Going back to work with foggy brain was hard, but I believe the hardest is to leave your 4month old at home. Point being – I would have preferred going back gently into the “wild” but circumstances make the difference. Just happy that I have Monday and Wednesday with my boy. I jokingly said to […]
Mommy Diaries: #UnpopularOpinion
I have noticed this annoying trend or rather herd behaviour these days – of continually pin pointing blame and prejudice. With Elizabeth II’s death it was about how evil the monarchy is (without considering time-place aspect of being humane), and now about mens toilets not having baby changing stations. And so loud are the Americans […]
Mommy Diaries: Mother Goddess
It’s Durga Festival in a week. It’s important for an Indology student (as well as a Bengali woman) to know that she is the representation of Supreme Shakti, with a multi-dimensional demeanour of mother goddess, a nurturer as well as a warrior/protector. The word ‘Durga’ means invincible. Albeit a Hindu goddess, her roots are Vedic […]

Mommy Diaries: the fight is real
The fight is real. Not to be reduced to motherhood despite all its joys. Of course a woman is defined by her capacity to produce another human but we forget it is men who are also capable of doing so – we can’t reproduce all by ourselves or change gender by-will like some green frogs […]
Language is a powerful instrument and words it’s sharp edged Obsidian knife; while Twitter the place where you find chefs using it to brutally wound out of hate rather than to cook a concoction that feeds hungry souls.
Mommy Diaries: One year ago.
It’s been an entire year since I stopped the count as a “single woman actively dating”. It’s our first ever anniversary together. The past year was unexpected and exceptional. We got together as he moved all his belongings from his old apartment to his new one in Fribourg, as I was actively looking for the […]
Je dois reformuler quelque chose que j’ai entendu récemment… (à mon avis) La fonction éducative de la vie est le rêve de tout philosophe moraliste et de toute propagande conservatrice. Pour vivre pleinement, ne cherchez pas la fonction éducative de la vie, car comme l’art, il n’y a pas de fonction éducative ici!
