The Sahota Project – Part III

My next interviewee scared me a bit. And not in the good "terrible horror movie made in someone's basement" way.

The Sahota Project – Part II

For my first interview, I didn’t go too far out of my comfort zone. Really, I called my cousin. But I have a good reason, I promise.

The Sahota Project – Understanding Love

We’re all in the same boat. I like to call it the “educated, responsible adult boat”. Oh and single. We’re definitely all single. Or at least single in the eyes of family members. And we are declaring our hatred of marriage.

Taking the Big Step from Interreligious Dating to Interreligious Marriage

Before our interreligious marriage, we were just two kids interreligiously dating, which was easier. We avoided any mention of religion, aside from a few passing discussions on how far we’d each reached in our respective religious studies. When we visited each other's parents, we’d jokingly discuss cultural differences and similarities.

My Epic Parisian Summer Vacation

This summer, I need to acknowledge that I was the luckiest person I know. There were no engagements, weddings, or children born to me. There was no promotion, new job, or some fortuitous finding of lots of money.

Muslim Vday Cards: “Is It Haram To Be Drunk Off Your Love?”

Inside the community, I wasn’t good enough – I didn’t wear hijab, was too old to be marriageable, too independent to be lusted. So I wanted to break both perceptions, and destruct the narratives and perceptions that people placed on me. The cards aren’t for everyone. But I see them as a form of radical art that challenges people to think about their ideas and perceptions.
