The Guilt Trip

“I suggest that you opt for products with less chemicals, blow dry once in a while and stay away from hair spa traps” said no hairstylist ever.  Every trip made to a salon, either guilty or obligatory, has to leave you feeling a little insecure about your hair or skin.

Bazaar of Abandoned Memories

Looking back at the person that I used to be, I can safely declare that these days I am less judgemental about people and second-hand books. The former still find ways and means to stifle my kindness towards them but the latter will and forever be better than most people I know. I had written... Continue Reading →

The fabled winter failed to squash the spirit of the kingdom dwellers who had gathered in the city square to watch their queen’s execution. A hush fell over the mumbling crowd when Cersei Lannister was dragged handcuffed to the scaffold. Even in her last... Continue Reading →

I am a Doordarshan Girl. You?

Whenever someone asks my age, I tell them that I am a Doordarshan kid and I am old enough to have witnessed a metamorphosis and evolution in entertainment. Asking a woman her age is bad enough but once they get an answer of this kind, I am usually cornered with no questions at all. Battle... Continue Reading →

Human or Machine?

One of the most powerful statements that I came across while watching ‘The Imitation Game’ had something to do with machines. According to Alan Turing “A computer would deserve to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human”.  Pondering about the same after the movie, I cast a...
