You know what I like about April? Well, for starters there are lots of things I don’t like about April – it is the month after my birthday month so it is mostly a sobering month. Like, it’s the month when I take stock of my life and think “what next”. But, here are some of the things I LIKE about April: first of its AAM SEASON, people! Did you get your Aamasutra on yet?

Before we begin, can we collectively take a moment to congratulate Serena Williams on her pregnancy! 👶 Currently, five months into her pregnancy she has announced to be on maternity leave for the rest of 2017 – and rightly so! That makes her two months pregnant when she won the Australian Open back in January! 👏
So, what’s in-store for this month’s packet of party mix… dig in to find out!
First up, Snapchat! We talk about the alleged half assed comments made by app’s founder and CEO Eric Spiegel about India being ‘too poor’ – this got a lot of people riled up. Well, for starters Sweety’s kinda has had a love-hate relationship with this app in the first place so how does this bit of news sit with us.
Next, we talk about the doctor’s strike that took place last month in Mumbai. Shout out to listener @MasalaChaiOnTheRocks aka. Vaishalee for making us aware of this story!
Then, let’s take a moment to admire the sheer ballsy-ness of Saffiyah Khan, who showed us what it looks like to have grace under pressure.
Moving on, to the story on new serum-like contraceptive (with a ‘chocolate-like consistency’), which is being developed for men. But are there any takers? We talk about why major pharma companies don’t dig this too much.
In #EarthHour news, we have the story of a 9-year old who is filed a case against the Indian government for failing to do enough to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Considering that this nine-year-old, Riddhima Pandey, represents a generation who will finally inherit this earth and bear the consequences of the climate policies in effect today – helps put this in perspective.
On our Hollywood & Bollywood segment, we talk about the lead zeppelin that was the Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad.
Look out for our Word of the Day on our Love Gyaan segment: Breadcrumbing. Find out if you have been at the receiving end of this trail?
