    Do you feel the same?

    Have you ever thought of where life is taking you? What is happening? Why am I growing up so soon? I don’t want to grow up, I don’t want these, bigass responsibilities and complications. See, the thing is that we are living in a crazy world where anything can motivate you, but at the same time anything and everything can make you cry and make you feel worthless. Are all these disadvantages of growing up? When I was in school, I used to be fascinated by the world, the elder people, growing up and being an adult is the only dream of every small kid, including me and you too.…

    The Sattika

    So starting with the meaning of “Sattika”. It is described as a women’s attire in ancient India in Sanskrit literature and Buddhist literature called Jataka, okay let’s get it straight it means a saree. So, every girl has a story or a memory related to saree, I remember as a small girl I used to drape a dupatta all around as a saree and I don’t know if it is weird that used to make me feel grown-up. Indian traditional wear or ethnic wear always used to fascinate me a lot so one day I just thought of digging deep into it and to my surprise I found that “the…

    Initiating a conversation with myself

    Growing up as a woman I was always told to think about family before doing anything, what people or the society will say if you do anything and most of the time I functioned the same way. Before thinking about what is good for me I always thought about what people will say if I do this and I noticed that somehow my decisions were never mine they were based on the collective thoughts of the people whom I don’t even know. We do this always in regarding everything from a small thing like what should I wear to a gigantic decision of whom to marry or what career path…
