The silent bright student At the corner Beside the window Or right under their nose The one that is so damn attentive Yeah the ever ready one The one that never missed a lesson Oh the teacher’s pet I’ll make sure I won’t make a mistake Impress, don’t show Don’t let the fear overthrow The…

Breaking Taboos

No more awkward…

Periods are no more awkward to talk about…. And maybe once the girls are comfortable enough to talk….. Then one day the boys would start to talk about their problems too…… 🙂 Here’s how…… There is an upcoming movie in India ‘PAD MAN’ based on a person who takes up the challenge to make affordable…

What periods feel like?

The title is too obvious….. But this the summary of what the girls and women feel….. You might feel different from what I write….. But then it’s just a summary And we all are unique…. Menstruation covers nearly half of the life of a human female. Seven days a week, every single month. That is…

The Bloody Talk – Curio

I have lived most of my life in an undertone. The secluded one. The weird one. I have my own self-created restraints. But there is one thing that helps me escape my own aura. That is when I write. When it comes to periods, I feel every single person on this earth becomes a reflection…

I won the toss !

When I was young I was told to plant a tree on every birthday so when I die, I’ll die in a garden. I have decided to plant an idea, so when I die, I’ll die in a different world.

Midnight Memories

Every night when reality hits me hard in chest And I wake up all sweaty and breathless. My mind warns me that you are about to go And then realizes you are already gone.   My fight begins with my brain, As I try to sleep again, To be in a world, where you still…

Sketching Vamoose

  Last year while I was away from my writings and creativity, I was under total isolation, away from my city, in a room, with my books and studies. My escape from all the pressure was doodling my tiredness on parallel lined sheets. For you it might be just some sketches for you, some not…

Art-file Nostalgia

Was cleaning my bookshelf……. Thought how about sharing with you…….including the behind stories..in the captions….. Enjoy !!!        

Just sarcasm

There are 36 shades of human skin (Von Luschan’s chromatic scale)! The shades “white” or “black” scientifically means having a rare genetic condition,are we sure, we are reading the racism chapter right?

The Inescapable

When the ruins of undesired lands Are palpated with the charm of morning light The spasm of the wind dive into sands The life with eternal suffer swoop with the sight Now they don’t care, who cares for them For what they’ve seen are just tyrants But one who cares can care enough For a…

Twins…

My friends have been posting their street photography skills these days. Since I lack that skill, I tried to do something more creative. I found resemblance between photos taken in my city to that of the ones from someplace else on this planet. So I collected them. and here they are….. Note : Do not…

My Think-o-tainment list

These are some movies…..that made my head stop for a second and made me THINK. Like share and add your own experiences. Some are interesting, some had amazing direction, some are too simple but beautiful, some are inspired by real stories, some have beautiful acting, some have mesmerizing soundtrack, some would not let you leave…

Get Real !

For the first time, reality came in front of the eyes when Social science came as a course subject. We read…….racism is not something new, its been in the pages of history too long. There have been wars, now there is borders and tomorrow there’s going to be tension. Some will have freedom, some will…

The Shit !

As you might have realized from my last post, I am a changed person as a reader, listener, viewer or writer. I have experienced consecutive, multiple, deep failures. And had enough time to introspect and change. But the one thing I was incapable of changing was the scenario around me. I looked for what’s wrong….

The Realisation

It’s been a long time I put my thoughts out here cause I was looking for something that I can write about, to be honest. I waited for days to be struck by something INTERESTING and be able to put it beautifully in terms of literature. But the truth is that I have realized that…

The Insignia Postulate

Who are you?….Sorry! Didn’t mean to offend you…..I….ah…. meant….um….WHAT are YOU??? Being the sole organisms with a self conscience, we treat ourselves with the title of ‘WHO’. But the reality is ‘WHAT’. Do you have a tail…No?….Stripes?… Green leaves ?……Petals?……You sure….you’re not microscopic ?……..Well according to the ICZN, you are Homo sapien……..Hey wait…its not done…

Getting PERSONAL

The basic instincts of  being a human are repeatedly trying to uncover some of the most unrealistic phenomenon on this planet. And surprisingly getting PERSONAL is whats gonna change the game. I know you don’t have the slightest idea of what I am saying. But…..see! Getting personal is what makes the real you, not the…

The Breakfast Club

There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food. I belong to a country where every DAY belongs to a God, and thus each day calls for a religious charity. Food, clothes, celebration, etc. But yeah…now, this scenario is concentrated only to the major charity festivals, like Makar Sakranti, Pongal, the…

The Curio Theorem

We are trained in this society to reject anything that we do not understand….. So, don’t feel heroic that you just rejected some philosophical bullshit. You didn’t! Cause this ain’t some philosophy I am writing about, some inspirational kick-ass blog to boost the way you see the world. No! I am writing about a conclusive…

A creative escape

The search for the perfect word often makes you end up with a twisted tongue, or what you say, “I’m Speechless!” It is an art to end up with things which were always avoided, without letting the people realize that you regret it in the deepest parts of your brain. That is what we call,…
