About the author

There are many fragrant ways to describe Nishma. Some are more flowery (though these are sparse, and probably from people who don’t quite know them); some have a soft woody scent (mostly from old friends suffering from a severe case of nostalgia); and some are just plain spicy (interpret as you will). Whatever the case – here is them as they knows themselves.

For those seeking a more literal understanding of Nish (as they prefer to be known), here are some labels: non-binary, brown, decolonising, community activist/developer, occasional blogger, invisible disability, over-educated, overthinker, adult-ing (kinda).

Whatever tickles your nose hairs, really.

Changing the world

Aim: To achieve a world where everyone is actually equal, and none are more equal than the Other.

These writings/scribblings/endless-words-across-a-page are pathways, and may seem higgledy-piggledy, but in the end – they will reach a point. They will achieve a focus. And they will point in the correct direction. Just let go while you explore them, and you might find that your whole world has turned around. Or, more often than not, it will just look refreshed.

Objectives:

  1. To provide a platform for alternative thoughts and viewpoints on social justice, politics, books, film, culture, and other thoughts that float on the fringe of the imagination.
  2. To create well-researched and thought-provoking stories on global happenings.
  3. To encourage “mainstream” activist and activism to be more inclusive and ‘decolonise your mind’.
  4. To not use ‘to…’ more than necessary in fear of sounding mechanical.

Read. Enjoy. Act.
