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.

An emotional acre on the road

An emotional acre on the road

  An emotional acre on the road – Zica review A car isn’t just a car but attempts to be an emotional bond. A relationship. It tries to be a drivable emotional acre on the road. Every time. Each of them. Some succeed and some do not. This is so much like any of our...

The story of Chinky, Thulla, and Tambi

What is more offensive and derogatory – a name that is spoken with some affection though sometimes with ignorance wrapped around, or the Shiv Sena asking Biharis, workers from UP and Gujarati businessmen to leave their ‘amchi Mumbai’? Or people in J&K, the NE, and a few other regions calling you ‘Indian’ when you go...

Photography, philosophy, and a spoonful of Surf excelmatic

I watched keenly as my wife poured a careful measure of Surf excelmatic in the protruding chamber of the washing machine, close it, put in a select number of clothes, firmly shut the front door and then do some magical fiddling of the auto controls… and that’s it… she beckoned me that we were now...

Want to be a part of a revolution?

Revolution.  This is more than a mere buzz-word today. This word has evolved into an attitude, a way of life, a symbol of independence, and something that we all want to be associated with… Revolutions are there in technology as well. One of the newest revolutions that is on its way to India is the...
Can I dodge that snowflake there?

Can I dodge that snowflake there?

The flake, being just a flake, has a will That surely lies elsewhere. Is it the clouds or wind or the hill Or something else elsewhere? I wish I know, sadly said the flake Then I’d have floated far Riding on my cloud powered by the wind Yes, I’d have floated far To little kids...

Surfing the net for a muse

Surfing the net for a muse

I look around These ravaged times Discovering struggling bits and bytes Pick them up to make them chime And wonder at their flights! I am a healer Of words that lie disparaged In heaps on highways where no one treads And suture them to build a maze Or simply sculpt the lonesome shreds! I click...

BIG B – Life on hinges of Hinglish

Let me start this review with a Buddha quote as a statutory warning: ‘Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.’ Well, the BIG here isn’t BIGG of BIGG BOSS, the B...

Inner Voices

There is a lot to earn if you learn To let in art inside your heart And never rush, for you may crush Or just scramble everything apart! You get thematic if you’re mathematical And never sick if just physical But remember that every member Of an actuary can’t act theatrical! Poetry, we know, is...

Man, Woman, and Poetry!

There is an intrinsic spiritual connection between a man, woman, and poetry. I came across a few quotes trying to crack the mystery that woman is and some wanting to dive deeper into the man-woman relationship. To my surprise I found they held in their folds some spicy, tangy, and zingy lessons for men as...
Shadows Never Evolve.

Shadows Never Evolve.

I’m sure you’ve never heard of a shadow behaving intelligently though they love to appear in deep thought! They peep out when they ought not to curiously caress people make worlds seem darker and rush over words without reading a bit! Now what I don’t like a bit about shadows is that they’re never still....
