The first time I acted out the role of a woman for a video, I was nervous how my father would react. He laughed his heart out and has been supportive every step of the way. My whole family is. Im blessed in that way

Dimple Pennington didn’t exactly hit the jackpot in the family department—she barely knows her four half-siblings, and her absent father is a people person who enjoys fraternizing with everyone but his own kids. But when she lands in a sticky situation that could lead directly to prison, help comes from a surprising, familial place. As Dimple and her siblings band together, they get to know each other for the first time as adults and begin to come to terms with the role their father might, or might not, play in their lives. The novel—Candice Carty-Williams’ second, after her acclaimed 2019 debut Queenie—is a big-hearted reminder that a messy family is still a family.
Talha’s Major Music Collab Hits the Right Notes!
I n a musical cross-border collaboration, Pakistani rapper Talha Anjum, one half of the popular Young Stunners duo, and Indian rapper Siddhant Sharma (whose stage name is Calm) have come up with creative and ferociously fast wordplay with a beat that slaps for their new song ‘NEVERMIND’. The single is split into the ‘Gumaan’ singer’s rap and Calm’s. The Pakistani rapper takes to the mic first and works his magic, then handing it over to Calm who spits fire into the track. The two-part song is tied together perfectly with Umair’s catchy beat.Sharma belongs to a rap duo as well — with his professional partner Abhijay Negi (stage name Encore ABJ), he forms Seedhe Maut. The pair is working to rev up the hip-hop scene in India. The Seedhe Maut official account quoted a line from the song in the comment section that Umair pinned. “Sampark” roughly translates to connection or communication.
