Using good crockery even at home
Posted on February 04,2013
“Nah-ah! Don’t you dare touch that crockery for guests.That’s not for our use...” How many times have we heard this dialogue till our teenage? How many times have we screamed this very dialogue to our children? Hmmm, the counts are endless. The other day I was watching ‘Friends’ on TV where Ross asks a question - “Into how many categories, does Monica categorize her towels?” ...

Full of Life Punjabi's
Posted on January 24,2013
Call us loud-mouths, ostentatious, gluttony-ridden, flamboyant and blah blah blah! Do we care? Not in a million years! “It’s my way or the highway”, that’s pretty much our motto for a happy life. The gabroos are overtly masculine and the soni mutyaars are naturally blessed with looks to kill. Tandoori chicken will always be our comfort food, brezeer does not qualify as “alcohol”,...

friend's wedding
Posted on January 23,2013
First things first, the title refers to the famous song and not to the namesake movie. Movie was rather bad, so let’s not mention it here. I did not add “Aaj” before the title and that’s ironic, as it’s been 10 months since completing my MBA and it seems, one or other of my friends is getting married almost every day. Facebook, our generation’s official messenger /photo album/ event ma...

India Vs England at PCA Mohali on 23rd January 2012
Posted on January 24,2013
Sitting on the terrace with your favorite people, sipping hot coffee on a cold winter evening would satisfy quite some but amongst crowd in the same brutal weather beating the dhol and screaming my chords, India…India… Totte Totte (chicks,chicks) is what I have never missed since 1996 at the Mohali cricket stadium. My first cricketing banner, “Australians if you are heroes, then please pl...

It was 14th March 1987, sometime around 1 am at night; sorry can’t give you the exact time. Because no one kept note of the exact minutes and seconds when he was born, but what we know for sure is that he became a Piscean. From the day he was born, he became a part of this unique group of people who are symbolised by "Fish", governed by "Neptune", and have their lucky days as Thursdays and Mo...

kai po che movie
Posted on January 22,2013
The entertainment world is following a very safe trend these days. You pick up a very popular and well read work of fiction and cinematise it. Is this act of enacting the much contemplative work of an author justified? An author spends countless hours in taking inspiration and putting all the random thoughts in chronological order to make a mere writing readable and appealing. All of this is pr...

just friends
Posted on January 21,2013
“Whenever I catch a glimpse of HIM, I skip a heartbeat; whenever he needs my help, I present my selfless best to give him more than he asks for; whenever he needs a listening ear, I give him my undivided attention and yet I am just a friend.” No wonder girls are being crowned as ‘emotional fools’! For most girls, it starts off as a stupid crush with little or no realisation at all what ...

inkaar to harassment
Posted on January 22,2013
We live in a society where easy air becomes a strong opinion as soon as it is there on media. The partially liberal and partially constructive society we dwell in, fumes at the slightest air of something that is just suggestive. The recent release of Sudhir Mishra’s 'Inkaar', brought whiff of fresh air to the much customary topic in the modern world. Sexual harassment at work place has evolve...

A blue jersey No. 10 and an Aussie Cap No. 123, no wonder now I realize how pathetic was my color sense that I matched the two while playing amateurish cricket, but the combo till date remains my favorite with the owners of the uniforms, leaving the global cricket with a bump to ponder . Driving, hooking, cutting, pushing, wiping and a couple more terms from the book was best illustrated by the...

single girl
Posted on January 16,2013
‘Kudi da vyaah karo hun’, so says biji, tayiji, chachiji and all the ‘worried’ aunties and grannies of my family. Off late, my ‘single’ status seems to be the talk of the house and all the social gatherings leaving no choice for me but smile and smartly escape the uncomfortable discussion. Oh did I mention, all of a sudden, there are way too many people who wish to play a ‘cupid’ i...
