Trippin’

History repeats itself. And around here, we create our own history. For people who are not used to how my parental household works, I’d be shirking my duties as an author if I don’t outline the rituals at home. For my part, my own personal routine is simple in it’s...

Mession Impossible

For a long time, I was living under the delusion that I was , if not a neatness freak, at least intolerant of living in dumpsters. But looking at the mess I leave behind in every room I could lay my hands on, I have to face the ugly truth…...

This is a job for … Supermad

Everybody wants to be a superhero. I’m sure that from time to time, even you have woken up, rubbed your eyes, yawned, and felt that insane urge to don a cape, shout out an eager catchphrase at the top of your lungs, and jump out the nearest window, determined to...

Travel Guide – Episode 3 – Hamish Snores in Uttaranchal

Too long has the Hamish pen been sleeping. And much to the surprise of critics the world over, some people actually noticed! Time had been a severe constraint in this regard. By and large, it has been work which has been eating it away. But when the office itself decides...

Hamish Joy’s Travel Guide: Episode 1

The best minds in the world wouldn’t describe Hamish Joy as a travel consultant. And that’s not entirely because they’ve never heard of me, though that’s probably a big factor. The more compelling reason is that I have never travelled much. With the exception of one family trip to the...
