"Women aren’t like faucets that one twirl, you turn them on and everything gushes. It takes effort."


"Our little satellite reached Mars because it was called ‘Mom’. If it was called ‘Dad’, it would still be circling around the Earth, but not willing to ask others for direction."


"Woke up, weighed myself, cursed Earth’s ruthless gravitational force, contemplated living on the Moon, or going to the gym, ate pancakes instead."


"Lemonade? When life gives us lemons, we make them into talismans threaded with chillies, hanging on our rear-view mirrors."


"It’s very liberating to find that if you crack the first joke, the world will laugh with you. If I had known this when I was younger, I would have had the bikini body and the brains.”

"Want to eat meat? Go ahead. And if someone has a beef with that, then hold your ground. Don’t chicken out or there really will be egg on your face!"


"We may have potholes roads, but at least we have many people willing to travel with us on them."


"Before the world even knew Kimmy existed, we had the famous choreographer Saroj Khan who could certainly balance a tray and a cup of tea on her bottom if she tried, not that she ever did. She used that bit to sway gloriously and teach others to do the same. Just like our politicians, I am bringing this up to prove that anything anyone can do, we Indians could have or have done it earlier and better."


“Go out there! Sweep a pavement, plant a tree, feed a stray dog. Do something, anything; rather than just using your fingers to tap three keys and destroy 600 people’s brain cells in one shot.”


“We Indians are a strange race; we send MOM to Mars, but listen to mom-in-law and look for the moon.”
