“Luminous” – Nayana Nair

The night doesn’t quite reach my land.There are columns and mountains of lightthat my people have given themselves to.

“Beg ” – Nayana Nair

Everything I look at is sweet impression of your younger self playing in the garden of my heart. The shrads from this broken world stuck in everything around me. Why is it that when I look at a bus stop, when I look at the sky, when I look at the chairs, when I lookContinue reading ““Beg ” – Nayana Nair”
