The Auteur – Remembering you..

Your films were not just films, they were emotions transcending borders and cultures. A master in portraying human relationships and political drama, you were adept in bringing the best out of stars and actors to deliver the content in a way that could live and breathe for generations to come. One of the finest storyContinue reading “The Auteur – Remembering you..”

Rishi Kapoor – The ‘Charm’ is no more

No, please don’t take me for a blogger who only pens down Obituaries. In fact, I hate them because I hate saying goodbye, I don’t believe in goodbyes. But apparently, these are tough times and every morning, I get this bad feeling that we are going to lose people – people who are admired, peopleContinue reading “Rishi Kapoor – The ‘Charm’ is no more”

Irrfan Khan – An Actor of Substance

‘When death strikes, it’s not about the darkness. It’s about those indelible marks that are left behind’. I really believed that he will fight this out and come back to do what he does best, acting. But somewhere, it was written otherwise. It’s a tragic loss to the world of Cinema, and we have lostContinue reading “Irrfan Khan – An Actor of Substance”

2019: Introspection, Tears and Future

‘A picture is worth a thousand words’. And, words encapsulate life. It’s 31 Dec 2019, and my usual ritual of a customary recap of the previous year is now like a Netflix series – a recurring, never ending one, that is. 2019 will go down as one of the most enterprising ones in my life.Continue reading “2019: Introspection, Tears and Future”

Prevailing Disasters

If we meet someone for the first time and we end up asking, ‘What’s your name’, it’s a sensible question to ask. But what follows next, is a recipe for disaster and that’s exactly how our society is built. What we hear is what we percieve. Apocalypse is not a situation for the future, itContinue reading “Prevailing Disasters”

Curious Case of History

Stonehenge has remained a mystery and an enigmatic destination for years and centuries now. But it does invoke resonance and awe in the same breath. Toppled rocks over a precarious design in different sizes placed over a tepid piece of earth – such torrid piece of landmark inviting such crazy anecdotes could only have oneContinue reading “Curious Case of History”

Sea of Water

The coastal path of Wales is one of those places that doesn’t leave you even after you have left Wales, for a very long time. We put our tents in Cardiff but it was the blue waters that stayed with us through our uninhibited and refreshing stay in the beautiful land of cliffs, wet landscapesContinue reading “Sea of Water”

A dialogue with God

I ain’t a saint, I understand Karma but am equally susceptible to worldly pleasures and I am not ashamed to admit that I am normally sane and quite easily, overtly ambitious by average human standards. I lost someone very close to my heart earlier this week. He was a more than a friend, a brotherContinue reading “A dialogue with God”

Dost, this was not the plan..

Mamu, yes we did have a lot in our agenda and for our future but this was certainly not recorded in our books. And, as I am left weeping at losing you, I cannot accept the fact that life’s gorgeously fleeting nature has robbed me of a great friend and an amazing human being. IContinue reading “Dost, this was not the plan..”

Stunner of a Sunday

If it was raining glorious passing shots and some brilliant baseline tennis in one corner, the other corner at home celebrated Cricket’s brand new World Champion. And, a cracker of a contest it was! The Wimbledon final was expectedly a long one as I could not expect anything less from the 2 top players battlingContinue reading “Stunner of a Sunday”
