Book Review: 1984 by George Orwell

So I just finished reading 1984. (when I say “just”, I mean literally like a minute back) Holy. Freaking. Sh*t. I’m just going to dive straight into it because the impression it left on me is so fresh and so incredibly strong that I need to get it out right now. *SPOILERS AHEAD* It’s the…

All fall down.

Hello, internet. Or the very tiny part of the internet that reads my blog occasionally. PS you do know that I love you for it.  Anyhow, it has been a very long time since I last posted, and there is a very good reason for it: namely, school life, and its hurtling towards an end,…

Devi Paksha.

In the time of the Goddess.  Dedicated to Nirbhaya In that bus, a Durga lay whipped- worshipped. I met her myself. Her forehead streaked with blood-bindi, Her body gloriously broken – bred by the anger of the ghoul-gods She lay with a dying-dawning call on her red chopped-cherubic lips. The demon-deities chanted metallic madness-mantras Her…

Ad astra, ad nauseum, ad verbum.

Hello there, internet verse! Blog post on Shashti Eve- what could be more auspicious?  I have been missing for a long time, but for all the right reasons- exams, writer’s insecurity and my modem getting fried after being struck by lightning. Yes, that actually happened. I’ve got quite a lot of stuff to share; including…

Hello there, hi, hi. Have you noticed how, instead of studying as I really, really, really ought to be, I choose to waste my time on this blog? It’s because I love you. And also because I finally got around the more or less permanent stranglehold of a writer’s block. And also because I suddenly…

Revelations.

No wonder there’s an entire book about them. Have you ever realised that of the life you live, how little you actually know- about yourself, your family,your friends? Ever had the mask of understanding, even of those closest to you, ripped off and crushed underfoot? With that dramatic introduction, hello, hi, hi. So glad to…

Tip top, ready to go, go, go.

Hello, beautiful world. God, it’s good to be back. Did you miss me? 😉 (probably not but shhh just go with it.) I’ve been away a long time.I make promises that I can’t keep. Sometimes, I wake up in the morning and I can’t move. I think sick thoughts that leads to emotional starvation and…

Silent Witness.

Fair warning: this. is. creepy. In more ways than one. Who knew I had this Joker in me? —— Oh, the things I’ve seen. Salacious whispers over damp pillows, swirling around me and settling over me like the powdery snow falling outside, glittering and shining against the sinful black sky… Sweet nothings that cut as…

THANK GOD I’M ONLINE AGAIN.

I’m breathing again after suffocating and turning into a couch potato for a week. A whole WEEK laid waste- can you imagine it?! Especially this year, when I KNOW I won’t have time to barely even process my feelings, let alone do something I like purely because I like it! Such a COLOSSAL waste. I’d planned…

Etherised on a table.

Good morning/ afternoon/ evening my flock. I am your Shepherd, guiding you to awesomeness through my blog. And doing that in perfect penguin style, blundering and crashing into things and making mistakes. But that’s why you love me, right? LOL WHO AM I KIDDING this isn’t one of my fantasies where everyone recognizes the adorable human being…
