Earrings made from Electronic Components

I love combining craft with my passions- Harry Potter, dragons- and most recently, electronic components from old devices. I love making earrings. There's something very satisfying about making tiny replicas of a thing you love and wearing them. I was inspired by the folks at the Makerspace and Quest Lab at IIT Delhi to make...

I was recently selected for a bootcamp at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.

Polymer Clay Crystal Octopus

A family friend of mine recently gifted me a huge batch of crystals. (Thank you 🙂 ) I've been toying around with the idea of combining clay with minerals, glass and stones for a while now. But 11th grade has successfully killed all of those plans. Regardless, a couple weeks ago school was a little... Continue Reading →

2020 wrapped: Year in Review

I read this joke somewhere. 2020 was a unique year because it had 29 days in February, 53 Wednesdays, and 6 months in April. And if that isn't true I don't know what is. Especially the last few months, from August, passed in a blur. Where did the time go? I was just moping around... Continue Reading →

Why You should Craft and be Terrible at It

I was four when I made my first discernible clay piece. It was a gift for my parents' anniversary. My parents were so proud of me when I made it, though when I look back at it now I suspect that was out of nicety rather than appreciation.  It’s been ten years since then and... Continue Reading →

Why Exams should be held amid COVID-19

This was an op-ed I wrote for my writing community. I don't agree with this, but wanted to write it to see if I could make a persuasive point. The COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted our lives. In recent times many debate whether or not exams should take place. For us to come out of this... Continue Reading →
