My winning write up !

Hey my fellow bloggers…as most of you know that I am in college

(because duh, knowledge is success and you all wanna be successful don’t you ?!? )

and that I am good at writing

(if you don’t think using auto correct and thesaurus

is a crime punishable by literature, that is ) .

Here I present to you my entry which got ‘Appreciable Efforts’

in a contest organized by


in association with my college fest ‘Meraki 2k16’ .

The name of the contest was Octopus With A Quill

( clever, ain’t it ) .

I am sorry I wasn’t able to Re-blog it and could only provide you with the link.

I hope you will click it.





I wanna be me !



“Duniya ka to kaam h kehna !”

(people will say what they wanna say )…

I have heard this DIALOGUE a lot of times, but is it so easy to get over what people say to you.

Or is it so easy to criticize someone.

One thing I have vowed to myself that I will never be, is this person. I believe in loving any body and everybody,

tall or short,

slim or fat,

white brown or black…

You! Yes you ! you can judge me but know that all these things are falling on deaf ears cuz I ain’t listening.

I am gonna be what I wanna be.

A free bird.

Who can go however high she wants,

go however further she wants,

if I want to free fall, I will !

You are not my parent,

you are just a face ,

you don’t count !



P.S. this is to all the judgmental people out there. Get over yourself and get out of the la la land !




Will you look at that… we are moving up in the world !

Guess who just got nominated for ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD …


Me ! US ! that’s who…

By this lovely , awesome , great , knows-way-too-much-big-words-but-still-knows-how-to-work-them blogger friend of mine VIDISHA KAUSHIK…

(stalk her !)

My speech

uhmm …uhmmm..



The rules are as follows-

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (DONE )
  2. display the award on your post. (CHECK)
  3. list 7 facts about yourself. ( ūüôā ABOUT TO DO SO .. )
  4. Nominate 7 bloggers and let them know you¬†nominated them. ( GREAT…PICKING. )



  1. I am the kind of a girl who can’t put a good book down and it doesn’t matter if there is a flood, tsunami, alien attack , earthquake, terrorist attack, , apocalypse, zombie attack . No ! ( although do excuse my flair of dramatics , these things happen all the time in my La La land. And don’t you worry, Captain Shweta is always there to save the day )
  2. I, from the above , middle and the bottom of my heart love The Imagine Dragons, Nirvana , Lilly Singh , Harry Potter , Adele and Ellen.
  3. I am big on the idea of loving everybody and showing them respect. I believe that nobody in this world is too small or big for you to not acknowledge them !
  4. I never wear bright colors. ( Imagine that with my complexion ! )
  5. I  am also very big on Foot wears . I am like borderline obsessed . Scratch that , I am obsessed !
  6. Loyalty is my middle name and judging someone is not in my nature unless I am given a hard-core reason.
  7. I have trust-issues.


And here are my Amigo(s) whom I stalk more than the others !


(the guy I confused for a gal.. still embarrassed, I am )


( I know she nominated me but I don’t care…she deserves a second one )


(she reads…..enough said )


( because it promotes what I believe in )


(because she knows )


( because I am a Wanderluster )


( because we have similar taste in books )




Being a by-stander to a train-wreck of a hot mess !

How many of us have seen someone we know just fall prey to bad things ?

I bet the number constitutes at least 90% .

I , for one, have seen many ( and taking into account my ignorance of everything not related to me , its saying something) .

We try and try to get them to let go and yes, sometimes out of sheer luck we do succeed but most of the time, we fail !

I thought I failed too but what I  came to realize later is that it was not my test to fail .

Its like me and that person , in an examination hall , sitting next to each other and having an entirely different paper. While I have the knowledge to help that someone else pass this test ( and my willingness, which is rare ! ) ,  despite my best efforts to help them try to achieve it , the other person may not even be able to understand me.

Which surprisingly (not ! ) , is true in most of the cases.

( Also the above may suggest that me not being a good cheater, the fact though still remains. Their test and them not asking for help, makes it none-of-my-business ! )

Similarly, it is their life, their decisions, their mistakes, their triumphs. Relative to this, we are just by-standers ; allowed to have an opinion and even shout that opinion in their faces. ( as long as we expect it to be followed by ignorance on their part obviously . )

I have myself made¬†bad decisions ( who hasn’t¬†? )and in hindsight I wish someone would have shouted some things in my face too, but in hindsight I have also¬†realized that I would have just as easily ignored them as I would¬†my homework.

Only thing WE can do is be there for them. I am not asking you to support their decisions because that ish is effed up but only to let them know that whatever happens, and whenever they are ready, you will be there for them.

( Queue the Awwwww ! )

Last but not the least …

Live and Let live !

( despite the jackasses they are ! )

Love everybody

(but don’t smother anyone with that love )


#GirlLove challenge

I got up late ,

obviously didn’t go to college

and well more or less , there on after,

cuddled in my quilt all warm and comfy.


So here I am, little old me , browsing the YouTube

(as one does when one is bored) ,

and suddenly I come across one of my favorite you-tuber,

iisuperwomanii a.k.a. Lilly Singh’s video on ” Girl on Girl hate:” .

Now you know that I go to a girl’s college

and needless to say that with all the girls around,

some cats are bound to be rattled and some fights are bound to ensue.

(  and yes, boys and some girls , that is an image ! )


ME? I am a certified Unicorn just like my home girl Lilly and you know me, I like painting them rainbows all around too much to get into a fight.

¬†Therefore ,here I am (out of my quilt , just for y’all) writing on a serious topic.

( I do that sometimes you know, get serious I mean.

It’s rare but it happens. )

Moving on …

If you are a girl, you have experienced THE jealousy, enviousness, superior complex, inferior complex and a whole lot more !

Hell , even if you are a guy you have most likely experienced those things!

And I bet my soon- to -be -bought -hover-board

(A fact ?  I am very serious about that hover-board

and it doesn’t matter if future is probably twenty years later ),

that you have judged other people.

I’ll be the first to say that I have too .

And to be honest , its more of a reflex.

In my defense, it is empirical that one observe one’s surrounding and science says surrounding include humans so there you go.

I rest my case .

'Your honor, SHHHHHHHHHHH. Can't you see the defense rests?'

Considering that a judgement now has been passed,

its stands to reason that one goes on to publicize it.

In layman’s term,



I am a girl ( obviously a little tom-boyish but still a girl )

and trust me when I say that nobody loves bitching and gossiping more than girls.


It is hard to explain but if I were to do it,

purely for the purpose of this post ,

I would conclude that we get a certain high from  it.

Hence , the commencement ( see me, using all the big words) of girl on girl hate.

So, keeping all this in mind,¬† Lilly Singh ( Lilly with the double L’s ) introduced #GirlLove.


#GirlLove is an idea.

It is an idea to spread love and get over this feeling of jealousy, inadequacy and insecurity.

If you know someone who is better than you,  learn from them.

You are your unique self and they are theirs.

What is good should be complimented and what is better should be praised.


Ok then !

I should stop rambling now !

And you , you go watch the video.

The challenge is to come back and compliment a person in the comment section.

As for me, I would like to compliment a girl I used to know ;Saima , who was better at poetry¬†than me ( you are judging but anyhooo… )

I was jealous but you girl , you were something !


Concluding this post,

Last but not the least,

Admire but not hate!

Be inspired and not discouraged!

Spread love!

And compliment others once in a while , its a great feeling to see that smile on their face !







All the money made from the views of this video goes to the Malala Fund !

So do watch it !

Peace Out !
