There is absolutely no denying the fact that we are all extensively addicted to our mobile phones. I am one of those people who would like to frown upon kids for being so dependent on a device but when you yourself are that person, you cannot exactly...

What does it take to be a writer? I have often been asked more often than I would like if writing feels like hard work or am I just sitting in a café, day dreaming gloriously and the words pour out just as deftly as the tea pours from pot to cup. Thi...

Have you met a fictional character so dear, that they had your heart, they moved you to tears and from the beginning you had a bias towards them; you rooted for them and you cried for them?

I have fallen in love with fictional characters more times th...

Stand-up comedy might be the trend today but it has long lived in Maharashtra with alternate names such as “kathaa-kathan” and “one-man stand-up talk show”. Pu. La.Deshpande, Da. Ma. Mirazdaar, Shankar Patil could send people reeling to stitches then...

Lorelai: “OK, you’ve been in this mood for a week now and while I love the unexpected ups and downs of motherhood, I’ve got to say I’m tired of Goofus and I’d like my Gallant back.”

Rory: “You can’t just say a normal sentence, right? Just ‘Hey, let’s...

BEAUTIFUL. I have always wondered at this word. You will find many synonyms to this but they don’t really sound synonymous, pretty, cute, charming, alluring, hot et all; nothing really seems to replicate the texture and the flavour that the word “bea...

Theatre, cinema, literature, aren't the indulgences of people who have full stomachs. They are the staple diet of an Indian middle class mind and soul. A hungry stomach replenished by a performance. At least that's how I have always seen it. And beca...

I have always felt that theatre can do things to you that cinema fails to achieve. Like stirring the stagnant methodical heartbeat and causing it to race as you witness regular people perform right in front of you, changing their stance every minute,...

How does one explain the beauty of Wodehouse’s novel to someone? I don’t think you truly can, ever. Wodehouse is more of a feeling, a state of mind than a mystery being solved or a plot that uncovers to send chills down your spine or even a heart bre...

I have always felt that who you choose to travel with decides how your journey and the trip would unravel. Taking a bit of home with you when you pick your most favourite person or people in the world, to go for a vacation with and then roaming aroun...

There are some words that just fit the feeling or the place like it was curated keeping in mind every single element, every emotion and opinion. They sound beautiful and they make the sentence you utter significantly better, more substantial and some...

What started off on a quiet Sunday morning with the report of a death of a stupendous movie star slowly turned into a fanatical, over the top discussion on how the actor died, what she must have consumed to trigger the fall and a host of other conspi...

I have a list of things that I need to get done; they are a crazy assortment of knick knacks.

A much gloried to-do list sits on the white board hung on the
opposite wall of my bed so that I wake up to a motivational quote that I sought for myself

and a...

If you haven’t watched the office already, maybe this post might lead you to a binge fest which could easily take up a fortnight, and that’s if you don’t have a job. Totally worth it, though. I do have a job, but I couldn’t stop myself from staying u...
