I, and many like me, have been strong survivors too though, maybe because our blood reeks of rebellion. But excuse me, since when…Continue Reading

It’s hard and not everybody can do it. But it has to be done if you want to keep it real. What am I talking about? Being completely honest with friends, of course.

Raw, Inspiring, Badass: This Indian Woman’s Art Captures Everything You Feel

I suppose that’s because she takes so much inspiration from the world around her…and from the words around her. “Lately, I’ve been inspired by life and human emotions in general. How we as human beings interact with life at different stages,…Continue Reading

In India, insertion = deflowering (what even?). But it is important to know all the alternatives that are available in order to make informed decisions about one’s body. Growing up, I always used disposable pads when I had my period. I didn’t like them one bit. The rashes, the stains, it was wayyy too painful. But I settled because I wasn’t aware of any other menstrual products. A few years later, I…Continue Reading
