Waiting for dawn.

The world fell quiet this year,Like the forest, when the night comes near.But, we didn’t get sunlight this year,We were stuck in a dark place, surrounded by fear. But, there were things I learnt,About myself, about this world.I tried to look at the glass as half full,This year was something new,And the ride was far from dull.I’ve grown twice the […]

Premonition

A short story… The last of the suitcases were stuffed in the backseat and the car door was closed. Naisha went over to the front, moved over some of her belongings to make some place and sat down. Her father was already in the driver’s seat, he looked at her eagerly and asked, “So, you ready?” Naisha nodded happily and […]

A Dying doom and the ultimate imagination.

Thomas More wrote a book called ‘Utopia’ during the rennaissance period. It was about an imaginary island somewhere in America, where there were no social disparities, no blind faith, only peace and friendship. No such island exists till date, does it? These social barriers still prevail. Privileged people on one side, and the underprivileged on the other. So many people […]

The Categorical Imperative and 2020

Immanuel Kant was a famous philosopher, well proclaimed for his theory- The Categorical Imperative. This theory is a deontological form of ethics. What is deontology, exactly? Well, deontology is a theory created by multiple thinkers stating that, we shouldn’t act without thinking about the consequences, (here’s the catch…) but instead we should act according to our own personal set of […]

The Things We Hide…

Secrets as dark as the night,Regretful pasts locked in their cages and trying to take flight.Hopelessness trapped away from everybody,Just like the dark side of the moon,Our dark side nobody can see.Cowardice cloaked by a thin veil,While some others have blood red courage hidden beneath.A tender heart,Covered in steel.Memories that age,Like the dried autumn leaves.Happiness soaring through the blue sky,Tears […]

Cliff…

Look at the purple sky,The streaks of orange,Clouds passing by.Standing at the precipice,Staring at the rock bottom,I don’t dare look at the beauty,Too scared to shatter my thoughts,I don’t look above me.That’s what we miss,When we think about falling.We miss vibrancy,When you’re too busy to wonder,About how you’re alive,Too lost for the vast sky.Too self involved and you don’t know […]

Books and infinite loyalty…

Ahhh books, to be among them can be compared to simple bliss such as walking through wet grass, and breathing the pleasant scent of moist earth.Both of them, give me the same pleasure and joy. Books can certainly be called friends, the best kind actually. In my book- Keya relationship, I’m the listener. As it talks about feelings and emotions, […]

The Fault in Our Stars book review.

So, I recently read the book, The Fault in Our Stars. I know many of you may say, “whoa! She hadn’t read it till now?” Yeah, I haven’t, because I avoid books filled with deep emotion, I don’t like books that force me to come face to face with these. I usually read books full of action and humour, even […]

New opportunities…

So, some children in my school have started this new initiative. They’ve started a newspaper. And, when I first heard of it, “yay!!” Were the first words to enter my mind.I tried to get all the information about the newspaper, one thing led to another and I ended up giving a few of my poems to be published in the […]
