Nestlé Kit Kat Chunky Review


Cut me and I’ll bleed chocolate. I am an outright chocolate fan and a self-proclaimed expert with an exquisite taste. No matter how broke I am, I cannot desist from trying out new chocolates. This happens so frequently, that at times I end up only having chocolates for dinner. This time around, returning from work…

The Missing Chapters From The Book Of Life.


It is winter now. I feel quiet and vivid. The talk I hear seems to be the talk of long ago. Peace. Struggle. And everybody waiting. Is it all only another illusion, a dream from which we never wake? It has been years since those days. There is still something burned out in me from those days. Yes,…

The need to bring politics, business, and science together (pun)


There is an urgent need to bring politics, business, and science together in the times of de-globalisation. One wonders if we might ever appoint a businessman as our top diplomat. Imagine Mukesh Ambani Sharad Pawar (India’s richest man), running India’s diplomatic business and sitting in the cabinet committee. Quite unlikely! The bonafide and powerful argument is…

Media and the Habit of Creating Breaking News Out of a Wrong Story


Nationally and internationally we have seen a rising debate on the issue of nationalism versus free speech. Varying from news channels to newspapers- CNN (IBN) “the fanatic” to the Times Republic- “Nation wants to know”- the stories sound familiar. The headlines are the same, the language identical, and the narrative interchangeable. The news channels in…

The Trapped Che Guevara


It has been 50 years since the death of Che Guevara. Yet, his dying legacy lies trapped between the coming of age travelogue and t-shirt logos. In the hind-set, he seems no different than the posters of Bob Marley, with smokers seemingly unaware of the difference between the two. But, who was Che Guevara? Before he…

What Are Expectations? What Do Expectations Mean?


‘Expectation’ in general stands for a belief of happening or awaiting of something inter alia a belief of something that is bound to happen in future. Its understanding varies from people to people. Some consider it a curse, while others believe it to be a blessing in disguise. I personally believe it to be an excuse. Blaming others (or a…

The Idea Of God


God is neither male nor female and can easily be called mother as father. Although we are still very much involved in patriarchal structures, we are swiftly moving into an era where the masculine and feminine, the patriarchal and the matriarchal, will come together in harmony. The god is an irresistible might which is always…

Finish What You Started – by Jeyran Main


“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.” David Allen There are many things in our lives that we wish to change. That may be getting rid of bad habits or implementing new good ones. We set goals, promise ourselves,…

What India really needs: cow protection or protection of human rights?


I have been stunned by the alarming development in India’s political fiasco i.e. the rising vigilantism under the shed of cow protection inter alia the rise of gau rakshaks (“cow protectors”). But do we really need cow protectors? If yes, then what should cow protectors be protecting? If their pseudo-moral responsibility is limited to the…

A piece of mind (Shout Out)


You have ever had this everlasting feeling of being stuck between a devil and a deep sea. A series of incidents and circumstances where you feel damned if you do and damned if you don’t. A sense of being lost or being driven to a whirlwind ride destined to a place full of responsibilities you didn’t know existed….

The Rainmaker (Sketch)


People and relationships. Dependency. Addiction. Causes and concerns. Innate doubts’ breeding fears. Day in, day out. Ten to nine, nine to ten. Wasting our precious time and life. Hoping miracle. Impromptu praying for angelic intervention. But why?
