Thought for food

Just one thought perhaps…? Today, its about these stylish food shows on TV. Especially the ones with chefs from the European, American and Australian shows! Just finished watching Season 12 of MasterChef Australia. These cook offs and exclusive shows by Michelin starred chefs are a big draw for my kind of people, who love feeding […]

No conflict…

Times are tough and tricky. There is more dislike fuelled by conflict of ideas than pathology. Pathology of dislike? Like having a strong, uncontrollable blanket hate/ dislike or antipathy towards a certain people or person coloured by years of grounding or feeding of bytes of hate. We do wonder why Israel and Palestine can’t settle […]

Dear Prime Minister

“I have failed”…said a doctor when he could not save his dear brother as Covid continues marauding and ravaging lives in my country… Lofty talks of oxygen plants being set up, oxygen trains shuttling between states and provinces, world coming with medical aid to our doorstep while we continue with the ugly dance of democracy […]

I send prayers…

This fortnight has been emotionally testing for most of us in my country as the second wave of the Covid Pandemic has decided to ravage and roar… Someone or the other from amongst us, or connected to us in some way has been afflicted. We hear stories of hapless family members running pillar to post […]

This and that

No end to woes, it seems Covid likes reruns…race for cure began, vaccine came, but new strains came in stronger. Hope we Indians can resist this virus as well. However, I traveled and traversed my country, from the extreme South to the East in all PPE and social distancing that an economy class ticket of […]

Just a l❤️vely song…

For those who still don’t consider Valentine’s Day as Blah 😀… For all hearts which beat in the name of love… For the young ones who observe a festival for a week every February, where love for the other is professed with promises, chocolates, gifts, cards, teddy bears, etc. and the countless ageless lovers of […]

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! Doomsday fears have once again receded to the background. India has just managed to recover part of its fiscal deficit and US has the top two leaders of its […]

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 […]

Moral fabric and us

The current crisis faced by my beloved country is of moral turpitude, if we look outwards, as we usually do; expostulating from our living room sofas at the deterioration outside. No, it’s not the Hathras killing that provokes me to post this.Its also not the Sushant Singh Rajput death conspiracy or the reports of drugs […]
