The summer of 2015 brought up casual debates and discussions amongst us, the co-founders of Nathi Nonsense, and these chit-chat sessions led to the beginning of Nathi Nonsense. We have always liked stating our opinions but, being just 16 year old then, our voices were confined to the school classrooms for a good impression and decent marks and those opinions meant nothing more. Even though we were still ‘kids’ and inexperienced, our beliefs and intentions were surely much higher than what the society thought. We believed that whatever we did, whatever we said was not nonsensical or; as ‘Nathi’ means ‘Not’ in Gujarati, it was surely NATHI-NONSENSE. This is when the journey of Nathi Nonsense started and we started by expressing ourselves while people listened to us; new dreams and identities were built slowly and steadily and we grew as individuals. Meghna, one of the founding members of Nathi Nonsense, is not a part of this venture anymore but her contribution is still valuable.
Nathi Nonsense is not just a blog. As a blog we talk about varied things like our experiences, the lessons we learn, art and different beautiful cultures, stories, our opinions on our ‘civilization’; but, apart from our online blog, we believe that Nathi Nonsense can be anything and everything. We often experience a lack of definition when it comes to Nathi Nonsense but it being boundless merely indicated that we absolutely dislike barriers that surround us. We organize events ranging from open mics, which we call Mukammal, to debates on social issues (click here to know more about them). We believe in exploring everything and providing others with an opportunity to explore too. We have also had a radio show which talked about issues pertaining to the youth and giving them an opportunity to express themselves at Ahmedabad’s first community radio station, Radio Nazariya 107.8.
The two of us share the same name and a desire to make a difference in the society. We bring to you our experiences and our vivid perspectives using Nathi Nonsense as our medium.
