Built Up & Torn Down

There is something very strangely unsettling about power. Authority is merely a by-product of responsibility: If you are qualified to enough carry out a task, you are responsible for it’s outcome and need to be granted the required authorizations to carry it out efficiently. But most “powerful” people forget this teeny tiny detail. They build…

Bowling Alley

I haven’t really tried my hand at bowling, though some of my friends did try to take me to a bowling alley, with very little luck. Even if I do try my hand at a strike, I’m pretty sure, I’d end up with either a gutter ball, or a three-pin-score. But whatever I end up…

On and Off the Trending Train

Like I mentioned before, I am not too keen on cooking unless I have cravings or am hungry. Food fads and trends don’t really excite me too much, unless I wish to craft around it. Although I am a coffee-holic, it’s too much work to just make a cup of coffee that I’d love in…

Fancy A Break?

A more traditional Indian breakfast, depending on the region you come from, is light yet filling. You’d barely find many people consuming cornflakes back in the days, but now our on-the-fast-lane life is making corn our first meal. (Pretty much like beefing up cattle to be slaughtered. Ironic, isn’t it?) To get kids eating some…

Strings of street lights,Even stop lights,Blink a bright red and…

Friendships?

Momo Love

I’m not a momo fan: apart from the traditional Modak or koyakattai, dhoklas and idlis, I don’t enjoy steamed foods too much. Fried momos I can’t resist though. These are not edible in any case, this plate of yummilicious momos are from the zero calories range of miniatures from suenosouvenir. Do check our her page…
