Everyone was bent on the track, but now everyone has started running, except you… You,Bent on the tracks, still figuring out how to even run.How to launch out,How to go […]
It feels like God echoing his words through my ear drums, my heart burns, this is fire shut up in my bones, what a joy!I’m never gonna be cold again These were my exact words just two weeks back. Before I gave him who comes to steal a chance to kill the hunger that was […]

I am posting this here for the purpose of posterity and curation. I do not know if I will perform this piece ever again because of the weight of the emotions and the memories it holds. My heart goes out to all the lives that were lost in the month of October, 2020 during the […]
