And I asked her, "how do I make peace with the fact that one day my parents won't be alive?"
"You won't", she said. "But life goes on in times of war too. Peace is not a prerequisite for being alive. You'll learn to not flinch or cry at the mention of their name, and you'll go to work and watch television and cook noodles the way they always made."
-Ritika Jyala, excerpt from The Flesh I Burned

All my grief says the same thing鈥 this isn't how it's supposed to be. And the world laughs, holds my hope by my throat, says: but this is how it is.

being desi is listening to taylor swift and one direction and kpop to get yourself into everyone else's pop culture, but then hearing a song of your mothertongue on the radio and realizing that no other language can touch your soul like your own language.

It wasn't the kind of yearning they describe in movies and books, it was ugly and desperate. I wanted something to hold on to, a breath, a whisper, a hand. I'm sorry I dug my nails too deep but when a ship is sinking, it'll tear everything apart (including itself), just to survive.

That's the thing about people who haven't been loved much..They think about every kind gesture, a slightest touch of fingers, kind smiles, random acts of love, intimacy in every small thing done. They find that love wherever they can cause it was never given to them freely. They don't ask for love, they search for it everywhere.

concept: two indian high school girls fall in love, desi dark academia style. imagine them carefully braiding each other鈥檚 hair in the school restroom while discussing mughal history. sneaking an old ipod to school and listening to sufi and carnatic music together on the weary bus ride back home. doing everything together, they鈥檙e as inseparable as two girl best friends can get. going to book stores or libraries on weekends and spending hours reading sitting next to each other, and then having an intense discussion over chai and vada pav at a small stand. coming back from coaching classes in the evenings, holding hands as their jhumkas twinkle under the streetlights. texting each other at 5 in the morning while stuck on homework. holding hands, hugging ten times a day and cheek kisses are normal, and they never realize their feelings for each other until an accidental forehead touch in a doorway, glancing at each other鈥檚 lips and breathing heavily. not choosing to date for fear of ruining their academic careers and remaining best friends. finally getting together when by a stroke of good luck, they both make it to their common dream college and have a celebratory kiss when one goes to the others house to break the good news in person. just, two desi girls falling in love; enamored by the world around them, its knowledge and each other.
