One Step Forward and Two Steps Back

The week began on a very promising note with the headlines that read- ‘Supreme Court shatters glass ceiling for women army officers’. With this decision, the SC dealt a strong blow to the gender parity in the army. The army has been directed to give women permanent commission within three months. The celebratory noises hadn’t died yet when close on its heels came two extremely disturbing news. The first news spoke about the girls (almost sixty of them) in a

Love is in little things

After a tiring yet fun filled start to the week, here I am back again with the little snippets of my thoughts. Few days back it was Valentine’s day- the day of love and almost everyone, especially college going youngsters were completely in it. It left me wondering do we really need a day to express our love? And even if we do then why don’t we keep expressing it throughout the years, throughout our life? After conversations with few

50 Shades of Red

I spotted my first grey hair when I was 20. I was a standard Year 2 medical student; exhausted, overworked, surviving on strong coffee and the goodwill of nurses. Over the next few months, that one sneaky grey strand became two. Then five. I was ashamed. I mean, who greys at 20? To make matters worse, my friends had glossy, dark tresses, with nary a hint of silver. So every morning I spent a good 10 minutes, artfully arranging my

NARCISSUS FLOWERS

We women live many lives : of a mother , wife , sister , daughter , friend, boss , mentor and many more and in the process we tend to neglect ourselves and place all our desires ,wants and even health on the back burner, thinking that we will attend to them sometime soon. But that seldom happens, and eventually we burn ourselves out and our identity too . I still see myself as that 23 year old girl who

OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE

Saturday’s here again and so am I. With the Valentine’s day being the week’s flavour, I had expected this piece to be centred around it. But then something else came up and that took precedence over the matters of the heart. (I can almost hear you thank me for not boring you with one more sappy V-Day post.) The only thing that competed with the week of love were the Delhi elections. Ever since I landed back, that’s all I’ve been

365

Fireworks exploded over the Pacific Ocean, one mile away as we welcomed the new decade. The house was warm from the crackling fireplace and all the kids were snug in their beds. We looked around, with our too big grins. “Happy New Year darling!” and many versions of “I hope 2020 is kind to us”. When you live in an extended family like mine, there are so many brilliant moments of joy. When the baby “agoo”s or we’re in the

RESPECT OUR SILENCE

In my last post of 2019, I had reiterated that I don’t post about politics and religion because they are extremely personal to me. However, I also hailed the people who did. In my opinion and I quote, ‘they are way more knowledgeable than I am and are making the right noises; hoping to be heard above the din’. To my dismay, I realised that a few readers chose to ignore the latter statement and instead focussed their attention on

WHAT IS POETRY?
