Deepika Padukone And Laxmi Agarwal Teach Us The True Meaning Of Sorority On Femina’s Latest Cover!

Published

on

There’s nothing purer and more empowering than true sisterhood. The sorority has always stood up as anti-patriarchy and an alternative to the “normative”. However, toxic masculinity has tried its best to pull down this togetherness by marring them, like forever. The male gaze has its voyeurism of sorts that has either used phallus to “discipline” women or acid, as an intrusion of a sort.

However, we have strong women standing up for their rights against chauvinist men and society in general. We have an actor, producer and philanthropist Deepika Padukone and acid attack survivor and social worker, Laxmi Agarwal.

Femina Magazine Latest Cover

The cover stars for our latest issue, Deepika Padukone and Laxmi Agarwal coming together to show the power of sorority and how the bond breaks all stereotypical shackles of the society. However, it’s not just the spirit of sisterhood that binds these two beauties together. The two women come to share their struggles as women, and how they’ve stood up for every such thing. With Deepika Padukone’s latest movie Chhapaak (directed by Meghna Gulzar) on Laxmi’s life story, the to women form a bond that’s honest, and based on commonalities where both had to take something home from the other!

What’s More?!

The cover comes as a “chhapaak” of shame on men who see women as objects and “beauty” as vulnerable. The magazine cover defines the beauty of its own, in terms that are chimerical, yet substantiating. The cover holds the utmost importance as it embraces beauty in all forms.

Benevolent and empowered Deepika looks ethereal on the cover along with acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal whose gleaming and glistening like a flower. Both Deepika and Laxmi look prettiest as they laugh and smile like unwithered, immortal, timeless beauties, more like a vision to behold in white. The camaraderie that they share is an affirmation of happiness that’s not external, a hope that’s not material and a far-sightedness that’s timeless. What is even better about this concept is getting the real and reel life characters of ‘Chhapaak’ on the same platform and creating a positive aura everywhere.

We as “new women” and men with changed perceptions see this attempt as bold, beautiful and encouraging. The cover gives you chills, and at the same time make you look at women, not as objects but as humans. To rather look at them with dignity and fall for their smile, as pure as these two!

Final Thoughts

The bold actress not just marks her feminist impression on the sand of Bollywood, but also deeper in our hearts with her movie. However, not to mention how indebted we all are to Laxmi to be upfront about her tragedy and inspire us all to stand up for each other, to support women struggle, collectively, under growing sorority!

Paralysed Producer Who Makes Music With His Eyes

Published

on

They say love for Music never dies. Pone, a beat maker who helped shape the sound of French hip-hop in the 1990s has proven this right.


Pone, whose real name is Guilhem Gallart, is living with motor neurone disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The devastating and incurable illness that disrupts the control of all the body’s muscles. But that didn’t stop him from continuing his passion for music!
This video refers to his life as a pre-motor neuron as drowsy is characteristic of Pone’s humility; his career was far from falling asleep. 
He has produced hits like Art De Rue, Sans Rémission and the hairstyle Mystère et Suspense.

 

 

Pone uses Ableton Live to make music. When his family saw a documentary about Stephen Hawking, they got inspired and thought why can’t Pone do this too? They found the software Hawking himself had created, and soon they got a screen permanently placed in front of him. It had a small device which accurately mapped his gaze. The eye-tracking technology, according to Wahiba, is “open to everyone; some geeks just use it for hell.” (Source: Fr24news)

 

Music
By using this tool, Pone was able to start writing sentences that his computer would read aloud which was enough to translate his thoughts into the outside world. Slowly, he started using his eyes which could function like a mouse and then he decided to work with the material of Kate Blush. He recorded the sound of his own breathing machine and intertwined it with the powerfully symbolic melody and lyrics of his song Respiration. In August last year, he put the Kate & Me online for free which was free for all who wanted to hear.

Kate & Me’s success definitely opens new opportunities for people living with motor neurone diseases. Pone has opened many ways to people with motor diseases and made himself an inspiration for many.
