Today is the 2nd of October. Its celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, here in India, and I hope, in the rest of the world as well. The ‘father of our nation’ as he’s called, Mahatma Gandhi, was born on this day 146 years ago. Its a day usually involving looking back at his life, how he […]
In the map above, you can see the big green thing called “Shivaji Park”. That is a huge, open ground in Matunga, Mumbai, India. If you walk from my home, you’ll get there in about 20-25 minutes. Its been somewhere I’ve gone many, many, many times over the 17 years I’ve spent on Earth. Since […]
Today’s Writing 101 assignment is to update my readers (that’s you) over a virtual cup of coffee (replace ‘coffee‘ with ‘tea‘ if that’s what you prefer) so as to let them know what the goings-on in my life are. I think its a good way to create that personal connect with your readers, one that […]
Dear Cancer, To be honest, this is not something I thought I’d be writing today. Or for a lot of days to come. I have thought of writing something of this kind before, and even more so in the past few months and I have put it off for quite some time now, I guess […]

Secrets have a way of unraveling themselves to the world. Sometimes you may least expect it and people start sniffing on your tail. Somebody stumbles into something and joins the dots. A series of, what may seem like co-incidences, sometimes bring people to stumble into it in the first place. You’ll be left marveling at […]
Staring at the sky and the clouds. Listening to soundtracks. Watching or playing football with friends. Sweating it out during a workout and then admiring the results. Stepping on dry leaves. Watching Sherlock, Suits, House of Cards, Captain America 2, and tons of other movies and TV shows, over and over again. Playing Football Manager. […]
Today’s Blogging 101 assignment is to write a post based on the inspiration I got from one of the posts on others’ blogs on which I left a comment yesterday.
It is difficult to choose a particular post because I liked all of them very much. So, I’m going to choose two.
Yesterday’s assignment was to ‘be a good (virtual) neighbour’. Blogging is of course heavily dependent on the writing and posting part but it definitely isn’t restricted to that. A big chunk of viewership (at least in the initial stages of the blog) depends on socialising and contributing to others’ blogs. This includes liking, commenting and […]
