If You Didn’t LOL At These 14 Bollywood Scenes, Then You’re Dead On The Inside

I’m not the happiest person to be around. Really. Smiles appear once every 300 years, and most of them when I’m in front of a screen. When I’m watching brilliantly written scenes that make even my resting bitch-face crack up. So if you’re having a bad day, and simply want to LOL your way through it: here you go. And if you don’t LOL at this, then maybe you’ve forgotten how to laugh. When Veeru drunkenly stood on the water tower when Basanti rejected his proposal in ‘Sholay’. Jai literally giving zero fucks added to the scene. When Geet loses…Continue Reading

When You Have A Million Followers, But Only One Best Friend

I’m someone who constantly checks social media. Who tracks how many people have seen my Instagram stories and tracks EVERY stupid poll EVER.

I mean, they care enough to reply to my stories, and be nice to me when the Internet can be a truly, truly dark place. And honestly, their replies make me forget the friends I’ve made IN REAL LIFE. You know, the best friend who stuck around before I was even on social media. Who’s been there for 8…Continue Reading

13 Beautifully Weird Videos That Are Basically Memes

Have you ever gone through your social media feed and just felt…tired? Like you’re seeing the same things, the same news, the same…everything? Because honestly, it’s something that happens to me almost everyday. It’s something I’ve also kinda accepted in order to feed my need for social media and the things on it. And then I came across Nick denBoer’s work as part of the Uncover project, and well, it was something that took me a while to make sense of. Don’t get me wrong, it was pop culture…but different.

15 Drama Series From The 2000s That Perfectly Capture The Power Of Growing Up

I’m going to start this off by admitting to the fact that I probably spent way too much time watching TV when I was a teenager. But in my defence, that’s because the shows that were made around the time I was a teenager were JUST. SO. GOOD. They made us feel like maybe, just maybe, life wasn’t as bad as it sometimes seemed. They defined coming of age, and became the hope we grew up on. The O.C. This show didn’t have too many seasons (running from 2003-2007, it had 4 seasons), but boy did it make an impact.…Continue Reading

My former boss once told me that I “lacked tact”. This was followed by, “Farishte, you’re too honest”. I didn’t really understand how someone could be “too honest”, because well…honesty IS the best policy, right? Of course, this childhood belief has been contested by the world time and again. But if you’re anything like me, then you have not let that change anything. Because really, you’re not mean, you’re just honest.
