The Awakening

-Sanyukta Kamath

The awakening is a realisation. It is the understanding that we are scared of ourselves. Our lights simply shine darkness on us, our shadows are our reminders of the horrifying fantasy that we are living in, and that it is consuming us. The fading orange of the petrified sun is no different than the impatient flame that flickers on the closed eyelids of one standing in the light. We fail to acknowledge our demons even though we recognise them. 

Our own walls carry the daggers, and own hands have ripped our ears out when we can not hear the piercing cries and the deafening screams of our conscience.





























A Devastating Exhibition: Muhammad Othman Ghani 10 D

The reason that the human mind cannot imagine non-existence is probably due to the fact that our imagination is based on our senses. That is to say, in order to truly feel non-existent we must stop feeling, which would imply that there is no true answer to the inevitably flawed question: How would it feel to be non-existent?




Luminescence: Sachit Lumba 10D

The world can be a grim, gloomy place. Yet, even in the darkest of times, the power and energy of light never ceases to shine through. These pictures epitomize the few rays of light, of hope that shines through even the darkest of plights. Light can travel immeasurable distances, in the flash of a moment this relentlessness shows us that, in simply trying to be sources of positive energy, we can light up the whole world.

hues of blue: Sanjana Jain 10D

These photographs represent the shades of blue of the seemingly endless ocean, as well as the elegant sky. They show the gentle waves crashing softly against the sandy beach, as the sun is shining on the rippling blue water while its golden light illuminates the ocean floor. The hues of blue, though vividly contrasting, give the eye a sense of calm and internal harmony.

Soc’eye’tal Pressure: Viva Motwani 10C

Over here glasses and lenses behave as a metaphor for the changes one makes, due to the expectations from society. The often overlooked pressure relating to these ordinary objects enhances how important physical appearance has become to young teenagers. At first, the glasses seem to present a vivid picture of life, but after being broken, reality changes. The broken glasses are accompanied by fewer flowers and a distorted background, which indicate the consequences related to disposing of those items that comfort you. The swollen eye and person crying while attempting to then wear a contact lens further signifies the pain caused by the transition from glasses to lenses. The series as a whole aims to inform viewers about the discomfort and pain people are willing to endure to look ‘good’.





the tangent fighting the curve;
the curve enticing the line;
friction and frigidity,
the line once adhering is now defiant.





resist the monotony,
find what you love and let it smother you,
immerse yourself in its art-
live in oil paint;
vivid and scattered on a messy canvas,
in its entirety and solitude;
unhinge from the faded watercolour,
find what you love and let it kill you.
