An Ordinary Girl —Ishita Gupta

“An ordinary girl in fancy outfits.” An invisible label on her head. Her journey ridiculed and hardships neglected, Her blood now, a fierce shade of red. Stepped on the stage with poise and grace, Determined to unleash her true colours. A soft start with a perfect arabesque, En pointe back curved to the side, other. Immersed herselfContinue reading “An Ordinary Girl —Ishita Gupta”

We talked, smiled,Continue reading “The Mid Nights- Qweisie Sparrow (Pee Kay)”
