Operation Protective Edge

It is a little heartening to note that the recent Israeli-Palestinian Conflict had taken over a fair share of the media attention. However, it was still shocking to come across articles like the one on Washington Times that justified the excessive use of force by Israel in Operation Protective Edge’ in the name of ‘fighting … Continue reading

The 29th State!

That’s settled then. We will no longer have Andhra Pradesh, but Telangana and Seemandhra! Before I go on any further, let me warn you that this is not a political piece about the rightness or wrongness of the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh[1], but a truly emotional piece by a twenty-something female who grew up in … Continue reading

What the Congress Should Have Promised Its Voters!

The 2014 Elections are now a thing of the past. Still, when I look back at the last year or so, I can’t help but think of the news headlines that ran every day; about another one of the attacks that the Congress or the BJP had hurled at each other. Am I getting too … Continue reading

The Missing Hot & Spicy Sauce!

The other day I was at the KFC store in the neighbourhood and after I got my order, I enquired if I could have one of their Hot & Spicy Sauce and the sales boy looks at me like I have entered into this KFC outlet from the Neolithic Age, and informs me in a … Continue reading

My Far-Away Future Diwali

About three years ago, a friend and I walked into the newly opened, glittering ‘ion’ Mall on orchard Road. We were dejected to find that not only could we NOT afford the price-tags of the items on sale in that mall, the assistants at these shops somehow seemed to know better than to entertain customers … Continue reading

On the First Day of Her Future

So, here’s your typical girl starting at her new office today. She wakes up at 7 and thinks she’s doing a mighty fine job when she gets out at 8.03 am and walks to the songs by enya, click 5 and Outlandish. She gets to her ‘workplace’ by 8.40 and waits in the lobby for … Continue reading
