Paint it RED

 On a dreamy morning, I was thinking why we still use plastic enormously in our everyday lives. An idea bubble burst and disturbed my reverie. It said “Paint it RED, paint every plastic RED, RED means danger, RED could save us from a plastic epidemic” I turned around and thought aloud “Is it a stupid idea?” “No idea is stupid”, replied the husband.

I picked up the crushed red plastic wrapper and tucked it in my bag as I slowly saw her turn. She looked at me as if I were a demon.  She was licking her lollipop non-stop. I went closer to her and gently took the lollipop from her hands. She tried to grab it back but I took it further away from her. I then picked up the plastic from my bag and put it in the ground in front of her. I saw her staring at the plastic and then back at me. After a minute of strange silence, she picked the plastic up and ran away to her mother. I followed her and gave the lollipop to her mom and told her that her daughter was adorable.  I showed the little girl where the trash bin was and she smiled.

This could very well be my little campaign - The Paint It RED campaign, where we have every plastic out there painted red and do away with them in every possible way. If you think you have an appetite for such things, pitch in and we can step it up. I have an action plan to make it happen :)


  1. Great idea. For a minute I thought you wanted to paint the town red. I am sure you know what that means.

    1. Thanks SG :) I am glad you thought about painting the town red, we should be able to take such initiatives in that spirit :)

  2. A fabulous idea, Rohini. Going green should be everybody's mantra. And plastic should simply be banned!

    1. Thanks a lot, Shilpa :)
      //And plastic should simply be banned!// absolutely. I started the campaign by going with ice cream cones over plastic tubs :)

  3. awesome idea Rohini.. and I wish you my very best for your inititative.

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? :)
