Falling in Love is Cliched

Noone knows how to fall in love anymore. Noone knows how to hold on to people, with everything they’ve got.

Nobody knows what love feels like, only what it is supposed to feel like.

People have become too practical for love. Tch Tch!


Supporting the Pink Ribbon


This is for all those beautiful people I have lost to cancer. Because you fought and fought hard. You’ll always be missed and remembered. You make us more brave and taught us that “Life must go on…”.

And this is in support of all those people who still fight it everyday. And to their families. Because after having been through it myself, all I can say to you is “Be Strong”.

Show your support. Send out a message on 2nd October. http://www.livestrongday.org/pledgenow

In light of the recent incidents in Guwahati, this one is a must read.

In October 1990, the Supreme Court of India ruled in favor of one Banubi Sheikh, a woman who admitted in court that she was party to an extramarital relationship, a woman who also stuck to her guns in stating that that little fact should be treated as irrelevant to her main allegation that she was assaulted and raped by a policeman at her home.
