World health day.

Today, on world health day, I have written something that is very close to my heart. Mental illness goes unnoticed because we have associated it with craziness and madness. Any mood deviations should be brought under check, in time. People are taking their lives, because no matter how worthy they are, depression and anxiety makes them feel like a piece of trash. The worst part … Continue reading World health day.

Let’s practice Women’s Day

I know people love Days, especially the ones when they can celebrate their love and support for women and boast how much they believe in Feminism. BUT. Tomorrow, when they go back to their offices, they’ll sexualize their secretaries. When the 30 year old woman gets a better designation than them, they’ll defame and question her ability to stand out. Tomorrow, when a woman will … Continue reading Let’s practice Women’s Day

The exam break made me go completely out of practice. I was lacking motivation to write. Basically, I was having a writer’s block. But I guess, sometimes it’s okay not to be okay.

What is humanity without hope and compassion?

About four years ago, when the video of a baby boy sitting calmly inside an ambulance after a bomb blast in the capital of Syria went viral, I remember very clearly, I wept the entire night. I woke up and called my mother ( as I was in a different city back then ) and told her how lucky we are. How blessed we are … Continue reading What is humanity without hope and compassion?

FORGIVE OR FORGET-Which is easier?

Takes a lot of strength to forgive someone who has cut you like a sharp knife. The truth is you can never be the same towards them again. Never. And the fact that someone demeaned your expectations will always haunt you. No matter how many years pass, it will still hurt, it will be like a pin prick, sharp and for a moment. But it … Continue reading FORGIVE OR FORGET-Which is easier?
