    Here’s what I remember

    White horse, white horse, what have you done

    and where have you brought me

    this land of no sun?

    Memories bad or bittersweet folded into fabrics

    traveled across oceans with me, eaten by moths

    bellies swollen and cut through with threads

    wound by dead fingers, mother’s? Maybe

    What does my mother’s face look like?

    What does a mother make? Babies

    Where are they gone?

    White horse, white horse, where have you gone

    and left me, in a land with sky as white as you

    and milk as thin as the skin on my hands

    and where am I and where are you?

    #it’s my cringe blog and i get to post my escapril poems on it #poetry#writing #bad poems written for fun #heritage#dementia#spilt ink#spilt poetry#grandma#grandmothers#indian diaspora#rupi kaur#my writing

    Just felt inspired so...

    Desi dark academia

    As diaspora in Portugal

    Loving to listen to your nani stories about her childhood And how she met your nana but realizing how fast your family has become westernized

    Loving the smell of the spices everytime you open your kitchen cabinet And the fusion between portuguese And indian cooking

    Buying books and more books that you see in the grocery store or little old shops around the city

    Taking pictures of the architeture and the little tight roads you come across in Porto

    Meeting your mom And going together to buy jhumka and henna cones

    Loving the buy aloo samosas and parle g from your local indian grocery store

    Loving to study Memorial Do Convento in portuguese class And loving to highlight important phrases

    Wearing a choli And party jhumka for your grad pic

    Dancing while listening to classical indian music at midnight

    Wearing a bindi and your hair in a braid And jhumka everyday

    Dreaming to celebrate diwali in homeland

    Drinking chai And haldi doodh, they are your favorite drinks

    Writing poetry everytime you want to vent or when you have a random thought at midnight

    Listening to podcasts about indian culture bc you are so far away and you feel closer as more as you learn

    Lightning diyas in christmas with maa for world peace

    These are somethings based on my own life And experience as diaspora here in Portugal :3

    I love how the silk shines

    How the flowers are woven

    On the border or my saree

    Its crazy to think how i refused it

    How i refused what goes in my veins

    To please a society

    Where my birth is already a sin

    A minha avó a mim me contou

    Que lá na sua juventude usava branco nos funerais

    Onde está o branco ? Agora tudo se tornou preto

    Os meus ouvidos que daqueles lábios

    Palavras em Kannada e Português ouviram

    Onde está “ಶರಣು “ ? Agora só há português

    Oh como se perdeu tão rápido

    Tradições de milénios e milénios

    Ó Portugal colonizador

    Ó minha Índia que tão perdida e que tão longe estas

    Mas que mesmo assim és tão minha

    Como eu sou tua

    Hoe wij hier ook samen kwamen

Since Suriname is an ethnic and cultural melting pot, there are however, several other diasporic communities. One of those communities is the Surinamese Indian diaspora or the Hindustani as we call them in Suriname. After slavery was officially abolished in 1863…

    I think I like anthro bc sociology is usually focused on social problems / constructs while anthro is about like culture and the world in general.

    I like sociology but I end up so depressed every quarter lol! So it's nice to have a class about monkeys, or food or something lol!

    #i'm taking a class on brazilian amazonian cultures in the summer #and a class on indian diaspora film in fall and they both sound really neat!! #personal

    What a complicated relationship i have with you

    I dont know if i avoid you

    Or if i hug you

    Or if i love you

    Your offspring have mistreated me
