The Real Fiction

All that we experience, our perceptions – sights & insights – seem like a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. There are no lines dividing anything anywhere & existence rides upon interpretations. This blog will surf, fly, jog, dive, swim, jump & at times even hobble through planes of experiences that will include poetry, protests, design, tales, photo-tales and whatever else is discovered & needs to be shared.

Between hating and loving watchdogs

Between hating and loving watchdogs

Even when I was a student of kindergarten there was a sense of liberty and free thought that was a part of my existence and had even told one smiling teacher who stood near my desk watching me draw, ‘Ma’am, I’ll show my drawing to you once I’ve finished it. Your standing here disturbs my...
I am who I am, and who I wanna be

I am who I am, and who I wanna be

This mantra is all over the social media today. The young as well as the young at heart swear by it… and believe me, it isn’t just the virtual space that is impregnated and incepted with these words, one sees them reflected in real life as well. Cool and smart is all over. Not just...
It’s always about imagination

It’s always about imagination

Imagination rules… Imagination scores… and imagination wins every time, without exception. You see, creation is a result of imagination… and so whenever I see a new gadget, device or even a car all I try to see is how well imagination has been used. Is it unusual? Are there elements of the unexpected? Let me...
You can drive

You can drive

  You can expect the unexpected when bloggers get together to do anything… and believe me, this isn’t at all unpredictable. There will be lobbies made without anyone even trying, there will be jibes and snide remarks to hear if you have come with your ears cleaned up, and there will invariably be the whispered...
Solve mysteries in style

Solve mysteries in style

Stand straight, breathe in deeply and then look around with a mind that is unclogged by the day’s problems. In place of the mustiness of routine you will see the mysteries of the universe and you’ll probably sing to yourself, ‘What a wonderful world…’ Now then, I’m not just talking about the very new mystery...
Let us extend our stay on earth

Let us extend our stay on earth

  I have no idea if politicians will still want us extend our stay on earth once we are all educated enough to vote sensibly… but what I do know is that our parliamentarians are certainly aware of the sort of pollution that plagues our cities. Take Delhi where according to the World Health Organization...
Way beyond Ultra HD

Way beyond Ultra HD

If the PM Mr Modi can talk of a 56 inch chest, Arvind Kejriwal can be linked to a 49 day government, and Rahul Gandhi can afford to disappear for 57 days… why can’t I miss a 50 inch device that I fell in love with? Particularly if the device that I am talking about...
Your decisions are in your hands

Your decisions are in your hands

Yes, your decisions are quite literally in your hands in these times when the smartphone and smart apps are poised to drown the past dominance of gadgets like the laptops and desktops. I personally feel rather joyous to find someone stand right there in the middle of a thousand people, swipe out his smartphone, and...
Between here and there

Between here and there

Most of the time my body lets me believe that life is a thriller and I am like a detective going from here and there in search of all sorts of culprits. Yes, sometimes it is an overdose of harmful sugars and sometimes it is because of a salt invasion. As a result it is...
The collector of celebrations

The collector of celebrations

There is a collector of celebrations in each of us. Look at me… the moment I get an idea to write on, it is time to celebrate with a smile and get down to dress it in words and sentences and save it. Photography is a celebratory moment for some as is downloading movies or...
CEOs Know that Strategy isn’t a Solo Sport

CEOs Know that Strategy isn’t a Solo Sport

Yes, CEOs aren’t hermits carrying a Hasselblad, wearing a Tissot, driving a Jaguar, and partying on a private yacht. They interact with people and technology and know how to get the best of both worlds by strategically using one in convergence with the other. Strategy isn’t a solo sport for sure. However, the days of...
Cricket and all the madness all around

Cricket and all the madness all around

‘When do they begin?’ I asked. ‘What?’ ‘The cricket matches.’ ‘They’re always on,’ Specky said with a smile, and then added, ‘But if you mean the IPL 2015, then KKR won their first match yesterday. Mumbai Indians are obviously inconsolable in their defeat.’ I just stared at her. I mean there was a time when...
