2020 - A year of Learn --> Unlearn --> Relearn

First of all I would like to thank Ruchi and Dipika for choosing such an apt topic for this challenge. This post has given me an opportunity and a chance to introspect the good and not so good things happened in the year 2020. This is the year where I have unlearned things that has become obsolete and relearned by updating myself to keep abreast with new normal .

Being a Life and Emotional Intelligence coach I have learnt that whatever happens in life ,good or bad, take it as a pinch of salt. I remember one of my poem which I have written it long back:

When pain becomes too much to handle 

just remember one thing, there is nothing which is constant or which is there forever

There will be time when things will be fine, There will be time when you will be happy

And that's when you will realize those things were not worth your time

So be happy and don't let anyone overpowers you, Because it's you and only you who can justify your presence and worth.

So be positive and stay positive!

So lets begin this journey of introspecting ,but just remember of thing, never focus on Why, instead ask What would I have done or can do to make things better. So here are some of my learning which I would love to share while saying good bye to 2020:

Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives (FLBW) - Web Series Review

Cast : Neelam Khothari, Maheep Kaprro, Seema Khan and Bhawana Pandey

Streaming On: Netflix 

Genre : Reality Show

Rating : ✬/✬✬✬✬✬

Dharma Production

Netflix has come up with yet another reality show. After watching first episode of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives, I was literally asking my self " What am I doing with my life? But than I felt responsible as now its my duty to save people from not wasting their valuable time and get into something more constructive. 


The show revolves around the lives of four middle aged wives of not so popular Bollywood actors. Maheep Kapoor ( Jewellery designer) , wife  of actor Sanjay Kapoor, Neelam Khothari , well know actor  and wife of Samir Soni, Seema Khan (fashion designer) , wife of actor Sohail Khan, and Bhavana Pandey (owner of branded showroom) , wife of actor Chunky Pandey and mother of Ananya Pandey. 

The show gives sneak peak into their mundane lives. Do not expect any masala or controversies , that's why it is extremely boring. Surprisingly though the show claims to showcase fabulous lives of these privileged housewives it looked more pretentious. Inspite of being away from the paparazzi glare their life is no different from their more pepped Bollywood counterparts.
