    Being a Desi and falling in love with those who aren’t from the same region, caste or religion is stressful and heartbreaking.

    ’’Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words “EAT ME” were beautifully marked in currants. “Well, I’ll eat it,” said Alice, “and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key;

    High school dances have always been hyped up by television shows, movies and the people who attend them. Women are shown entering a magnificent ballroom and astounding everyone with their gorgeous, full-length dresses and finding their true love. It also meant that they were finally grown-up and prepared to live in the “adult world.” That’s

    The priority of embracing the creative arts in The Bahamas—and many other countries—is one buried under heavy biases. To be artistic is to embrace an intellectual skill based on traditional narratives. Holding tight to “white collar” professions like law, medicine, and accounting, Bahamians make it hard for anything else to shine through. However, at this

    This was something I wrote to reflect quite a dark time and my eventual journey to self-recovery. Hopefully anyone who is going through anything similar will be able to see that it does get better. It does. Hi I don’t know why I hate you For as long as I can remember Not enough to

    Life in a time of change. Life in a time of a stress. Life in a never-ending series of events. I can’t predict what’s next, much to my dismay, but I know this world isn’t right. It’s a new year, a time of hope. But all around me, I see war, I see refugees, I

    In the past few months, I have gone through an incredible journey of self love, discovery and lesson learning. Throughout my journey, I have kept affirmations and what I have learned in my journal for when I need to take a step back and remember who I am. I hope that maybe these words could

    I have been thinking, maybe, just maybe, some people are not really meant to be happy? But what does it even mean, after all? How do we know we reached happiness? Is there a crossroad that reads “Turn right for half of happiness”? It is such an abstract term, some perceive it in colors, others

    Ever notice how social media and the entertainment industry have created untruthful stereotypes about Mexicans and Mexican culture? I’m here to debunk a few of them! 1. We All Have Big Families Uh, no. Just because you heard other people have 7 brothers, 4 sisters, 24 cousins, 16 aunts, 14 uncles, 4 grandparents, does not

    Dear Amrit, I know you’re probably really confused reading this (at this point, you’ve never received a letter in your life). I wanted to start off saying that, although you’ve perhaps never even considered it, this brand new year of 2008 and the ten years that will follow in the future (all the way up

    How come such idiotic excuses are enough explanation to justify the unjustifiable? How come we have to repeat every single day things that everyone should know and respect, and even while doing so, those are the first things people seem to forget? How come we have to tell adults to not do what kids understand
