Eeriness of Human Psyche as represented in KiranManral’s Missing, Presumed Dead(2018). “I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.”(34), says Kahlil Gibran .The human mind is a source of mystery for psychologists, psychiatrists, writers, and all those who deal with its structure and functioning. Since the human mind is a set of faculties like memory, thought, will, imagination and sensation, it plays a significant role in controlling human behaviour. Even though it is t ..read more

#Rising30 : Women’s Month May Be Over, But Our Reading Does Not Have To Be
Kiran Manral | Indian Writer

Review: The women in this collection too, come from various fields of work, and action as well as varying socio-cultural, and economic backgrounds. They are pathbreakers, shatterers of glass ceilings and are all warriors in their own rights.

There is no age limit to pursuing your dreams, and the only thing that stands in one’s w ..read more
