The table of men

The table of men: ‘DUNGA.’ There are some concrete cement seats normally placed outside the boys hostels. Men-to-be sit here with a lot of tête-à-tête, majorly women, football and music. They talk about girls they have slept with, while in the real sense they approached her, she gave a cold shoulder, but when the night…

Claps of disdain

3.45pm: December 11th, 2014 “We cannot fight terrorism and fight for liberty at the same time.

Picture perfect couple, you…

In solidarity

Sunday 16th November, 2014. Weekend home and extra ordinarily early for mass. I am not exactly the girl who wears long skirts and a head scarf so particularly spared for Sunday. Lipstick as usual, decent pants and a stylish trench coat. I walk past the empty seats and sit at the last bench in the…

Le Voyage ici

Le voyage ici simply means ‘The Journey Here’. This is a story about my blog, right from inception to birth and naming. We have all gone through interviews at one point or another. But this was no ordinary one. It wasn’t a panel, just two interviewers. One lady, and one Gent, both equally intelligent and…
