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
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 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
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. So I was doing just that a little while ago when I stumbled upon #AintNoCinderella. It appeared as though some kind of feminist movement was brewing on social … More #AintNoCinderella
I’ve got half a mind to just leave this post blank, because the title really says it all. When it comes to politics, I feel that the saying ‘each to their own’ majorly applies. For this impromptu UK general election tomorrow, we all have our reasons for voting for whichever party we’ve opted to go … More Don’t Try To Sway My Vote
We all know that social media is used to prove a point. I posted a pic at my yoga class with a green smoothie, therefore I am fit and healthy. I posted a selfie= I know that I look good. I posted a pic of my entire family around the dinner table= I have a … More There Is More Than Meets The Eye
Tossing and turning in my bed late last night a random thought crept into my head: why do we love memes so much? Okay yes, I’m definitely scoring a solid eight on the oddball scale right about now but all that aside, think about it! I mean I’m largely talking to all the millennials out … More Memes Galore!
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?
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
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
