Isn’t it Funny?

Isn’t it funny How every minute a person dies And somewhere someone crumbles, Succumbing to the grief, And yet million others probably had  The greatest day of their lives. Isn’t it funny How cruel words roll right off our tongues and into the abyss of insecurity Acting as a dagger to another’s  Already crippling self esteem. Isn’t it funny  How we…

Urbanique

  Dull yellow buildings, musty air Smell of sweat, stenching dreams Sleepless nights, ochre mornings Windows collapsing on each other Like bodies in a metro Shirts sticking, eyes aching What are they searching for ? I can’t fathom whether they are happy or sad Or just surviving Long rides on hurrying roads Smell of smoke brings you home I count…

A note of hope.

“ “Hope” is the thing with feathers  That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all.”                                     ~ Emily Dickinson During this pandemic, where we all are sitting at home, where festivals don’t feel like festivals anymore, trying to battle several things at once. This one’s for you. A note of hope. I…

Widespread Misandry on the Internet

“Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters.” ― Camille Paglia In today’s aggression of society and widespread knowledge, one often thinks about how females have been oppressed, rather openly, online. For…

IS PSYCHIATRY A PSEUDOSCIENCE ?

Diagnosis and Statistical Manual IV or rather the DSM IV has eight hundred and eighty-six pages filled with lists of mental illnesses. I cross off five. It’s close to impossible to not strike off even one of these disorders, so are we all mentally ill? Or do psychiatrists love to over-diagnose us? Don’t take it from me, take it from…

Should I raise my voice or stay shut?

There is not even a single female in this society who has not been looked back and stared at. Not even a single female who has not been body shamed for her body being too flat or curvy. And I say it with so much confidence because first, it has happened to me and second, I’ve seen it happening on…

Why Memes Are the Future of Every Industry

We love memes. I mean, who doesn’t right? If you are anything like me, you must be spending most of your day scrolling through dozens of memes, sharing them to your friends and commenting stuff like ‘lol I’m ded’ or ‘relatable lmao’. I never estimated the true essence of memes before the pandemic hit, after which I was forced to…

Beauty with Gumption

Thump! Thump! Thump! I could feel my weak heart beating against my chest in rapid succession and synchronization. My hands were jittery and shaking as the lay on my lap. Sweat beads erupted on my forehead and my neck was hot. My legs were moving up and down sending waves of ripples across the long silky fabric. The place was…

Is This How It’s Gonna Be

Is this how it’s gonna be? Living in a world where there is nothing else left to see. Positivity left without a goodbye, Everything is just a big whole lie. All we hear is humanity, But all we see is insanity. Laying awake in bed, Wondering how emotions are merely dead. Nothing seemed more dark, Happiness is turning into a…

Why Religion is Different from God

In a country whose very roots are deeply ingrained in the belief of God and Spirituality, it was impossible to not be affected by any of this while growing up. However, as I grew up, I understood the influence spirituality and, more importantly, religion, holds in our day-to-day lives. We live in a society where spiritual and religious leaders are…
