Barren

She’s the desert he left, For greener pastures. Losely tied weft threads, Dismantled their stature. Winsome eyes once bore, A dream now distorted. They saw a family of four, But her fertility retorted. Society labelled her ‘barren’, Restricting her existence. With falling tears she is laden, Asking God for repentance. Her shreiks reverberate, As She […]

A Joke

When did jokes become, An inherent hub of racism? Why do inane gender roles, Have to play a part in jokes? About equality you preach, Yet your joy lies in racist memes. His eyes are so narrow, you see, He surely has to be Chinese. An accent so very deep, Must be an Indian, I […]

Damsels in Distress of Social Media.

I don’t understand why some teens only stick to love & heart break poetry, particularly Indian teens at my school. It’s common to find so many wannabe poets setting up Instagram pages to only write on these two topics. It gets mundane after few posts & even cringe-worthy. This doesn’t imply to all new poets […]

India VS Pakistan

I think Indians are way better than Pakistani’s considering the fact that we’re all so diverse & straightforward. All our neighbors care about is hurling insults at us.

Equal rights were, without a doubt earned years ago but hints of suppression […]

The story behind a world record.

It’s a dream that many see yet few actually get the chance to achieve it. A common notion exists that only exceptional beings deserve something like this. Were the 4,500 people without whom this achievement of mine would be impossible really that exceptional? 14 November 2017, a day marked in the history of International Indian […]

The home away from home

My mother received a call from her friend yesterday. So, we’re at her place today. It isn’t grand but you can’t exactly call it average. Three chandeliers lined across the ceiling are intricate in design. There were other women already present when we got there. All of them stood up as we greeted them by […]
