Kenny Sebastian came up with this video about the women's purse. It was meant for educating men, but I really should say, it was informative to me as well. You will know why as I analyse his revelations, but first you might want to watch this video to get the context. You - a guy - could … Continue reading Analysis: The Mystery of The Female Purse by Kenny Sebastian
There is a beautiful stretch of road I often take to get home. Being in the city, I almost always avoid the central areas and junctions. While the alleyways are narrow, long, winding and time consuming, I prefer the coolness of those interiors rather than the heat and pollution of the main roads. Lined with trees, … Continue reading The Stranger on the Bike

Food for thought - Suppose you are creating something. But in the process, you destroy ten other things. Is the creation worthwhile? The idea has been implanted well. Increase the content of greed in there, won't you? Due to their greed for wealth, fame, and power, they'll double their production and pollute the environment. They'll … Continue reading A Conquest is Brewing
I have been listening to the vicious revving of the chainsaw since yesterday. Last time this happened I remember looking out my window helplessly, willing it to stop. The sound was haunting.

I walked up to him, stealthily drew a line on his spine, with the tip of my slender, cold index finger. A shiver ran through him. I turned him around, took a cursory look at him & sighed.

In Trivandrum, Kerala, there were many street dogs that bit children and adults alike and … Continue reading Me, On Behalf of Those Animals
I walked stealthily, my eyes foraging the mess. I walked away from the field, towards the Horizon. The battle was over, silence took over. I couldn't be sure, were the enemies all dead? They could lurk behind the shadows and strike me unawares. I had gained some distance, when I broke into a run. The sound of my … Continue reading Leaving the Battlefield
In the earlier post, I mentioned about how Christmas is important to me. There was a twist in the tale though. On 22nd, I was informed that I should accompany my sister to Bangalore for a training.
