A lesser-known fact about me is that my entire room was filled with large posters of cars like Bugatti Veyron and Audi when I was 12. How those posters were replaced by that of Disney princesses are a different story in itself. But since childhood, cars have always fascinated me. I somewhat feel that human evolution comes riding on the cars that are trending in that particular year. Automobiles today stand for fruition, status, and power. They derive personality traits which not only humans have, but also those which humans desire.

Well, my love affair with cars ended in high…


Technology is advancing at a pace, never fathomed before! The current pandemic revealed our dependency on technology to sail through life. From heating our morning coffee, to setting an alarm at night, our entire lives are in a way guided by our technological consumption. Technology has become such an inseparable part of human existence, so much so, that it should not surprise us to see wearable technology a part of our daily accessory.

Wearable technology is any kind of electronic device designed to be worn on the user’s body. They include literally everything from smart jewellery, wristbands, watches, pins to…


Here I am, sipping hot tea on a cold winter afternoon on the first day of the year exceeding the most dreadful year of our lifetime, thinking about all things I could write, but cannot. If you have ever faced a writer’s block, I am sure you can understand the frustration one faces when made to write something, when you either have no original ideas, or are struggling with articulating them. It is not like I have run out of ideas, or do not like writing. In fact, the lockdown made me more perceptive. I invested my time in taking…


Mine was probably the last generation to have a childhood with little encroachment from the social media gala. I made my Instagram account six years ago when I was in grade 10. My feed was as random as my newly painted nails to dozens of Taylor Swift snaps with umpteen number of hashtags. When I was in grade 12, the scenario advanced. We started noticing each other’s likes, post aesthetics and wondered how celebrities looked flawless in all their pictures. We were little aware of filters and the boon called Photoshop back then, and this innocence mixed with puberty was…


‘‘Would we know it, the moment when it became too late; when the oceans ceased to be infinite?”

If this line doesn’t send chills down your spine and makes you contemplate upon the extent to which humans have destructed their environment, I don’t know what will! I recently read an article by Rebecca Giggs which forewarns us about the harm humans have caused in their endeavour to capitalize on the oceans. The article talks about how humans, since long, have exploited whales, directly and indirectly for selfish reasons. Traditionally, whales were poached for their flesh which was either consumed as…


For me, there is nothing more cathartic than writing. I am a high maintenance writer. To write, I need a hot beverage, some finger food, window-side table, trendy writing material, and the perfect state of mind. I can arrange for all the other things with ease, but the last time on that list is always the toughest to garner. On top of that, I had undertaken a 60-day blog challenge, which required us to write one blog, per day for 60 days, alongside a weekly blog written every Sunday. Writing can be fun, but writing consistently surely puts one at…


Well, I can never write enough on Feminism so bear with me!

Now that feminism in its full swing, it's the portrayal in films and web series in India has also increased. What is sad is that most feminist characters are scripted by men. Men can write, and men can be feminist allies. But the feminist portrayal from a man’s point of view reduces women’s agencies and defeats the entire purpose of a feminist representation.

Feminist women are broadly characterised as one of these two

In this category, the woman is shown to be ‘not like the other girls’ and…

Bias Alert — This is the critic’s favourite film. I believe this movie was highly underrated during its time. It is not path-breaking in any sense but is a perfect slice of life film that will be a perfect virtual cuddle on sleepless nights. The movie is centred around Mumbai, the city of dreams. Ranbir plays the role of Sid, and Konkona plays Ayesha.

Both the characters are polar opposite to each other. While Konkana plays roll of a mature, driven working woman, Ranbir plays on the same image that is constructed around most of his movies — the spoilt…


As I have mentioned in my blogs earlier, I have now commenced a two-month internship in one of the leading Public Relations firms in India, with immense global repute. So here is my weekly update from the past week that was!

  1. An internship in an online setup can be extremely challenging! You hardly even know the faces of your coworkers. The medium of communication is not as consistent as it should be. Always ensuring that your internet connection, audio device and laptop is in good shape is tricky. …
