  • Now it's time to name our child.
    Ankita Kulkarni | 16-Jan-2017
    Now it's time to name our child. Siddharth,Rahul or Rohan. I was named Ankita, an "anguthachaap". My bother Aniket, one withought a house. Or parents were mocked. We were laughed at, for having such inauspicious names. So now it's time to name our child. How do u decide? What to pick withought it being misinterpreted? A God's name. A philosophical meaning. Something from the Vedas? And now it's time  to name our child. A name we can proudly say. Withought mockery,withought contempt. With our heads held high.

  • IS WAR GOOD OR BAD?
    Ankita Kulkarni | 06-Jul-2017
    The Oxford dictionary describes war as “A state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states and nations”. It also describes it as,”The art or science of warfare”. But is war really an art? Is there any scientific aspect to it? Is war good or bad is a very common question that is asked all around the world. But is there really a correct answer to this question. As the Oxford dictionary says, it is a hostile conflict between two or more nations. This hostility emerges due to either conflicting ideas or disobeying of laws. Laws are created and kept in place to maintain peace and discipline in any society. Breaking any of these laws leads to chaos which further leads to war. Similarly, when two or more nations have conflicting ideas over a common issue such as the India Pakistan conflict over the occupancy of Kashmir, it leads to war. But why do we need war? Coming back to the question of is war good or bad, I would start by asking that do we really need war? In a wo

  • REVIEW OF A FRENCH CAFE
    Ankita Kulkarni | 07-Jul-2017
    Standing in the busy streets of Paris, I heard a woman besides me exclaim in French, “C’est tellement magnifique!”  standing at the entrance of the famous French café,” Café Gourmand”. And I agreed with her looking at the intricately carved doorway of the café, its windows glittering with bright yellow lights. In between the windows, you could see lush green ivy climbing the walls. Above the windows, the words “Café Gourmand Since 1887” were put up in bold letters with small lights twinkling on them. Café Gourmand was considered to be one of the oldest cafes in Paris. Besides the board, you could see the French flag fluttering in the winds with pride.  There were small round tables situated inside as well as outside of the café. You could see people sitting outside smoking a pipe with a large cup of coffee or a glass of beer in their hands. It is the Parisian tradition to just sit back, relax and sip coffee as you id

  • Ghost Memories
    Ankita Kulkarni | 18-Jun-2018
    They lurk Like the red eyed monsters At the back of our minds Ready to cast a shadow Like a grey cloud Of fear and doubt They are the ghosts Lurking in the attics Of our minds Born through the power Of bad experiences and mistrust Ready to taint The happy memories With their darkness To make you fear Their very existence To never allow you To enjoy the good Withough felling their shadows Cast upon your mind Why, O Why Can you not disappear In a whisp of smoke Allowing me to bask In the true happiness Of my new memories Why, O Why Won't you allow me To forget the darkness That tries To rear its head Every time I wish To make new memories Why, O Why Must you drive me To words and acts That I will regret From time to time For I know that memories Are the true ghosts Of our lives

  • •	The Traditional Vs The Modern Aspect of Literature
    Ankita Kulkarni | 23-Jul-2018
    The era of the most famous authors from Britain such as William Shakespeare, Wordsworth and the Bronte sisters was considered to be the most traditional and classical age of English literature. During this era, the writers would be seen sitting on a faraway hill along a flowing river, looking at the blooming flower or the birds singing softly in the trees, which would inspire and motivate them to come up with sonnets or poems. Others would have experienced such severe traumas in their life that their grief would be expressed through their writings. Social pressures, political feudsand deaths would play a major role in igniting the inner flames of expressions of these writers. Their excerpts would have such deep meanings and soulful words that even after centuries, their works would have an extensive impact on the entire world. Their writings expressed feelings with profound vividness and emotion which created freedom of expression. One of Shakespeare’s most famous dialogue from his play Merchant of Venice, “I
