A poem about how our dreams and aspirations are squished out of us as we grow up.
Ravish Kumar thinks 'Rambha Ho Ho Ho' should be 'the nationalist song'. So I set Modi's actions to it.
I always thought of my home, Jammu, as a place of tolerance and tranquility. Not anymore.
The way that we imagine nonhumans in fiction reflects how little we, as humans, really get each other.
We have to seek strength from each other and our lived experiences. We have to give up self-hate and embrace self-love.
Today as I entered my home, mom and dad gave me a tight hug and said, in their happiest voices, “Congratulations son! Now it's legal.”
