I Say Chaps

ISOPARB-Lohri Delight: An Unofficial Newsletter.

  I was under such a swivet about attending this Lohri-Special, power-packed, webinar Of ISOPARB West Up Chapter that my feet were literally shaking. Thank God it was a cold winter evening and my wife thought it was owing to the low temperature. Whereas, the fact of the matter was that the prospect of attending…

Generally speaking, the year 2020 was a year of betrayal. We all were betrayed by hope. The biggest complication of Covid19 is not the lack of respiration which ensues upon its befalling, rather it is the feeling of desperation which lingers upon the world due to forced confinement. A curse—not to socialise. But like the…

माशाया के मरासिम

मैं वहीं हूँ मैं जहां हूँ, या, मैं वहाँ भी नहीं हूँ मैं जहां हूँ। मैं ख़यालों में हूँ, मैं सवालों में हूँ , बदलों से ऊँची उड़ानो में हूँ , क़िस्से में हूँ, कहानियों में हूँ , चर्च के पीछे और , साड़ी की दुकानो में हूँ । तस्वीर में, मुस्कुराहट में, गीत में,…

After two hugely successful workshop days when this academic event reached its culmination on the final conference day, I was a little shilly-shally about its performance with less than the countable number of attendees in the morning.

Euphoria Infinite

I had been a fiddle-footed gadabout especially with regards to my thoughtful sojourns in social gatherings and events but this Fais-dodo of excitement was different. I had been pulled, lured, cajoled and sculpted to make my first stage appearance in the past forty years. On that cold winter evening when the mercury had stooped so…

Hungama night

“ये मेरा दिल प्यार का दीवाना …. In that adorable ambience of Sharad Poornima night when the moon was shining with its full vitality and viridity, I stood watching the mermaids dance.

Rurban Picnic

Grand Masti… Me Time-You time Bus-full of beauties in a mood ready to rock-n-roll and with a look edging to kill of course, a skimble- scamble like myself rippled out to occupy the far corner seat. But the quiet confines this cornering out had its own privileges in providing the panoramic view of the spectacle.…
