My thoughts on finding oneself! 'You can't remember how the pain started/And you don't know when will it end/But all you know is you want to stand up again...'
My thoughts on finding oneself! ‘You can’t remember how the pain started/And you don’t know when will it end/But all you know is you want to stand up again…’
They say good things happen to good people,
Happiness finds them but I saw sadness finding them as well,
Just when they thought they have made it through,
the darkness sneaked upon them,
It had the key to all locked away feelings’ vault,
It picks up all one by one,
Ones which you thought didn’t even exist,
One moment you were standing on safe grounds,
The other you find yourself standing over the air,
The whole life spent passes by you,
In blurs of people you loved, people you cared about,
All the colors and sounds,
Now nothing around you makes sense,
Everything is decimating your soul,
You can’t remember how the pain started,
And you don’t know when will it end,
But all you know is you want to stand up again,
And you’d give anything to forget that sadness,
This feeling of never-ending fall,
Which sapped out the meaning of life,
And took all the good memories you had,
But when you are at the nadir,
You don’t even try to look up,
You are left with nothing but tears,
People said, ‘Save yourself’,
Speaking about happiness and hope,
But if they would’ve let down a rope,
It would’ve been a lot easier,
But the pain was mine I didn’t want it to end,
Although it broke me every day it kept me sane,
I was looking for one thing that would let my sad soul free,
I did stumble upon it,
Because I stopped asking for directions,
Directions to my life, where people have never been to,
And slowly I can see and believe in what I am becoming,
And what I am yet to be.
I just give voice to my thoughts and write my heart out. I am a simple photographer of my views. I know just one thing, nothing is wrong or right. JUST WRITE. read more...

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
