How can we ever compete with these seemingly halo-adorned superhumans? It’s easy to think – if we believe the media, which also seems to echo our inner voices – that the world is full of several types of people, including those People Better and More Important Than Me, those damn Mothers Nailing Motherhood, and who can ignore that pesky group: People Skinnier and Richer Than Me. I am often so in awe of the people we feature and the great things they are doing, but I have also always had a strong belief throughout my life that…

They were halfway through the race, possibly winning, when Radha suddenly got her period. Still tied together, the twins dashed to the bathroom so Radha could change out of her bathers.…
