100 Bestseller Titles – Part 1

This is the 50th post on this blog (I know! I am being reminded of time’s capability to fly in more than one way lately!) and I really want to give you – my faithful readers – a REALLY good read (if not the laugh that I really intend!). In recent times, we have witnessed … Continue reading

#thatawesomefeeling

That awesome feeling when you name the place where you work (even if, it is only as an intern!) and people look at you with new-found respect! You know that you might not totally deserve that. You also know that it is not actually you, but the organisation you work for, that demands this respect within all … Continue reading

Is This What PMS Is All About?

It starts when you see that the caller-ID on your phone shows a picture of your little brother and the only emotion it elicits is irritation. Then there was the lady beside you, lamenting – no, weeping – about having a boyfriend who has left her more dependent and in need of care than she was before, but refuses … 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

Ataraxia

The dictionary.com defines the word as ‘a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquility’. Below that is Jean Jacques Rousseau’s sentence from A Discourse on the Origin of Inequality and a Discourse on Political Economy ~ ‘The former breathes only peace and liberty; he desires only to live and be free from labour; … Continue reading

The following is a guest post from my best friend who interns at an entertainment-related company.  The life of an intern doesn’t have to be as depressing as TV shows make it look. Working for free for a few months has its set backs, but it can lead to some wonderful experience and opportunities. I’m…

The Aam Aadmi Rhetoric

Earlier this month, the Cabinet brought out the Budget for the first year in the 11th 5 year plan. All in all I thought the Railway Budget of 2012 and the Fiscal Budget of 2012 were an improvement to the Budgets of the previous years and tried to address the real problems that affect the … Continue reading

A Resurrection

This is something that I penned down for the creative writing competition for the cultural fest at NIT Calicut this year. The organisers were kind enough to adjudge this piece as the best entry. Essentially, I had to come up with something that referred to all three items in the given photo. Hope you enjoy … Continue reading

The Weekend I Didn’t Want To Grow Out Of!

For the major part of my life I have been secretly hoping I would find some pixie dust that would help me travel to Neverland. I like to devolve all the blame to Disney’s Peter Pan book that my dad bought me around the time I was 3. If there was some place I wanted … Continue reading

All In A Month’s Work!

On the very first day of my internship, I was convinced that this would be my dream internship. There was every factor to encourage procrastination, laziness and all such vices that fall in this department. If you were to ask me the greatest accomplishments of my days as an intern it would be sipping a … Continue reading
