We, The Equalists

Not-at-all-dear Patriarchal Society, I know that I’m a huge disappointment to you. I couldn’t have been happier with myself for that. You’re right when you say that women like us have imbalanced the societal order. We indeed have. And we will happily continue at this noble task till the time gender balance is restored. Till the […]

Chasing The Blue Horizons

My day started on the deck of a ship that took us away from the shore in the golden hour. Excited for my new adventure, I was trying to soak in the expanse of the Indian Ocean in silence. It seemed like the infinite blue sea was merging softly at the horizon with the blue […]

You will be hitting a hurdle.’ The profundity of that simple signage struck me and years down the line, it still rings true in […]

The Women Gossipers

They are everywhere. Slavering with stories and theories on women. They are found among both sexes. Gossiping about women is their chief pastime.
