My First Murakami!

My Halloween Reading List!

I was not planning on reading a lot this Halloween because Stranger Things is coming back with a new season, but I am now. I frankly do not know why. If you know me, you know that I hate reading horror. Absolutely! But I gave a little though and I came to the conclusion that…

If you do not know what Diwali is, click here and get some reading done! Let me state a few things first before I get shot in the head for writing this post! I am not an anti-nationalist I am not against Hinduism (but that doesn’t imply that I am for it) I love Motichoor…

4 Halloween Things I Have Never Done (But Always Wanted To)

First up, I live in India. Halloween? It is not a thing here. Unlike Christmas, which is a very popular festival (especially in Kolkata, the city I live in), the British colonialism somehow forgot to leave behind Halloween altogether!
