Author Radhika Gopakumar

My friends say I am a very hyperactive, noisy person; although my blogs might not reflect that. I blog mainly about confused feelings I get from insane reveries I have.

Man Vs Dogs? No, Man Vs Man!

Many years ago, there was a guy who I had to unfriend and block on Facebook for putting up the same comment under every post of mine – about how all of Kerala was a hellhole owing to the then-recent… Continue Reading →

My Super-slow Journey of Healing

Reading through “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe as part of my curriculum during my B.A. course was when I first thought, consciously I mean, about my fear of becoming my mother, just like the protagonist Okonkwo lives his entire… Continue Reading →

Mommy Ramblings – #31

Me: Vedu, Amma is a very hungry caterpillar. Vedu (Looking at me with all sincerity in her eyes): No, you are a very pretty butterfly. Yeah, it’s true what they say. Kids most certainly don’t lie! Now let me get… Continue Reading →
