Day 4 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021 Kindergarten taught me what good meant, so over time when someone asked me if I was a good girl, I took the term for granted and accepted the adjective. I was a good girl. Meaning, I thought good meant loyal, kind, helping, compassionate, humble. Someone who would stick to their valuesContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #4”

My Niece Sends Love
My biggest distraction for nanowrimo is this cute little bundle with an infectious laughter and a magnetic warm hug. Apart from her, there are a few other things that nanowrimo is doing to me. As I write, even I am surprised with the turns that my plot is taking. I am down to 23k wordsContinue reading “My Niece Sends Love”

Possibility Of The Impossible!
Sitting at the top of the mountain, In the open air, I couldn’t breathe in. Sitting near the holy pyre, The woods burning, I couldn’t even feel the fire. Sitting on the green earth, The flowers blooming, I couldn’t even reckon my birth. How can there be lack of water, NearContinue reading “Possibility Of The Impossible!”
