Miss Geller and Miss Green are in a mood to end this year with a warm wrap of a flashback to all GBMs who attended ‘Twisted Pages’ – an Editorial initiative based on a Blind Book Date. Our fellow GBMs who showed up for this extraordinary event creatively flaunted their talent. What they exactly did, is something you all want to know!
Found something close to resembling love at last,
Just when the dusk settled, barges in my past
Love turned into hate,
My asset turned into my liability
Just as she left, so did my loving ability
Threw me away like garbage cause I had a poor dad
Now I have what her so-called ‘Rich’ dad never had.~ Rtr. Kabir Agarwal, Rtr. Jayesh Wadwani, Rtr. Mariam Memon
I called my gift a curse
Was when it all started,
Being called a monster
Was when it all started
My touch was called lethal
Was when it all started
Realizing I was their weapons
That was when I wanted to stop all.
Soon after that, I realized
No one’s curse
Just that I was more than a human,
It was their jealousy,
and they made me feel my touch was lethal;
but it was my identity.
No more, I am a weapon of theirs;
but now they’ll need a defense to fight back against me.~ Rtr. Manthan Kshatriya

Robert saw it the moment he opened his eyes. It would be obvious; to anyone who slept in the bed. It was out of his reach. Wobbling, almost falling, he finally managed to trap it, but even Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci guarded a breathtaking and historical secret.
They all went together to watch Alex Rider’s performance. The moment they laid eyes on Alex Rider, most of the teenagers but; they felt like they were invincible – not the idea of being invincible superman. The kind of invincible that tricks you into thinking tomorrow might be a better day to start chasing your dreams or an advantage where you have an extra ten minutes to get somewhere when you don’t. And while there’s a lot that doesn’t know at my age, what I do know is this: “What some feel take for granted, others are fighting for, and believe me, I’m a fighter!”.
