  • This is the ninth poem in a series of poems that explore what the commonplace objects in a student’s life would say if they underwent an Enid Blyton-esque change overnight, and could speak.
    “Didi’ calls a voice,
    A familiar one,
    Room ABC has to be cleaned;
    I sigh in joy –...

  • The third week of January is considered to be the most depressing week of the year. Why is this? What I have gathered from my own personal experience is that this is a result of failed New Year resolutions, draining away of the “new year, new me” festive mood and the realisation that the new...

  • The world can be a scary place. Granted my life, as a bench on the football field, has barely seen anything beyond Student Housing – 5 and the Bistro, but being rooted to a spot has its advantages. There are the football games I get to watch every day, and the conversations with the egrets....

  • We have all been there. We have all done that. Any law student who has not pulled an all-nighter yet, please, let me know how. When my last exam got over, a delightfully easy Spanish paper, I slept. Like I have never slept before.
    What kept me sane during that time? Random rhymes here and...

  • One of the last things I considered an obstacle to my moving a distance that could encompass at least one European country was weather. I had known of summers that peaked at 48 degrees but winters that were less cold and more humid. Never mind that, I would still take out the one sweatshirt I...

  • Wherever I go, every place, I need to discover every side of it that I can with my two hands and feet. Because how can you consider loving something you don’t really know? I took a walk at 6 AM on a winter day at Jindal Global University one day – I saw a peacock fly, tens of other birds sit...

  • I finally understand why so many women hate sharing their age. My last teen year hasn’t been as satisfying as I would have wanted it to be but it’s definitely not something I’m ready to let go of.

  • JGU is a world in its own. The beautiful academic block with the comfy reading rooms, the amazing library stacked with books of all possible genres and topics, the dormitories and other facilities sometimes make us forget that we live in a village. Step out of the gate and you will see vast...

  • I was diagnosed with a mild anxiety disorder 2 years ago, and at that time I felt as though my world had come to a standstill.
