Ageing gracefully

Perhaps compare to the rest of the day, the Sun looks most beautiful in the twilight when the cloudy wrinkles enhance its aesthetic features making it glow with the trueness of its colours. Hi Shishir; Surprised? Oh! Don’t be. My voice sounds a little shaded yet so familiar. you should look at my picture, the…

Weekend Funda…Go Missing

I am not endorsing the old hedonistic theory that pursuit of pleasure and material goods is the primary goal of life but the statement that the ‘desire for happiness is the basic human trait, resonates in the realms of reality. For me this pursuit of happiness embellishes itself in my own doctrine of detoxification. One…

Kesari

A torrent of aimlessly running and fighting emojis without appropriate text being attached to them. Fifty Pathans beating head shattering drums atop a hill in an Afghani war zone are silenced by a Jatt in cheap makeup of a Sikh with Kesari turban and artificial beard…. why? ….because he starts beating his Dholak and you…

Holi ..a colourful love affair

टहलते कदम…

एक उम्र से एक मुकाम की तलाश में… जाने कब किस ओर ले कर चलते हैं मुझको ये मेरे टहलते कदम। मैं तो बस मैं हूं…घुमड़ते अब्र सा हवाओं के रुख पर टहलता हूं। एक उम्र से एक मुकाम की तलाश में… पथरीले रास्तों पर कभी खुशनुमा वादियों में कभी लहरों के वेग सा चपल…

Four Gravest Mistakes Of My India

I am no political analyst but I am compelled to write this because my nationalist self will not allow me a quieter repose otherwise. With so much talk going around in current arena about nationalism and anti-nationalism about an impactful retaliation and considering the long term repercussions of such retaliation. Well, these are political decisions…
