Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
- Guru Rabindranath Tagore
As India, the largest democracy in the world, celebrates its 72nd Independence Day, it is time that we become more aware about topics that have been brushed under the carpet for as long as we can remember.
In a recent conversation with one of my friends, I realized how we are able to vaguely and easily mock the sexuality of people. Sexuality is one of the most important, and yet one of the most avoided topics in India. Sex education in India sucks. Hands down sucks. And from those standards, exploring and understanding the different sexualities that exist and have the probability of existing, is a long shot.
Do tell me, what do we understand about the human mind, one of the most complex and intriguing machines that evolution has come up with after constant experimentation for around the last 3.8 billion years? Limiting sexuality, one of the most prominent, intricate and convoluted moiety of humans to singularity is maybe the most moronic thing we can do.
So, I urge you to read about it and make yourself more 'educated' about it, because it is crucial for us to be more tolerant, liberal and compassionate towards our fellow human beings and free ourselves from the preconceived notions of utter ignorance. That'll be true Independence.
Do you ever get that feeling?
Whenever you listen to a particular song, a music video plays in your head every single time. I’ve been listening to Porta Vista by Hyper Potions, and I still imagine a scene in where a young boy and girl kiss, and behind them, an array of fireworks dance in the sky. A symphony of lights for the two of them. I wrote about the whole thing, and what I’ve been imagining when I listen to this song. Link’s in the bio if you wanna read more about it. It’s kind of in a rough draft, and it’d definitely be cool if the idea came to life someday

Summertime and smooth legs kinda just go hand in hand. Instead of having to wear pants and hide (🤷🏼♀️) I use my @gillettevenus extra smooth platinum razor. And thanks to the new heavier metal handle, designed for increased control, strength and durability I can feel confident knowing I am getting the closest shave and the smoothest legs 😎 ..
