Hazy Dreams and Reflections

Do we have a dearth of woman writers? – It seems every other shelf in the library fiction section is overflowing with Woman authors. Every other novel seems to be written by women. Why do we even have to think that there is a deficiency? Then I found my answer here – The second shelf. It tells you exactly how the top creamy layer of Literary fiction reflects the status quo of gender disparity in all the other streams of life. Woman writers are there, but mostly deemed to be on the second shelf knowingly or unknowingly. Literature awards, renowned reading lists – the top is brimming with male authors with a very few mentions of noteworthy female writers.

This reminded me of my own self portrait I tried doing sometime back and almost after 40 mins of struggle I finally got the photograph I liked. Not a great one and I did not edit it much, but I kind of liked it. It was also a B & W one and that is my only self portrait photograph I have got framed. Even though I was a little chubbier (a nicer way to say I was fat that time) I still feel happy when I see that photograph because of not the face in it, but the effort that went into it. I am yet to do one that will include my tattoo and may be a pinhole one. It involves a lot of time and patience but it sure is fun. Even though sometimes all the clicks come to naught.
