Guys, remember how Rakhi used to be a big deal when we were kids, what with all the fuss about picking out the best-looking Rakhis and pestering our siblings for gifts?

When it comes to younger siblings, “can’t live with them, can’t live without them” becomes somewhat of an understatement. They get on your nerves, and unlike anyone else, they love it! But well, truth be told, you know too well how dull, how boring, how so very uneventful your childhood would have been without them. Kinda makes the annoying-ness worth it, doesn’t it? (Of course, you’d never tell them this.) I have two younger siblings, and I know just how my life has been richer and way more fun because of those two kiddos!

As kids, they were just stories. Stories of a charming boy called Krishna, who grew up to become a fascinating figure and went on to achieve impossible feats. But as you grow up and take another look at these childhood stories, you realise just how much there is to them that you haven’t ever considered.

If Overthinking Has Ever Stopped You From Admiring Life, This Art Is For You

It is a wonderful thing to be self-aware, to have an understanding of who we are and what we believe in. But sometimes, as we lose ourselves in an analysis of our every word and action, it becomes hard to tell where our thoughts of self-awareness devolve into self-criticism.

Artist María Sanoja found herself so absorbed in her self-critical thoughts one day that it led her to realise just how much she misses out on all the beauty around her. And that led her to create the project 100daysofoverthinking, whereby she…Continue Reading

10 Hilarious Things You’ll Get If Watching TV Shows Is Your Favourite Thing To Do

Guys, sometimes when I’m devotedly bingeing on the latest TV flavour of the season, I find myself wondering, “What would my life have been if not for TV shows?” *gasp* It’s a heartbreaking universe I like not to imagine. Because as (only slightly) productive as I might have been in that TV show-less world, would it even have been a world worth living in? A world without drama that is not our own, without fictional characters we love getting way too invested in, without one-liners we’d love flaunting on our T-shirts? Bah, I don’t want that world.

When it will next sneak into your regular routines and mundane days and sprinkle…Continue Reading

Self Love Doesn’t Come Easy, But It’s Worth Every Effort

Self love. Two words. And so much to unfold within them. You probably find these two words plastered all across the internet, in motivational paragraphs and inspirational quotes. You’ve probably come across several articles on all the wonderful ways to go about loving yourself. In fact, I know I’ve written quite a few myself. Perhaps you’re someone who doesn’t quite understand what the whole hullabaloo about self love is, and see it as yet another hipster trend millenials just go on about. Or perhaps you’re someone who has taken the time and patience to master it, and now devote a…Continue Reading

Indeed, millennials of today hold the special honour of being the first Indian generation to openly discuss mental health issues at all.

We associate pain with the most sorrowful of sentiments, but not all pain is bad.
