    10 women in Indian television that were way ahead of their time - sans jhumka - kangan

    Long before the storm of gawdy sarees had hit the television screen, long before the ever-distressed protagonist would adorn herself in 1 kg sindoor, 5 kgs of gold, and multiple layers of make-up while bawling her eyes out to the deity, long before the bad girls made husband-snatching their only career choice, Indian television had some really promising dreams to sell to middle class Indian women. While the 2018 heroines turn into house flies, get coaxed into marrying 7 year old kids – which, to me, is borderline pedophilia – our big fat television screens of the early 90s, pleasantly,  were the rendezvous of headstrong, opinionated women determined to make something worthwhile out of their lives.  Here are 10 such portrayals that made our day, back in the day.

    Envy evoking paychecks of these TV actors would leave movie stars wanting for more

    From its introduction in the late 70s to early 90s, television was snubbed as the less glamorous younger sibling of the big screen. Only those who couldn’t make it to movies would feature in serials and hardly were looked as at celebs. The notion was shattered when Ekta Kapoor joined the business and remodelled the art of soap opera.

    Oh! The Golden Days Of Television - You Know You Loved All Of These #Throwback Thursday

    Well in a world of main casts getting voodooed into houseflies, or coming back to life hours after a head shot, we can only reminisce over the golden days of television when stories appealed to the regular brain a lot more, despite the absence of glittery sarees and maddening backdrop scores.

    OG #SquadGoals: From ‘The Golden Girls’ to ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’

    2015 was the year of the celebrity Girl Squad. We’ve gawked as Taylor Swift and her gang of supermodels strut in combat lingerie in “Bad Blood,” admired Tavi Gevinson and her precocious and talented group of young feminists, envied Lena Dunham and her real life Girls, and Instagram-stalked Man Repeller Leandra Medine and her #GirlBoss clique. It appears that female friendships — and finding a sisterhood of your own — has never had a stronger or more media-hungry moment, but even before hashtags existed, female friendships were prominent in pop culture.
