I’m Arushi and I’m from India. I’m 20 years old ( going to turn 21 this
year ) and I’ve been experimenting with new hobbies this year. I learnt a
new language, Spanish. I already speak Hindi and Urdu and am fluent in
English as well. I’ve been wanting to start with French for a while now.
And since I do aim to study out of India after my under graduation
course ( of medicine ) is over , I have also been thinking of learning
German so I can go to Germany. I’ve also been wanting to learn a
language that uses an entirely different script from what I know, maybe
Russian? I don’t know.
I’ve also been practicing a lot of drawing. I’m trying to find my style, something between minimal and watercolours.
Music! I love music and a very specific music taste. I mostly enjoy rock
music, and even then, mostly post rock, math rock and the sort. I’ve
recently been getting into the alternative scene. I like dream pop too.
The indie scene in all these genres is amazing!
If you want to try something out and see what my music taste is like,
try listening to Erode by Tender. It’s my new favourite, and watch the
official music video if you don’t mind the PG stuff.
I love movies as well. Usually international ones. Detachment, the kite
runner, the book thief, movies by Wes Anderson have to be some of my top
I do watch a lot of tv shows, animes, and kdramas as well.
And I also read books, books by Khaled hosseini being my favourite. I’m
reading the Lord of the rings trilogy right now. And ah! There’s a lot
to talk about, so if you’re into any of these things, hopefully we’ll
get to talk.
Preferences: 18-30 years of age is fine by me. I’m 20,
so if it did your criteria , I’m fine. I am okay with every nationality,
race, gender , religion sexuality, etc, so don’t let those things be a
Aries: Fuck It, time to plant some grass. Taurus: Nope, can’t walk yet. And there’s no food yet, so I don’t care. Gemini: Hey Christians! Do you sin? Now you can buy your way out of Hell! Cancer: Hi, I’m Gandhi, and if Britain doesn’t get the hell out of India I’m going to starve myself in public. Leo: I want to invent time and space. And I know it’s possible because everything is here and it probably already happened. Virgo: FIGHT- wait no, that would be the end of the world. Let’s just keep it cool and spy on each other instead. Libra: China is Whole Again… then it Broke Again… Scorpio: Get the hell out of here. Will you get the hell out of here if I give you 500 elephants? Ok thanks bye Sagittarius: That’s bullshit. This whole thing is bullshit. That’s a scam. Fuck the church. Here’s 95 reasons why Capricorn: The Soviet Union decides to relax a little, and accidentally falls apart. Aquarius: Well, blame something on them and go to war! Pisces: wanna get enlightened in the middle of nowhere?
Taurus: Nope, can’t walk yet. And there’s no food yet, so I don’t care. Gemini: Hey Christians! Do you sin? Now you can buy your way out of Hell! Cancer: Hi, I’m Gandhi, and if Britain doesn’t get the hell out of India I’m going to starve myself in public.
Can we talk about the Pulse shooting? I mean, today is the 1 year anniversary. I heard about Pulse when I was out of the country, in India. I was home alone- My aunt had gone to work and our housekeeper had just left, and was looking at the news on CNN when I heard.
Immediately afterward, I found people taking to Twitter and Tumblr, and Instagram, posting prayers and updates and condolences. I also found people who were angry at the fact that it had been labeled the largest American mass shooting in history, stating that POC were shot in larger numbers in the past. To those people, as a WOC, I have to say, there is a time and place, and that was not the time to start.
In complete honesty, I started crying, and the more I thought about it, the harder I cried, which at the time, seemed absurd- why would a teenage girl with no family or friends in Florida cry? It didn’t affect me, right?
Well, in the days following it, I began to understand. A community I am a part of was specifically targeted. And despite the fact that 49 people were killed, there were still people who would say that we deserved it, or that we had it coming because of who we are. That made me feel completely and totally alone. It launched me into a pit of self-loathing- how bad were we if people wouldn’t stand with us, even after that many people had died?
It’s been a year, and I’m still learning how to accept myself, but I have learned one thing. As a community, we are strong. We are loving. We will stick together. And we will support each other as much as we can.
Our hearts may be broken, but our pulse is strong.
Today, I fucked up... by causing an explosion 40,000ft above the Atlantic Ocean on an international flight
I was running a bit late for a long-haul flight from Delhi to London, so I quickly bought some snacks and shoved them in my travel bag as I ran to the boarding gate.
About 4 hours in (whilst half the people were asleep and the other half were getting annoyed that the TVs had stopped working), there was a massive bang and the whole plane launched into hysteria.
I can’t even explain how loud it was, especially given the plane was in near silence. Immediately, every baby started screaming as loudly as they could and every mother started crying madly. It didn’t help that it was pitch black either, so all the flight crew running around amongst the panicking masses couldn’t see where they were going at all, so just ran straight into all the passengers as they jumped out of their seats. The people who had been sleeping woke up to a scene normally saved for badly produced films and needless to say also began manically hyperventilating.
After a few minutes of sheer terror, the lights came back on and everyone gradually calmed down. My travel bag was revealed as the source of the blast - obviously to my surprise - and was carefully opened. Tons of what looked like sawdust/powder fell out onto the chairs below and once again everyone freaked out for a few seconds.
As it turns out, in India they hyperinflate their crisp/chip packets so the contents don’t get crushed. They’re also dirt cheap, so I bought about 8 packets (those were the snacks I’d grabbed in a rush earlier). The pressure built up as we ascended, and when the plane jolted from the turbulence, they all blew up simultaneously.
And that is how I accidentally triggered a bomb scare on an international flight.
TL;DR: I made the mistake of squashing lots of hyper-inflated chip packets into my bag on a flight and they all exploded. Everyone lost their minds.
Are you Queer and South Asian, but not out to your parents yet?
Let me offer you some perspective that you may not have had before.
I interviewed my mother and asked her how she felt raising me, a Queer/Transgender man. My mother came to USA when she was a child, and she was raised by very conservative parents.
Please share (I think it’s important for us brown people to actually appear in a super marginalized community), comment, and subscribe 🙏🏾

When it comes to Mexican television there is one show that is so iconic that it’s unquestionably become a national treasure. In fact this show has been so treasured and adored in Latin America that it is still broadcast today, 44 years after it first appeared on the air in 1971. While other programming at the time focused on the melodramatic lives of the wealthy and fortunate in Mexico, El Chavo del Ocho was able to bring light and humor to a way of life that was an underrepresented reality for the majority of Mexicans. The show was able to face poverty, hunger, and homelessness face-on while still remaining incredibly humorous, uplifting and inspirational. The cultural of impact of El Chavo has left it’s mark on Latin culture though characters that are instantly recognizable anywhere they make appearances and it’s catch-phrases becoming a part of everyday vernacular. More importantly, El Chavo has surprisingly been able to bridge the gap between generations, allowing abuelitas and nietos to enjoy the show generation after generation. Even today the humor remains poignant, the characters remain lovable and the program remains a cultural bond amongst all Latin Americans.
2. La India María
While the majority of Mexicans on television have always been (and sadly, most still are) depicted as well-to-do, light-skinned, beautiful people, La India María challenged the norms by creating a character of an everyday indigenous woman and making her a star. La India María’s films and television show took head-on important issues that Mexico’s indigenous population has had to endure over the years. The situational humor frequently featured silly slap-stick comedy while still shedding light on racial discrimination and classism in society. Finding honest depictions of relatable characters on television can be an enthralling and liberating experience for minorities that are often left out of mass media. La India María gave a voice to the native populations of Mexico and has continued to do so throughout the years. María Elena Velasco first portrayed La India María in 1972 and continued to do so up until her passing in 2015.
3. María la del Barrio
Of course, any exploration into Mexican television should include at least one telenovela and there’s no better example than María la del Barrio. Words cannot even begin to express how much there is to love about this novela. The plot is completely outrageous and the acting is atrocious, yet it’s impossible not to be captivated by the sheer hilarity of it all. What starts as a simple (though cliché) story of a poor girl from the streets falling in love with a wealthy douchebag quickly spirals out of control into a tale of debauchery, revenge, and murder. Thalia’s acting as María is so unbelievably bad that it’s really hard to understand what propelled her to stardom in the first place. But the real star of the novela is Itatí Cantoral portraying the deliciously evil Soraya Montenegro. Her hatred of María and desire for revenge is one of the main plot drivers of the novela and leads to some of the most riveting scenes ever captured on film. The infamous ‘Maldita Lisiada’ scene has found new life on the internet and is once again bewitching and perplexing new and old fans alike.
