Things White Girls Say To South Asian ‘Brown’ Girls (Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi so on)

The Human Lens

Few days ago I wrote the post, “Things White Men Say to South Asian Women” and it received quite interesting feedback, but some got offended and couldn’t find the humor. Anyways today I am bringing part II of the story, now this video has been produced for all brown and South Asian folks, whether you’re Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Kashmiri, Sri Lankan, Nepalese, from the Maldives, or part of the greater diaspora, or share an ethnic ancestry with any of the above.

This is a collaboration of two very talented South Asians, Sameer Asad Gardezi, an award-winning Pakistani AmericanMuslimscreenwriter and television writer and the super insanely talented American actress and writer/ comedian Kosha Patel very well-known for Miss India America, The Indian and the Samurai and off course this hilarious video Shit White Girls Say… To Brown Girls that went viral. 

Truly this one is for anyone and everyone who wants to have…

Things White Men Say to South Asian Women

The Human Lens

Truthfully speaking this post may be a big hard for people to digest as the title suggests, but having said that I would like to clarify that such attitudes are not representative of all “white man” but there are countless of white men that engage into such behavior the moment they come into interaction with South Asian women. In an effort to get to know, date or.. well just for the heck of it, a one night stand, these following questions and comments are sent our way.

1. You’re too cute to be Pakistan (apply Indian/Bangladeshi etc for rest of S. Asian nations) 

Woah, did I hear you right. Is that supposed to be a compliment from where you come from? Let me make it clear that such a phrase is not a compliment when you are surprised that I look good despite my ethnicity. And yes I do come…

Eid Fever Part I| American Consulate Celebrates Eid With Pakistanis

The Human Lens

KARACHI: During Ramazan 2015, the employees of the US Consulate General reveled in the first ever iftar dinner with their local friends in true Pakistani style. The participating team were interviewed by local media to shared this experience and have said that they really enjoyed the fervor of sharing and caring and learned many interesting things related to the blessed month of Ramazan.

After their first iftar with Pakistani friends, they also received many more such invitations by Karachities. Overwhelmed and humbled, the US Consulate spent the first day of Eid with another Pakistani family and that experience was beyond magical according to them.

They loved celebrating Eid with our friends, exchanging gifts, and enjoying traditional Pakistan Eid snacks. The team wishes fellow Pakistanis a wonderful Eid in the country’s national language Urdu with words  “Aap sab ko bohat bohat Eid Mubarak!”


Mehndi (heena) is an important part of Eid festivities and ladies of…

Casa care adăposteşte gânduri • Editura Excelsior Art


iscoadă activă
mă ademenește spre o lumea confuză

mă așteaptă pe un colț de stâncă prăvălită

între lumea confuză și colțul de stâncă

o adiere de vară pârjolită
mă duce spre un râu de lumini nearmonioase
răsfirându-mi gândul
într-o cascadă de sunete false

dinspre lumea imaginară
un ghem incandescent se rostogolește
spre colțul de stâncă

peste râul de lumini nearmonioase
plutește în derivă
visul plăsmuit pe când doream
cerul să-mi fie capăt de drum

mă împovărează cu o sarcină de frică

dinspre real
teama se estompează
un sentiment de liniște stabilă
ia locul energiei pierdute prin derută

formează o ceață plutitoare
peste o lume diferită

lumea în care pentru o zi
am pierdut contactul cu mine însămi

din volumul (în curs de apariție) Ritual în absență, Corina Victoria Sein, Editura Excelsior Art,

Where is this evil monster?
Your dragon is there.

You want to sleep with mom.
Our teddies protect us.

Actress Maude Fealy Postcard
Actress Maude Fealy [1883-1971] Postcards

The American actress Maude Fealy was an exquisite beauty whose career encompassed everything from stage performances in the US, Canada and Britain, as well as silent movies and talking pictures.

She was born in 1883 in Tennessee and died in Los Angeles in 1971. Her mother, Margaret, was an actress and drama teacher so it comes as no surprise to learn that Maude made her stage debut at the age of three in her mother’s production of Faust.

She married an English drama critic in 1907, Louis Sherwin, who wrote for a newspaper in Denver. Her parents were not fans of their daughter’s husband and did everything they could to ruin the marriage; the result was successful and the pair divorced in 1909.

Her second marriage to actor James Durkin sparked the formation of a travelling theatre troupe called the Fealy-Durkin Stock Company. This marriage did…

The pastoral tradition — whether poetry, music, literature or painting — has long been popular, particularly the art of the 19th century when Victorians lapped up engaging scenes of country life. It was an idealised version of the truth which has led to the erroneous assumption that life in the countryside is a deal more peaceful and beautiful than town. It’s an assumption that pertains to this day and there are many who tell a tale of moving away from the relentless struggle in the cities, perhaps buying a small holding, only to discover that it is a good deal smellier and dirtier than town and earning enough to survive is well-nigh impossible. There are exceptions, of course, but unless you’ve had a countryside upbringing, it can come as a shock.

Experiment in Three Color Photography, by Edward Steichen. Camera Work No 15, 1906

“When I first became interested in photography… my idea was to have it recognized as one of the fine arts. Today I don’t give a hoot in hell about that. The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each man to himself. And that is the most complicated thing on earth and also as naïve as a tender plant.”
