About the author


  1. It seems to me seeing her first picture and now that she clearly is using steroids and maybe some hormones, her traits got really masculine and just diet and exersice dont do that. She changed so much, she looked east-south ish asian in that first pic, not anymore.

  2. Well its good but she has lost what we call in Bengali labonno. She looks like man,infact she is more of a man than other real men.

  3. The fact that he supports his wife in something that Indian society seems unsuitable for woman and is together with her when other people are saying that she looks ugly and like a men, speaks volumes about him. Respect.
