Well, Kartina Kaif is a total heartthrob and we just love her. There is no doubt that she is extremely gorgeous and makes our hearts skip a beat with her infectious smile.
I never make the same mistake twice …. I make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure ðŸ™ƒ
But if you thought that there was just one version of our dear Kat, you are mistaken,boy! Looks like we are surrounded by more beauties like her and we are very pleased to find one who looks exactly like Kat!

Meet Salmoi Chopra, a “bad feminist” as she classifies herself. She is currently a blogger and even though many might not know her, she is quite popular on Instagram with 219K followers. She is an actor and a traveller. And her Instagram account gives us a glimpse of both. But apart from all this, at present, she is making everyone go gaga over the fact that she bears an unusual resemblance to Katrina Kaif. And well, she does!
Part 2/2 The lesser she exposes, the more respected she’ll be. Because girls from good families don’t show skin. Which goes to say that girls who show skin – deserve it? And so days after we killed the men that raped India’s Daughter, we discovered there wasn’t just one of her. No, you may call her ‘fearless’ with pride but I guess it’s time you realize that we’re all, unfortunately, daughters of a nation that only wants fearless daughters in homes outside of their own. We take part in candle marches for someone else’s daughter and yet we cage our own. Nirbhaya. Haryanas Nirbhaya. Delhis Nirbhaya. North India’s Nirbhaya. Bangalors Nirbhaya. Mumbais Nirbhaya. You say it with so much pride, but what once felt like a salute to her now feels like a slap in my face. Her name was Jyoti.. but I understand, it’s my fault. It’s our fault for being born into a body with breasts & a vaginaâ€Š—â€Šboth of which solely accordingly to you exist for pleasure. Your pleasure, my shame? I understand, that you’re going to go to the furthest of your powers to take away her rights because you’re petrified of her strengthsâ€Š—â€Š because you don’t genuinely believe that the liberation & education of women is what will be the growth of our country, no, our women are sacred, kept safely behind walls, just like our goddess. I understand that this isn’t the end, this is just the beginning. And it breaks my heart to see that a lot more daughters in every corner of our country are going to end up ‘fearless’, if you don’t understand this too. #linkinbio #educateindia #indiasdaughter #bethechange #saynotorape #freethenipple #womenempowerment #humanity #writersofinstagram ðŸ“¸ @m3anker
#Part1/5 “The man. That fucking found meâ€Š—â€Šapproached me because I was an abusing, crass girlâ€Š—â€Šthe man that thought it was CUTE, telling me it wasn’t “okay” to swear anymore because now I was his girlfriend. I will never wrap my head around that. Men abuse each other all the time, you’ll watch a film like Omkara where every man starts & ends his sentences with abuses… You loooove All India ‘Bakchod’, but when women do it – it’s wrong? Your ears start bleeding! Because women are suppose to be classy and elegant and pure. But what if I’m not pure? What’s being someone’s girlfriend got to do with it anyway? Am I supposed to change who I am and fit into the criteria of a fucking girlfriend? So its okay to pick up a girl that uses swear words, but once you make her your girlfriend, lets filter that shit out because “it was fine back then, we weren’t together”. Fuck that. It’s a different thing that I ended up staying in that relationsip another year after ‘the talk’ happened bcos I was naive, but really.. Fuck that kind of love. That’s not love. That’s double standards. I’ll abuse when I want, how I want – & if you as a man don’t appreciate it – don’t try to get into my fucking pants. Your hormones are so high when you see a hot girl that even her fuck,shit,bitch words sound like prayers to you, her mini skirt looks like a lehaga, but a few months down the line, it’s do this, wear that – Yuck. So I am not girlfriend material. And baby, I am proud of it.” Continue reading at www.salonichopra.in Link is up in Bio! #youowneverythingthathappenstoyou #beyou #selflove #loveyourself #toxicrelationships #theslowlife #love #girlfriendmaterial #thecrassgirl

Don’t tell her what to do my love, she’s only being alive. Don’t tell her what to do my love, just because she thrives. Don’t tell her what to do my love, she isn’t stamped or owned, don’t tell her what to do my love – didn’t see you complaining while she moaned. Don’t tell her what to do my love, this isn’t about wrong or right. Don’t tell her what to do my love, are you scared she’ll put up a fight? Or are you scared, that she just might? Her dreams are bigger than your fears, she wasn’t born to be owned, stoned or boned. She’s rebellious, she’s loud, she’s in your face – she’s not bounded by colour, height, boobs or race. She’s strong, she’s feisty, she’s full of flaws, she didn’t ask you to build them, so don’t ask her to live by your laws. She’s a piece of art, shes hard working, and she’s a mirror to your self-doubt, is that why, baby, she’s always so talked about? You whisper names, you make up stories, you’re scared she’ll prove you wrong; so you’ve stopped your rumours at nothing, not even her thong. Don’t tell her that its for her own safety, don’t tell her not to want more – while the men that touched her & caressed her, are left outside to roar. Don’t tell her that this is all her fault, you quietly shifted the blame. The smoke may be coming out of her mouth, but he’s the one that lit the flame. Her legs were open, or she’s drunk at a bar, oh for fuck sakes she wasn’t any safer when she sat behind her dad that night in the car. Dont tell her she’s out of control, when they’re selling her body at the price of her soul. Don’t tell her she’s like your sister & daughter, when you know they’re selling acid over the counter, like they’re selling water. Don’t tell her what to do, my love, she’s more than just a cultural whore. Yet the only reference you could make to prove your manly hood is when you claimed to have made her sore. Don’t tell her what to do my love, one day she’ll shine & make you proud, that is, if you don’t wrap her body in a shroud. Don’t tell her not to move, emote or feel my love, she isn’t indeed a Tree. Teach her instead to say Fuck You to the world, because well behaved women, rarely make history. Photo @zainaliphotography

â˜€ï¸? â?ï¸? ðŸŒ™ðŸ’› Talk to me today. What’s on your mind, kids? Monday blues? Motivated? Are you happy? I hope you are. It doesn’t take a lot to smile through it all. This ones back from my first beach sunset in adelaide. By far my favorite day so far… I felt like I was on top of my shit – so every time I’m having a downer, I try to remember that feeling, breathe it back into my system.

“As an actor you spend all your life trying to do something they put people in asylums for” – Jane Fonda said that. Then Leonardo Dicaprio went on to say how he got paid to be somebody else & it was a great outlet because he wasn’t sure of who he really was, it varied every day. Katherine Hepburn considered it the perfect idiots profession. After all, even a child of age 4 could do it, she said. Jennifer Lawrence says people often ask her how she stays level headed, & she wonders why wouldn’t she? She’s not saving lives. Doctors save life’s & firemen run into buildings on fire and we’re just making movies. It’s stupid. Marlon Brando says acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. Meryl Streep, a woman I really admire, says curiosity is the essence of her acting. She’s curious what it would be like to be you. Rachel Weizs once said when people find out she’s an actress, she sees the ‘Whore’ look flicker across their eyes. Miranda Richardson said “Insecurities, commonly regarded as a weakness in normal people, is the basic tool of an actors trade.” And Benedict Cumberbatch, a man like that I think rarely exists in a world like ours and his ability to make you feel is.. commendable. Claims he has real acting scars. My point being? No, I don’t think actors are “perfectly normal human beings”, I believe they’re highly vulnerable, over sensitive, occasionally lonely, quite neurotic, usually unsure, yet more self aware than usual. It’s true, we get paid to do something that people are put in asylums for. I don’t think I’m just an actor – I’d like to believe I’m more. I’m a writer & an artist. Im a human being with desires to change the world in more ways than I am possibly capable of, yet I am selfish on days where I look for peace of mind – but which great human that ever changed the world was peaceful? If you’re looking for inner peace you meditate & become a monk, or live in the hills, you don’t change the world. That requires a certain amount of unsettling, uneasiness within you. That’s not normal. But in a world where to be normal is to be conveniently ignorant, I’ll choose crazy any damn day.
Ain’t she beautiful?
I tried to think of something to say for this photograph for 3 days, and finally decided that I couldn’t.

And she’s BACK! She’s back in your lives as DJ Rave, throwing multiple bombs at ya in the form of potential life decisions, and she’s back in mine as @elenasparrow – we just spent such an amazing day together! Watching a movie & sipping our coffees walking down alleys we’ve probably walked on a hundred times before but never really stopped to admire it’s beauty before. Today we did. We also chose to say no to negativity & hate & anything that tried to destroy our vibe. Just a plain simple No, because often it’s really as simple as just walking away. You don’t have to make an effort to smile. It’s literally a muscle movement away. Smile first, then decide your feel. It makes all the difference in the world. I’m so excited about starting a PIEGON FREE LIFE with you from tomorrow (I got us both fish nets for our balconies. My pigeons PEE in my balcony. I know you think pigeons don’t piss, but you haven’t woken up to puddles of yellow water outside your room, have you? And it wasn’t me for sure. May have to check with the boys upstairs) You know how they say, an end is just a beginning? Well… I must learn to live without screaming & shouting at the pigeons, they really did help with my anger management issues, but maybe this is a new beginning to a calmer, more positive space that we can progress in! Thank you Aye, for adding so much happy drug into my life all the time. I know it’s been a tough couple of days, but you are surrounded and constantly producing so much happiness all over, that nothing & no body could destroy your vibe. This is all part of the journey. Every day, you’re learning to be an even better version of yourself and I am so glad that I have the opportunity to witness it. And come on, let’s just accept it.

When I’m asked to talk about one aspect of physical appearance – I can’t. It’s like asking me my favorite song – I could never tell you just one. I, unlike other kids, grew up with multiple ‘issues’ in my physical appearance. From head to toe, I always had some incurable, non stereotypical thing going on for me. Ichthyosis to Alopecia to Dry Skin – if it existed, it found me. I, unlike other kids, also woke up one day & decided to become an actor! Kids aren’t encouraged to become ‘actors’ unless they’re superficially beautiful, let alone kids with 101 imperfections – but I wanted to do it – regardless of my B sized Cup, my 5’4 height, my nose, or my skin. I’d always think, “what’s that got to do with anything? Acting is about portraying life & life doesn’t only happen to cover models – life happens to everybody. Everyone has a story to tell. I want to breathe those stories, and live in their skin – how does it matter what one looks like?” – little did I realize the world is made up of too many people who don’t want to see imperfection, or reality. A huge part of film making is about selling an unrealistic, perfect world to the layman. Glamour = Ignorance is bliss.. & yet I somehow managed to do things my way. The ðŸ”‘ is to stand your ground & believe in yourself. I always stood by my morals & decisions bcos I wasn’t their definition of ‘beautiful’ – I saw myself for my thoughts & my goals.. I saw people for theirs. That’s when I decided I’d encourage other kids to do the same. I wanted to raise better humans with beautiful hearts. I wanted to inspire girls to be more confident in their own skin, instead of shit like “this is my better side on camera”. Beauty to me was never skin deep. When my friends talked about scars on their flawless skin, I felt disconnected bcos I’d grown up with scales all over my body! So at an early age I learnt that I liked having my hair messy, my clothes torn, and my teeth crooked. That’s what made ME happy. It felt comfortable. Eventually, life will go on; you can either love it, or whine through it, but it goes on; the ðŸ”‘ is to find beauty within – Always remember, skin is just a layer that protects the magic within. âœ¨@loco_latte
She even looks like Nargis Fakhri!
The beauty industry is a hoax. It’s main business is your insecurities. It feeds off of you. Magazines are all about focusing on how you’re “not OK” & they can help make you “perfect”. It’s ridiculous that there are billionaires running businesses out of your body issues. Lowering your self esteem while making you believe that you’re somehow getting “better”. It’s okay to want to look sexy. Of course. I’m horrible at flirting and portraying sex – but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to try. This photograph for an example was an attempt at one similar thing. To look seductive. I decided I wouldn’t cake my face with make up, OR even do up my hair, & try to keep it as natural as I could. Because feeling/portraying sexy is wonderful – but letting someone else decide your sexy – is not. You’re sexy when you’re comfortable. You’re sexy in your wheat skin tone. A pimple can’t stop you from being fucking hot. Nor will a bad hair day. You don’t have to have the perfect body, the perfect toe nails. That is a load of bulshit that they sell you, just so that you can become insecure enough to then try to fix a problem within you that never existed to begin with. I have a stomach. My fingers aren’t “beautiful” in the way they’d say they are. My skin isn’t like butter. My hair is frizzy. But LOOK! This photograph is a perfect example of why you mustn’t give a shit about what society tries to tell you. Or sell you. You don’t need 100 products to look/feel good about yourself. You already look like a cover girl. Don’t get lost in the crowd. Before you know it, you’ll be lost in the world of Beauty Magazines. Honestly if I had to dedicate my time reading, I’d read things from @berlin.artparasites & @elephantjournal & @chakabars & if I were to be inspired by women, it would be women like @lenadunham @sophiabush & @amy__schumer . Remember that we become what we surround ourselves with. So surround yourself with people that tell you you’re beautiful first thing in the morning. Read good literature. Think good thoughts. Learn about life & humanity. THATS Sexy. PC @amit_agarwal25
Doesn’t this remind you of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’?
En Route Phi Phi. PS: this is the floating walkway that I spoke about that day! Also, my foot is healing. Thank you my instalovers for all the love! ðŸ˜˜ #phiphiisland #phiphi #traveldiaries #birthdayweek #love #Krabi #TheSlowLife
I’ve been wanting to do this from the moment I got to Phi Phi. And I finally did it today. Kayaking is extremely interesting because you see people smoothly drifting through it around you, while you struggle to go straight for just 5 seconds before your kayak is heading in another direction all over again!! The trick is to be patient, to work simultaneously with water instead of fighting it. To cut through it, but with love. And to never rush. If you cut right, your speed automatically will decrease. Unlike man made roads, that are stagnant and do not move, water is unstable, has motion, and a mind of its own. Kayaking isn’t like driving a car. You are not the only one in control of the direction you’re headed towards… you must remember to work with the water & not against it. Because once you’re out there, in the middle of the deep blue sea – there’s just you, your kayak, and the sea. You’ve gotta share its vibe. The whole process requires so much patience that when you finally get it right, it’s just so calming & peaceful to drift your way through. If you’ve seen Moana, you know what I mean when I say it’s like the Ocean has chosen you. But hey, sounds exactly like life, doesn’t it? You see others lives & wonder how they’re smoothly sailing through it all but that’s the catch – everyone’s struggling, everyone’s occasionally tired, some people have just figured out the trick to doing it well and made being alive their passion – and that’s why they enjoy the process while others struggle and curse their way through it. But in the end – we’ve all got to complete the journey and make it back – it’s up to you how you choose to live that journey. âœ¨ #kayaking #love #fun #happiness #phiphiisland #kohphiphi #traveldiaries #workoutmotivation #ocean #waterchild #theslowlife

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.” – Sylvia Plath. #wordporn #sylviaplath #author #thebelljar #goosebumps #foodforthought #lifehacks #limitedmind #desire #innervoice photo courtesy @zainaliphotography
She even reminded us of ‘Pashmina’ from Fitoor, wearing almost the same dress.
“I felt like I was going to throw up. My throat felt chocked and my insides were racing their way out. My mind scattered and my skin numb, but pain was never skin deep.. it seeped its way into my heart and broke it into millions of pieces. Exactly what I was afraid of. My heart was too ashamed to break for you, all over again. My heart that broke for you, 100 years ago, standing 10 ft away, before. For centuries we had been at war. Me against you. Yours against mine. This time as my heart shattered to the floor, it made no sound at all. It silently accepted the pain, sucking it out of my body and into itself, leaving me with nothing but pins and needles. I was ashamed of every weak step I took away from you, knowing that history was repeating itself – over and over again. Once again, somewhere in the world, Devika would fall in love with Ashfaq. Once again, their hearts would beat together. Zameena will resist, but Abhay won’t care about this world and it’s unfair ways. Somewhere, buried, a Jodha would allow herself to let the tears roll down her cheeks, for what else should one do, if not mourn for a life like ours? Loveless, dictated. Every time, their voice echoed in my head, every single time you tried to remind me of why we were worlds apart, my silly heart looked right through you, finding one of its own, unblinded by the lies they teach you in the name of God, and our hearts began to beat together. Little did it know it wasn’t about you, it wasn’t about me. This was a war I was too weak to win. This war between the devils, was no place for love to exist. For her who ran as fast as she could, for her who died, for her who fought till her last breath, for her, I swear, I tried. My legs are tired, and my eyes are sore – you chose to walk away, but I sure as hell was meant for more. So I pick up the broken pieces, scattered on the floor, leaving no trace of having been here before. No she must never know, that lives were sacrificed, and tears were shed, for there’s still hope that Taufeeq and Maya, will live to change the world instead.” – Saloni Chopra #writersofig #humanity #bethechange #love #lovestory #words ðŸ“¸ @photowalktd

Don’t give me a pen & paper. Give me a hand to hold & ground beneath my feet. Don’t sweep me off with words, hold me instead when I fall. Don’t kiss me all day, but hug me tight when I’m trying my hardest to leave. Don’t promise forever, I’m happier with today. Don’t ask me to bind you down with a contract. Don’t expect that to save us, or assure us. Expect me to fall in love with you, every single day, without being told to. Without reasoning. Without law. But with instinct. With the need to wake up next to you every morning. With desire. Its not that I can’t settle down. I’m not always on the run. I’m not scared. I’m just a thinker. I ask questions. I love love. What’s in my heart matters more than what’s in court. I’m going to have a love story that goes down in history. Because I can handle it. I can handle love. And pain. And happiness. I’m capable of crossing bridges & climbing mountains – but I can’t sit across you at a dining table every night. I don’t want to be your wife. I want to be your lover. Your partner. Your dirty slut. But I’ll look after you like a mother. I want to be your best friend. I’ll never be your better half, you are whole. So am I. I enjoy the thrill. The excitement. The anxiety of waking up every morning, & wondering if we’re still in love. Having to try. Knowing – love is all that’s holding us together. Not spoken vows, not legalities, not the social jazz. Just love. And one day, when I look at my daughter & son – I want to be able to raise them knowing they can follow their heart. In a world full of people telling them how to live & what to be.. I want them to learn from me, they can be, whatever it is that sets them free. I want them to grow into adults, wanting a marriage – not a wedding. To cherish life. And never take people for granted. I want them to feel with all that they have. To cry like they’ve never cried before, to love with all their heart & orgasm with their whole body. I want to teach them to live & not just breath… I – want to live. I want to be the change I wish to see. Sincerely, Every girl out there that deep down inside believes she’s meant for something a little more. #RunAwayBride
Hello Sonali, we still can’t over the fact that you look so much like Katrina Kaif!
Happy Independence Day my India. But also, Happy Independence Day Pakistan. Let’s not forget that once upon a time, we were one… and the borders we’ve drawn, are only man made. Somewhere here, your grandmother was born, and somewhere there, in the hearts of humanity, I am another you; I am another you. I don’t live on your land, but my land is the same too. The air I breathe, is a breath by you. I too have a heart like yours, stuck in a cage, mine too grows bitter, and bitter by age. I walk down the same streets, feeling like a victim in their eyes, sometimes I take a scarf and cover my head, I too live the same lies. I may not pray, but don’t you pray for peace? Because I hope for the same too… I have a dream, and I have a desire, burning within me is the same fire. I fall in love, and I too feel pain, when you tell me I’m not the same. I look the same, I swear my blood is red… I too cry when those nasty things are said. I want a life, and a love so strong, and it’s been next to me all along. A border. A line. I didn’t create this, and neither did you… But when I go to sleep at night I often wonder, if you think of being me, the way I sometimes think of being you? To Countries that were once united, I hope one day we can find it in our hearts to at least love once again. Patriotism to me isn’t about blindly loving and never criticizing your own, but instead accepting our flaws to become better with every passing day. To nourish and to grow. Isn’t that what Love is?

I went from being the kind of girl that ‘doesn’t get along with girls and only has guy friends’ till couple of years ago, to being surrounded by the strongest, wildest, kindest, most empathetic, loving, giving, caring women in this whole world! Thank you for showing me how incomplete my life was without women. Thank you for inspiring me, for always mothering me, for being there for me whether that’s 2 pm or 4 am – for never making me feel like my silly dramatic reactions to things are as silly as they really are, and, for being there on my birthday with me. I may be the luckiest girl in this world, filled with so much love. The past few days have been extremely overwhelming because I can’t stop counting my blessings. And I hope every girl can have women like you in her life while she’s growing up to show her how beautiful life really is. Girls aren’t always about bitching and jealousy and make up – it’s what a huge part of the world wants you to think they are, it’s what even WE think we are – but we’re so much more than that. We are sensitive and vulnerable and strong. Women, in all shapes and sizes, are conquering the world. Reaching their dreams. Supporting their families and caring far too much about the future of humanity. If you want to see how women talk, enter any clubs female loo on a weekend – you’ll see girls bonding over sanitary pads and fixing each other’s straps and sharing the warmest of smiles – some even drunk dancing like they’re childhood friends. Others wiping tears and holding back each other’s hair, reminding their fellow soul sisters that they deserve better. They deserve to be loved right. Women are magic – and I’m so proud of knowing a few such gems in my life. I love y’all.
