People that Krishnan and I look upto !!!

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 […]


Remembering CEC Seshan

Happy National Voters’ Day. Today, I was remembering the man who reminded the entire nation that we have a Election Commission of India with a Chief Election Commissioner …. Mr. T. N. Seshan. A maverick who changed the Indian Election scene forever. Some people are truly rare and […]



Someone must research to find out if icons and idols develop clay feet sooner in this day and age or is it just the age old adage that all idols have feet of clay. Mr. Barack Obama the former President of USA visited India recently in connection with […]


Mr.Spineless Sardesai, Greatness inspires Greatness

He quit school at the young age of 15 because his hero asked him to…. He was jailed because he indulged in anti-government picketing and demonstrations and then let off when they realised he was a minor …. he was again imprisoned for 2.5 years without curtains of […]


Hay made her own Sunshine !

I first read her tiny book “You can heal your body” in 2004 and then the book which has become a bedside companion ever since – “You can heal your life”. From being raped when she was a young girl, to overcoming cancer without any medicines and living […]


The bald, witty, democratic “Tughlaq” no more!

His mentee Jayalalitha passed away yesterday and even before people could pour Earth over her coffin and the Earth settled, her mentor too passed away! I knew about Cho always because my dad was a huge fan. The only magazine that he would buy was “Tughlaq”. Dad accepted […]


Sing-In-Peace Dr. BalaMurali Krishna…

This loss is personal in a very unique way… The carnatic music legend Dr. Balamurali Krishna passed away today. It is because of this maverick that I got my unique name. Most people know me as Bindu, but my full name is Bindumalini…. the name of a raaga […]



I haven’t watched “Kabali” and probably won’t till it comes on TV. But nothing will change how I feel about Rajnikanth.. for me he was and remains the enduring Superstar. He is probably one of the few stars who deserves the star status – he doesn’t go around […]


Skewed priorities ! 

This note came to me over Whatsapp. …. Do read it.  ******************* Forwarded by Gen Vinod Saighal I have a course mate from the Army days who gave me some surprising news. In his younger days he had played cricket for the Services at the Ranji Trophy level. […]


Shiva as a boss …

Today is Maha Shivaratri – a very auspicious day. I am no expert on the spiritual aspects of this day, but Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has written about The Significance of Mahashivaratri. I thought of evaluating Shiva as a boss in our limited corporate world. All the Hindu mythology […]
