In a world consumed social media trends there are those who choose to wander off the beaten path. Join me on this journey as I delve into the reasons behind my unconventional choices and share a personal tale of exploring social media platforms.
Swimming against the current:
My spirit thrives in being such an oddball and sometimes swimming against the current when it comes to following the trends and the trending! I'm also waiting to know if Thread is riding another wave of popularity, only to fizzle out like the Clubhouse.
Navigating the Podcast Buffet:
My hyperfixation to YouTube made me explore various podcasters, both national and international. Like that of a food taster, I was my own podcast taster! Tasting samples of podcast from a lavish spread, catering to all kinds of interests...tech, spirituality, geopolitics, history, economics, cinema.
While I was exploring podcasts to determine their palatability. YouTube's conveyor system (read recommendations) presented me with Ranveer Allahbadia's podcast with Union Minister for Women & Child Development and Minister for Minority Affairs Smriti Zubin Irani.
From Bland to Blissful:
Listening to the podcast, I experienced several wow moments. Regardless of one's political ideology, witnessing the sheer talent and mettle of Smriti Irani was a captivating experience. I highly recommend watching it, as it sheds light on the remarkable qualities and resilience of this inspiring woman. There were a few nerve chilling moments, but this quote struck a chord with me, resonating deeply.
"By her very nature a woman knows exactly what she wants to do, how she wants it done, it's just that whether she has decided to do it or not."
Such wisdom encapsulates the inherent strength and determination found within women.
Ever since I’ve watched the podcast, thought of sharing the quote with the world. Killing two birds with one stone, I made a post, also to revive my nearly dormant Facebook account. The post marks my attempt to reconnect with Facebook, now an obsolete platform, among my friends and acquaintances. Though I may have strayed from the popular Threads, it feels good to return to where it all began and engage with my online presence once again.
