Shaving is a fine art

Even Picasso experimented with it. He was a man, wasn`t he? It doesn`t elevate me to the levels of Picasso, but it is true that I have also experimented with shaving. I started as early as last century…yes…in 1990 – when I was still a young lad of 15. I still cannot forget Gitanjali Iyer …

CC & BCC

I did not know this. And I bet you didn`t know either…unless you work with NASA or ISRO or Mossad. We all CC our mails in our daily life. But do you know what CC stands for? Carbon Copy? There, I got you! It is wrong. I came to know yesterday that CC stands for …

Holi hai!

Though I have had my share of Holi celebrations, now it is but a faint remembrance. I am not allowed to celebrate the festival here in Tamil Nadu….they say I am a Dravidian. And it is supposed to be an Aryan spring festival. On Holi day (which incidentally was also a holiday) all the Gujaratis …

Diseases – the evolution

Yesterday was World Tuberculosis Day. Good that people from different walks of life came together for a walk. No, none of these people were coughing (baring the smokers).

It carried news we would have otherwise missed because none of the newspapers, magazines and websites we read would carry them. In short, Mediaah! was slowly but steadily turning heads. Unfortunately for Pradyuman Maheshwari …

On why I hate chicken

I am a vegetarian. Don`t ask me why. I don`t want to go through the turmoil all over again. On second thoughts, I might as well tell you. At least…you won`t be addicted to chicken….and in the process lose your life. This happened well before my marriage, so you won`t find Rekha`s name mentioned in …

Fallen Angels

This is a true story, but the names and places have been changed to ensure their privacy. Not so long back, in a village there used to live a young man called Rajan. He was always insecure… sometimes he would even end up taking pregnancy tests. Of course, he never got pregnant. It was very …
