How I failed in English and then Books saved me #WorldBookDay

Lets get a couple of things straight. I have always been a nerd. One of those people who took their class ranks and test marks seriously. Might not have shown in later years but deep inside all the more worried still. Story is extremely simple. I come from a Hindi...

A Juliet from UP and very much against the Anti-Romeo squads

Sometimes it takes a piece of rather uninspired writing to get your thoughts together. I have seen this to be one of my best cases when it comes to writing down my thoughts. When Shree Amit Shah announced the anti-romeo squads as part of his election promise, all hell...

Have you lost a parent? Gurmehar has.

In my defence I tried. I tried not to blog on the issue because clearly there is a lot of stuff already spoken on it. And a lot of it I agree to. But post 2016 I am a certified anti-national, blasphemous citizen of our country and I thought well ‘What the...

Am I woman enough? #WomenOfBlogging

A couple of quick things before we move on to the actual emotion behind this post. “Are you the feminist type?” – Also translated as ‘Do you hate men?’ “We need humanism and not feminism”- Just to clarify- Humanism has nothing...

Let there be light.

I take immense pride in the fact that I am extremely articulate. There can be brief moments of pause or silence while I am taking things in but mostly I know what to speak and at what time. It is this need to spell out all that was there in my mind that propelled me...

#UnWrapChristmas With Dreams

A few of us gathered together for Secret Santa tidings, divided by names and united through a common Christmas spirit of sharing. And it is in this spirit that we bring this blog chain to you. I am thankful to Ramya Rao for passing on the baton of spreading Christmas...

your faith is strong but I can only fall short for so long Down the road, later on you will hate that I never gave more to you than half of my heart When John Mayer wrote this song he wrote a piece of my life in his words. Imagine you walk into a room and pick up an...

Ambition is my Nirvana

Have you read the book Siddhartha? By Hermann Hesse? If you haven’t may I suggest pick it up now. I have a pdf I can lend to you any time. Idea of the book (in short) is that Siddhartha is an exceptionally gifted Brahmin boy who decides to undertake his own...

A free write *after ages* #MondayMusings
