Our Roots Our First Identity!!!!

Summer, this year, is mercilessly throwing the heatwaves at us never than ever before ( Do we say this every year ?).

A Journey through Jigsaw Puzzles

Long sleepless flight journeys could be tiring,  but the best part is I enjoy the undisturbed movie marathon. Sometimes random movie search leads to some really good movies that are not very popular.

Let them Rest in Peace

Penning down after many days ! Not because I didnt have anything to write but just nothing really moved me so much than today’s incident (or rather it’s aftermath).

Am I proud to be an Indian?

If some one asks me this I don’t have a single answer , my response will change based on time and context! I am sure by now there will be at-least a few patriotic, fuming Indians calling me “ traitor “ or there could already be a set of officials checking my background based on…

40- what does this mean?

MATRIXed??

Someone asked me ” Are you travelling to no- man s world for business ?!” Yes, its  definitely not a common man’s world.

Modern Civilization:Redefined

“ARE U CIVILIZED?” What does this mean when someone throws it on you? Does it mean “Are you educated? Don’t you have manners? Are you rich?” And I can keep adding questions here based on convenience.
