Sweet Nothings

I miss my old house. A two bedroom flat with a drawing room, dining room, and kitchen. It was big enough to fit a family of four. I miss the way all four of us used to plunge into just one bed and watch TV for hours together. How we never used to utilize the…

When we say “it’s just human behavior” we don’t consider the nationality of the humans we are referring to. Some might call it racist. But, in fact there is a huge difference between certain races and sometimes racism is not such a negative word to use. After spending 40 days of summer in the U.S…

The Race!

Feminism is something not many people understand. It’s been hailed, it’s been lambasted, it’s been termed as utterly stupid. But the thing is, both the sides are partially correct.

On one hand, where finding scant amounts of water on Mars invoked hopes of life on a distant planet, Chennai floods washed out all hopes for survival for southern…

Whenever we see a beggar on the street or at the signal, there is a sudden rise of moral conflict within us. Whether to give or not to give? A part of us knows that giving will only persuade the beneficiaries of our grants to beg even more, meanwhile, the other part shreds to pieces…

POWER AND DESTRUCTION ABOVE SANITY AND REASON!

This was a blow to the minority but dominating population of the Sunni’s in Iraq. They saw it as a power shift imposed by the American occupation, favouring the larger Shia population against…
