Punjabi Sikh Sangat: The Cracks In Our Foundation

After recently becoming exposed to the world of “brown Twitter”, I’ve realised just how deep the cracks in our foundation have become. Why are we actively seeking out ways to divide ourselves rather than to unite? We’re not the same: you’re Tharkhan, I’m Jatt. You’re from Malwa, I’m a Doaban. You identify as Indian, I’m … More Punjabi Sikh Sangat: The Cracks In Our Foundation

Fix Up

Sisters, friends, cousins, dad, mum,  Her judgement applies to all of them, it spares only one. And that’s herself, that finger will never point her way, As she sits on a pedestal, with so much to say. So and so has piled on the pounds, another is seeking validity on Instagram, One needs counselling, while … More Fix Up

#PunishAMuslimDay

So I logged onto Twitter a little while ago and saw that #PunishAMuslimDay is amongst the most trending hashtags…weird, must be some bizarre belated April Fool’s prank? I’ve literally heard nothing about this ‘movement’ up until about an hour ago. So I proceeded to message a few of my friends and family asking if they … More #PunishAMuslimDay

#AintNoCinderella

Slow afternoons at work always result in me making a hot chocolate and having a nose around Twitter to scope out the trending hashtags of the moment.

Is Snapchat Racist?

A Buzzfeed reporter took the words right out of my mouth in a recently published article regarding Snapchat and its controversial ‘beauty’ filters. I was actually discussing this topic with my sister a few weeks back, pondering whether or not to write about it but they beat me to the punch; damn you Buzzfeed! Although all tantrums aside, of course … More Is Snapchat Racist?

Social Media Stalking

Cards on the table, let’s be real for a moment. Whether it’s because we’ve been bored out of our minds, or caught up in our feelings, or trying to find any which way to procrastinate, we’re all guilty of having crept on to an ex’s/old school friend’s/completely random person’s Facebook/Instagram/Twitter page. Face it, it happens, we’ve … More Social Media Stalking

Social Media

Over the last few years social media has become such a paramount part of people’s lives, particularly in the case of twenty-something year olds. I was chatting to this guy the other day, he must’ve been about 24, so not much older than me. ‘Have you got Snapchat?’ he asked. Nope. ‘Instagram?’ Nope. ‘Twitter?’ Nope. … More Social Media
