For the last fifteen years, all I’ve done is write. I wrote poems as a fourth-grader, taglines as a ninth-grader, captions for my photos when social media took over, and finally started writing stories during my freshman year. Let’s be honest though, I wrote secret love letters as a high school girl more than anything else. For most writers, such anecdotes or incidents from their lives define the beginning of a lifelong journey.

This is what it looks like to be a writer

I’m often asked how I write poetry, short stories, articles or blog posts. In other words, my friends, family and colleagues often want to know how I…

Becoming a Marketing Analyst has emerged on the career plan of many marketers or marketing aspirants recently. The shift that has happened from traditional marketing to digital marketing to the involvement of data in marketing is truly tremendous. In a pool of job options available for marketing roles, there’s a sudden increase in demand for technical skills as the job requirements. Strangely so, the commerce roles are not strictly commerce anymore.

Although we know the requirements and understand the shift in the role well enough, the concept being so fresh and new to the industry, a question often arises in…


The Importance of Marketing Analytics

Customer needs drive the world. Its not unknown that customer is king. Unless something makes the consumer happy — the product, the marketing campaign and the sales strategies are all pointless. That is where digital analytics comes in the picture. Opinions and arguments don’t matter unless there is data available to back the opinion. Understanding the demographics of the users, their behavior, their likes and dislikes can all be done with the help of digital analytics.

The agenda under the spotlight, however, is that the journey in fact has just begun. The entire world around us recognizes India today as one of most impactful nations across the globe. India is not only a nation of overboiled youth or a multi-diversity culture, but a pool of ideas, development, and progress.

India is futuristic. India is Power.

A Short Fictional Story

I am a writer. I don’t really know what I write about best or who I really am. All I know when someone asks me who I think I am is to tell them that I’m a writer. I don’t know so far what that means to other people. …


Questions in Poetry

Wake up, Grab, wash, walk, talk, pass, tred or sleep again.
Most of us don’t even care as much as a thread strain.
Split, face, meet, waste!
Or turn and communicate!
Learn, gain, search, don’t let it be in vain!
Follow, think, achieve and feel, laugh, jump, or just miss the concept!
Why, am I even asking, right?
Is it scary or its just my fright?
Do I know, or I don’t, I grow or I won’t?
Do I say or I pray or I mourn to their tone?
Do I feel or steal?
or kneel to his deal?
Why, I ask are they all quite?
Is it a protest, revolt, revolution or…


A Poem About Independent Women

Every now and then they’d call me in
To make the trap all spin and make me fall within
But it ain’t happening no more
I’m not a fool anymore
I won’t quit it all down
Or smash it around
Whatever it takes
However hard the way they make
I’m not gonna fall
Or stumble at all
I’ll make way for myself
Not be a slaving elf
What they’ll have is what they never seek
They’re gonna have to weep
For the world they offer is not for me
I’m gonna reach where I want to be
No cliché no paths will I follow
Their prides, they’re gonna have to swallow
And one day they’ll know
You get whatever…

“I’ve known him fourteen years.
He is the only person I’ve spent the maximum time with.
Tonight, I’m walking down the dark road with him and wondering about what the next moment’s gonna be like.
I don’t really have an idea myself so I’m letting him decide what happens further.
He hasn’t made a move yet.
Yet, I’m hoping he will.
I have been talking for the past two hours now and I’m done talking but it seems we are both not done with this walk tonight.
Fourteen years, we’ve cherished and shared this friendship but the flame seems to be ignited in…

A shadow makes me confined
The shape makes me defined
Nowhere near to an identity
My own eyes make me want to be blind
The beauty that’s so untrue
And the world that won’t let you through
Makes me want to know the reasons why
To the person in the mirror, do my eyes lie?
But until today I never realized
How terrified could I be beside
My own territory of the love I’m capable to pursue
But none that I give would be in my lieu
For the voice of someone I love could make me so stupefied
The ultimate opposite of what shall be Erudite
The little cluster of anxiety I foster
The…
