Maghrib

I miss watching Big Shot on Disney Plus. Every episode used to feel like a warm hug. For the uninitiated, Big Shot is about an excellent but temperamental basketball coach who is demoted to coach high school girls in San Diego after he throws a chair at a high-stakes, televised basketball game.

Reinforcing Poems: A Curation

For a while now, I've been collecting heartwarming poems that affirm our existence. It all started with Poem #1 in this list. It gave me a glint of hope and then, as and when, I came across poems that reinforced the magic of being alive, I've collected them in a Twitter thread. For long, I... Continue Reading →

Nothing’s Built to Last

While working on an article I came across a study which proves that the greenery in the Mumbai city is linked to the socio-economic conditions of the population. The study proves that affluent neighbourhoods are visibly greener than neighbourhoods of low income groups. I had used this study to extrapolate to the overall geo-political issue...
