A study published not too long ago showed that ‘some men avoid green or eco-friendly
behaviour because they did not want to be perceived as feminine and/or gay.’

The Cambridge Dictionary describes toxic masculinity as “the way that
men should behave that are seen as harmful, for example the idea that men
should not cry or admit weakness”.

have to be hard – is that we leave them with very fragile egos.”

POETRY - LIVES MATTER

STORY - PRIDE

story 1.jpeg

1st Position- Prabhav Tripathi

My thoughts often fly to a question of rumination and surprise,
How does this “society” measure the value of lives?
Why does it simply disregard the presence of anxiety and depression?
Why does it treat the pride community as some sort of infection?

2nd Position- Muskan Mehta

Forlorn and an estranged soul,

Shattered like trustless glass.

Lost in the mystifying woods,

In the quest of empathetic trees.

Abandoned by the world,

who painted everlasting prejudice

on the canvas of her mind.

Seeked solace under the virginal white glimmer.

Mirage of thoughts owed her an eternal rest.

Thought of herself as an empty space,

Absolutely barren, denuded of hues.

He went through it quietly,
Though he was in immense pain,
He knew they would never understand,
For, their skin colour wasn’t the same.
Did he not have… the same blood? She didn’t say a word,
Though she was deeply hurt within,
She stayed shut because she was a girl.

I hugged my legs even closer to my chest, trying to become smaller and get enfolded in this darkness.
Leaning against this open field's railing, I get startled when I hear a weird noise.
Glancing towards the source of disturbance, I curse myself, rather colourfully if I may add.

He stumbled into the thrift store with his friend, nervous, fidgety, tugging at the sleeves of his hoodie. He
went straight for the trial room, took off his bag, and locked himself in, and turned to look at himself in
the mirror.

An instance I encountered in grade 7 th .I can recount every bit
clearly because it changed my outlook forever. This incident
highlighted the cruelty prevalent in our society. Despite the
enactment of section 377 our society has time and again
failed to accept the reality of homosexuals.
