Five Great Songs That Captured Deviant Gender Identities

It wasn’t in vain that John Lennon’s words, “Imagine all the people, living life in peace” became the mouthpiece of revolution in the 60s that encouraged inclusion and tolerance. The song has, since then, been extended in interpretation to include various minority groups for which it has translated into an anthem.

Beloved: A Harrowing Classic

Beloved is at once an insight into nineteenth century American slavery and its aftereffects, as well as a haunting experience of filicide, a mother killing her own daughter in order to save her from the stranglehold of slavery. Thematically, the book is all shades of grey, diving into the exclusivity of a Black voice and experience. It doesn’t set the question of race away from the killing of Beloved, the eponymous dead baby who returns as a beautifully grown adult girl in a surrealistic horrific twist.

Not many people my age prefer reading John Green’s books terming them childish and clichéd.

After all, which (semi) intellectual would ever confess to reading, or wanting to read a book so strongly advocated by the resident Hollywood wild-child? When my granny lent me the book, I dismissed it immediately. However, sheer boredom eventually overcame me and I decided to give it a try. And much like Miss Spears, I was hooked from the first page itself!

Maya Angelou: What Can We Learn From Her?

She defied all the norms. Standing tall and talking in a majestic tone, she was no less than a queen. Born Marguerite Ann Johnson, Ms. Maya Angelou was known for many things: her wisdom, her activism, her acting, her singing, but most of all, for her writing.

A Classic Pick

It’s 2014. Everything’s digital. Ordering food, staying in touch, talking to friends even buying presents—the internet can do all. Reading books online is also of the many things that come with being a part of the digital generation. But here’s the thing: I love reading a book that I can hold in my hand. Regardless, with summer vacations around the corner, maybe you could try your hand at a reading bucket list.
