The Twisted Fate

Of all questions impregnated with ambiguity, one of the most baffling ones has to be the one that goes along the lines of “why are you the way you are?” and more often than not, the answer lies somewhere in between habit, and habitat. “It’s a boy”, said the doctor. But it would only be [...]

Memories

They are witness, Witness to the times, Which defined our existence. Brimming with bliss And embracing sorrow. Tales as old as time, Defining time itself.   Witness to days of a carefree sky, With the sun shining bright. Spent building sandcastles of emotions. Of a childhood, Watching the sun set by the beach With smiles for stars in the night.   Witness to days with grey skies, And hopeless nights When paths were caving, And life [...]

#metoo – a rallying call to end sexual violence

Social movements are both fascinating and frustrating, taking a life of their own: they survive in chants of pithy slogans, find coherence in heated debates and, sometimes, just sometimes, culminate into a brilliant moment of reckoning of an idea whose time has come. Social movements are interested in the toughest kind of progress there is [...]
