    It was very tough teaching 3rd grade kids about politics, and they could only learn after great dramatization of the whole lesson. But it was so surprising to me that when we showed them the videos in form of cartoons on the same, they were completely receptive! It made me realise the power of vis...

    On this cold concrete At a night so forlorn, Blazing orange cigarette ashes find their way To a quick salsa dance The yellow light emanating A terrific red gown, Made of silk, no, nylon Because these dances happen In crevices of abandoned wooden bars. Spandex, rubber, latex, sweat heav...

    Let them come in My delicacy is ready Made it with all I had Just to make them happy. Powdered my face Put on some eyeliner Highlighted my lips With the sweet shade of cherry. They arrived with silver knives Each one carved with an insignia of might Advancing with care They ...

    My blood runs thin like a jar of iced lemon tea slowly and little by little you come in like cubes of ice making me believe that I'm getting better but all you're doing is choking my heart....

    Frozen food pipes and iced hands My head on this snowy desert sand These desolate roads And no destinations These cold companions and heartless vessels These eyes which yearn This stomach that churns Frostbitten fingers which break one by one This frigid smile and its plastic permanence So...

    There is a fire in me I need to douse There is a heart in me I need to kill There are thoughts I need to forget There's a winter I'm waiting for There are bones I need to break and a self I need to destroy because I made myself all about him and he isn't here anymore....

    I'm scrubbing, scrubbing really hard To find something I don't have, The talent that must lie within. There's blood oozing out of my skin, Maybe there are scratches on my worthless soul. Maybe if I break myself far enough We could all find something worth fighting for. ...

    I am lying on the ground Hands on my stomach Hair on grass Grass on hair Melding. I am looking above The sky is like a stretched satin bedsheet On a design model set With colours infinite The patterns change The printing remains immaculate My eyes can't concentrate There&...

    When you put yourself out there on the social media you open yourself to feedback, both positive and negative. In Ayn Rand's novel The Fountainhead the protagonist's pure love for his art made him prone to the hate of the world, his otherwise hard shelled exterior had cracks through his wo...

    Sitting with a plate of freshly prepared ravioli For which I had toiled almost an hour I dent my blue couch with the weight of my being It's comfortable This glass cage I paid for With money I had earned by selling my soul My eyes wander over my Empty living room, Filled with thin...

    Look at you looking at me With your hazel brown eyes Through the hazy whiskey bottles On which patterns of splattered blood lie the whiskey is cold Just like your heart I need you to stop your scowl Let the patterns die and we'll be warm enough....

    I don’t know how exactly to deal with death, it seems like a quite routine task actually. I faced my first death when I was in fourth grade, it was my grandmother and I remember crying almost in an instant. After that experience I lost many important people in my life, so important that now when I...

    The Bridget Jones’s Diary based on Helen Fielding’s book by the same name is easily one of the most important romantic comedies of the times. While watching the movie you won’t be transported to somewhere mystical and unknown but you’ll reach your neighbourhood. This is a familiar film; th...

    Who will decide what is unnatural? The Indian Supreme Court’s decision to criminalize gay sex met with a lot of opposition, but apparently not enough. I want to pose this question to one and all, what is religion and morality on whose grounds we trample minority rights? The reasons to criminalize ...

    Sometimes we need a sharpener more than an eraser. Aren’t we always constantly wishing for the clock to turn so that we could do things in a different way, so that we could say better goodbyes or turn into better people? Don’t we sometimes wish that we had expanded our horizon and made more effo...

    Don’t you just want to learn all the languages? Isn’t language the very being, the very heart of a nationality or culture? Don’t you feel like a native when you twist your tongue in foreign utterance? I do, I want to read and read and read until I know everything about everything. I want to kn...

    A spider it weaves it’s thread Creating it’s work of art It traps me in its mystical words And colours unfathomable! A spider’s thread Like a poet’s rhymes or a painter’s thought, Like a woman’s love or A wine’s sip, Plans out my doom, And destruction, creating honey-c...

    Put on your hat And some lipstick Make sure no one’s looking Start with some clothes again And choose the ones which don’t suit you at all Put some gloss too And curve your lips a bit Practice that fake smile for it takes some effort, Put up a sham and hide behind it Lock your w...

    We are like two ends of a stretched rubber band ready to snap, Our patience not very elastic. Our relationship is like the tear in the cold, frigid winter morning Warm, heartbreaking. I'm like a failed bank giving you too much credit....
