Cops ‘N Robbers

It was while I was somewhere between the grocery and junk food section in the supermarket, musing over random imponderables, when it came to my attention that despite being the most influential blogger within a radius of 10-20 meters, I’ve never raised a finger for improving the legal framework of...

Plane in the neck

Ever since mythical aviation enthusiast Icarus glued on feathers and jumped off a cliff, man has been trying to answer the quintessential question of ages – Is man meant to fly? And if he is, who should keep track of the frequent flyer miles? It has been one of the most...

Mangle all the way…

Hardly seems like enough time has passed for you to sing ‘tra la la la laaaa, la la-la-la‘, but Christmas, in all its glory, is here once again. And before you actually read this entry completely, it’s probably wise for me to wish you in advance, ‘cos I know you’re...

2012: A space for the ditzy

End of the world predictions have been around ever since the the world had lunatics… and that’s basically since the beginning of time. As predictions go, Earth has been subjected to the R.I.P. monitor on a periodic swing… The predicted cause of complete human doom has been postulated across meteor...

Nobel Peace SurPrize

Now, it has been a while since I have updated my blog, and gosh darn it if I’m as uncreative as to blame it on the same old excuse of hectic work schedule, but when your clients and the powers that be toss you across the room and bounce you...

I kid, I kid…

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. They scare the bejeesus out of me. They really do. I wouldn’t say I am otherwise the bravest guy on this side of the planet, but I’m not that much of a coward either; and yet, I’m scared shitless of these...

The Root of All Onams

Finally. It’s here. The topical season to be jolly. I love this time of year. Within the state of Kerala, this is one time when people set aside differences of caste, creed, status, power, politics, wealth, community, gender, and age to unite in a common, though short-lived goal of peace,...

Gay Ho!

The first week of July, 2009, has had special significance to Indians. While many people possibly in weird body paint danced in joy, hugging on the streets; others yet marked it as black day for Indian society, solemnly grieving the ‘decline’ of India as a country. Personally, I thought those...

ABC and the three R’s

Education is neither a measure nor an indication of common sense. Thus spake my dad. And any time you started doubting the statement, wondering “Hey, that just can’t be true“, he’d just point out a real life example; an educated idiot. Human life hasn’t evolved enough for dad to run...

Tow be or not tow be

I confess; I am not best known for my up-to-date knowledge on the happenings around the world. My closest of friends would hesitate in using ‘well-informed’ as an adjective for me. But I am not completely out of tune either. In between my naps and during movie breaks, wandering chitchat...
