Her Body Her Choice.

Body shaming is the most dreadful insult that there is! There isn’t any excuse why we insult someone for their body shape. I always keep spreading this message that no one should ever body shame anyone. It is not a bully now, it is rather a type of a crime now! Today we were having our dance selections and I not being interested in dancing and stuff sat down quietly in the corner hiding. After the teacher had gone away, I came back to my seat. A classmate of mine suddenly asked me why I wasn’t going. I told him that I am less interested in those sort of activities. What he replied was something utterly nonsense to me, he said to me not to dance because if I do so the floor might break! And a bunch of hooligan boys started laughing. But I not being a girl to merely sit there and cry dashed out of my place to my class teacher and informed her. She was rather furious and was extremely angry at him, she took away his badges and did not even bother to listen to him. He being a very good friend of mine, I least expected that he would throw such horrible comments at me. I would have tolerated anything but body shaming! Even a mere slang would have been alright. It is my body, my choice! If I look at the mirror and love my body then nothing really matters anymore. It is more important how is see myself than what other “people” do. I am not made to please them, I am what I am and I won’t be changing for anyone. No one for that matter. If I look at the mirror and tell myself that I am beautiful then I don’t care how the world sees me. I think I am beautiful and I am happy with that. Body shaming is not a very smart thing it is rather a hideous crime! Believe it or not. The next time you body shame anyone, think! Think before you act, folks!

Escapism – A growing disease.

Suicide isn’t a very good idea to escape reality. In today’s generation the number of suicides are surprisingly increasing on a high rate. So why do people decide to suicide? For stress, tiredness, failure? Or to escape reality because their minds are not strong enough to accept failure, to accept defeat, to fall down and then get up again? Kids have forgotten to fail nowadays. It makes me sad when I look at the kids and see their faces, faces eager to grow up before age, minds eager to know than they should know. I know nothing will change with me penning down these words. Nothing will. But change is extremely important now. If parents do not forbid their children from doing stuffs they shouldn’t then who will? Friends? No, they’ll make things worse (provided you don’t have a very good friend who really loves you)! I want to share a few thoughts of mine with parents. Respected sirs and madams, I request you not to hand mobile phones to kids especially during the adolescence age because that’s the age when kids make most terrible mistakes in their lives. Besides, why should we give them mobile at an age when they are not enough mature to handle one? Why should we deliberately push them away from us? In my opinion mobile phones are responsible for pushing people away from one another. These electrical device is the thing responsible for tearing us apart. We are close but yet so very far from each other. Why should we let a simple electronic device control us when we already have our own minds to do so? After all smart phones are not that smart you see. Clearly not smarter than we are! They are dumb and all their work is to make us dumb! I tell you, I warn you not to give them these dumb devices. The job of parents is to make their child’s life beautiful not risk it! And then social media has a very bad influence in one’s life, extremely bad. It is highly addicting! A child does not come home and share whatever happened in school with his/her parents nowadays. They sit there gaping at the screen and letting their hands speak not mouths. We have forgotten to speak, to laugh, to cry. We have become emotionless! We are not able to express ourselves anymore. We’ve lost power to imagine. Did you notice that kids do not get into any mischief anymore? Because they cannot think! They have lost the ability! Handing over smart phones is not an act of true love it is utterly a nonsense!

Owing to the recent events taking place, I feel disgusted. Kids suicide because they are not able to face problems. This is not a very good way to escape. It only means that this generation has become escapists. Try and teach children to make mistakes, fall down and then again get up and start fighting. Teach them to face challenges boldly and not to run away from them. Teach your children to be a human not escapists.

Killing of Innocence

 

As I walked down the streets of Yemen

Under the cerulean sky,

I saw a girl

Younger than me.

 

She wore a frock

Similar to the sky

Looking at her,

I saw a free bird

Eager to fly.

 

She seemed tranquil

Least bothered about the catastrophe around her

She was in a quiet place,

Far away from the cacophony of the earth.

 

As she lay there

I stood beside her

Her innocent face,

Her cold cheeks.

 

I felt her anguish,

Her fear,

Her dry tears

Resting on her cheeks.

 

Petrified, I cried aloud

What has she done to be a victim of such harsh brutality?

She was innocent

She was a child!

 

Starring at her

Tears rolled down my eyes

But she looked happy,

Peaceful.

 

But why am I to cry?

The men sitting there have no compunction,

Hundreds of innocent dying under their nose

Where are they?

 

Are they so heartless?

So deaf?

So blind?

So rude?

 

Looking up at the cloudless sky

I sent the little girl my regards

The wind blew softly,

Kissing my cheeks, thanking me.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 – The Act of True Friendship.

Harry Potter has always been a favourite thing to read or watch whenever there’s something upsetting me. It brings back fresh memories and allows me to dwell in a world full of witches, wizards and magic. Of all the parts Deathly Hallows Part 1 (in case of films, in book there are no parts) stands out to be my most favourite. The caption “Trust no one” is the thing that I find the most attracting.

It is so true in case of everyone, whenever we are in any trouble we cannot trust anyone indeed not even someone close to us. At that point of time anyone can betray us. But it is very rare that a friend stands with us even if the world turns its face away. A friend whom we can blindly rely on, a friend who will stand quietly with us in our moment of despair, a friend who will give us the tightest hug when we cry, a friend who will readily lend his arms to us, a friend whom we can love unconditionally. Nowadays, friends are considered similar to as plastic bottles, they will use you and when you are of no use they just throw you away. It is extremely hard to find a friend like Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley who will stand with you until the very end. J.K. Rowling has given us a perfect childhood which many authors failed to give (I’m talking in her favour) . She has given us the freedom to imagine and be in a world that is completely different from the world we know. A world of magic and mischief. But at the end Mischief is always Managed. No matter how much they got hurt or how much they bled, they remained true to Harry and never left him to fight alone. J.K. Rowling has given us the true essence of friendship and we are so very thankful to her for that. The way Dobby sacrificed his life to save a friend of his, Harry is unimaginable. Nowadays a friend would throw you in face of danger rather than saving you. No matter how much they fight among themselves, the point is that at the end of the day love wins. They loved each other above everything. The thing that even Lord Voldemort couldn’t take away, true friendship and love. Harry Potter would have been nothing if Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger wouldn’t have been there with him. Both Hermione and Ron did not think even for a second time to leave their family and home to protect their friend.

A true friendship is what today’s world craves for. An unconditional love and care.

As Hermione Granger said, “Books and Cleverness! There are more important things: Friendship and Bravery.

And Ron said to Harry, ” Maybe you don’t have to do this alone.”
