The Semi-colon effect

Choose to be a warr;or

Choose to be a warr;or

Choose to keep going, with your heavy heart over-flowing

Choose to never stop till your last tear-drops

Choose to be perseverant while life is being reminiscent

Choose to be a WARR;OR for the labyrinthine path has innumerable barriers

Choose to love endlessly because souls around us are in melancholy.

– Bhavya

Never choose to end the sentence; because you are the author and the sentence is your life.

It has always been so confusing when I’ve been asked to write about myself. If someday someone asks me for how long have I known myself, I wonder what my answer would be? Maybe NEVER or maybe FOREVER! Well, you’ll get to know me through my pieces of writing on this blog but for the sake of social obligation, here’s a brief:

I am Bhavya Rastogi, 20. I am a simple girl leading a simple life away from parties, drugs, expensive belongings but near to books, movies, music, television, nature, and maths. Oh! Did I just mention MATH? Oh yes. Having pursued my graduation in B.Sc. (hons.) Mathematics, I am a Math- freak. I love algebra, trigonometry, geometry, arithmetic, calculus and what not. Strange combination -mathematics plus blogging- yeah.

Before I forget to mention, I am a feminist with a firm belief in gender equality. My feminism not only includes women but transgenders, LGBTs and ‘men’ who’ve fallen prey to the patriarchal society. I like to have discussions about gender equality, politics, religion, history, business, philosophies of life, humor, wordplay. My blog is a mixed bag of my emotions, political and economical issues and feminism.

To me writing comes as naturally as breathing. It is a rambling of my mind. As Hemmingway aptly puts it:

‘There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.’

I started this blog to keep myself away from the stress and agony of life. It is a way for me to pen down my emotions and opinions and share it with people around the globe. So, I hope to have an enriching experience while learning here.

Thankyou for stopping by and reading. Stay happy.

The Modi Hypocrisy

MODI ZINDABAAD! MODI ZINDABAAD!

Mr. Narendra Modi, the current Prime Minister of India or better introduced as NaMo, the iconic ideal of the nation has a large number of fans in and around the world. But here, I am not one of those fans of Mr. Modi. I respect him as the prime minister of India but unlike people around me, I don’t enchant his name all the time.

If I were given a chance to interview Mr. Modi, then the following would’ve been my questions to him which would disclose his hypocrisy to the nation and to the entire world.

Q. Mr. Modi, don’t you think it was your moral obligation to apologize  for the 2002 Gujarat riots?

Explanation:
He didn’t apologize for the riots that took place in 2002 in Gujarat when he was the Chief Minister of the State. Although, he was given clean chit by the supreme court but he should have apologised for not being able to control the situation during his term. I’ll explain this using a simple analogy.
Example:- In a school, if students fight and beat each other in the presence of their class teacher, then the principal scolds the class teacher for not being able to control the situation.
So, in the same way, why didn’t your ideal Mr. Modi apologize for the same. Though the Supreme Court has given him a clean chit with respect to the 2002 Gujarat riots but certain evidences still stand against him. Moreover, if the judge of the supreme court is my friend, who the hell can stop me from taking a clean chit from the judiciary.

Q. Mr. Modi, why do you choose to remain silent when important communal and social issues are being discussed in the nation?

Explanation:
Why doesn’t Modi speak on issues of Sakshi maharaj 4 children scheme or haraamzade speech or conversion issues? He is just like ex- PM Manmohan Singh who didn’t speak. Media said Sonia doesn’t allow him to speak but who isn’t allowing Modi to speak?
Modi is such a hypocrite. On one hand, he starts swachh Bharat abhiyan in the name of Gandhiji. But on the other hand, he doesn’t speak against the RSS plan of building Godsey temple. And a bigger hypocrite is Kiran Bedi who has joined a party which she earlier criticised. I agree that she is an opportunist but why did she join the ‘chor’ , perhaps to become a chor ?

Q. Mr. Modi, if yours is such a clean party, then why don’t you disclose your party’s fundings?

Explanation:
BJP issues a new advertisement every week on radio, television and other social media which requires a large amount of money. Where does that money come from? We know the answer. Big businessmen, corporate houses and the elite business class. To whom BJP returns a favour by saving them from the judiciary whenever they’re caught in a scam. ( because the judicial system is Modi’s friend).
Q. Why do you want your people in every sphere, whether it be censor board or Legislation?

Explanation:
Leela Sampson resigned from the censor board due to political pressure on release of BJP Supporter Dera sachcha sauda’s film. Moreover, recently BJP has appointed their party member Mr. Gajendra Chauhan as the new chairman of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) which has kicked up a controversy.Recent appointments by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry has come under a lot of criticism. Many are of the belief that the BJP government is rewarding those who campaigned for BJP. Recently, the government appointed Mukesh Khanna, who played Bhishma in Mahabharata and later, Shaktimaan, as the head of Children’s Film Society. Khanna too had campaigned for the BJP, and was caught on camera calling Modi, “the Shaktimaan in Gujarat.”
The I&B ministry also appointed Malayalam actor and BJP supporter Suresh Gopi as the chairman of NFDC, in another controversial decision.

I think these questions are enough to make Mr. Modi’s hypocrisy visible to all. So, please fellow Indians, let’s stop enchanting the name of a hypocrite blindly. Let’s together use our discretion to decide the faith of our beloved nation.

Move on with life.

Approaching into the fog. The fog that will engulf him. He’ll be swallowed. But what will remain are the tyre traces on the sand. The tyre traces will fade too with the wind. And what will remain is a memory of him. Of the things that happened and vanished.

So, stop looking for traces but the memories, that are perpetual.

Sadness prevails

Some days you are sad for absolutely no reason.(No reason? Are you kidding me? You have every reason in the world to be sad.)

Your heart is heavy and you look for a dark room or perhaps, a washroom to cry your heart out so that nobody, absolutely nobody can see your endless tears and drenched cheeks. Your eyes are filled with tears and you hide them behind your ‘feigned’ smile. You feel broken and fallen apart. But at the same time, you do not want anybody, particularly your loved ones to know about your state. And if somebody sees you in that dark room, accidentally though, you turn your face away and wipe off your tears before they come to notice. Your inner self shouts out at God for your current state but there’s absolutely no answer. This shout-out relieves you, for a few moments though.

You want to be alone. You want melancholy. But can’t because people around you need you. They want your presence.

So, in the end, there’s no escape.

If only I had words enough

If only I had words enough,
I’d explain you my feelings, my pain, and my smile feigned.
I’d explain you the hatred, the ire, the fire and my perpetual desire.
I’d tell you about the gloom, the platitudinous bloom, the melancholy and my belief in thy holy
I’d give you the reason for my grief and my childlike belief.
I’d tell you my situation, my distress and my hopeless-mess
I’d explain you my labyrinthine thoughts which my inner demons fought
I’d reveal my teary-eyed reveries, my unfathomable memories
I’d describe my depressed state which is tough
If only I had words enough.

She Is “Just” A Woman?

To all those people who ask me why am I a feminist. THIS is the answer.

chotisibaatein

71829-Abstract-Woman

She is a woman,

How can she have opinions,

Why does she need education,

Why should she demand respect,

How dare she challenge their hypocrisy,

How naive is she to dream,

Why should she retort,

Why should she live?

—————————————————————————–

No, She is wrong

She is to blame,

For his infidelity,

For his impotency,

For their poverty,

For everything that went wrong.

It is obviously her doing,

Because he could only bring good luck,

He is a man

And he is God’s greatest creation.

——————————————————————————–

Here, “Culprit” and “Victim”,

Are synonymous,

Her mother had taught her that.

The word “Why” was erased

From her dictionary,

Come on, She is a woman,

She had no business using it.

——————————————————————————–

She is just a commodity

To be used and abused

She is just a sex toy

Whose emotions don’t matter

She is just a glorified servant

Who happens to be the mother of his children

——————————————————————————–

That…

DREAM-ER.

He dreams of being a billionaire.
She dreams of before on the AIR.
They dream of good fortune and fame
And you too dream the same.
But I do not follow the masses
’cause when the ‘M’ is silent, it sounds ASSES.
My dreams are entirely different
And I’ll ensure their fulfilment.
All I dream is happiness .
No showbiz, no glory, just illuminated brightness.
Illumination not by lights, but by beautiful smiles.
Smiles that are inexplicable & happiness that is communicable.
I dream of tears overflowing from my mom’s eyes.
Joy, tears of pride, which will make my hard work suffice.

Femi- nist, nism, nazi?

Feminist? Feminism? Aware? O_o
Well, most of us are familiar with the above mentioned terms. For the rest who are unfamiliar, let me put it very precisely. Feminism is an ideology that shares a common goal, that is, gender equality and utter equality of both the sexes. And feminist is a person who advocates or supports the ideology of feminism.

Quite boring. Right? These remarks are platitudinous. So, what’s interesting? FEMINAZI. Yes, the not so redundant yet powerful word.
Recently, I came across this word ‘Feminazi’. Perhaps, another term coined by misogynistic people in this patriarchal society. Femi-nazi. It probably means feminiss performing nazi-like activities. Do we put men in concentration camps and torture them? Or do we perform brutal lynching of men?
Do we?

For me, this word is quite lame as it portrays nothing but the inevitable insecurity of misogynists. And nothing else. But still, I would like to ask,”Do we?”
