I have been living in Doha for a better part of a month now. One thing I noticed is, there are a lot of Indians here. Especially people from Kerala.

First thing I noticed when i entered Doha, was … Continue reading Life…and tips

I am a foodie, so I like to visit plenty of eating places. During the sorties, I observed a few things which might differentiate pricey fancy restaurants from cheap budget restaurants. Fancy : If you have to stay in a queue and have to be quiet, it is bound to be a fancy place. Budget :You can be in a queue and shout to your … Continue reading Poor Restaurant, Rich Restaurant
Why is the world obsessed with Gender Equality? We, the Indians, are past such petty issues. We believe in caste inequality. That is much better and easier. All you have to do, is claim that you are from a reserved caste and you can easily get an admission in a good college or get a high paying government job, irrespective of your ability to perform … Continue reading Gender Equality ….
People always ask how fast my interest transfer speed is. I need to answer this once and for all.

Everyone gets jitters when they are getting married. Especially in arranged marriages when traditionally, the bride and groom hardly see each other, although times are changing. I was day dreaming about marriage ,the other day, when a thought struck me. Believe me, it is like getting hit with a frying pan on your head. The thoughts, i meant. Not the marriage. Domestic violence is usually … Continue reading Marriage Jitters and poundings

I have a cousin who is of the age when he plays cricket at any conceivable spot of open ground. This includes main roads, (stopping cars is a very important function in this case) , 10ft x 12ft balconies (increases the patience level, it is said), open grounds ( which are notoriously close to glass buildings) and cemeteries. Now, I gave a lot of though … Continue reading Death spot of cricket
Winking at corruption is not Government policy… That is completely unthinkable. It is just government practice. When I say such things, people call me a cynic , among other things. For such people : A cynic is what an idealist calls a realist. Continue reading Bribery…

I was in a shopping center recently. Yes, I am in a habit of spending exorbitant amount of money on clothes. But that’s not the point. There was a guy standing in the middle of the passage. Ignoring the social norm of ignorance, i.e minding my own business, I asked him why he was standing right in the middle. “I am waiting for someone “, … Continue reading The wait….
Recently, I wrote an article on depression. The stages of depression, how to spot if your friend is depressed, etc. The usual stuff. But it got me thinking. After a loft of running by the metaphorical guinea pig in his running wheel , in my brain, I came up with an idea, a thought. The most depressed being on the earth must be toddlers . … Continue reading Toddler studies

I love poetry. It gives a poet, an opportunity to break these grammar and logical rules. For instance, it helps a poet say that he could count ten thousand flowers in a single glance. Such skill, such wonder, and yet he manages to say that a 1000 sq feet of farming land may be used to grow a hell lot of flowers. Oh, I so … Continue reading The lucky poets
I just realised that comic books teach a lot of things to young impressionable minds. for instance, It teaches us that anyone can be invisible. All you have to be is … be badly dressed, establish yourself as a “villager” or ” gavthi”, be shy and most importantly, be ugly. Viola, you have the power to be invisible. Although this may lead you to be … Continue reading What , the comics teach us.
Creationists say that evolution is untrue. Evolution says that we evolved from monkeys or apes. Monkeys throw feces (shit ) at each other when they have an argument. Don’t the humans throw shit as well? Ask any politician. He just might throw one at you. Continue reading Evolution
A politician made a comment about BJP government’s policy towards farmers recently. I completely agree with the comment. It is absurd to pay the farmers, four times the cost of the land , if they sell it for any project. The ideal way is to ask your brother in law to grab it at no cost at all.Hugh money saving tactic. This is how economy … Continue reading Indian Politics
I was going home from work yesterday. TGIF in my mind, going over the infinite possible things not to do on the weekend while trying not to bump into any other vehicle. Now, I try to follow the traffic rules, which I know, is unorthodox for a person living in Pune. (the city is full of notoriously traffic signal flouting maniacs). So during one such … Continue reading We Dont need no, education
