Elusive search for THE ONE

Love is joy, love is pain, it gives you wings and that glint and glow only love can explain. It’s tricky; sometimes sticky too. Love is everything we’ve heard of it and then some more. Most of us are looking for love but only a few are fortunate enough to find it. Sometimes we are in love with the idea of being in love. We’ve been in it for so long that we are afraid to step out of that

EACH FOR EQUAL

Equality is the soul of liberty, each of us need to understand the underlying hidden fad, equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally everyone’s different needs. Equality, gender parity, feminism, are not luxuries to lightly cast aside, they have approached depths in human mindset beyond imagination. Fueling the flame  to vanish the stigma of inequality, being anxious to be equal is a perpetual threat to status quo, the sentimental error of women being treated inferior has gained

INDIYAAH INDIAA- BLEED BLUE FOR OUR GIRLS

When it comes to TV, we’ve always had two ground rules- that we’d only have one TV set ever and it would never be in the bedroom. Consequently, who gets to watch or what we’ll watch, is decided either by calling dibs on a favorite or consensus. Usually there is a peaceful resolution and crisis is averted. But since the last one month, with all three of us working out of home, the TV remote has become a much-coveted commodity.

INVEST IN INTUITION

Last few weeks have been very disturbing not only for me but for a vast diaspora of people who still have their faith in humanity, who still believe that we all are equal beyond any barriers that separate us on the basis of colour, creed, caste, country, customs and cultures. These all dreaded words from C can only be cut out from the basic moral fabric of our society by Compassion. We all are way more than the attributes attached

Maẕhab nahīṉ sikhātā

The year was 1984. I was seven. We still hadn’t moved to Delhi. It was a small town in Haryana, we lived in, where kids were sent to buy groceries from nearby nukkad markets. I remember coming home one day and telling my mum that the usual shopkeeper wasn’t there. My mum nodded absentmindedly. I kept looking out for him, but that shopkeeper never came back. The friendly, smiling turbaned fellow was now replaced by a sombre clean-shaven, short haired

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
