Hello all!

Welcome to Punjabi Tea and Chocolate Cake.

My name is Ciona.
I am a writer, artist, erotic content creator,
and sole owner of this site.

I am a third-generation British Indian, of Panjabi descent:
the eldest (on my mother’s side) and only (on my father’s side)
granddaughter and grandchild of
Indian and Pakistani-born immigrants.
All four of my grandparents came to England
as British citizens, from India (mother’s side),
and India via Kenya (father’s side).
I am British, English, and Birmingham-born and bred;
my parents were also born here.

Identity is complex and involved.
It is a subject that recurs in my work, in one form or other,
and I like to explore its realms and varied manifestations
within society and within myself.
I am proud of where I come from and of the elements,
both harmonies and conflicts, that comprise me.
I write what I feel-
often, this is conveyed through lightness,
words related to darker emotions,
or a concoction of both.
Life is full of vastness, complexity, and nuance,
and I like to honour all of its gravity and levity.

I create using a variety of expressions,
to mirror the shades of life
and diverse means for communicating
the experience of living:
here, you will find poetry, prose poetry,
photographs, music, videos,
articles and essays covering an array of interests,
and personal thoughts about the world in which we live.
I love dance, music, handicrafts
(watercolour painting, collage, making jewellery, weaving),
creating digital graphics, and working with other artists
on projects which employ a variety of media
and modes of sensory communication.

Stay, take a look around.

If you would like to chat,

Thanks for stopping by,

Ciona x.
