As I bid goodbye to this year (few hours to go), I would like to remember the year with a sense of mixed emotions. I enjoyed embracing the usual suspects of life – Instability, greasy starts, disappointments, progressive altar, some wonderful moments with family, watching my son grow another year older, seeing ourselves evolving asContinue reading “Colours of 2018”
Love isn’t your essentials today, it’s a feeling of abounds and benefits, especially with our generation. We don’t believe in classics, our roots are more inclined towards lust and insatiable components (sex is one of them). Just hold on before you judge me. I am not an anti-love person. In fact, I am a greatContinue reading “The Story of Love”
8 is a magical number. No, it’s not my favourite number by any chance of a jitter but it sure is furiously sane for Quentin Tarantino and his rustic yet brilliant and audacious script writing. 8 is just not a number from his classroom, it ushers his school of filmmaking in a way nobody elseContinue reading “8”
Another Wimbledon final, another magic on grass court. Wimbledon always takes me down the memory lane. Doesn’t matter who wins, but watching players sweating it out in this 2 week juggernaut is nothing short of a spectacle. Wimbledon has been special ever since my younger days. I remember watching each of the high voltage matchesContinue reading “Magic of W”
‘Raazi’ is one of those films that will get glued to your soul for sometime after you come out of theatres. May be, much beyond the streets, your neighbourhood and your living room. Emotions and the very bane of human existence takes a ‘U’ turn in this sizzling drama that catapults us to one ofContinue reading “Ae Watan..”
Within our polished and distinguished lives, we have a forbidden segment that society does not want to talk about. In fact, the forbidden subjects find a reclusive and repellent way of surviving in a society that’s made with rules and for people, who follow such rules. It is desirable and despised in the same breath,Continue reading “(Mis)Concept of Taboo”
Ruled. Liberated. Survived. Evolving. Such moments of torrential history, and my life.
Looking through the lens, the sun shone bright and undisputed. She smiles through the dawn, looking at my eyes with hopes to survive, relinquish and live to see the next sunrise. After all, she lives to see the ups and downs. Survival amidst desires. The sparkling waters, the residing boats, the tempered waves, the towingContinue reading “Resonance”
Chiseled in times, ravaged by war, a witness to the independence movement and surviving amidst troubled celebration. The monument stands and shines, devoid of percussion, beneath and over. Sans you, sans me. What is left of is platelets of the past and some enormous little moments.

Only a saint will consume all the adultery and exude sanity for the baffled minds”. – @msksmiles IContinue reading “A Revered Adieu”
The last couple of weeks saw Google bestowing tributes on a Russian filmmaker and a Mexican Diva. Today, I saw a Nigerian football icon grabbing this honor. Google Doodle, thank you! But I was surprised and disappointed to see that we conveniently forgot to acknowledge that today also happens to be the birthday of aContinue reading “The Curious Case of Netaji”
