Springtime. An ethereal time of the year when the earth awakes from its slightly chilly slumber, flowers decide to puke pollen into the air and baby bunnies are born, I guess. If my intro hasn’t hinted at it enough already, I’m not a huge fan of spring for several reasons. First, I have an i...

Black, black, and more black — viewers watching the 75th Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 7 were not greeted by the usual red carpet scene. Instead, celebrities had adorned themselves in all-black attire in support of the Time’s Up movement protesting sexual assault and workplace inequality. Such a sy...

I am willing to bet that 97.34 percent of the world’s population woke up on Jan. 1, of 2018 with the brilliantly original thought, “New Year, new me!”. The beginning of the year is a period of time supposedly geared toward self-improvement through making new year’s resolutions, which, in my opini...

At the beginning of this school year, the reality that my final 180 days of youth were coming to an end began to dawn on me like a blue whale eclipsing the sun. In a metaphorical sense, I will be booted from the safety of my nest into the wild unknown that is (hopefully) college, left to fend for mysel...

Views from India has sort of become a trashing-on-Indian-culture column over the past year, so I will try to go for a more positive approach. Despite my constant nagging, I can’t imagine being where I am today without being a part of this community. And the sense of community is one of my favorite...

Apparently in India, or the part where my parents were from, it was considered weird to write with your left hand. Being left-handed at birth, I asked my mother why I had to write--or at my age, scribble--with my right hand. Her terse response: “I don’t like writing with my left hand.” From then...
