Initial Carvings

Initial Carvings

I had a dream today.  We are sitting in the quiet woods, across the remains of a fire we can no longer afford to feed. The embers are still hot, still glowing, but it’s no longer fire.  It’s all that’s left between us, soon to be ash. The color will fade and nothing will remain but darkness. You keep telling me it’s happened already, but I can still feel the heat and I can still see you. But maybe I just remember the heat and I’m only picturing you.  You’re ready to go home, but maybe you still feel it too. Read more

A match made in heaven

A match made in heaven

I belong to a family of chai-addicts. We usually spend our evenings discussing Darjeeling gardens over cups of tea. Thanks to relatives who have been planters themselves and later on managers or directors of tea gardens, we have knowledge of tea that we can flaunt. While my father prefers orthodox liquors, my mother is fonder of green tea she flavours herself. I on the other hand swing between the two, reaching out for my mug of beaten coffee at times. We are such tea-fanatics that when we have guests, we usually don’t ask them if they would like to have tea with or without sugar and milk. But what we do ask them baffles them most of the time. ‘First flush or second flush?’, ‘Glenburn or Margaret Hope?’ are some of the questions we have regretted asking our guests. Read more

From Potato Sack to Potato Mash: The Contemporary Crisis of the Third World by Eqbal Ahmad

A child servant rings the doorbell of his master’s house and runs away back into his servant quarter. This minute act of coercion is rather fit to be named as mischief than rebellion. Eqbal Ahmad, in his essay, From Potato Sack to Potato Mash: The Contemporary Crisis of the Third World, calls this retaliatory behavior against the benefice; a limbo, hanging between the idea of a revolution and an actual one.  Read more

We spend our time rushing through each day- to study, to earn, to buy more things. But all we do is invest in materialistic things which at the end, we don’t even have time, energy or health to enjoy. Rather, why not pay attention to the little pleasures of life? The bursting of soap bubbles on a baby’s nose, a dog chasing his own tail, the joy of rolling down grassy slopes or a messy handmade greeting card created by your children! Don’t miss out on the small things in life-for they are the most precious! Read more
