Monsoon Pinks and Blues

A place where rain strikes and strikes rain. There, in eight words you have a perfect description of Kerala.  I got to patent these words because plagiarists of all kinds are out there waiting to flick ingenious one-liners like this one and post it in twitter as their own. Well, that was some felonious modesty in display to start with.
Monsoon chivalrously visiting Kerala in the first week of June, just as the weather office forecasted is stark irony. It is nevertheless a pleasurable experience. From advertisements of umbrellas on the telly to sprouting of tiny little mushrooms, the whole of rainy season is a blessing. Sipping hot green tea from a cozy balcony with wet daisies and balsams smiling at you is certainly bliss.

On second thoughts, I reckon it would not be so delightful for people living in huts on hilly areas, for those living near seas and for those making a living out of farming crops. So many people die due to monsoon-related incidents in Kerala. Some reports even state that Global Warming is one of the major causes of heavy rainfall here; some say there could be an advent of El Nino effect this season. Lightning attacks, of course are a natural calamity but think about people without shelter, think about the crops damage estimated at crores and crores of rupees every year. It is anything but bliss, isn't it?

Think about it!

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:

What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)
