Pride parades are crazy good. I cannot emphasize enough on how everyone should attend these atleast once. I cannot wait for the time when these parades happen all over the nation and I really hope it is not far away. This year was my first time and this was my constant expression and mood. Happiness flows in the air and through your body. You look at everyone a bit different than usual, everyone seems prettier than usual, the world seems different and happier than usual. People are screaming and shouting and chanting, they are so full of rage and love at the same time. Everyone looks so pretty, so fucking pretty and so fucking happy. You come across such creativity, witty posters, angry slogans, beautiful face and body make up, amazing costumes(I mean we all fell in love with those beauties in rainbow sarees, right?). The colors everywhere, from the balloons in the sky, the flags, the caps and capes to the faces, jhumkas, bags and badges, are so mesmerizing. A special s/o to the people who came along with their kids and to the school kids who came with that b'ful banner. And once you attend this kind of a event you realize that Pride doesn't only give people a space to voice their opinions on gender equality and LGBTQIA+ , it is much more than that, it is a space where you are free to feel, dance, sing, wear what you want, laugh and live, and you feel safe, very safe. I really wish I get to do this every year. #lgbtqia#pride 🌈 #pride2018 #🌈
I rarely write long captions, but today I will because I have an exam tomorrow and I can do everything but study for it.
In the past few weeks, I have heard how people mistakenly use the phrase 'old school' where they are talking about toxic orthodox shit. For instance, I heard Shilpa Shetty say in a video how she is old school and let's the man take charge of her. Another day, I heard some guy say that he was too old school to express emotions. And we all hear the 'old school' idea of romance(totally fucked up, especially in bollywood) and relationships in our daily lives. You cannot justify your lack of growth and participation in evolution by calling yourself 'old school'. Old school is probably writing letters. But the shit I mentioned before is not the 'old school' but clearly the 'wrong school'. ________________________________________________________Picture creds: @harshitasingh98
