However, the Sankranti festival usually refers to Makara Sankaranti, or the transition of the Sun from Dhanu rashi (Sagittarius) to Makara rashi (Capricorn). Makar Sankranti is a major harvest...

The big fat Indian wedding.

An open letter to SRK.
Dear SRK, First and foremost, let me congratulate you on creating the biggest ‘product’ in the history of Indian cinema. I call Ra.One a product simply because it’s not just about the mind-blowing (literally) experience you have provided in the theatre. It’s about the constant & consistent torture we have been through, ever since you started ‘dreaming’ about taking Bollywood a ‘step ahead’. ...
My life. My story.
When I was 19, my idea of a successful career was to earn thrice as much as my age. I didn’t fare well on this criterion though, I barely made 15,000 rupees a month till my 21st birthday. Having said that, I had zero responsibilities and a five-figure salary was enough to have a good time every weekend. Especially on people’s birthdays, free booze & drinks. Ofcourse! When I was 21, all my...

Cricket & I.
I am an Indian. I celebrate a million festivals while cribbing about the pollution, noise & nuisance it creates. I have numerous relatives who live with the illusion that they need to control my existence. I have an opinion about everything in life irrespective to whether it’s asked or not. I eat more and exercise less. At times, I live like a beggar. Other times, I am the king of the world....
Chapter 2 – Pearly whites.
Three days ago. “Wake up, Arya.” She said, as she made her way to the bathroom. “Close the damn curtains.” Screamed Arya, hiding his face under the pillow. His head was still hurting from last night’s fight. “Wake up! It’s already 11 and we have to reach Jatin’s house at 12!” Vanita blurted out while brushing her teeth. “2 minutes, Mom.” Said Arya, as he tried to reach for his watch. “I am...
Chapter 1 – Shivers.
He stood still. Holding the remote in one hand & cigarette in the other. His thumb was firmly pressing the ‘+’ button, changing the channels every 2 seconds. The cigarette hadn’t been lit. He stood still, without realizing where he was. Seconds turned in minutes and minutes into hours. He stood there flipping the channels, ignoring the barks of his beloved dog. Light breeze was now causing...

A new beginning...
I open my eyes and get disturbed by the light , which pierces my body and soul like a shining beacon. And yet, am not very delighted as I’ve gotten used to my cocoon , my circle, my space and the darkness… I cry out loud in rebellion and in sheer need for breath and realise I just took my first and gave my lungs the exercise they badly needed. I want this fresh air and I so don’t want it, my mind...

Let me be
Let me be The thought you think But never speak That secret treasure You in solitude seek. The wind you feel But cannot possess That beauty of nature Without access.. The voice which is very distant Yet very near, That memory you cannot share, But is always dear. That bond without strings, Untouched by fear, The bright day When the sky is clear.. The smile you smile, But cannot justify. That...
Don 2 - The Chase Begins - Official Trailer
One more from the list of masterpieces, from Director Farhan Akhtar, Don 2 Hope, Shahrukh Khan (Don) doesn’t overdo himself. But I am sure, Farhan must have taken the best from him.

The cops don’t change from the...
