The drama of 2020 was due a cinematic horror film release…. Last year none of us would have even fathomed the destruction, the death or the depression that 2020 brought in plentiful. It was an odd year to say the least…We learnt a lot… and most of us will definitely admit that. Whether these wereContinue reading “Let there be light…”

My Death Sentence.
“You will never move again. Your brain has been compromised and you’ll be left side paralysed. You should have come here sooner.” These were the first words I heard from a Doctor in 2005,on the first Monday of June after I seem to finally awaken from what seemed to be a long, very uncomfortable ‘sleep’Continue reading “My Death Sentence.”
It’s an MS Day…
It’s an MS day and though that may mean nothing for some and confuse the rest… I’m going to try and explain it the best I can. I have multiple sclerosis. On most days you wouldn’t know that because between my fiery, quick speech and the fact that I literally never stop doing something, you’dContinue reading “It’s an MS Day…”
Absolute Power Farce- News and Social media!
And the week was a sapping week… The lack of sunshine didn’t really help the mood. We had London weather, without any of the cool breezes or nips in the air. It didn’t help that the MS pain is returning ever so gradually warning me with new pains in areas that I didn’t think couldContinue reading “Absolute Power Farce- News and Social media!”
The Politics of being a Woman
Now none of this is to allow you to infer my personal feelings on the current Sushant Singh Rajput case or my feelings on Kangana Ranaut, but this week was an embarrassment!

Then there’s the fact that there doesn’t seem to be a cure for Covid or any end for this pandemic in site. Add to that the daily suicides, desperately sad photographs that make every newspapers frontContinue reading “The Big Depression”
And she just died. I read a post yesterday where a girl I knew posted on Instagram that she was on her deathbed and a few hours later she was dead. I had not met her for a few years but I had been aware of the work she was doing and she was doingContinue reading “She died.”
Hypocrisy and Death!
#RIP #GoneTooSoon #Heartbroken All useless tributes that mean literally nothing once someone has passed. It’s not like he/ she can read the ‘love’, ‘the tributes’, or feel ‘the sadness.’ It makes us feel better, like we’ve done something – but in truth it means absolutely nothing! Yet another life was taken this week- I sayContinue reading “Hypocrisy and Death!”
Note to #Divya1.0
I am the class nerd. I am the people pleaser. I am the eager beaver over achiever and this lock down has been hard. I’ve always felt I can do more, be more, achieve more- all around just make better use of the 24 hrs I now have been given. And I see the postsContinue reading “Note to #Divya1.0”
The numbers will go up.
And the alcohol stores opened after 40+ days for a day and a half and crowds thronged! And then before you knew it- it was banned again- along with all other shops(excepts ‘essentials’.) Covid-numbers increased , we were told. Social distancing wasn’t kept. How can there be crowds? 40+ days – so what?! Ban everything.Continue reading “The numbers will go up.”
