Nav K, society (ad verse)

(Source: navk)


A woman’s body is not democracy.
You have no right to it, no entitlement.
No mandate to vote on it,
or otherwise treat a body
as a vehicle for debate
over conditions you cannot ever
biologically comprehend.
I look around me sometimes,
and grow afraid of myself.
I look around me sometimes,
and I hate what I see.
I look around me at the wolves,
salivating from their eyes,
paws itching from the
venom in their veins,
noses sniffing for ill opportunity.
I look around me sometimes,
and I see a battle for territory,
the severing of blood ties over
a thrill they are apt to call their own.
But a woman’s body is not yours.
Understand this: regardless of
chromosomal arrangement
we are all capable of cruelty,
of both thought and action.
But how can we say to have progressed
if the majority still behave like animals,
and then convince the rest that
we are, indeed, civilized?
Nav K, Meditation on Wolves (via navk)

Dare to be
someone’s
excuse to
breathe
Nav K, to breathe and be breathless

Resistance against anything at all is only effective for so long. But resistance is necessary; it builds awareness, it educates. And it shouldn’t stop there. The idea is not only to resist, but exist. And in order to do that, we need to invite one another to the idea of co-existing.

It is often the most basic things that we need to remind ourselves about. We’re human, after all. This is an idea I try to emphasize in my book, By Bodies of Water.

It’s finally here. Finally complete. This project has been my baby since its conception (pun partially intended). I don’t mean to brag, and I rarely ever do, but it’s absolutely beautiful. This is the result of two years worth of research, a year worth of writing, rewriting, editing, and twenty years of experience. As well as the tremendous time and effort put in by two extremely talented artists: my brilliant illustrator Ravneet Sehmbi ( ravsehmbi ) & my technical consultant/graphic designer for everything, my brother Naafi ( xafain ) . This book is my pride. Not because I’ve spent so much time on it, but because it encompasses the collective journey of so many. This book is about immigrants, and seeing as we are literally a country made up of immigrants, I hope you are able to find yourself somewhere in these words and illustrations. By Bodies of Water - Available worldwide beginning August 17 on Amazon and other major online retailers wherever books are sold.

If your tears should produce rivers that shape  landscapes,  let your laughter  be the force  which shapes  continents.
If your sadness  is a monsoon,  let your happiness  be the ocean.

It is often forgotten  that despite our  outward appearances,  the colour which stains  the insides of each of  our vessels are one  and the same.
