Student Corner

  • It was a rather dull Monday morning and one of those usual high school days, where your alarm goes off and you think to yourself, do I really need education?
    After a lot of struggling to get out of bed, here I was in class trying to make sense of the graph on the board but the only thought...

  • Political discourse is often ignored in a discussion of the question of sovereignty blah blah blah…
    Cue: Amber Run – I found
    In my opinion, listening to good music while writing a 2000 word research paper is probably one of the biggest mistakes a law student can commit. Being...

  • The first day of unpacking,
    of fears and belongings.
    In the sea of new faces,
    young adults were set loose.
    A hushed feeling of homesickness,
    spaced loud chatters and exchanged-smiles.
    One moment names exchanged, the next forgotten.
    First impressions of...

  • Depression is an insidious malady, and although due recognition is given to its effects, the forms in which it manifests are quite different. Even with World Suicide Prevention Day being observed on the 10th of September every year, the work done by those studying and helping others through the...

  • I was recently introduced to the story of the Terezin Requiem, where in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt, around 150 people found rebellion against the Nazis through the music of Verdi. They were sent there to die, and eventually they did meet their deaths, with each of them knowing...

  • Must we only care about something when it affects us? Human beings are selfish, and even when selfless, will act only if there exists some benefit through happiness, content, or material gain. So logically, it probably makes sense to only care for ourselves. I’m sure it is, to mind one’s own...

  • Life in University can be stressful. But even otherwise, have there even been those people who get on your nerves – for some or no reason at all? Have there ever been instances where you’ve felt your head split open with hate and then you go ‘whoa where did that come from’. Have you ever been...

  • This is the first poem in a series of poems that explore what the commonplace objects in a student’s life would say if they underwent an Enid Blyton-esque change overnight, and could speak.

  • Once you get that acceptance letter and you begin packing your bags the word that comes to my mind is, home.
    Home for the next x number of years.
    When you’re in the car/plane/bus/train or whatever mode of transport you’re using to get to your new home, the next word that comes to my...

  • A year ago, I was faced with the terrifying possibility of moving to a University so far away from home and comfort and round-the-clock nachos – an opportunity that I was desperate to accept but also regard with suspicion because, you see, I’m not a person of the outernet. It was a chance I had...

  • Studying in the school that I did, between the ages of 4 and 10 we would go on a field trip every month. We’d be piled up into a bus complete with colourful baskets, water bottles with pictures of Dora on them, and self-appointed buddies. I can assure you that this process of picking a buddy was...
