The Rising Tide Of TikTok And People With Disabilities
Laden with cobwebs, face hidden with white chalk she stares at me in a ghost costume and gently says: ''Boo!". The half-eaten ice-cream bar and the greed for M&Ms was forgotten as I offered her my arm and squeaked back a hi. I think it was that moment when 11 year old me thought she was my soulmate. Boy, was I wrong.
I Am Strong Like A Dragon
In front of the little Thai diner old Maratha looks after and right in the shade of the Eucalyptus tree you stand tall, grinning the grin of the happy and free. Nobody can see you but me; Yet I smile as I cross the street with the other tourists. I looked particularly eccentric in my yellow tights, with the sun in my eyes but I'll tell you this: I'm fine with you being all made up, Zayn.
Would you love me still if I told you the sun is in love with the moon: Just like me and you

The City With Only One Tree
I would wake up at the crack of dawn, as my mickey mouse alarm clock blared on. It was an old 70s clock, cracked and chipped but gifted from my great grandmother when I was 8. I still love the clock as if it were new, but my mum complains: 'It's like the devil screaming Bojo, Make it stop.'

Life and art murals, how to live side by side with a pandemic
Did you know, the human brain has the capacity to generate 23 watts of power when awake? That of the total blood and oxygen, the brain gets only 20% of it? These are all facts, but somehow it was hard to comprehend how it can relate to Mai’s death. You say goodbye, you kiss them on the forehead and then they leave. You say prayers on their funeral, you tell them you love them and you believe they are at peace, wherever they are. Sometimes, if you’re lucky you see acceptance and peace in their gaze when they leave, in my case I saw nothing. I just heard words, ‘’it will be okay’’, ‘’don’t forget to take care of yourself,’’ that seemed to bounce off my skull. I wasn’t allowed to say goodbye. They weren’t going to let me near her. The most I will get will be a thin voice on the phone, raspy from disuse, miles away while she dies in Lahore.
