A journey left midway …

Today morning KTV was showing the movie “Johnny”. Its a Tamil movie made in 1980 starring Rajinikanth in a double act and Sridevi, as the actress. The storyline is interesting and simple – Sridevi is a popular singer, and Johnny (Rajinikanth) is her ardent fan. Rajinikanth as Johnny is a […]


The Soldier and The Politician

Today while browsing FB, I saw this post from my friend Neeti. Its a letter from Malvika Lamba, an army wife and it brings out the stark difference between the world of a soldier and that of a politician. It reminded me of something that happened earlier. A […]


The waxing and waning of media indignation

Over the last week or so, every private media channel has been shouting hoarse about the Padmavati controversy. For those who have missed out on all the fun, here’s a synopsis – the famed director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has made a movie called “Padmavati” based on Rani Padmini […]


Sickened to the stomach ….

I struggled with the title of this blog because am angry, numb and sick, all at the same time. For the past few days every time the Ryan school murder case comes up, I am shocked at the casualness of the whole incident.  A little boy goes to […]


Hello Smog :(

This is the view right now (around10.15 am) from our 12th floor home –  And it’s getting worse :(. The air was thick when Mom, Krishnan and I went for a walk around 7.30 am. There are no crackers being burst, and no Diwali around the corner but […]


And the count goes to 75+

Yesterday 26 people were shot dead as they prayed at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Just 33 days back 50+ people were killed in the Las Vegas shooting. Its unbelievable that nothing seems to pressurize the US policy makers to bring Gun Control. I just read an […]


Released but still in jail … #WhoKilledAarushi

Every time Krishnan and I see Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, parents of Aarushi, on TV or in a newspaper, we become very emotional. We don’t know them. We didn’t know Aarushi. We certainly don’t know if they are guilty or not guilty of murdering their only child on […]


50+ dead… for no rhyme or reason

At first the news said 2 people dead in the Las Vegas shooting…. till I saw the news just now. 50+ people died without any reason, just because no politician wants to bring gun control. I am far away in India, but the news has made me really […]


Dear Hindustan Unilever…

The first thing I want to say is I am a huge admirer of HUL. It’s not a CEO factory for nothing. It’s people practices are far superior to many global HR organisations. We Indians have grown up using HLL products and call it by any name, HLL […]


Life Review – Our Moon Has Blood Clots

This is the only book that has made me cry within the first five pages. “I remembered our kitchen garden back home in Srinagar, and all the tomatoes I had wasted, plucking them before they could ripen and hitting them for sixes with my willow bat. And now […]
