MAKE A BOOKMARK- DIY

Hello everyone! I was facing a dearth of bookmarks as I had lost mine and was having to do with whatever I had lying around in front of me, from keys to pens to sticky notes. So I decided to make this awesome bookmark with some inspiration from Google. This one is in the shape…

The multicultural phenomenon: Things only mixed kids understand

Inter-caste marriages in a diverse country like ours are not a surprise to come across and at the cost of sounding clichéd I could say “love surpasses boundaries”. What we fail to take into consideration is that when your parents are of different cultures, you, as their children face certain situations which nobody but people…

The lesser known.

A writer is best known by his works, whether he be a beginner or a well-known writer. We, as readers, have put quite a few of them in the category of “well-known”, “loved”, “recognized” and even “extra-ordinary”. However, it also would not be a wrong statement to say that some of these writers are well…

The F-word

In today’s day and age, feminism is all the rage. Being a woman, I would say that it is the need of the hour. However, feminism as a concept has become more of a weapon than an ideology, courtesy to people who use it to get their way. Feminism, first of all, is NOT about…

How English changed my life

Whenever I meet someone new, the conversation or the “small-talk” always leads to that one question- “what are you studying?” I say very proudly “Masters in English Language and Literature” which is followed by a not-so-subtle “ooh” by my interrogator, with the question “You have to read novels right? I bet you don’t have to…

Through Gothic Pages…

The word “gothic” is not all about black clothes and noir looks, as the present day, so-called, “pop-culture” has led us to believe. There has been, and still is a time when the word “gothic” illustrates a combination of horror, death and sometimes, romance.  Gothic literature has been a vital part of that. Gothic literature…

Myth-ified

“And so Yudhishthira was allowed to enter heaven with his faithful dog”… Growing up, we have all heard the tales of mythology told by our mothers or our grandmothers. But, in the new age mythology has somehow lost its hold among the children as “bedtime stories” are slowly being replaced by “bedtime video games”. So,…

Love

“Love”- such a beautiful word and the feeling of being in love is something we all experience at certain points in our life. When we love our parents, our pet, our relatives, our siblings, our friends….. But wait!  There is a catch! The concept of “boyfriend” and “girlfriend”. Yes, I think you have probably guessed…

To Mornings and Beyond

Majority of us admire the legend Mr. Amitabh Bachchan but very few of us might remember his iconic dialogue from the movie “HUM” where he elaborates on the type of people this world is filled with, in his drunken self. Well, I’d like to slightly alter the dialogue by saying “the world has two kinds…

Pitch Black

Have any of us ever thought how the world would be without our eyes…

Ambivert… you might be one!

So I am an Ambivert. For us it’s like being on the divider in a busy street they are stuck between deciding which road to jump on to. Life is a different experience altogether. We cannot decide whether we want to be interacting with people or running away from them. Loneliness is our friend and…

Of Books and Bookworms…

“The soft pitter-patter of rain drops, coffee or a nice cup of ginger tea in hand, the fresh smell, tingling every sense as you slowly take a sip and feel a sudden awakening, and your favourite book in hand” the above scenario is not unfamiliar with book-lovers everywhere. Books are our most loyal friends and…
