Delhi Queer Pride 2015 : Moments of love and equality from the pride march

A question which more often than not makes me question how humans have associated a tag with everything. It is outrageous to say the least, that the bedroom is a place of deliberation of the politics and rules of the society. The law decides who one can be with and whose company can put one behind bars.

Debunking Ideals with Myntra’s Shop by Shape

Image, the literal meaning of the word is; a representation of the external form of a person or thing in art; an exact copy. But if one really looks into how we perceive  “image”, when it comes to one’s looks, body or perspective, it means a different thing altogether. There is the image of how an ideal good looking person should be, how an ideal teacher should behave and how an ideal body should look like. Such concepts and beliefs, have reconstructed the “image”.
