The other Rahul

One of my all time favourite sports hero has announced his retirement ! After Kapil Dev, who was my first idol, it was Rahul Dravid that I considered a true hero. He remains a contemporary of the more famous legend, Sachin Tendulkar, but his statistics are nothing short […]

That’s loud

That’s a really loud snore !!! And in a plane full of people, it sounds even more loud as most of us are partially awake. Does he have a family and does his wife snore too or is just unable to sleep with his loud snores ? I […]

Election lessons

I am thinking of Rahul Gandhi today …. He cost the elections in UP for the Congress party. What must he be thinking ? Is he thinking about what he didn’t do right or what he could have done differently or is he just blaming his poor luck […]

Not to miss this class

Just finished watching a painfully inane movie by one of the greatest directors of all time – K Balachander. The movie is titled “Velli Vizha” …. It really didn’t feel like it was directed by K Balachander. This is the same man who has directed some of the […]

We – the number crunchers

No single city dweller should doubt their number crunching abilities …. We measure everything. Just watch – a baby is born, baby is weighed, exact time is noted, every birthday is celebrated, one more expensive than the other ! School time means more calculations – number of suitable […]
