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.

Was it the impending fear of a massive blood-bath that made Hosni Mubarak give up? Were blogging and micro-blogging the real heroes? Did Gandhian principles once again rise and conquer? Or is it...

Learning from the parking-lot

Remember that parking-incident that I quoted in the previous issue? Let me describe it again… “A very interesting thing happened as I was walking towards Gulab Bhavan this morning. There was an office-goer parking his motor-bike on the stand. After the bike was parked, he noticed that it was jutting ahead of the line of...
