Why Indians Need Real Idols, not pretentious ones The pretentiousness and shallowness of many Indians can be really overwhelming. sultan may have been a great movie, but I won’t know because I won’t be watching it. Not in theatres, or on TV subsequently, for obvious reasons. It’s not the movie I’m against, but the encouragement of wrong. But should that […]

Brick & mortar won’t be dead by 2023

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Brick & mortar won’t be dead by 2023 Extreme comments or views are often a huge hit or miss. And Niti Aayog’s Mr. Kant’s futuristic sounding comment about how brick and mortar businesses in India will be dead by 2023 was a huge miss, in fact to the point of sounding immature. Coming from a school or college student in […]

A Rural Electric Ride

A Rural Electric Ride While a lot of us are busy in our world of self-indulgence, it’s reassuring to know there are Indians like Ratan Tata, who’d go the distance with regard to businesses that positively impact to one or more segments of the population. I’m speaking about the Nano in particular here, the world’s cheapest car that was inspired by […]

A Love Song for India

Reading Time: 1 minute

A Love Song for India I tried thinking of a love song for India, and couldn’t find one more appropriate than this. ABBA‘s ‘Lay all your love on me’. These four lines seem to be a perfect message from our country, to us citizens. “Don’t go wasting your emotion Lay all your love on me Don’t go sharing your devotion Lay all your […]

Ghost Rider

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Ghost Rider India has seen a meteoric rise in the number of vehicles on its roads. And with it, driving sense and etiquette have disappeared into oblivion. I’ll agree I’m not too great a driver myself. But few things anger me as much as bikers riding on the wrong side of the road. And it’s still ok if a rider only risks his own life. But many of […]

Holy How?!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Holy How?! Does god exist? I personally do believe in faith, and in a higher power, but one without a name or face. Culture and upbringing however, do tend to influence that faith with names and appearances.  Unlike popular belief, India does not have 330 million gods. But of the comparatively fewer we do, festivals are celebrated in the grandest ways imaginable. The next few months marks some major […]

The Future Indian PM

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Future Indian PM Technology played a crucial role in winning Barack Obama his first, and securing his second term as US President. With that, I think it was evident that a capable leader and change maker must have the power of new age technology and media on his or her side, to connect with the constantly changing and eternally curious new-age citizen. […]

Attention! Is this the Police?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Attention! Is this the Police? Last evening I went to pick up some things for home from the department store. Visits to that store isn’t exactly something I look forward to. Considering the place is a little dusty, and the staff is slow and clueless. And for some inexplicable reason, they keep shifting some sections around every other time. Anyway, while parking outside, I […]

Two Sides of The Same…Country

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Two Sides of The Same…Country Little over a decade ago, I had just learnt how to drive a car, and, sorry; I must learn to be specific. I had learnt to drive a car in India. Yes, here, it takes more effort, selfless commitment, definitely more skill, and sheer bravery to even just want to learn to drive a vehicle here, let alone […]

Where Men became Gods

Reading Time: 2 minutes

People who were hapless witnesses to nature’s frenzy in Uttarakhand… Stood helplessly, and believed this was the end of the road for them… Where hope seemed to crumble with the relentless gushing rage… Even the God of Destruction himself stood helplessly surrounded… And then, from the skies… A marginalized and often forgotten God emerged, and rushed selflessly in… And stood […]
