HOW THE GEN-Z TREATS MUSIC: A curious case of ‘Madari’

So, I was at a Fest/Concert yesterday teeming with college-going chaps hosted by NSUT. The invited guests were the musician duo, Vishal and Shekhar. Everybody was reveling, mediated by their very locals. However, a few hours into the carouse, Vishal was asking the crowd which song do they want him to perform next. A paltry voice made its way to […]

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT OR SOMETHING ELSE? A review

The Indian U-19 women’s team won the T 20 world cup. The news does not definitely invoke a nonchalant attitude, given the background and backdrop of their victory. 16 girls, receding adversity to the side hurtled towards clenching onto the elusive world cup.   What is it about this particular display of women empowerment that induces a certain celebratory feeling?

Let’s dig into the phenomenology of love […]

Anime

ATTACK ON TITAN: A curious case of morality

The premise of Attack on Titan  is salient yet, to an extent, unintelligible. The show owes its complexity to its seasonal nature; with each new season, the dimension of the storyline widens unpredictably.  Effectively, new revelations are exuded about characters regarding their motives and intents. The anime has many different personality traits, and how they vary in other circumstances.  Eren […]

POLARITY: The idea of the two poles

I am of the opinion that we as rational beings are stranded or rather oscillating between two different realities which can be represented on a line. One is the state of ignorance, and the other is the state of exaggerated penetration. How? Let’s get straight to the point. The pole of ignorance  In a state of ignorance, people tend to […]
