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 […]

Colors

All the colors she’s living, Black, tangerine & pink. Is his majestic giving, For as long as he lives. Once death meets man, She’s stripped of her hues. Bangles taken off her hand, She sings the lonely muse. Pushing her into the fire, They send her away to him. Colorful bangles she admired, Now pierce […]

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. They can’t help but put the blame on India no matter what the situation be. They’re racist to the core. I’m pretty sure the points I mentioned […]

An Addition to my Art Supplies

The photograph also features my really old Rajasthani jewellery I used to wear as a child in fancy dress competitions & stage plays. So, this is a post specifically about my true love, painting! I recently bought ‘Winsor & Newton’ water color […]

The Golden Swing

She was very young when her mother left her. Her father was a very busy man, after all the job of being a Nawaab essentially involved many things from taking care of myriad of wives that come with their own set of children. Administration work kept him away as well. So, as the tradition goes […]

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 4 year old me says hello to Bharat!

There’s no way any NRI could have had a normal first trip experience to India specially as a child. The sight of a Rickshaw would make me jump with excitement. I’m pretty sure people around me must have been convinced that I’m crazy. An auto-Rickshaw ride was far more bumpy than I expected it to […]
