The Red Turtle- A silent realization

The Red Turtle, an animated movie without any dialogues is a perfect example of how sometimes words are not needed to send a profound message. The story begins with a man being marooned on an island, pretty much like Castaway or Robinson Crusoe.

How CauseAChatter gave more meaning to my blogging

When we began the Blogging With A Purpose track at Blogchatter, our intent was for us as content creators to give our blog a valuable purpose. We could have a niche blog or a blog that covers multiple topics, but at the end of the day, the journey feels wholesome when we are able to…

You’ve got to stop and gaze at The Color Purple

Purple signifies grandeur, independence, creativity and magic- just like the women characters in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple.  The moment I began to read it, I felt like I’ve stepped into the diary of the protagonist Celie- a diary in which she writes heart wrenching letters to God.

Curious and curiouser cartoon conspiracy theories

There’s no arguing that the 90s had some of the best cartoons ever. The creative sketches, the incredible story, hilarious punchlines and ingenious plots- all made them iconic and were our favourite companions along with evening snacks after school, weekends or rerun marathons during summer vacations.

I think it’s safe to say that the past year and this one so far have been pretty much trying to survive through an apocalypse. While each of us are figuring out different ways to cope and hold it together, one of the most ironic ways has been to watch apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies! Weren’t…

The strange cosmic siblings

4.6 billion years ago Amidst a disc of gas, dust and rocky bodies, the infant sun is born Over time, out of the chaos orbs of planets are formed One of them- Theia, comes charging towards the young earth with a gigantic impact Resulting in a swirling molten bright mess of magma rain clouds- synestia…
