This Slam Poem Tries To Make Sense Of The Age-Old Question, What Is Love?

Published

on

Love is a beautiful feeling that everyone feels at some point in life.

For decades and centuries, poets and writers, through their work have been describing this whirlwind of an emotion and people listen to their interpretation and discover the intricacies of their own hearts.

Unless you’ve felt that kind of devotion and a raging passion for another person, that you have no control over, you can never know what love feels like.

But how would you describe love?

Love is deep and vast. It is the feelings that one shares with another person, and the huge barriers that you cross together. It’s the happiness you get while spending with the person you love and yet, love is indescribable.

Well, everyone has their own definition of love and each one is beautiful.

Recently, Yahya Bootwala, a boy from the city of dreams, Mumbai described what love is and what it isn’t through his poetry. The poetry is bound to give you goosebumps while you listen to this beautiful poetry.

“Why be biased to complexions? Please Stop being hypercritical.” Aranya Johar Questions the Society

Published

on

India is a nation that is obsessed with skin colour. In almost every Indian household, young girls and boys are taught to believe that fair or light skin is better. It’s a problem that has been discussed at large, and many men and women have spoken up about how this skin color bias affected them growing up.

Aranya Johar’s latest spoken-word performance, titled A Brown Girl’s Guide to Beauty, has taken the internet by a storm. The 18-year-old young and bold poet, has been a popular name in poetry circles for a while now after her poetic performance titled ‘A Brown Girl’s Guide to Gender’, had gone viral.

In Aranya’s latest poem titled “A Brown Girl’s Guide to Beauty” she talks about how beauty brands and the people around humiliated her for being brown.

She emphasized on how young girls and boys have become conscious to their body image and colour primarily because magazines have images of glossy and flawless men and women on their covers.

She rounds up her poem by explaining that before we expect people to love us for who we are and how we look, we have to love ourselves.

The poem is important at a time when we’re teaching kids to embrace their identities and not be ashamed of themselves. Young parents could take a leaf out of her poem, so that they don’t end up body shaming their kids like our parents and scores of uncles and aunties did to us.
