My Cruelty-Free Journey :)

I have been rather wishy-washy about my choices and decisions but I have known one thing about myself for a long time now and that was that I cared about animal welfare. Honestly, I may have been more adamant about making better decisions as a child but with puberty and wanting to fit in, a lot changed. I’m finally taking the path I have headed towards time and time again. I want to protect animals from unnecessary cruelty that they face in labs in the name of beauty.

It is going to be a long time before I can claim to be only using cruelty-free products because I have a truckload of not so kind products to get through. As a broke college student, I cannot afford to replace all my skincare items stat in the name of a good cause but this is going to be an ongoing process.

In a perfect world, we would not test on animals and torture to further in scientific research but that will simply not be the case ever. We, humans, are the most entitled and self-centered species ever. However, I don’t see the need to experiment on animals for the sake of beauty and makeup. Medical research to cure the next pandemic is justified to me but for makeup, it just seems like unnecessary suffering.

Do you have an opinion on the matter? I’d love to hear from you guys.



Indian Cinema Struggles

Decade after decade I’ve seen female actors being tossed out and the male actors being recycled for the same old characters over and over again and it has  gotten to a point where I am absolutely done.

In this video I simply describe what I want to see in the cinema. There has been change but not to the extent where change is apparent.

Just Hide

IMG_2874Hide your feminity,
it is for your own safety.

Hide your ambitions,
it is for your own happiness.

Hide your feelings,
it is for you own good.

Hide your desires,
it is for your own reputation.

Just hide who you are,
so you will belong.

I’ve been told to hide too many times.
Every time I stepped out I only got stronger.
But I still hide because I think I must.
It is a journey and I’ll get there.
