Power Shift by Alvin Toffler

Amazing book. Close to five hundred pages and just 100 Indian rupees (at the old books store). A proud me carried the book home, refusing the khaki cover the shopkeeper gave me to carry the book in. I was elated. I was about to read a guy, who could see future. I had been told …

Sonia yet to find friends

Very special, double strong coffee …err…correspondent Jamshed V Rajan will be covering the Election beat. Irregularly of course. By Jamshed V Rajan Delhi: This scribe did not expect somebody of the stature of Mr Vajpayee to come out against Sonia Gandhi`s nationality.

Getting to know sex

No it will not deny it. I am a sex maniac. Infact, when I was seven years old, I fantasised relationships with Gitanjali Iyer, Rini Khanna and Usha Alberquqe – news readers of the Doordarshan era. It is another thing that the three pretty ladies never knew that I existed. After that it was the …
