    15th Mar 2023 by

    My pics don’t half capture what we saw two evenings ago at our Kempegowda sky. With zero city silhouettes, no trees, just this blaze of light we’ve all seen before, but this one ruled! It had been a long day, we were hoping for a spot of coffee & chat. But time runs: you don’t… Read more

    1st Mar 2023 by

    She was at least six months pregnant; her other child seen here, looked up at us with vacant eyes. The woman’s pale face brightened; in minutes every container of food we gave them was ripped open as they ate till their wrists were messy. I couldn’t sleep that night. The first time we saw this… Read more

    16th Feb 2023 by

    dew drop in our balcony: every morning it is there, and often I drink it in. Every sip is pure oxygen and some. Words dodge me, like prayers already prayed, like Answers answered.

  • Coincidence of miracles?

    13th Dec 2022 by

    every dawn she reaches clay arms to the Light pouring in via chips tears cracks It is disobedient to her death, It strips her nakedness. “You’re a wasteland, a nothing, ” they had said. But the Light disobeys Lies. It reverses rape of the human mind. These are her morning routines.
