Love & Always Love 🌸

Because once upon a time, when all my stars were breaking down, a moon lightened up my sky. 
Once upon a time, when a selfish alien gave me a heartbreak, an angel taught me to fly.
Because when I lost all my reasons to fall in love anymore, he came from nowhere & settled my shattered world.

Love & Always Love 🌸

Towards A Better World

Whether a person has to be excellent academically, or should be an amalgamation of skills, practicality, intelligence, or should be interplay of EQ and IQ, the definition of skills prerequisite to success is still undefined. The ultimate aim of life is not to get higher percentages and to get into the college of your choice. The aim has to be bigger, and beyond the contours of the norms laid down by our society.

The Scar

Yes, I’m talking about the beautiful scar that we as women carry after the birth of a child through a C-Section. A C-Section is a beautiful story of a mother and the baby, where the child is so stubborn to come out, or it’s like the child loves the mother so much that they don’t want to leave the place where they spent about 9 months

Speak Up!

“Speak up”, she kept screaming but I couldn't. “Speak up”, she screamed again, yet no words came out of my mouth. I was mute - how could I tell her I didn't want to go to college to study medicine, that I wanted to become a youth counsellor? She would kill me. She worked tirelessly day and night for me. How could I break her heart by not doing the one thing she really required of me?

Speak Up!

Universe In A Boot

Since I was a little girl, I was taught to behave in a specific way because I'm a girl, to dream specific dreams that are only allowed for girls, such as taking a good degree - not to make a successful career, but to marry a good rich man with a high position in society, so I can live happily ever after.

A Pressing Need

Forget the negative press feminists have always faced. We are always deemed as angry, single and lonely women with 10 cats who hate men and are working very hard to challenge the position of men in today's society. When in fact, we are just a bunch of bomb-ass intelligent women and girls who are breaking boundaries and pushing for the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.

The Indifferent Humans

Why is that that in spite of sharing the same sky, the same sun rays, and the same air, we remain indifferent of one another? What makes it more unbelievable is that we hate some people just for a simple reason which is not even their fault! Why do we think that we are superior to others just because we are from a major religion and the other is not; or because we are straight and they are from LGBTQ+ community; or just for the silliest reason - for you being a man and the other a woman!

Pseudo Female Friendship Stereotypes & Why We are Ditching Them

We live in a time where female friendships are expected to be toxic, bitchy and/or competitive. That is the power the media has in shaping perceptions, something I think they take very lightly, or not? I do not mean that some women are not bitchy or toxic or competitive sometimes BUT these characteristics are not the defining factor of what female friendships should be like.

A Letter To You

I know at this point words don’t help because they can’t change anything but right now they’re all I have. So I’m writing to you in the hope that my words will take your pain away, and if it can’t, I hope it at least makes you forget – for a brief moment in time…

It's all about the next step

Everyone encounters bad phases in their lives. There is no one in the world who is altogether living a perfectly happy life. Everyone has his or her own set of problems. There are many people who are born with a silver spoon but it doesn’t mean that they’ll not encounter any hardship in their life. Survive today because life is all about the next step.

The old man's love

As everyone laughed insanely at their mobiles, an old man sat talking to a photograph. I observed him for more than an hour. He talked, laughed, cried and finally, saw me staring at him. He came to me and sat beside me showing his wallet. It was a young lady's photograph. Looking at me he said, “She is my wife in her teens. She used to be so hilarious all the time. Do you know what she said during her last hours!?”

A woman in a man's world

I have worked behind the scenes in the media industry for around 8 years and most of the people who do such kinds of work are mainly men. Once you start flourishing, you are automatically considered as "sleeping with the boss". I have heard that so many times, but the truth still remains "hard work pays."
