It was no surprise to anybody that ended up at a Diwali festival. I love India, or better put, I love the India I have built in my head from an overdose of Indian movies and music. In all honesty, I thought Diwali was a celebration of the Indian new year. Turned out to be the festival of lights, a celebration of Lakshmi, a Hindu god. It just happened to coincide with the Indian new year. Awkward.
I know the new year for a lot of people signifies a shot at a fresh start. We are four months into the new year and chances are the hopes of a fresh start for some people have already started to dissipate.

Believe people! He is indeed, very present. God is a God of... Continue Reading →

Hello people!!!!! It’s almost Christmas (insert frantic dance steps). It’s that time of the year when I get the most “lets hang out” request and I have zero motivation to go out. I love Christmas, it’s the only time I can stuff my face with food and not get the side eye from my mum.... Continue Reading →
For the first time in my life I was ashamed to be called a woman. It appeared like as a woman I was helpless, defenseless and weak; for the first time in my life I felt weak.
That’s not an experience one wants to have.
Growing up my parents were really obsessed with me attending a boarding school.I remember the early years were the hardest for me, I had never been away from my family and I wasn’t really getting along with people. I cried endlessly. Time after time I sent messages to my father claiming to be sick and... Continue Reading →
