the puppeteer’s deft fingers.

The villagers went about their daily lives, wondering, though, why the new puppets could not solve their problems. Forgetting they were only puppets.

Then one day, the people lost all their savings.

They started blaming each other, and even blamed the stony-faced puppet in the manager’s chair, who stared back at them with marble puppet eyes.

Immediately, the puppeteer took up his flute again, and played another war tune, and the people, even those who had lost all their savings, clapped and cheered at the war tunes that were played, and even though broke, broken and beggared they cheered the Puppet Pied Piper, while continuing to blame their wives, and husbands and puppet chiefs, who stared back at them with marble puppet eyes!

Who is to blame?

Why, the villagers of course, for trusting in mere puppets, who did not have the ability of doing specialized jobs and the puppeteer too for thinking he could do every job, just because he was an excellent puppeteer and pied piper..!

Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. There are different dresses meant for different occasions. If you are going for shopping, casual outing, meeting a friend for coffee etc. go with the basics. Casual knee length dress, a denim and a top, simple salwar are perfect for the occasion.

For Day Functions, always go for light colours, floral print, cotton instead of heavily worked dresses or dark coloured, so that you can enjoy the function comfortably. Same goes with the makeup look as well. There are curtain looks that appropriate for curtain occasions.

If you wear heavy makeup, shimmering eye shadow or a smoky eye... it’s a complete NO NO.

Dress accordingly. Over the top makeup will not help you get compliments, instead you become a mockery. You can also choose any metallic colours for night functions like a wedding reception, which is the latest trend now.

Always remember, if you decide to wear a dark coloured dress, compliment it with subtle makeup to enhance the look. Your makeup should always compliment your outfit.

Similarly footwear plays a great role to complete your look. One should be careful enough while selecting foot wears. Wearing a floral knee length one piece, with a white/matching snickers, a basic flat is perfect for a casual look.

Denims and formals dresses are the looks that will never go out of fashion. You can anytime go with a Denim and T shirt for casual look or a formal cotton Indian wear for any official meets. These are few tips that will help you dress well according to the occasion and get your perfect look.

A young student files rape charges against a former Union Minister, and even as the alleged rapist is led off to prison, we hear that higher ups have retaliated by jailing her!

A poor girl from Unnao sees family members killed and injured as she fights another powerful rapist who even tries to mow her down with a truck!

Is this what happens when we decide to fight the powerful?

Should we then like Rahul, call it a day and retreat to the Backwaters of Kerala?

No!

Remember, you who are weary with the fight; trolled, put in jail, humiliated, that it’s through your lonely battles, through your bravery and courage that huge positive changes have taken place in our world.

The last president of the US, Barack Obama was an African-American. Fifty years ago, such a possibility would not have existed in the imagination of even a storyteller. But it happened and it all started with a woman, a tailor by profession, and her decision to say, ‘enough is enough’!

Called "the mother of the civil rights movement," Rosa Parks invigorated the struggle for racial equality when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama.

After a long day's work at a Montgomery department store, Parks boarded the Cleveland Avenue bus for home. She took a seat in the first of several rows designated for "colored" passengers.

As the bus Parks was riding continued on its route, it began to fill with white passengers and the driver noticed that several of the whites were standing.He stopped the bus and, asked four black passengers to give up their seats. Three of them complied with the driver, but Rosa Parks refused and remained seated. “Why don't you stand up?" shouted the driver, to which Parks replied, "I don't think I should have to stand up."

The driver called the police and had her arrested.

Parks' arrest on December 1, 1955 launched the Montgomery Bus Boycott by 17,000 black citizens. A Supreme Court ruling and declining revenues forced the city to desegregate its buses thirteen months later.

Today there is no discrimination and after that things changed so dramatically, that an African American who fifty years before would not have sat if a white man had no seat, finally sat in the seat of the ‘most powerful man in the world’.

All because of an ordinary woman who said, ‘enough is enough’!

In 1999, Rosa Parks received the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor, the highest honor a civilian can receive in the United States.

You may not receive any such recognition, maybe you won’t be joined by others, but every fight, lonely and solitary though it is, abandoned and mocked maybe by those who give in, is still one weary yet triumphant step towards creating a more just new world!

Fight On, Brave Hearts!

But you and me? Step In, Show Solidarity. Help Them Win..!
