Minimalism : Part 1 (Reduce)

I have always disliked conflicts. I try hard to please people, to not make enemies out of others and want to be friendly with anyone and everyone. And this has been the cause of my doom. People take me for granted, think that no matter how much they harm me, I am going to silently... Continue Reading →
Why the word feminist?
I wrote about how "We should all be feminists" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was one of my favorite reads of this year. I was planning to write a review of that book but somehow could not. I am pasting here my most favorite lines from that book where she explains why we need the word "feminist"... Continue Reading →
