She walked in behind him. She much liked to stare at the ground while walking. Her mother said she slouched. Her mother also made it known to her that she thought that her esteem was low. She just did not want to step on gum, that’s all. He wore blue. A faded blue tee covered by a denim sleeveless coat. Blue jeans, ripped at the knees. A blue cap sat on his hairless head, slanting in a crooked, almost lifeless way. He was staring at the ground too…Or was he staring at his als...

It’s been more than a month now that I have shaved my entire head. The reason behind this was to promote diversity and protest against the killings happening in my country and around the world. Let me give my beautiful readers some context. Oftentimes my mom would run her hand through my hair and say how beautiful it was. People used to say that too. But when I used to talk about cutting it a little those people would say, “No! Do you want to look like a boy?” After cut...

“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words” - Robert Frost, a renowned American poet Learning English can be an intimidating task, courtesy of the unyielding grammatical and syntactical rules, as well as the daunting principles of sentence formation and punctuation. What adds to this unbending image is the rigid method in which this language is taught in schools—as an endless series of rules meant to be obeyed when one pens down tho...

When I first started posting here on VOY, I did not tell anyone. Not my best friends and not my family. I didn’t know why at first. Now I realize it was because I was afraid that people might discover another side of me, an ambitious side. So I wondered, why? Why am I afraid of people knowing that I’m ambitious? I still don’t know the answer to that question. But what I do know is that since I’ve started showing my ambition many people have told me they respect me for it, b...

Ever had an imaginary version of a place that you wish was real? A place of your own where you had the chance to set the rules? This is my version of a dream place In this castle we built, Hands of fate weren’t in charge. Everything was steady, Boring but never vulnerable. In this castle we built, Rules of time didn’t apply, it moves slowly when we’re content and fast when it must. In this castle we built, Darkness wasn’t scary and light didn’t...

"3...2...1...", "This is it, time to make history!". These were the lines that were said by the characters of the cartoon "Loud House" as Nickelodeon introduced its first married gay couple. An introduction more valid than that couldn't be made. Before I tell why, let me describe the scene a little bit. It is a scene which a gay and bi-racial couple, Howard and Harold McBride, drop off their son Clyde at a slumber party. So they are not just a same-sex couple, they are also multi...

Race is only a problem if you make it one. Don’t ever, ever, try to say anything otherwise. I was once told that cold is just the absence of heat, and similarly, hate and violence works the same way. You are born without bias, carefree and innocent. Prejudice only comes through your lifetime of experience. Hate is just the absence of love, thus violence is absence of peace. Without the heat turned up, the cold will creep into our homes and our lives. Some of us might disp...
