The diary entry of a refugee

28 November 2015 Saturday It was just when I thought that our wandering days were over, and the house had started to feel like a place we could call home. Even though ammi was still missing and it had been a week since they said it’ll take forty two hours to locate her. I was…

All the bright places: A Book Review

In a manner similar to how I start reading most books, (snatching them from my friends when they’re in the midst of reading it) I finally found a book that had me engrossed in it from the first to the last page. “It’s not what you take, it’s what you leave.” The book is written…

Before I die I want to______.

To anyone facing life’s bullshit,

Fellow suffering human, I know you’re going through a hard time, and I’m more than aware that telling you it gets better with time won’t change the pain that the present bears. I realize it’s easier said than done but I ask of you to not let this world make you bitter, not let the…

So, tell me about yourself?

*Cringe* This is the most frequently asked question that you will come across in your entire life, starting from first grade all the way up to…Well, till you’re pretty old. More often than not, you’ll never have a reply to this. Instead you just wish they’d asked you to do math sums instead, at least…
