The Digital Dehumanization

In the last visit to my hometown, I witnessed something less usual. While I was out shopping in the market with my father, I had chance meetings with several people; people who I hadn’t met in the last fifteen years…. Continue Reading →

Short Autobiography of a Whatsapping Man!

There was a time when we just loved some people at the parties because they had an inexhaustible supply of jokes to keep everyone entertained. When we made greetings cards for close friends, visited them or at least called them on… Continue Reading →

A Beautiful Criminal

In the grind and mundaneness of our daily lives, we often forget that there is so much joy in the little things that we ignore each day. And sometimes, we are reminded that we didn’t realize things that are always around us… Continue Reading →

Happiness doesn’t Come in Square Feet

I had promised my kid that come summer vacation, I would take him to a village. A real village. Not the road side settlements behind a few trees on the fringes of towns. So off we went to a place… Continue Reading →

Living in Death
