The joke is on him.. Why should I be offended?

July 7th, 2016

I no longer subscribe to newspapers or watch television. The news depresses me – the old adage of no news being good news coming true every time. It’s the same everywhere I look, every page I turn. Filmstars on their PR over drive, Politicians on their one-upmanship drivel, and Oh, not to forget the rapists and rich kids of MLA’s  mowing down the poor and homeless in their BMW’s & jaguars. Same shit, different day. So I stay away from it. Totally

Some men are so full of sh**! `

June 30th, 2016

Yesterday at a wonderful dinner hosted by a friend I was repeatedly harangued by a rather ugly man with nerdy glasses who claimed to be a financier of Bollywood films. He gave his name & credentials many times but i didnt bother to listen. Kept following me around asking me where I am from and what I do and blah blah. When i requested him to leave me alone he says”I’m only asking because my wife and kid want to know who this wonderful woman is that I am talking to”

Dear Kaveri…

June 24th, 2016

Dear Kaveri,

I have never told you this before but now I must…

I remember that day so well. I was all of 10 years old myself and waking up from a vivid dream, I grandly announced ‘I’m going to have a daughter. She will be the most beautiful girl in the world & I will name her Kaveri’ Your ‘Thatha’ ie grandfather-  had laughed out loud, teasing me that I needed to first find myself a husband for that. That was easy. I had seen your daddy on TV a few times and thought “Oooh, wouldn’t I like my ‘to be born daughter Kaveri’ to have those twinkling eyes’…? So I set out on the task to find the perfect father for you. The one with the twinkling eyes

Being Indian

March 16th, 2016

A few months ago just after the Paris attacks in November 2015, my beautician Shabana who comes to my home in a burqa and whose care I have been under for more than a decade, had told me with fear in her eyes that the head of her Majlis had informed those in her community that the heinous Paris attacks had been carried out by Christians and Hindus disguised as Muslims under their burqas. ‘It’s a worldwide conspiracy against Islam’ she had gasped

Politicians or goondas?

February 17th, 2016
 Why has accepting bullying become a part of our lives? Why on earth must we tolerate anti social riff raff? What is this culture we have allowed to permeate our lives that accepts hooliganism and sycophancy to the extent that we can no longer differntiate right from wrong ? Why is everyone so afraid? And what are we afraid of? When did politicians turn into our tormentors rather than our protectors?
 A kin of a senior level national politician creates a drunken ruckus in my society complex -( I dont think this kin of a senior politician does anything himself except that his claim to fame is to be the brother of of a senoir Congress Politician) Mr Goonda beats up the security staff to the extent of breaking a watchmens leg, smashes our security camers, creates a riot like situation that the entire street can hear, and has the gall to tell me-(only because no one else dared complain) i should visit him at his home at a time convenient to him! so he can explain his violent & feudal behaviour? He says he has got the watchman( the one with the broken leg) a job washing cars in our complex and so why am interfering in the matter or maligning him?

His wife in the meantime- (With an entourage of suitably servile looking followers and videograhers ) barges onto my front door, threatening me with the most ridiculous excuses for her uncivil behaviour, telling me its none of my business what happens on her floor as I am not her immediate neighbour & so better back off warna….!!!  Anurag kashyap & RGV would hire her pronto- i mean its that level of a serious snap of her fingers. As third rate and unimaginable as you can get

‘ I warn you I will upload this on social media and so …’ Madame rubbish warns me

boy oh boy- blog coming soon. Watch this space
