A rick in time… is quite unheard of

The meek may inherit the earth, but the roads shall still belong to the auto driver. For those of you who are fortunate enough to not know what it is, an auto, a.k.a. an autorickshaw, or more lovably, a ‘rick’, is a three-wheeled taxi you find all around India, unless...

Strung Up In Strings: My Guitar’s Day Out

I have always been entwined in the fabric of music. It has been such an immense part of my life that I won’t be totally wrong in saying I was raised by it. As a matter of fact, some of the earliest memories I have is that of my father...
