    Some Amazing stories: Recommendations 2021

    Books are an integral part of my life; it’s been over 2 years since I have started reading and all this time I have read a lot of good books. Last year, when I wrote a blog on book recommendations, I had decided to turn it into a series. Thus, every year I will list down some of the best books I have read throughout the year. So, this year I have read 12 books so far and most of them are amazing. Here’s a list of books I loved and you might as well: WHO MOVED MY CHEESE? By- Spencer Johnson The text describes the change in one’s work…

    Ending the period shaming era.

    After my last blog (Shh! Don’t talk about it: Abnormally normal taboo) check it out if you haven’t read it already!!! I have been reading a lot about women’s health, taboos related to periods, etc. Earlier when I wrote about normalizing periods it was to share my views on the topic but later while reading more about it, I realized it is an important issue. Women all over the world have faced period shaming at one point or another in their lives as many ancient cultures considered menstruation unclean or impure and still do. Period taboos have led to the exclusion of women from social, domestic, and educational activities for…

    INTROSPECTION OF INDIVIDUALITY AND HAPPINESS

    What you should do? What you shouldn’t do? Who you are? Who you want to be? What you should and shouldn’t wear? I thought answering these questions individually on my own are my basic right. But it turns out all these rights are reserved for the society, “the people”, whom I might not have met more than a couple of times, and who might absolutely not know me personally but still, you got to do according to a set of rules where whatever makes you happy does not even come at the end. I am really ashamed to be born and brought up in this space where I cannot spot…

    Loud and Proud: Pride Month

    Love, acceptance, tolerance, and hope are always worth quoting. To be in love and loved is said to be the best feeling in this world and I couldn’t agree more. Accepting someone and our own self for all the flaws and strengths takes courage, tolerating someone you love even when it seems difficult to do so is tremendous. Hoping for the best life with love, respect and equality is a basic human right. Why are we discussing so much about all this? As many of you might be aware of June, known and celebrated as the “Pride month” across the globe, this one is for them and for those who…

    What is that you truly desire?

    Sometimes the smallest of the things makes us think in a way we would have never thought of and makes so much sense in life, when we encounter such instances, we end up realizing that there wasn’t anything unknown yet shines a bright light. Recently, I read the book “The secret of the Nagas” by Amish Tripathi. It is the second part of the shiva trilogy, it is mythological fiction. The story takes place in the imaginary land of Meluha and narrates how the inhabitants of that land are saved from their wars by a nomad named Shiva. This is the smallest bit of the story; it is an interesting…

    DISCONNECTING THE REEL FROM THE REAL.

    Yet another lockdown, most of the world is still in lockdown, and in India, we really don’t need to mention anything about it we all know. This is not about the lockdown but just a random thought I had one night and felt like sharing it. Have you ever felt like not living your life authentically? I mean real and meaningful life. Although now vaccines are available, we still have no clue about when the lockdown will end, when we will be able to continue with our outdoor lives. We are somehow working from home, attending online classes, everything is online, basically, our whole life as of now is functioning…

    The I don’t know phase: Lockdown 2.0

    Just when we thought that everything is about to be normal again, March 2021 happened. It feels as if we are stuck and there’s no way out. The current scenario seems similar to what had happened last year but feels extremely different. When all of this started again many of us might have thought that this won’t be so difficult as we lived all this earlier too, but this time it is not the same, there’s no excitement, there wasn’t a need for a vacation, we were at our home for over a year, we wanted to get out of this covid cycle asap and get going with our normal…

    It is all about making the right choice.

    What do you love to do the most when you are at home? Since we have been at our homes for more than a year now, we all developed a few hobbies, what are your pastime favorites? Mine is binge-watching series or movies, lying on my bed and chilling scrolling my Instagram feed, and the most beloved one is eating junk (basically tasty food, let’s just accept a burger tastes 100 times better than a plain roti), then sleep, and repeat. I loved this lockdown life but all the chilling and eating cost me a huge prescription of medicines, it was some hormonal imbalance that led to pcod (I hope…

    Thoughts on the shopping game: Is there a need for change?

    This is something we have never spoken about before, going to be super informative. Do you know what is thrifting or anything about a thrift store? If not. Here we go, Thrifting refers to the act of shopping at a thrift store, flea market, garage sale, or a shop of a charitable organization, usually with the intent of finding interesting items at a low price. A larger philosophy permeates the act of thrifting which celebrates the recycling of formerly-owned items, finding new use and a new love for vintage material goods which had been thrown out, and the thrill of imagining what the former life of the item was like.…
