A Night without Black

From the prehistoric woman’s first spark that took away the curse of the dark, We’ve been unshackled into the light from the chains of time, into glorious sight. An illuminated street, a candle sweet, a humming post, a disillusioned ghost, Have forever stolen, a mystery broken every secret of the shadows, is now in the open. Has lost its purpose,

An Interview with IIITK

I was recently interviewed by Anant Mehra, a student at my alma matter, IIIT Kota. This was for the collegiate magazine ‘Quills ‘n Stills’.

The Art of Feedback!

Giving and receiving feedback is what quite literally makes the world a better place. It takes multiple forms, oral, written, or even visual.
