no.1 new delhi ladies’ detective agencies

‘We just want you to whisper in our ears, what you want our eyes to see. We aim to reveal the hidden truth,’ reads the website of Lady Detective India, one of the 3 500 detective agencies in New Delhi investigating cheating spouses. Private investigation is technically illegal in India, but this doesn’t stop the many women-run agencies from conducting investigations. With the easy access to (and temptations of) social media and mobile messaging apps, infidelity has been on the rise – and with rates ranging from 50 000 rupees (about R9 500) to millions of rupees, these entrepreneurial women are cashing in on spouses’ wandering eyes.…

the real reason women freeze their eggs

THE NURSE WAS methodical and comforting as she explained the process. Next week, there would be a session where we would learn how to inject the hormones at home. ‘There will be a lot of couples there,’ she said. ‘They will be actively trying to have a child. You should be prepared for that. Do you think you’ll be OK?’ That morning, I was single and 37 years old, almost precisely the average age at which women freeze their eggs, although I didn’t know that then. Of my close friends in New York, most did not have children, but a handful did. My friends’ babies sat on my lap while I fed them tiny bits of scalloped apples or read to them from my favourite children’s books. These things didn’t cause…

the vanity files

MAT SAYS… ‘Nude is not a colour’ In Grade 6, I attended a multiracial school for the first time in my life (it was also the first time I had ever lived among people of a different race to mine, or had to speak English). I was faced with many culture shocks – things that left me feeling baffled and a little bit like an alien. One of the first signs that hinted at this being a very different world to the one I knew was the fact that, at school, when the crayons came out in art class, there was a beige, peachy hue my classmates (and teacher) referred to as ‘flesh’. Clearly not my flesh. About five years ago, I visited a fashion pop-up shop where a pair of two-toned stockings…
