Should those who live on the kindness and admiration of those very billion be spurned because they are seen as refusing to demonstrate even a semblance […]


A War In The Making?

Posted on September 20, 2016 in Miscellaneous

‘Those Behind Uri Terror Attack Won’t go Unpunished, Says PM Modi.’ This hackneyed and stale roar is past its sell-by date. These tiring clichés have stopped impressing us long time back.

Back from office on a Friday evening I had other things to think of. ‘Come let me show you her photo.’ She said, waiting […]
