In establishing the link between cancer and sugar, one thing surfaces: fasting

Human beings have evolved a long way. We no longer live in the era of hunters and gatherers. There was a time when food was not readily available. Now, everything is in abundance. We, as a race, have come a very long way.

So, are there any repercussions?

There is a constant debate among researchers, whether the cancer was rare in ancient times or not. A report by two egyptologists concludes that there is “a striking rarity of malignancies” in ancient human beings. Others debate its correctness; There was not enough diagnosis for cancers like breast and prostate. In addition…

A Poem

Photo by Sandra Seitamaa on Unsplash

I suffer in
getting in touch with
my feminine — 
The sacred Yin, the intuitive
High priestess
Because I have always been
The go-getter or have been in
the go-getter from as long
As I can remember,
I was told times are changing
And I thought that meant
I could be more like a boy
I felt I had to be that way
And discard my softer, gentler
Natural self.
Now its 4 am and some
twenty years later
I lay alone, struggling to
Find a middle ground with the
Boy I love
Because his Masculine is as distorted as
Mine feminine
And we both stand empty-handed
In front of each other with
Tsunami love inside
But not finding a way to flood
In each other waters
Restless we roar
To find a
Calming ,

shore.


A love letter to my unappreciated friends…

The wide bowl
Has enough depths to
Hold popcorns in
Streaming brooks of
My weeping eyes

The burns on the pan
Exhibits heat and smoke
Of my stressful day

The coffee mug is my
Ever forgiving friend
Even though I fractured
his hand,
By being careless, as I’m
Many times with
bones of my friendships

The slender spoons
Have been touched by
My many lovers
Bearing testimony to
The fervor while feeding
Midnight ice creams

The scars on the wok
Mimics that of mine
As we learned together
how new appetites leave
Blotches on the beauty
But bakes you right

Her sinful breasts and
Enchanting curves carved
By bloodthirsty demons
Are a bait for your men
You try to instill submission
When you couldn’t,
You instill fear of
Her dark locks nothing
But a witch’s web.
She intercourses with the devil
Produce unearthly offsprings
That you look forward banishing
From your blood barns

The screaming shrieks
When your men force their genitals
Inside of her is a numbing cacophony
For your red-clotted eardrums
Shameless, you call the same high- pitched screams a mating call to
devils and satan
The blood-soaked veil is treacherous
And she’s an adulteress
When her protector’s blood bares
Her torso…


A simple mantra which will take you places in life.

Once, I heard an influencer saying in an interview, “Always produce more than you consume”. I did not know of her previous work, but this phrase stuck with me. I am a fan of podcasts and interviews. It doesn’t matter if they talk about my interests or not, I have a weird fetish of listening to others’ journey. I did not understand what she meant by that phrase back then. …


A poem

Melting with just a single
Touch, my skin craves your's
Roughness and raw
I could feel the longing,
My goosebumps pointing,
In your way
Wanting to be soothed and
Fondled by your paws.

Your hands on my waist
Strong and firm,
Just like my devotion
And determination to be
With you till the end of
this realm

Your breath on my skin
Havocs the ocean
Building within,
Touch of your love
Breathes in life-
In my dull being

It isn’t sexual,
Rather sacred. It is not
about your manhood
and my femme fatal:
You carry a warmth,
which silences all storms
Melt all the icebergs…


That there is more to life than ego, anger, resentment, hatred, envy, and jealousy — being alive

Amidst all this chaos, it is excellent that humanity is standing beside each other. Just in a matter of a few months, the world has experienced something we never dreamt of happening in real. Sure, we saw countless movies and series on Apocalypse or a virus that becomes a threat to humanity, but it never occurred to us; this could become a reality one day.

The country I live in, India, is on the verge of shut down. People have started working from home and have stocked up their homes with necessary items to survive in the coming days, weeks…


Lessons I learned from being at an unhappy workplace, juggling student life, and being a dreamer

Photo by Aziz Acharki on Unsplash

Looking back in hindsight, I can easily conclude that I am a fearful person. Fearful of making decisions. Whether it is about being in a committed relationship, or work, or simply deciding on to a place for hanging out or dining in — I hate making decisions. I hate to bear long-term consequences.

So when it comes to career, I have kept a lot of backups. And don’t confuse it with the mindset of a hustler. It is merely so because I cannot bear the burden of a failed decision.

I have friends who are taking some time off to…
