It was the summer of 2010, and Ramadan had just arrived. After the shenanigans of my brother’s wedding and everything that comes with that just a couple of weeks prior to the holy month, we now had a new sister-in-law in the house and that first suhoor together...read more
“Morning! How are you?” I asked, my voice groggy with sleep and pain. “Urm, I’m good, just so saddened and shocked to hear the news from New Zealand, this morning…” “I haven’t seen the news yet,” I cut in, trying to speak quickly through the pain eating through my...read more
Let's continue... If you haven't read Part One of this story yet, you can do so here. The Holiday In early May 2011, a few weeks before my Uncle passed on, my old best friend and I had booked our first holiday away together, flying early June. To say that we were...read more
They don’t write songs about this kind of stuff – I don’t think they really write much about this kind of stuff, to be honest. But it happens; and the pain that is left behind is so open, so exposing, so raw and so real that you’d think people would speak about...read more
Turning 30 & A Midi-Life Crisis So it’s official - I am now in the dirty thirties! I’m not gonna lie to you, I did kind of make the build up to the big day slightly more dramatic in my head than turning 30 actually was, but since turning 30 is the next big...read more
I read the words in the business email I’d received earlier that morning, and although I knew it was coming, it still felt like someone had taken a giant, iron fist and punched me right in the gut. This has happened before and I’ve definitely been there...read more

As a child and even well into my adolescence, I was taught to believe that a Muslim woman marrying outside of her religion was the worst thing she could do. Deep inside, even from a young age, I questioned such ideologies however, and never really...read more
I was born to write. Ever since I was a little girl, with a big gap-toothed smile and crazy, curly hair, walking around like a miniature female version of my dad, words have always been my friends. Books became my whole world, losing myself in them as I escaped the...read more
There is a problem in South Asian communities – even among South Asians born and brought up in western 21st century Britain. That problem is one of superiority and one that as a professional henna artist I have experienced first hand one too many times. Back in...read more
When I first started writing for the newspaper here in Mauritius back in 2015, I sat down with le husband and compiled a list of inspiring Mauritian humans that I would like to interview. Shelina Permalloo, the 2012 BBC Masterchef winner, was on that list and so the...read more
Every time I think about what happened on that awful night one year ago in one of the richest cities in the world, my stomach turns and my heart skips a beat. I am well aware that truly horrible things happen all around the world on a daily basis, but there is...read more
Paul Choy is a man of many talents but is most well known for his photojournalism – and someone that I am incredibly inspired by in my own work. Anyone will tell you that his work is enriching, moving and beautiful but more impactful for me is the effortless way in...read more
“be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This conscious blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.
I write about my own life and experiences, social problems and global issues as well as things that make life more beautiful for me – such as art, music and so much more.
So basically, this is me and my varied blog – striving every single day to become the change that I wish to see to help make our world a brighter, happier and safer place for us all. Join me?
