He came closer, He brought his face close to mine. I turned my face towards the wall. "Nervous?" he asked. I nodded my head. He smiled and offered me his cigarette. "Are you nervous too?" He nodded and took the cigarette and kept it aside. It was still burning, like my dreams. He brought his lips closer, Perhaps to kiss me. My hand created the barrier, He kissed it. Along with his lips, His teardrops also touched my dying body. "Why? You don't even love me" I asked. "I love you." He said. A drop of tear rolled down my cheek, And finally, I slept peacefully.

So What, If I Am A Prostitute?

Culture, Poetry
I opened my eyes, I was there across the bed, All alone. The glitter of my skin, that yesterday shone, Has faded away. I walked, Stumbling on my way. Who am I? The girl of the night. Oh! For the happiness That I want to receive in the bright light. My virgin heart, My bruised body. My survival, Is my struggle. You eat me hungrily at night, But under the warm sun rays, You will look at me from the corner of your eyes. Questioning along with others, You win the glory of your clean character. So what, if I am a prostitute? Who the hell are you? No, I am not pure, But yes, I don't fake innocence like you. My subsistence, Is in your existence But shhh!!! Let me take the blame. I am the predator and you are the innocent prey Let me walk towards the darkness,...

Their eyes met from across the road. With lowered eyes and fear in her heart, she crossed the street to meet him finally. Their walk towards the India Gate was a silent one. Sitting beside each other, they talked in soft voices about general topics. They didn't have an eye contact during the entire conversation. On their way back, she gathered courage and peeked towards his direction. The first thought in her mind was that he was very tall. The setting sun was a reminder that they finally have to part ways. The day which they never wanted to end, has finally ended. He decided to drop her to the metro platform. Without even realizing, amidst the crowd, he held her hand and directed her safely towards the platform. Did she need the protection? Definitely, no but did it feel good? Definite...

Out of curiosity, I checked the description of the app, and I came across the term, “White Noise.” We all know that noise is unwanted sound but what exactly is white noise and how can it provide us a relaxing atmosphere? What Is White Noise? First thing first, White noise is a type of noise. It is produced when the sound of different frequency blends at a similar level.

'Should we order food?' he asked. 'Hmmm....' she said. 'But the internet isn't working. I don't have any number.' He said, in a confused tone. 'You can cook.' she suggested. She was unsure about the idea. He had just returned from his office. 'Hmm... Should I cook?' He asked. It seemed he was questioning himself. 'Yes. I think I should cook.' He continued after a minute. He went to the kitchen. She followed him. The kitchen wasn't in that good condition. The sink was filled with unwashed utensils. 'Room of a bachelor.' He said as if he had read the thoughts in her mind. 'You love peanut chocolate?' She asked when she spotted a bottle of peanut. A few months ago, he also handed her few peanut chocolates.

To Kill A Mockingbird is the first book that I have read in 2017. The first few pages were tough for me to read because I was getting confused a lot but then finally after reading the first two pages twice, I picked up the rhythm. The book is written by Harper Lee. It was first published in 1960. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this book. The book tries explaining about sensitive topics like rape and racial inequality in a very warm manner.

By and large, we are taught that deforestation leads to environmental degradation and other environmental problems. In fact, the problems created by deforestation are atrocious for all organisms. We all know about its impact on the environment. Having said that, what about its impact on the human? I would like to draw your attention to the link that exists between deforestation and human disease. I would like to start with a case study so that a better understanding is developed in analyzing the correlation. Case Study of Deforestation in Borneo Island Borneo is the largest island of Asia and third-largest island in the world. It is shared both by Malaysia and Indonesia. It is one of the oldest rainforests in the world. But it seems like very soon, we will be replacing ‘is’ with ‘was’.

Today, I wanted to go for shopping. I was thinking whom should I request for a company. After an hour of thinking, I was still clueless. ‘You should learn to go out alone.’ Echoed a voice. After a moment of hesitation, I started getting ready. I decided that I will go out alone. I took all the kinds of stuff that could distract me from the world outside. The stuff included my mobile phone, earphones, a novel and many packets of gems.  After stepping outside of the house, I thought of listening songs to expurgate myself off from the surrounding voices. I asked myself if I wanted to listen to music. The answer was no. I kept the earphone inside my bag and started moving ahead. After few steps, I thought of taking a rickshaw, again to avoid the gazes of the people. In a country li

GK Mahantesh, Cricket Association for Blind in India (CABI) President said, "It would be great if the government and BCCI react and recognize, embrace and endorse CABI. our boys have won four championships in the last four years.

You can't question the efficacy of blind cricket as a prove of excellent human spirit but you can surely question yours. We all know the kind of...
