The other day, I was watching Animal Planet with my three-year-old son; it was a documentary on animals that hunt, concentrating mainly on the lion, the tiger, and the cheetah. These are three formidable animals of prey, and each has its own distinct style which complements his body type and food habits. The documentary got […]

Recently, I was talking to the customer service people of our mobile service provider. I had one of the worst experiences, and am now thinking seriously about changing our mobile service provider. To overcome the feeling of anger and frustration, I decided to have dinner at a nice restaurant around the corner near my house. […]

About a year ago, a new restaurant opened on the way to my office. Cafe Bahar, which specializes in Indian and tandoori dishes, already has quite a following in the city. It is a chain of restaurants that was established in the middle of the 20th century, and has maintained its quality of food. I decided to give it […]

Everyone should visit the kitchen of a big restaurant. There is a main chef, a sous chef, and many others working under their guidance. You’ll not find the head chef single-handedly trying to do everything. He delegates tasks, keeping in mind the higher objective of getting work done. It is not possible for one person […]

As I was driving to work today, I was caught in a traffic snarl. Nothing new, if you ask me. But, this one was bad – ugly, in other words.

And indubitably, we like the ones where there’s this guy who looks so sad and terrified that the sky might just fall on his head, loses at something over and over again till he finally gets the inspiration to work extremely hard and manages to succeed. But, reality […]

When I was around nine or ten, I realized that I was not what someone would call a “great looking fellow”. And for a child that age, that realization can prove to be a strong blow. I sulked around, not knowing what to do, or how to rectify it (I thought I had made some mistake).

Happiness is an oasis. We can live there, we can move past. We live in demanding times, challenging times. There is no guarantee of either safety or of insured happiness.

We walk through this life but once. We all have a hidden desire to leave an impact at some level or the other and surely with some people or more. It is a baggage we all carry. Many would believe that this is an empty desire and we are not naturally gifted, we believe in wrongly that impact making people are those who make headlines. Our examples are typically politicians, film stars and cricketers. The truth is they do not make the World. Even more interestingly they do not constitute the core that makes a good society or a system that guarantees better living.

“Focus” – the teacher shouts. “Focus! Your exams are coming, concentrate on your exams and do not let your creative interests distract you from your exams.” The parent chides. As a result, a whole generation of young children has become unipolar in their lifestyle and achievements. Somewhere among them are people who defy such dictates, […]
