Maps for future dreams

As mirrors bend She lies upon the bed and travels in the spheres of mind weightless There is no sense in the rain Sliding down her face like silent satellites, tracing winter’s lonely sun. Moths perch upon her fingernails chewing up the dirt of days exposing stardust. Like the thump of an equine Echoes come […]

A Mother’s Prayer

When I was young, I used to live in a small house with my parents and my brother in a town called Landour in India. It is a small town surrounded by hills. We had a traditional lifestyle and lived with very little requirements. I remember often playing the game of I-Spy with my brother. […]

Reality Check

We all are in a Labyrinth of Dreams, Half awake. Optimists and pessimists in a realist’s fairytale. Living in a soap bubble, Reflecting the colours of our surroundings. Open books with invisible walls. We all want to sit on top of a rainbow. Gazing at the moon, And fishing constellations. Broken down by our love […]

Dreams of a Dreamer

Third Party Problem

Remember the childhood story of the mouse, the squirrel and the cat? A mouse left its home in a tree hole to search for another home. When he didn’t succeed he returns to his tree hole only to find a squirrel living there. The squirrel claims that because the mouse was absent for so many […]

Pretentious and Proud

“Rise and Shine!” We have all heard this at some point in our lives. When a loved one says something encouraging, we feel energized, or at least we pretend to. We pretend to be happy in front of our parents so as to not worry them. We sometimes pretend to be cheered up in front […]

Long Live the Revolution!

Why do we associate the word ‘revolution’ with the socialist or Marxist terminology? Does revolution only mean overthrowing those in power? Why does revolution mean taking up arms for your ideas? How is revolution different from evolution? Are our opinions communist if we seek to change? Appropriation of any ideology is toxic. Calling a supporter […]
