Love

#Perspective / The science behind love: A biological ballet, an endocrine euphony

It often elicits an unexplainable sensation — the most enigmatic force that has influenced centuries of philosophical discourse, poetry, and literature. However, in reality, love can be understood through scientific means.

‘Will you be my Valentine?’ and other expensive offers

In the end, love is a personal matter and it should remain so, regardless of how it comes out on February 14 and in the days that follow.

Have we outgrown emotional intimacy?

An almost unavoidable part of discussing relationships in today’s world would be Gen Z's relationship terminology

Celebrating Galentine’s Day on a budget

The spirit of Valentine's Day isn't just reserved for romantic partners – it's also about cherishing all forms of love, including platonic love.

BOOK REVIEW: FICTION / Girlfriends, girlhood and everything else Dolly Alderton knows about love

Review of "Everything I Know About Love: A Memoir" (Penguin, 2018)

POETRY / Love is a law

For once, can love look like a Sunday morning; filled with warmth, calmness and motionless?

Why we find it difficult to accept love at times

Some of us are afraid of becoming stuck because we owe too much to our relationships. We make an effort to give more than we receive to avoid feeling compelled or indebted.

Poetry / Little bits of love that remain

Your tea in the kettle, piping hot water/ No sugar, so that you can really taste the tea on your tongue

POETRY / Love, when you’re an adrenaline junky

And in spite of knowing this/ In spite of the absurdity of it all/ You let yourself fall

Diphylleia grayi

The burst of fragrant marigolds on the blanched porch of our old Calcutta home, free like sand, unbridled like the wind
