  • Old Car: A Piece of History

    September 9, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    A well-ridden bike or a well-driven car has its own history. Each of them leaves its own mark behind. For example, my old SUV (Nissan—Pathfinder) just turned 19. It has over one hundred thousand miles on its odometer and still runs better than the newer one we own. I have spent very little money...

  • When in doubt, be orange

    September 8, 2016 • POETRY • Author:

      If you can be a fruit, be an orange. Don’t be an apple. Don’t be zero shades of white. Be an orange. Be so orange that they have to name a color after you. Don’t be an apple covered in lousy, scratchy skin. Apples can get away with it. They need no cover. Don’t …...

  • A journey from Nepal to China, and lessons in between

    August 2, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    In Nepal, student life had always been about carrying heavy books and mugging every text from the textbook. The chubbier your bag, broader your mind. But those memories often got misplaced like the notebooks in the rack. Being beaten and getting scolded for having poor brain mechanism was like...

  • I love the Color Gray

    July 3, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    I love the color gray. Now don’t go assuming things. No character or series made me like gray, I’ve just always liked gray like I’ve always liked stepping on crunchy dry leaves and smelling new books. Nobody influenced me to like gray. I was still a kid when my sister was in her goth phase...

  • What we write we feel and what we really feel

    June 17, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    Before writing anything, every writer tries to make the writing meaningful and make it more of what they feel about something they write or what they feel about the writing itself. I think that writing something which is not meaningful is not worth. It is a human nature to be attracted towards a...

  • Lying to yourself

    June 15, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    I take small sips from a bottle of Perrier, or Evian- it doesn’t matter; the point is, I sip on privilege. I am a feminist, one so radical that sometimes, I want to burn my bra and I would, if not for my saggy breasts. The look doesn’t suit my cropped top wearing body.  So, …...

  • Give me words. I’ll give you nothing.

    June 11, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    Right here. This is where life shuts down so you can hear it sing. Do you hear the absolute? Do you feel it tingling your bones? It is you. It is everything that went wrong. Everything that didn’t happen. Everywhere that you were meant to be. Everyone that you were meant to see. The core …...

  • Awakening

    May 18, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    For some reason, every argument people make seem so childish to me now. Gone are the days when I used to argue. People who used to be around me will probably be shocked by the fact that I will not debate about why everyone in this world should become vegetarians. After some quite time for …...

  • Lifeless Breathing

    May 10, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    The big enticing artistic clock hanging on the wall is singing its same old tic-tic song. It is never tired of that melody which has already irritated me from some time. A slight amount of sunlight from the gigantic sun is peeking through the small crack of the wall making some objects visible in...

    My dad’s in the office and my mom is asleep, warm under the sheets that are keeping my blue feet covered. Dada is on the sofa across the room, checking his emails and whatever. I have to sit here and pretend like I’m studying, when actually I’ve been staring at the same page for...

    February 6, 2016 • NON-FICTION • Author:

    Treading towards a distant statue perched on top of a hill. A strange feeling of calm overcomes me. Seeing his peaceful composure it leaves you with thoughts. Amidst all that chaos is a being in peace that we forget. We tend to make our inner conflicts the truth. Most of what could be the truth...
