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.

Conversations with virtual reality

Conversations with virtual reality

Conversations with what is real and what is unreal has a sibling now… the universe of virtual reality. Even Zuckerberg wrote in March 2014 that the day isn’t far when ‘we believe this kind of immersive, augmented reality will become a part of daily life for billions of people’. Geoff Mulgan declares that ‘as the...
You aren’t going to fade away – 3

You aren’t going to fade away – 3

When Douglas McArthur mentioned that ‘old soldiers never die; they just fade away’ he did not really mean they intended to retreat from our memory because he was the one who had also said: ‘We are not retreating – we are advancing in another direction’. This is as true now as it probably was in...

You aren’t going to fade away – 1

You aren’t going to fade away just as DSLRs aren’t going to be extinct. Neither are books disappearing… nor our daily newspapers on their way out. To fade out is not their destiny. ‘The pager disappeared, didn’t it?’ pointed out Specky, my wife. ‘Yes, it did,’ I replied, ‘after all even Dodos aren’t with us...

On Travel

Travel is all about the music and poetry of exploration… every time you move out of home and navigate safely through strange countries and stranger cities, you experience an uplifting peppy feeling that refreshes you. This is the sort of feeling that I had when I keyed in these short two-line rhymes that had travel...
HR is the best Achaar – a lesson in writing with conviction

HR is the best Achaar – a lesson in writing with conviction

This happened a long time ago… this happened when I was heading corporate communications and was, therefore, responsible for the copy that was to be given for a recruitment ad. So I walked into the cabin of the HR head and was literally surprised to see that they were having a PEPPY ‘achaar’ party. Achaar...
The magical marriage app

The magical marriage app

Well, you may not believe this but navigation through technology for the music of a peppy marriage is possible. All you need is an imaginary app (because no has yet thought of creating one that my rhyming couplets talk about) to make it all happen. And if this really happens, all one can say with...
Of bloggers and blunders

Of bloggers and blunders

God in his infinite wisdom decided to place bloggers and blunders only a vowel away from each other in the dictionary. You don’t think there is anything in this that needs to be taken seriously… right? You feel this is simply another chronology coincidence that I have stumbled upon and that, like the media, I...
The fine art of finding something you weren’t looking for

The fine art of finding something you weren’t looking for

This is an everyday occurrence with me. I find things in the book-shelf, almirah, cupboard, and even on my study table that I am not really looking for now but remember that when I had wanted them they were not to be found anywhere. So I have speeded from desperation to nonchalance in a blink...
The nation wants to know

The nation wants to know

Don’t you worry, I am not going to make this post a political flumadiddle because it isn’t going to mention what Pappu did recently or where Feku is right now (though we know they’re both getting acquainted with the textual details of French wines). So what else is there that the nation actually wants to...
