Money for Nothing, Terror for Free

Posted on October 6, 2016 in Miscellaneous

Should those who make their money on the courtesies of a billion people be turned away because they refuse to balm the wounds on the hand that feeds them?

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.

Posted on September 15, 2016 in Miscellaneous

Ever wondered why there’s not much excitement on our Rio paralympics gold medal winners (or for that matter even the silver and bronze winners)? Or was there, and I missed it?

Oh, Priya!

Posted on February 3, 2016 in Miscellaneous

‘Do you remember my school friend I was telling you about? She is coming tomorrow,’ my wife beamed as I entered the house. ‘Really!’ I exclaimed, disinterested and unable to recall. Back from office on a Friday evening, I had other things to think of. ‘Come let me show you her photo.’ She said, waiting […]

The Fish Bowl

Posted on in Miscellaneous

The ominous sound of crash had me rushing out of my room that Sunday afternoon. The console table that was once adorned with a collection of beautiful glass vases lay barren. My septuagenarian father stood in speechless misery staring at the floor that was now ornamental with a profusion of brightly coloured glass pieces near […]
