  • Sarah Anjum Bari

    Sarah Anjum Bari is a ravisher of caffeine and prose, with a heart that lives in Parisian cafes.

  • In memory of a loud, brilliant, hilarious lady

    It was a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman of good breeding must be in search of a life led in humble anonymity.
  • What's in a pseudonym?

    A few years ago, I collaborated with a friend to write about the double standards young girls face in Bangladesh.
  • My Bollywood love affair

    You know that imaginary friend that every child grows up with? Mine was Rahul. Not a storybook character or a person I'd made up at random, but the Rahul of the dimpled smiles and a necklace that spelled 'COOL'.
  • Amidst the fear of terrorism, a reassurance

    This baggage will be an inescapable part of our reality for the years to come. But the memory of Faraaz's actions lightens the load.

  • The burden of 'manning up'

    Watching television snuggled between my parents or grandparents; talking to them for hours; rubbing their feet when they were tired from work. On quite a few of these occasions, my father will say something that he means as a compliment, but one that takes me by surprise every time. He wonders aloud if I'd still be spending time with them this way if I were a son. I argue, every time, that that's beside the point.
