Is Hodan reading my blog? Is she? Is she stalking my blog? As soon as I update the blog with Syama's latest, Hodan responds with a stunning photo. You should see the awesome, true, flawless melanin. I swear the woman must be stalking my blog. Does she think I am cheating on her or something?

She must have noticed that I haven't yet created a Hodan - Best of 2018. My bad. I am certain she uploaded it just to make me aware than I haven't finished some 2018 work. I get that and I most abjectly and grovellingly apologize. Here you are my love in all your melanated glory.

Me, My Self and Syama

Goddess Heaven!! Just a few days ago Syama uploaded some photos and within one minute, yes within one minute it appeared on my Instagram. One minute!! As in 60 seconds!!

Can you imagine that? I don't know what good deeds I may have performed to merit such good fortune.

These photos are so beautiful I have to save them for posterity. Yes, because people change their minds and hide or delete their very best photos (Hodan knows who I mean). Life has never the same since Syama deleted her Facebook and Mangala-vati trimmed her feed. These photos are enough to keep me in clover for life. Posterity will thank me for appropriating these photos.

Colourism - The Book

This is a book on my thoughts on Colourism and I suppose this is my own foreword to my own book. It isn't a book yet, but I intend to organize it better. I have been thinking of the issue of colourism for quite a while, and I feel that I won't be at peace until I compose my thoughts about it properly. What has bothered me most is the feeling that it is not being tackled the right way, that most of the people discussing are not proceeding from the viewpoint of reforming society.
