Blank pages, have you ever looked at them carefully? What do they make you feel? For some a blank page is like a disappointing void and for some, the opportunity to build whatever they want. It is all about perspective at the end of the day. We all look at the same things differently according to our life experiences and learning in life. I was recently at a place that was quiet, beautiful, and free of clutter but suddenly everything changed. Suddenly, the place was buzzing with commotion.

The new Year has begun! Its time for new promises, new resolutions and everything New! We all partied hard, had a blast, got drunk, splurged on things like anything and slept in a friend’s house who is not really a friend. He is a friend’s friend or even worse, you can’t even remember who that kind soul was who let you stay at his place last night because you were too drunk to drive. That is how we always spend the New Year’s Eve but things need to change, perhaps not everything but certain
Are we making a big cultural shift or an unabashed imitation of everything that shines is digging a grave for what we proudly call our's? The process of change has indeed begun and it has begun with a bang. The kind of changes, I have noticed personally are mind-boggling. India is seen as one nation that holds insane scope for multinational vultures to come and set up their businesses here and reap the great benefits at the same time. The humongous
The news about beautiful Anushka Sharma getting married to hot cricket hunk Virat Kohli has hit the headlines like anything. They were not very open about their relationship for a long period of time but then one Tweet from Virat made it all clear. Relationship gurus, people close to the couple and even their fans were sure that this couple will definitely tie the knot and so it happened. The beautiful couple got married last week and what a fairy tale kind of a wedding it seems to be
Welcome to 2018. You have already heard a lot about the new technology, new inventions and new inceptions that are going to debut your life to revolutionize the way you live. Have you been introduced to the social changes that will be brought to reinvent the life we have? I reckon the answer to my question is no and there is a strong reason for that. You have not had an introduction to any social changes because there will be none. You must be thinking, who needs a change anyway.
Today marks the one year anniversary of probably the biggest event that took place in our history. One man with power, stood at a podium in the evening, telling a nation of over a billion citizens that the money that they possess will mean nothing after the clock strikes 12. He decided our fate, alone – assuming he had the right to do so. Boorish! This blog post is not to admire his guts or to criticize his audacity. It is just a recount of what we all faced after his
According to the Child Marriage Act – the acceptable age for marriage for a girl is 18 and 21 for a boy. But a man is allowed to have sex with his underage wife (whether she agrees to sex or not) under Pocso (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences). According to the law of country, IPC section 375 states, sex with a girl below the age of 18 is rape but if she is married and you have sex with her (consensual or non-consensual) it is not rape? What kind of a twisted society is
Where are we heading? We live in a world that is unsafe, unpredictable and also despicable to a great extent. But this isn’t how we started. When did we become the demons in the skin of humans? There was a time when people loved one another. We could die to protect a stranger, we would go to any extent to keep a promise we made and we would do anything but disrespect another soul. But such is the time now that we can’t care enough for people we are related to. When did
The corporate world is infamous for being callous, cut-throat and cruel. We are all very competitive when it comes to having things that we desire and people do not blink an eye before crossing any limits when it comes to work. People can kill to step up the ladder of success. They plot, they conspire and they connive; they stoop to a level that can leave anyone red-faced. But this corporate world is made of two types of people. Those who fall in type A are the ones who conspire,
Have you had those weird stares while you were walking on the street wearing a tube top? Have you heard your neighbor telling your mother how she should control you? Have you heard your father telling your brother that he shouldn’t be out late because ‘Sharma ji’ living next door keeps close tabs on everything you do? These questions are not even half as daunting as some other that you must have been asked. Like did I just see you getting out of a boy’s house? Do you not
