Wishes on the go…

Its almost second nature with us, with we the believers- to mumble a prayer, a quick wish or a thank you while crossing God’s earthly residences. In India, Gods of every faith reside in almost all localities and it doesn’t hurt to make an appeal at any of their facades… Its our God after all. […]

Happy Diwali!

It seems Covid 19 has entered our system and we are doing fine with it. Politicians are contesting elections, factories are manufacturing and we are consuming!

Beauty needs no skin tone

A small storm recently brewed in the small teacup called the progressive conscience of India, over a certain brand of beauty and fairness cream… Someone filed a PIL, someone was penalised and some ads were retracted… And, things are back to normal with the soaps, lotions and potions up again with their tall claims to […]

Who advocate- him? We two won the […]

Yellow!

A bit of yellow here n an extra yellow there, the colour sure makes me happy! I instantly take a liking to those who walk around dressed in yellow! Why not do Cheerful? Whenever the mood is a bit low, a small sprinkling of yellow is all it takes to pep up! A yellow top […]

The impatient patient!

Covid brought in some strange tidings to my doorstep.Everyday, the breaking news on India Today, Republic TV, Times Now, News X , NDTV, and Mirror Now were not enough edge of the seat thriller; he would go meandering into BBC, Wion, CNN, Al-Jazeera, trying to catch India news through international eyes… One fine lockdown day, […]
