About me

fields of expertise

When I am not analyzing essays and theories as a part of my academic work, I try to pen down my thoughts in the form of poetry and short stories which I often post on my social media handle. I have always been quite intrigued by the local art forms and so I research about the indigenous art forms of India and also write blogs on the various painting and embroidery forms in our country. Being a part of the literary associations is something that I have been doing since my school days and am currently the head editor of the college's monthly magazine. I also do freelancing work as a content writer and often take part in the weekend projects of my college's NGO.

My profile

Hello! My name is Brahmneet Kaur, I am 19 years old and am from India. Currently, I am pursuing an undergraduate degree in English Honours from Christ (Deemed to be University), Bangalore, India. As someone who belongs to a family who suffered and survived during the 1947 India-Pakistan partition as well as 1984 killings, I have always felt that there are stories and memories present everywhere in our country that are so precious and essential but often remain hidden because not many people are willing to go and search for them. Inspired from the stories in my family I have this belief that it is very important to look at the other side of history, the one which talks more about people and less about statistics, more about emotions and less about theories. Coming from a country whose multiculturalism is both a boon and a bane, I feel if we make our history more humane, if we try and bring out stories of the people who have suffered, fought and survived the various incidents in the past, we will be able to broaden our understanding of others, we will be more empathetic and the stories will help us find answers to our questions as well as help in establishing a more just society where we can try and prevent anything as such from happening again. Keeping all this in mind, I want to be a collector of such stories, and establish a medium from where these stories and memories of the common people around us can be accessed and then spread among the masses.
