Bigg Boss 13: Devoleena Bhattacharjee lashes out at housemates over kitchen duty

The Bigg Boss 13 contestants have all settled in and the daily chores have been distributed. But there is always trouble in paradise! In the latest clip of Unseen Undekha on VOOT, Devoleena Bhattacharjee can be seen lashing out at the housemates over kitchen duties.

Bigg Boss 13: Here's why Devoleena is not happy about her cooking duty

Devoleena gets irritated and says, “Starting tomorrow, I’m going to first get ready and then enter the kitchen. Whether people eat cold food, hot food or no food I don’t care.” When asked what’s wrong, she says, “From tomorrow everyone will have breakfast together only when it is completely ready. I’m not going to serve everyone separately.” Aarti provides a solution, “You make the food and keep it. People will reheat it as per their convenience.”

On hearing this, Devoleena opens up about how reheating is not the problem, “The problem is that once I make parathas, someone else eats extra and then the person who is late. I did that only with Shefali and called her 10 times to come and eat but she took time and then I had to make extra.”

Finally, Arti comes to the rescue as she says, “Your duty is complete when you make the parathas for everyone and keep them in the casserole. Then whoever eats extra, whoever doesn’t get the food is their lookout.”

It seems like the Bigg Boss contestants are starting to unwind and things are about to get more dramatic in the coming weeks.

World Mental Health Day: Alia Bhatt praises sister Shaheen Bhatt on launching Here Comes The Sun

On World Mental Health Day, writer and author Shaheen Bhatt has launched a mental health awareness initiative called Here Comes The Sun. The initiative will focus on increasing awareness of depression and anxiety through multiple online and on the ground campaigns, designed to initiate conversation and transcend the social stigma and discrimination associated with mental health.

World Mental Health Day: Alia Bhatt praises sister Shaheen Bhatt on launching Here Comes The Sun

A year ago, Shaheen released her debut book ‘I’ve Never Been (un)Happier’ with Penguin Petit, sharing a personal account of her battle with depression. The response to the book encouraged Shaheen to further her efforts on the subject and paved the way for Here Comes The Sun.

On October 10, Alia Bhatt took to her Instagram to praise Shaheen and wrote, “I am so so proud of you @shaheenb And of @herecomesthesunofficial You have taken something so personal and made it a symbol of strength and empathy. No one needs to be alone as they struggle with mental health, battling their own fears and anxiety. Sometimes all you need to know that you’re not alone!!! I’m here a 100%.. to start the conversation, to raise awareness and to join you on this journey, EVERY step of the way @herecomesthesunofficial #WorldMentalHealthDay.”

Speaking about the initiative, Shaheen Bhatt said, ‘I’ve lived with depression since I was 12 or 13 years old and for my whole adult life since then. As a 13 year old, I really couldn’t understand why I felt the way I did. As the years went by, it got progressively worse and I ended up isolating myself from my family and friends. It was a long time before I could finally admit to myself that I needed help.I truly believe that growing up, if I had had access to the kind of information available to us now, or if I had the opportunity to connect with people who understood what I was going through,  the journey would have been a little bit easier, for me and everyone around me. I would have been diagnosed sooner, gotten treatment sooner and maybe saved myself years of struggle. This is why I’ve started Here Comes To Sun, not only to increase awareness of depression and anxiety, but to create a community of people who will not only benefit from being a part of the initiative but will also act as a support system for others, on their journey to recovery.’

The page will see its first online campaign #HelloDepression and #HelloAnxiety rolled out alongside its launch. As the names suggest, the maiden campaign will talk about coming to terms with the illness and accepting it – which are the cornerstones of recovery. Talking about the campaign, Shaheen said, “This campaign will feature the personal journeys of different individuals, those in and away from the limelight and I hope it will encourage others to come forward and share their stories as well. Through this campaign, we hope to add some powerful new voices to the growing conversation about depression and anxiety, which will help address the stigma and discrimination around mental health.‘

She added, “With over 300 million people around the world living with depression, I wanted to channel my efforts to something that is more consistent and continuous. Here Comes The Sun is about hope. While it will never be a replacement to mainstream treatment, I want people to look at it as a positive and safe space, where they can express themselves without fear of judgement and make more informed decisions when it comes to their mental health. I want it to be a source of information, as well as a source of some much-needed humour and light-heartedness.

One year ago today – on World Mental Health Day I launched my book. Today – I’m launching another baby. Welcome to Here Comes the Sun. Here Comes the Sun is a labour of love and has been in the works for so so long that I can’t believe it’s finally here. ☀️☀️☀️ Here Comes the Sun was borne from a simple idea. The idea that we are not alone. None of us are alone in our struggles and journeys with mental health- we all have the same fears and we all hope for the same things. Here Comes the Sun is a friendly voice reminding you that you aren’t alone, it’s an effort to raise awareness about mental health, to start a conversation, and to help end the taboo and the stigma surrounding it. ☀️☀️☀️ Let’s journey together @herecomesthesunofficial
