One fool proof way of polishing your creative process

When we read, our thoughts tend to circle around that content. The characters that we draw up for our stories start resembling the ones that we have been reading of. In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Ted Talk- That Danger of a single story, she says that as a kid growing up in South Africa, her imaginary…

Can someone really change?

When I look back, say 10 years, I don’t think I was a nice person. I was zero on empathy, didn’t believe in feeling too much or anything at all. I was in a relationship of convenience, or maybe in multiple relationships of convenience. A lot of what I let myself feel was “transactional”. I…

Thank God for complexity; else we wouldn’t have miracles!

“I don’t like the clean-shaven boy with the necktie and the good job. I like desperate men, men with broken teeth and broken minds and broken ways. They interest me. They are full of surprises and explosions.”  — Charles Bukowski There is something intrinsically interesting about complexity. I love complexity for its complexity. I like…

A Letter to My Future Child

My Dear Love, When you come into this world, it will be the most beautiful and the most scariest day of my life. It will be beautiful because you will make me so happy, but it will be scary because the thought of you ever being sad will make me sad. And my mind will…

Courage is Fear Walking

As children you always look up to your parents as the perfect human beings, they are your personal crisis managers, your A-Team. At midnight, when the monsters come out, they take out their magic wands and chase them away. When they hug you, the world is restored to a happy place. When they say, it’s going…

It takes a huge amount of self love to be worthy of the love that you think you deserve. One act of self love can turn the wheels of fortune in your favour. But like with most things that are worth it, this isn’t easy. Self love isn’t easy. To begin with it needs a…

Breaking yourself… Open

What I feel for you hides within my unguarded thoughts..  My guarded thoughts have become wiser with time..    The walls aren’t to keep you out,  They only serve to keep me together..    When you think I am closely observing you,  I am only looking at how I am moving into  yet another story.. …

Faith… a long way away from Home

Judge all you want, But that woman who doesn’t want to birth her own, Feeds the stray dogs around her apartment.   That man who maintains a spic and span apartment, Has been brought up in squalor all his life. So judge his minimalistic life. Judge all you want.   That woman with the hijab…

You are just right.

You put your head against mine, Suddenly I am grateful for how tall you are, Your forehead sits just right on mine.   Your fingers find me gently, They caress parts of me, I didn’t know existed.   You snuggle into my neck, And I am grateful for the way you fit into me.  …

That’s how I Feel..

When I take off my heels after a long day at work,  And my feet find even footing again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take that first bitter sip of strong strong black coffee,  And the world feels right again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take off my work clothes and snuggle into…
